journeys out of the body

Astral projection is something which everyone has at least some familiarity with. It’s something you may have seen or heard about in a book or in a movie.

Relatively few people, though, comprehend that astral projection is a real event, and that everyone is capable of doing it. It is extremely likely that you have astral projected without even knowing it.

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.

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.

When you do project you get to go wherever you want. As you remember when you were a child, you probably can recall doing this as you went to bed, as you grew up you have forgotten it though. You have limitless possibilities of places to go, there are no restrictions as far as distance or time where astral projection is concerned. When you are sleeping your physical body is at sleep, while the astral body goes on a journey.

You may wonder what the astral body is. It is the ethereal body; it is the duplicate of the body in an invisible form. All of our desires and feeling originate from there. Can the astral body leave and not come back? A silver cord unites the astral and physical bodies.

This connection is there from your birth until your death. The silver cord keeps your astral and physical bodies inextricably linked for your entire life.

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.

It is only natural at this point to question whether or not there are any dangers to astral projection. The answer is yes and no. We have established that astral projection is something everyone is capable of doing. We have also stated that there isn’t a way that the astral body can leave the physical body and not come back. But as with anything you do, you need to keep your head about you. This means that you need to make sure you have solid thinking skills so that you are going where you want and you know what you want.

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.

It is essential that you know what it is you do and where it is you want to go. Your goal is to consciously astral project. You need to have complete control of what your astral body is doing.

Your thoughts control your astral projection.

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

Most people like to do their astral projection while alone in the privacy of their home. That said, there are astral projection professionals who conduct group astral travel sessions in order to help others learn how to control their astral projection and to make the most of the experience. You may want to try astral projection both on your own and in a group under the guidance of a professional.

There are resources out there which can be of assistance as you learn astral projection. You can find many books on the subject and there are also many websites which can get you started. There are also some useful aids you can try such as astral projection hypnosis recordings.

This type of recording will help you fully relax and will take you through the necessary stages. The advantage of a recording over a professional session is that you can play the recording multiple times until your subconscious receives the message that it is okay for the astral body to leave the physical body.

Sound technology can also be helpful. There is a technology known as binaural beats, which plays a variety of frequencies in each ear. These frequencies are slightly different and as a result relax the body quickly. This places the mind into a deep meditation making it easier to astral project.

On your first couple of attempts at astral projection, you may not succeed. This is nothing to get discouraged over; practice makes perfect with astral projection as it does with every other kind of skill.

It is not an ability that you have to acquire, we are all capable of doing it, many have just forgotten how and need to fine tune the natural skill.

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!

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