Foundations of Astral Projection for the Curious Traveller
i want to thank you too brandon. you are a seasoned traveller in this domain. and it is kind to share your expertise with us earthlings. tonite i am going to make a serious attempt at it in my bed. the rafters in this old stone farmhouse, could be good to sit up on! ill let you know. lets keep each other posted on this important work.
@Jason, Damn dude. I feel like I’ve complimented you too many times, but good stuff. Have you ever experienced AP?
the dream catcher discussion and this one should be fused now.. somehow. read what that guy had to say about the importance of dream catchers for AP. sounds like a good plan. the thread and the net.
You my friend have totally been there! I realized I should have been posting on this thread instead I ended up expanding into Astral Travel topic from the dream catcher topic.
The best if flying with birds over a sunset:)
I just want to share an experience and see if you/anyone have had an equivalent?
First foremost I explored the artistic planes, sound, music, voice…found how they fused together and how you manifest these into your dreams. Or you have the ability to pull dream creations now into the real world. Which blurs the line now. In Astral travelling it’s like bringing snippets of reality state…where you test your control of your whereabouts, motorskills. I think the main difference a regular dream seems like it’s naturally unfolding and a astral travel dream feels like you travel where you want in real time which is only bound in destination by your established comfort zone.
You can do a test like monotonous things a regular dream wouldn’t let you do. Fly up, fly down. Do it six times for no reason. etc. Then thats like the official proof you are in astral plane now.
The weirder ones are like I will test myself, by literally falling over…but I will try not to land on my face and hit the ground.
The first time you do….then you do it again. But then you try to float 1inch off the ground lying forwards. Then if you do it you realize. Wait…this is not a regular dream.
You will basically know that it feels really different. And your almost conscious of your consciousness. Like you can hear yourself narrate what will happen next. Then it happens. It can be startling. Then you think you are awake or sleep walking but you’re not.
This is weird for me because..and not..but in the sense that I have never talked to anyone about this topic to the amount that you have just stated I feel this kindredness. Flight at the speed of freewill of thought.
Like hey I was in that country too it’s awesome. Wait what about customs and passports? Oh yeah! That’s just an imaginary line us humans have created go wherever you want! But yes it’s kinda a galactic country with no exact google maps location as of yet.
It gets really interesting the more you go and get better at it:)

wow man that’s awesome, I’d love to compare AP notes and share experiences with you some time. it’s nice to see that there are people I could talk to about this practice, as I know no one else in my town that does this, who I could connect with about that
definitely continue expanding you astral horizons man, shoot, we may meet eachother out there one day
@Fyrirrek; incredible post. I especially love “Flight at the speed of freewill of thought.”!
Also, I have heard claims of “astral meetings”, but I have yet to experience them myself.
@fyrirrek and @ uncle brandon

@Brandon Pinkney, What do you enjoy doing in the astral plane? If I ever manage it I would love to fly, I had a dream about flying once and it was epic.

I’d like to see a thread called “The Physiological Foundations of Astral Projection.”
If I become lucid in one of my dreams, can I enter the astral plane or is that already happening once lucid? @hlalhabattu,

@mindlessfreak30 I’d say that lately I’ve been more about noticing energy shifts and such…really interesting stuff
@blankey possibly, I’e never tried it though, so I can only suggest seeing for yourself once the opportunity arises but I’d say as a rule of thumb, you need to be awake and fully conscious otherwise the astral projection loses it’s control, potentially
I’ve been looking for some decent advice on this type of stuff. Thanks man, great post!
I have a question though, about the entities. Say I leave my body and there is an entity in my room with me. Will he acknowledge me? Or will I have to acknowledge him first? I’ve heard stories about people having trouble with demons or bad spirits and I want to be able to know how to handle that. Have you ever encountered a bad spirit yourself? If so, how did that go? Just wanna be prepared before I step into another world.
@hlalhabattu, So last night I laid down and meditated for about 20 or so minutes. I then entered that stage of where my body feels like it is vibrating and there was an intense energy flowing through my body. I could feel my astral body trying to project and yet I got too scared and my heart starting pumping fast and then the energy feeling went away.
Any tips on maintaining relaxation and finally letting go of your body?
@fyrirrek, I’ve had experiences like that in dreams where the dream is naturally flowing then something happens that I don’t like so I “rewind” to the start and keep playing out the same thing. But for some reason my consciousness hasn’t taken over yet and made me realize that I am dreaming I just wake up the next morning like “damn, that was a dream”. How do you think that I could get myself to start realizing that I am dreaming instead of the dream just continuing?

@cambam, I haven’t personally encountered any entities myself, but it’s to my understanding they are kind of a curious, neutral force. while some ma wish to interact with you in some way, others may pay you no mind. as a precaution, however, I always encase my physical and astral body in a protective field of white light, that repels anything that tries to interact with you
@blankey, it’s not a particularly hard process, it just requires a lot of patience and willpower. Id say to start out, try to focus on only getting parts out one at a time, e.g. the right foot. once you have gotten comfortable leaving your body in this way, you shoukd be able to leave in one push much easier. but the biggest thing to be aware of is not putting too much strain on yourself, as this can breed frustration which in the blink of an eye, can bring you right back to square one. it’s much easier said than done, but the key is to stay as relaxed as possible, and things should go smoother for you once you get the hang of it. also worth mention: chances are, after you’ve become accustomed to leaving and travelling, don’t be surprised if you hit a rough patch, where you can’t really project fully, or you can’t “see” these happen to everybody at some point, the main reason being that in your familiarity with projection, you’d have probably skipped a step, because you wanted to move things along quicker. hope this helped
I heard the intense ringing!!! but I wasn’t ready… I was having a wild crazy dream and within it I started to become lucid, Its like the 2nd time I’ve ever been able to realize I’m dreaming. As soon as I realized this though, and when I wanted to change stuff I just started to feel as if my body in the dream was floating up and the scene just grayed out. I was thinking to myself aww man I finally get lucid and the dream grays out on me lol. Then it happened the intense ringing and serge of energy almost that I’ve read about, and I realized that I was laying in my bed and that I must be starting to go astral. I didn’t want to at the moment I just had the crazy dream and then finally getting lucid I think was enough for me that I didn’t want to go just then. So I managed to stop it by opening my eyes and sitting up, there was a brief moment though when it felt like I was waving my arms around, but my body never actually moved, so maybe I started to separate partially? I’m not sure it was very brief right before I actually sat up.
This is the second time I’ve had the “signs of separation” the first time it was only a vibrational buzzing of the body and sound, but this time it was just such an intense ringing. I kind of regret that I always get freaked out and not allow it to just happen. I think partially its because I wasn’t sure if I actually believed in it when I first started trying, but now that the signs have shown these few times its almost too real for me and I’m afraid of getting spooked out by something. I should just man up I guess haha and try it at least once to just let it happen, maybe I’ll get another shot soon.
How can a beginner encase themselves in the protection you talk about? I’m considering giving it a shot, but the thought of something messing with my body while I’m away from it really freaks me out.
@antu, I believe these are merely projections of yourself, so no need to be frightened.
Oh and I tried this earlier today, I felt my astral body leave for about 2 seconds and maybe a few inches from my regular body but then I got too scared of the sensations it was giving me and snapped out of it. I need to overcome my fears.
@blankey, Could one of those selves hijack my body? O.o
@antu, Nope. I believe the act of putting this barrier around you just makes you “feel” safe, when in reality, you always are. So I guess, it doesn’t hurt to put this barrier around you, and if you forget, I wouldn’t worry :)
@blankey, Yeah the sensations are so intense…I wish I could just let them be.
@antu, From what I’ve heard when you are outside that you are still connected to your body through a silver cord, almost like an umbilical cord. This cord can stretch out to any length and you can always pop back into your body and nothing can affect your body because of this.
What if I mess up and don’t make it back to my physical body? Will I essentially be dead?
@adammastermind, Apparently you always make it back. There’s some string holding you to your body and when you die apparently it breaks. Although, I have never experienced this so I don’t know for certain.
Has anyone had any successes?
at least a full hour of entertainment and more importantly, information on Astral Travel/ Out of Body Experiences… and even personal accounts from masters of this thing like Steven LaBerge.
