astral experiences

Most people have heard of astral projection at some point or another during the course of their lives. Perhaps it was mentioned by a knowledgeable friend, a book, or a movie.

However, few individuals understand that astral projection is a very real event. It is something that anyone can do. More than likely you have astral projected and never even realized it.

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 anyone is asleep the physical body and mind are resting and the subconscious part of the brain assumes control. Most humans simply have no recollection of this.

Many children actually astral project without being aware of what they are doing. It happens usually when the body is relaxed or even when they are asleep. Time and distance do not mean anything when talking about astral projection. The astral body can travel without these considerations.

For those that may not be aware of the various bodies other than the physical. Astral projection is done with the astral body. It is often referred to as the ethereal body because of both its duplication of the physical body and its lack of substance. It is in essence an invisible body. The in turn leads to the question of how is the astral body attached to the physical body. The answer is it is attached with what is often referred to as the silver cord.

The silver cord is there for your entire lifetime. From the moment of your birth, the silver cord is there, connecting your two bodies and is not cut loose until your astral body leaves the physical body behind at death.

Where is it that your astral body goes in its travels? Your astral body goes to the astral plane, a non-physical duplicate of the physical universe. The astral plane is thought to operate at a different frequency than our own, some saying that it is an alternate universe. Most agree that the astral plane is not a single monolithic place, however.

Are there any dangers associated with astral projection? Yes and no you should be careful in your astral travels just as you would when going somewhere with your physical body. Generally speaking though, your astral body can sense danger and return to your physical body without suffering any harm. You should however decide where you want to go before projecting to keep the experience as safe as possible.

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.

You should limit your astral projection to when you are able to be in a proper state of mind and only after you determine where your astral travels will take you. You want to be in total control of your astral body.

With the right preparations, you can easily learn astral projection. Most people prefer to practice astral projection at home by themselves.

A breakthrough in audio technology, binaural beats can help you to astral project in short order. These are special recordings which feature slightly different frequencies for each ear and cause you to relax and reach the meditative state required for astral projection.
