Many people believe that psychic powers, Astral projection, Telekinesis and other abilities are enjoyed only be a "privileged"
few who happen to have been born with these abilities, or have acquired them in some other mysterious way.
The truth is, as with The Law of Attraction, absolutely everyone has the potential to make full use of these abilities with the right training.
It is true that some people are born with a particular aptitude towards one or more of these abilities, or, due to an accident or other profound experience spontaneously develop them, but everyone, without exception has the same potential lying just below the surface, just waiting to be realised.
Very often, as is evident from the many messages I receive on these subjects, people have heard that they can develop such abilities as Astral projection, Clairvoyance and Telekinesis, but are afraid to do so for fear of contravening their religion or belief system, or what others might say.
Many others believe that these abilities are simply "too good to be true". The fact is it is true, and this is something you need know beyond all doubt from the outset.
Another myth that I hear frequently is that abilities such as "psychic powers" or Astral projection are only available to people who are more "Spiritually advanced". In fact nothing could be further from the truth - none of these natural abilities have anything whatsoever to do with Spiritual advancement, and anyone who believes they do are either deluding themselves or falling foul of their ego.
This being the case, upon what does success in these and all other abilities then depend?
The answer, as with all other abilities is the Subconscious Mind.
As we know, success with the Law of Attraction depends on a deep knowing, beyond all doubt, that what we wish for already exists, accompanied by the knowing it to be true and with the emotions and gratitude that go with it. The slightest doubt will compromise the process. Above all an extremely important factor is absolute faith in the process. As the person known as Jesus said of faith:
"And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you". -- Matthew 17:20.
And such is the importance of this truth that he emphasises it time and time again:
"Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done".
-- Matthew 21:21
And this is the absolute truth. Nothing is impossible for us providing we have absolute faith in the process, and in the fact that as aspects of God, we share the same infinite creative powers.
So while a person regards these abilities as something "special", or only available to those who were born or endowed with "special abilities", that will be their reality and experiencing these abilities will elude them.
So where does the Subconscious Mind come in to all of this?
As we know, the Subconscious Mind is infinitely powerful and will accept, and bring in to our experiential reality anything we impress upon it, providing we have absolute faith in the process and know, beyond any possible doubt that it is true. This applies equally to developing any natural ability whether it be The Law of Attraction, psychic powers or Telekinesis.
Astral projection is an excellent example of this. Every night we leave our physical body during sleep, but because most people remain "unconscious" they are not aware of it except perhaps for remembering fragments of dreams with experiences such as "flying".
Many people have woken with a start after experiencing a "falling" feeling followed by what seems to be landing on the bed with a jolt. This experience is simply the Astral body re-joining, or re-synchronising with the physical body at the end of the sleep cycle.
However, if the Subconscious Mind is impressed with the thought that as soon as projection occurs we will become conscious of the fact, we can then take conscious control of the process and enjoy an Out of Body Experience or Astral Projection. This is a very powerful approach to learning Astral projection and Out of Body Experiences.
Similarly the Subconscious Mind can be programmed to allow us to remember our dreams as soon as we awaken in the morning. This is why it is an excellent idea to keep a "dream diary" by the bed, and make a habit of writing down everything you remember the moment you awake.
In fact, the Subconscious Mind can be impressed to experience absolutely any natural ability providing always we have the faith in the process, and dispel all doubts.
Just before sleep at night is an excellent time to impress our wishes upon the Subconscious Mind. It is at this time that our brainwaves slow considerably, and bring us closer to the Subconscious Mind. During normal waking hours, the faster speed of our brainwave activity places more of an obstacle between the conscious and Subconscious minds, but as our brainwaves slow down, this obstacle becomes progressively thinner until eventually it is not there at all.
We can accomplish this by using the imagination, visualisation or by repeating affirmations, always knowing, beyond any doubt, that our wishes are true now, and having absolute faith in the process.
Again, Our Ultimate Reality describes these processes in great detail.
