out of body practice

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.

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.

With the body and the conscious mind asleep, the subconscious comes to the fore and you can astral project.

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.

For those that may not be aware of the various bodies other than the physical. Astral projection is done with the astral body. It is often referred to as the ethereal body because of both its duplication of the physical body and its lack of substance. It is in essence an invisible body. The in turn leads to the question of how is the astral body attached to the physical body. The answer is it is attached with what is often referred to as the 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.

Another thing that people wonder is where they go when they do astral projection? Your astral body travels to what is called the astral plane, which happens to be an invisible copy of the Earth. This actually has faster vibrations than the physical world does and these vibrations do penetrate the core of the Earth.

Some believe though that the astral plane is reality in a different dimension. Many of the people will agree to the belief that there are several levels to an astral plane.

It is perfectly alright at this stage if you are concerned about possible hazards in doing astral projection. The answer to this is both no and yes. We have already mentioned these facts that the astral body always returns to the physical thanks to the silver cord, also that everyone can do astral projection. You just need to make sure you have your mind right to do this though. This means that your basic thinking skills should be strong and sound, this way you will be able to know exactly what you want and even more important where you want to go.

The danger then comes when you astral project when you mind is not sound. So if a person is under the influence of alcohol or drugs they could end up in bad places. The bad places would be the lower levels of the astral plane.

Only practice astral projection when you are in the right frame of mind and after having decided where you want your astral body to visit in your travels.

It’s important to have full control over your astral body to ensure a safe and enjoyable astral projection experience.

If you prepare yourself properly beforehand you can find yourself able to astral project very quickly.

There are many professional in the field of astral projection who teach a variety of methods for helping people gain this control to have a better experience, though many people prefer to astral project from the comfort and privacy of home.

The Internet is one of the largest repositories of information available on astral projection. There are hypnotic recordings available and there are also a number of books all of which describe the techniques, what to expect and different ways of dealing with what you discover.

It will help you relax and walk you through the various stages.

This is beneficial since you can continue playing the recording repeatedly until your subconscious mind picks up the message that it is all right for you to leave your 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.

The first few times you try to astral project, you may not succeed. Don’t get discouraged.

Realize that this is a skill that you will need to practice. You do not have to acquire this ability; it is one we all have. We simply have forgotten how and must fine tune this inherent ability.

Still skeptical? Think back to a time when you dreamed you were flying, or felt a sensation of falling. The flying sensation was your astral body moving through the astral planes. The feeling of falling was when you felt your astral body returning to your physical body.

Astral projection really exists! Take time to tune your natural abilities and you will see that anyone has the abilities to perform this and reap the benefits from it.
