out of body practice

Generally speaking, the majority of people have at one point in their life heard the term ‘astral projection.’ This could’ve been from an enlightened friend, a book or a movie.

However, astral projection isn’t something which only happens in fictional entertainment it’s very real and it is something which every man and woman has the capacity to do. You have almost certainly done it yourself, though you may not have known that this is what you were doing.

First we need to understand what astral projection really is. Simply put, astral projection is the ability a person has to leave their body. This is an ability that every person has, and that every person does when they go to sleep at night.

While we sleep, our physical body is at rest, the subconscious mind then takes control. While this is going on an individual is astral projecting, although for the most part, they will not remember doing so.

When you do project you get to go wherever you want. As you remember when you were a child, you probably can recall doing this as you went to bed, as you grew up you have forgotten it though. You have limitless possibilities of places to go, there are no restrictions as far as distance or time where astral projection is concerned. When you are sleeping your physical body is at sleep, while the astral body goes on a journey.

You probably want to know what your astral body is it’s an invisible duplicate of your physical body which is made of our emotions and our desires. Your astral body will always return to your physical body the two are connected by a silver cord.

The silver cord first connects as the astral body enters the physical body. This is not exhausted until after death when the astral body leaves the physical body for the last time. This silver cord prevents the astral body from not returning.

Often times the question of where the astral body actually travels will come up with discussing astral projection. The astral plane is the realm of the astral body and it is through this plane, which consists of many levels that the astral body travels. The astral plane has several different theories that surround it. The first is that the astral plane is an alternate dimension of reality which overlays the physical. Another is that it happens to come in contact with the physical world through vibrations, which puts the astral plane on another wavelength separating it from the physical world. No matter what particular description is used to explain the existence of an astral plane, experts in the field agree that there are multiple levels to this alternate plane.

After learning about astral projection and about this other plane of existence, the questions of safety and danger arise. The answer is both yes and no to both the questions of is there danger and is it safe. The astral plane is made up of a number of levels. Some of these levels are safe others are not and the mental clarity and focus of the person astral projecting often determines on which level they travel.

Astral projection can be dangerous if you practice it with an unsound mind. Anyone under the influence of drugs and alcohol can wind up involved in an undesirable predicament at lower levels of the astral plane.

It is vital that you understand where you desire going and exactly what you are participating in. You need to strive on doing astral projection using your conscious mind. Stay in total control as far as what task that the astral body is performing. Your thoughts and thinking processes are what keeps you in this kind of control.

If you prepare yourself properly beforehand you can find yourself able to astral project very quickly.

Numerous professionals are in business to teach you the techniques of how to astral project while being in control so that you can achieve a better projection experience, but most people like to be at home when the astral project.

There are several books on this subject and you can locate other aids to help you online. One type of aid is that of hypnosis recordings that are created for astral projections to get you into the desired state of mind.

There is an advantage to these types of recordings. You can have them play on repeat giving people who may find it difficult to prepare the time necessary to reach the appropriate state of mind; this extra time might not be available if professional sessions are used.

There have been great advances recently in a sound technology called ‘binaural beats’. This works by playing slightly different sound frequencies in each ear. This has the effect of very quickly relaxing you into a deep state of meditation which is necessary for successful astral projection.

The first few times you try to astral project, you may not succeed. Don’t get discouraged.

It is not an ability that you have to acquire, we are all capable of doing it, many have just forgotten how and need to fine tune the natural skill.

Do you still not totally believe this is for real? Well have you ever had dreams that you were flying or had the sensation of falling? The flying was your astral body actually traveling through the various astral planes. The sensation of falling is the astral body coming back to the physical body after it traveling around.

Astral projection is something which any one of us can do and it will become easier with practice.
