Advice On Astral Projection


So I've always known I had some sort of psychic ability and I found out I that I'm an empath. So naturally I've be using my abilities more and more, but I always wanted to astral project and I'd like to know if that's possible for an empath? I've tried but I feel when I feel myself start to float out of my body I get yanked right back into myself.

I do my relaxing technique and I clear my mind, but I have an issue about releasing. I feel myself getting lighter and lighter but when I reach that critical moment that I'm just about to exit my body I feel myself get yanked back into myself like my body just realized I was about to leave and it doesn't let me? It's weird like I want to astral project but then I get scared as I'm just about to do it. Also it hurts! While I'm getting lighter I feel like I'm being poked really hard from the inside and I also feel a rippling inside of myself and then I get yanked back inside.: (

I would really appreciate if someone gave me some advice on this, because it's something I really want to do. I just want to see how it is, I've always wanted to do this, but I truly don't know how. I hear that the astral plane is different for everyone and that you see things you couldn't imagine, and me being the curious person I am feel in love with this ability.

P.s I was wondering why do some people refer to psychic energy as psi and others mana and others magic? It's really confusing. And again it help me so much if someone would give me advice. Thank you

Only thing I know from astral projection is focus on the thing you want and relax others say you can scratch if you itch others say you can't they say act like your climbing a rope or something. Real astral projection is for example if you see somebody and describe them in the real world or something and if your correct that's astral projection.

Thank you guys so much! It means a lot, and to TheQuestioner I want to do this because I want to experience it, it's the type of person I am that I want to explore and be apart of things I've never been apart of before. And Tyler86 that is a lot to learn lol woow it's a lot. But what are these other beings are they spirits or inter dimensional creature not from our realm? So much to learn wish I had a teacher.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.

Section V (5) of this talks about an astral projection technique. One of the first instructions is "let the preliminary purifications, banishings and invocations be duly accomplished." The point being, if you're having trouble astral-projecting (or even if you're not), try setting up some sort of shield or protection before attempting it. One such shield is given in the above article, if you're so inclined to use it. If the instructions are unclear, just Google "LBRP."

Another thing you can do to reassure yourself is read descriptions of other people's astral projections. That way you can see if what you're feeling is quite normal or something that is a particular obstacle in your case.

As for why different people call things differently, it is simply the way language works. In fact, people may be using different terms and referring to the same thing, or they may be saying the same word but meaning completely different things. You just have to guess from context or ask them to clarify. For example, psi and ki and chi may mean the same thing, while "soul" can mean several different things (the ego, the higher self, etc...). What's the difference between "go up" and "ascend"?

Love is the law, love under will.

This thing hurts? Beings feed off of you? This is definitley something that makes me really afraid. Why would you go there if there is a possiblity that something could eat your energy? Or that you may not survive? How would you even get out of there anyways?

Astral Projection will happen when the time is right. It is not something you can just jump into, as it deals more with the soul than it does with the mental and physical reality. When one is able to explore the astral plane it means they have reached a new level of soul-development. Everything is a test, is it not? Just make sure you are properly prepared before you decide to roam around in a place of various multidimensional beings. However, I am sure you are aware of what it is you wish to experience. I wish you the best of luck, my friend. May you achieve all of your goals.

P.S - Just to be safe, I recommend you educate yourself on a few things, such as psi-conics, parapsychology, healing, protection and shielding, channeling, metaphysical properties of crystals, energy manipulation, etc.

I will explain astral projection a little. Astral projection is the minds formation of energy in the shape of your body (of course you can always change your shape in astral if you wanted to). Here your mind controls this energy allowing you to move about freely either in this world or other realms. Many people though subconciously move the to astral realm, most likely something to do with the energy used to project or some underlining unverisal law. Anyway, upon reaching this realm you can do whatever you like for the most part, the only problem is that like here there, there is creatures that only exist in the realm that need energy like an other organism. And unlike us who get our energy from food here, they need to get energy from food there. So most of them track down beings with high energy such as projectors, and feed on them. Sometimes even follow the projector back to their body, where they will feed until full or you run out of consumable energy.

In conclusion, I would like to say that the astral realm is linked to the spirit world, and its multi levels, you simple just need to find the gate.

Yea but thanks I had no idea that there were different ways of separating yourself from your body. And yea I really wish someone who has a lot of experience with astral projection would help out.

I have also had issues with astral projection, specifically the separation part. I too feel extremely light but when it comes to it I have an extremely difficult time separating from my body. I recommend researching different separation techniques such as the rope climbing technique, falling through your body and spinning you body around like a wheel, rolling out, etc. Also, for you, it might just be the fear stopping you from being able to do it. You should take time to reflect and understand your emotions and why you fear leaving your body. Fear is the biggest inhibition anyone can set upon themselves, so it is important to come to terms with your fears and understand why you feel them so that you may ultimately conquer and be rid of them. Then you can fully exercise free will and the power of your consciousness. If it is based on the fear of the unknown that is found in the astral, it might be a good idea to read more about astral projecting and others' experiences and to also get advice from someone who has projected many times, etc, but that's why you posted this story anyways right
