Astral projection is also referred to as an out-of-the-body experience and it literally means the same. It is the state when the person is out of his body and goes through out-of-the-world experiences. Here are some free astral projection for beginners tips.
What is Astral Projection?
In the beginning, science did not believe in the phenomena of spirits or anything supernatural. However, in the past few decades, scientists have conducted experiments involving spirits and the outcomes have obliged them to conclude that 'supernatural' indeed exists. There are theories about dreams wherein people say that what you dream is actually what your soul experiences in another world, the ‘dream world’. In fact, many are convinced, to a certain extent, of this theory themselves since they have dreamed and seen heavenly places. They describe it like, ‘nothing was fictitious about those places’, but still they would somehow call the places out-of-the-world. They recall that after seeing these dreams, they felt completely rejuvenated and refreshed.
There have been times when people have felt that they are watching their body from outside it. Though these moments lasted just for a few seconds, they were enough to compel them to believe that there is indeed something supernatural in each and every human being. Those who can arise it, can use the powers to do many other abnormal (in the regular sense) things. Science also claims that the power of the human brain is infinite and that all humans utilize only 10% of their brains. The rest 90% is resting which is also called as our sub-conscious mind. The ones who can use anything more than 10% can achieve many impossible things.
The Egyptians would mummify the dead bodies and bury them with food and water with the belief that the spirits/ghosts of the dead would require the material in their afterlife. Well, astral projection is something like afterlife, the major difference being that in astral projection you can travel the astral plane while you are still alive unlike afterlife, when it is believed that the spirit travels the astral plane after death. The astral plane is said to be a plane of existence that every soul passes before birth and after death. It is an imaginary, intermediate place that some believe, exists between the heaven and the earth that is said to be inhabited by angels, demons and other immaterial existences. Some people who have had near-death experiences, especially during accidents, have reported this weird feeling of watching the accident happening from a distance i.e. from outside their own body. People have also reported to have astral projected when their mind and body were extremely stressed or even under the influence of drugs. Although, such citings are not strictly said to be astral projection experiences.
While most have had such experiences in extreme conditions, there are those few who practice astral projection as an art. Some of us, especially who are acrophobic i.e. those who have a fear of heights, dream about falling from a tall cliff and as we keep falling eventually we feel that we have separated from our body and watching ourselves fall down in to nothingness, that’s when we wake up with a start. Some state that this could also be an astral projection experience. By now, it is clear that during an astral projection the state of the mind is something other than normal. So, to induce an astral projection the mind state has to be changed to those levels. This is mostly done through meditation and other advanced astral projection techniques.
Tips for Astral Projection for Beginners
People practicing astral projection can leave their physical body and make their astral body travel anyplace, at anytime by controlling the state of the mind and falling into 'half-sleep'. The whole time you are astral projecting, it is necessary that you should be able to maintain this state.
For this purpose, a beginner is usually suggested to do breathing exercises and listen to soothing music that may help him to get control over his mind. Relaxation of the mind and body at the same time is very important for astral projection. Any overwhelming feelings should be kept under control, especially when you are beginning the experience newly. Any kind of distraction or negative thoughts should be kept at bay when astral projecting. External disturbances should be none. You should strongly desire what you want and should be well motivated so that you can achieve it as soon as possible.
To get an experience of astral projection for beginners, it is suggested that you can try staring at a spot on the back of the head. Your focus needs to be intense and you cannot afford to get distracted. The intense focus helps you to change the state of your consciousness and you may experience astral projection for fraction of seconds. Those who have some experience of meditation can try to focus with closed eyes and try to see a particular thing. You have to clear your head and think intently about that one thing however, try not to imagine about the object or experience hallucination, as this may prove to be a false astral projection.
Astral projection is gaining popularity in modern days and many desire to learn astral projection art. While some claim it to be fiction, the ones who practice and have gone through it believe that astral projection for beginners show them that there is more to it than meets the eye.
