Sounds that way. I don't think you are likly to get this result if you get the solid basics and progress slowly. Qi Gong/Alchemy should boost mental defences and Shen still if you where low and depressed on starting or got things very wrong wile putting in a lot of hours you could have some odd experiences.
Still I have heard of odd things happening to and around Qi Gong practitioners or deep mediators and even had a few minor things my self but really its all about judgement and gradual progression.
If your down or have missed a lot of sleep/drink to much or have an obsession your not going to be in a good place wile you are in effect messing with your own programming and balance. Location can also play a part in my experiences. I lived in a house at Uni and in one room for a year I had terrible dreams and waking visions as I woke up, the next year in another room of the same house nothing at all even though I was training the same stuff more. There may or may not be spiritual beings to catch the unwary (I tend to thing there are and if you read "Esoteric Warriors" by Kozma there is a story by a Christian Silate guy) but the root of the problem most likly rushing a head full on without the knowledge or a teacher.
Train with a book but why rush things. Its like learning kung fu from books and DVD's, take it very slow and see if you can get people who know about it to give you some input. If you rush ahead you will just be training bad habits. I am all for Jesus and I don't think he wanted us to ignore our potential. Plenty of suggestion he was into esoteric practice given some of the things he is supposed to have said and done like fasting.
It is a shame to hear a guy scared of by unbalancing his mind but it sounds like he went all out without the foundation and with a huge wish to have far out stuff happen to him. This is not what most people do. Getting involved in meditation/Qi gong for super powers is some what missing the point. Astro projecting/lucid dreaming is going to throw up a huge bunch of weird dreams. They are more than likly just dreams.
He who speaks of the Dao knows not what it is lol goes for us all more likly than not.
Still I don't think he is a troll just a guy with some "True Legend" style over/poor training. Still he is welcome to his point of view and perceptions.
