    The 'silver cord'

    Post  Violet on Sat Mar 28, 2009 10:47 pm

    Many are frightened of astral travel as they fear they will not get back into their body, as I understand it we remain 'attached' by a silver cord, what are your thoughts?

    I don't know about you, but I replaced my silver cord with a titanium one...just to make sure :happy:

    In all seriousness, our spirit is attached to our body from birth till death...of one or the other. It is only at that time (or in special cases of step-ins) that it can be detached.

    We seem to forget that concious astral travel is just that ....concious travel. Or spirit spends time away from our bodies on a regular basis...we just are not aware of it.

    Hello

    I was searching for " Silver" to see if I posted on the properties of it or not and found this......

    The Silver Cord is that attachement to the physical body but many do not feel its real or are able to grasp it being real.

    Here is an exercise using an Astral Rope where one does not have to really think on it being a part of one's body, as many do struggle with that concept and thus fail to Astral.



    The Astral Rope

    What is the ROPE, well it is an imaginary tool that is used to aid in the Astral Projection process.

    This is a good projection method if one has good powers of concentration.

    What ye do is attach an imaginary rope to the ceiling. Make it a strong and thick climbing rope.

    To start to use the rope first make sure that ye are prepared by having done a mind clearing and relaxation exercise

    Once this done reach out with imaginary hands to the rope. Go hand over hand slowly up the rope. It is not uncommon that ye feel dizzy or a feeling of vertigo. This is simply the body loosening form the mind’s control. This will take a few time to clear and balance out. Too one might have to deal with the fear of falling.

    Keep climbing hand over hand going upwards. As ye climb ye will start to have a heavy feeling to the body note this and simply keep climbing. As ye go higher ye will start to feel vibrations in the body and might well start to feel parlayed. Do not give into this feeling keep climbing.

    Next ye will feel ye’s self coming free from the body and there might well be a “buzzing” around ye or in ye’s ears. Concentrate thought this seeing that the rope is there beside ye. Ye are now FREE from the body.

    The good thing with the rope method is that the ROPE is like a safety net for ye to come back to and climb down.

    Although it is referred to as silver it is actually bluey-grey in colour
    It is mentioned in the Bible in Ecclesiastes 12:6 - "Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken" referring to the moment of death when...."Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it".

    i always feel that feeling of being in a lift, excited nervous feeling when i astral travel, if i'm flying i feel i could fall, or a lot of times when i used to do it, i'd get to the ceiling or into the sky and i'd be like, "now what?". i'd feel a bit scared about where i might go, who'd be there....
    i know we all do it every night, but i feel the reason we get nervy is in learning how to consciously direct our visits. too i think it keeps us from going too far too fast.

    In fact it is elastic in that it can stretch to an infinite length but can quickly bring you back to your physical body if required which is why you sometimes wake with a start.

    Sparkly, what do you mean when you say we all astral travel? Do you mean dreaming is astral travelling?

    I didn't know that either,Z.
    So do we Astral travel without being aware of it?
    Is that where we go when we dream?

    I'm not knowledgeable about Astral Travelling but being asleep does not automatically imply we're away in the Astral level.

    I think you'll find that we may sometimes visit the so-called world of the spirit during times when we're asleep but not always and not all the time we're asleep.

    Am I right?

    Yes you can, Joan.
    Unless we leave our body we cannot sleep. Where you go when you dream depends on a number of factors. Some people stay close to their physical body other go further afield. It may be to other parts of this world or into other dimensions. Wherever you go you renain attached to the silver cord.

    Once I dreamed a long time ago that I was in the first home we had lived in,in Australia.
    Would you call that Astral travel,visiting somewhere that I had lived in before?
    Incidently the house was completely devoid of any kind of furnishing.
    Or visiting anyplace where we have lived ot visited in our life.

    Not necessarily, Joan. Not all dreams are astral travelling - some are simply subconscious aspects of the mind.

    ifound these and other sites saying that we all do it every night. yes, you can do it by day dreaming also.
    viking have you ever woken with a jolt because you slipped or tripped in your dream? that jolt is when you go back in your body too quick. joanie, your experience does sound like astral travel to me. you'd find it different to dreams. especially if you're flying, you actually feel the moement unlike dreams where you're in one place then another with no continuity...no idea how.

    Sparkly, I am speaking from experience, not quoting from other websites!
    BTW Lobsong Rampa was exposed as a fake many years ago.
    As I explained earlier you can wake with a jolt when the silver cord pulls you back very quickly.

    Certainly mac.
    In sleep state the spirit body is attached to the physical body and, for most people, hovers about six to eighteen inches above the physical body. Through the silver cord the body's energy is recharged and revitalised. If you drift in and out of sleep i.e restless you will wake in the morning completely washed out and tired.
    A knowledge of spiritual realities will enable you to move away from the physical body and visit loved ones in the spirit realms often bringing back memories of that visit.
