In astral projection the astral body leaves the physical.
The astral body is one of seven sheath bodies we all have - as we are all
multi-dimensional. These bodies include the physical, mental, causal,
etheric, emotional, spiritual.
What I have found is that some people can astral project
naturally - and have been doing it for years. Other people are afraid to
leave the physical body and struggle with it, never being able to astral
project. These people could try remote viewing as an alternative.
In astral projection you remain attached by a silver
"umbilical type" cord to your physical body - though you may not see it.
You travel out and are aware of things you encounter along the way.
To astral project, as with all
out-of-body experiences one must feel totally relaxed. Wear loose-fitting, comfortable
clothes. A reclining position is
best. Often it's good to place a comforter over the body as the physical body
sometimes gets cold when you travel out.
You can practice alone or with one person.
Find a quiet place free of distractions.
Adjust the lighting and room temperature.
Adjust clothing, footwear and eyeglasses.
Sit down or lie down.
Find a position that is comfortable for you.
Quiet your mind and still your thoughts.
Relax your body.
Your face, your jaw, relaxing.
Your shoulders, your neck, relaxed.
Your arms, your hands, feel at peace.
Your torso, your hips, letting go.
Your legs, your feet, totally relaxed.
Focus on your breathing.
Inhale slowly and deeply through your nose.
Retain the breath as long as is comfortable.
Exhale through the mouth slowly and completely.
Repeat for two more breaths or as is comfortable.
Let go of the fear of leaving your physical body.
Remember that you astral project when you sleep.
See yourself floating away from your physical body. You may feel a
release or perhaps hear a sound as you leave.
If you get fearful, stop, as you are not ready for astral
projection. Anything done in metaphysics should feel comfortable and easy.
If it is stressful, let it go for now. Read some
books about astral projection
and try again when you're more comfortable with the idea of leaving your
