tips for astral projection

Each and every human being is born with the ability to astral project. The only difference between those who can astral project at will and those who cannot is practice.

The practice of astral projection has a very long history, just like meditation and yoga. There are many different names by which astral projection is known and many ways that you can astral project.

Lucid dreaming is one type of astral projecting. Lucid dreaming is of course when we are conscious of our dreaming this is actually astral projecting. In order to lucid dream, all you need to do is to tell yourself ‘I am dreaming’ while in the 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.

Astral projection is something you have done before, although you may not realize that you have done so.

Have you ever awoken from a particularly vivid dream remembering every detail? You were not dreaming this you were astral projecting.

To get started, you have to know that you can astral project. Since all of us have this ability already, all you have to do is to clear the doubts from your mind and begin trying 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.

If you are wondering where to begin when it comes to meditation, try sitting in a comfortable chair in a peaceful place. When you are relaxed, clear your mind, if stress or work pops into your head, push it out and focus on nothing.

Eliminate all of the worries and negative thoughts and feel yourself relaxing. Focus on your breathing. Take slow, deep breaths; inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.

As you become closer and closer to the state where you can astral project, keep focusing on your breathing.

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 towards your head, beginning from the toes and relaxing every part of your body one by one as you go. There are two techniques which work very well here. The first is to visualize each part of your body relaxing as you move upwards, telling yourself as you go that each part is relaxing.

You can also tense each part of your body as you go and then breathe out that tension as you exhale. Once you are totally relaxed you are ready for the next stage of successfully managing to astral project.

Your body and your mind will be completely relaxed and it would be very easy to fall asleep, but don’t! To stay alert, you can repeat a phrase to yourself. It doesn’t matter what this phrase is it could be as simple as ‘walk the dog, walk the dog’.

This works because the mind will wander when given nothing else to do and your focus and relaxation will be ruined. If you lose focus, you’ll have to start all over again. Keep repeating your phrase to stay on track as you prepare to astral project.

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’ll hear voices urging you either to continue or to stop what you are doing this is a surefire sign that you have managed to astral project.
