A Few Lines About Me
I am Abhishek Agarwal - a very regular guy, just like most of you. I was not born with any extraordinary powers, nor do I have a mystical family background! When I was just 16 years old, I stumbled upon Astral Projection absolutely by chance. And after a lot of trials, errors and failures, I finally learnt how to Astral Project at will. I have now been Astral Traveling and Lucid Dreaming since the last 15 years. Needless to say, it has been an exciting and enchanting journey throughout!
1. What is Astral Projection?
Astral Projection or Out-of-body experience is a process through which our consciousness
leaves our physical body and is free to travel anywhere, unrestricted by our normal physical boundaries. We all unconsciously travel outside our bodies every night when we are asleep. But with the right guidance and practice, we can train ourselves to achieve this with 100% consciousness and awareness.
2. Is everyone able to do Astral Projection?
As I mentioned, everyone does Astral Traveling at night when they sleep. But since they are
asleep, they are doing it unconsciously. And when they wake-up, their astral experiences get distorted and they feel they have just had a dream.
But with training and guidance, almost anyone can have a conscious Astral Projection.
3. When one does Astral Traveling, what is it that "projects" out of his body?
We are made up of several bodies. The grossest and the densest body is our physical body.
The next one is the etheric body or the astral body. This is much less dense compared to the physical body. So during Astral Traveling, it is the astral body that gets “projected”.
I should also mention that for each these bodies, there is a corresponding “plane”. So there is a physical plane, astral plane and so on. So during Astral Projection, the astral body is projected
into the astral plane.
4. Should we be really doing Astral Projection?
When we are born on this physical plane, we all come with a specific purpose. That purpose
may be different for different people. But as we grow older, we forget why we are here. So we wander aimlessly and often end up wasting our lives.
Astral Projection is one way to help us know why we are here in the first place. So I sincerely feel we all should learn this amazing art and give a positive direction to our lives.
5. How much does Astral Projection cost?
You would be surprised, but there were actually 4 people who asked me this question!
The answer is - Astral Projection doesn’t cost you anything in terms of money. It is not
something that you purchase. It is an art that you learn. The only real cost involved is your time, effort and dedication.
6. What is the best, easiest, infallible and fastest method that works for everyone?
Everyone is different, with different personalities and beliefs. So unfortunately, there is no best and easiest method that works for everyone. There are hundreds of Astral Projection techniques available. You need to see which one suits you best.
7. What are the best visualization techniques for reaching the vibration stage quickly?
As I said earlier, there is no best technique that will help everyone to achieve the vibration stage. However, Robert Monroe’s vibration technique is the most popular since many people have reported great success with it.
8. How can I learn to project quickly without having to take herbs such as Salvia
I never recommend taking herbs or drugs to achieve Astral Projection. It is safest to practice without any external aids.
Also, unfortunately, there is no “quick” way to achieve Astral Projection. You will require
patience and dedication. But if you follow the right guidance, you can drastically cut down on your learning curve, and often see success in a few weeks instead of years.
Also, I would recommend staying away from anyone who claims to teach you “techniques” that
can help you project “instantly”
9. How to get into a trance easily for intentional OBEs
A good way to get into a trance is to comfortably lie down at night, and watch yourself going to sleep. Try to relax your physical body, but at the same time, try not to go to sleep.
For the first few nights, you might end up sleeping. But with practice, you will learn how to control your mind and stay awake during the entire process.
10. Can Astral Projection actually be done?
Yes, Astral Projection is definitely possible, and can actually be done consciously. There are thousands and thousands of people who can do it at will.

Does Lucid Dreaming feel more real and physical than an Astral Projection?
In truth, lucid dreaming and astral projection are only two ways of gaining access to the realms of the astral. Lucid dreamers simply miss the conscious out-of-the-body (OOBE) experience. In both cases, you are totally aware. In case of lucid dreams, your control over your dreams depends on your expertise in lucid dreaming. In case of astral projection, one is totally aware and can fully control what one does.
In case of astral projection, you might enter the astral realms bearing restrictive thoughts and beliefs that have no value in the astral realms and do not function there. You will need some time to learn the ways of the new world you have stepped into. In case of lucid dreaming, you are not restricted by any boundaries and you know it. The sheer freedom and expansiveness of a lucid dream might make you lose focus and thereby lose lucidity. Just as you have to practice to get used to the astral world, you have to practice to maintain the lucidity of a lucid dream.
In lucid dreaming, you are at your creative best, which is why you can create any experience and any scenario with ease. In case of an astral projection, your focus is more on exploring unknown realms than on creating scenarios for wish fulfillment.

If it's while meditating, then yes you are getting closer to your goal. You will successfully project, honestly I suggest using some binaural beats they help a lot, at least for me they do. Make sure to use headphones and use in a setting where you'll be alone and undisturbed. And obviously don't use while driving or anything.
