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.

The initial level of astral projection is lucid dreaming. This type of dreaming is dreaming consciously and is known as the first phase of astral projection. By telling yourself ‘I am dreaming’, the simplest form of projection can be achieved.

Lucid dreaming lets you take control of what happens in your dreams; but it can take a while to be able to do this on a regular basis.

This means that it is not an ideal way to astral project, at least for those who are new to the practice.

You need to believe that astral projection does work and is a reality. You have already experienced it but you do not realize it.

Have you ever woken up in the morning and remember a dream as if you were really there? This is form of astral projection.

The key element to astral projection is to know that you can do it. This will help erase any fears or doubts that you may have that could be keeping you from being able to astral project.

Meditation and other relaxation techniques can help you start getting ready to astral project. Meditation is probably the best way to begin; look for a meditation technique which allows you to achieve the total relaxation needed to astral project.

One good way to start your meditation (and astral projecting) is to sit in a comfortable chair in a quiet room where you will not be interrupted or distracted.

Do not focus on any stresses or troubles that are burdening you. The best way to do this is to focus on your breathing, your breathing should be deep and slow. With each breath you should see all the troubles in your head leaving you through your mouth. This will help you reach that deeply relaxed state that is needed to astral project.

To reach an altered state of consciousness, focus more and more on you breathing, which should be slow and deep.

As you become more relaxed, your breathing will become deeper and slower.

Focus on separate areas of the body, beginning with your toes. Tense each part of the body and relax as you work your way up from your toes to your head. As you exhale, tell yourself, ‘my arms are relaxing and I am relaxing.’

You’ll start to feel heavy as you become relaxed. After you have relaxed your entire body, you’ll be able to begin the next step towards astral projecting.

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’.

This works because the mind will wander when given nothing else to do and your focus and relaxation will be ruined. If you lose focus, you’ll have to start all over again. Keep repeating your phrase to stay on track as you prepare to astral project.

There are a few different ways that you can reach the altered state needed to astral project. You can attain this state by continuing to repeat your mantra. Many find the ‘body of light’ technique to be very effective as well. In this technique, you imagine yourself transforming into a body made of light.

When you begin to astral project three things will happen to let you know. You will have a feeling of movement. You will notice different colors and lights in front of you. Your eyes will be closed as you are still in your chair or bed. When you see the lights this is when you are passing into the astral zone.

You will probably hear voices. These voices will warn you to stop or tell you to go ahead. You will know you have been successful in astral projection when you get to this stage.
