out of body dreaming experience

At some point in time in your life, you have probably heard the term astral projection. You may have heard it in a movie, it may have come up in a book you read or even in a conversation, you may have engaged in when speaking to a friend.

Few people though understand that astral projection is a real event, and that it is something that everyone can do. Chances are very high that you have astral projected and didn’t even realize it.

Lets look at astral projection and find out what it is. A very simple explanation of astral projection is the ability of an individual to actually leave their physical body. Everybody has this ability and you actually do this when you sleep 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.

Many children actually astral project without being aware of what they are doing. It happens usually when the body is relaxed or even when they are asleep. Time and distance do not mean anything when talking about astral projection. The astral body can travel without these considerations.

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.

This silver cord was connected the first time the astral body entered the physical body and can not be severed until the astral body leaves the physical body for the last time, death. It is the silver cord that prevents the astral body from straying away.

You may wonder where you may go when you astral project. The astral body goes to the astral plane. It is the invisible double of the Earth. It has a faster vibration than the physical Earth and its vibrations penetrate to the center of the Earth. Some define it as another dimension of reality. However, the majority agree that there are many levels of the astral plane.

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.

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.

For this reason, it is important that you prepare ahead of time by knowing where you are going and what you plan to do. Your goal is to be a conscious participant in astral projection. You will want to have complete control over the actions of your astral body. This control is directed by your thoughts.

You can learn to astral project very quickly if you prepare properly beforehand.

There are a number of professionals in the field of astral projection that teach different techniques to help a person gain that control and have a better experience, though most prefer to astral project on their own at home.

There are also plenty of resources both online and in books which can help you to prepare yourself. Astral projection hypnosis recordings are an aid which many find helps them to relax and begin projecting.

These can enhance your relaxation and take you through the variety of stages. You can repeatedly play these recordings over again until your subconscious mind understands the message that it is fine for you to leave your body. They are most beneficial.

There have been many recent advances in an audio technology called ‘binaural beats’. This technology works by slight variances in sound frequencies played in each ear. The effect of this is a quick and complete relaxation that fosters a deep meditative state. This meditative state is necessary if you want to successfully astral project.

If you are unable to astral project at first, do not be concerned. It is something that requires practice to be able to do.

Astral projection can take some practice before you get good at it and with time, you will develop this natural ability.

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 a real phenomenon! With a bit of time to fine tune this natural ability, anyone can experience the benefits of astral projection.
