meditation out of body travel

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.

There are however, only a few people in the world who realize that astral projection is not only real but is something that is a natural ability that everyone possesses. Many people have already experienced astral projection by the time they reach adulthood at least once and in some cases, they experience it regularly without even knowing or being aware of the experience.

So just what is astral projection? Astral projection is leaving your body and traveling outside of yourself. This commonly happens while we are asleep.

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.

You go wherever you want to go when you project. If you can recall your childhood you may be able to remember having the ability to do this after going to sleep, eventually you forgot, as you got older. There is no such thing as time and distance when it concerns astral projection, you can go anywhere. While you are sleeping, your physical body is asleep. Your astral body travels.

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

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.

Is astral travel dangerous? That all depends as long as you’re careful with your astral projection and travel with a destination in mind, then astral travel is indeed safe.

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.

This is why it is so important that you know exactly what you are doing and where you are planning to go. The goal you are trying to achieve is not just astral projecting, but conscious astral projection where you are aware of what is going on.

There are a number of ways to get prepared to do astral projection prior to starting it.

The method of preparation varies depending on the professional consulted. However, there are a number of, at home, training programs that provide individuals with the opportunity to learn how to control the experience and ultimately obtain both more enjoyment and benefit from astral projecting.

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.

This will help you completely relax as well as take you through the various stages. An advantage of this over a professional session is that you can play the recording multiple times until your subconscious mind begins to accept that it is perfectly fine for your astral body to leave your physical body.

Many advances have occurred in the area of sound technology that is classified as binaural beats. The way this operates is to generate a different sound in each of your ears. This results in quickly relaxing you into a complete meditative state which is needed for doing astral projection successfully.

You may not be successful on the first few tries, but don’t let this discourage you.

Remember that you have the ability already, all of us have the ability to do astral projection, we have just over time forgotten the method and just need to tune our own natural ability to do it.

Do you still not believe in astral projection? Do you remember that last dream you had about falling or that you thought you were flying? Well the flying dreams are the astral body traveling around the astral planes. When you think you are dreaming of falling that is the astral body returning to your physical body.

Astral projection is real and just needs to be ‘relearn’ as deep down you know what to do. Most people simply need to remember this skill and then fine-tune it.
