How *Not* To Astrally Project

Astral Projection

Astral Projection

I have come to the conclusion that most books written about Astral Projection are absolute shite. They are bad because they display complete lack of empathy for their potential readers – for example by describing a method that has worked for themselves, but without giving full consideration to whether it would be suitable for others.

And the methods that are described are done badly. Usually they are in this form:

Method #1: first relax completely, then visualise such and such…

Method #2: first relax completely, then focus on this or that chakra…

Method #3: first relax completely, then chant this mantra…

Etc etc etc. I have read whole books consisting of a list of potential methods in this form.

Now from my own experience of Astral Projection, I have achieved out-of-body-experiences using several different methods: however each of them was similar in that first, before projecting, I attained a trance-like state of consciousness – deeper than deep relaxation, and yet lighter than a light sleep. I believe that this is basically the Theta-wave consciousness, which is linked to other well-known psychic phenomena. I have therefore come to the conclusion that, when it comes to Astral Projection, just about any method can be effective – so long as you attain the right trance-like state of consciousness first.

And yet, it is that trance-like state of consciousness which is the least well described part of the process – which is so often dismissed in so many badly-written Astral Projection books by “first relax completely” or some similar phrase. It strikes me that if a writer does not fully understand the importance of the prior relaxation, and the relative insignificance of the actual method to exit the body, they do not fully understand Astral Projection.
