"Astral Voyages" by Bruce Goldberg - $15

Fascinating and also convenient for me

Anybody who read Raymond Moody's book "Life After Life" will probably be interested in this too. The emphasis of this book pertains very much to having a personal experience in this life, and being able to use the experience on a continuous basis to be sure about what happens after death. Of course, being sure about the afterlife can effect how we choose to live this life.

The book includes two tips which I would not mind using on a continuous basis to attempt leaving the body. Both of these tips involve a specific time the author includes, and literally require little to no effort! :D So even if you feel lazy, both of these tips can be effective for you. Neither one of these are the one of them mentioned in his "...Fifth Dimension: Parallel Universes..." book which I also noted could help even for someone who felt lazy. They most certainly can be used in combination with that tip. Thanks to Bruce Goldberg, there are a total of three different tips I realistically see myself using on a continuous basis in attempts to have OBEs. These tips suit my lifestyle along with my current attitude toward the topic. The first sentence on the third to last paragraph on page 12 contains a point extremely relevant point to these three tips.

The average person will probably get excited about certain scientific measures taken for validating leaving the body! This section will probably leave you curious enough to do research on the measures.

If you read enough of the book and do research about at least one of the stories he mentioned in it (like page 124, the second to last paragraph), you will very likely be persuaded that the paranormal or supernatural exists, even if you're not sure of its details.

Although leaving the body is not something I claim to officially be able to do regularly now (at least while awake), it's not something I rule out as "unrealistic", and this attitude is partly because of this book.

One of the tips for starters is very easy to use. Also, if you'd like something likely unpredictable, check out page 127. It also includes what I find to be a touching statement at the beginning of the first paragraph right after the list.

There's also at least one possible historical reference to OBEs that you might want to look into more on page 164. Pages 58 and 62 of this book includes ideas regarding two topics of the supernatural that most people obviously heard about, and can maintain the attention of the reader about them. The top of page 218 contains another historical reference that maintains my attention.

Page 228 gives a reader a good idea of when OBEs can occur. This is part of my personal motivation to try it.

There's a specific kind of building you can visualize which can increase your likelihood of projecting on page 63, but both pages 62 and 63 in their whole can help give you a better understanding of the author's view of the astral plane. Part of page 179 can also help you with this sort of idea. You can refer to page 214 for another mention regarding visualization.

Pages 97 and 98 are among my favorite pages, and if you look at and think about them, you'll likely see why. You can try to add the quantity of ways to increase the likelihood of experiencing OBEs.

There's different hints which can obviously suit different people, but can cause the same result. This is why I find it worthwhile for various different people to at least scan through this book.

You may pay even greater attention to the moon phases and weather conditions after reading this. Not only that, but you could pay more attention to your eating habits.

Pages 97 and 98 include about how you might want to attempt having OBEs a certain kind of way. I'd personally prefer trying this various times but it might not necessarily be regularly for me. It depends on the situation.

Page 143 contains the most fascinating claim about dreams that I ever saw. Page 144 also reinforces the claim. These are among my absolute favorite parts of the book. You might find page 95 very helpful regarding the view the author has about this topic.

The first sentence of this book is enough to likely maintain at least the attention of the average reader. Eventually, I found myself wondering what the official definition of "soul travel" is, and used the glossary in back of the book. If you're confused about something, that glossary can help you understand. Also, I have to include that page 227 of this book is one of my favorite, if not being my absolute favorite page of the entire book for unpredictability, and the third paragraph on page 12 contains a very similar idea. You will probably be very motivated to attempt OBEs if you look at the beginning of one of the paragraphs on page 229.

Pages 136 and 137 have the author's thoughts about what happens when one passes away.

The last sentence on the fourth to last paragraph as well as the first sentence on the third to last paragraph on page 59 are also noteworthy with regards to trying to increase your motivation to achieve OBEs.

There are these general ideas certain people might get when they think of New Age involving things like tarot cards, crystal balls and fortune cookies. However, the author includes a general "Goodwill toward Man" type of attitude as something to possibly help the reader accomplish the topic of this book, and it's on page 127. This could really be a "nudge" for someone to do kind things for others. One might even begin to have a Christian-like sense of this due to this page.

In my opinion, pages 163-165 would be fascinating for those into Egyptology, and 131 very interesting for them.

Those into Buddhism in general ought to check out page 61 and specifically Tibetan Buddhism page 130.

If you find yourself anxious about becoming involved with the topic of the book, the top of page 74 can help.

There were three questions I had about certain claims in the book, and I contacted the author about them. He was kind enough to answer all of them!

There's a certain form of hypnosis that I continuously found myself more willing to use on a regular basis, and page 132 contains a truly motivational reason to use it in my opinion.

Of all his books, there are three of his which I significantly favor, even more so than the others. This is in the top three of my favorite books by the author.

Think the book can't appeal to all audiences? Undoubtedly, Christians of all sects and Jews ought to focus on the biblical (or Torah) reading on page x and really wonder what on earth that could have meant. If it were to be interpreted otherwise then how the author obviously does, it would truly seem like a mystery! Pages 31, 45 and 131 are also considerable for them.

Also, Christians of every sect might appreciate pages 69, 121-122, and might want to check out 66, 19 and 222. At least one other sect of them would find Pages 33, 59, 131 (additionally to above) and 207 considerable.

Pages 66, 67 and 70 are possibly the most important parts of the book because they regard where the author believes the perfected soul eventually resides. That is supposedly the ultimate destination of our spiritual goal.

If you did some research about the health benefits of reading in general, you'd be amazed. It's also healthier to read paperback or hardcover books as opposed to using electronic devices. You might think it's more beneficial to generally read nonfiction as opposed to fiction, but consider the visual benefits of reading even if it's fiction. And consider how beneficial it could be to try to learn if something is fiction OR nonfiction! :D

I have an extra copy of the book other than the one I keep for myself available for purchase since it would probably be better appreciated elsewhere.
