Time to chime in for me since I have seen MANY misconceptions about astral travel so far on this board.
I have been exploring the astral for the better part of a decade, maybe a little longer, and must say it is the most exciting experience of my life.
For all of you who think something bad can happen when in the astral you are extremely mistaken. Think of it like this, has anything ever taken over
your body while you were sleeping? How about your friends? Family? No? Never? Exactly. When we go to sleep, we are actually in the astral plane, just
not conciously aware of it. Occasionally yes, you may come into contact with a lower entity, but no harm can come to you. Someone earlier said astral
projection was almost as dangerous as ouija? Thats absolutely crazy, and no way in hell is it even close to being risky. You take more of a risk
driving your car to work every day, honestly.
Now, as for my method of astral projection, its more natural then anything but i'll share and hopefully it may help someone.
I lay in bed, either on my back or side, doesnt really matter, and tell myself I am going to project tonight. When falling asleep, I usually notice
either being able to see through my eyelids, certain hypnagogic sounds, or full blown sleep paralysis. These are all signs that it is time to
seperate. What I do to seperate is simple.. I roll off my bed. Some people raise out of the body, and I have even fell downwards through my bed, but
for the most part I roll out to the side and float down to the floor. Once a few seconds have passed, I open my eyes and do a few reality checks. Most
common is using certain "powers" if you will, that normally would be impossible in real life. I walk out of my bedroom through my door, and then fly
through the living room, through the wall, to the outside. Depending on which level of the astral I am in effects the colors, brightness, and
I have many threads on here talking about my astral experiences, techniques, and answering questions that people have asked. I highly suggest that you
get over your fears of seperation, although I myself had a very hard time overcoming the initial unknown. I think we automatically fear what we do not
know, and the astral is definitely something that you will never know about until you experience it.
Please, do not put into peoples heads that they are at risk while in the astral. This is one of the biggest misconceptions and obstacles people must
overcome in order to relax enough to seperate. I see no reason to say such things other then to scare people out of doing it. If anyone has questions,
I am extremely well versed on the subject and will give you honest answers to your questions. The astral is a beautiful world, and I only wish more
people would take the time and learn how to explore it.
