Astral Projection - My Experimental Method


A little while ago, I was starting to get the hang of astral projection. I had read all the basics (Robert Monroe, William Buhlman, Robert Bruce, AnneV, and others), and began working on my techniques.

My first technique that I used was what I dubbed the "Hemi-Sync" technique (basically, listen to a guided meditation before falling asleep, sometimes with binaural beats). What I found was that it didn't matter what kind of music or beats were listened to; all that was needed was something to focus on. So I revised the technique, as sometimes those binaural beats would give me a headache. For those that wish to try it, here's a basic set of steps:

1. Get ready for bed like you normally do. I try to get myself relaxed via stretching.

2. Use your computer, CD player, wireless headphones, MP3 Player to play some kind of music that you like. Whatever you pick, make sure the total playtime is in the vicinity of an hour (I found that I would be in the "right" state of mind for an astral projection in about 40 minutes).

3. Start the music, close your eyes, and try to lie still as much as possible. While doing so, focus on the music, and less on your body or your breathing.

4. As you keep focusing on the music, you may start to experience odd or weird sensations (such as the music suddenly getting louder, tingling in your limbs, or the start of a dream). The important thing is to keep "focused" on the music without being totally "focused".

As an example of what I'm talking about - Think about a busy classroom or office. You are "aware" of the other people talking, but aren't really "focusing" on the noise.

This technique helped me, in that I was able to have a couple astral projections doing it (In one of them, I tried seeing what my astral body looked like - imagine a human-shaped container filled with blue, purple, and gold glitter).

Anyway, I'm posting this because as a beginner, this method helped me out immensely. The key to it working is to give the mind something to focus on, which keeps your mind from "drifting off to sleep" (keeps you "awake" while your body falls asleep).

NOTE: I did notice that this method worked best for about the first couple weeks, and then it became less effective. What was happening was that my body was starting to treat the music as "background noise" (the noise you don't usually focus on, like a fan, or traffic outside). Easiest remedy is to alternate every couple weeks (two listening to music when sleeping, two weeks without).

Hope this helps some.

I've never heard of anyone using my method for " astral projection" but I just wanted to post it on here and see if anyone else has ever done/heard of this:

1: Meditate get into a deep state of relaxation
2. Imagine yourself climbing down a long ladder... Step by step...
3. When your mind is blank and all you invision is the infinite ladder, you step off and imagine the falling sensation, just like when you fall in a dream.
4. You actually expierence your body shaking like you are falling off a cliff and you start shaking.
5. You gently hit the " astral or spiritual plane" and you leave your body.

At darkassassin92,

Astral projection does NOT work like that. Remote Viewing maybe, but not astral projection.

First of all, projections very rarely takes place in the same "reality" as people in the physical world. It would take an insane amount of effort, let alone perfect timing, to even be able to get close enough to the physical to "find" a needle in a haystack. I could see a variation of the current physical world, but it wouldn't be exact.

Second, it takes timing & coordination to experience a conscious projection; I have yet to find a method that generates a 100% success rate, and have only had a handful of projections that can be classified as conscious. I'd be shocked too if I managed to find a complete stranger, somewhere in the world, in an astral projection, and got it right on my first try.

Thirdly, and I say this with no offense meant - I've got better things to do that prove my abilities to someone. When you experience the thrill knowing there's another universe to explore, one that you haven't seen in a long while, you'll understand. I'm not out to prove anything; I post my information to help others out. If I seem like a "know it all", it's because as I learn about my abilities, I don't keep that knowledge to myself - I post it here.

If you astral project and accurately guess were my dad lives and his vehicles I will be very shocked.

[To TheQuestioner]
I'm sending you an email shortly - I'd be happy to answer some of your questions (if not all) to the best of my ability. Sending the email because I tend to make my answers long.

[To Anaelyssa]
Anaelyssa, hopefully your attempt with this method (if you've tried already) works! If not, there's a million other methods to try.

[To winterdreams]
It doesn't hurt to try it - and if it doesn't work, you can modify the method (which I encourage you to do), or try one of the other ones out there.

In general, not every method works for everyone, so the ultimate goal is to find the one that works for you.

Could anyone tell me if this is safe? What is the astral plane? Why do we have it? What's in it? Could something happen to you or your body if your in the astral plane? Could you die in it? If you die in it would you die here? Could you email me at Haley_Hamsandwhich [at] so that I can ask you questions. I'd really like to know about this stuff.

I sometimes do a similar thing. I put a repetitive and slightly hypnotic song on repeat ("Sexy Chick" worked one time). And then I think about stuff or just relax or try to meditate.

I've never projected doing this, but sometimes I find myself in a sort of dreaming state. For example one time, I was partially aware that I was on my bed and yet I was able to mentally flip through a book of art paintings that I've never seen. Each of the pictures was extremely vivid and detailed and there were many of them per page except somehow I was able to see all of them. I tried to memorize at least a couple specifically because I was aware that it would be difficult to bring back the memory when I exited that state of mind. At this point I don't remember any of the pictures.

Thank you for posting this. I will try to project using your method.

Wow. This sounds like something i'd try. I've always tried astral projecting and only doing it half way. This seems like it'll help me a lot! Thanks:) 😆
