A Redditor Explains The Process of Spiritual Evolution From Chakras, To Clairvoyance And Astral Projection

It can be overwhelming to understand the complex aspects of spiritual evolution as we embark on our journey. Reddit user, Faiscajoe, used the findings of his own spiritual journey to give a brief explanation of how the process of spiritual evolution takes place. He shares that these findings are based on years of studies, experiences, and explanations provided by spiritual guides.

The first and most important step is to know that we have multiple bodies...

The Physical Body

The first body is the one that we use to interact with the world around us. It is the one that we are most aware of and that receives the most direct impact.

However, Faiscajoe explains that the physical body has limits and at some point, it will stop working. He says that this is the process that we know as "death."

Energetic Or Etheric Body

The second body we have is the energetic or etheric body. This is where the chakras and energy channels known as "nadis" are located.

This body is linked to the physical body. However, the Redditor highlights that the main difference is that when the physical body stops functioning (when we die), the energy body "dissipates".

Astral Or Spiritual Body

Then there is the astal or spiritual body, and perhaps the most complex body to comprehend. "This is the body we use when we die or when we are in an out-of-body experience. The spirit body does not die. We stay with this body until we need to reincarnate again," he explains.

Unlike the physical body, the astral body has fewer limitations, even though it appears to look the same.

Mental Body

The mental body is where the mind lives. This is where we store all of our experiences and memories, from this world and past ones. We use this body to first process all of our actions, decisions, and reflections, and then to manifest them into other bodies.

"When we reincarnate, the mental body brings all the learning we had in past lives, contributing to our spiritual progress."

Opening Your Chakras

It is very important to open up and stabilize our chakras and "nadis" in the process of spiritual evolution. Think of it this way: "a person who is spiritually evolved will always have the higher chakras more active compared to the lower chakras."

Lower chakras are active through negative emotions like anger and greed. On the other hand, higher chakras are active through pure and positive emotions, such as love and tranquility. We can open up our chakras through meditation or practicing our passions.

Nurturing Emotions Over Lifetimes

The redditor acknowledges that we go through all kinds of negative and positive emotions every single day. What is important to note is our spiritual body is "programmed" to act in a very specific way if our emotions and feelings are in a certain pattern. For example, if we allow frequent negative thoughts we create a power of negative attraction.

"A person who after several lifetimes learns to only nurture positive emotions and develop concentration (and I reiterate, this is something that only happens with several lifetimes of suffering and learning), will be able to extensively keep the upper chakras active."

Developing clairvoyance

The spiritual evolution process has a huge impact in unlocking certain powers in us naturally and safely, like the development of clairvoyance. These powers tend to be sleeping in us through society's conditioning.

As we energize the third eye and purify our energy, we reach new heights and capacities like ease of obtaining out-of-body experience. The Redditor explains: " since the energy upon reaching the Muladhara chakra will also clear all the nadis throughout the body, it will facilitate the astral body detachment from the physical body; manifesting certain 'powers.'"

Projecting From The Physical Body

The process of energy passing through the Nadi to the upper chakra, when the energy reaches the top of the head, unlocks the ability to travel outside of the physical body.

"A person who is in more advanced conditions will be able to perform mahāsam,dhi, when the individual consciously chooses to definitely detach from the physical body. When this happens, that person has no need to incarnate again, as all his karma is already dissipated."

The Second Death

Once a person is able to consciously travel outside of their second body, they experience the process known as "the second death. This is when the spirit leaves the astral body and only manifests through the mental body.

We no longer have a need for a physical body at that point and can move on on to our next life.

Knowledge Is Power

Before you try too hard and wonder why you're not able to reach this height in your spiritual evolution, remember that the Redditor shares" everything I said in this post happens naturally, throughout our different lives.

Everyone will someday reach the point where they no longer need to reincarnate on this planet, without having to learn a specific meditation technique, for example. The only thing I can recommend to you is knowledge"

Why Some People See Ghosts While Others Don’t, According To Science

You would be surprised at how many people report sightings and apparitions of ghosts. However, some people are more prone to make these reports than others. For example, some studies show that almost half of widowed elderly Americans see a hallucination of their departed spouse. So are they are real or they just hallucinations we dream of during emotionally intense periods?

That's a hard question to answer because the definition of seeing ghosts can depend on the person. If we a define it as "sensing a presence" then it can be as simply as just feeling rather than actually "seeing." Thsi can happen in all kinds of states like when you're awake, or asleep, and when you're grieving or just focused enough to notice. In all cases, science can now explains why ghosts can be seen by some people, and not others.

The Fear Of Ghosts Itself

Some people are scared of the paranormal. It's not necessarily the ghosts themselves that make them feel uneasy, but the meeting of the unknown and the possibility of something they don't understand that defies the laws of nature as they've come to understand it. For that reason, these people don't particularly enjoy darkness, thunderstorms, or horror stories. However, the brain is funny that way. It's possible that it's the fear itself that tricks the mind into interpreting certain events as "paranormal.' This could be because the mind is already oriented towards that risk. Think of it like when you go do a presentation and work yourself up so you forget all your lines.

On the other hand, those who don't give much thought to ghosts, aren't opening themselves up to the possibility of seeing them. So chances are, even if ghosts are real and have shown themselves to them, these people likely brushed it off with a more rational explanation.

Inability To Breath Properly

​We take our ability to let the breath in and back out naturally for granted. However, when you actually bring awareness to the breath you can control its speed which can have good or harmful effects on your mind and body. For some people, breathing is actually harder because their brains don't get enough oxygen to operate properly. This could be developed with habits like smoking which is known as cerebral anoxia.

When the brain is deprived of oxygen it can start to play tricks on the mind. It'll see things that aren't there or hear voices that aren't present. These hallucinations can feel like out-of-body experiences and mimick ghost sightings and other paranormal activity.

Being Exposed To Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Usually, paranormal sightings are accompanied by physical systems like dizziness, nausea, and shortness of breath. Do you know what else causes these symptoms? Carbon monoxide poisoning. So when people report that their house is haunted, they probably should also double-check that their monoxide detector is working well.

This odorless gas often goes undetected despite sometimes having fatal repercussions. People who have been infected by the poisoning are more prone to hallucinations that make them believe in ghosts.

High Stress Situations

A study tried to find the differences between people who have never had a paranormal experience and those who have. They found that supernatural experiences most likely happened in threatening or ambiguous environments. This means that stress was often a factor and the more in danger a person felt, the more likely they were to "see ghosts."

For example sailors, mountain climbers, and polar explorers often come home with vivid stories of ghosts following them, living in abandoned ships, or sending them rescuers. These people were often in life or death situations that amplified their sense of a paranormal presence

Inability To Sleep Properly

One of the easiest ways to start losing your mind and ability to tell reality from distortion is by losing enough sleep. Eventually, insomnia takes over the sleep-deprived mind to play all kinds of tricks. Sleep is vital for a sharp mind and alert sensations.

The less sleep they have the more likely a person is to lose their sense of reality and get lost in a world they deem paranormal. Maybe this is the only time they're able to let go of the conditioning that prevents them from seeing ghosts. Maybe that's why children have an easier time seeing them and then grow out of it. Or maybe these people just need more sleep.

Being Surrounded By Technology

In today's day and age, it's almost impossible to escape technology. We're surrounded by electrical appliances, televisions, phones, even if they aren't our own. To operate, these technologies create strong electromagnetic fields around them. Studies have shown that these electromagnetic fields interfere with our biological setup such as the electromagnetic field which our minds create.

Some people are more impacted and exposed to these effects, making them more prone to conjuring up ghosts. Keep in mind, that often reports of ghost sightings tell stories of ghosts who disrupt these fields such as by randomly turning on the tv or increasing the volume on the radio on their own

Living In Isolation Or Unusual Circumstances

Similarly as when experiencing high levels of stress people who have become isolated in an extreme or found themselves in unusual environments were more likely to "see ghosts" This is probably due to their need to feel like someone or something else was also with them as a coping mechanism.

Usually, they can't describe the experience in detail but out's more of a vague feeling they remember like someone was watching them. ,

Looking Inwards

A study proposed that we spend a lot of time processing the sensations from the world around us. But when we encounter a sensation that we're unprepared to process, like extreme loneliness or survival, we start to look inwards. This means that our greatest perception ability is the one we find in ourselves.
