It is clear that through astral projection we can do many things. We can speak with friends and family that are living, we can connect with beings that are long dead, we can connect with our spirit or animal guides, beings from other dimensions, or we can just fly around and see the world and the Universe.
Before we go into techniques it is important for us to know the difference between normal sleep and astral projection. When we sleep, our soul leaves our body. Literally it leaves our 3D physical reality. The thing is, we do not have control over what our soul does when it leaves our body while we sleep because our subconscious controls it. When we astral project, we are able to consciously control our soul, and where it goes. So, the astral projection is basically just Conscious Sleep. We also should be aware that there are hundreds or thousands different techniques to get our soul out of body. We are all unique. We should also understand that if one technique works for some people, for others it may not.
