of your head. When this reaches the crown, imagine the spectrum of color exploding into a blinding eruption of silver-white light that sends sparks away from you ... . Once you have been visualizing this for a certain period of time ..., you may ... hear the buzzing of bees, the sound of breaking surf, rushing winds, or ... a sound that resembles a rush of storm wind. ...

by Starhawk. She briefly discusses the nature of consciousness projection in the "Trance" chapter. ... To practice remote viewing ..., make time before getting out of bed to practice this technique. ...

p. 96

"there are three passageways or tunnels that connect the physical world to the higher and lower realms of existence : the death tunnel, the lower tunnel, and the birth tunnel. ...

p. 97

These etheric tunnels are actually great vortices of energythat have a powerful magnetic {inthe Mesmeric sense} force that propels the soul body forward."

"The death tunnel is the passage to higher realms beyond the earth plane ... from the death experience ... . ...

p. 98

A golden light shines from a distance {from the far end of the tunnel?}, but those not experiencing death will not witness the blinding white light so many people report {when having undergone a "near-death" experience} ... . Within this tunnel I have seen pulsing spheres of light, some spinning ... while others remain stationary. Among this light energy I have also seen tiny flames of color the size of blinking fireflies. ... Your flight through the death tunnel will be one of tremendous speed and exhileration."

p. 99

"There is a separate passageway that leads to the lower astral level. ... This tunnel is dark, with a density in vibration that will make you feel as if you are traveling through a thick {viscous} liquid. There is also a sensation of extreme cold and dampness.

p. 100

... the lower tunnel is ... with ... thought forms the color of muddy green, grayish yellow, and smoky brown."

"The birth tunnel is the passage souls use when reincarnating on the earth plane. This exquisite vortex of energy propels the soul essence toward a new life. ...

p. 101

The birth tunnel is filled with beautiful light and shines as if made of sun-reflective gold. This gateway vibrates with even deeper and brighter color bursts than the death tunnel. ...

p. 104

Communication can vary from telepathy to projection of auric light ... . ... Sometimes telepathy results in a simple exchange of visual images ... . ...

There are mazes and etheric dwelling places within the earth -- shimmering, prismatic cities within clouds ...; spirit lights blinking ...

p. 105

among trees; faces and dancing forms in fire; and haunting, singing beings beneath waterfall pools ... . ... Ultimately, you will find layers of spiritual life that overlap and interact with each other. ...

During one memorable journey, I came face to face wth a male sea spirit.

The haunting beauty of his iridescent face

{This is the Chinese "Pearly Emperor" god.}

was framed by ... indigo-black hair. His lower torso was a swirling prism of light energy that resembled the graceful glossamer of a fish tail. ... As soon as we touched our curious palms together, I felt an exhilerating shock of energy flash through my entire soul body."

pp. 106-7 Astral parallel of universe

p. 106

"with the suggestion from a soul guide ..., I willed myself to the sun. ... I suggest you do the same. ... After I saw the sun, ... I saw quickly moving forms of silver light dart ... within the glimmering gases of the stars.

Each heavenly body has an etheric sovereign ... . These supreme, celestial rulers ... are accessible if you enter their psychic worlds with humility ... . ... Though most are extremely elusive and selective in who[m] they choose to appear to, with patience and respect these kingdoms can not only be explored but their rulers can serve as spiritual teachers as well.

Over a two-month period, I traveled to Neptune ... . Its ruler is a massive female energy draped in cascades of aqua and sapphire blue. ... Silver-white lightships are ...

p. 107

within her astral realm, as well as strange but beautiful energies ... submissive to her. Like the astral kingdoms of other planets, Neptune houses many realms within realms. Countless glimmering stairways create labyrinths of light, and blue and lavender mists curtain most of the areas I explored. ...

The bright, reflective side of the moon is ... a silver-blue world of painfully beautiful and fragrant flowers ... . The Queen of the moon is the most elusive of the planetary ... beings ... . I remember her as having ... upturned, elongated eyes, and a glistening frame of silver hair ... . Her entire body was enshrouded in sparkling white mists."

"The third plane of the lower astral ... . ... All sexual demons, including the incubus and succubus, reside here ... . ... During my journey in this realm, I witnessed spirits in violent orgasmic ecstasy absorbing smoke-colored sexual energy from an unknown source.

p. 111

... The landscape of this realm is dark and jagged with blackish-crimson haze resembling thick fog. Tar-like substances drip into swirling ... pools."

[4th plane of the lower astral.] "It is indescribably frigid and is basically a wasteland of iced-over trees ... . ... I saw ... it took every ounce of strength to fight paralysis."

[5th plane of the lower astral.] "The countless beings here can aptly be called hell's angels. Their ... diversity, and dark wings of energy cannot be imagined. There is a ... massive being, beast-like in nature and appearance, that seems to govern this plane."

pp. 112, 114, 116 Transitional planes

p. 112

"I will never forget traveling through beautiful purple mist to a place where many bridges connected portions of the landscape. Beyond it, the plane resembled ... places on earth, but vibrated in deeper color intensity."

p. 114

"As you travel within the transitional plane ..., with experience you may also learn how to help troubled souls cross over the threshold of death. ... The spirit cannot accept death because it still clings to ... the life that was lived ... . This is where you can become a spirit helper ... . I worked as a helper for a few years, and I was thrown into it by a sneaky by determined soul guide. ... She [the soul-guide] told me to go over to her [a certain dead woman's soul] and explain to her that she was no longer in her body ... . ...

remember her life as if she were viewing a movie."

You will see glittering rivers of dazzling colors with sparkling beds of clarion crystals. ... Among the ... things you will see are amber-lit orchards ... with succulent fruit ... tasting like peach, mango, tangerine, and pineapple combined. ... I have encountered

p. 119

the unforgettable energy of Dionysus here ..., so if you see a shimmering being with the form of a perfected youth, flame-blue eyes, and a dark river of hair draped in deep purple light, you will know who it is. ...

Within these sound realms, you may come across a particularly large celestial city devoted to spiritual healing ... . The city's crystalline cathedral-like structure shines in the deepest shade of rose. ... If and when you find this extraordinary place, you may also see countless light ships descending and ascending. Many times these ... enter our physical realm ... . Yes, there are other beings in and beyond our solar system, but ... actually ... of etheric reality. ... This city, called Teesha .., is open to your exploration. ... If you find Teesha, be sure to journey through one of the immense meadows that encircles the city. Each flower within these fields radiates a different shade of spellbinding pink."

pp. 120-1 plane of Pure Thought {= Mental Plane}

p. 120

"In order to gain access to the fourth plane, first travel to the third plane, the plane of creative force.

Within the third plane, open the throat and brow chakra by placing both hands on each center and move them in a clockwise direction. (... Clockwise for opening, counterclockwise for closing.) ...

{This is the process for attaining to the "mental body" (manas-maya-kos`a) from the astral body.}

p. 121

The plane of pure thought houses all ... knowledge. This plane is a mecca for spiritual seekers due to its innumerable etheric libraries, universities, and learning spaces solely devoted to spiritual and intellectual sciences ... and philosophies inspired by higher mind ... . The Akashic Records, the most vast and significant of spiritual libraries, ... This celestial "hall of records" holds soul information of every person, entity, and spirit of all planes of existence including events, past lives, future lives ... . ... No matter which learning center or library you explore on the fourth plane and its subplanes, ... you may simply put your hand on a volume of information and automatically know its contents. ...

The landscape of the planet is very intense in color, and light emanates from every spirit and structure. All libraries and universities here ... appear as polished crystal, gleaming gemstone, or pure diamond-bright light. The environment, though, is constantly changing and transforming due to the ... number of thought energies interacting simultanously. Each time I visit the fourth plane, I witness objects, structures, even mountains appear or disappear in front of me within ... a second."

Always be sure to open all chakras that you closed before returning to your physical body" {or rather, to one's spirit-body left behind in the plane of Pure Thought?}.
