I'll start you off with a mini-tutorial, as my job prevents me from being a full-time guide (Feel free to drop me a message on here, and I'll send
over my official email - I can be a guide on non-working hours).
1. According to most of the major literature on the subject (most of the common literature, that is), it is possible to communicate with other
2. There are several "layers" to an astral projection. The ones that you will often here are the "Astral Plane" (where all the different entities
seem to reside), the "etheric" plane (supposedly, this is a reality that is almost the same as our physical world, except for subtle differences),
and the physical plane (where you are now).
Another one that is sometimes mentioned is the "lower" astral planes, which is believed to be the closest to the physical in some literature (this
is where spirits, emotions, and thoughts can manifest).
3. Just like anywhere else, there are negative entities, or NEGs (Robert Bruce, Astral Dynamics
), but don't think of them as demons. Rather,
think of them as bullies (if they feel you aren't going to put up with them, then they will leave you alone).
4. You don't need sleep paralysis, the "vibrational state" (named for the weird effects people experience when in sleep paralysis) or even
meditation to astral project, as all it takes is a little willpower.
One of the easiest methods to induce an OBE is to attempt every time you wake up at night. You know that warm, fuzzy feeling that occurs when you're
about to fall asleep? Instead of focusing on the sleep part, try remembering to astral project, or focus on something that isn't in the same room as
you. If done enough times, you might find yourself standing or floating next to that object.
5. Don't get discouraged, because some people are able to do this naturally, and others never find a way to do it (I always had uncontrolled
projections, and am only now starting to find a repeatable method).
6. One thing that gave me immediate results (as in, two conscious projections within two days of each other), was done with the following method:
-Get a set of earbud headphones, and either an MP3 player, CD player, computer, etc.
-Get in bed, and lie on your back (unless you have a couple speakers nearby, then get in your favorite sleeping position).
-Pick some music that you can tolerate listening to for extended periods (I used all of Dvorak's symphonies in one playlist), and start the CD before
you go to sleep.
-As you go to "sleep", focus on the music, and try to sync your breathing with the music. If you have to focus on something other than the music,
focus on slowing your breathing without restricting your airflow.
-At some point, you will either experience sleep paralysis, or find yourself dreaming. If you are dreaming, then try a traditional method to get
NOTE: Make sure you take a break between using this method, as the body will attempt to "tune out" the music about a week after you get used to the
method (basically, it becomes background noise after a while).
7. When you do actually have a conscious experience, try to get used to moving around first (I actually devoted one whole conscious experience to
floating around; I might've been wasting time, but the next time I was able to control my movements better).
