Traveling to other dimensions using one's finer astral body has always intrigued man, as havelevitation, invisibility, and time travel. Throughout the 20th century, many fine books have beenwritten about these topics.For over a quarter century, I have been fascinated by the Astral World and the possibility of astral travel. My introduction to this enticing subject came in the form of tattered old copies of Robert Crookall's
Astral Projection: A Record of Out-of-Body Experiences
Case-book for Astral Projection
.My next encounter with astral projection was H. F. Prevost Battersby's
Man Outside Himself
. AsI continued reading about astral projection and out-of-body experiences (OBE), works by Fox,Muldoon, Powell, Smith, and "YRAM" cluttering my desk and shelves. Each book glimpsed intothe astral world and higher levels. I read time and time again how many had made astral trips, bringing back words of encouragement, prophecy and descriptions of exciting "worlds" beyondours.It soon became evident to both myself and colleagues that a newer, easier and more reliablemethod of projecting out-of-body must be developed, and a tutorial written, to assist first-time (andeven advanced) students on their quest. It was of utmost importance that this work be written toanswer students' questions and, furthermore, to assist the seasoned researcher in conductingtheoretical studies and practical experiments. Therefore, an author of such a guide should be wellversed in the theory, practice and behavioral aspects of such a multidimensional undertaking.Each author, however, left me slightly empty — always expecting more, but always getting lessthan I anticipated. Some works provided a deep philosophical theory of astral travel with no practical application. Others, though expertly written, gave some practical applications but nological theory backing up the author's assumptions. Lastly, there were hundreds of books containingcase study after case study documenting people who suddenly, and without apparent reason,experienced OBEs. Although descriptions were meticulous, these guides contained nothing but aseries of good and intriguing stories. I longed for still more.Finally in the early spring of 1996, I discovered Mr. Robert Bruce's work on the Internet. In aseries of constantly updated articles, I realized he was introducing an excitingly innovativeapproach to out-of-body projection and astral travel. An approach which included sound yetradically different theory, detailed practical experiments and, finally, individual case studies. Inthese studies, the reader meets many people who tried his new techniques and experiments andexperienced almost immediate results in projection. I also discovered, while reading his on-linecomments and correspondences, that Robert meticulously tried and retested his experiments: goingdown many blind alleys and often into some frightening situations, discovering the best and safestavenue for the would-be projector. In some cases, his journeys caused psychical and astral shock. In plain, jargon-free descriptions, Robert lays bare his fears, hopes and dreams. He also outlines many potential problems and practical solutions awaiting the student of astral travel.Over the months, I became an admirer of Robert's works and in September 1996 begancorresponding with this Australian mystic and arcane experimenter. Robert, a true perfectionist, isconstantly fine-tuning his experiments and theories. In this latest endeavor,
,Robert takes his readers on a fascinating mystical, scientific and arcane journey into the astraldimension and beyond.This wonderful book has the potential for allowing anyone, regardless of spiritual or metaphysical training, to achieve a conscious exit from their body and to travel through the variouslevels of finer worlds. In an easily understood and well-illustrated format, Robert slowly guidesreader out of body and into this world of wonder and excitement.
consists of over five years of constant revisions, experiments, research, and personal insight. It is sad this book didnot exist twenty-five years ago when I started my quest. My path would have been far less rockyand my results and discoveries far more amazing if it had.Professor C.E.LindgrenD. Ed., F.C.P., F.R.S.A.
