So I was startled the other day, due to the relatively low amount of experienced people in this areas, most new readers (including myself from not so long) to the subject of lucid dreaming, out-body-experiences, astral projection, are not aware of the facts, myths and loopholes that guard the fluidness of this topic from... most dedicated practitioners, or hermits of the art. So, in order to produce some useful information here, I'll try to bring the veil down a little to what's true and what's not, or what needs to remain uncertain, to try and encompass most of the fears, mistakes, false assumptions, and wrong doings of many in the early stage attempting to project, or lucid dream, or go out-of-body, since, it is apparent that many new tend to focus on this factors at first (and I was not the exception) so I'll start with some myths here, please anyone fell free to add to the list, so I can keep on editing this post with due credit to the idea. I'll start by posting one of them, and daily will think of more to add, I’ve got a fair share of them written down somewhere. Before starting, I want to state that I do not wish to produce any kind of information that goes about spreading fear to people, only a useful tool for anyone to find and gather from the insights whatever comes to benefit his or her journey. Myth #1 The traveler who lost his minds Throughout the world wide web, there are accounts of many people from different countries sharing their stories, some just want to share it to however comes across and finds it beneficial, others enjoy giving someone who comes about their post a good scary time, among other reasons this two tend to predominate, and whatever else falls in the gap between this two extremes is like counting in between degrees of temperature. Some of this accounts explain of projectors who have come and go about losing their minds, they believed that traveling unaided, unguided in the astral or non-physical realms, without a proper focus in protection would bring them close to entities capable of make them lose their minds, this is rather a wide statement, since the non-physical is so unfathomably big, but the links to different accounts remain, and this cannot be dismissed a s simple coincidence. For anyone here, take into account this is only a myth, and the people producing /spreading this myth are the kind of superstitious people that believe in things like ‘don’t drink from aluminum cans or you’ll get bad luck’; ‘don’t speak with a ghost if you see one or you’ll get Alzheimer and forget you saw it’; ‘don’t try to scare a lost soul or it will haunt you forever’; ‘if you see an underworld creature it will scare you so bad your hair will turn white and you’ll become old at once’ among some other sayings around… To finish with this myth, there are no claims of this being false or it being true, most articles coming from whatever source are there for the reader to enjoy, and few comments have ever being made by practitioners of the art regarding the above, they tend to simply dismiss it and put it aside, others may fall for the scary vibes of it unaware, whatever way it goes, the fact remains that the same article has never been claimed to be false by the author who wrote, not even in a faint attempt to excuse himself/herself to the readers, so the truth remains uncertain.
