the art of astral projection

There are millions of people who believe that astral projection is real and that anyone can, and have, achieved this altered state. The key to this projection is practice and that is all it takes to astral project.

The art of astral projection is ancient in the same way as yoga or meditation and deserves respect. It is known by many different names and types. There are also various ways to accomplish astral projection.

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.

Saying this key phrase ‘I am dreaming’ over and over again, allows you to wake up in your dream and do anything you desire. This may take time to learn and can be difficult, so don’t be discouraged.

You need to believe that astral projection does work and is a reality. You have already experienced it but you do not realize it.

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

All you need to do to get started is to know that you have the ability to astral project. Each and every one of us can do this; the next step is to begin clearing all of the doubts from your mind which can keep 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.

One simple way to meditate is sitting in a comfortable spot in a quiet room free of distractions.

Get comfortable and clear your mind of all thoughts.

Pay attention to your breathing, take slow deep breathes. Imagine all your troubles leaving your body when you breathe out. This will put you in a deeply relaxed state that will enable you to astral project.

Breathe slowly, taking deep breaths in through your mouth and exhaling through your mouth.

Your breaths should grow slower and deeper as you move your focus to relaxing your body.

The next step is to totally relax your body, starting from the ground up. Tense each part of the body then relax it, as you exhale to relax, repeat ‘my toes are relaxing, and I am relaxing too.’

The best way to describe what you are going to feel is ‘heavy’ it is going to feel as though all of the energy and tension is slipping away from each part of your body. You will know it when it happens. Once you have relaxed each part of your body it is time for you to move to the next step that is going to help you astral project.

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.

Boredom tends to set in when the mind is not stimulated, so you may find yourself losing focus.

If you find yourself doing this, stop the session or to help bring your mind back into focus, continue to 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.

There are three things which you should look out for which will let you know that you have managed to astral project. First, you’ll feel as if you are moving – this is your astral body starting to depart on your journey. Next, you’ll see light and colors even though you’ll have your eyes closed.

Finally, you will hear voices that are going to be telling you to either stop what you are doing or encouraging you to continue. When you get to that third part you have successfully astral projected.
