Two Techniques for Astral Projection

by Ed L'Esperance

From a Dream:

Before you go to sleep, tell yourself that sometime during the night you will become aware that you are dreaming. It may take up to a few weeks for it to happen, but keep trying, every night.

When you are in a dream and you have become aware "I am dreaming!" then look at your hands. When you look at your hands the dream will dissipate and things around you will change, they will look different. At that point you are astrally projecting. You can travel anywhere just by using your thought! Think yourself to where you want to go.

From a Meditation:

While meditating, or when laying down at night to sleep, put your body in a deep state of relaxation. When your body is relaxed, relax your mind by thinking of peaceful scenes. Be sure not to slip off to sleep, concentrate on what you are doing!

Then, imagine that there is an energy or light inside your head (O), and that you can project it out through your third eye area (between and slightly above your eyebrows). Project the energy like a laser out to a point about three feet from you at a 45 degree angle upward.

>From that point three feet out, bend the energy to project upward at a 90 degree angle so that it will end up about four feet above your head (see diagram below). Try to connect the energy to a point above your head in this general vicinity that will cause you to sense a gentle vibration (*).

     |\     Legend:

     |  \    O - Your head, on top of your body.
     |  /    / or \ - Projected energy from you
     | /     * - The point where the vibration is found
     v/      | - The path the vibration 
     O       v -   takes to get to you.
     |       Note:  / and \ may not be 45 degrees

"Grab" the vibration with your energy, and bring it down into your head. The vibration will fill your entire body. At this point, think of rolling over and imagine what it would be like to roll over and stand up, seeing your body lying in bed. Or you can float up from your body and look over your shoulder at your body lying below.

At this point you can travel. Use your imagination. Your spirit is boundless and infinite, and doesn't need vehicles or flying or anything, but some people are more comfortable with these things, and plus, it is FUN! You can think yourself to anywhere, anytime, instantly. It is easier if you have a mental picture of where you want to go (I visit people by visualizing their eyes). The rest is up to you. There is no place forbidden, you cannot get "separated" from your body and die. You are experiencing the natural state of your spirit, your soul. To come back to your body just think of your body and desire to be back. Once you are in your body, concentrate on a little finger and try to wiggle it. It may be hard at first, but when you concentrate, it will happen. You will then wake up.

If you decide to astrally project when you are going to bed for the night, you can simply drift off to sleep when you are done traveling, and you will awaken normally the next morning.

Good luck travelers!
