Yram - And the realm of the disembodied soul
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Practical Astral projection - Yram
In these heavy atmospheres the mockery of its inhabitants is the dominating element. The thought-waves of the Beings who live there are transmitted in a fairly material manner. In the higher worlds thought is clear, precise, vivid and immediate, without the least sound being heard.
In the lower worlds it seems as if we hear a timbre of voice unknown on earth. Whilst being sustained it gives the impression of being reedy. The timbre is neither high nor low; it is strong, yet has no personality. Its resonance is quite different from our own and yet very distinct. As to the sensations we experience in these worlds, these are almost material.
During one experience I could just make out, through the dark atmosphere of one of these planes, a deceased person standing on the step of a staircase. The imagery had brought into being the entrance of a cave where absolute darkness reigned. I walked down a few steps, being attracted by this entity who, straightaway, embraced me. Despite the fact that I was fully conscious of my condition, and already long practised in projection, the material feeling was so strong that, in spite of myself, I opened my eyes, certain that someone had disturbed me during my experiment. I recognized my mistake immediately.
It was too late and I had lost an excellent chance of making some very interesting discoveries. I could only remember the feeling of "cold" and "touch."
