What happens to your body when you astral project?
Your body is left behind in a sort of stasis. It’s still alive and functioning even though the astral body is gone. A silver cord, as it’s called, attaches your astral body to your corporeal body and keeps you connected. If the silver cord is cut, you die.
Is that what happens in death?
I believe so, yes. Your astral body, your spirit, your soul, whatever you want to call it, the essential, conscious; leaves your body behind, just an empty shell of organs, blood and flesh with no soul. Your soul continues on to its next destination.
How do you know astral projection isn’t just a dream? Even a lucid dream?
In a lucid dream you are in the dream construct, the dream world. The characters in it are fabrications of your own mind and subconscious.
They are not real. You can control them. You can snap your fingers and create a donut, a Porsche, or Brad Pitt, but none of those things is actually there. Alternatively, in astral projection, you are awake and leaving your body. There are no dream elements. You are in your room or where you laid down to do it. Any beings you encounter are real and simply living on the astral plane as opposed to the Prime Material plane as it’s called. When you separate your soul from your body there is no question whatsoever whether you are dreaming or not. It’s quite unlike anything you’ve experienced in a dream, even flying.
How do I learn how to asrtral project?
You need to raise your vibration to a really high frequency in order to get out of your body. To do that, you need to move your life in the direction of high awareness. You definitely need to learn to control and set aside fear or you’ll attract some negative entities to your bedside. The reason I think I was finally able to do it is because I learned how to stay conscious while in an unconscious state, aka lucid dreaming.
Here is a simple technique to try it out:
Step 1: Relax the physical body by visualizing each muscle.
Step 2: From your space of relaxation, enter a vibrational states; this should feel like an amplified version of a cell phone’s vibration mode pulsations coursing through the body.
Step 3: Imagine a rope hanging above you.
Step 4: Using the astral, or subtle, body, attempt to hold on to the rope with both hands. The physical body remains completely relaxed.
Step 5: Begin to climb the rope, hand over hand, all the while visualizing reaching the ceiling above you.
Step 6: Once you are aware of your full exit of the physical body, you are able to explore the astral plane.
