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, there are only a small number of people that understand that astral projection is both real and something that anyone and everyone can do. In fact, many people have actually experienced at least one astral projection in their lives and while some may be aware of this experience, many people are not.
You need to understand what astral projection really is. Astral projection is the ability of an individual to leave his or her body. Everyone has the ability to do this; everyone does this when he or she lay down to sleep at night.
When you are asleep our physical mind is at rest and the subconscious mind takes over. When this happens that is when a person astral projects. Most people simply don’t remember doing this.
Astral projection allows you to travel to any place you can imagine. You can visit the past, explore the future or go anywhere in the present that you focus your mind on. Your astral body knows no distance and can go anywhere and to anytime while your body is asleep.
You may wonder what the astral body is. It is the ethereal body; it is the duplicate of the body in an invisible form. All of our desires and feeling originate from there. Can the astral body leave and not come back? A silver cord unites the astral and physical bodies.
The silver cord is attached from the moment that the astral body and the physical body connect. It only detaches at the moment of death when the astral and physical body permanently disconnect from each other. It is this cord that recalls the astral body to the physical body.
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 this information, it is only natural to start to wonder if there are any dangers to astral project. The answer is not as simple as a straightforward yes or no. While astral projection is something that everyone is capable of doing and that the astral body is attached to the physical body by a tie that can only be broken by death there is still a need to remain conscience of what is going on while astral projecting and be in a state to maintain that frame of mind.
You can find danger if your mind is not sound when you astral project. Therefore, anyone under the influence of drugs or alcohol can find themselves in a crisis. These may be the lower levels of the astral plane.
For this reason, it is important that you prepare ahead of time by knowing where you are going and what you plan to do. Your goal is to be a conscious participant in astral projection. You will want to have complete control over the actions of your astral body. This control is directed by your thoughts.
When engaging in astral projection it is important to prepare properly. Once you know how to prepare, you will find that astral projection is a quick and easy process.
Some individuals prefer doing astral projection alone in their homes. Meanwhile, others learn various methods that help them gain control and enjoy their experiences while being lead by numerous professionals in the astral projection field.
There are various types of online resources such as books available. You can create the proper state of mind when you listen to quality astral projection hypnosis recordings.
You can listen to these recordings to relax and allow your subconscious to hear the messages on the recordings that it’s time to astral project.
There have been many recent advances in an audio technology called ‘binaural beats’. This technology works by slight variances in sound frequencies played in each ear. The effect of this is a quick and complete relaxation that fosters a deep meditative state. This meditative state is necessary if you want to successfully astral project.
Try not to become frustrated if you cant astral project successfully on your first try, or even your second and third tries. This technique is something that must be practiced.
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.
If youre still skeptical about astral projection, think back to those dreams you’ve had where you are flying and then suddenly following which you may have had right before waking. Flying is how your astral body travels and the falling sensation was your astral body returning to your physical one; it wasn’t a dream at all!
The practice of astral projection is truly a real thing! Everybody is able to do it and get benefit from it, they just need to hone their natural skills.
