astral projecting

The ability to astral project is something which every person already possesses; we are in fact born being able to do this. So why are there those who can astral project at will and those who have much less success with the technique? The answer is simple practice.

Astral projection is a technique with a long pedigree, just as that possessed by yoga and meditation.

Astral projection is known by a lot of different names and there are several ways which you can astral project.

One of these methods is lucid dreaming.

This is something you probably already know something about. This, of course is when you are able to control your dreams because you are conscious and in full control of your faculties in the dream. You can begin lucid dreaming by telling yourself “I am dreaming” while you are in a dream.

Doing this lets you take the reins in your dreams but it takes a while to master this, making it not the best way for beginners to astral project.

You need to know that astral projection is real. You should also know that you have astral projected already, you simply were not aware that is what had happened.

Have you awakened from a dream still fresh in your mind, which seems as though you really lived the experience? These dreams are an actual experience of astral projection.

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.

By practicing relaxation techniques including meditation, you can prepare yourself to astral project. Meditation is perhaps the most effective technique to prepare yourself to astral project. The important thing is finding a meditation technique which allows you to become completely relaxed.

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.

Focus on breathing in through the nose and letting the airflow out through your mouth. You are breathing slower and deeper and getting more relaxed, now focus on relaxing your body.

Starting from your toes and working your way up, relax each part of your body. You can do this by gently tensing, then relaxing each part as you work towards your head or simply focus on relaxing each part as you exhale.

You’ll begin to feel heavy and limp as you release all of the tension and negative energy. After you have relaxed your entire body, then it’s time to move on to the next step in starting to astral project.

By now, you’ll be so relaxed that you might be ready to doze off. However, you must not do this. Stay focused by repeating a phrase to yourself. You can repeat anything you want as your mantra. You could even use ‘Dubuque, Iowa’. All that matters is that it works for you.

The mind tends to get bored when it is not doing anything, which can mean that it will drift and find something else to focus on. You don’t want that to happen. If the mind wanders then you need to quit the session. To help bring the mind back repeat your phrase.

In order to astral project, you’ll need to reach an altered mental state. This can be done by simply repeating your phrase. You can also use the “body of light” technique, which many practitioners find to be helpful. In this technique, you need to visualize your body transforming into a body of light.

You will experience three separate feelings when your astral body is projecting. You will have the sensation that you are moving. You will see lights and colors before your eyes even though they are closed. At this point, your astral body is going into the astral world.

Voices will tell you to go on and encourage you or tell you to stop now as a warning. When you hear these voices, it means you have succeeded in astral projecting.
