You’ve probably heard of people who have had an out-of-body experience (OBE), often when going through extreme circumstances such as cardiac arrest, in crisis situations, or at the peak of labor.
People constantly report that their consciousness leaves their bodily bodies, floating above themselves, witnessing the events happening around them as a third observer.
Did you know that you can consciously direct those experiences at will?
You can! When you know how, you can choose to leave your body and take your spirit, your consciousness, to another place.
An Astral Projection Guide
When you choose to travel with energy without your physical body, you are practicing Astral Projection.
It is an intentional OBE that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness, an astral body, which is separate from the physical body and is capable of traveling throughout the universe.
It is a skill that you can develop with time and effort.
Here is a short guide to help you on your journey. When you enroll in our classes, you will be able to gain a deep understanding of astral projection. This just scratches the surface …
1. Focus on your breathing
Sit or lie down in the most comfortable position possible. Turn off your phone, eliminate all distractions. Then take a deep, controlled breath.
Inhale and exhale slowly and deliberately. With each exhale, let your mind empty itself of all thoughts beyond the sensation of breathing.
You will notice that your body goes numb, you will experience a feeling of disconnection. This is natural. Your spirit is being released from its corporeal body. Keep your focus … don’t allow other thoughts to creep into your mind.
After a while, you will experience a sensation like a heavy wave, or a blanket, capsizing your body. You may even lose consciousness of your physical body.
Don’t panic or get excited … and don’t fight it.
2. Enter the vibratory stage
At this time, you will begin to shift your consciousness to a different vibrational frequency – your Astral Projection is beginning.
If you’ve never done this before, this transition can be a bit disorienting. This is how the next moments of your journey will unfold.
You will feel your body begin to vibrate and glow.
Do not panic! This is a natural reaction to your transition.
Stay focused, block out distractions or feelings of fear.
Let the vibrations wash over you, like a warm blanket on a cold night.
Don’t move your physical body, tempting as it may be.
Don’t try to think of anything beyond your breath and your journey.
Once this has settled and you are in the vibration stage, you can begin to exercise your willpower. There are several ways to do this, so it is up to you to find the one that works best for you.
3. Visualize yourself moving … without physically moving
This is the point in your astral projection guide where you should take a leap of faith. You need to rise to your new relaxed state of energy outside of your physical body.
It will not be easy.
Here are some exercises you can do to experience this next state of being …
Imagine that your hand expands and contracts without moving it. Focus on the sensation until you can almost see or feel your hand move.
Imagine that your hand goes up slowly.
Imagine a bar or rope on or in front of you and visualize reaching out to grasp it with your mind.
Engage your willpower to push or pull out of your corporeal body.
4. Get up from your body
Your mind will fight this … so don’t be alarmed or discouraged if it returns to your physical body.
There is no limit to the number of times you can step out of your physical self and explore the universe as a spirit. However, it is healthy to maintain a balance between the physical world and the astral world.
During your first few scans, try looking at familiar things in your home from a different angle. Read the spine of a book on your shelf, and when you return to your body, check to see if your mind saw the same thing when it separated from its physical container.
When you are ready to return to your body, just ‘think about it’ … your physical and spiritual self is under your control at all times, despite Hollywood movies leading us to think otherwise!
Your spirit and your physical body are connected by a silver rope. No one can break that bond … you are free to explore knowing that you can always return to the physical world.
Following this astral projection guide requires focus and commitment.
It is not easy to explore your astral self. But, if you want to be an effective animal communicator, the ability to travel to other places in your mind will help you understand the animals you are trying to help.
Imagine if you could travel to the paddock of a frustrated dressage horse and enjoy its surroundings, without directly interfering with its world.
It is possible to harness your astral self to explore other realms and gain a greater understanding of animal behavior.
You can try to master astral projection on your own, or you can join one of our classes and explore the full range of skills you might possess that allow you to communicate with animals.
