A Complete Guide
Part 1 What is the Astral Realm
There are certain aspects of the astral dimension and the
projection process that are very complicated. Much of it
is misunderstood and it can all be very confusing at
times. This series of articles attempts to shed a little light
on the subject, and hopefully, explain what its all about.

of this Treatise to develop greater understanding and
new, simpler and more effective techniques for

here are constantly under development and are subject to
modification and change as new discoveries and insights
come to light.

of sympathetic attraction, or like attracts like, causes this
ocean of mind stuff to strata and settle into layers or
pools. These pools of thought are more commonly called
astral planes, astral worlds, astral sub planes or astral
The astral dimension is composed of astral matter and is
aptly described as mind stuff. It is extremely sensitive to
thought and can be moulded into any shape or form.
These creations can be so perfect as to be
indistinguishable from reality.
The best way to explain this, mind stuff, is to draw a
comparison between astral matter and unexposed, high
speed photographic film. When this film is exposed to
light, focused by the cameras lens, a perfect image of
reality is instantly burnt into the film by the chemical
reaction of the film to light. When astral matter is
exposed to thought, focused by the lens of the mind, a
