astral projections

We are all born with the ability to astral project. Practice is the only reason some astral project and some do not.

Astral projection is a practice with a long history, just like meditation or yoga. There are many different names which astral projection is known as and there are many different ways to astral project.

Lucid dreaming is the first level of astral projection. This form of dreaming is when you consciously dream and one type is astral projection. Many say this is a simple form of projection and that while you are dreaming, you begin by telling yourself ‘I am dreaming’

Once you have done this, you will begin to be able to take control of your dream. However, until this technique is mastered (which can take a while), this can be too unreliable of a way to astral project.

It is believed that astral projection is very real and that most people have already projected even though they don’t realize it.

Have you ever awoken from a particularly vivid dream remembering every detail? You were not dreaming this you were astral projecting.

Being able to astral project all begins with knowing that this is something that you have the ability to do. Astral projecting is an inborn ability in all of us. You need to eliminate doubt from your mind; this can be keeping you from being able to astral project when you want.

By practicing relaxation techniques including meditation, you can prepare yourself to astral project. Meditation is perhaps the most effective technique to prepare yourself to astral project. The important thing is finding a meditation technique which allows you to become completely relaxed.

You should do your meditation in a quiet room where you have a comfortable place to sit and will not be interrupted or distracted.

Start freeing your mind of worry and tension. You can’t astral project when you have these negative energies in your mind.

Clear your mind of all the stress and worries which can keep you from relaxing. Take deep, slow breaths and as you exhale, visualize all of this stress leaving your body and mind. Stay focused on your breathing and soon you’ll feel yourself relaxing, reaching the state of relaxation you’ll need to be in to astral project.

The next step is to go into an altered conscious state. Keep focusing on your breathing, your problems are gone, your mind is blank.

You’ll feel your breathing become slower and deeper still. Concentrate completely on relaxing your body more and more.

Starting from your toes and working your way up, relax each part of your body. There are two ways you can do this. One is to tense, then relax each part of your body as you move upwards, the other is to visualize the tension leaving each part of your body as you exhale.

You can also tense each part of your body as you go and then breathe out that tension as you exhale. Once you are totally relaxed you are ready for the next stage of successfully managing to astral project.

Your body and your mind will be completely relaxed and it would be very easy to fall asleep, but don’t! To stay alert, you can repeat a phrase to yourself. It doesn’t matter what this phrase is it could be as simple as ‘walk the dog, walk the dog’.

If you begin to get bored as the mind tends to do when it has nothing to focus on, you may have to reel it back in. If you are stuck in this rut, either end the session or use your phrase to bring your mind back into focus.

There are a few different ways you can reach the kind of altered state required for astral projection. You can keep repeating your phrase until you reach it, or use the ‘body of light’ method, where you visualize yourself transforming into a body made of light.

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.

Finally is beginning to hear voices telling you either to stop your meditation or to continue on and astral project. These signs will let you know for sure that you are astral projecting.
