an out of body experience

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.

Few people though understand that astral projection is a real event, and that it is something that everyone can do. Chances are very high that you have astral projected and didn’t even realize it.

First, it is a good idea to understand what astral projection is. In simple terms, astral projection is the ability to leave ones body. Everyone has this ability, and everyone does this at night during sleep.

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 astral projecting, you can visit any place in the past, present or future. All you have to do is to focus on it and you can go there. Your astral body is not limited by physical proximity and when your body sleeps, it is free to travel.

Many people may not be aware of the fact that many enlightened individuals believe in the existence of multiple bodies. The physical being only one of these bodies and the astral being another. It may also be referred to as the ethereal body. The astral body is considered to be both invisible and a duplicate of the physical body. It lacks substance, which has given rise to its name as an ethereal body. The question then becomes if the body lacks substance how can it be connected to the physical body. The answer is through a silver cord.

As the astral body first enters the physical body, the silver cord is connected. There is no depletion of this until after the time of death, when the astral body leaves the physical body for the very last time. This silver cord prevents the astral body from leaving and not coming back.

So where is it that your astral body travels to? Your astral body moves about in the astral plane, which is an ethereal duplicate of the universe familiar to you. There are different schools of thought about the nature of the astral plane, but there is general consensus that it is made up of many different layers.

Naturally, you may question as to the dangers of astral projection. Yes and no is the answer. Astral projection is something we are all capable of doing. We also know that the astral body can exit the physical body and will return. However, as with all things you should be sensible. What this means is that you do need good solid thinking skills and know what you want in order to go where you want to go.

The danger then comes when you astral project when you mind is not sound. So if a person is under the influence of alcohol or drugs they could end up in bad places. The bad places would be the lower levels of the astral plane.

The key to astral projection involves knowing what it is you are doing and where you want to go while doing it. You must have complete control of what your astral body may be doing, since your thoughts control your projection experiences.

With the correct preparation astral projection can be done by you quickly.

You might find it useful to go to some group sessions which are conducted by professionals who can help you prepare for a successful astral projection and give you the help you need to make the most of the experience of astral travel. You may want to try both and see which works the best for you.

There are a lot of helpful resources out there to help you learn astral projection.

There are books and websites which contain useful information and recordings such as astral projection hypnosis recordings.

It not only relaxes you but goes through the different stages required with you. This is often preferred over a session with a professional due to the fact that you can play the recording over and over again until your mind’s subconscious receives the signal that it is alright to go ahead and leave your physical body.

Many advances have occurred in the area of sound technology that is classified as binaural beats. The way this operates is to generate a different sound in each of your ears. This results in quickly relaxing you into a complete meditative state which is needed for doing astral projection successfully.

Do not be discouraged if you are unable to astral project in the beginning.

Astral projection takes practice just like any other skill. It’s a natural ability, but it does take some time and patience before you’ll be an expert at it.

Are you still not so sure? Think about the last time you dreamt you were flying or felt as if you had fallen. It feels similar to flying when the astral body moves throughout the astral plane. When the astral body returns to the physical body the sensation is much like falling and landing.

Astral projection is naturally very real. We can all do it and find it beneficial in many ways. It does however; take time to fine-tune this natural ability.
