Red's Astral Projection Walkthrough

What’s Astral Projection?

Astral projection is the spiritual belief that you can project your soul outside your physical body and travel around. Some believe you can even go to different planets and universes. Although popular among otherkin/therians/spiritual religions/etc., it is not just for those communities, nor does this belief contradict with any other religious beliefs, so you’re all welcome to try it.

Preparation:

Figure a time of day. It’s supposedly easier in the morning for beginners, about an hour or so after you’ve woken up. This is because you’re still a bit dreary, and are at your most relaxed. An exhausted dreary can instead cause you to fall asleep, or perhaps not get you as properly relaxed. It’s up to you. For some, the time might not be morning. I’m foolish, and tend to not get around to projecting until around 11. Not so good an idea, don’t follow my lead. (Also keep in mind I’ve got a really strong tether to psychic things, and have been doing this a while.)

Find a comfortable area you can lie down on. A couch or bed will do just fine, but if you’re an oddball like me and can use the floor with just as much ease, be my guest. Also make sure you’re not too hungry or too full. If you’re hungry, eat something light and little. If you’re full, maybe wait a bit until your stomach is content.

Make sure the room is at a comfortable temperature. Too hot or cold won’t do, so adjust if necessary. It seems like a lot, but it’s all worth it, I promise. Getting under blankets is fine, so long as they don’t put you to sleep.

Posture and Physical Preparation:

For beginners, it’s suggested you start out straight as a pencil, with your arms at your sides and your legs together. However, if you sleep on your back, this is probably not the best choice for you. Really, AP is fine in any position, so long as it doesn’t put you to sleep. Lately I’ve been doing it on my side, and only once did I fall asleep (I was so tired, though).

Once you find your comfortable and non-sleep related position, take deep breaths. No need for something as intense as Past Life Regression, but enough so that you can focus on it and grow relaxed. Many choose to focus on their breath as the relaxation part, but it’s not mandatory. Close your eyes.

Getting in The “Zone”:

Close your eyes and relax.y Like mentioned, some choose to focus on their breathing to clear their mind. Others daydream, but some may find that too distracting. Another way is by simply pushing everything out of your mind. Or perhaps focusing on one thing. It might be the AP journey, it might be the hum of a lawn mower or the ticking of a clock. Whatever method suits you best, try it out. Try multiple methods, you never know what little thing might make your journey successful.

Imagine your limbs are weightless, and don’t focus on your physical body. You could use the Past Life Regression method, where you’re on a hill and the sun warms each part of your body until you relax and they “Fall away”. This is a really flexible part of the whole process, so don’t worry about how you get there.

Exiting your body:

Yet another flexible part of this process. Really, Astral Projection itself can be put into any way shape or form, so long as you have the proper order (but really, can you physically do this in any other order?) There are many a-methods of doing this, so try ones that help you. I personally just sit right up and out of my body, but once again, I’m decent at it as well as- it might not suit you well. I’ve been told it’s not an easy method, nor a preferable one.

Here’s a list of methods to get you started. Try every single one if you must, you’ll get it.

Here’s another list. Some are… interesting, aren’t they?

Dont give up. Keep trying. Reuse certain methods. Use the method you were avoiding because you were a little weirded out by it.

Commonly it’s said you’ll feel tingles/vibrations when moving your astral limbs out of your body. If you don’t, it doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong. Sometimes I get them, sometimes I don’t. Don’t worry about them, though they feel weird.

I’m out. Now what?:

For beginners and first timers, you don’t have to do too much. Yes, it’s exciting, and I’m sure you’ll want to do a lot, but also remember there’s only a certain amount of time you can stay in a single position without moving. I usually last an hour. Once I lasted two.

Look around your room. look at your physical body. You may find your soul isn’t human. You may have to move differently than you’re used to. This is why AP is so helpful for otherkin. Examine something in your room for practice. Anything you do in this plan will not affect the physical world. Take that as you will, pleasing or disappointing.

After a few practice runs, you’ll be able to go farther and farther. Each time even, you may go a bit further. You can even go to other worlds. Yes, you can go to your canon if you’re fictionkin. Yes, you can go to canons when you’re not fictionkin, and yes you can go to other canons when you are fictionkin. A lot is possible.

However, (and I’ll go into detail on the other post) please note when you exit this world, you do in fact affect things. I’m not sure the logic in that, but that’s what I’ve found. Both universes and worlds other than our owns are in fact affected by you, so keep that in mind with what you say and do.

Don’t worry, you can’t get your physical body hurt in the astral plane.

Have fun, meet your favourite characters, go and visit worlds unbeknownst to us.

Returning to your physical body:

It’s not recommended to awaken quickly, so try to avoid it. It can result in very unpleasant feelings. If you need to, however, it should not harm you past dizziness and slight dissociation in a sense (you may feel distant and disconnected. You’ll return properly in a little bit, don’t worry.)

Simply “bungee-cord” back to your body. Think about returning, and slowly wake yourself up. Become more and more aware of your surroundings. Focus on a noise again if you wish. When you feel your limbs and physical body again, open your eyes and relax for a bit before jumping up or anything.

I wish you the best of luck. Remember, everyone can do it, you don’t need to be psychic or have any previous knowledge of anything in metaphysics/spirituality or else wise in this sort of respect.

Here’s a basic trouble-shoot post, but please don’t hesitate to ask me anything on this blog.

Astral Projection Warnings

  • Only astrally project if you are in a stable mood (if you are clouded by negative thoughts and feelings, you will attract negative entities). 
  • Do not astrally project if you are on drugs - this will take you to a lower plane of disorientation and will be less vibrant. 
  • Just in case, ask your guides to protect you (as there can be malevolent beings). 
  • Ideally, only do it if you believe it will be spiritually benefiting (it is not a necessary part of spirituality) rather than a source of entertainment. 
  • If you do it incorrectly, it could lead to sleep paralysis
  • You cannot get possessed by malevolent entities, but they can get attached to you.
  • Always surround yourself with nurturing and higher vibrational energy, and avoid beings with darker/clouded auras as they tend to be less benevolent (but not always - it is just a precaution if you are new to astral projection). 
  • Avoid fear - do not worry that you can die while astrally projecting (as you will not), if your astral body senses danger it will immediately return to your physical body. 
Dream Walking

  • Dream walking involves the ability to visit and enter other people’s dreams, or to control them. 
  • To visit a person’s dream, they must be sleeping and preferably experiencing the REM mode of sleep. 
  • It works best with close friends or family members as you have a stronger spiritual connection to them. 
  • A supposed way of dream walking is to be in your own lucid dream, and then imagining a door (which acts as a portal) to the other person’s dream - and upon entering it, you must envision yourself being within their dream world; to return you can go back through the door to your own lucid dream and then wake up.
  • However, little is known about the consequences of dream walking, so it is best to do it with a consenting individual and only benevolently. 
  • Do not attempt this if you are not an advanced meditator. 
  • This is an exhausting process and there is a possibility to get lost in the dream world (although not permanently).
  • Dream walking and visiting is commonly a process used by spirits such as an individual’s guides or an ancestor, in order to communicate an important message
  • It is best to beforehand practice being able to recall dreams vividly and understand the language of dreams - which is usually symbolic.
