“Astral projection (also called astral travel or excursion of the soul) is where a person’s soul becomes separate from the physical body and capable of traveling outside of it. The practice of astral travel is ancient and occurs in multiple cultures. Strong mediums and Yogi masters have claimed to have the ability to leave their body. This is a satanic counterpart of the out-of-body experiences caused by God, as He may have done with the Apostle Paul (2 Cor. 12:1-4). People in the New Age are deliberately trying to induce Astral Projection through occult means for supernatural thrills. But is it by the power of demons they are able to induce astral projection? Consequently, astral projection leaves the door wide open for demons to come inside a person’s body as demons desire a “house” to inhabit. People commonly report seeing grotesque entities, which are demons, while astral traveling. The Bible – God’s word – explicitly condemns all occult practice, or sorcery, in Galatians 5:19-20, saying that those who practice it will not inherit God’s kingdom. God’s commands are always for our good, and He commands us to stay far away from all occult practices.”
The following is one man’s interesting testimony involving astral projection.
I will share what I believe could have been an astral projection event in my life. Many years ago, I had a sleep paralysis experience, but this one was different from the others. This time, the demons were trying to “pull” me (or my soul) out of my body. What was happening was unnerving. I was compelled to resist with all my will against what they were trying to do. Thinking back, I believe they wanted me to astral project, so those demons can have easy access to enter my body. Thank God, they didn’t succeed in doing it!
German Christian Occult expert Kurt Koch (1913-1987) wrote some insightful information on Astral Projection:
“The news sheet of the Blue Cross, “Bla Korset,” has published a thrilling testimony in this connection. It concerns a Swede named Kjell Wallgren, whose search for the truth led him as far away as the Himalayas. There a Buddhist monk, who was a master of meditation, introduced him to the art. By means of the exercises he learned, the Swede developed such a degree of self-control that he was able to separate his soul from his body and send it out.
His meditation ended in spiritism. In his excursion of the soul, he travelled through the unseen world. There he met souls, who like him, had reached this state by means of meditation. The effort to find liberation by meditating had brought them into contact with the world of lost spirits. In his hopelessness, the Swede suddenly became aware of a power, which he later recognized as the power of Jesus. This power drew him back to his body again.
Frightened by his experience, the man stopped meditating and tried to return to Sweden. Since he had no money, he had great difficulties in reaching his homeland. Totally disillusioned with Buddhism, he was now ready to listen to the Christian message. He attended an evangelistic meeting, which was addressed by an African Christian, who was working in Sweden. From the preaching of this man, he learned the great message against meditation in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one cometh unto the Father but by me.”
There is only one way to the Father, only one way to heaven, only one way to salvation: Jesus Christ. The disappointed traveller of Asia received this truth in his own life, and everything changed” (Occult ABC, p.144-145).
“The Alauts combine spiritist excursion of the soul and materialization with death magic. They acquire their powers through various ceremonies and by signing themselves with their blood to the devil. I the night, they put themselves into a trance and split off part of their energy. They have two ways of seeking out the victims whom they wish to hurt or kill. Sometimes the split-off energy, in the form of a small spirit, rides upon an owl and so flies to the victim’s house. The other method is for the energy actually to transform itself into a night owl. This mysterious bird then sits on the victim’s house and puts a spell on the people who are to be attacked. Then a kind of spiritist operation takes place. A cut is made with a small knife in the victim’s abdomen, and a piece of his liver is then cut off. The hole is sometimes filled up with leaves. The Alaut then eats this liver for breakfast.
Before the days of the revival, these Alauts were greatly feared in Timor. There was no way of protecting oneself against them. The police did nothing, for fear of being victimized by the Alauts themselves. It was even known for pastors to become Alauts, in order to protect themselves and their families.
Reports of this magic are unacceptable to rationalists. On the other hand, these know-it-alls reject even the reports in the Scriptures. In Exodus 6-7, Moses, acting on the command and in the power of God, changed his rod into a snake. The Egyptian sorcerers imitated him, using the power of Satan.
Those who have seen the sorrow and genuine tears of repentance in sorcerers who come to confess their sins-and I have seen this- know that what such people say in confession before God is the truth.
I must not fail to pint out that born-again Christians cannot be hurt or killed by Alauts. I have observed this also with voodooists in Haiti and the Macbumba people in Brazil, and I have come to attach great significance to it. The dark powers of Satan are powerless in the face of the great power of Jesus Christ.” (Occult ABC, p. 46- 47)
If you need prayer or someone to talk to about this, then feel free to reach out to me.
If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.
If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):
“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
