Three Experiences That I Had with the Other Side

Using the Astral Plane for Spiritual Learning

Experience submitted by Geraldine Price

One morning, as I drifted in and out of sleep, I found myself projecting spontaneously out of my body. I was standing in my bedroom and everything looked the same, but I had just started to learn about the astral plane after taking a course on astral projection by Belsebuub, and I knew I could check ‘where I was’ by taking a small jump and see if could levitate/fly.

I jumped a couple of times, and found myself being able to hover/fly — this was all the confirmation I needed to know that I had made it to the astral dimension.

As I hovered toward my bedroom door, I recalled that Belsebuub had mentioned in his work to use the astral plane for spiritual learning. As I was flying through my bedroom door, I wondered what it was made of, as I did that, I felt a pull toward the interior of the door, and literally merged with it.

I started to see all the different materials that the door was made of. It was like seeing layer after layer unfolding: from the various coats of paint, down to the wood, to the grain and as I watched, I kept going deeper and deeper in the door itself down to seeing the molecules, then down to the atoms – it was simply amazing.

I could see the nucleus of the atoms as a bright shiny ball of light with tiny flying smaller sparks (the electrons) orbiting around these ‘small suns’.

It was incredible to be able to see this first-hand. It was like they were holding a certain distance to each other, and knew where to go, avoiding one another, yet everything was in motion and at great speed.

There was an order to what seemed like total chaos. It was both filled with light and darkness. It was like seeing miniature galaxies, each spinning around each other with the electrons as planets and the nucleus being their suns. It really felt like seeing the universe but at the atomic level. Looking back on this experience, it gave me a certain understanding of life, of what we are made of ultimately: light and darkness.

All this happened very quickly, and I then felt myself being pulled out of the door toward another part of my house. This astral experience continued for a while, until I went back into my body, and woke up.

Dealings with a Negative Entity

One morning before going to work, I was trying to astral project using concentration as talked about in the Astral Codex by Belsebuub. I relaxed my body and concentrated on visualizing my home, imagining myself walking around, and interacting with my place. I fell asleep quite quickly doing this visualization, but then realized that I had made it to the astral because my body felt very light. I gently rolled over and stood up next to my bed.

Even though at the time of coming out of my body I could not see any negative entity, I started to sing the Bellilin recitation which dispels negative forces in the astral just in case. I had learned to do this from the course I had taken on dreams and out of body experiences by Belsebuub, so as to avoid being bothered by or have my astral experience influenced by a negative entity in some way.

After having done the recitation, I went on with my exploration and started hovering, leaving the house and finding myself in the apartment complex’s hallway.

There, to my surprise, was a negative entity — all cloaked in black, with a hood, and red lining on the edges of the cloth. As I stepped closer, I could see that it looked like it was caught in a whirlwind, unable to touch me or interact with me.

I felt a certain sadness for it after seeing it – I tried to look into its face to understand better what made it who and what it was, but the hair of this entity was in the way like if a wind was blowing it all around, while I perceived no wind at all. The entity was actually spinning on itself, seemingly out of control, frozen into this one spot. I was not sure how long it would stay that way, so I did not stay around to observe it much longer but went on with my exploration – however soon after, the alarm on my phone rang and I woke up.

Since that day Bellilin is my go-to recitation as soon as I find myself lucid and aware in my dreams, since I could see how well it worked through that experience. I was also surprised to later learn that a friend had almost the exact same experience as me with this recitation in an astral experience of her own.

Receiving Belsebuub’s Help and Guidance in the Astral

Several years ago, one night, I found myself becoming lucid and aware in my dreams. There I was in this beautiful room, filled with light, white walls and pastel colors. It had a really nice feel to it, like everything in this place seemed to hold a meaning and as I looked around I started to feel this pull toward different objects and symbols in the room. As I got closer to one, all of a sudden a negative entity came in and grabbed me by my feet so that I could not get closer to the symbol. I struggled to say the protective recitation – so realizing this I called for help, and I called on the being Belsebuub, praying for his help. To my happy surprise he appeared, saw the situation and directed his right hand toward my feet and a beam of blue light came out of his fingers. I saw the negative entity completely disappearing, and I was now free. I realized I had just witnessed the power of the light in defeating negative entities.

With Belsebuub there with me, I noticed that had a simple yet powerful and loving presence. I was thankful for his help with freeing me from that negative entity, but now as I stood before him I realized I was not sure what I wanted to ask him for a teaching – so he directed me toward the symbol I was drawn to in the first place so that I was able to look at it. As I was able to now have a good look at it, I knew that Belsebuub was more than happy to help people looking for guidance, but since I did not have any particular question I understood that he had to go, which he did after providing some advice for my personal inner spiritual work.

  • Amazing experiences, Geraldine.

    Your experience of understanding life better through the atom is quite remarkable.

    Clearly so many things are able to be learned through being conscious!

  • Thanks Geraldine, those are inspiring experiences! It must have been amazing to see into the structure of atoms! It’s very interesting how you felt Belsebuub had to go away as you didn’t have anything particular to ask him. I’ve also woken up regretful that I don’t hold questions on the ‘tip of my tongue’ when I see him, or don’t have a strong will to go anywhere/do something when I become lucid. All too often it means I waste an experience just enjoying the sensations of flying around 🙁

    • Good point there about having a purpose in the astral, especially if calling someone. I’ve found it really important to always have an “astral goal” in mind, so that when I do have a conscious experience I think to do it straightaway and don’t waste the valuable opportunity.

  • Thanks for sharing your experiences Geraldine. It must have been very profound to see where the Astral Plane is made of down to the very atom and that they themselves are made up of light and darkness, how symbolic.

    I can relate to Belilin being a divine wind that expels darkness and have used it many times with great results. On example is of a dream where I was in an open place and a negative being was quite far away from me. He was looking at me in an evil way which made me freeze. Being unable to move, I started to sing Belilin to counter the negativity. The being started to laugh to make me feel stupid and incapable of doing three rounds of the recitation. When I started the third round of Belilin, I saw his attitude change from haughty to being afraid. He then ran at me with great rage although only managed to cross half of the distance between him and me. At that point a powerful tornado like wind swept through the plane and took him away. I was not affected but saw the wind cleaning the atmosphere. I then was able to continue my experience.

    • That sounds like a really neat experience! That tornado wind from the Bellilin recitation seems to have been seen by many people in the astral.
      I’ve seen as well how negative entities try to mock, or stop me from finishing up the recitations, or trying to make me doubt I’m saying them right or something, but if I persevere they always work.

    • This is great Roy, I especially liked how you were able to perceive how the wind cleared the atmosphere.

  • That’s so interesting, thanks Geraldine for sharing! Its also neat to see another person who has experienced how Bellilin works like a wind. It amazes me how words or combinations of them can have such a power out there, not just like here in the physical world – we say something and nothing happens (or maybe we just don’t see all the implications of our words on the other planes), but in the astral, things seem to be working in a much more profound way.

    Also thank you for sharing that atom experience – that so beautiful about them being mini solar systems! 🙂 I have some questions about atoms as well, as well as different chemical elements and the different bonds between them, so maybe one day…

    All the best with your astral journeys!

  • Thanks for sharing your experiences Geraldine. What stood out to me was your first experience, and especially the curiosity about the door. I wonder what made you curious in it.

    Personally, I think this type of interest is a bit of a treasure. I’ve had quite a few experiences where that curiosity led me to learning, and it’s something I’m reflecting on now. To see the difference between an inspired curiosity and a curiosity that is based on interest in the mind, which drains psychologically. I wonder, have you got any tips on what to do to find that inspiration?

    • Hi Aleks, not really any tip. But I remember from that experience that during the day, I often thought about what I wanted to do if I found myself awake/aware in the astral. So I think that this goal of plan of action so to speak was very clear and thinking of it often helped me once I was in the astral to not get lost in wondering what I could do. As in many other experiences, I have seen how this can waste a great opportunity, like not having a question ready to ask a Divine Being for example!
      About the curiosity of the door, it really happened spontaneously – this experience of the door is only part of a much longer experience I had that day. But as as I went through the door, I paid attention to what was happening, and was not dismissive of it. I guess in a sense, I had no pre-conceived ideas of what I should know or experience and was really open to the learning and discovering. I think that this may have been part of it, that genuine wonder. And also a massive help from the Divine 🙂

  • Those are some great experiences Geraldine and so inspiring to read about your experience with the being Belsebuub helping you and offering advice. Its also interesting to hear about multiple people’s depictions of negative entities dressed in black cloaks with red linings.

  • That experience with the atoms sounds so beautiful to me. That something as simple and common as a door can hold something so beautiful. It makes me think that life itself is beautiful beyond our comprehension.

    Thank you also for sharing your experience with Belsebuub. It sounds so meaningful, powerful to meet him like that.

  • Thanks for sharing those experiences Geraldine, they all seem to hold a great learning for you. I especially like that kindness shown by Belsebuub despite you not having a question.

    Hope you’ve had many more mystical experiences since!

  • Hi Jenny, yes it was pretty special, I was totally blown away by the fact that everything is made of light and darkness down to our very atomic core..

  • Nice experiences, Geraldine 🙂 That one with the atom reminded me of a similar experience I had had of traveling through the floor, and in the process inadvertently pausing to examine the different fibers and makeup of the carpet — it was really interesting to feel yourself merged with other forms of matter for a moment and sort of understand how it all functions and clicks together. Wish I had seen the atoms as you did though — I didn’t get that detailed of a view as my experience carried on. It sounds very special though.

  • Awesome experiences there Geraldine – just goes to show what can happen in conscious out-of-body experiences. That atom situation sounds particularly profound! I’ve had experiences where I’ve simply felt different materials in the astral and was amazed at the heightened sense, as if I could feel the very “essence” of what I was touching. Other times I’ve put my hands through solid objects which again is pretty amazing to experience. But of course there’s so much that we can get from these OBEs, which I think is more along the lines of what you shared in that experience where Belsebuub helped you.

  • The beam of blue light coming out of Belsebuub’s hand sounds like it would have been really awesome to see 🙂 Interesting too the negative entity stuck in the whirlwind. I’ve had some experiences where I did the recitations, and it stopped the negative entity from being able to do anything, but then I freaked out and lost the experience anyway because it didn’t go away completely. Wish in those times I had have actually looked to see what was going on with the negative entity first!

    • Hi David, yes it was pretty surreal and memorable – so many things were verified in that astral experience 🙂

      • Hey Geraldine, Just wanted to say that I had an interesting experience last night thanks to your article. I usually never use the bellilin recitation in the astral as I find the jupiter is so much quicker, but I woke up in a dream and got grabbed by a bunch of people. I remembered what you said and started doing the bellilin and towards the end of saying it some of the hands got blown off me, and then when I got through the whole thing the rest of them went too and I was able to continue the experience. So thank you!
