Starting Seth, Dreams and Projections of Consciousness, really reminded me how much I miss Seth. I really enjoyed Seth Speaks, and remembered how pleasant, comforting, and comprehensive Jane Robert's writing is.
The beginning of the book familiarizes you with Seth, and it gets deeper and deeper. Like many other Out-of-Body Experience / Astral Projection books, this Seth book indicates that you become more psychic as you have more OBEs. You could get insights of people, family members, strangers, etc.. in the OBE states, which you can't get in ordinary life. This has been my experience.
Dreams and Projections of Consciousness isn't a book you read through quickly and easily. This is one of those books that makes you think. I will have to go back and re-read it some day, because many of its ideas and concepts are hard to grasp for the human brain. It is like this part in the last chapter that said something to the likes of; when you have an Out-of-Body Experience, and you go into a really deep multi-dimentional place, as you come back to the physical body, your physical mind is not able to interpret the complex information you were exposed to. It's sort of like people who go deeply into meditation, or drink ayahuasca, and when they come back to this reality, they are not able to explain what they have experienced in words. This book is like that. It really makes you think, and you will find yourself going back and re-reading the same passage multiple times in order to fully grasp its meaning. Here is a good quote:
All experience is basically simultaneous, as I have told you. The dreaming self is aware of its experience in its entirety. You, obviously, are not. You are hardly familiar with your dream experience and barely aware of its significance. (Ch. 18, Probable Selves; Kindle location 4383 of 5610, 78% finished)
I got a little bit confused at some point, asking myself "Is this being written by Rob or Jane?" But Seth touches on a lot of subjects in this book like...
- The Dream World
- The Boundaries and the Confinements of the Dream World
- Dreams and Health
- How to Remember Your Dreams / Develop Dream Recall
- How to Have Out-of-Body Experiences / Astral Projections
- The Rules of the Physical World vs The Rules of the Dream / Astral World
- Hallucinations vs Astral Projections; How to Distinguish Them and Clear Hallucinations out of the Way
- Probable Realities and Probable Selves
- Thought Forms
- Different Bodies (Dream Body, Astral Body, etc..) Seth Calls these 1st Form, 2nd Form, and 3rd Form
- Astral Projection Stories
and much more.
Seth answered my main question, and the question of many other OBE travelers, "Is it safe to leave your body?"
You are safe as long as you do not meddle. You may explore, and freely, and that is all. (Ch. 20, More on Dream Projections; Kindle location 4820 of 5610, 86% finished)
If you are interested in Out-of-Body Experiences / Astral Projections, if you have lots of questions about it, as well as about the Universe beyond our physical world, this book is a must read! I highly recommend reading this book in a chronological order. It starts out slow, especially if you aren't familiar with Seth, but it gets better, and better, and then it just explodes in an orgasm at the end. The end is the best part where Seth goes into detail about Out-of-Body Experiences / Astral Travel. The last chapter was excellent, and the very last paragraph was poetic and an absolute classic way to end the book. I have never read a book with this good of an ending. 4.5/5 stars. A book MUST HAVE for Out-of-Body travelers and explorers, right next to Far Journeys.
