Welcome to the AD Pedia in Alphabetical Order.
It is in the process of being completely rewritten due to the length of the original document.
It has been divided by letter(s), which should make searching a little easier.
Due to the greatness of the task, most of the links have not been updated yet, but they are being worked on as you read this.

Many if not all the links have been reestablished ATM. There are some links that are still connected to archived information, but they work. Some themes have added links, and some have been redirected.

P.S. If you don't see the letter you're looking for, make sure the page is set to see posts that are older than one month. Scroll down the Subforum front page and look at the display options. It is set by default to 'posts that are one month'. Change it to 'beginning' and you will see all of them.

Akashic Records
The akashic records (akasha is a Sanskrit word meaning "sky", "space" or "aether") is a term used in theosophy (and Anthroposophy) to describe a compendium of mystical knowledge encoded in a non-physical plane of existence. These records are described as containing all knowledge of human experience and the history of the cosmos. They are metaphorically described as a library; other analogues commonly found in discourse on the subject include a "universal computer" and the "Mind of God". People who describe the records assert that they are constantly updated and that they can be accessed through astral projection. The concept originated in the theosophical movements of the 19th century.

Anima, Animus
The Anima and Animus are, in Carl Jung's school of analytical psychology, the unconscious or true inner self of an individual, as opposed to the persona or outer aspect of the personality. In the unconscious of the male, it finds expression as a feminine inner personality: anima; equivalently, in the unconscious of the female, it is expressed as a masculine inner personality: animus.


Theoretically, we are whole beings (that is, our souls are neither female nor male) so when we are one gender, the opposite gender characteristics of the persona's soul become part of the unconscious.-CF's note.

Auras Aura: It is a field of subtle, luminous radiation surrounding a person or object like the halo or aureola of religious art.[1] The depiction of such an aura in religious art usually connotes a person of particular power or holiness.

According to the literature of movements (such as Theosophy, Anthroposophy, Archeosophy, etc.) each color of the aura has a precise meaning, indicating a precise emotional state. A complete description of the Aura and its colors was provided by Charles Leadbeater, a theosophist of the 19th century.[2] The works of Leadbeater were later developed by Palamidessi[3] and others.

The Tibetan word Bardo means literally "intermediate state" - also translated as "transitional state" or "in-between state". In Sanskrit the concept has the name antarabhāva.

Beliefs and Faith
Belief is the psychological state in which an individual is convinced of the truth of a proposition. Like the related concepts truth, knowledge, and wisdom, there is no precise definition of belief on which scholars agree, but rather numerous theories and continued debate about the nature of belief.

Faith has two general implications which can be implied either exclusively or mutually:
To trust:
Believing a certain variable will act or has the potential to act a specific way despite the potential influence and probability of known or unknown change.
To have faith in one's spouse that he/she will keep a promise of commitment
To have faith that the world will someday be peaceful
To have faith in a person to pay you back
To believe without reason:
Believing impulsively, or believing based upon personal hopes
In either case, Faith is based upon the interpretation of the intangible (feelings, emotions, etc.) instead of the physically tangible and is primarily associated with religion in modern times.

Binaural Beats-
Binaural beats or binaural tones are auditory processing artifacts, or apparent sounds, the perception of which arises in the brain independent of physical stimuli. This effect was discovered in 1839 by Heinrich Wilhelm Dove.
The brain produces a phenomenon resulting in low-frequency pulsations in the loudness of a perceived sound when two tones at slightly different frequencies are presented separately, one to each of a subject's ears, using stereo headphones. A beating tone will be perceived, as if the two tones mixed naturally, out of the brain. The frequency of the tones must be below about 1,000 to 1,500 hertz for the beating to be heard. The difference between the two frequencies must be small (below about 30 Hz) for the effect to occur; otherwise, the two tones will be heard separately and no beat will be perceived.
Binaural beats are of interest to neurophysiologists investigating the sense of hearing. Second (and more controversially), binaural beats reportedly influence the brain in more subtle ways through the entrainment of brainwaves[1][2] and can be used to produce relaxation and other health benefits such as pain relief.[3]

Spiritism and Channeling, Robert says:

See my article 'Popular Model conundrum' on the following page
This discusses some of Kardec's work, spiritism, and other things. Spiritism is based on the words of channelled spirits. It is what you
make of it. Some of it is good, some (in my opinion) is a bit dubious. Take what works for you. Use personal experience where possible
to link to the truth of what you read. Do not believe everything you read that comes from spirits. Just because its a spirit does not mean
its authentic or that it is telling the entire truth. Personal experience is the best way to ascertain what is true and what is false.

Energy Work and Attacks, Robert says:

OBE, energy work, etc, does not make you more vulnerable to or more likely to experience negative experiences and or attacks. These things do, however, make you more aware of negative interference. Energy work, for example, will make your energy body more sensitive. If you are experiencing negative interference, then this sensitivity will make you more aware of what is happening.
Energy work does not in itself attract or make you more vulnerable to these things. This is like crawling under your house and finding it riddled with termites, rats and mould. These things where not created nor attracted by the act of crawling under your house. They were always there, but you were not aware of them until you were able to see them. The bright side of the above is that once you know about the true state of the underside of your house, you can call in an exterminator, or have this fixed in some way. Your house will be healthier and live longer. The bad side of this analogy is that it can be a shock, and it can be expensive and take a lot of time and effort to fix things.

Lucid Dream:

RB's opinion: (See the thread in Forum "Why Talk of Drugs is Discouraged in AD")

"The only cases I have come across where projectors have had seriously bad experiences with lower subplanes involved

hallucinogenic drugs being used to precipitate out-of-body experiences. Drugs, while capable of causing out-of-body experiences,

sidestep the required skills and abilities necessary for safe conscious-exit projection. This breaks many natural laws concerning

projection while artificially overcoming many natural safeguards and barriers. Natural barriers are there to protect the novice

from operating in dimensional areas they are not equipped to experience. "

This is a bit of a conundrum.

I don't think it would be wise to ban all threads that discuss drugs and OBE, and shamanistic drugs, etc.

There are reasons for this.

First, I noted in that thread some statements that smoking pot and etc is totally safe with no side effects. This is total bull<3<3<3<3. I have dealt

with a string of people over the past fifteen years or so who have mixed drug use and spiritual work and gone into drug-induced

psychosis. I am currently helping a young man with horrendous problems that stem from mixing drugs with magic and energy work,

etc. he went into full blown psychosis for three months. Then he went into psychosis for a month just by smoking some pot and drinking

beer. He recently caused a two week long psychosis just through alcohol. He is obviously becoming more and more sensitive, and

could slip into full schizophrenia for the rest of his life if he does not live a clean life, which I am recommending to him.

Medically speaking (I have discussed this with several doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, etc) this is well known, that drugs cause

psychosis and mental illness. Hospitals here in Aus are full of patients with drug induced psychosis, etc. It is difficult for a genuinely

mentally ill person, suicidal depression, or someone having a breakdown, to get into a mental hospital these days, because they are

choked with people suffering from drug induced psychosis type problems, or detoxing, etc.

I have also helped people who have developed serious addictions to mushrooms and pot, etc. They are not supposed to be addictive,

but they are. And the effects of such hallucinogenics are not what they seem. They may appear to reveal the greater reality, and I'm sure

they do to some extent (the lower astral mainly), but this most definitely does not provide access to the 'source'. I have talked at length

to such people and what they have brought back with them from such experiences is usually worthless. And for what insight they do

get into life, the harmful side effects badly outweigh.

So, back to the point, if we ban all such discussions, we do not get to give an opinion. And a healthy opinion would help those people

who are considering using such drugs to induce altered states, OBE, etc.

I have, btw, never used pot. Its never appealed to me. I have, however, had my pipe spiked a few times, and accidentally eaten mull

cookies. Pot has a nasty effect on me and I generally vomit a lot; not a nice time. I learned this in my teens and have avoided it since.

I do agree that pot has medicinal side to it, and I have seen it do wonders for people with neck injuries, cancer, etc. But, the pot today is

not what pot used to be, re its been bred to be so strong its more like hard drugs.

I have friends who smoke pot regularly and it seems to do them no harm, but I know it has the potential to do harm to some people in

some situations. This is particularly so when it comes to mixing spiritual practices with drugs and alcohol. This is not a good mix.

Note: I do not comment here on shamanistic substance use as taking substances, herbs, etc, under expert guidance is a bit different

from experimenting with no controls or wisdom as guidance.

Take care, Robert"

Egregore (also "egregor") is an occult concept representing a "thought form" or "collective group mind", an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The symbiotic relationship between an egregore and its group has been compared to the more recent, non-occult concepts of the corporation (as a legal entity) and the meme. See also: Thought-form, as the term is employed by Janet and Stewart Farrar.


meme: theoretical unit of cultural information, the building block of cultural evolution or diffusion that propagates from one mind to another analogously to the way in which a gene propagates from one organism to another as a unit of genetic information and of biological evolution.


In The Magician, his training and his work, by W. E. Butler, Aquarian Paperback, 1982 (1959), p.155, ... Butler writes that:

"A clear idea of the nature of the magical Egregore, or group form, should be built up in the mind in order that the aspirant may understand what part he plays in the whole complex scheme, and thereby may know how closely he is guided and aided in his chosen work."



"An elemental is a mythological being first appearing in the alchemical works of Paracelsus. Traditionally, there are four types:[1]
gnomes, earth elementals
undines, water elementals
sylphs, air elementals
salamanders, fire elementals.

In mysticism, magic and alchemy, an elemental is a creature (usually a spirit) that is attuned with, or composed of, one of the classical elements: air, earth, fire and water. The elements balance each other out through opposites: water quenches fire, fire boils water, earth contains air, air erodes earth. The concept of elementals seems to have been conceived by Paracelsus in the 16th century, though he did not in fact use the term "elemental" or a German equivalent.[3] Paracelsus gave common names for the elemental types, as well as alternate names, which he seems to have considered somewhat more proper. He also referred to them by purely German terms which are roughly equivalent to "water people," "mountain people," and so on, using all the different forms interchangeably. The Paracelsian elementals were:"

Five Tibetan Rites- http://www.mkprojects.com/pf_TibetanRites.htm

Flaming (to flame)

Flaming is the act of sending or posting messages that are deliberately hostile and insulting, usually in the social context of a discussion board on the Internet. Such messages are called flames, and are sometimes posted in response to flamebait.
Flaming is said by some to be one of a class of economic problems known as The Tragedy of the Commons, when a group holds a resource (in this case, communal attention), but each of the individual members has an incentive to overuse it. Flamers usually call their flames justified attacks.
Although the trading of insults is as old as human speech, flaming on the Internet, like many other online 'actions,' started in the Usenet hierarchies (although it was known to occur in the WWIVnet and FidoNet computer networks as well). A flame may have elements of a normal message, but is distinguished by its intent. A flame is typically not intended to be constructive, to further clarify a discussion, or to persuade other people. The motive for flaming is often not dialectic, but rather social or psychological. Sometimes, flamers are attempting to assert their authority, or establish a position of superiority. Other times, the flamer is simply a closed-minded or biased individual whose conviction that his is the only valid opinion leads him to personally attack any "dissenters." Occasionally, flamers wish to upset and offend other members of the forum, in which case they are trolls. Most often however, flames are angry or insulting messages transmitted by people who have strong feelings about a subject. Finally, some consider flaming to be a great way to let off steam, though the receiving party may be less than pleased.Similarly, a normal, non-flame message may have elements of a flame -- it may be hostile, for example -- but it is not a flame if it is seriously intended to advance the discussion.

Brow chakra headaches, Robert says:

The headaches are normal for beginners. These have been discussed in my work, under 'brow and crown pressure sensations'

with various wordings. A first time OBE, or near OBE can most definitely cause primary energy center (chakra) growing pains. These will

reduce soon, if not overnight then in one week. The golden rule must be adhered to here, and all energy work, OBE practice, anything,

should be stopped until everything is back to normal again. Pressure pains are a good sign, in that they indicate dormant energy

centers are waking up, etc.

Robert's view:

First off, please get a copy of my book, Practical Psychic Self-Defense', or borrow it from the library. Also read my online works on these matters.
This could be a succubus/incubus entity, but it could also be a projection from a living person, or from some other type of entity or earthbound xhuman.
An incubus/sucubus is a fairly powerful entity. They can be quite overwhelming, although they vary in strength and experience and
their method of approach. If one was attacking you, it would force you to orgasm by manipulating your energy body. It is very difficult to stop this happening, once they connect at close range - it can happen in seconds. This type of entity could still be involved, but it would be best to cover all bases.
This could interfere with OBE exits, if it were attached to or integrated with you, eg, if it is present inside you or is near you at the time
you try to OBE. But this would involve a sexual stimulation episode coninciding with an OBE exit. If this has not happened, then I would
not worry about it, eg, think positive.

Robert's views:

Robert recommends this website: http://www.kundalini-gateway.org/
Robert says:
The definition of what kundalini is should be discussed. Today, popularly, all energy body sensations are frequently attributed to kundalini. In a sense this is correct. Everyone experiencing energy body sensations can be said to have awakened Kundalini, as energy movement sensations and phenomena do relate to this.
Most young people that aspire to kundalini, it seems, do so because they have heard that it is a cool thing to do. I think very few actually understand what this involves. They hear the poetic descriptions of what this is supposed to be and they want to do it.

It must be kept in mind that pPsychic abilities have nothing to do with spiritual development. These can be a side effect, but they are not a yard stick. They certainly cannot be used to ascertain anyone's level of spiritual development. For example, a black mage or satanist can have a very high level of psychic ability. So these things should be put to one side when considering kundalini and spiritual development.

Kundalini is a natural energy mechanism that exists within everyone. It can be triggered in various ways, accidentally, spontaneously, or deliberately. This can, however, have serious negative side effects if people are not stable enough to handle this level of consciousness and growth.

Normal life, in the enormously complex hive that we call life, does not require a high level of consciousness. In fact, this would be detrimental to normal life, and would result in unhappiness and dysfunctionality in a normal life sense.

The purpose of kundalini is to evolve persons to higher levels of consciousness, in response to need. This is triggered by intellectual, emotional and spiritual efforts, and experiences that go beyond the norm.

So, in this sense, there would appear to be no age or health limitations to experiencing kundalini awakening.

However, the heavier phenomenon related to the higher end of kundalini, like Uraeus Serpent of Fire, are not suitable for children or teens. This requires a high level of stability on all levels, or it will have destabilizing and destructive results, even causing serious mental and physical illnesses.

Fortunately, in my experience, Uraeus is not something that can be easily or accidentally triggered. As I have suggested, mastering conscious astral projection and similar first, as this is childsplay in comparison.

Robert's view on Positive Thinking:

Tuning into your higher self and following your intuition, following the bees, is the best way to ensure your physical safety. This is also about creating your own reality, about positive thinking, and about common sense, and about developing your protective senses.

There are also magical ways to improve your safety, eg, making protective talismans and etc.
Robert Bruce

The law of attraction, universal law, manifestation, magic, Bee Following, are all related.

Where your attention goes, your energy flows. This is a principal law. It can be applied to manifestation.

Ritual, visualization, and energy, all play a part in manifesting things and energies into the physical realm.

To manifest an object into your life, get a picture of the object and put it up somewhere where you will see it frequently. Visualize this coming into your life, as if you already had it.

For a more indepth explantion, get a copy of The Secret.

Go to http://www.thesecret.tv (http://www.thesecret.tv/) I highly recommend this DVD!!! (some of the people from 'What the Bleep' are in this doco)

An example of using manifestation and energy:

A friend approached me several months ago, wanting help to sell her house. It had been up for sale for a year or two.

I suggested the following:

1. Tape a 'Sold' sign over the for sale sign in front of your home. Stand in front of this, smiling, and have someone take a picture. Make sure your house is also shown in pic.
2. Get a new metal picture frame, something fancy and expensive. On the back of the picture, write in bold the price you want for the house, eg, $550,000.00
3. Place picture in frame and place it somewhere where you will see it frequently in the day.
4. Every time you look at the pic, imagine the house as already being sold at the price you want. As you do this, raise energy to your heart on the in breath, and on the outbreath breathe out through your arms and hands and into the picture, mentally saying the words 'sold, sold, sold'
5. Whenever you think of your home or see the pic, think of it as being already sold.
6. Start getting ready to move, packing and etc, as if house is already sold.
When my friend did this, her house sold in less than four weeks for a lot more than she expected.

Manifesting Forum


Meditation is a discipline in which one attempts to get beyond the conditioned, "thinking" mind into a deeper state of relaxation or awareness.
Different meditative disciplines encompass a wide range of spiritual and/or psychophysical practices which can emphasize different goals - from the achievement of a higher state of consciousness, to greater focus, creativity or self-awareness, or just simply a more relaxed and peaceful frame of mind.
The various techniques of meditation can be classified according to their focus. Some focus on the field or background perception and experience, also called "mindfulness"; others focus on a preselected specific object, and are called "concentrative" meditation. There are also techniques that shift between the field and the object.

Medium-Someone who acts as an intermediary (middleman) or channel between two different states of being (CF's definition)
"ability of a person (the medium) to experience and/or to tell others about their experiences of contact with spirits of the dead, spirits of non-corporeal entities, angels, and/or nature spirits. By experiencing these visions, the medium generally claims to allow communication between non-mediumistic people and spirits who may have messages to share."

Monadic Plane, Monad
http://www.blavatskyarchives.com/thomas ... ciples.htm (http://www.blavatskyarchives.com/thomas/thomasprinciples.htm)


A Monad is an individualized expression of the Absolute, "Divine Spark", that exists or is expressed on the Anupadaka Plane of Existence. -Reworded by CF.

The Monad has three aspects, the Atman, Buddhi, and Manas. These three make up the Ego. From the Ego appear the causal body, mental body, and astral body, which 'ensoul' the physical body.

"Man's inner being has three aspects, according to occultism, analogous to [Saint] Paul's divisions of spirit, soul and body. Essentially man is a point of consciousness in the divine ground from which all emerges. This One Reality remains forever an undivided unity. Yet it emanates rays creating the immortal, indestructible Atman, as it is termed in Sanskrit. This ray is destined to become involved with denser and denser matter in order to obtain definiteness in the worlds of material expression. Clothed in a film of rarest matter it becomes the monad. Further encased in material from the higher mental realm, it becomes what Leadbeater calls the ego. His use of the word is far different from any modern usage. He means Atma-Buddhi-Manas, the spiritual triad or soul of man, which has a stable locus on the higher mental plane. This is the reincarnating entity which unfolds its powers by generating personalities over and over in the various cultures of man." (Charles Leadbeater, The Inner Life, page xxiii online or hardcopy)

M Band.
Term used by Robert Monroe to describe a part of the energy spectrum surrounding the Earth that is commonly used for thought. M Band noise is caused by uncontrolled thought. Monroe perceived this as a sort of chaotic cacophony.
-Far Journeys, RA Monroe.

Although most sources indicate he did not think it was electromagnetic, I'm also going to include the scientific definition. The reason is that Monroe was a sound engineer, and his technical knowledge could have had some influence in his choice of term.

Astral Noises, Hypnagogia:

In Astral Dynamics, p.512-513, Robert Bruce writes:
I believe there are two possible causes for astral noises:
Accidental: It is possible that natural sounds and voices are picked up by the heightened senses of the projecting double, as it tunes into
parts of the local real-time or astral environment during the prelude to an exit.
Deliberate: Another possibility is that some astral noises are deliberately produced and telepathically aimed at projectors by low order astral wildlife. Robert Bruce

Dealing with Astral Noises: Any and all astral noises must be totally ignored during the exit stage of an OBE. Robert Bruce

Elementals and Elementaries

When Negatives are elementals:

Metaphysical Schools, Robert says:

Its like everything else. Some online courses are good, some are not. Be discerning. Ask for references, check everything, etc. I

know some people who have done college degrees in metaphysics and etc. These seem to be a mixture of philosophy and religion and

occult beliefs. But I don't think these would be much help in getting employment. They might help to get a publisher, if you plan to

write in the newage field. All learning is beneficial in some way. But knowledge of metaphysics and etc that is learned from books and

courses is not very useful in a real sense, not unless one has the wisdom to 'practice' these things, to not only study but to practice and

do the training. Then you will have knowlege and experience. To write effectively in this field, you cannot beat personal hands on

Robert Bruce

On Esoteric Schools, Robert says:

Most Western schools use versions of Hermetics and other ancient schools of practice. These methods are generally more

difficult than most newage type practices, but they are also generally more effective. Long term effort and energy = results.

Simulation- An area of the astral, or an area between one plane and the next, dedicated to learning, designed to help the projector get used to the next level of experience. Dreamstate lessons, for example, are an example of simulations. Projections that happen in one plane but have characteristics of the next plane can be considered 'simulations'. Term coined or made popular by Kurt Leland.


(Simulations) "are like exercise machines designed to isolate and work out a particular muscle. But there’s no hard and fast rule about the order in which you do the machines in the circuit, so to speak."

Mind Split Effect:



A stone is an energy structure that includes the chakra and storage center. When chakras and storage centers are stimulated and energy is raised/stored, the energy develops around the area and forms a stone. There are three stones born to a human, and a fourth can be developed over the moon (head) stone.

The red male tan tien also called the earth stone is at the base of the spine and surrounds the red and orange chakral areas . It stores sexual and generative energy called ching .

The yellow sun dan tien also called the sun stone is at the solar plexus surrounding the yellow and green chakral areas . It stores vital essence called chi .

The Blue female tan tien or moon stone is at the head and surrounds the blue and indigo chakral areas. It stores psyhic energy called shen .

Triune Brain

"The triune brain is a model proposed by Paul D. MacLean to explain the function of traces of evolution existing in the structure of the human brain. In this model, the brain is broken down into three separate brains that have their own special intelligence, subjectivity, sense of time and space, and memory[1]. The triune brain consists of the R-complex, the limbic system, and the neocortex."


R-complex: "Reptilian Brain", includes the brain stem and cerebellum; Survival instincts.
Limbic System:"Old Mammalian Brain": Amygdala, the hypothalamus, and the hippocampus. More complex emotions. It can't function entirely on its own. It needs to interact with the neocortex to process emotions.
Neocortex: "New Mammal Brain": Controls higher-order thinking skills, reason and speech.
