I got very interested in this last year and myself and a co-worker/friend started trying to do it.
It was very frustrating at first as it was very hard for me to clear my mind and the techniques that I read about never seemed to work.
Another person overheard us talking about it one day, and he was very experienced in AP so he gave me a technique and after many tries (and some
improvisation) it finally worked for me.
I will not go into detail about the entire experience, but will post what helped me actually AP.
This guy instructed us to use the hallway and door technique. Clear your mind, quiet dark place and visualize a hallway and then a door at the end of
I failed at this as every time I tried to form the hallway it would start to come into my minds eye and then as it narrowed and formed and I would try
and see the door i would lose it.
I decided I would just try and visualize the door first and then make the hallway, I could not get the door in my mind clear either.
Finally one night, as I lay there saying over and over "there is a door, there is a door" thinking about the door just over and over, finally all of a
sudden the most vivid detailed lightly glowing blueish green wooden door was floating right in front of me. (note: I could still feel myself in the
bed and I was concious and not sleeping yet.)
I said well screw it, I am just going to open it. I did and there was the hallway, with another door at the end. This was very vivid and I still was
concious of myself laying in bed.
At this point I had been instructed to put myself in the hallway and begin to walk toward the door, focusing on the physical feeling of my muscles
working as I walked and the feel of the floor and so on. As I did this I began to disconnect from the reality of laying in the bed.
Then the panic feeling set in, as I began to feel a tingling in my whole body and especially my face.... It scared me so much it made me lose focus
and return to laying in my bed. I was so furious at myself in that split second as I did not want to lose the moment, I immediately told myself, I
would go back and force myself through the fear.
And thats what I did.. I put myself right back in the hallway and began walking... The detail of the walls was amazing and i still remember how it
felt to walk...the tingling and epic fear returned, and I made myself keep walking and concentrating on the feeling of my muscles moving and the
detail of the hallway and it got more intense and the fear was very intense...then I lost all sensation of myself in the bed and I was totally
conscious in the hallway.
From there I moved on to the door and what lied beyond. I dont want to ruin your experience so I will leave those details out, but maybe this
technique will work for you.
I havent had the time to try anymore because I havent really thought about it, as I have been very busy lately. Maybe I will give it another go.
edit: reading the persons post above me I just realized I left out the heavy feeling. It was very intense and combined with the tingling, sends you
into a panic. Many websites talk about this (none of which I read until after I acutally projected). =). Push through the fear when it comes,
because chances are it will. Just tell yourself you will not die and it will be ok and just push through it, when you get to that point.
