Many people believe that everyone is born with the ability of astral projection. Practice makes perfect and that is the only difference between those can and those who can’t.

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 methods is lucid dreaming.

This is something you probably already know something about. This, of course is when you are able to control your dreams because you are conscious and in full control of your faculties in the dream. You can begin lucid dreaming by telling yourself “I am dreaming” while you are in a dream.

Doing this lets you take the reins in your dreams but it takes a while to master this, making it not the best way for beginners to astral project.

You have astral projected before, perhaps many times. You may not have been aware that this is what you were doing.

Have you awakened from a dream still fresh in your mind, which seems as though you really lived the experience? These dreams are an actual experience of astral projection.

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.

Relaxation techniques like meditation can help you to astral project successfully. Meditation is an especially good method of preparing yourself to astral project. You’ll just need to find a regular routine of meditation which works for you.

Do your meditation in a quiet, comfortable room where you will not be distracted as you meditate. Clear all thoughts from your mind.

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.

Focus on breathing in through the nose and letting the airflow out through your mouth. You are breathing slower and deeper and getting more relaxed, now focus on relaxing your body.

Starting from your toes, work upwards, relaxing every part of your body as you proceed. You can do this by either tensing then relaxing each part of your body or by moving up, visualizing each part of you relaxing as you go.

You’ll start to feel heavy as you become relaxed.

After you have relaxed your entire body, you’ll be able to begin the next step towards astral projecting.

At this point, you’ll be so completely relaxed that you may be tempted to fall asleep. To prevent this and stay focused on your goal of astral projection, repeat a phrase to yourself. It really doesn’t matter what this mantra is; even ‘ham on rye’ can work. Just choose one and repeat it to yourself.

The mind tends to get bored when it is not doing anything, which can mean that it will drift and find something else to focus on. You don’t want that to happen. If the mind wanders then you need to quit the session. To help bring the mind back 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.

Three feelings you can expect to experience that will let you know that you have achieved astral projection are initially feeling as through your floating or moving. You will then see lights and colors even though your eyes are closed, this is believed to be your body moving into the astral world.

Finally you will hear voices these voices may urge you to stop what you’re doing or provide encouragement to keep going; this will let you know that you are astral projecting.
