In the advisory board’s answer to astral projection while sleeping,
(see ‘Is it possible to do “astral traveling” while sleeping?’)
the phenomenon is explained away.
While I don’t have proof, per se, I did some experiments back around 1992 where I would meet a person astrally then get up in the morning and we would email each other before we read our incoming emails and relate our experiences.
While we did not have 100% synchronicity in our experiences (it was more like 90%) we certainly felt that our experiences went far beyond chance occurance. Not that we were the most objective witnesses, but we were convinced that what we were experiencing was real.
Attempts in subsequent years to duplicate the experiments with others have proven unfruitful, which, if it doesn’t say anything about he phenomenon, at least attests to my honesty.
My take on the whole matter is that astral projection or remote viewing certainly is a real occurrance, but that some people are better at it than others (like yoga, martial arts, acrobatics, etc., it takes skill, knowledge and practice).
I have been a meditator for years, and this is only one of numerous psychic phenomenon that I have experienced. I went through a period where I would have a dream, and the dream would become manifest in excruciating detail three days later (excruciating detail such as going to my girlfriend’s house and she introduces me to a man in her living room in his underwear reading the newspaper who is named Robbie and is a friend of her brothers!). Problem was, not all my dreams were prophetic, and I didn’t know which ones would be. Since 1972 I have kept a nightly log of my dreams, so I have the experience recorded, but last I saw my witness, she as in the Patricia Stevens’ School for Girls in Boston. (Marilyn Kanhai, where are you?) Oh, in case you are wondering, her family was from India, it was a hot summer in Greenwich, Connecticut where I grew up and I just viewed it as cultural differences.
Yes, my experiences have “proven” the reality of psychic phenomenon to me, but since it’s all anecdotal all I can say is “Believe it or Not!”
