The ability to astral project is an innate ability that each and every person is born with. The difference between those that astral project on a regular basis and those that do not know they are doing it is simply practice.

Astral projection is a technique with a long pedigree, just as that possessed by yoga and meditation. Astral projection is known by a lot of different names and there are several ways which you can astral project.

Lucid dreaming is one of the ways that you may astral project. You already know about lucid dreaming; this is the ability to become conscious of your dreams while you are dreaming and start controlling the course of your dream. You can start lucid dreaming by just telling yourself ‘I am dreaming’ while you are in the midst of a dream.

Lucid dreaming is a method of astral projecting which can take a while to become an expert in. This means that while this is one of the ways that you can astral project, it’s probably not the best way to begin astral projecting if you are not already skilled in the practice.

You need to believe that astral projection does work and is a reality. You have already experienced it but you do not realize it.

Have you ever woken up in the morning and remember a dream as if you were really there? This is form of astral projection.

The key element to astral projection is to know that you can do it. This will help erase any fears or doubts that you may have that could be keeping you from being able to astral project.

Meditation and other relaxation techniques can help you start getting ready to astral project. Meditation is probably the best way to begin; look for a meditation technique which allows you to achieve the total relaxation needed to astral project.

To begin meditation, sit in a quiet, peaceful room in a comfy chair, make sure that there are no distractions. As you become relaxed, clear your mind of all stress and day to day problems.

Eliminate all of the worries and negative thoughts and feel yourself relaxing. Focus on your breathing. Take slow, deep breaths; inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth.

Achieving an altered state of consciousness is the next level of astral projection. Consistantly breathing deeply and slowly to keep your mind clear and stay relaxed is the goal at this state.

Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth, breathing deeper and slower as you become more relaxed. Concentrate on relaxing your body even more.

Focus on separate areas of the body, beginning with your toes. Tense each part of the body and relax as you work your way up from your toes to your head. As you exhale, tell yourself, ‘my arms are relaxing and I am relaxing.’

You’ll start to feel heavy as you become relaxed.

After you have relaxed your entire body, you’ll be able to begin the next step towards astral projecting.

By now, you’ll be so relaxed that you might be ready to doze off. However, you must not do this. Stay focused by repeating a phrase to yourself. You can repeat anything you want as your mantra. You could even use ‘Dubuque, Iowa’. All that matters is that it works for you.

Your mind may want to drift off and cause thoughts to start flowing through it. You do not want this to happen. You need to keep your focus on a phrase to keep these thoughts out. You will have to end the session and start over if you lose your focus.

There are a few different ways to reach the necessary state of altered consciousness for astral projection. You can repeat your phrase until you get there, or you can use the ‘body of light’ method here, you envision a body made of light which you visualize yourself transforming into.

Three feelings you can expect to experience that will let you know that you have achieved astral projection are initially feeling as through your floating or moving. You will then see lights and colors even though your eyes are closed, this is believed to be your body moving into the astral world.

Last, it is said that you will hear voices that will tell you to stop or encourage you to keep going. This state lets you know that you have achieved astral projection.
