Lately I have had a lot of people asking me about astral projection and wanting to know what it is all about and how to do it.
I have not yet astral projected in this lifetime, so I am writing this article not from experience but from what I have read over the years.
A few years ago I really wanted to learn how to astral project, so I studied and practiced every night but with little success. Eventually I gave up and figured it would happen when I was ready.
Here is what I know about astral projection.
What is Astral Projection?
To put it simply, astral projection is when your soul leaves your body and gets to travel around this dimension and into other dimensions. When you are travelling, your soul can go anywhere and meet anyone, including higher vibrational beings and lower vibrational beings.
When your soul leaves your body, it is attached to a cord. This cord is your lifeline back into your body. When you die, it is this cord that becomes detached that allows your soul to forever be free of your physical body.
Is Astral Projection Dangerous?
If your soul is out of your body and only attached by a cord, you are probably wondering if it is dangerous. The straight up answer to this question is yes.
While it is very unlikely your cord will be cut or detached from your body, when you are astral travelling you can encounter all types of beings. These include lower vibrational beings who may try to suck your energy or confuse you when you are heading back to your body.
All this means is that if you are going to astral project, you need to ensure that you are well protected by your angels and guides.
How Do You Astral Project?
Your soul does not really want to leave its body, so astral projection can be difficult. The first and most important step is to ensure that your room is well protected and that your energy is vibrating on a high frequency.
Astral projection works best when you are feeling drowsy. In fact, astral projection happens in that magic moment just before you fall into the first stage of sleep.
Lie down in a comfortable position making sure your physical body is properly covered so it is warm and comfortable.
Allow yourself to drift off to sleep, but in that moment just when you feel yourself falling asleep, try to keep your mind alert without waking up the rest of your body. This can be tricky to do, but basically it requires you to stay completely relaxed, but aware of your entire body.
One technique to help you with this stage is to look at the colors behind your eyes. You may start to see them making shapes or patterns. By focusing on these colors and patterns, it will help you to stay aware of the fact that you are sleeping.
Once you have mastered this stage, you will start feeling a vibration or a buzzing. This buzzing means that your soul has separated from the body but is still inside of it. To astral project, you need to get your soul up and out of your body.
Allow the buzzing to get louder and stronger, and start preparing yourself to shift out of your body. You may have to put some effort into manifesting your soul to get out.
This does take time and practice, but once your soul is out you should be able to look back at your body and see yourself sleeping.
Once you are out, there is no limit on where you can go and what you can do. Just be aware that astral travel can be draining to your physical body so keep this in mind if you are just starting out.
When you are astral travelling, you can also go back to your body anytime using the power of your mind.
How Can You Stop Astral Projection?
If you are astral projected unconsciously, this is actually referred to as an out of body experience.
If you are having frequent out of body experiences it is usually a sign of trauma or spiritual awakening. The best way to stop out of body experiences is through grounding your energy and coming to acceptance with your physical reality. Going to bed on a full stomach can also help to curb out of body experiences.
Do You Recommend Astral Projection?
Astral projection sounds like an amazing and fun experience, but personally I would be hesitant to force the experience.
If my soul wanted to leave my body and travel around the astral fields while I was still conscious, then great. But if not, then I trust in that.
This doesn’t mean that I won’t ever try again or put my requests out to the Universe for this experience, but this is just my feeling about it. (Maybe I would be saying something different if I had actually experienced it!)
At the end of the day, if it feels like something that is important to you, or if it feels right, then by all means, try it out!
Hopefully this will give you a good starting point to astral projection.
