Go farther than ever before in your journeys to other realities. You want to take up fishing so you get some books on the subject. Great, except every book you find only tells you how to get in and out of the boat. The real business of fishing - what the ocean is like, how to navigate, how to land the really big one - aren't explained in any of them. You are beginning to understand both the strengths and the shortcomings of previous out-of-body books. For nearly a decade, Hampton Roads has been at the forefront of publishing books on the out-of-body exploration of the astral world. Following in that tradition comes "Astral Projection And The Nature Of Reality," a work that goes farther than ever before in explaining the dimensions to which the out-of-body adventurer can go. Magnus provides a brief history of astral projection and then guides the reader through a step-by-step course for reliable projection. Once out-of-body, Magnus explains how we create our own astral world and offers techniques for taming both our mind and the nature of our reality.

The author fills most of the pages with pointless stories of his dreams and what he claims to be astral experiences.However it seems that sometimes even he is not sure whether it is just a dream or an astral projection.You can barely read a page with out having to endure one of his stories about his boring nonsensical dreams.I fail to understand how his dreams help me to learn astral projection and I just don't want to hear about them and I think the author is just trying to fill pages of his book.He even tells us a story about how he and his wife are out walking and find some penny's.Sorry...but how does this help me exactly?.
Through out the book the author gives you what I consider to be pointless and impractical exercises.For example tying a piece of string around your finger and then walking around with it all day being part of one of them.If like me you work in a profession its hardly practical to walk around work all day with string tied round your finger.People will wander what the hell you're doing.I fail to see how string round my finger will help me leave my body.Another one of his plans is to 'imagine you're in a submarine'.Some of his exercises require you to wake up several times during the night, which is hardly practical if you have work in the morning.
The only reason I have given this two stars is because the book does seem to have 'some' interesting paragraphs about consciousnesses but apart from that most of it seems pointless and i,m not even sure if i,m going to finish the book.Others seem to like it but I don't see how it can help as it doesn't seem to offer any real scientific explanations on how you astral project, and I don't like the techniques he gives.
Buy it if you want a good read on this topic.

The author presents the subject material in this book in a more rational way, which I could relate to, as compared to the other books I read on this subject. His ideas on the mind and how it works it relation to the physical were interesting and somewhat unique. He also presents the material in what he calls “circles” rather than chapters or sections.
There are four circles: The first circle (Preparing for the Astral) provides an introduction to what is astral projection, the history of astral projection, prepare for adventure, awareness and numerous other topics. The second circle (Getting out there) explores sleep status, affirmations, visualization, attitude, and the energy of intent, energy excises, exit techniques and other information on astral projection. The third circle (Mind” your step) explains in more details the specifics of getting the most out of your astral experience. The final circle (the nature of reality) gives some views on the meaning of life, our nature, the worlds beyond, the nature of reality, and further explorations.
I do not agree with some of the author's evaluation of the nature of reality, being more of a scientific minded person; nevertheless, he does pose some interesting questions about the nature of astral projection and reality.
If you are seeking a comprehensive introduction to astral projection and astral travel you should check out this volume, which you can pick up on Amazon for a bargain price.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Samurai Soul: An old warrior’s poetic tribute).
There is a section on healing that I found incredibly helpful and just that is worth the value of the book.
This is a MUST HAVE for anyone learning about astral projection.
I also have read most of the sparse literature on the subject. I'm willing to read any books that come out on this subject. who know, maybe some day I'll write one myself.
