The specific methods of astral projection vary, but one thing always stays the same. No matter what astral projection methods you use, the first step is always getting focused and relaxed. You have to have a quiet mind and a mind set that will let you reach beyond your physical boundaries. Once you do this you are ready to explore the endless universe.
Focused relaxation is not easy. One must simultaneously relax every muscle and still every thought all while maintaining the presence of mind to stay conscious. The most common reason an astral projection attempt fails, in fact, is because the candidate does not maintain his or who focus through the relaxation phase of the process, and thus, simply falls asleep.
Begin to get into that relaxed state by dressing in clothes that are comfortable. Sit in a chair instead of laying down. Laying down doesn’t work well for beginners because it can often make you too likely to fall asleep instead of just getting relaxed.
Once seated comfortably, imagine that tension is a fabric bandage that has been wrapped over every inch of the body — much like a mummy – that tightly constricts even the smallest of toes. Next, imagine those small toes being unwrapped. Warm blood flow returns, as does the feeling of cool air to the skin’s surface. Imagine the same process for each individual toe until all ten toes have been “freed.”
Move up your body unwrapping the balls of the feet to the arches to the ankles and on up. You will keep moving up the body and unwrapping until you are completely free.
Now with you body relaxed and your mind still alert you are ready. You can move on to trying one of the methods of astral projection.
The principle method for astral projection is the rope method. Before beginning the relaxation phase, and individual should tack a section of twine to the ceiling just beyond reach if in a sitting position. One should then sit beneath the “rope” and reach up while closing his or her eyes in order to get a mental impression of the rope’s proximity.
Hanging the rope will let you easily find it with your astral fingers. You will float to the rope and use it as a guide once you are relaxed. In the beginning it can be a little tricky to find the rope, but after a while you will have no trouble doing so. Just remember to be focused.
After finding the rope, concentrate on pulling the astral self up and out of the physical body as if climbing up the length of rope. Imagine the process without regard for weight, as the astral body is weightless and can climb effortlessly. A sense of dizziness may occur at this point, but it’s important to ignore this feeling, otherwise one may jeopardize the projection attempt.
Keep on moving up the rope until your astral body is completely free of your physical body. Ignore everything you may feel like dizziness, heaviness or warmth. Things like that are normal. In fact, these sensations are just a natural part of astral projection.
You may also hear of slight variations of the rope method. Some of these include the lift method of lifting the astral body out and hovering above the physical body. There is the roll out method of rolling out of the body to end up beside the body, mostly done when lying down. The fixed and moving anchor methods are two other methods.
In the former, one visualizes a stationary object toward which one then tries to pull oneself, while with the latter, one visualizes feeling the magnetic pull of the object, and thus exits the physical body. Once separated in this way, an individual’s astral body is free to explore all of time and space.
It’s important to know that as with any new endeavor, it takes time and practice to learn this process, so it’s important to remain positive if one’s first attempts at astral projection do not succeed. An unsuccessful attempt may be due to a variety of causes such as too much stimuli in the room, insufficient relaxation, or just the opposite, too much exhaustion in the body to control at a particular time.
If you are really dedicated then your astral projection methods should come easier sooner. You should find it easy to figure out any issues you have and master the techniques. Eventually, you will find it easy to step out of your physical body and explore the universe.
