In general, the majority of the population has heard of out of body. They may have heard of it from a reading a book, watching a movie or from an enlightened friend.

There are however, only a few people in the world who realize that Out of Body is not only real but is something that is a natural ability that everyone possesses. Many people have already experienced Out of Body 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.

But what is Out of Body, exactly? This is the ability to leave one’s physical body this is something which often happens while we are sleeping. When our bodies are at rest and our conscious minds largely disengaged, our subconscious remains active. You may not remember doing so, but you have almost certainly had some experience with Out of Body.

When astral projecting, you can visit any place in the past, present or future. All you have to do is to focus on it and you can go there. Your astral body is not limited by physical proximity and when your body sleeps, it is free to travel.

This brings us to the next logical question what is the astral body? The astral body is essentially an invisible ‘double’ of your physical body. The astral body is also known as the ethereal body, and is the seat of our feelings and desires. You may wonder why the astral body doesn’t just leave and never return. This is because the astral body remains connected to the physical body via a silver cord.

This cord was actually connected the first moment that your astral body went into your physical body and this cord cannot be cut until your astral body departs the physical body one last time at your death. This cord is what keeps your astral body from staying away when it leaves your physical body.

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.

After learning this information, it is only natural to start to wonder if there are any dangers to astral project. The answer is not as simple as a straightforward yes or no. While out of body is something that everyone is capable of doing and that the astral body is attached to the physical body by a tie that can only be broken by death there is still a need to remain conscience of what is going on while astral projecting and be in a state to maintain that frame of mind.

The only dangers exist when astral projecting while intoxicated. When you’re not fully in control of yourself, then emotional or psychological damage could result. The most dangerous parts of the astral plane are its lowest levels exactly where you’re the most likely to end up while under the influence.

The key to out of body involves knowing what it is you are doing and where you want to go while doing it. You must have complete control of what your astral body may be doing, since your thoughts control your projection experiences.

You can learn to astral project very quickly if you prepare properly beforehand. Many individuals prefer to astral project alone in their own home. However, numerous professionals in the field of Out of Body teach various methods to help others gain control and enjoy an enriched experience. You might even like to try both methods of learning how to astral project.

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 out of bodys to get you into the desired state of mind. This helps you get totally relaxed along with taking you through that various levels. This is often the preferred method over a professional approach, because you can replay the recording as much as you need to get your subconscious mind to get the message about when it is alright to begin to astral project and leave your physical body.

There have been a number of recent advances in sound technologies, one of which is called ‘binaural beats’. Binaural beats work by transmitting slightly varied sound frequencies in each of the listener’s ears. The effect of this is to foster quick entry into a deeply relaxed state of meditation, which is necessary for successful Out Of Body.

Do not be discouraged if you are unable to astral project in the beginning.

It is important to keep in mind that you are simply remembering a skill that you already possess and have used at some point in your past.

Things to look for are the feelings of flight or falling. Falling usually indicates the return of the astral form to the physical and flying is usually indicative of actually engaging in Out of Body.
