astral project definition

You’ve almost certainly at least heard of astral projection before. You might have learned of it from a book or movie or perhaps a friend has been talking about it. While you know the term and maybe even have an idea of what it is, what you probably don’t know is that this is not something which only happens in fiction.

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.

Lets look at astral projection and find out what it is. A very simple explanation of astral projection is the ability of an individual to actually leave their physical body. Everybody has this ability and you actually do this when you sleep in the 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.

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.

This brings to mind the next question, what is the astral body? The astral body is the invisible duplicate of the body, commonly known as the ethereal body. It is the core of our feelings and desires. Why doesn’t the astral body leave and not come back? The astral body is tied to the physical body with a silver cord.

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.

You might also be wondering where you go when you astral project. The astral body travels to a different plane called the astral plane, which is the Earths ‘body double.’

This plane vibrates at a faster frequency than the physical Earth, and these vibrations are felt in the Earths core. Another common definition of the astral plane is an alternate dimension of reality. Most agree there are multiple levels to the astral plane.

It is natural at this point to wonder whether or not astral projection is dangerous in any way. The answer is both yes and no. We have already established that the astral body cannot permanently leave the physical body, and that everyone is capable of astral projection. But, just like anything you do, you need to be able to think effectively. Solid thinking skills are required so that you can go where you want and know what you plan to accomplish.

Attempting astral projection under the influence of mind altering and perception altering substances such as drugs or alcohol can have a serious effect on the ability of the traveler to travel in safety.

You should know where you want to go and only astral project when you are in the proper frame of mind to do so. You want to have control over where your astral body goes and what it does.

There are a number of different methods of preparation depending on whom or what you consult.

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 also a number of books and online resources available. For example, by listening to a quality astral projection hypnosis recording, you can enter the right state of mind.

These recordings can be played on repeat until they reach your subconscious and you begin to astral project.

A new audio technology called binaural beats can also help you to begin astral projecting quickly. These are slightly different frequencies which are played into each ear. These frequencies relax you and allow you to easily attain the mental state needed for astral projection.

Don’t get frustrated if you are not able to successfully astral project the first time or even the second or third time. This is something that you must practice.

We can all do it. However, it does take fine-tuning to trigger the natural ability since you have forgotten how to.

Still not convinced? When was the last time you dreamt of flying or felt as though you were falling? The flying was the astral body moving through the astral planes. The falling sensation came when you noticed that astral body coming back to the physical body.

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.
