Everyone is born with the ability to astral project. Most people are not even aware that they are traveling. What you want to learn is to astral project consciously you want to control where you send your astral body and remember what it does.
Assuming you already know what your astral body is and what the astral plane is, let’s learn a few different techniques that will help you astral project. When you astral project, you experience something extremely personal. Because of this, it is very important that you learn which techniques work best for you.
The first one is fairly easy for most people. You want to do this when you are in bed and just about ready to go to sleep. This technique involves five simple steps.
*The first thing you want to do is get completely relaxed. You can’t astral project unless you achieve a deep level of relaxation. Lie down in bed, and begin with your toes. Tense them up for a few moments, then consciously relax every muscle. Do the same thing to every muscle, working your way up your body until you finish with your head and face. This may feel unfamiliar at first, but you will soon get used to this method of relaxation. Your body may feel rather heavy. This is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.
*The next step is to take slow, deep breaths. You may want to try a meditation technique where you breathe in slowly and deeply, paying attention to the way it feels as the air comes into your lungs and moves through your body. Exhale slowly and completely, again paying attention to how it feels for the air to leave your body. Imagine all the tension leaving your body with each exhale. It is very important not to fall asleep. If you feel yourself drifting, focus on your forehead, right in the center.
*For step three, evaluate how your body feels. Is it heavy? Imagine your body is a lump of clay that does not move easily. Now, think of your astral body it feels so light. It is weightless floating free. Close your eyes and envision your astral self. It feels so light it could float easily like bubbles or feathers carried by a breeze. The contrast is the physical body feels very heavy, while the astral body feels light as a feather.
*This is the point when many people who prefer this astral projection technique say that they can see the dark room through their closed eyelids. They describe the room as being full of purple light. If you achieve this step, focus on the ceiling light.
*For the fifth step of this method, imagine that you are pulling the light on the ceiling toward you. This action may make you feel like you’re floating. Remember to stay conscious! The floating feeling should continue, and if you look down, you may see your physical body asleep on the bed below.
Wow you just had a successful astral projection session! Now you can begin astral traveling. If this method did not work well for you, try out the next one.
This technique is known as the gazing method. You can do this technique when you are going to bed as well. All you need is something to focus on, this can be a picture in your room, the moon outside the window, a crystal, whatever you prefer.
Once you’ve chosen your object, lie down and get comfortable. Turn your attention to the object. As you keep staring at it, your eyelids should begin to feel heavy. No matter what, keep staring at the object. While your eyes will tend to close eventually, you should still be able to see the object. While you continue to stare, you may feel the urge to sit or stand up. When you do get up, don’t be surprised if you see your physical form peacefully asleep.
If these techniques don’t work for you the first couple of times, don’t get discouraged. Try them again. If they still don’t work, there are other methods to try. It is imperative that you don’t get frustrated. This will only cause anxiety and make it more difficult to relax completely so you can achieve a successful astral projection.
It is important that you realize that tools and techniques aren’t really holding you back. The main obstacle to successful astral traveling is your own subconscious mind. You may need to give your subconscious mind reassurances that it is okay for your astral body to separate from your physical body for a while. Affirmations are an excellent way to send this message. Once your subconscious mind accepts this message, astral projecting will be a piece of cake!
There are a few short cuts that can help you learn to astral project very quickly. They can speed up the process of getting into a relaxed state of mind, making it much easier to have a successful astral session.
Firstly hypnosis can really help to get you into a fully relaxed state. A quality guided hypnosis session will also explain the steps of how to astral project as you are experiencing it, rather than you worrying about what you should be doing!
There have also been recent developments in sound technology with something called ‘binaural beats’ where different sound frequencies are played in each ear. This very quickly puts you into the deeply relaxed meditative state required for successful astral projection.
Remember that being able to astral project is not as difficult as most people believe it is. It is a natural ability that you were born with, and all of these tools and techniques just help you to fine tune an ability which is already there!
