out of body dreaming experience

At one time or another most people have heard about doing astral projection. Maybe they have a friend that practices it, or watched some movie about it, or even read a book on the subject.

Not all people clearly comprehend that you really can do astral projection and that in fact everyone can do it. You could have easily astral projected without knowing you were doing it at the time.

So just what is astral projection? Astral projection is leaving your body and traveling outside of yourself. This commonly happens while we are asleep.

During sleep, the physical mind rests but the subconscious mind remains active and takes over. This is when a person astral projects, though most people have no memory of doing this.

You go wherever you want to go when you project. If you can recall your childhood you may be able to remember having the ability to do this after going to sleep, eventually you forgot, as you got older. There is no such thing as time and distance when it concerns astral projection, you can go anywhere. While you are sleeping, your physical body is asleep. Your astral body travels.

This brings up the next thing to talk about, what exactly the astral body is. The astral body actually is an invisible copy of your body, this is most commonly called the ethereal body. It is the center of our desires and feelings. Why is it that the astral body does not just leave and not return? Your astral body is actually connected to your physical body by a silver cord.

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.

Are you trying to figure out where you go to when you do this astral projection? Well the astral body travels to what is called the astral plane, which turns out is the invisible duplicate of the Earth. This astral plane rapidly vibrates more than the physical Earth does and these particular vibrations go all the way to the Earth’s core. There is another belief though that another dimension or alternate reality is the meaning of astral plane. One thing most agree about on this subject though is the fact that the astral plane is composed of several layers.

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.

This is the reason it is imperative that you understand how to do this and where you want to project to. Your goal is to do astral projection using your conscious mind. You need to have total control over your astral body and what it is doing. Your total control comes from the thoughts you think.

There are a number of different methods of preparation depending on whom or what you consult.

There are many professional in the field of astral projection who teach a variety of methods for helping people gain this control to have a better experience, though many people prefer to astral project from the comfort and privacy of home.

There are various types of online resources such as books available. You can create the proper state of mind when you listen to quality astral projection hypnosis recordings.

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 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.

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

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.

Are you still not so sure? Think about the last time you dreamt you were flying or felt as if you had fallen. It feels similar to flying when the astral body moves throughout the astral plane. When the astral body returns to the physical body the sensation is much like falling and landing.

Astral projection is not imaginary; it is very real! Anyone can do it and experience its benefits if they only take some time to hone this natural ability.
