Recently I learned about something called “Lucid Dreaming” which is basically your sub conscience is aware that you are dreaming and you are able to control what happens in the dream world. It takes time but it is learnable. It’s also scientifically proven. I thought it was interesting and wanted learn more about it, maybe even do it. While reading up on it I also read up on something called “Astral Projection” which in short assumes the existence of another body, separate from the physical body and capable of traveling non-physical planes, which also is supposedly “learnable”, although there is no real evidence to prove it’s real. While I had not read anything of the church being against lucid dreaming I did read some things about Astral projection it said “Astral Projection is a forbidden practice for Roman Catholics because the soul; containing all reason, thought, memories, emotion, attitudes, and beliefs; leaves the physical body during a wake state, and this can cause bizarre belief systems to develop, based on improperly interpreted sensations from the reality elevated from, and parallel to three dimensional reality.
The soul in an agnostic state; that is indifferent toward The Holy Trinity, or Triune God God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit; is left without protection, roaming the atmosphere, and perhaps some distance beyond this in a spiritual ghetto that surrounds the earth: The Third Heaven. The Third Heaven is ruled by spiritual hosts of wickedness in the high places, which will send demons to deceive those who will not keep to the domain of the world.
A human soul, when detached from the physical body, during a waking state, without the protection of The Roman Catholic God, Jesus Christ, is very vulnerable to molestation by demons.
Roman Catholics refer to escorted travel in the spiritual dimension, an anointing. Jesus Christ is The Anointed of God, Who, while in human form was constantly aware of All Truth, regardless of the shortcomings of the human sensory channels. He was, therefore, constantly in a state of Astral Projection, or anointing. The anointed of God will prophesy Truth directly from God, perform miraculous healings, order the atmosphere to obey them, stop rain from falling in a certain area, pass through solid objects, and/or become invisible when threatened.”
Is that just an opinion on Astral Projection or is it actually taught by the church? Also do you guys know anything about lucid dreaming and whether that’s forbidden? I really want to try it, but not unless it’s allowed by the church and not a sin or anything…
