In this issue we will cover everything you need to know about astral projection.
The term “astral projection” is used to describe a phenomenon in which a person’s consciousness leaves his/her physical body and travels outside independent of it. This experience is also called out-of-body experience (OOBE), since the consciousness or mind or soul or astral body or whatever you wish to call it leaves the body.
Exposing the Facts
Hundreds of thousands of people claim to have experienced an astral projection or an out-of-body experience (OOBE) or an NDE (Near-Death Experience). Real-life accounts of OOBEs have been published in various astral traveling books in the sixties and seventies.
The idea of consciousness leaving the physical body, however, is not new. The ancients knew exactly what astral projection is, perhaps more than we do now. The Classical, Medieval, Renaissance, Theosophist, and Rosicrucian philosophies spoke about the astral body as a link between the soul and the physical body.
The ancient Egyptians spoke about the ability of the soul to leave the physical body in a subtle body, which they referred to as “ka.” The Egyptians also mentioned the silver cord, which links the astral body to the physical body throughout the life of an individual and is broken only at death. The Chinese and the Indians also knew about astral traveling and wrote about it in their texts.
However, if you ask the scientists and the rationalists what is astral projection, they might tell you that it is a “figment of the imagination,” “a trick of an over imaginative mind,” “hallucination,” or “something that cannot be taken seriously” because there is “no evidence” for it. Neurologists think that an OOBE takes place when the brain confuses between visual and tactile inputs.
How can people achieve an Astral Projection? Most of the time, it happens spontaneously. But sometimes, it happens in extreme situations such as tragic accidents or mental traumas. Drug and alcohol abuse can also lead to astral projection. Recently, a technological development called binaural beats claims to be an aid in achieving an Astral projection.
There are innumerable techniques for people who wish to have the experience. Some commonly used techniques are relaxation, meditation, visualization, and so on. Adopt one that best suits you and experience this amazing reality for yourself.
Does astral projection really work?
Yes, astral projection really works; moreover, it has been proven in controlled laboratory conditions, where natural projectors have been closely observed.
Projecting into the astral plane is something natural. We all project, but unconsciously in our sleep. So, why should you be afraid of learning to project consciously? After all, it is something you do every night in your sleep!
Learn astral projection, and an entire world of beauty and knowledge will be opened to you. You just need eagerness to begin at the earliest time possible. You can easily learn irrespective of your nationality, culture, way of life, religious beliefs, and so on.
Astral Projection For Beginners – 5 Things Beginners Must Learn
If you want to astral project, you must understand that astral projection is easy; anybody can do it! In other words, astral projection is not a special gift given to a chosen few. Even you can astral project, given that you have the patience, grit, determination, and the will to do so. There are plenty of resources on astral projection for beginners. Here are five things all experienced astral travellers have learnt:
This is one of the basic astral projection tips for beginners. Learn as much as possible from books, eBook, articles, and so on. Once you know everything about astral projection, you can successfully discard all fears, misunderstandings, and misconceptions you might have about the subject. Such negativities will only hinder your progress.
2. Train Your Mind
Train your mind to be still. Request people to stay away from you for some time. Go to a quiet place and become conscious of the noises inside your head. Examine your troubles, problems, hopes, and desires. Seek solutions to these problems and let them go. It doesn’t matter if the solution seems absurd; just take it as an excuse to let go of your problem.
Training one’s mind requires tremendous time and patience, and you must practice everyday in order to achieve it.
Complete relaxation is important because astral projection happens only when the body is fully asleep and the mind is fully awake. Adopt a relaxation technique that suits you and learn how to relax each and every muscle of your body.
4. Improve Your Concentration
You will never be able to astral project if you cannot focus on what you are doing. There are plenty of concentration-enhancing exercises that you can do.
For instance, focus on a boring sound. Avoid listening to music because it is easier to focus on music. Listen to something boring such as the ticking of a clock and train your mind to focus on it. Alternatively, you can gaze at the flame of a candle and gently push those stray thoughts away.
5. Use An Exit Technique
Once you have become good at the above points, you then need an Astral projection technique that you can use to come out of the body. There are many good techniques available. So use the one that suits you.
With practice you will find yourself out of your body, exploring the astral realms! And it can really be a wonderful experience.
Always remember that everything you need is within you right now. The capacity for out-of-body experiences is inherent in your being. When you are prepared it will happen naturally, it is not something that can be forced. Just prepare and allow it to happen with no expectations.
