Having an astral projection is one of the most fantastic experiences we
can have in this lifetime. We can go anywhere, meet everyone and feel
the Joy of Life. So how does an ordinary astral projection occur?
Personally, I have experienced many types of astral projections, and I
shall describe the basic process which is common to everyone. I will use
a practical example of a voluntary astral projection which is the same
for spontaneous astral projections. Before starting, please read the warning
you have a volatile temperament (physical or emotional) or if
you suffer from any medical condition that weakens you a lot,
then this experiment might alter your condition. If you are seeking
a healing method, then go to the appropriate page -
Astral Traveler takes no responsibility of any kind if this experiment
aggravates your condition.
First of all, let's create the conditions
for this experiment. Previously I had described an example with a glass
of water. Well, in this case I'll describe the step-by-step procedure.
Are you ready? If not, then take a deep breath and relax. If yes, then
- You must feel thirsty before starting
- Place a glass of water let's say 3m
(approx. 10 feet) away from where you'll be situated.
- Create an environment where you'll feel
relaxed and comfortable. That means that the room temperature and your
position (sitting or reclining) should be right for you. The air should
be fresh and clean - room temperature, posture, air and noise - can
modify the experience. If you expect visitors or a phone call, then
delay this experiment, which doesn't take 5 minutes.
For the purpose of this experiment, I would recommend for you to lie
down flat on your back.
- Start clearing your mind of daily stress
and while this takes place, change your breathing rhythm by slowing
it down. Breathe slowly and deeply.
- You should start feeling very heavy
and your body should feel numb (paralyzed). In this state your body
temperature should drop and it's very important that the room temperature
remains constant. When complete relaxation of the muscular system is
induced without falling asleep, you will experience an illusion of levitation.
- Start thinking (no rush involved) of
how you would get up and slowly approach the glass of water. Visualize
the process. But don't fall asleep.
- Continue breathing while this sense
of levitation takes place. As this takes place, do not start questioning
your psychology, as the Spiritual body knows what's happening and your
physical mind doesn't.
- This sense of levitation will move the
Astral Body out of coincidence with the physical counterpart. As levitation
basically means going upwards, that's how will your Astral body will
- Continue breathing and slowly visualize
getting the glass. The visualization taking place is done in a conscious
level, and the Astral body will follow suit.
- At a certain level the Astral Body stops
levitating, and slowly moves into a vertical position as your conscious
mind keeps transmitting to the Spiritual Self that your approach for
the glass is by walking. Your Astral body may not touch the floor as
it's a material object, and the levitation that took place is in the
space that surrounds you.
- At this point, when your Astral body
is in vertical position, you may sense something that holds you from
the back. You have nothing to fear. This something is the vital line
of force connecting the physical body with its Astral counterpart, and
it's called the astral cord or astral cable. Try not to feel nervous,
as this will cause the cord to strengthen or it can pull you back into
the body. Remember, nothing can harm you in any shape or form, and fear
is an obstacle in all spiritual experiences. Keep in mind that any type
of emotion increases respiration and heart beat.
- Start moving slowly towards the glass.
As you do this, you may feel that your Astral cord is stretching from
one body to the other, regardless of the distance between them. The
less space that lies between the two bodies the greater is the thickness
of the Astral cord, the greater is the magnetic pull, and the more difficult
it is to hold the stability of the Astral Body. If you are fearless,
you may slowly turn your head to see the Astral cord and your physical
body lying down. But, I stress that if you still fear the unknown due
to religious or personal beliefs, then continue walking. Otherwise,
your cord will strengthen and pull you back into your physical body.
If that happens you will wake up suddenly and maybe with a fright or
- When you arrive near the glass, pick
it up and drink the water you wanted to quench your thirst. This doesn't
mean that the glass actually moved and the water was spilled on the
floor, as thirst is just a human need and not a Spiritual desire. In
other words, being thirsty, hungry, cold, hot, or needing to go to the
toilet is just a need that creates a habit in physical life. In the
Astral plane there is no need to dress up due to temperature, drink,
eat, smoke a cigarette, have sex, or whatever we do in our daily lives
while still on earth. When we picked up the glass and drank, this was
the result of our subconscious mind assuming that our desire was accomplished.
If we are hot and conduct this experiment, then when we touch the glass
of water a cooling effect is sent through our Astral body to our physical
- Once you drink the water you want, you
may return to your physical body by walking towards it. Keep in mind
that if you do this then you'll definitely see your body from the outside.
If you are still afraid of your duplicate, then just think of returning
and the astral cord will pull you back slowly until you are aligned
with your physical body. The journey back is the same as during exteriozation.
If you panic, the magnetic pull to your body can be almost instant,
which creates the effect of shock or fright. However, if you return
to your body slowly and wake up dizzy, it's because your Astral body
is not bound tightly to your physical one.
