Different people have certain talents, gifts, and abilities that are unique to them. For instance, there are artists and musicians who come up with impeccable masterpieces and amazing sound. On the other hand, there are also gifted writers who can take their readers as far as their imagination can go. Still, there are also those who are blessed with supernatural capabilities, such as having an insight of what the future holds, or even having an out of this world experience like an astral projection.
All About Astral Projection
Astral projection is an out of the body experience that can both be involuntary or practiced at will. In terms of the former, people who leave their physical bodies do so during a near-death experience. However, there are experts that say that most individuals have regular out of the body experience while sleeping, hovering just a few inches above their physical bodies.
Astral Projection at Will
There are people who can leave their physical bodies at will and harness their powers to explore the astral plane. The astral plane is a dimension without bounds and where all elements exist, including the purest of energy. People who perform astral projection on their own will do so in order to achieve telepathy by freeing their soul and interacting with another free soul. As a result, they are able to delve into each other’s consciousness and communicate without using any known physical human sensory channels. If you are curious about how you can experience astral projection intentionally, the steps below will provide you with a good insight.
The first thing that you need to do to delve into an out of the body experience is to properly prepare for it. Some say that the best hour is at night right before you doze off, but others suggest that starting in the wee hours of the morning when you are still feeling drowsy is much better. Nevertheless, it is possible for your soul to leave your body and travel at any time of the day, as long as you feel empowered to do so.
As part of your preparation, make sure that you create the right environment that can induce a state of deep relaxation. Draw the curtains of your room if you must and ensure that you are free from any noise or distraction. Most individuals find it easier to perform astral projection alone because they are able to fully clear their mind and just focus on their bodies.
Leaving your Body
As you slowly sink into a deep and relaxed state, your body and mind will approach sleep, but be wary of losing complete consciousness. To do so, focus on a certain body part and use your mind to move that particular body part until you feel like it is physically moving. Slowly focus on other parts of your body and do the same until you feel like you are already able to move your entire body using your mind alone. This will lead to a state of vibration wherein your soul prepares to leave your body. Your astral projection is successful if you feel as though you are looking over your physical body from across the room.
Exploring the Astral Plane
Once your soul leaves your physical body, you already have the capability to explore the astral plane. Try leaving your room and exploring other parts of your house, examining physical objects keenly. It may be difficult in the beginning, but as soon as you master the art of astral projection, you will even have the opportunity to wander to locations that are less familiar to you.
Returning to your Body
Experts say that there are certain dangers in practicing astral projection such as having difficulty in breathing, or even death of the physical body because the soul was not able to make it back in time. Rest assured that you will experience no harm unless you think that it may because of fear. For your peace of mind, protect your physical body by blessing your room with prayer before your out of the body experience.
To wrap things up, leaving your physical body to travel in the astral plane is referred to as astral projection. If you are keen on practicing this intentionally, you need to have the proper preparation to reach a certain hypnotic state. This will allow you to leave your body and explore the astral plane before returning to your physical state. Just keep in mind that astral projection is a gift that only a few can perfectly master.
