out of body experiences

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.

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.

One of these techniques is lucid dreaming, something which is very familiar to most of us. Lucid dreaming is the ability to become conscious within a dream and take control of the happenings within it. All you need to do to begin lucid dreaming is to tell yourself “I am dreaming” while you are in a dream.

When you do this you will wake up within your dream and you will be free to do what you want in the dream. For beginners this can be too random a practice to successfully astral project.

Even if you are unaware of having done so, you have astral projected before.

One example is the dreams which you may wake up from remembering each and every detail. These were actually experiences of astral projection.

It is very important to have confidence that you can astral project. This will ensure you have a better chance of being successful at having an astral projection experience.

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.

To begin meditation, sit in a quiet, peaceful room in a comfy chair, make sure that there are no distractions. As you become relaxed, clear your mind of all stress and day to day problems.

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.

You then have to be reach an altered state of consciousness. You can simply continue to work on your breathing, your focus now is not going to be to get rid of the stresses, it is to truly focus on the way you are breathing, your head is clear.

The breaths that you are taking should be deep, coming in through the nose and going out of the mouth. As your breathing is slowing and deepening you need to focus on your relaxing on 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.

As the tension and negative energies leave your body, you’ll start to feel heavy and deeply relaxed. Once you have finished relaxing your body, you’re ready to move on to the next step.

You will want to go to sleep by now, but do not do that. Find a way to stay alert. Try repeating a command as some experts recommend such as ‘I’m flying, I’m flying.’ It does not matter what it is, just something to keep you alert enough to avoid falling asleep.

Our minds tend to wander when they are unoccupied. A wandering mind is not conducive to begin able to astral project, so keep repeating your phrase and stay focused.

Now, there are a couple of methods that can be employed to reach altered consciousness. You can use your repetitive statement to reach the altered state of consciousness. You can also use the body of light method, which is where you envision a body of light that you are going to see yourself transform into.

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.

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.
