You’ve probably heard of people having an Out of Body Experience (OBE) – often when going through extreme circumstances such as cardiac arrest, in crisis situations, or at the height of giving birth.
People consistently report their consciousness leaving their corporeal bodies, of floating above themselves, witnessing the events happening around them as a third party 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 energetically without your physical body you are practicing Astral Projection.
It’s an intentional OBE that assumes the existence of a soul or consciousness – an astral body – that is separate from the physical body and capable of traveling throughout the universe.
It’s an ability you can develop with time and effort.
Here is a brief guide that will assist you in your journey. When you enroll in our classes, you’ll be able to get an in-depth understanding of Astral Projection. This just scratches the surface…
1. Focus on your breathing
Either sit down or lie in the most comfortable position possible. Turn off your phone, remove all distractions. Then, take deep, controlled breaths.
Breathe in and out slowly and deliberately. With each exhale, let your mind empty of all thoughts beyond the sensation of breathing.
You will notice your body becoming numb – you’ll experience a sense of disconnection. This is natural. Your spirit is being released from its corporeal body. Maintain your focus…don’t allow other thoughts to creep into your mind.
After a while, you’ll experience a sensation like a heavy wave, or blanket, rollover your body. You might even lose awareness of your physical body.
Don’t panic or get excited…and don’t fight it.
2. Enter the vibrational stage
At this moment, you’ll start to shift your consciousness into a different vibrational frequency – your Astral Projecting is beginning.
If you’ve never done this before, this transition might be slightly disorienting. Here’s how the next moments of your journey will unfold.
- You’ll feel your body start to vibrate and shimmer.
- Don’t panic! This is a natural reaction to your transition.
- Stay focused, block out distractions or feelings of fear.
- Let the vibrations pass over you, like a warm blanket on a cold night.
- Don’t move your physical body, as tempting as it may be.
- Don’t try to think about anything beyond your breathing and your journey.
Once this has settled in and you’re at the vibration stage, you can start to exercise your willpower. There are several ways of doing this, so it’s down to you to find the way that works best for you.
3. Visualize yourself moving…without physically moving
It won’t be easy.
Here are some exercises you can do to experience this next state of being…
- Imagine your hand expanding and contracting without actually moving your hand. Focus on the feeling until you can almost see or feel your hand moving.
- Imagine your hand moving up slowly.
- Imagine a bar or rope above or in front of you and visualize reaching out to grab it with your mind.
- Engage your willpower to push or lift out of your corporeal body.
4. Rise from your body
Your mind will fight this…so don’t be alarmed or discouraged if it’s drawn back to your physical body.
There’s no limit to the number of times you can exit your physical being and explore the universe as a spirit. However, it’s healthy to maintain a balance between the physical world and the astral world.
During your first explorations, 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 was separated from its physical vessel.
When you’re ready to return to your body, simply ‘think’ it…your physical and spiritual selves are under your control at all times, despite the Hollywood movies that make us think otherwise!
Your spirit and physical body are connected by a silver tether. Nobody can sever that tie…you’re free to explore knowing that you can always return to the physical world.
It’s not easy to explore your Astral being. 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’re trying to help.
Imagine if you could travel to the paddock of a frustrated dressage horse and take in their environment, without interfering in their world directly.
It’s possible to harness your Astral being in order 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 abilities you might possess that allow you to communicate with animals.
