Astral travel, how to control it

Recently I came across a new client who complained of being tired all the time, getting typical pressure type of headaches feeling dizzy, getting flashes in her eyes and all this despite having a comfortable life style and sleeping properly. And was spiritual with a regular puja schedule etc. The doctors did not find anything wrong with her physical body.

I looked up her horoscope and it was so interesting to see that she had her ketu conjuct with venus which was her ascendant lord. The saturn was in the 12th house aspecting the moon in the 6th.

But my client was travelling astrally almost every night and that explained her physical symptoms. Our body is made up of layers, the physical body is visible to the eyes the other bodies are more eletro-magnetic in nature can just be felt. The way I visualised it was her other bodies were literally flying away from her physical body like kites. It was the first time I had seen someone in such a state. Of course this was partly reflected from her horoscope.

Ascendant venus with ketu – disassociated feeling of “self”, apathy and non interest in the physical sense of the self as in the physical body

Saturn in the 12th house – the main karmic planet in the 12th house of ‘unknowing’, 12th house represents dreams, sleep, unknown depths of the mind etc. And saturn representing her karmic burden and the karmic work that she had to perform in this life. So her main karmic workload was in the realm of dreams and subconscious state.

Saturn aspecting moon in the 6th house – the emotions and expression of emotions was highly restricted and her understanding of the subconscious realm during her awake state was practically nil.

There are 4 types of existance, jagrut (awake), swapna  (dreaming), shushupti (deep sleep) and turiya (transcendence). And in all these states we have to fulfill our karma.

So my client was in her swapna state leaving her body, moving about in her astral form and completing a sizeable amount of her karmic load in her sleep. And her physical body was suffering badly as a result and she was completely unaware of her astral travel. It was understandably traumatic for her as she was using up all of her energies in the dream state and not knowing what it was being used for.

There was a relatively easy way to settle her other bodies properly inside her physical body. The powerful Gayatri mantra in its complete form.

भूः भुवः स्वः  महः जनः तपः सत्यम्
तत्सवितुर्वरेण्यं भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि
धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात्
आपो ज्योती रसोऽमृतं ब्रह्म भूर्भुवः स्वरोम् |

She chanted this full Gayatri mantra 108 times in one set, thus was able to fix her other bodies back into her physical body and her dizziness, flashing lights nausea symptoms faded. (Sit on your asan, in any yogasan posture. Keep your palms in the bhairav mudra on your lap. The recite this long form of gayatri, 3, 27 or 108 times. Keep your focus on your ajnya chakra between your eyebrows. Each of the vyhrutis, eg. om bhu with the muladhar, om bhuvah with the swadhisthana, om swaha with the manipur, om maha with the anahata, om janah with the vishuddhi, on tapah with the ajnya till the om satyam for the crown chakra help ‘fix’ the chakras and all your energy bodies to these chakras.)

For recovering her energies I advised her to do reiki healing on herself everyday which worked wonderfully. And for reducing and stopping such daily astral travel again reiki worked with drawing cho ku re symbol over her feet and ankles locking her body during sleep. And as she had a regular dhyan puja system in place already she was strong enough to bring about her own cure

It was wonderful working with this client as she realised her own strengths and whatever was done to treat her problems was done by her own self.

I believe our higher self, hidden within us, knows what is going wrong with us and if allowed to can perform miracles.

    just stumbled upon your website couple of days ago; i am trying to read all your posts not in sequence; it is superb, offering great insights; after bplama i would reckon this as most authentic material i have come across; (please delete the following portion if inappropriate)

      Hi there
      there is an additional beej mantra which is used sometimes,
      the additional beej mantra directs the pure energy of Om specifically for gain of pure Jnyan

      both are correct, different purpose thus difference in beej mantra

    Hi there. My name is Preethi and have been a quiet follower for some time. I’m married with two beautiful children. How do we know if it is just a dream or astral travel? I’ve been having a lot of dreams since a small girl but as I grew up, the dreams are turning into somewhat of premonitions.
    I do get up tired. I’ve started practicing yoga to help. But my dreams have helped me in reality. It gave me clues to what’s going to happen. How do I know if it is astral travel or not? I still dream , every single night & remember them.

    Hope to hear your comments.
    Thank you

      Hi there

      almost everyone travels astrally but it is fr a very very brief time period and maybe once in 10days or so,
      if you are doing this every day or extensively then it is a problem and has to be addressed,
      waking up tired everyday is a sign tht your astral activities are draining your pran. It feels like the body is a heavy weight, a log, unable to move. you might see blue flashes or silvery sprkles in your vision, if this is happening then the situation is serious
      you have to do some activities to increase the pran levels in your body, (have written a lot on this)
      also intend tht your astral body remains in and does not go out ..
