Some things that you need to be aware

The Dreams Within

We have two types of minds which are the conscious (physical) and the subconscious mind that takes over the physical mind when it goes to sleep. So the one who is responsible for creating dreams into our minds is nothing but the subconscious mind.

It's capability is far beyond the reality where it can create any event, scenario or anything else that it wishes to occur. This is the process on how the subconscious mind communicates with the physical mind. It's the reason why you are able to experience weird and unrealistic dreams.

To explain further on how it works - the subconscious mind simply creates anything from objects, events to complicated scenarios and then project them into your astral dimensional thought. Your conscious mind will going to encounter those scenarios and probably, you'll be able to remember some of your experiences on your dreams as you wake up.

Lucid Dreaming and Astral Projection

Just to say a few details about AP, it is simply the experience when you separate from your physical body and you find your self into the a separate world or dimension. Everything around you aren't completely normal where you can alter every object from your current environment. There's no time boundary that you can travel into the past and future or to a far away places that you've never been.

Lucid dreaming is totally the same as AP that you can alter everything that surrounds you or even change the flow of your dream. The only difference between an AP is that you don't have to go through the trouble of separating from your physical body.

The Near Death Experience

A Near Death Experience can never be intentionally done and it can only happen when your body suffered from a severe trauma or on a fifty-fifty critical condition of survival.

The projection at this state is on real time, place and situation. According to most individual who has experience near death, everything they see are white brilliant light coming from a certain tunnel. Somebody is always at the end of the tunnel waiting for you but be aware that there might be some other else around that will going to take you into another path.
