From an email correspondence with a request to analyze this astral projection experience:

 

A couple of mornings ago, I was pulled into the astral side of a strip club that I used to frequent physically.  At first, I did not recognize the location as I walked thru the streets filled with lots of cars and arrive at some double glass doors. On the other side of the doors was a long dark narrow corridor with at least 15-20 stairs that went straight upwards.  At the top of the stairs was a brightly lit platform and to the left of it was the entrance to the room where the women were dancing.  Behind two long velvet ropes where two big bouncers that pulled back the ropes for me as I approached.  As soon as I passed the ropes, my clothes disappeared from my body and I was completely naked.  I sat down at table just to the left of the stage where the women were dancing.  As I scan the room, I recognized several women from the various strip clubs that I use to frequent.  Not sure how long I was sitting there but I felt compelled to get up and leave, however my clothes never reappeared.  So when I reached the street level, I ran frantically hoping no one would see me naked under the cover of darkness. I’m not sure why but I ran to a hospital and could not get in for whatever reason.  Then it dawned on me that I needed to return to the club before it closed to get my clothes. As I crept passed parked vehicles, I could hear my name being called in the distance.  I did not look initially because I didn’t want to be discovered. So I began running faster away from the calls and glanced back to see who was calling me.  I saw a group of my fraternity brothers laughing and cheering me on.  I continued running across the street but once I got a few feet from the curb. I began to show off by doing a backward somersault, landed on the sidewalk and continued running.  As I approached the club, it looked like people were leaving for closing time. So I sprinted up the stairs passing some other patrons as well as some of the women that worked there.  When I reached the table where I was sitting, I felt the anal lock in the physical body slam shut. The astral body was pulled back and it felt like I had to urinate.  The physical body shook for a few moments before I was able to scurry to the toilet.  I tried to evacuate the system but nothing came out then I realized my pants were wet with semen.

MiBeloved's Analysis:

Taking up yoga practice or any other spiritual process does not end all of the previous lifestyle abruptly. The astral body is not hampered by radical changes in lifestyle, regardless of if these are positive or negative. It is concerned with fulfillment of desires and continuation of habits. This means that if you become a saint overnight and you were a hoodlum the day before, the astral form will find ways particularly in the astral world to escape from your new lifestyle and return to the old ways of doing things.

 

Many people feel that once you are saved or once you convert to a religious or spiritual process, you are clean from then on. This is not true. As a yogi one should be prepared to return repeatedly to the old ways of doing things, especially in the astral world. The subtle body is promiscuous. This means that it will seek out old habits even if those are destructive to it. It does not care about any morality from the physical side. It escapes from the physical side and in the astral world, it will do whatever it was restrained from doing in the physical world.

 

Yes, I was saved. I went up to the preacher. He held his hand on my head. I felt the Holy Ghost. I will never drink alcohol or smoke marijuana again. I will never be caught in any club or pornographic setting again. They are watching me, the other church members.

 

But oops on the astral side none of this has any meaning. On that side, I am into to it even more than I was before I was saved.

 

So why is the astral body like this?

 

Reason is simple:

 

It is into fulfillments, any fulfillments regardless of whether it is beneficial or harmful. Once it is exposed to a means of pleasure, it will try to get that pleasure come what may. If it is restrained on the physical side, then it will escape those restrictions when it gets on the astral side, while the physical system sleeps.

MiBeloved's Analysis:

After one reforms oneself from a habit which is counterproductive to spiritual practice, the subtle body holds all the intentions to continue that counterproductive habit. This means that the determination to restrain the psyche will be broken by the impulsive actions of the subtle body.

 

Physical restraint is the beginning of the control of a vice (destructive pleasure habit). And that is all that is, just the beginning. To really get control one has to prevent the subtle body from its impulsive way of operating.

 

How to do that?

 

Good question!

 

The subtle body was anxious, not only to return to the strip club but to become a stripper itself. This means that even if consciously you did not have such a desire, if you check your subconscious mind you will find that you have a fully-developed desire to be a stripper. This is interesting how the conscious mind acts in one way and the subconscious mind acts in a completely contrary way, as if the two minds are two different persons with different propensities.

 

They call it bipolar!

MiBeloved's Analysis:

Subconscious mind wants to fulfill the desire which developed in it even without it being supervised by the conscious mind. In this experience guess who is in charge, the conscious or subconscious?

 

The clothes will never reappear so long as the subconscious has the stripper intentions.

MiBeloved's Analysis:

Conscious mind is embarrassed by the whole thing but it has no power in this experience. It is really a passive bystander here, made passive by a deactivation mechanism in the subtle body. The big boss is helpless to do anything in his own office (psyche).

 

======================================

 

Email correspondence:

As I crept passed parked vehicles, I could hear my name being called in the distance.  I did not look initially because I didn’t want to be discovered. So I began running faster away from the calls and glanced back to see who was calling me.  I saw a group of my fraternity brothers laughing and cheering me on.

 

MiBeloved's Analysis:

This means that the fraternity brothers were there or they were not actually there but for sure their vibration was there. Previous behaviors which were encouraged by these associations were supposed to be developed further but since you separated yourself from them in the name of religion, spiritual development or whatever, their energy wanted to be sure that you would come back to what it considered to be the ideal behavior.

 

Their energy was laughing because you have not associated with them in the proper way to their standards, and to booth you felt that you were being purified of all that and had left it aside.

 

The fact is, though, that if you contact a venereal disease, going to church the next day after won’t do anything to stop the effects of it. Praying, singing hymns, getting down on your knees etc won’t do anything to stop the course of the disease (barring a miracle of course).

 

The system in the subtle body retained the inclinations to the previous lifestyle and has every intention of completing that.

 

======================================

 

Email correspondence:

I continued running across the street but once I got a few feet from the curb. I began to show off by doing a backward somersault, landed on the sidewalk and continued running.

 

MiBeloved's Analysis:

It is always the method with peers to have some way to show off, to get their approval and applause. Nice!

 

======================================

 

Email correspondence:

MiBeloved's Analysis:

Notice that no one greeted you. The only real greeting you got was from your frat brothers. This is because they were the original impetus which took you to this type of lifestyle. If you had listened to your mother and gone to church on Sunday like a good little boy, even while you were in college, this would never have happened?

 

Hurray for Mom!

MiBeloved's Analysis:

Here your yoga practice saved you.

MiBeloved's Analysis:

The physical body was in communication with the separated astral form. Thus it was sexually stimulated. Because of the habit of yoga practice with bandhas, locks, the physical body made a last minute effort to reform itself from the old behavior.

 

Nice! A clear example of how having a physical body can help in the cultivation of spiritual disciplines. Physical body can be useful after all.

Email reply:

This is funny because when I use to hang out with these women, some of them mentioned that they thought I would be a good stripper.  I was always too terrified to consider it seriously.  So I understand what you mean because I now mentally reviewed the whole situation.

 

When I reviewed in my mind, as to when I first got introduced and hooked into this strip business, it was through my frat brothers.  Should I review that experience in meditation?  And if so, what purpose does it serve?

 

MiBeloved’s Response:

It is important to review this to see exactly how an influence is transmitted from one person to the next and how the impetus may stay with the infected persons for years after. It is like a vaccination. This applies to both positive and negative influences.

 

There is also the realization that influence will always be there. There is a saying which goes something like this:

 

No man is an island.

 

This means that for better or worse, influences will prevail. We have to stop thinking that we can be free of influences. Liberation means to understand that there will never be a time when we will be free of influences. We may then try to be preferential towards selected influences which help to exalt us, to make us the best of what we can be.

 

If you successfully trace an influence, then there is a chance that you can transcend it if it was not positive in your life and that you can increase the flow of it if it was in your interest.

 

You may also study how you are influenced or how you absorb influences, how they penetrate and operate after you are infected by them.
