A lot of beginners who try to project quit before ever experiencing a successful separation. Beginners don’t take into account the patience or time that is required to master this technique. Mastering projection is learning to ride a bicycle – once you learn this skill you never forget and it gets much easier every time you do it. By learning about the tools available to guide you when you’re a beginner, you can reduce the time required when starting out and improve your chances of success.
The Astral Plane
The is the spirit realm that is located outside the perception of the five senses. It is the plane where spirits, entities, guides, and angels exist. It’s also the place where physical beings go once they pass on from this life to the next. There are various vibrational levels that exist in this realm and this can be what many call heaven and hell. In the upper levels you will see angels and feel a sense of total peace. At the lower levels low vibrating beings such as what most people call demons and other non-friendly spirits reside.
If you are just beginning to learn about astral projection you’re probably a bit confused about what exactly astral projection is. This is not some advance form of dreaming as most people who have not projected claim but a real experience with actual beings in an actual place. It is the act of changing your perception from your physical body to your astral body where you can then experience new places of existence.
What are the Benefits of Astral Projecting
The rewards of mastering this technique far outweighs the problems beginners face. Whatever your reason for mastering this technique keep it in your mind at all times to keep you motivated and enthusiastic. Here are just a few of the reasons to learn this amazing phenomenon:
Overcoming fear of death – there is no greater excitement than being relieved by immortality. The best way to truly know and prove for yourself that once you pass on from this life you will continue to exist.
Personal and Spiritual Development – not only are we able to talk with our spiritual guides who can show us an extraordinary amount of things, astral travel is the best way to heighten our spiritual and personal development.
Awareness – We become fully knowledgeable of the actual world that exists around us. This allows us to see what we truly are as physical creatures and realize our true purpose in this life.
Wisdom – the spiritual dimension is the place where all wisdom exist – present, past, and future. The total knowledge you can tap into is never ending.
When beginners first have the separation process it can be very scary. I assure you, it is totally natural and safe. You may have heard a lot of rumors surrounding this as it’s still a pretty unknown concept. A lot of these legends are not being able to come back to your body once you separate, entities being able to enter your earthly body, attracting negative beings, and even death. Only one of these legends are not false.
It is actually true that you can attract evil entities that feed off your energy. Now you can do this in the physical realm too but this is all your decision and what doors you want to open. Just as you wouldn’t go into sketchy areas at night or pray to evil spirits in the physical, you shouldn’t go around those locations or try to talk with them in the spiritual realm. As long as you stay away from them they will avoid you. If you do happen to run into a negative spirit while projecting then just request for your guides or guardian angels to protect you and you will have nothing to fear.
How to Astral Travel
Now that you have learned the basics it’s time to learn how to successfully project. Dedication, preparation, patience, and the available techniques used correctly will all take into affect how long it will take before having your first successful projection. If someone is dedicated and practices enough then it can take no more time than a couple of days. On average it will be a couple weeks to master if you use all the correct strategies, but if not it can take a lot of months usually resulting in you giving up. Before trying any of the techniques be ready to set aside a minimum of 10 minutes a day to practice. How much time you spend is up to you but this will determine how quickly you project.
The paralysis state – This is state of mind we must enter before projection will happen. This is where the conscious mind is totally aware yet the body is totally asleep. It’s a form of sleep paralysis. Reaching this state is the hardest thing to reach when you are attempting to project. Once you can get to this state and master how to keep in it, separating from your physical body will be simple.
Extremely advanced people who practice meditation can make it to this level quite easily but this requires many years of dedication and a daily meditation schedule. A lot of breathing exercises out there that work great, but this can take a lot time. If you don’t have a lot of time and are serious about learning how to astral travel fast then the only way to do so is by utilizing special technology such as binaural tones. These tools greatly help your chances of separating while dramatically shortening the time it takes to master it.
Astral projection binaural beats – These tools are a form of brainwave entrainment that influences your brains frequencies to obtain desired states of consciousness instantly. By utilizing binaural tones, they will bring you down to the paralysis state of consciousness very fast and let you stay there where you can then be able to initiate the astral projection process. For these to work properly it’s required to wear headphones. When trying to astral project, lie down, relax, and listen to the sounds of the recording. Do not try any astral travel techniques until you have reached the paralysis state.
How do you know when you have accessed the paralysis state? Pretty much your physical body will be completely numb. You won’t be able to do anything at all and you will have tingling vibrations all over your whole physical body. It’s just like the same feeling you get when your arm falls asleep but it’s totally painless. You might hear a slight buzzing sound in your ears or other strange sounds that people refer to as astral static. Most people starting out pay too much concentration to these vibrations and noises which brings them out of this state. Try the best you can to ignore them and stay determined on separating.
Starting the Separation Process – Now for the exciting part. Your first few attempts you will probably not succeed. Most beginners don’t know just how real it can be. Fear combined with not being sure what’s going to happen, and the adrenaline of knowing your about to project for the first time will surely snap you out of it. Just try to remain calm and don’t get frustrated. Patience is a virtue.
Once in the hypnagogic state you should be able to raise your astral limbs pretty easily. The head will be the hardest because it has the strongest attachment. Using the techniques below, you will be able to easily astral project with very little practice.
Roll Out Method – Use your spiritual body and act as if you’re falling out of bed quickly. Many beginners try physically rolling out of bed stopping the entire process. Make sure not to attempt any physical exertion but to roll out only in your mind.
The Rope Technique – Probably one of the most successful and easiest techniques to try. Some people like to actually hang a piece of yarn from the roof for a reference place but this is not required. Visualize a string hanging down in arms reach. Hold on to it with your astral arms and use it to pull yourself out.
Visualization – The most difficult to learn, but when done correctly, it’s the most effective. It also definitely depends on how good of an imagination you have. You basically imagine you’re standing around ten feet away from your physical body. Observe the room with as much detail as you can from the perspective of this position. If you can do it long enough with enough details, your astral body will project to that point.
Feather – Think that your spiritual body is like a feather. As you feel yourself becoming lighter, you can basically separate.
The Power of Will – Not for beginners but with a lot of time you will basically be able to will yourself into the astral.
Tips on Control in the Astral
When you have successfully projected you will find yourself in a new plane with new physics that are not the same as the physical world. You will have to take beginning steps to master how to control your spiritual body. The main thing you will want to do is get as far away as you can from your physical room as possible. Your physical body is like a magnet and it’s very easy to get pulled back in, and definitely at the beginning when your astral body is still very weak.
When in the astral plane at the beginning it may be as if you are drugged. It’s confusing, you get lost easily, your vision can be blurry or completely gone, and it’s difficult to move where you want to go. This is when you must learn the power of your conscious. The astral dimension is a much higher vibrational dimension than the less subtle earth plane. Just like the physical, your consciousness creates your reality, only at a much quicker rate.
With these basic techniques and listening to binaural beats anybody will be able to astral project as long as they spend the time to practice.
