Astral Projection – 240 Questions Answered – A Series Of 5 Videos (FREE)

Astral Projection, an extraordinary psychic phenomenon, is an intriguing, controversial and extremely potent fodder for the strongest of debates.

Astral Projection (commonly called out-of-body-experiences) is a process through which the human consciousness (soul) can temporarily leave the physical body and travel anywhere, unrestricted by any physical boundaries.

There are countless articles and websites catering to Astral Projection, many of which are not very reliable. However, there is one really innovative and recent release that cuts through the clutter, and explains Astral Projection the way it really is.

This is a set of 5 videos that answers 240 Astral Projection questions in a really lucid and clear manner. As I discovered to my surprise, this set of videos is one of its kind, and understandably, growing enormously popular through word of mouth reviews.

These videos truly have valuable information that can demystify all the mysteries shrouding the concept of Astral Projection.

What blew me away was the fact that these 5 videos, with more than 2 hours of playing time, was being released absolutely free!

Created by Abhishek Agarwal, an icon of his own merit in the field of Astral Projection, these videos are aimed at bringing clarity to the entire phenomenon of Astral Projection among the multitude of fake information available online.

Abhishek’s name adds a lot of credibility to the content that has been packed into these videos, as he has more than 15 years of experience in the field.

The videos are very comprehensive and all the intricate details in the concept of astral projection have been explained in layman’s language. They are bound to clear many of your existing doubts on astral travel too.

Abhi scores greatly with the background music used for the videos. The music does not intrude the narration in any way whatsoever but it adds more value to the videos by managing to keep people hooked onto its trance.

The videos start off with references to an online survey conducted by Abhishek among a group of 500 people who were interested in learning more about Astral Travel. He lists down the various questions that he had raised among them, pertaining to their experience in reaching unseen realms, their belief in the entire concept of Astral Travel, and the main reason they are apprehensive in actually trying out their astral adventure.

In this regard, the videos do cover a lot of ground. Ranging from the most juvenile of questions (yes, people can be very naïve in issues regarding the mystic sciences) to the most hard-hitting ones, the videos have them all.

I have seen people trying to fight their inner curiosity by labeling astral projection as dangerous without a second shot. These videos should really prove clear things for them.

A lot of questions in the video revolve around the factor of fear that is usually associated with astral projection, mainly due to the lack of awareness among the public about the entire phenomena.

Astral Projection is a natural way to connect with the unknown and work towards answering the quintessential questions about the purpose of your existence and the ultimate meaning of life.

Many questions also revolve around the methods through which one can project into the astral realm. An Out Of Body Experience (OOBE) can be attained only in a deep state of relaxation or meditation. For this, the entire body needs to be at rest and in a state of effective trance. This can be best attained through a variety of techniques, including visualization and vibration techniques.

The videos advocate the need to have a clear mind, wiped off all worries and everyday disturbances. Once you have the discipline and the dedication towards achieving astral harmony, the other pieces will fall into place by themselves.

Abhishek also makes it clear that there are no risks involved in the process; and that no harm can occur to one’s astral self during the process in the astral plane. Fear is the major stumbling block that prevents many people from experiencing this out of the world experience. So you should make sure never to let fear influence your decisions come what may.

These videos have been neatly prepared, with a crisp narrative that can be easily followed, as Abhishek goes through the 240 frequently, and not-so-frequently asked questions.

Another thing that deserves a mention is that these videos are available entirely free of cost. Information of this magnitude seldom comes free. So it took me a lot of time to convince myself that this was indeed created without any money in mind, and with solely the passion for the astral world in heart.

Not only has Abhishek provided the videos free of cost, he has also included a 100-Page transcript of the entire content that is available on the videos!

Moreover, you can watch the videos using any of the commonly available media players. So that’s one problem down. However, the files are quite large and can take some time to download if your Internet connection is slow. The videos are worth the wait, though!

If you are a first timer in the field of astral projection, you will be floored by the smooth narrative and truckload of information that has been packed into these videos. This is exactly what these videos aim at accomplishing – and they have hit the right chord throughout!

I personally think that these videos should be a huge success, given the work involved in their making and the quality of the final result.

Haunted Books

I do love a good ghost story, even better yet- a haunted book! Perhaps you haven’t yet heard about the haunted book in the DePauw University’s Library Archives in Greencastle, IL. Hoosier State Paranormal investigated the archives on January 20. This particular ghost story is about a book- one particular book: The Poems of Ossian, The Son of Fingal. This book is in former Governor James Whitcomb’s collection that he donated in the early 1800’s.

As legend has it, one student was really enjoying reading this book to the point he couldn’t put it down. Instead of leaving it in the library, he snuck out of the library with it and took it home with him to read. That night, he felt a presence in his room. When he strained in the darkness to see who could be in his room, he saw a spectral finger pointing at him and a voice that asked “Who stole Ossian?”

The student was scared half to death and promptly returned the book the next day. This particular story was what prompted Hoosier State Paranormal to investigate this book. The night of the investigation they recorded two EVP’s. You can listen to them here: EVP Evidence.

If you’d like to learn more about their investigation, check out their website: Hoosier State Paranormal.

Gettysburg’s Ghosts

As promised, I’ve finally located some of my more interesting photos of my trips to Gettysburg.  A little background information – I go on lots of ghost tours, mainly throughout the north-east and mid-Atlantic states.  I’ve never had the kinds of problems that I do with my camera equipment anywhere except in Gettysburg.  I use 2-3 different cameras, usually one Canon 35mm and several digital cameras, primarily an Olympus.  I’m one of those people that carries lots of extra film and batteries, so I’m pretty much prepared for anything.

On my latest trip to Gettysburg, my 35mm did some really weird things on the trolley tour.  It started taking photos by itself while we were walking through the campus area.  Particularly in front of what was the hospital (it is now the administration building).  I wear my camera around my neck when walking around, and I have to admit, when it started snapping away, I was a little surprised to say the least, as were other people in my group.

At any rate, I always get some interesting photos, mainly of light streaks in various colors.  In one particular photo on the trolley, it looks as if there is a green face hovering in the window.  I’ll leave it up to those viewing the pictures as to what they see.  Personally, I’d just like to get some photos without all of the orbs and lights zipping through my photos!

You can view some of these photos from one of my visits to Gettysburg on my website: Gettysburg Ghost Pictures

Here are a few from my most recent visit (shown in the order they were taken). Click on the link to view each photo:

Ghost Lights

Administration Building Sentry Walk

Haunted Camera

Gettysburg Campus Admin Bldg – I don’t know what the black shadow is on this photo of the Admin Bldg (formerly the hospital during the civil war).  There weren’t any objects around me, or other people since I’d gone over by myself to take this photo.  It isn’t my hand either, since it would have been snapping the photo, not in front of the lens, and I have long nails.  If this is a hand, I don’t know who it belongs to!

If anyone else has had this problem with the crazy lights in the photos, drop me a line.  I’d be interested in knowing what kind of camera was being used at the time and where the photos were taken.  You can also submit photos to me on my website,

Ghost Hunters are Wackos

I was reading some blog entries for a local newspaper in Shreeveport about the upcoming paranormal convention this year, Le Festival D’Esprits. One entry stated, “The Wackos are coming. The Wackos are coming.” I’m not really thin-skinned about this. In fact, I find it kind of humorous.

People who try new things are always ahead of their time. They are called crazy, lunatics or a few bricks short of a load. Whether or not paranormal creatures and ghosts really exist is still speculative, but just think of the good laugh everyone will have if their existence is ever proven to be absolutely true. People would finally have to concede that the crazy neighborhood ghost hunting group was right all along- and they had fun doing it.

Personally, I belong to several paranormal groups. We don’t just spend our time ghost hunting. We love talking about paranormal books on the market, television shows, debating the existence of the paranormal, demonology and much more. We have fun simply as friends enjoying each other’s company. (Notice, I keep saying “fun”).

So, for those out there who simply think we’re all wackos, you just don’t get it. We come from all walks of life, are skeptics, as well as believers and most of us are quite simply looking to have a little fun in our humdrum lives.

Quit being a stick in the mud and join us! We won’t bite unless you want us to 🙂

Ghosts of Edinburgh’s Vaults

As always, I was surfing the net for news of the  strange and came across this odd little story (along with real ghost pictures!).  Apparently, a tourist was taking photos in those famous Niddry Street vaults in Edinburgh.  Of course everyone who has a sense of adventure goes on these ghost tours, but these particular vaults have been getting a lot of attention lately, especially in light of the fact they were featured on Most Haunted.  One tourist snapped quite a few photos and there appears to be a few skeletons appearing in those photos, on the wall, and one that looks like it is sitting in a crumpled position on the floor.  While I leave what is in these photos up to the viewers imagination, it does make for some interesting conversation.

If you are like other people who viewed them, they believe it is just stains on the wall (or a bit of undigested meat- there is more gravy than grave… about them… Charles Dickens )

Mr. Claud gives advice on things that you can do to have a successful ghost hunting experience, as well as things you should NEVER do (hint: provoking ghosts doesn’t always get you the desired results!).
