Astral projection. Sounds like something you may have heard on an episode of Star Trek. "Beam me up Scotty".
- But what exactly is astral projection?
- Can anyone do it?
- Do you want to do it?
Astral projection has been around for thousands of years, dating back to ancient China. Some say that we can achieve this state either awake or while we are sleeping/dreaming.
There is still argument about whether astral projection is the same as lucid dreaming. For some, they believe the two go hand in hand, while others insist that they are entirely separate entities.
Some people have claimed to be in an astral state while sleeping, hence, insisting it can be experienced while dreaming. Others argue that during lucid dreaming, you are in control of your dreams and your surroundings while during astral projection, everything around you is real and cannot be controlled.
Either way, it still deserves to be investigated to uncover the mysteries behind it.
Not everyone wants to slip out of their bodies into an astral plane but there are definitely those of us that are totally intrigued by it and would love to be able to experience it, even once.
What is Astral Projection?
First let’s understand what it means. Astral projection is when you consciously separate your soul from your body.
For some people, this process comes quite naturally, while others may have to practice a bit longer to experience it. It is commonly referred to as an out of body experience (or OBE/OOBE), however, an out of body experience can occur unconsciously as well.
It is said that approximately 5-10% of the people in the whole world have experienced it at least once.
There is a slight misconception that it is dangerous when, in fact, it’s completely safe. Before you decide to venture off to astral land, you should ask your Angel guides, spirits and/or God to protect you and keep you safe.

Can Anyone "Do" Astral Projection?
Absolutely! Just as we learn how to master a new skill, language, art, etc. we can learn how to reach astral projection.
Like anything else, it may or may not come easy. While some of us pick things up quickly, there are those of us that must practice, sometimes for years, before we master a new skill.
In order to reach the astral state you must be consistent, open minded and have a strong belief that you can achieve it.
Do I Want To Experience Astrally Projecting Myself?
Astral projection isn’t for everyone. If you’re not into out of body experiences then you probably won’t want to try this, however, the benefits are too numerous not to mention.
Here is a small list of what you can gain from astral projection.
- Fly all around the world and have fun exploring.
- Increase your self-confidence and self-knowledge.
- Gain respect for life and life after death.
- Learn, learn and then learn more about absolutely everything.
- Be more spiritual and increase your psychic abilities.
- Talk to your spirit guides.
Develop your psychic abilities - it's something that we can all do to a varying degree.
It is recommended that you should try to master meditation first, if you haven’t already, as this practice will definitely help you relax and let go of control.
We must keep in mind that our soul and body like to stay together. They don’t want to be separated from each other so in order to do this, it will take some powerful intentions on your part.
Your first time may feel slightly surreal and actually rather frightening. You must learn to relax, breathe and just go with it. It might take many tries to get it but once you have, you will want to do it all the time.
Some simple tips for achieving astral projeciton.
- Learn as much as you can about it. Understand what it is, how it will feel and if it is right for you.
- Learn to relax. Relaxation is imperative if you want to be successful in reaching the astral plane. Practice relaxing first. For some, this, in itself, is a hard skill to master.
- Learn how to concentrate and focus. If your mind is scattered and all over the place, you will have a difficult time trying to project. Try little techniques to gain focus, shut out distracting sounds and concentrate on one thing at a time (i.e. a ticking clock, the sound of an air conditioner, etc.)
