an out of body experience

In general, a majority of people have heard of the term ‘astral projection’.

Perhaps they were introduced to the concept through an enlightened friend, or may have seen a movie or read a book on the topic.

However, astral projection isn’t something which only happens in fictional entertainment it’s very real and it is something which every man and woman has the capacity to do. You have almost certainly done it yourself, though you may not have known that this is what you were doing.

First we need to understand what astral projection really is. Simply put, astral projection is the ability a person has to leave their body. This is an ability that every person has, and that every person does when they go to sleep at night.

While sleeping the physical mind is resting and the subconscious mind takes control.

A person astral projects while this is happening. However, the majority may never remember astral projecting.

In fact, many young children engage in astral projection without understanding what they are doing. It can happen automatically if the body is relaxed, but many adults just feel that they are dreaming. But astral projection is real! The astral body can travel without regard to either time or distance.

But what is your astral body? This is a duplicate of your physical body made of your subconscious will and desires. It is invisible to the eye and is tied to your body by a silver cord; so your astral body will always return after its travels.

As the astral body first enters the physical body, the silver cord is connected. There is no depletion of this until after the time of death, when the astral body leaves the physical body for the very last time. This silver cord prevents the astral body from leaving and not coming back.

Another thing that people wonder is where they go when they do astral projection? Your astral body travels to what is called the astral plane, which happens to be an invisible copy of the Earth. This actually has faster vibrations than the physical world does and these vibrations do penetrate the core of the Earth. Some believe though that the astral plane is reality in a different dimension. Many of the people will agree to the belief that there are several levels to an astral plane.

Naturally, the question of danger astral projecting comes to mind. The answer is both yes and no. We all have the ability to astral project. We know that the astral body can leave the physical body it will return. However, we must be sensible as with all things. Astral projection requires a good solid thinking skills and understanding what it is you want and where you would like to go.

However, astral travel can be dangerous when you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Chemical substances can restrict your astral body to traveling on the lowest and most dangerous layers of the astral plane.

It is vital that you understand where you desire going and exactly what you are participating in. You need to strive on doing astral projection using your conscious mind. Stay in total control as far as what task that the astral body is performing. Your thoughts and thinking processes are what keeps you in this kind of control.

With the correct preparation astral projection can be done by you quickly.

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.

There are resources out there which can be of assistance as you learn astral projection. You can find many books on the subject and there are also many websites which can get you started. There are also some useful aids you can try such as astral projection hypnosis recordings.

There is an advantage to these types of recordings. You can have them play on repeat giving people who may find it difficult to prepare the time necessary to reach the appropriate state of mind; this extra time might not be available if professional sessions are used.

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 listeners ears. The effect of this is to foster quick entry into a deeply relaxed state of meditation, which is necessary for successful astral projection.

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

As long as you stick with it, you’ll develop this latent ability and be able to enjoy all of the benefits which astral projection has to offer.

If youre not convinced that you can astral project, think back to one of those dreams you’ve had where you’re flying, then falling. This was an astral projection, not a dream. The flying you experienced was your astral body traveling and the falling sensation was your astral body returning to your physical body.

Astral projection is something which any one of us can do and it will become easier with practice.
