Astral Projection is something I have been wanting to do. Willingly for a while but sadly I can't. I was wanting to know does anyone have an idea of how to do Astral Projection? I mean there are such things as a dream world and stuff. But my thing is how can you go there willingly and not have to do all kinds of crazy stuff to get there? Some one help me out message me here or at my email pineapplekatastar -at- yahoo.com.
This is what I know so far can any one take me to a high understanding?
What is Astral Projection?
Astral Projection is the projection of your mental body to any place outside your physical body. To do this, the mental body needs a part of your astral body to serve as its vehicle. It's not an unnatural thing to happen. In fact, we unconsciously do it two to four times at night, when we are asleep. Many little children for example report 'flying' dreams. Those weren't dreams, but astral projections. The real fun starts if we can train our being to astrally project 'at will', or, in other words, when we are conscious. When you are consciously 'out there' (on the Astral Plane), you can go anywhere you want, see what you want to see, heal the sick, work some spells and meet the other beings on the Astral Plane; the elementals, the guides, other astral travelers, earthbound spirits, angels etc. You can even have Astral Sex! It's even more fun than Net-surfing!
-- How to do it?
There are many ways to achieve Astral Projection. In fact, there are about as many different ways as there are practitioners. Shamans may call up on the help of nature spirits to take him out of his body. A traditional Quabalist may meditate upon the path between Yesod and Tiphareth. A Golden Dawn or Enochian ritualist may use the 'skrying in the spirit vision' rituals. So, there's not one way to do it. Please remember this as you go along and feel free to make any adjustments you want to make to the following meditation. As long as it 'feels right', you're doing fine. The meditation in this text, however, was designed to more or less 'bridge' the different methods used to Astrally Project. It's Wiccan nor Crowleyian nor GD'ian nor whatever.
The designers (Denning&Philips) have taken a good look at all the 'overlapping' points in all those different rituals, and have concluded that these 'overlap' points are the important 'points' in the process
Of astral projection. They managed to synthesize these points into the following meditation
You have to prepare yourself properly before you can successfully astrally project. It takes a long, long time of hard work and practice before you can just sit down and pop out. Only the best and most dedicated magicians may achieve this status. Us mere mortals have to gradually glide into the process and gently persuade our bodies to let go of part of its consciousness and astral body. Here are some important points:
Learn the meditation properly by heart. This is easier thanyou think. You can not project while you're reading this text. Get into a steady life-rhythm. Wake up at the same time, go to bed at the same time. The body really appreciates this! Try to get as much good sleep as you can. 8 hours a night is the absolute minimum. 10 hours is much better. Get plenty of physical exercise. This will release energy blocks and thus allow energy to flow more vigorously through your body. Watch your diet! Try to stay away from arousing stuff as much as possible. No hot or spicy foods, stay low on fat. No coffee or chocolate (try herbal tea instead) and ABSOLUTELY NO ALCOHOL! Trying to project while under the influence of this drug can get you into SERIOUS TROUBLE. Try to eat no meat, or, if this is hard for you, as little as you can. Try drinking plenty of water (no mineral water). A big mug of water with some freshly squeezed lemon juice can be a great coffee substitute at breakfast. Pick a regular time at which you may try to project. This can be at night, in the afternoon or in the morning. Just make it the same time every time. The body doesn't like surprises.
A good general rule.
Before you try to astrally project, concentrate on it. This may start hours, days or even weeks in advance. Persuade yourself that you ARE going to achieve it someday, and visualize yourself being out of the body already. This gets your being in the right frame of mind.
Make sure you will NOT be disturbed while you perform the meditation. Disconnect the phone and try to jam the door-bell. Lock your cats away, and kick everybody else out of the house. Any disturbance to this meditation (or any meditation) can be extremely annoying, and get you into a really bad mood. Pay attention to other disturbing factors. Your clothes for example. You may want to perform this mediation naked, because your clothes are too tight, or just getting in the way. Room temperature is another factor. Not too cold, not too warm. Disconnect all the electrical wiring that surrounds you. They can generate disturbing energy fields. In fact, any steel/iron/metal in and on your body
Please help and thanks for reading this... Once I can do this willingly maybe I can better understand what my dreams have been about.
