Experts disagree about how important actual astral projection techniques are. Some say it’s vital to get a great technique down so the moment of separating the astral from the physical body becomes easier. Others, though, say that once you bring yourself into the trance state, you can separate your astral body through any number of astral projection techniques that you might not even have to work on all that much.
Personally, I think it’s helpful to know about astral projection techniques that can make the moment of separation easier. This is especially true for beginners. Astral projection techniques can help you focus more on what you’re doing, since you’re following a specific set of steps, and less on distractions that might bring you out of the trance state and stop astral projection altogether.
There are tons of astral projection techniques out there, most of which came about by trial and error from people who just started figuring things out as they went. These astral projection techniques have worked for lots of people, though, so they’re definitely worth looking at. Here are a few of the best astral projection techniques I’ve seen, most of which I’ve had at least a bit of success with myself.
The Rope Technique: This is one of the most common astral projection techniques out there. Essentially, you imagine an invisible rope hanging from your ceiling. When you’re in the trance state, reach out your astral hands to grasp the rope, and pull yourself up on it. Concentrate on nothing but the rope and pulling yourself up, and don’t stop moving your astral body. When using this technique, you’ll often enter into the vibrational and paralyzed states while climbing the rope.
Lift and Roll Out: This is one of the simplest astral projection techniques, so many people prefer it. This technique is simple to use once you’re already in the trance state. You essentially let your physical body become paralyzed, normally after going through the vibration state, and then you lift up your astral body and simply roll free of your physical body. Once you’re free, you can do whatever you want by controlling your astral body much like you would your physical one!
The Floating Technique: Again, this is one of the simpler astral projection techniques. This is actually how many people experience astral projection when it happens by accident to them. Once you’re in the trance or paralyzed state, simply imagine yourself getting lighter and lighter until you float up off your bed. Soon, you’ll notice that you’re looking down at your physical body lying on the bed, and your astral body is free from the physical.
The Anchor Technique: This is one of my personal favorite astral projection techniques. Basically once you’re in a trance state, pick a solid object in your room that you know won’t move at all. The object should be out of reach. I like using my door frame. Imagine yourself trying to move that object, and know that it isn’t going to move. Then, reach out with your astral being to grasp it firmly, and try to move it towards you. Since you know the object won’t move, you’ll actually end up moving towards it, pulling your astral body free from your physical body.
These are certainly not the only astral projection techniques out there that have been known to work for different people, but they’re some of the simplest and most effective I’ve found. I’d suggest trying different astral projection techniques to see which ones work best for you so that you’ll have some to fall back on when you’re trying astral projection each night.
