We can explain the term Astral Projection as out – of – body experience or shortly OBE. This phenomenon testifies for the existence of an ‘astral body’ which is separated from the physical real body and is ‘traveling’ through the time and space. This kind of spirit falls apart from the body and is able to travel in the Universe to meet another body in the same condition. When we experience this phenomenon we can widely see the possibilities that are settle in the Universe.
The astral realm is a vast dimension of existence, and contains life in abundance. It does not operate by the very same laws of the Earth realm, and so many things that are quite impossible on Earth, are quite commonplace in the astral. Mind over matter is common. Colors are more beautiful, and we may experience endless fascination with new and exciting things that there are to see and discover.
People that are able to experience this appearance, can go to distant locations, they can touch objects, observe situations and are able to memorize every detail, so when the spirit comes back in the body this person can wake up and retell every step from his journey. This appearance has a big impact on the person that experiences it, it is beautiful and fulfilling and it can be learned how to achieve it and how to be controlled.
This concept of Astral Projection is connected with the astral dimension which is the closest to the physical. This astral dimension is represented as a huge mind net which contains memories, experiences, dreams, thoughts and fantasies from all living creatures on the earth. These creations can be so perfect so we couldn’t distinguish them from real events.
Some people believe that somewhere in the mind exists a connection between the physical and the spiritual part of the person that allows the person to function as a whole. That bond is a very important element that provides safe touch with the consciousness after the astral journey.
There are some methods that can be used to achieve astral journey, but they can be used only if there are present the elements of astral projection.
First of all we need comfort; the body needs to be relaxed and calm. The environment is very important factor. Appropriate and controlled breathing can relax your mind and body. The body uses appropriate the energy to initiate the astral journey, the energy is transmitted through vibrations. The electrical charges are passing through the body. The complexity of the process depends on the level of concentration that you are having at the moment.
Astral projection has the ability to open your mind for unexpected things and experiences. The most important thing is to practice to relax your mind and to surrender to the moment.
OBE can be successfully learned and trained with usage of some machines and devices, exercises or experiments. There some people that can help you and they have written books in which the process is explained in details. You just need to follow the instructions step by step.
In this process the state of consciousness is very important factor. The reality can be created by thought projection into the physical gird. The person needs deep relaxation, clear mind, concentration and energy body stimulation. To reach successful astral projection the person needs delicate balance of mind, body and spirit. Because all human been are different, the period of time that is necessary to achieve this balance varies greatly from person to person.
Astral projection is a term that is used in esotericism in order to describe a willful out-of-body experience as a supposed form of telepathy between the soul and body.
In the moment when the conscious mind leaves the physical body it moves into the astral body and that process enables the astral journey. The person is able to move to any place, to encounter thing and objects, to touch them, the person is consciously aware about the events that’s the reason why when it comes back the person is able to retell everything in details. This astral projection is connected with the subconscious dreaming mind of a person, so it can be easily connected with the dreams, wishes or fears of the person. This is the reason why some people don’t have the courage to face their inner world.
There are two general studies about the nature of astral projection. The first one is defined as the mystical model and it states that is impossible to leave your body in the truest sense of the word and the astral planes and the physical world are points on the spectrum of consciousness. The person is able to “change” the area of consciousness during the stages of astral projection on the same way as the radio can be tuned to another station. According to this model, a subtle energy body is able to carry the consciousness outside of the physical body.
The second statement is explained through the existence of a power that is able to transfer the consciousness into a secondary “energy” body (etheric body) to allow travel into the astral planes. The energy is transmitted through the silver cord and the chakra system.
When the soul travels around the environment can be very different, changes may occur in a moment, the person can find itself very quick from one place to another. In this situation normal physical laws are not applicable so the person can float or fly around. In the moment when the astral projection takes place, the person can notice vivid and fascinating details in the environment. Travelers may travel from one realm to another. They may find access to visions of the past or in the future. In this situation there are no limits of space and time.
Some people are totally unaware about the situation that they are passing through, and some of them also claim common movements in dreams, such as falling or feeling like you are walking through quicksand. When we are experiencing this, we can communicate without saying a word, without movement of lips or hearing voice signals. Thought are transmitted from one mind to another. The existence of telepathy allows us to communicate with everyone.
This Astral projection can be connected with the Etheric Projection , which is explained like a situation when the traveler moves around invisible or ghost-like form in a mundane physical reality. We can connect it with Mental projection too, when we have projection of the astral body to the mental plane via utilization of mental energy.
Actually the astral projection is a term that is used in esotericism in order to describe a willful out-of-body experience as a supposed form of telepathy between the soul and body. This experience can be achieved while the person is half awake or in a state of lucid dreaming and meditation.
There are some questions about this term that are questioning it’s safety and realness and according to scientists this phenomenon has no bad influence on the person that ‘’travels’’ , it only helps the soul to go on a place that is not reachable while it is in the physical body.
There are some similarities between astral projection, meditation and lucid dreaming but that will be discussed in another section.
