RiverGoddess requested I add this material to this massive thread, so here goes.
For those of you that have such difficulty, have you looked at your diets?
Could be caffeine, nicotine, indigestion is taking up to much of your bodies ability to relax.
Another factor is how much time between using your computer or watching the idiot box and trying to project. You computer monitor and your TV screen
emit frequencies that change your metabolism, and mess with interal concentration in general.
Here are some techniques that I hope can help you.
1) most important, attempt projection everywhere. You should learn to visualize your "body of light", which can be an idealized version of your
soul, the generic bald and naked astral body might work, but also your own interpretation of this "entity" can help reinforce your awareness of
Before you open a door, visualize your astral body extending from the physical and doing it first.
Remember to do this with all your physical activity, when and where possible.
You don't even have to close your eyes to do this.
The more you do this the more comfortable with your astral self you will become.
2) Become physically sensitive and practice your physical senses. Go around your home, touch, smell, listen, and observe your sense of taste (don't
lick stuff), as you do this. Become very familiar
with your own personal environment. When you are kicking back and relaxing, repeat this exercise as if your astral body was going around your place
touching, smelling, listening to everything. Later while attempting to project, develop an inner environment of your own creation and practice sensing
everything you add to it as if it was something you actually possess in the physical.
3) : Ritual. It can be a prayer, it can be an occult ritual, it can be mundane actions, but do it over and over again, every single day with the
conscious intent "this is what I do before I project" until it becomes so natural that it takes no effort to remember what you have to do next. Its
like breathing, you don't have to think about it, the impulse is natural, you have to practice some impulses to make them natural, like riding a bike
and keeping your balance.
Same with projection, the "supernatural" experience of it can snap you back if you do not percieve the action as natural, so practice makes
4) Find a fragance that you will use to specifically induce the astral experience, don't keep it with you everywhere or your brain will learn to
ignore it. Use it when you are specifically trying to develop your astral skills. You will eventually associate this scent with your astral self, and
if you come across it in your waking life, you will feel a "lift" just from the scent.
5) keep a diary, record everything in it, no matter how bizarre or disappointing your attempts are, keep the diary, it helps to externalize what you
are doing internally.
6) Imagine you are in the company of anyone of your favorite entities. Anywhere you go.
These entities are not "real" in the sense that they have any concern with the physical or spiritual world as we conceive them. They are your own
vision spirituality, an inherit part of yourself.
Use the imagery to anchor yourself in the astral, so it doesn't seem so void before your sense can
perceive it clearly. Have a conversation with them, don't be surprised if you don't get an answer, and don't take anything they say too literally
if you do get an answer, they are only a projection of your own inner thinking that you would otherwise ignore and forget. Write down the conversation
in your diary. I repeat, do not take anything they say as literal, they are absolutely only a reflection of your self, your ego, your ideals, and all
of that evolves over time.
Your diary will make you laugh in no time at all.
9) Learn to love what you hate, in the astral. Don't like GW Bush? imagine your giving him a hug and a kiss in the astral. Been burned once or twice?
Do it again in the astral, walk through fire, spontaneously combust. Afraid of ghosts, become one in the astral (this is a spooky one, due to cultural
Condition yourself to conquer fear. Annihilate the concept of good and evil, the astral plane and all that exists in it is 100% neutral, like
sunlight, in the greater scheme of things, our concepts of good and evil are absolutely meaningless. There is order and there is chaos and they
co-exist only because of each other, without one or the other there is nothing at all. This understanding is important so that your mind does not
project your sense of "evil entity" in front of you, scaring you, and bouncing you back into your physical shell. Its a defense mechanism, or a
"test" if you will, only those without fear may pass a certain point. Fear in the physical has its purpose, like "hey if I go to work naked I'll
be fired!", in the astral fear useless baggage like your hair or clothes. Learn to leave it behind.
8) Die. Yes you read that right. Learn to deal with the death of your physical body, imagine it in all possible means of carnage and sickness, always
ending with your soul leaving your body.
Sounds morbid, but face it, you are not immortal, as soon as you have faced every conceivable death experience your mind can fathom, you will not be
scared out of your wits the moment you float
away from that shell you have become so accustomed to. I don't suggest this for anyone who is depressed or even has the slightest hint of "my life
is empty and I've nothing to live for".
The fact is one out of four people is mentally ill. Ignore this step if you are one of them.
The funny thing about this step is, you probably will never be able to actually conceive
the time and means of your death out of all your imaginings.
9) Adopt a new language, religion, or cultural practice. Doesn't really matter what it is, but use this specifically to break away from all that you
It is a growth process, and inititaion process. It is mentally stimulating and also helps you overcome any latent fear of change or the unknown.
You don't have to become a religious convert or devote yourself to a "new god" to adopt a new religion, simply learn about it, accept it as a valid
means of spiritual human expression, learn and practice the actions they perform and let yourself grow.
Stagnating with what you have been taught, or what you think you know, is also
stagnating your spiritual growth. If you incorporate these things as your part of your tools
to project, it will enhance your experience. Religion is only a step on the road to spiritual awareness, not the final destination.
Avoid any cult types that want you to give up your money or possessions and live with them, avoid anyone anywhere that tries to dictate your sex life,
these are vital steps of mind control, be aware of them. Because of this, adopting a new language and using it in your ritual to attain projection is
much safer, and just as effective. The language you know use daily carries with it all the memories of its use, even subconsciously. For instance if I
say "Breast", your brain starts firing messages, many of which you are not aware of, but they have an effect on you. But if I say "seno", you
brain has no idea what it means until you purposely create a reference for the word, with your own intentional relationship with the word.
Does that make sense? Basically its the difference between the profound and the profane, the mundane and the unique. It also makes your mind work
harder to keep your ritual consistant, instead of relying on laziness. The other benefit is that you will most likely not experience your personal
ritual being mocked and ridiculed in most forms of media. For instance, the lord's prayer is just about played out in every horror film, mobster
movies, and just any motion picture with religion, as well as punk and heavy metal songs. If you have experience any of these, your subconscious is
well aware of these images in relation to the prayer, making it fairly ineffective for the purpose here.
Ok, well I hope this helps someone.
