Astral projection is an artform as much as it is a skillset. There are different aspects of projecting your consciousness that makes it not only scientific but a very useful to in advancing your being spiritually. Astral projection is one of the most sought-over and less-understood modalities of consciousness presently. It can be used for doing just about anything once you get out of body. So there are a few areas of mastery to cover once you figure out how to leave your physical body.
1. Your Focus
When you leave your body and begin walking around you’ll notice that you’ll see your surroundings a little differently how they are currently reflecting back to you depending on your energy level. If you are charged at a higher vibration you might pick up on everything in full HD bright color. Or if your energy level is a little bit lower you might just see a thin white outline of your surroundings.
Either way you have to be able to see when you’re in this state and you can’t continue to do it unless you keep yourself focused. The easiest way to do this is to train your eyes beforehand with a candle. Stare at a flame of a candle for 10-20 seconds. Then lift your eyes and keep the glowing outline of that flame in your vision. Practice moving the outline of that flame around the room and keep it where you want in your vision (straight ahead). This trains the eyes to stay focused in the astral realms.
After you’re able to leave your body at will and travel to anywhere in the galaxy you’re going to want to decide why you want to go where you want to go, and what you want to do when you get there. Depending on the individual it can be very easy to get caught up in astral antics. When you’re exploring the astral realms consciously it’s like you’ve walked into a completely new world and your mind can trick you into thinking you should be able to do anything (like in Grand Theft Auto). You CAN do anything, but this is not the case.
Your intentions should never transgress or trespass any other individuals basic rights or justices just like in the 3Dimensional world. Eventually you will come across different soul fragments/entities/beings who are in the astral just like you so you should respect them simply for the fact that they exist. Like if you see an animal in your neighborhood or another person on your street you wouldn’t do anything to try to harm or trespass on them.
There are some places you can go where you will be met with intelligence just as smart as you and on a higher conscious level and energy level. This means that you have to be mindful and respectful of every entity you happen to come across without negatively reflecting your reality onto them. But by no means does this mean you should be scared. As long as you’re centered in your heart with humility and respect then you shouldn’t have a problem.
3. Your energy
I suggest that if you want to get really good at projecting your consciousness you take measures to increase and enhance your energy centers. Do some meditation and clear your chakras. Your chakras hold inside each of them aspects of yourself that make up your being as an individual. Sometimes your chakras can hold blockages or issues that you need to address concerning a specific energy. Each chakra cleared of blockages will shoot you to a higher level of consciousness and let you hold more energy in each center.
Projecting in the astral can also be like a dream so if you find yourself acting or engaging in unconscious activity on auto pilot that you didn’t know you were apt to do then it’s best to go into meditation, address the issue, clear your Chakras of any blockages and try again. You can use crystals placed under each chakra under your mattress to charge each energy center while you’re out of body. This way you don’t run out of energy as fast because astral projection can drain your energy body very quickly.
You can find crystals attributed to each chakra’s energy in my shop here.
And always remember to wear an energy shield. Imagine yourself shielded in a bright white suit of energy around your astral body like a spacesuit everytime you astral project. This is very important. When you have these basics down you’re ready to go exploring!
