They must protect your body during the OOBE. A major risk anyone needs to consider when Astral Projecting is ghost infestation. If you are not adequately protected, a ghost is, according to my sources, 50% more likely to possess you during Astral Projection.
From my experience i belive that is impossible. Your body is your body, you are connected to it at all times, it is attuned to your personal vibration and at the first sign of something untowards happening WHHHOOOOOSH you're right back in there. Ghosts are entitys trapped in their own little worlds, not aware of the fact that they have died. Ghosts reside in the etheric plane, not the astral, which is a difficult place to get to as its vibration is a lot closer to our usual everyday plane of existence. There are "things" that lurk out there but they cannot hurt you in anyway, unless of course you let them. I have experienced an attack from these creatures whilst in the astral, but because i "knew" that they could not harm me i totally vanquished them.
The worst enemy in the astral is your own fear as I understand it can manifest there. No fear no problems. But a form of protection is always a good idea, i find a bubble of white light is the best defence against anything undesireable. You can ask your guides for this or simply just visulise it being there and you will be good.

I'm 17 years old...I first heard about OOBE/Astral Projection about 3 years ago. I read up about it on the internet for weeks. (One site I found particularly informative was www.astralvoyage.com...). Anyway, I've tried several different methods of leaving my body, but nothing seems to work. I've never even gotten to the vibration stage. Usually when I try to do it, I lay down on my bed, flat on my back, with my arms to the side. I then close my eyes and basically try to relax my body as much as possible. Once I feel completely relaxed, I try to clear my mind, focus on my third eye, and imagine I'm weightless. But for some reason, nothing ever happens. Sometimes I'll get to a point where I can no longer feel my body, but still, nothing else happens. I've tried several different techniques that I've read online, but still no luck. Anyone wanna tell me what I'm doing wrong?
This is something I'd really like to achieve, and I truely believe its possible based on what I've read from others. Sometimes it just seems hopeless though...
