Many people believe that everyone is born with the ability of astral projection. Practice makes perfect and that is the only difference between those can and those who can’t.
Astral projecting is an ancient practice that should be treated with the respect that it deserves, much like meditation or yoga. There are a variety of types and names that it is known by. There are also different ways to astral project.
One of these techniques is lucid dreaming, something which is very familiar to most of us. Lucid dreaming is the ability to become conscious within a dream and take control of the happenings within it. All you need to do to begin lucid dreaming is to tell yourself “I am dreaming” while you are in a dream.
Lucid dreaming is a method of astral projecting which can take a while to become an expert in. This means that while this is one of the ways that you can astral project, it’s probably not the best way to begin astral projecting if you are not already skilled in the practice.
All of us have astral projected at some time in the past; maybe even many times, as it happens.
When you awake from a dream remembering every single detail, this was not a dream; you were astral projecting.
The ability to astral project starts with believing that you can do this. Everyone can astral project – it’s just a matter of freeing your mind of the doubts which are keeping you from astral projecting.
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.
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.
Pay attention to your breathing, take slow deep breathes. Imagine all your troubles leaving your body when you breathe out. This will put you in a deeply relaxed state that will enable you to astral project.
You then have to be reach an altered state of consciousness. You can simply continue to work on your breathing, your focus now is not going to be to get rid of the stresses, it is to truly focus on the way you are breathing, your head is clear.
As you become more relaxed, your breathing will become deeper and slower.
Focus on each part of the body, starting at the farthest points, your toes. You can do one of two things here. You can either tense and relax each part of your body as you move up the body or you can say as you exhale, ‘My toes are relaxing, I am relaxing.’
You’ll begin to feel a bit heavy and limp as you release all of the tension and negative energy from your body. After your entire body is relaxed, it’s time to move on to the next step in your efforts 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’.
Your mind may want to drift off and cause thoughts to start flowing through it. You do not want this to happen. You need to keep your focus on a phrase to keep these thoughts out. You will have to end the session and start over if you lose your focus.
You have to achieve an altered state of consciousness in order to astral project. You can reach this state by continuing to repeat your phrase to yourself. Another method preferred by many to astral project is the “body of light” method, where you visualize your body transforming into one made of light.
As you start to astral project, there are three signs which you can watch for to know that you are doing so successfully. The first is a sensation of motion, even though your physical body is perfectly still. The second is ‘seeing’ color and light, even though your eyes will be closed.
Finally, you’ll hear voices urging you either to continue or to stop what you are doing – this is a surefire sign that you have managed to astral project.
