Astral Projection

Astral Rest & Recovery Areas

Astral Projection and Out of Body ExperiencesRobert Bruce has researched astral projection and out-of-body experiences for over 25 years. Here he documents the rest and recovery areas he has encountered in the astral dimension.

I have visited astral rest and recovery places many times. The hospital-like scenario and atmosphere is always similar, but each room I visit is quite different. These rooms seem to reflect the life conditions surrounding patients at the time of their passing, i.e., as in the case of my friend Peter (See "Peter's Tale").

I do not really think there is an actual hospital floating around somewhere in the astral, per se, staffed by beings intent upon nursing sick and tired spirits back to good health; although this is a beautiful thought. I believe this scenario is created by my own mind as it interprets the energies broadcast from these areas in the only way it can.

This perception interpretation is done according to my mind's own learned mental associations, as well as by those set in me by the collective consciousness of mankind. As this is a healing, resting and recovery area for the recently departed, my mind interprets this as a hospital type scenario staffed by caring doctors and nurses.

The doctors and nurses that staff and run these astral hospitals do not appear to be real spirit beings, although I could be wrong here. So far I have not been able to strike up anything resembling a meaningful conversation with any of them. They seem to be very two dimensional in nature, re why I suspect they may not be exactly who they appear to be.

On the other hand, many of the people/spirits I have met there seem to be quite real. All are visiting or waiting for a patient in the hospital, just as Peter's mother and father were waiting for him. Many spirit visitors will respond and converse in a reasonably normal fashion. Spirits I have spoken with in this situation do not seem to be aware of the length of time that has elapsed since they passed over, or of many details concerning their afterlife since that time. Memories of their earthly life also seem vague, much like how a half-forgotten dream is remembered by a living person.

Many spirits only seem to be aware of their present reality, that of being in only the hospital scenario for an indeterminate length of time. Some spirits, however, do have vague memories of their earthly life, and of coming from other dimensional areas; but have so far given me only very sketchy details. Often they will speak of a warm, brightly-lit, interesting place where they have many friends and loved ones, but with little more detail than this. The most common response I get from asking spirits what its like where they come from is: "Its really lovely there and everyone is so nice. I don't understand this. I'm very sorry. I know it well and can picture it in my head, but I just can't describe it to you."

The surreal and dreamlike quality of memory exhibited by I have encountered in these astral hospital areas may be caused by their being too far away from their natural, base-level of consciousness at the time. Keep in mind here that the natural or base level of any spirit is, logically, in one of the spirit worlds, and no longer in the physical dimension. And astral R & R hospital-like areas may be somewhere in between. It seems that any shift away from the natural base level of consciousness, either for a spirit being or a human being, causes them to have a surreal experience and memory translation problems. This type of translation problem also accounts, I believe, for the many difficulties and vagaries common to spirit communications and channeling in general.

Astral Dynamics
by Robert Bruce

"Most guides to astral projection give a few techniques and leave the reader feeling helpless when those techniques don't work. Robert Bruce, on the other hand, gives you not only the easiest and most effective projection techniques, but also energy, chakra, relaxation, and trance exercises that will, with time and practice, strengthen your ability to astral project." -- A reader from the United States
