Everyone has the ability to astral project. There are those who astral project daily and those who rarely astral project, at least intentionally the difference between the two is practice.

Just like yoga and meditation, astral projection has a very long history. People have called astral projection by many different names over the centuries and there are also many different techniques which can help you to astral project.

The initial level of astral projection is lucid dreaming. This type of dreaming is dreaming consciously and is known as the first phase of astral projection. By telling yourself ‘I am dreaming’, the simplest form of projection can be achieved.

With lucid dreaming, you are in control of your dreams and actually, you are astral projecting! However, becoming an expert at this can take a little time so it is not the best way to go for those just learning to astral project.

Those who practice astral projection believe that it is very real and that most people have done it without even realizing it.

Think of those times when you awoke from a dream able to remember every detail down to the smallest things. In these cases, what you were doing was astral projecting, not dreaming! We’ve all had this experience before and this is one of the ways that we astral project.

The first step to astral projection is having the knowledge that you can do it. Affirm to yourself that you can do this; this will clear away all of the doubt which prevents you from being able to astral project.

Practicing meditation and other relaxation methods can get your mind and body prepared to astral project. Meditation is the best relaxation technique for those looking to astral project. The key is to find a regular meditation regimen that helps you to relax.

You should do your meditation in a quiet room where you have a comfortable place to sit and will not be interrupted or distracted. Start freeing your mind of worry and tension. You can’t astral project when you have these negative energies in your mind.

Begin to eliminate all thoughts from your mind and focus on your breathing. You want to take deep, slow breaths in thorough your nose, out through your mouth. If you can remain focused on your breathing, you’ll begin to feel yourself relaxing.

The next step is to go into an altered conscious state. Keep focusing on your breathing, your problems are gone, your mind is blank.

The breaths you take should come from deep down inside. As your breathing slows down, focus more and more on relaxing your body.

Work your way up from toes to head, relaxing each part of your body as you go.

There are two ways that you can do this. You can visualize each part of your body relaxing as you go, telling yourself they are relaxing as you do so. You can also tense, then release each part of your body, feeling this tension leaving your body as you exhale.

You will begin to feel heavy, as if all your energy and stress is going away as you relax each part of your body. You will notice when this happens. Once this occurs in your entire body, you are ready to move on to the next step in astral projection.

At this point, you are completely ready and prepared for sleep, but it is important to stay alert during this time. Many practicing projectors come up with a phrase such as ‘I can fly, I can fly’ there is no wrong phrase, so you can come up with your own.

If you begin to get bored as the mind tends to do when it has nothing to focus on, you may have to reel it back in. If you are stuck in this rut, either end the session or use your phrase to bring your mind back into focus.

There are different ways to achieve a state of altered consciousness. You can repeat your chosen phrase or do it another way. Imagine a glowing light, and then imagine you entering it and transforming yourself into this body of light. This is referred to as the body of light technique.

As you start to astral project, there are three signs which you can watch for to know that you are doing so successfully. The first is a sensation of motion, even though your physical body is perfectly still. The second is ‘seeing’ color and light, even though your eyes will be closed.

Finally, you will hear voices which will either tell you to stop or encourage you to continue. Once you hear these voices, you’ll know that you have begun to astral project.
