Practical Astral Travel Information

Dejavu, waking premonitions, a feeling you have been here before can all be attributed to Astral Travel. How can that be? Practitioners tell us that these feelings are not clairvoyant at all, we actually have been there before. We have seen or experienced this place and time, but simply in the Astral Plane and Astral Realms.

Astral Travel or Astral Projection can be induced consciously and purposely but most of us, it’s believed, do it in our sleep without even knowing it. What happens is essentially that your spiritual self, all that makes up your being without the physicality of your body, essentially projects into another realm or dimension to travel to any place, time or dimension that you choose.

Your Astral Self is known as many different things. The Astral body, Astral vehicle or super-sensible body, but whatever you wish to call it, it’s the part of us that is able to navigate the astral realms and explore new experiences while our physical body rests and remains on earth.

Some practitioners believe that we actually separate from ourselves while others believe that your astral self is more like a remote lenses or vehicle that merely communicates back to our mind. Regardless of which theory one subscribes to, and it doesn’t really matter,

Practitioners tell us that the Astral Self can do many things that our human body’s cannot.

For example, through astral projection, one is able to explore the galaxy, the planets, the stars and the sky. The Astral body can easily travel great distances in a blink of eye and visit far off places as easily as visiting next door.

Astral Travelers Inform us that some people fly all over the planet. Others simply leave their bodies and float over them observing from a different vantage point, still others travel to past and future realities observing events from another time.

Experts that practice regularly say that Astral travel is completely safe and holds no possibility of harm. One’s astral self can pass through walls and barriers, the very earth itself and travel virtually anywhere one can think of. Conversely and logically with this ability comes the absolute inability to affect any change from ones astral body. Essentially we can watch and observe but can’t change anything.

This makes sense if you think of this as an opportunity to learn about ones self and the world and people around us. Astral travel exists to allow us to grow and learn. It’s gives us an opportunity to have experiences that we may not otherwise be able to share in.

Astral Travel Information is everywhere and Astral Travel can by practiced by anyone. It’s believed that it is a skill that we are all born with, but have simply not cultivated along the way, due to our busy, noisy lives. With practice, some meditation and calm influences, anyone can learn astral travel and projection.

Essential Australia Travel Information

Most people don’t know just how different things can be to travel to another country. From the currency to which sports are most popular, you will find that things are very different when you travel. To help make it less of a shock for you, here is some essential Australia travel information so you know a bit about what to expect.

If you are thinking about bringing any electronics with you, you should know that the electrical outlets in Australia are very different from North America. If you have a cell phone or laptop computer that you will need to plug in while you are here, you will need to purchase an adapter before you go. These adapters can be difficult to find once you get there. Make sure you buy one and don’t forget to pack it!

You will find that money in Australia is quite different as well. The exchange rate will be in your favour if you live in the USA, as Australian dollars are worth less. One interesting thing you will notice about Australian paper money is the fact that it is made of plastic. Australia is the first country in the world to print plastic money, and the change occurred between 1992 and 1996.

One interesting bit of Australia travel information is that tipping at restaurants is not normal in Australia. When eating at restaurants, you should not feel obligated to give a tip. It is, of course, appreciated if you do, but it is not expected in the least.

This is some of the most interesting Australia travel information that is important to know if you are planning a trip there. Make sure that you bring home some of their plastic money as a souvenir when you go home, as you will not likely see it again soon.

Holidays and Travel – Why Are Singles Being Ripped Off?

Holidays and short breaks, hotels and travel are notorious for institutionalised acts of discrimination against the undeserving: Singles are often penalised for not having a partner. As if being a wallflower is not bad enough some hotels load the bill when singles check in at reception.

Before I check in I check out and here’s the rub. A London hotel for a two night package charges £235 per person. If you are travelling alone you need to add £90 more than the guy next door who brought ‘a friend’ along. The Royal Garden Hotel adds £100 to the single’s bill and is far from being alone. It is common practice.

Hotels respond to criticism by claiming they lose the charge on the partner’s bill. It makes sense then to book a hotel that charges by the room rather than by the person. Either that or bring along a friend. Hotels that charge extra for singles might be a little more ethical if the extra fee was levied only when the hotel is fully booked and they are turning couples away.

Pick a Partner

My cheeky suggestion that they put aside a reception area where singles can relax, chat up and choose someone to share their room with was not well received. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea after all.

The same applies for those who fancy a sea cruise. My eyes lit up when I spotted a three-night Norwegian cruise for a paltry £99. Rubbing my hands in expectation, I looked forward to exploring the fjords by day and propping up the bars at night. It was then that the penny dropped; lots of them. The fare was based on two sharing a two-berth cabin.

As we move into the third millennium’s second decade one of the biggest spending consumer groups are the singles. In the holiday trade there are web-based tour operators whose modus operandi is to target the singles. This makes subsequent socialising legitimate: No one is going to be offended if Sally is chatted up or Jeanette flutters her eyelashes at Gareth as their single status can be presumed.

For singles this is far preferable to going on an ordinary package tour. Who wants to be Billy-no-mates in the restaurant or worse, fall in love with someone else’s spouse or partner? It rather spoils the holiday for everyone.

Exotic Locations

I scour the specialist tour operators’ websites who want singles to join them on trips to exotic locations, seductive surroundings; perfect settings for a holiday of which more than memories might last a lifetime. With considerable panache I conduct a search through the appropriately named worldwide web.

Whoa! Singles! Have Fun. Meet new Friends! Great Deals £895 for 7-nights skiing? Look at that price again! That is budget? Anyway who needs white snow when you can have white sandy beaches with palm trees? Grenada seems to tick all the right boxes for carefree philanders like me. Sure there are a few spa and gym temptations thrown in but £1,899 for seven nights? Maybe to compensate I will find someone rich and famous to chat with in the restaurant or bars: a premier division football player, a movie star, or top model? I am beginning to cotton on.

Are these solo holidays strategically located, imaginatively planned and priced to provide an opportunity for single ladies seeking a supra-rich boyfriend; maybe James Bond? After all, at £2,000 for a seven day break in the Bahamas one is unlikely to be rubbing shoulders with the crowd that frequent the local bistros and bars.

Gold Digging Vampires

This might then be the ideal opportunity for me to meet an upwardly mobile model, a gold-digging vamp, or a celebrity wannabe willing to invest a night in fame and fortune? However the thought of explaining across the breakfast table that my runabout is a fifteen year old shopping trolley and I am an under-resourced hack pours cold water on that scheme-dream. I have no wish to have a bowl of cornflakes emptied over my lap after a night of unbridled debauchery.

I discover a tour company specialising in singles holidays which seemed more reasonable. This one was going to set me back £235 for a week hamming up the bon vivant in Tenerife. Ever the restless traveller I moved on further to a rival company. I gulped: £500 plus for a week’s stay in Turkey did not strike me as competitive. That is until I checked out solo.com; they offer 4 nights in Salzburg for £829 or a 4-night winter break in Italy for £429.

Clearly singles are being charged double with bells on. It was as clear as Bahamian waters that holidays exclusively tailored for singles translates into high price vacations. Possibly the thinking behind it is that singles, most of them without dependents, have plenty of disposable income. The obvious solution was to find a partner as two travellers can obviously travel far cheaper than one. Is there anyone out there?
