Each and every human being is born with the ability to astral project. The only difference between those who can astral project at will and those who cannot is practice.

Astral projection is something which has an extremely long history, just like yoga and meditation. There are many different names that astral projection goes by and a lot of different ways to astral project.

The initial level of astral projection is lucid dreaming. This type of dreaming is dreaming consciously and is known as the first phase of astral projection. By telling yourself ‘I am dreaming’, the simplest form of projection can be achieved.

However, it can take some time to become skilled in the technique of lucid dreaming, making this perhaps not the best way for beginners to astral projecting to use in their efforts to astral project.

You need to know that astral projection is real. You should also know that you have astral projected already, you simply were not aware that is what had happened.

When you awake from a dream and are able to remember every detail vividly, down to the very smallest elements, you have had an experience of astral projecting. You may have had this happen to you many times this shows you that you can astral project!

The ability to astral project starts with believing that you can do this. Everyone can astral project it’s just a matter of freeing your mind of the doubts which are keeping you from astral projecting.

Relaxation techniques such as meditation can help you prepare to astral project. Meditation is one of the best ways to prepare for astral projection the key is to find a regular meditation routine which can get you the relaxation you need.

Sitting in a quiet, distraction free room in a comfortable chair is the best way to begin meditating with the goal of astral projection.

Do not focus on any stresses or troubles that are burdening you. The best way to do this is to focus on your breathing, your breathing should be deep and slow. With each breath you should see all the troubles in your head leaving you through your mouth. This will help you reach that deeply relaxed state that is needed to astral project.

Your focus should remain on your breathing.

Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.

Your breaths should grow slower and deeper as you move your focus to relaxing your body.

Start with your toes and relax your body bit by bit, working your way up to your head. You can do this by either tensing and then releasing each part of your body as you go along. Alternately, visualize all of the stress and tension leaving from each part of your body as you do your deep breathing.

The best way to describe what you are going to feel is ‘heavy’ it is going to feel as though all of the energy and tension is slipping away from each part of your body. You will know it when it happens. Once you have relaxed each part of your body it is time for you to move to the next step that is going to help you astral project.

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.

There are different ways to achieve a state of altered consciousness. You can repeat your chosen phrase or do it another way. Imagine a glowing light, and then imagine you entering it and transforming yourself into this body of light.

This is referred to as the body of light technique.

There are three signs to watch for that will indicate that you are beginning to astral project. One is having a sensation of motion, followed by ‘seeing’ light and color (even though your eyes will be closed).

You will probably hear voices. These voices will warn you to stop or tell you to go ahead. You will know you have been successful in astral projection when you get to this stage.
