Mentally explore space, time, and dimensions through astral projection
Imagine being in a dream, except you're fully awake, conscious, and in control. It’s a state known as astral projection—an intentional out-of-body experience where one’s soul leaves their physical body and travels to the realm of the astral body. Detaching from the physical body allows you to explore different dimensions of reality. You can access an enhanced sense of clarity and discover unanswered questions in this place.
Meditation, self-hypnosis, or lucid dreaming can lead to this dreamlike state of consciousness. While out-of-body travel is a common experience for starseeds, anyone can achieve this when they put their mind to it! Read on to discover how to master astral projection to explore different dimensions.
Before you begin
Astral projections are unique to each individual, just as the journey of life. However, everyone should protect their energy before, during, and after exploring the astral world. Here are a few steps you can follow to begin:
Ground with crystals
As with all spiritual practices, it’s essential to ground your energy before embarking on your astral journey. You can welcome crystals in for support and guidance during astral projection.
Rainbow amethyst is known as the “stone of astral journey.” This aura quartz often facilitates astral traveling as it enhances clairvoyance, boosts vitality, clears energetic blockages, and awakens creativity. A steep inner awareness and kundalini energy can be accessed by opening all chakras. This crystal makes the perfect companion if you intend to explore astral projection.
Meditation is always a good place to start. You can go deeper into a trance-like state by practicing self-hypnosis.
If you have your own meditation practice in place, feel free to follow that. Otherwise, allow these words to guide you.
Arrive in a comfortable seated position, eyes closed. Take a few deep inhales and exhales to ease you into the present moment.
Attaching an intention to your meditation can be elevating. In this case, you may integrate the mantra “I am safe. I am held.” to harness grounding energy. Gently chant this mantra internally until you feel relaxed enough to explore the field of silence.
From this place, imagine your traveling self rising beyond the physical realm. Our souls can transcend outside the body and witness the world from a non-physical perspective. Your astral journey is about to begin.
Climbing the cord to astral projection
You can master astral projection in many ways, but this one is particularly effective. It’s known as “The Rope Technique,” established by Robert Bruce to guide individuals to achieve an out-of-body experience.
Follow these ten steps to master astral projection with this technique:
Allow your physical body to relax entirely as you begin a full body scan from the toes up.
To enter a hypnotic state, focus on the breath and zone in on an object of your choice.
With eyes closed, take your gaze off this object and take a glimpse around you. It’s important that your eyes remain closed as you internally gaze into the darkness and stay with this stillness.
Recognize your astral body slowly rising above your physical body by tuning into the subtle vibrations. By using your mind and willpower, try to control those vibrations.
Once you feel in control of these waves, it’s time for the rope visualization.
As you lay there, imagine a silver rope hanging above you. See your astral body reaching for and grabbing the rope without moving or opening your eyes.
Imagine pulling your astral body up and out of the physical body as you begin your journey to the etheric plane.
It may take some time to get there, but once you reach this state, feelings of euphoria may arise.
Take your time and be gentle with yourself while you're there. Take this opportunity to ask unanswered questions, explore your life's true purpose and embrace the beauty of the unknown. You may also seek out your spirit guides here if you feel called to.
Whenever you're ready, return to the physical body by traveling back down the silver cord. As the astral body spirals downwards, mentally re-enter the physical realm by becoming aware of your surroundings.
Astral projection can take time to achieve; nothing great ever happens overnight. But by grounding your energy, practicing loving kindness, and taking your time, you can get there.
Be patient with yourself and try not to get discouraged if it takes a while to get there. It’s worth the wait. You got this!
