journeys out of the body

Most people will have heard at some point in time in their lives the term astral projection. It is possible they may have heard it there are a number of books, movies and people who have studied or follow a new age path.

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.

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 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.

This brings us to the next logical question what is the astral body? The astral body is essentially an invisible ‘double’ of your physical body. The astral body is also known as the ethereal body, and is the seat of our feelings and desires. You may wonder why the astral body doesnt just leave and never return. This is because the astral body remains connected to the physical body via a silver cord.

The silver cord is present your entire life. Until your astral body leaves your physical body at death, your astral body will always be tied to your physical one by this cord.

Are you trying to figure out where you go to when you do this astral projection? Well the astral body travels to what is called the astral plane, which turns out is the invisible duplicate of the Earth. This astral plane rapidly vibrates more than the physical Earth does and these particular vibrations go all the way to the Earth’s core. There is another belief though that another dimension or alternate reality is the meaning of astral plane. One thing most agree about on this subject though is the fact that the astral plane is composed of several layers.

You may also be wondering whether astral projection is dangerous in any way. The answer is both yes, and no. We have already established that anyone is capable of astral projection, and that there is no way the astral body can leave the physical body without returning. But, just like in any other activity, you need to keep your wits about you. What this means is that youll need to have strong mental skills to direct yourself toward where you want to go and what you want to accomplish.

The danger is when you astral project when your mind is clouded or incapacitated. For example, if your mind is impaired by alcohol or drugs, you might end up in bad places. These places are the lower levels of the astral plane.

It is vital that you understand where you desire going and exactly what you are participating in.

You need to strive on doing astral projection using your conscious mind. Stay in total control as far as what task that the astral body is performing. Your thoughts and thinking processes are what keeps you in this kind of control.

Astral projection can actually be very easy to learn with some preparation.

Many like to astral project while at home alone, but you can also attend group sessions which are guided by professionals. These sessions can help you learn to get the best results from your astral projection and can be a good way to get started. It may be helpful to practice on your own as well as with a professional’s guidance.

There are also plenty of resources both online and in books which can help you to prepare yourself. Astral projection hypnosis recordings are an aid which many find helps them to relax and begin projecting.

This helps you get totally relaxed along with taking you through that various levels. This is often the preferred method over a professional approach, because you can replay the recording as much as you need to get your subconscious mind to get the message about when it is alright to begin to astral project and leave your physical body.

Recently there have been great advances in sound technology called binaural beats. This works by playing slightly different degrees of sound frequencies in either ear. This offers a very quickly relaxing and deep state of meditation to occur which is essential for astral projecting success.

Do not be discouraged if you are unable to astral project in the beginning.

As long as you stick with it, you’ll develop this latent ability and be able to enjoy all of the benefits which astral projection has to offer.

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.
