First Sentence
In deciding on the direction of this book, I was faced with three options: first, to write only about that which conforms to accepted norms of current science, thus staying within the confines of my medical training and suppressing certain information regarding extraphysical reality (as many authors have done in works which are currently in circulation). Read the first page

I have read this precious book at least 3 times and now keep it as an indispensable reference book. My personal experience with this book has been extraordinary! Projections of the Consciousness is a rich fountain of practical information that enabled me to experiment with various energetic techniques and served as a reference guide in terms of the different extraphysical communities encountered when one is out of the body. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE THAT I FOUND BETWEEN THIS BOOK AND OTHER BOOKS ON THE OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE IS THAT THIS BOOK ADDRESSED OUR PERSONAL LEVEL OF ETHICS AND COSMOETHICS IN RELATION TO OUR OBES. Why are we researching the OBE? Why are we going out of our bodies in the first place? What are our INTENTIONS vis-a-vis extraphysical contact and communication with others? This book inspired these crucial questions. A MUST READ AND A BOOK TO ENJOY FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES. Most touching.

Format: Paperback
Without doubt and by a long shot, this is the best book I read about out of body experiences and extraphysical realities. Without even a slight trace of mysticism or oneiric imagination, the author recounts direct experiences with other dimensions, extraphysical friends and companions, evolved beings, as well as different possibilities while in a projective state. Over the years, this book has been a foundation as well as an inspiration for my consciential research. Dr. Vieira, who is a prolific writer and veteran projector, builds up our understanding of the extraphysical life account by account, bringing in important multi-dimensional concepts such as assistance, evolutionary levels and cosmoethics. Before reading this book, I thought out of body experiences were just a fun psychic activity all of us could train for to enjoy. After reading this book, I see the vibrant possibilities of a projective state as a fundamental tool for my self- realization as a multi-dimensional consciousness evolving over a series of lifetimes, with the ability to directly take charge of my evolutionary destiny as well as capacity to provide important assistance to the extraphysical team. No longer just a fun "evolutionary tourism" type of activity, OBE allows us to stand with our feet firmly placed on this planet, but our head in the cosmos, living lucidly within a rich multi-dimensional context of prioritized evolution. Strongly recommended!

The author has developed an entire lexicon for OBEs which makes reading this book somewhat difficult. He seems to be a prolific projector although his experiences are atypical. There is little here for a novice to really use.

The best I have found 18 Nov 2005
By L. Peacock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have found this book to be one of the best out there on the subject. It is the author's diary of 60 willed out of body experiences.
The layout is excellent with a short explaination of his mental and environmental state before the OBE, followed by a description of activities that occured while out of body. Then relevant material and hindsight are added.
I found myself reading one or two of the 60 chapters before bed and it really gets you inspired and appreciating that the phenomenon is real. I still refer to the book often.
It contains heaps of metaphysical info and great insight. The way that other conscious personalities assist the author in leaving the body, teach and perform tasks with the author while out of body is amazing and something rarely mentioned to any great extent in other books.
The author has formed his own glossary of terms and jargon in the study his "projectiology". Although this was a bit hard to grasp in the beginning, you soon get used to it and appreciate it's originality.
Quite often books on this subject are written by authors with all this information on the subject, ie: method, method, method; but they hardly ever mention their own experiences, and if they do, they are not seriously examined. This book is entirely different. It is a well thought-out, intelligent and inspiring record of real experiences.

Mind-bending and inspirational 1 Mar 2006
By Astral NaviGator - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are many kinds of incredible, rich experiences detailed in this book that I re-read random chapters every once in a while. Great synchronicities some times, but the main thing is that it has given me mental targets for my OBE's. Before I didn't know how to really take advantage of my experiences and I just had them spontaneously. After this book I started training to have them by will like the author. My experiences are not typically as advanced as his and but I am having them more and more often. I have helped other people, gone to Europe, met friends from South America, and had joint OBE's with my girlfriend. And I have met spiritual guides (Helpers, as Vieira calls them) which has been very profound. My infantile ideas about this are shedding away from my own experiences. And now I live life more often as a spirit then just a machine in the rut. Thank you Dr. Vieira. And Thanks to other authors like Monroe and Crookall. But this book stands out for the kinds of OBE's - wow.

An excellent piece of work which deserves to be better known 16 Jan 2009
By Prokopton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Brazillian MD and spiritual investigator, Waldo Vieira, has here produced a log of 60 OBEs he made in the 70s, and they are absolutely fascinating. This would probably be better known if it had more direct OBE instruction in it. (It does have some interesting sidebars on technique, but you couldn't project from this book alone I don't think.)

It's true that his writing is stilted. He says he wants to write "an objective, rather than a literary work, composed of technical reports," and so he does... "After receiving some instructions from Transmentor through psychophonic monologue, I laid down in the dorsal position at 7:12 pm" is a fair sample of the style. But Vieira does have a sense of humour and a poetic soul, as ultimately proves, and the unvarnishedness of the reports is very valuable in itself.

The wealth of experiences described here is fascinating and will inspire any projector to improve their own mastery. There's much that hasn't been recorded by anyone else - a night journey which shows human encounters with heroic monsters are far from dead for example, or a gigantic storm clearing away psychotic ghosts, love lighting up a tombstone, a moving day in the life of a truly enlightened being, and more.

Many of Vieira's experiences have to do with illustrating conditions immediately before birth and after death for our race at this time, and there are often little moral insights that illustrate what he calls the 'cosmoethic' -- the means of living truly well in this universe, I suppose one could say.

Vieira is also the first of the modern OBE authors to really nail the truth talked about in older works and traditions (eg. Franz Bardon's course which would be very compatible with Vieira) -- that there is such a thing as the mental body, and that it can project without the astral body attached, just as the astral can without the physical. He plays with this a few times. He also works with Guides constantly, including energetic transfers, which are well delineated and will suggest ideas to some practitioners.

A slight caveat: I'm using these fairly standard terms (astral, physical), but Vieira doesn't. Like other determinedly 'scientific' researchers -- eg. Monroe -- he wants an all-new and more objective-sounding terminology, rejecting older systems as overly mystical or vague. I don't blame him for it exactly, but his choice of terms is frankly ugly. Why we have to put up with 'intraphysical' and 'extraphysical' instead of the more common 'physical' and 'non-physical' I cannot understand; certainly there is no improvement in readability, and I doubt there is one in clarity. Perhaps it sounds better in Portuguese? Some of his other terms are somewhat better, but I'm not wild about 'soma' (body), 'psychosoma', 'mentalsoma' (mental body) etc. either. I would have thought that new terms ought to be coined only for new phenomena, if at all. The overwhelming number of them here really does make the English awkward.

I guarantee though that if you are able to get past this linguistic oddity you will be rewarded with a very insightful collection of reports. Most are to the low or middle earthzone, but the last shows that, even in 1979 when these projections were taking place, Vieira was able to reach a high spiritual level. His language goes into very unscientific raptures as he encounters a taste of mental perfection, well worth reading and very inspiring.

Vieira would rank highest for me, I think, of all the modern projection authors who belong to no spiritual tradition, and such people as Buhlman or Bruce would be well rewarded by looking at his work. Someday I might tackle his larger and more technical book, 'Projectiology'. I confess, I don't look forward to the vocabulary! But there is a unique and valuable spiritual voice here, and one with a great deal of expertise.

This book, meanwhile, really should not be missed by anyone with an interest in this subject matter. It is a great piece of work.

Projections of the Consciousness is incredibly informative. 23 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Of all the books on out-of-the-body experiences that I've read, I found Projections of the Consciousness to be the best due to it's realistic description of extraphysical reality. PC is not sugar-coated - it is to the point. It is filled with useful information that can be a help to conscious projectors and those yet to have the experience. I've read the book a total of three times and with each read, I get more incite. It is truly a worthwhile read.
