Astral Tips Part 5: (Shadow People/Locust Men)

Picture this: A being of unknown origin feeds off your energy source while you’re trying to astral project.  Is this the tales of nightmares, or something more?  I’ve had run-ins with beings, and even with shadow entities that have shown an attraction to my energy levels… from my research, interviews, and personal experiences… I have come to an understanding of what mainstream culture deems as “Shadow People” or “Shadow Beings”.

I agree with some assessments that surround the lore of the astral realm but will leave that analysis and theories for the upcoming documentary “Locust Men” which is produced by Project Astral.  Locust Men examines the true intentions of the “shadow beings” and how they differ within the astral realm.

If you encounter a shadow being during your astral travels, or dream sequences, do not panic; the aura of these beings are utilizing your fear to manifest themselves – you should exit your astral session and close-off any portals of meditation for a short duration of time (stay within the physical realm) and then try again.  Want to know more about overcoming this roadblock to astral traveling?


If your encounters are frequent, you must meditate and raise your vibrations to a higher realm.  Attempting to astral project without proper research & energy is the equivalent of trying to ride a bike without prior experience; you’ll keep falling… instead, frustration overtakes.

While astral projecting, you should have a safety net.  This includes TWO STEPS.

1. Alarm

Set your alarm to envision the amount of time you wish to travel.  The time within the astral realm seems longer than the actual presence.

2. Object/Light

Envision an object in the room you’re projecting from.  This can be anything from a chair, a piece of jewelry, or a light source you envision to protect yourself. Surround yourself with a light force, projecting an aura.

Makaveli The Mystic Part 1: (Symbolism of Tupac Shakur; Books he read in prison)


Want exclusive Tupac articles, videos, and investigations?  Updated weekly on our Patreon.


The aura that surrounds Tupac Shakur’s life and death grows stronger with each passing year.  New theories and old theories of him faking his death continue to be supported while 2017 marked his induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.  Tupac’s posthumously legacy shows no signs of slowing down.  Although much is known about his public life through videos, interviews, and music; his interest in the occult and the astral realm is a little-known fact of history.

Incarcerated from February 14, 1995, until October 12, 1995, Tupac engulfed himself into a literary retreat of the senses.  A list of the books he read at the Clinton Correctional Facility famously made it’s way around the internet in the early 2000’s.  We’ve researched nine books that led Tupac into the white light and influenced quotes such as “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” and “Let’s go inside my astral plane.”



“Initiation” by Elisabeth Haich was probably one of the first books Tupac read on the occult.  Initiation is a mystical-telling of Haich’s former lives, including her incarnation into the daughter of Pharaoh Athois.  It details how the future is relayed via consciousness as dreams; this is a beginning stage of controlling/altering your fate.  The book will open your eyes into the depths of reincarnation.


Ponder on This” is a compilation of Alice Bailey’s teachings; it acts as an encyclopedia of mystical tools and prepares you for “Initiation,” a spiritual development that you enter upon birth.  Astral Projection is mentioned as a concept that is vital for Initiation; one must learn to see through the fog and illusion, stabilizing their etheric bodies with the vibrations on the plane.


The Destiny of the Nations” is another piece of Alice Bailey’s work.  World dominions are at an ever-changing realm; this and the fate of each nation relies on energy masses and consciousness of its people.  This book examines the inner-depths of social interaction.


Serving Humanity” is Alice Bailey’s concept within “soul contact” and the utilization of the personality on the physical plane of existence.  Telepathy, Illumination, and Control of Speech are a few of the topics covered in the literature.


Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle” is the last book of Alice Bailey’s that appears on the list.  The essence of mental energy and communication is the key dynamic to the book.  A “flow” of energy is discussed and correlates with connecting to the overall system of energy fields for the world.


“The Meaning of Masonry”  by W.L. Wilmshurst describes the inner workings of Free Masonry and the symbolism that incorporates the ancient mysteries of Egypt.   The book opens in one passage with this line “The papers here collected are written solely for members of the Masonic Order.”


Gershom Scholem’s book “Kabbalah” is considered one of the blueprints of Jewish mysticism.  The Torah and the hidden symbology within the text are interpreted and projected into a higher understanding of GOD.


Mysticism” written by Evelyn Underhill acts as an introduction into the manifestation of energy as it pertains to the mystic arts.  This would’ve been the centerpiece for Tupac in regards to magic. 


The Tibetan Book of the Dead” is what more than likely influenced Tupac’s belief in “Only fear of death is comin’ back reincarnated” as it deals with life-after-death scenario and how we perceive this experience.  The line was first used by Evil Mind Gangstas on their 1993 song “Livin On The Edge” and also featured on the OG recording “Reincarnation” along with Hussein Fatal and other Outlawz members.  The quote gained mainstream status with the release of “Only Fear of Death” on the 1997 album “R U Still Down? (Remember Me)”.  The three Bardo realms of the afterlife are “Bardo of Death,” “Bardo of reality,” and, the “Bardo of rebirth.”  


The majority of the books listed are written by New Age writer Alice Bailey and were transmitted to her by the Tibetan Ascended Master Djwal Khul.  This is significant for many reasons.  Bailey’s work correlates along the line of the white magic (right-hand) path; most of her teachings deal with the evolution of karma and the final mastering of the astral plane.  To master or achieve a “higher” realm you need to have an understanding of the “lower” realms and when to embrace it and when to look beyond the vibrations that you’ll encounter. 

Alice Bailey’s teachings are on Theosophy (mystical and occult texts) and embrace a path to enlightenment.  As you can see from the list of books Tupac read, he had no literature on Aleister Crowley and the new age religion “Thelema.”  Thelema is based on “The Book of the Law,” the law is “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.  Love is the law, love under will.”  This focuses more on the individual spiritual path and the use of magick in different forms.

Spirituality captures the imagination of not only your inner-self but the self that surrounds you.  There exists techniques that many consider controversial or even witchcraft… the left-handed path & the right-handed path depending on usage.  Two examples of this would be Madame Blavatsky’s “The Secret Doctrine” as it holds a right-hand atmosphere to the readers.  The opposite of this would be Aleister Crowley’s “The Book of the Law” which deals with the aspect of the left-hand.  In reality, how you perform the white or black magic and for what use determines the Good or Evil concept.

The Right-Hand Path deals with concepts of the body, spirit & mind.  Karma is also present.  This would be associated with ‘finding yourself’ through meditation and white light. 

Tupac and Alice Bailey’s spiritual guide Master DK.


The Left-Hand Path dives into the use of Satanic imagery, sex magic & other taboo methods of rituals.  Many musicians and artists have adapted to this path as it symbolizes and showcases the use of magic (in the open). 

Pictured below is Jay Z with Crowley’s law “Do What Thou Wilt” next to a picture of Crowley.


Here is the famous Beatles cover “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”.  Crowley is included.


According to Alice Bailey: The White Magician has the motivation that will benefit the group he surrounds himself with/has contact with.  The Black Magician works alone, and if he works within a group, his/her purpose is shrouded with a selfish ego.  The White Magician works for the balance of the universe.  The Black Magician works for no one and represents no unity.  The Left-hand path will always assume supreme power on the physical and astral realms; this is because Black Magicians crave exposure within their rituals of magick.  The Right-hand path evolves, it does not believe in using magick for ‘selfish’ reasons as induced by the Left.

Papa Legba is a spirit in Haitian Vodou whose job is to act as a “channel” between the living and the dead.  In folklore, he’s presented as an old man with a cane.  Updated versions depict him as young and energetic.  The cane represents the connection to the fertility of the earth.  To salute Papa Legba, a follower will present three knocks to ask him to open the door of the unknown.  The colors he wears are red and black or white and black.  In Tupac’s music video “Made Ni**az” Papa Legba makes multiple appearances.  Below is a scene that symbolizes Papa Legba.

Red/White and Black are presented on his jacket.  Three knocks close the ceremony of the music video.




The same footage can be seen in the “Hit ‘Em Up” music video.


Also, the “I Wonder if Heaven Got A Ghetto” video was specifically designed by the director Lionel C. Martin to leave the door open to theories revolving around if Tupac was still alive.  Tupac arrives at RUKAHS, New Mexico on a helicopter where nuns take care of him.  There’s a scene where Tupac gets on a bus, and along the ride, different musicians and revolutionaries get on such as…  Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, Huey Newton, Martin Luther King, but who is the mysterious guy in the very back?










This looks identical to the mystic Grigori Rasputin.  He is widely known for the various assassination attempts on his life, most of these attempts all took place in a period of one night in December of 1916.  He was poisoned, shot, beaten, strangled and survived each encounter but finally, his conspirators tied him in a rug and tossed him into an icy river.  Rasputin broke out of the bondage and attempted to swim until he succumbed to the cold.


If you look hard enough, mysticism is a foundation of Tupac’s work.   And Tupac wasn’t the only Outlaw to make a song about astral projection.

What is astral projection and sleep paralysis?

What is astral projection?

Astral Projection is a form of O.B.E. (OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE) which can be involuntary or voluntary, depending on the usage and circumstances.  It’s a “floating” sensation that you utilize to navigate different realms via an astral body.  Astral travel is mentioned in all religious scriptures (Bible, Quran, Torah) and entered mainstream society through the Theosophy (New Age Movement) and modern-day spiritualists. 

A silver cord is a common occurrence in astral travel, as stated in the Jewish Bible:

Before the silver cord snaps, and the golden fountain is shattered, and the pitcher breaks at the fountain, and the wheel falls shattered into the pit. And the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God, Who gave it” 

The cord acts as a pathway between your physical and spiritual body.  The cord cannot be affected in the astral realm and can only be severed if you die in the physical world.


Sleep paralysis is an experience encountered while in the beginning stages of the REM (Rapid-Eye-Movement) sleep or during the awakening process.  The subject is acutely aware of the surroundings meanwhile their body is paralyzed, and a demon, monster or shadow presence often appears.  This is a terrifying disorder that can affect anyone.

“The Nightmare” painting by Henry Fuseli


Astral Projection has similar traits to sleep paralysis but isn’t a frightening experience if you know how to navigate your journey.  Astral Travel or an Out of Body Experience (O.B.E.) takes place when you leave your body via the use of your Etheric body (Astral Body).  Telepathy or natural causes such as Near Death Experiences (N.D.E.) can induce astral projection.  Some individuals also have interactions with a shadow or divine being in the astral form; this is used as a deterrent to keep you from entering another realm.

There is much controversy within individual communities about the usage of astral projection.  An involuntary projection related to an N.D.E. Or traumatic experience is considered to be in a spiritual sense and not occult.  A voluntary projection refers to occult practices and so on.  These theories (in my opinion) has no apparent standing in a pure essence of astral projection, you should judge for yourself based on your experiences.


The Bible on astral projection:

Deuteronomy 18:10-13

There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God,

2 Corinthians 12:1-4

I must go on boasting. Though there is nothing to be gained by it, I will go on to visions and revelations of the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows. And I know that this man was caught up into paradise—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows— and he heard things that cannot be told, which man may not utter.

According to the Islam and the Quran, tajarrod is only acceptable.  This means to have all faith and belief in Allah and no other sources, similar to Deuteronomy 18:10-13 in the Bible.  Astral practices and fortune telling devices such as ephods are prohibited by Judaism and the Masoretic Text of the Torah.  The three major religions each have a mystic sect.  Buddhist and Hinduism embrace meditation and a free flow of consciousness; thus their doctrines speak more openly within the context of astral travel.


Sufism interprets Muhammad’s night journey “Isra and Mi’raj” as the use of astral projection and that Muhammad’s body did not physically ascend to Allah and that his astral body did instead.  This differs from traditional Islamic texts and practices.


Kabbalah as deep roots in Jewish mysticism, the obscure book “Sefer Yetzirah” is said to have origins with patriarch Abraham.  The Sefer Yetzirah has influenced countless mystics that contribute it powers to alchemical texts and astral projection.

Christianity/Christian Mysticism

Christian Mysticism derives from books such as “Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz” and has origins within the “Rosicrucian Order of the Rose Cross.”

I began to notice my connection to astral projection at an early age; sleep paralysis would become a nightly ritual, I became engulfed in a strange world that I couldn’t control.  Sleep paralysis is an experience encountered while in the beginning stages of the REM (Rapid-Eye-Movement) sleep or during the awakening process.  The subject is acutely aware of the surroundings meanwhile their body is paralyzed, and a demon, monster or shadow presence often appears.

Astral Projection has similar traits to sleep paralysis but isn’t a frightening experience if you know how to navigate your journey.  Astral Travel or an Out of Body Experience (O.B.E.) takes place when you leave your body via the use of telepathy or due to natural causes such as Near Death Experiences (N.D.E.).  Some individuals also have interactions with a shadow or celestial being in the astral form; this is used as a deterrent to keep you from entering another realm.

‘Astral Projection’ experiment leads to murder for Indian man

In a twist of the script from our usual astral projection news, we are reporting on a murder that took place April 11th, 2017 in India that involves the use of an astral projection experiment gone wrong.  The suspect, 30-year-old Cadell Raja murdered his family in an attempt to “free them from their physical bodies”.  He stabbed the victims and then chopped and burn portions of the corpses.  Cadell had recently become obsessed with astral projection while overseas in Australia for school.


Once apprehended, Cadell confessed to the crimes, contributed the full act of violence to astral projection and showed no remorse.  Psychologists were brought in to examine the details of the case and Cadell’s actions on the day of the slayings.  He has been diagnosed with Bi-Polar Disorder in the past.

As reported on Hindustantimes.com

Raja takes pride in claiming that he has ‘freed’ his relatives. Completely unrepentant, he cites weird philosophy to justify his deeds and – at times – contradicts himself,” said a senior officer investigating the case.

What could drive a person to act out a physical extraction of the soul in an attempt at astral projection?  This sounds like a scene out of Psychic Killer or The Astral Factor.

Hussein Fatal (Bruce Washington) was a soldier within the Thug Life movement and a member of one of the best-selling rap groups of all-time. Hussein joined Tupac’sOutlawz Immortalz” and was featured on Tupac’s two-disc masterpiece “All Eyez on Me” in 1996 and continued to be a constant voice on the OG recordings of the 90’s.  Hussein Fatal’s verse in “Hit ‘Em Up” demonstrates his lyrical ability in the war of words.

Get out the way, yo, get out the way, yo
Biggie Smalls just got dropped
Little Moo’ pass the MAC and let me hit him in his back
Frank White needs to get spanked right for setting traps
Little accident-murderer, and I ain’t never heard of ya
Poisonous gats attack when I’m serving ya
Spank you, shank your whole style when I gank
Guard your rank cause I’ma slam your ass in the paint
Puffy weaker than the fuckin’ block I’m running through, ni**a
And I’m smoking Junior M.A.F.I.A. in front of you, ni**a
With the ready power
Tucked in my Guess under my Eddie Bauer
Your clout petty/sour, I push packages every hour
I hit ’em up

He released several solo albums that were met with positive reviews and collaborated with Ja-Rule in the early 2000’s during Murder Inc’s beef with G-Unit.  He rejoined The Outlawz in 2010 after a hiatus from music; this reunited him with fellow members Young Noble & E.D.I. Mean.  On all of Tupac’s OG recordings and studio albums, Hussein Fatal appears in the verse following Pac’s.

Along with music, Hussein maintained a healthy lifestyle and had a passion for his family, fitness, and acting.  In 2012 a song and film (Sleeping with Angels) based on astral projection was established with Press Graye & Hussein Fatal; “Sleeping with Angels” appeared on Hussein’s studio album “The Interview: It’s Not a Gimmick 2 Me” and was released on Youtube in 2013.  Hussein projected his life & soul into the essence of his music and he is our TIME MACHINE POET OF THE WEEK.
