Hi Guys! First off, I would like to thank Lark, BreeFiaDaran, and everyone else who has helped me contact my Spirit Guide(s). You guys have been a great help. :)
As the title says, I'm wondering what what dangers there are if I ever have a successful AP. Demons, evil spirits, or enemy spell casters who would wish to harm me. And how do I handle them?
I have heard from some that a spirit guide is with you during an AP, but others who say otherwise.
Please no links. For some reason, links don't work on my computer :P
Baisicly nothing, the only danger im aware of is that if something messes you up mentally than you take it back with you to your body, aside from that nothing, while there are some people that state that you can get hurt, but they probably havent ever AP'd themselves
It depends on what you consider astral projection to be honest. Many people who pathwalk and journey have stated that you can get hurt and it can effect your physical body. This is generally considered etheral projection by people who deal with the "projection" terms.
I really don't deal in all the terms myself personally, so I'd have to say yes, while outside of your body you can get hurt. It's not necessarily the things you mentioned, it could be the being you run into while there, the one you're working with, someone you incidentally insult. You honestly have more to worry from regular folks than you do from demons, evil spirits, or enemy spell casters, unless of course you go around looking for those types of people or places where they frequent.
I've yet to run into any problems, but I am polite to everyone I meet.
I have definitely heard of people being capable of being hurt on the astral plane but by more mundane things than demons or spiritual entities. An example is I've been told one way to separate lucid dreaming and astral projection is to determine if you felt pain on waking that occurred in what you assumed was a dream as that would indicate you were actually astral projecting in your sleep. A protection spell prior to astral projecting might help, but as astral projection is a mental act and includes another plane of consciousness I have actually never heard of using magick in conjunction with the astral plane. I have of course heard the warnings of your physical body being in danger from earthly attack while your consciousness is away as you cannot defend yourself. From what I gather you can learn to manifest things on the astral plane such as a weapon for defense, but my understanding is it takes practice learning how to manipulate the energies on the astral plane to do so.
