Reading the combat of the black magician article, made me think about my current relationship. It is sort of similar in alot of ways. I usually brush things as an overactive imagination or because of my over anxious mind but my situation is very similar except that Mr Z in my case is another female co-worker. Me, being Mr X and the guy I am dating is Ms Y. This article is giving me the chills cause how Ms Y is acting and reacting is exactly how my current man is. Anything to do with the other female, he seems to drop everything the moment she calls. Everytime she is mentioned..not even yet discussed, he gets agitated and starts yelling at me for no apparent reason. Honestly, reading this and thinking of my situation is making me sick in my stomach.

Unseen, this sounds more like "sleep paralysis". When one is asleep, his body is generally paralysed from the neck down to stop him re-enacting his dreams. Sometimes one can wake before this paralysis has worn off.

Some people would say that you have over 15 dreams a night! It is fairly rare to remember them (all/any) without specific training.

Sleep paralysis popped straight into my head while reading your first post as well.

This article was fascinating as I could not even look away until I was done reading.

I thank you very much for sharing your experiences Prophecy. I wish you'd share even more, if you'd wish, as they brighten my day, help me learn, and give me motivation.

Thanks again!

if you experience an actual attack, you'll definately know about it, there's no "i think".

I think that probably depends on what the attack consisted of, and your own level of sensitivity to these things Ath.

i mostly read so far apart from this article that its impossible to be controlled / possessed
in performing the whole astral projection thing...

Prophecy - how then should one prepare for an astral projection if its dangerous business ?

..thnx for the initial posts :)

I'm not so sure that Prophecy is saying that it is dangerous as much as "finish what you start". The woman had obviously began astral project but left a small portion open for the being to try and take control. I believe if she had simply continued instead of putting the book down in dissapointment that there would have been no problems, although I could be mistaken    :P 
It was very beneficial to read your post Prophecy but I do have to ask, Have you ever felt compelled to assualt the dark magic initiates that are consumed by greed of power? As a magician I am sure that you must feel compelled at somepoint since there are initiates that have such malice to simply begin attacking people. Have you ever tried to reach out to them? try to show them the errors of thier way?
Sorry I'm a curious being.  :biggrin:

I stay my hand when I must, and allow it to act when I must.  Even black magicians, no matter how much they would deny it if they were told such, have very specific roles to play in the Divine Plan.  When it is necessary that I intersect their paths, I do.  When it is not, I do not go out of my way.  It just so happens that the consequences of their actions are far more cruel than any punishment I could personally bestow.

As for trying to help them, yes, I attempt to do so whenever I have the chance.  Many hopeful aspirants, in a material and sensually sinful world, were never given the chance to consider a path that seeks something higher.  Keeping this in mind one finds a kind of innocent violence in them, for they do not understand what they are doing, or its consequences, having never been sufficiently enlightened.  When the opportunity arises to educate such a person, I always embrace it, and encourage others to do the same.
