I first came across the silver cord astral projection theory after watching the Donnie Darko movie. I was enthralled by the stream/jet of water that led him through different dimensions. By chance I ended up on a page covering the silver cord astral projection and I was at once taken aback by the subject – it sounded so cool!
The Silver Cord
The silver cord seems to be loosely based around the same principals as the umbilical cord for a baby. The umbilical cord is cut to release the baby from the life line of the mother – the silver cord astral projection is cut to release the spirit from the life giving source of the body!
During near death experiences the silver cord remains in tact – this is how the spirit is allowed to return to the body. If a near death experience involves the silver cord breaking then the process is irreversible – the subject dies and their spirit moves on to the spirit world.
Cable Made of Light
The silver cord astral projection is often described as an inch thick cable made of light. It’s sort of like a long and bright elastic band which appears very smooth. When it is viewed closely it apparently gives off an array of sparkles much like you would see on a Christmas tree.
There is no specific part of the human body that the silver chord can be attached to. When the body dies the spirit leaves the body and drifts further and further away – the silver cord is what keeps the spirit connected. Eventually the spirit stretches out the chord to breaking point and is released into the spirit world – this is when the death of the body occurs.
Near Death Experiences
A lot of people that have had near death experiences have claimed that they actually felt the silver cord stretch as they left their body – it felt almost at breaking point! This is when they returned to their body in a sort of snapping motion! It’s said to be similar to when you stretch out a rubber (elastic) band with your hands and let one side go – the snap back motion.
It is thought the silver cord astral projection is in place to prevent people from the suffering involved with violent deaths. If this type of death occurs the silver cord severs itself to prevent the body from feeling the pain.
I found the concept of the silver cord astral projection so interesting especially when I realized it was mentioned in the bible. I recently lost my sister at the age of 35 and I’ve been pottering around the theories and explanations of life after death ever since.
This is for obvious reasons and I think many of us go down this route when we lose someone so close to us. I have the added benefit of always feeling there was something else for us out there – something with a little meaning.
Anyway I could go on all day about this subject and rationalize you all to sleep but I thought the subject was worth covering here today – it always feels a peaceful subject to me!
I would love to hear your thoughts and your experiences on this subject – no matter how wild they may be. Please leave any additions in the comment section below 🙂
