As the topic says I want to know if there are working methods any occultists here can tell with minimal tools. I know how to into TGS thanks to E.As wonderful YouTube channel. I heard that the spirit might need a manifestation base. I have a few candles which I can cram a few incense sticks. Are there other manifestation tools?
I know the prequisites for the act now all I need is a working system. Please help as I am OBSESSED now.
The imagination is the gateway to the astral plane. That is why, when you travel the astral, anything you can imagine will manifest. If you want to take the form of a dragon, other denizens of the astral will see you as a dragon, and react. If you feel threatened and want to hurl lightning from your hands, you can do that too. If you are fearful, whatever you fear will manifest.
You do not need to leave the body to access the astral.
They are one and the same. It is only through focus and concentration that the “regular” imagination becomes the magical imagination.
To create an astral temple, for example, requires visiting it every day and focusing on it in order to solidify its existence. Otherwise, it will dissolve back into nothingness.
Astral travel first begins as imagined projection. Have you ever sat in a chair, relaxed into Alpha, and travelled to different rooms in your house, or along your street, in your imagination? That is the precursor to astral travel.
I was simply imagining walking down my street once, and I suddenly wound up in Los Angeles (I live in Canada so LA is a considerable distance from me physically, so I have never been there). It was full on astral travel and it shocked me so much I snapped back into my head, and had a headache for a few hours.
I think if you consciously travel through your astral body at least once, then it solidifies it a little. So the more you astral travel, the more your consciousness is shifted away from the physical body.
