Are you familiar with Astral Projection?

Welcome back to my Spiritual Awareness series here at Sally’s Smorgasbord. Today I’m speaking about the act of Astral Projection. So, what is Astral Projection?

The astral plane is the realm of dreams and spirits. When we astral plane, we are taken to a level beyond the physical where we live here on earth. Astral Projection is the vehicle method we use to visit an intermediate world of light between heaven and earth. Those who have astral traveled say when in the astral, they can feel they are in the present, along with all their senses. People often experience this during illness or if they’re involved in a near death experience, if not practiced intentionally.

Astral planing is a spiritual journey of the out of body experience, known as OBE. It is like floating out of our bodies and watching our body below, not unlike what many tell us they experience in near death situations, or while in an operating room as their soul spirit watches from above. The nature of astral traveling is we can explore another plane that does exist. It is said that approximately 10% of the population has had an OBE (out of body experience). So how would we know if we’ve astral planed?

Astral planing is basically, lucid dreaming. It is the separation of our spirit body from the physical body allowing us to experience the astral realm. And remember, our body is still connected by a silver cord, enabling us to return anytime. In actuality, it is the brain’s body schema (its perception) of our physical form being altered. Nothing is “leaving” our body, we can literally only feel our conscious self, leaving our body when we start to fall asleep, that is why we sometimes feel like we’re falling while dreaming as we are startled and our body shakes us awake. the first step to starting an astral projection.

The goal is to transcend our physical being, mentally. Our soul doesn’t disconnect completely from our body, it’s just something people say as a way to describe astral projection.

It’s important to do our research before attempting astral projection, making sure we have a clear and pure intention because astral projection is the law of attraction for the soul, meaning that whatever we reflect will come back to us during our soul journey.
While we sleep, our subconscious is in control. The difference between unconscious astral travel when asleep and dreaming, and practiced astral projection, is by using conscious astral projection, we’re able to control where our soul travels, also referred to as conscious sleeping.

How to Astral Travel

Lie down or sit in a chair in a quiet place and focus solely on your deep breathing. Do this until your mind draws blank and the only sound you hear is the sound of your deep breathing, and you’re just about to fall asleep, but still awake. Continue on with deep breaths for approximately 20 minutes when you will begin to feel a tingling or numbness within your body, and you eventually lose consciousness of your physical body. Don’t panic, stay focused, and do not move or allow in any thinking, just stay focused on the breath, this is part of the process. Once we’ve achieved this vibrational stage, we can begin to use our willpower in one of several ways.

Vibrational Stage

Our vibrations have now been shifted to an alternate frequency, which enable us to project. We must next visualize ourselves moving – without moving, as we need to begin lifting ourselves out of our physical bodies.

We must now focus our imaginations and intentions with eyes closed and using visualization. There are various methods we can use for visualization, and as time progresses with practice, we eventually discover what works best for our focus. But one suggested method is that we close our eyes and imagine there is a rope hanging above us. Then we must reach up (with our astral bodies) and grab on to the rope, without moving any body parts.

This event takes a lot of practice, and admittedly, I still have not mastered it myself, as I have a very active imagination and have a difficult time doing deep concentration, but I’m working on it. It’s natural for us to be pulled right back into our bodies the first few times until we get a natural handle on astral traveling. Once we master this, we will be free to journey to wherever we wish. When we’re ready to return to our bodies, all we have to do is ‘think’ it.

What will you experience in Astral Traveling?

  • We may feel as though our body is paralyzed, similar to when we sleep.
  • Some say they feel their heart rate escalate as astral traveling exerts a lot of energy.
  • Some will feel a tingling through their bodies, where others claim to feel an electricity-like vibration through them. This happens when energy points reach a synchronized resonation.
  • Others claim they begin to hear a loud buzzing noise, or a hum. Some say it’s a light buzzing sound, while others claim they feel as though they were near proximity to a jet plane.
  • Some explain they feel numbness, while others claim they feel a vibrational tingle throughout their bodies, feeling anywhere from a gentle brushing against them to a dire itchiness.
  • Some claim they feel an overwhelming blanketed feeling all around them, while others say they feel an immense pressure around their heads that doesn’t last long. Experts claim this is due to increased activity in the crown center from separation of body and spirit.
  • Another common sensation is a heated sensation through the center of the body, raising upward to the chest area. This is explained because of the amount of energy exerted to astral plane.
  • Some claim they feel either a sinking or floating sensation as they begin to separate mind and body, while others describe the feeling as one of being on a roller coaster. These occurrences are attributed to the separation of the astral body as the physical body leaves behind all the physical feelings associated with our physical form.

If we are feeling any or all these sensations, we are on the right path to astral projection.

Are there dangers in Astral Traveling?

It’s important to learn the caveats of Astral traveling. This journey is not a dangerous one, but it is advised that we prepare properly before beginning a journey. A common fear is that someone may die while trying this. This is not true.

Others question about whether or not we can become possessed by some demon entity. Keep in mind, we can only let in evil spirits if we invite them in, or if we are vibrating at a low frequency. We must be firm with any entities we may encounter while traveling. We have only to remember to say no to them and at the same time envisioning our protection of white light around us as a shield. It’s also a good idea to begin the procedure by asking the higher powers to protect us on our journey.

Remember, we can’t get be separated from ourselves or get trapped while in another realm or when returning back to our physical bodies because of our free will. It can sometimes feel as though we’re trapped, but we never are. We need only to focus our energies on returning to our bodies. And our ‘silver cord’ will always bring us back.
Remember, our physical world is a lot more scarier than the astral realms!

So, what is the Silver Cord?

In short, it’s an ethereal thread that connects our souls to our physical bodies – a link, so to speak, connecting our physical selves to our higher selves, which prevents us from getting lost in an astral realm. Some claim they can see the cord while astral traveling, and some don’t. Those who do have described it as a strand of silver tinsel, while others say it’s like a string connected to a ball of energy. It’s almost like an imaginary harness.

However, most people say they never see the string while traveling and say it’s like a tethering energy. Regardless of whether we can see the cord or not, just know it is always there. The cord is said to only be broken once we physically die.

It is said that if we were to have an NDE (near death experience), for example, if one is having a heart attack, the soul reaches up for the silver cord and hangs on until such time the patient is revived and comes back into themselves as they are revived. If they die, the cord is severed. This is why many people claim they have looked down on themselves onto their physical bodies and have seen all that has gone on before they were revived, they were still connected by the cord.

The silver cord has been referred to by many religions, cults, and history books. Here is a direct quote from the bible:

“Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.”

One of the reviews for P. S. I Forgive You

Martha Perez5.0 out of 5 stars Splendid Healing Read!!! Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 10, 2022

Many of us came from a flawed family. Unfortunately, we can’t choose our parents, and when a child is abused, they will carry the pain throughout their lives. It’s an emotional roller coaster; the author speaks from her heart and soul. This story is heartfelt. You will have tears flow down your cheeks. It’s not easy to forgive, but I am glad she has written this book.

A mother’s love should be unconditional, but when they have gambling and other problems, they exercise control over their children by being selfish and not loving. It’s a recipe for disaster. Why her mother wasn’t happy reflects on her daughter’s hurt she carries throughout her life and the neglect and abuse of the family.

I understand why writing her journey was so important. It’s like letting go of a butterfly jarred to be free to fly away from the Suffocation from her past.

I don’t think we can ever understand why some parents do what they do. We must heal from the bad and be grateful for the good. I could relate with D.G. Kaye. My parents were alcoholics and gave us away. It’s important to forgive, but you never forget. I highly recommend this fantastic book.

Finding out your mummy’s age

An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert and came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of a prestigious museum.

“I’ve just found a 3,000 year old mummy,” said the archaeologist. “It’s a man who died of heart failure.”

“Bring it in,” said the curator. “We’ll check it out.”

A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist. “You were exactly right about the mummy’s age and cause of death,” he said. “How in the world did you know?”

“Easy,” the archaeologist replied. “He was holding a piece of papyrus that said ‘10,000 shekels on Goliath.’”

Placing more bets

One day while he was at the track betting on the ponies and nearly losing his shirt, Mitch noticed a priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race.

Lo and behold, that horse — a very long shot — won the race.

Before the following race, the Priest blessed yet another horse. Mitch made a beeline for the window, and placed a small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse the priest had blessed won the race.

Mitch collected his winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the priest would bless for the 6th race. The priest showed, blessed a horse, Mitch bet a large amount of money on it, and it won!

True to his pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before the last race and blessed the forehead, eyes, ears, and hooves of one of the horses.

Mitch bet every cent he had, including his life savings and the deed to his house. Mitch then watched the horse come in dead last. He was dumbfounded.

He made his way to the track, and when he found the priest, he demanded, “What happened, Father? All day long you blessed horses and they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now, thanks to you, I’ve lost all my savings!”

The priest nodded wisely and said, “That’s the problem with Protestants — you can’t tell the difference between a simple blessing and the Last Rites

Decoding Sequenced Angel Messages in Numbers

Welcome back to Part 4 in my Angel Messages series. In today’s post, I’m bringing awareness to repetitive numbers we may come across and their meanings.

Are you noticing patterns of sequence numbers around you? When you look at the clock are you regularly seeing sequence numbers such as 1:11, 11:11, 2:22, etc.? Are you seeing these sequences around you in public places, at home, on license plates, ads, or anywhere else that may be trying to get your attention? These are divine sequence numbers where the angels are sending you messages by trying to get your attention. And all these numbers have numerological and vibrational meanings. These numbers that continue to show up around us are messages, letting us know something divine or magical is in the works, wanting us to pay attention and to take note of these numbers. Different numbers indicate different meanings.

Angels don’t barge into our lives to tell us things, they have their own way of letting us know things through messages using methods like numbers, nature, and divine messaging. Angels are bound by the laws of God and exist in a higher vibrational frequency than humans. They don’t invade our space unless we request their help or presence. It’s up to us to become aware of their messages and learn how to interpret them. But they can send us hints to beware through messaging, and by using number sequences it’s one of the popular methods they use to gain our attention – something like a nudge from an unforeseen force to pay attention. So, the angels communicate with us through our minds, often these repetitive numbers will occur frequent enough to call our attention to them. They can be warnings as well as magical numbers of the divine.

For example:

  • You may have noticed your last glance at the clock when heading to bed may have shown 11:11.
  • You may have woken up for a bathroom break and looked at the clock to find it showing 1:11, 2:22, etc.
  • The next day you might have purchased something with a receipt showing $11.11.

You get my drift?

This sequence may show up for a day or a few until it grabs our attention, making us curious enough to look up the meaning. Often these repetitive signs are also from our spirit guides or lost loved ones signaling an answer to confirm a nagging thought we have niggling at our minds to confirm our feeling. Angel numbers that repeat to us are thought to be sent through angelic vibrations. Also, pay attention to numbers that include your birthdate number.

An unhappy discovery for me with my birthday number ‘7’. All my life I always thought 7 was my lucky number until it wasn’t:

My father died on January 7th, one uncle, one aunt, one grandfather died on my birthday, June 7th. My beloved husband died on April 7th – his time of death was noted as 12:04 pm – add up those numbers.

Needless to say, I no longer associate that number as a happy one.

If you dig deep enough, you will find a repetitive pattern in your life.

DECODING THE NUMBERS

Let’s take 1:11 or 11:11 for example, it’s usually a wake-up call reminding us to take notice of what’s happening right now in our life – an indicator we are on the right path. The angel number 11:11 is usually a warning to take heed of a situation that is current in our life, and a coming of what we are manifesting on. So, it’s a good time to remember to keep positive thoughts in our minds and discard the negative.

One of the reviews for Conflicted Hearts

D.L. Finn 5.0 out of 5 stars I found this an inspiring journey  Reviewed in the United States on January 25, 2021

“Conflicted Hearts” is a wonderful insight of a girl growing up with an unavailable mother and father lost in that world. I could easily relate to the role of caretaker being thrust on a young girl and the guilt she carried. The blame her paternal grandparents had toward her because her father had to marry her mother was heavy, as was her parents’ on and off living arrangements and mother’s self-absorption toward her children. The guilt followed Ms. Kaye into adulthood, as she always tried to do the right thing. I appreciated how mistakes made had given her the lessons needed.

One situation that made me cringe was during a trip to Greece and a broken foot. But people came into her life just when they were needed. I found that very heartening. It was hard to read about the abusive relationship she ended up in, and I was relieved when they parted ways. I loved watching the author make her way to her happily ever after. I found this an inspiring journey of how Ms. Kaye navigated her home life and then left it behind to find herself and love. I highly recommend this memoir.

I hope you have had a great week. I know that some of you in Florida and adjacent states have been in the path of the latest hurricane and that caused extensive damage along the coast. Hopefully you have not suffered too much damage and that there is some respite from the weather fronts. We have had extremely high winds and torrential rain this week but we are lucky to only get the tail ends of the big storms across the Atlantic here on the East Coast, whilst those in the West of Ireland get the brunt of them.

The annual remembrance services have been held this week in the UK on November 11th and today with Rembembrance Sunday. Around the world veterans and those who did not return are remembered at different times of the year. My post this year is a tribute to an extraordinary marine who I was honoured to interview a few years ago. His story and those of the many thousands of wounded servicemen and women is one that needs to be told and thankfully there are some amazing charities who support them as they face the challenges of returning home with life changing injuries of the body and mind.

Smorgasbord Weekly Round Up – October 31st – November 6th 2022 – Hits 1940s, Tony Bennett, Spiritual Awareness, Poetry, Podcast, Book Reviews, Health and Humour


Welcome to the round up of posts from the week that you might have missed on Smorgasbord.

I hope you have had a good week so far although I do find it hard to believe we are in November already. I don’t know where this year has gone but it seems to have flown by. Still I guess it is true, time flies when you are having fun!

We have had three heavy storms come across us in the last week and on one day 90 mph gusts. No major damage but we did lose our metal birdseed tree which was a favourite with the garden visitors as it snapped in two as it feel on to the patio. Thankfully the bird feed pyramid that David built on the stump of an old tree survived and at least our resident birds managed to get some food in the gaps in the weather. In a complete contrast there will be a couple of days in this next week with warm temperatures and sunshine.

My next book is finished and is now going to be polished and my tapestry is completed and will go to be stretched and framed. I have been enjoy my two hours every afternoon getting back into the needlework groove so I have ordered a new piece which should arrive this week. It is a big canvas and will keep me busy for a few months.

Now for some fun from Sally….from the archives

Husband Mart

A store that introduces women to potential husbands has just opened, so a fastidious single woman paid it a visit. She discovered that the store has 6 floors, and the further up the men are placed, the more positive attributes they have.

But there’s a catch: as you enter any floor, you can choose a man from that floor, but if you go upstairs, you cannot go back down except to exit the building (and you can’t go back in, either).

At the main entrance, there’s a sign that reads: “Ground floor – These men have jobs.” The woman read the sign and said to herself, “Well, that’s better than my last boyfriend, but I wonder what’s upstairs!” So up she went.

The next sign reads: “Floor 1 – The men here have jobs and love kids. “Great,”, she thought, “but I wonder…” And up she went again.

The men on the second floor “… have jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking.” “Hmmm, better still,” she thought. “but there are still three more floors!”

The next sign reads: “Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, and help with the housework.”. “Wow!” exclaimed the woman, “very tempting, but there must be more further up!” Again she tackled the stairs.

“Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love kids, are extremely good looking, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.” “Oh, my! What else could a woman want? What is – what can be – on offer on the top floor?!”

So she passed yet again on picking a man there.

The top floor sign reads: “… You are visitor 3,456,789,012 to this floor. There are no men here. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please.

Thank you for shopping at Husband Mart and have a nice day.”

Cutting Emotional Cords with Archangels

Welcome back to my Spiritual Awareness series. While we’re still on the topic about angels, today I’d like to share with you a method of how to remove internal negative energies, or energetic form of attachment, with the help of two of our highest Archangels, Michael and Raphael. We are all connected to higher source through vibrational energy, and we refer to ‘connected’ by way of etheric or psychic energy cords. But what are these invisible cords? And how can we eliminate them to help release a negative energy connection we prefer not to keep within us?

We can learn to practice the art of cutting these invisible cords. And to help with the releasing of these cords that sometimes drain us and sap our energy unknowingly, we look to Archangels Michael and Raphael. Michael is the highest in the order of all seven Archangels. He is recognized in Christianity, Judaism and in Islam. Raphael is regarded as the angel who possesses God’s healing powers.

The energy cords we’re most linked with are people in our close circles, and almost always, family. These same cords also connect us to profound events in our lives that remain in the back of our sub-conscience – some good, some bad. And it’s those unhealthy attachments we want to eliminate.

All the negativity we carry because of unhealthy cords that bind us should be cleared from within every once in awhile, just as we cleanse ourselves and our homes. If you find yourself continuously carrying bad feelings, harboring negative energies, reliving unpleasant events of unfavorable conditions, or taking in energies from someone close to you, allowing them to take up too much residence in your head leaving you feeling unsettled within, it’s probably time to begin cutting.

There are various methods we can use to cut the cords that weigh us down, but the first step is to relax, do some deep breathing, and meditate for a few minutes to bring on the calm. Then we are ready to call on Archangel Michael to assist us by closing our eyes and concentrating and asking Archangel Michael, to please remove the cords that bind me.

It’s also important to recognize where your energy is draining you to specify the cords you want severed. Again, you can ask Archangel Michael to help to open up your awareness and to help find the draining cords. Then follow the cord(s) in your mind’s eye beginning by visualizing the cord from the top of our heads, following through to the heart, and feel this cord, then visualize Michael’s power of white light surrounding you. Keep the visual of white light around you to stay grounded. Visualize the heavenly archangel using a laser beam of light or by Michael holding a handheld vacuum (this one works best for me) penetrating through your head right down to your feet then visualize the act of burning or cutting, or sucking out these cords and being drawn and released through the top of your head. When you feel the cords have been released, ask for Archangel Raphael (the healer) to seal the open wound from where the cord was removed by focusing on thoughts of joy and love in your heart. By severing these cords, it makes room for peace and clarity.

Our angels are always with us, but they will never impose themselves in our lives unless invited to. This is known as free will. We need only ask for their assistance and keep an open heart when summoning. It’s almost like when we pray. If we don’t consciously pray, our angels are still always around us. But when we encounter times when we need help and pray to the angels, they hear our thoughts and are invited in with our calling.

Below is an example of what you can say. Don’t get all caught up in wondering if you’ve used the right words – speak from the heart. You may speak verbally or silently in your thoughts. Spirit speaks through thought. You may use any variation of calling your angels you feel most comfortable with. Just remember to close off the wound after the cord cutting.

Example for calling on our angels:

Archangel Michael, please pull on the roots of the cords connecting me to (name or situation) by using your light and sword. Release the roots and cord to divine light.

Now envision a shower of divine light all around you and the person you’ve just cut the cord from to send off the negative energy. Then you can ask Raphael to seal the wound, which should leave you feeling more centered, balanced, and feeling lighter within.

Tips:

  • You can always call on your angels to ask for help.
  • Keep track of your feelings before and after cutting cords.
  • You can always hold or surround yourself with your favorite grounding stone while doing this.
  • Smudging yourself and/or your surroundings after a cord cutting session helps to remove the negativity after the cord removal.

You can learn more about the various types of cords that become attached to us:

I found this helpful video to give you an idea about how to perform the cord cutting with angelic diviner, Melanie Beckler

I hope you enjoyed learning how to help yourselves from being drained by negative energetic attachments. Are any of you here familiar with this process?

Debby Gies is a Canadian nonfiction/memoir author who writes under the pen name of D.G. Kaye. She was born, raised, and resides in Toronto, Canada. Kaye writes about her life experiences, matters of the heart and women’s issues.

D.G. writes to inspire others. Her writing encompasses stories taken from events she encountered in her own life, and she shares the lessons taken from them.

One of the reviews for Conflicted Hearts

D.L. Finn 5.0 out of 5 stars I found this an inspiring journey  Reviewed in the United States on January 25, 2021

“Conflicted Hearts” is a wonderful insight of a girl growing up with an unavailable mother and father lost in that world. I could easily relate to the role of caretaker being thrust on a young girl and the guilt she carried. The blame her paternal grandparents had toward her because her father had to marry her mother was heavy, as was her parents’ on and off living arrangements and mother’s self-absorption toward her children. The guilt followed Ms. Kaye into adulthood, as she always tried to do the right thing. I appreciated how mistakes made had given her the lessons needed.

One situation that made me cringe was during a trip to Greece and a broken foot. But people came into her life just when they were needed. I found that very heartening. It was hard to read about the abusive relationship she ended up in, and I was relieved when they parted ways. I loved watching the author make her way to her happily ever after. I found this an inspiring journey of how Ms. Kaye navigated her home life and then left it behind to find herself and love. I highly recommend this memoir.
