astral experiences

Astral projection is something which most of us have some familiarity with, at least as far as we’ve heard the term mentioned somewhere. You may know of it from a film, book or from someone you know.

However, it seems very few know that astral projection is a genuine occurrence. It is something that we can all naturally do. You may have even projected and never realize that you did so. Many people do.

We need to first look at the definition for astral projection. To state this in very simple terms, astral projection’s definition is a human being able to move out of their physical body. All humans have this ability, in fact they actually do it when they are sleeping in the night.

While we sleep, our physical body is at rest, the subconscious mind then takes control. While this is going on an individual is astral projecting, although for the most part, they will not remember doing so.

Through astral projection, a person is able to go wherever they want. If you try to remember your childhood, you will likely remember being able to do this at night when you went to bed. As you got older, you began to forget. It is possible to travel anywhere, since you are not bound by time or distance in astral projection. When you are asleep, only the physical body sleeps. It is your astral body that is able to travel.

Many people may not be aware of the fact that many enlightened individuals believe in the existence of multiple bodies. The physical being only one of these bodies and the astral being another. It may also be referred to as the ethereal body. The astral body is considered to be both invisible and a duplicate of the physical body. It lacks substance, which has given rise to its name as an ethereal body. The question then becomes if the body lacks substance how can it be connected to the physical body. The answer is through a silver cord.

This silver cord from your astral body to your physical body was connected at the moment that the two were joined. The cord cannot be severed until death separates the astral and physical bodies for a final time. It is this silver cord that keeps the astral body from permanently straying away.

Another question that many have is where do you go when you astral project? The astral body goes to the astral plane, which is the ‘body double’ of the Earth. This vibrates faster then the physical Earth and those vibrations penetrate to the Earth’s core. Others define the astral plane as another dimension of reality. Most will agree though that there is more then one level to the astral plane.

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 greatest danger when astral projecting comes with the mind is not carefully prepared or under the influence of thought and perception, altering substances such as drugs or alcohol. There are a number of levels to the astral plane. The lower levels are not considered places to visit and are often considered to be unsafe. It is these levels that are easiest to access when under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

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.

When engaging in astral projection it is important to prepare properly. Once you know how to prepare, you will find that astral projection is a quick and easy process.

You might find it useful to go to some group sessions which are conducted by professionals who can help you prepare for a successful astral projection and give you the help you need to make the most of the experience of astral travel. You may want to try both and see which works the best for you.

There are several books on this subject and you can locate other aids to help you online. One type of aid is that of hypnosis recordings that are created for astral projections to get you into the desired state of mind.

There is an advantage to these types of recordings. You can have them play on repeat giving people who may find it difficult to prepare the time necessary to reach the appropriate state of mind; this extra time might not be available if professional sessions are used.

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.

If you are unsuccessful, your first few times when you begin astral projecting do not become discouraged. Practice will make perfect since this is not something that you cannot already do.

It is not an ability that you need to acquire, since we are all able to do it. Its just that many of us have forgotten how and need to hone our natural skill through practice.

Still need to be convinced? When did you last dream you were flying and then felt as though you were falling? As the astral body, moves through the astral plane it, feels like flying.

The sensation of falling comes when the astral body comes back into the physical body.

Astral projection is something which any one of us can do and it will become easier with practice.
