As someone who is spiritual, Astral projection is amongst practices you want to experience.
Whilst anyone can try astral projection, to get the most of the experience, you want to know what exactly it is and how to do it.
Astral projection is the act of sending your astral body out of your physical self. It is described as an intentional effort to send your consciousness out of your body towards a spiritual plane or dimension.
Astral projection requires substantial training.
Thus, this may leave you wondering why you have to put so much time and effort into it anyway.

What is astral projection?
At times, when people hear the term astral projection – their next thought is OBE- out-of-body experience.
Well, yes, astral projection does involve an out-of-body experience, however, this doesn’t necessarily mean what they are thinking.
These two isolated incidents come with significant differences – even though to a point they do describe a similar experience.
As mentioned above, astral projections described an intentional effort to send your consciousness out of your body.
OBE on the other end is normally unplanned. During this experience, your consciouness is afloat or hovers over your physical body.
In many cases, OBE is prompted by stress, medical conditions, or trauma.
Furthermore, out-of-body experiences are normally associated with near-death encounters or surreal situation that draws one out of reality temporarily.
Whilst OBE is largely studied and recognized in the medical field, astral projections are normally associated with spiritual practices.
Don’t get it wrong, however.
Astral projection is still an out-of-body experience.
Thus, it comes with no surprise that the experience may be enlightening but, nevertheless scary.
Astral projections are regarded similarly to meditation.
In astral projection, it is believed that human beings have a physical and astral body – also known as an astral plane.
Thus, when one experiences an out-of-body experience, it doesn’t have to be limited to their souls finding their way to their resting place or in some cultures – to the next life.
Instead, in the astral plane, you will also find angels and spirits.
As majestic as it may sound to you right now – astral projection is just like any other spiritual practice.
Sure, you will make mistakes when you begin your journeyof astral projection, after all, it is all a part o learnig.
If you are asking yourself how exactly it works, think of other experiences such as lucid dreaming.
Someone who is spiritual and has mastered the practice can easily lucid dream.
This is how astral projection works.
One enters astral projection while asleep, similar to lucid dreaming, with the purpose of transforming their being out of their physical body using their minds.
Thus, their travel is guided through their minds rather than their physical body.
Keep in mind, however, that astral projection is an advanced practice.
Therefore, to be able to successfully practice it, you must have some knowledge of other spiritual practices.
- Lucid dreaming
This is not a strict pre-requisite.
Nevertheless, it is a foundational guide to ensuring you have experience in taking control over the state of your consciousness.
From there on, you can begin astral projections by first, doing daily meditation or lucid dreaming and slowly transition into actual astral projections.
The reason why the three practices are important to know is that as you transition on to astral projections, you need to be able to slowly transition yourself into a deeply meditative and hypnotic state – then, be confident enough to enter an astral realm.
By now, you must be asking yourself what exactly makes astral projection special.
Well, there are numerous benefits to exploring astral projection.
As mentioned above, many people who have out-of-body experiences (OBEs) describe the experience as being scary, exciting, and enlightening.
Nevertheless, if you train your mind and body to master astral projection, it will have numerous positive effects on you.
Although it may take time and lots of concentration to acquire the skill to astral project, it’s well worth persevering.
After all, there are countless ways in which OBEs can improve your life.
What are the benefits of astral projection?
Before we explore the benefits that come with astral projection, let’s first dig a little deeper into how you may experience it.
Astral projection can be experienced in four common ways.
If you can remember, astral projection is defined as intentionally sending your consciousness out of your physical body into an astral plane.
In reality, this experience is not always intentional.
According to astral travelers, you have this OBE experience as follows;
- Unintentionally and unconsciously
- Unintentionally but consciously
- Internationally but unconsciously
- Intentionally and consciously
Unintentionally and unconsciously
At times, you may experience astral travel without really initiating it when you’re sleeping.
In most cases, you wouldn’t even know that you are having an OBE experience.
Unbeknownst to many, this experience does happen to many people. In fact, this is the most common way astral travel occurs. However, since they don’t know, they don’t believe it does.
Ever felt like you are floating or flying during your sleep – you may just be experiencing astral travel!
Unintentionally but consciously
In this case, astral projections occur when you travel while asleep and then, wake up in an astral plane.
This experience can be quite scary especially if it’s the first time and being that it is unintentional.
As scary and surprised as you may feel, it is normally advised that you avoid panicking when you slip into an astral plane consciously as this may continue to keep your consciousness and physical body out of synch.
Relaxing and keeping calm allows your consciousness to easily slip back into your physical body as they align in the same vibration.
Many people panic during this time as they believe that they are dead and that their souls are wandering into the unknown.
But, astral projection doesn’t kill you.
Intentionally but unconsciously
In some cases, you may actually be trying to astral travel.
Unbeknownst to you, you may actually succeed without knowing.
This is what is known as traveling intentionally but unconsciously.
In this case, since you don’t know anything is happening, your consciousness then slips back into your body whilst you are unconscious.
Intentionally and consciously
When one want to astral travel, this is their ideal scenario in their minds.
You want to obviously intentionally have an OBE experience and actually be conscious to fully experience it.
Yet, of the four scenarios – this is the more rare one.
There are quite a few individuals who’ve actually mastered the ability to intentionally experience OBE when they want to.
According to conscious astral travelers, this form has the most benefits.
When you have an OBE experience, it is all about your soul and your true self.
You don’t experience any pain or physical touch.
Since your physical body doesn’t play any role in this scenario, you become whole.
If you are deaf in the physical world, you will be able to hear in an astral plane.
If you are blind, you will see!
In some cultures, it is also believed that through astral travel, one can even foresee what is to come.
For example, an illness can appear in an astral plane before it manifests into the physical plane – allowing one to avoid it.
Ever heard of astral sex? Well, you can experience this too!
You may meet a spirit of the opposite sex whom you are infatuated with – and have astral sex with them without any physical contact.
This is not all that comes with astral projections though.
There are a plethora of other benefits that come with astral projections.
Let’s have a look at them;
1: Loss of the fear of death
Many people have that underlying fear of death.
Yet, the fear of the body’s death isn’t important when you realize you’re in the astral realm.
This is a life-changing realization!
Once you access the astral realm, your psychosoma (or ‘astral body’) is existing outside of your physical self.
This means that your energy and astral self can exist independently of your physical form, and free of any limitations that may be placed on your body through illness or injury.
The more you have out-of-body experiences, the more comfortable you will be.
One may even say that you understand more about the complexities of living through astral travel.
Sure, your consciousness is able to leave the body – allowing you to appreciate your life without necessarily experiencing the physical.
2: An increased respect for life
You may think that discovering that death isn’t frightening would have a negative impact on your love of living.
After all, why do you need your physical body if your astral body can reach the astral realm without it?
However, this discovery of a whole new experience will more likely AWAKEN an appreciation for the world that is around you.
By comparing the astral plane with the world on this plane, you’ll begin to appreciate all of the things that make the physical world special.
Life will become more of an adventure to you.
And it is an adventure!
3: Personal development
Through this expanded vision of the different realms, you’ll see the physical world from a new perspective.
This openness will overflow to your physical life, where you will grow and be ready to face more of life’s adventures.
This change will not only be limited to your perspective.
It changes your entire life.
How you make decisions.
How you address your conflicts, and so on.
4: Improved sleep quality
Meditation and breathing are important factors when training for the astral project.
By mastering the rhythm of your own body and learning to be truly relaxed, body and mind, you’ll become more in-tune with yourself.
This inner calmness will undoubtedly lead to you having a much more restful night’s sleep.
As mentioned earlier, for successful astral projection, you must really work on meditation, lucid dreaming, and self-hypnosis.
Before we even explore the sleep benefits that come with astral projection, these three practices alone deliver superior quality sleep benefits.
5: Heal your body and soul
When you’re asleep, your body heals itself.
If you miss out on sleep for too long you can even die, as your body isn’t able to recharge and restore itself.
Astral projection means your astral form leaves your physical body behind, putting your body in a similar state as when you’re asleep.
Because of this, having an OBE is a great way to allow your body to HEAL better.
However, because your energy is in such a raised state during astral projection, healing that would take hours in sleep takes only minutes during astral projection.
Additionally, as mentioned above, being in an astral plane allows you to foresee many things that are to happen in the physical plane.
After all, before you experience things in the physical state, they must first pass through the astral plane.
This means that you can easily foresee an ailment in the astral plane and prevent it from actually happening in the physical plane.
6: Achieve an energy equilibrium
During meditation, your mindfulness improves.
You experience a similar improvement during astral projection.
However, unlike meditation, the connection with your inner energy will improve with astral projection.
As with any human experience, practice makes perfect.
Thus, just like the muscles gain strength through exercise, astral travel training to connect with your energy will get easier over time, and with consistency.
7: Gain access to psychic abilities
As you unlock your inner energy and become in-tune with it, your psychic abilities will develop.
Some people report being able to enter different rooms in their home during an out of body experience.
Others are even able to learn the location of objects someone had placed in the room without them seeing it on this plane.
- This is also known as remote viewing.
Remote viewing is generally described s being able to seek impressions about an unseen or distant object in the right location – simply by sensing with your mind.
Others say they have been able to meet deceased relatives in the astral realm.
This encounter has given them closure after their physical brain and parabrain (or ‘astral brain’) reunite.
In the book Adventures Beyond the Body, there is an instance of just that happening to the author of the Jurassic Park series, Michel Chrichton, where Michel tells of when he met his father and was able to properly say goodbye.
8: Recall your past lives
Life regression is a rather commonly reported journey people take when having an OBE.
It is a common theory that life isn’t linear and that these lives are actually happening parallel to one another.
This may be why so many people say they have been part of a ‘past’ life during astral projection.
Have you ever felt special energy at a particular location?
This may be residual energy from where your lives are intersected!
Sometimes, visiting the astral dimension will involve ‘living’ your past life and seeing things through their eyes.
Other times, you’ll be able to see them as if you’re watching a movie.
9: Meet your spirit guides
Amongst the many reasons why people become spiritual if to sought after guidance.
Astral projection is one way to meet your spiritual guide and finally seek the guidance you need.
Through astral projection, you’re able to connect with other entities such as angels, spirits, and other beings.
They may be able to give you answers to questions about the universe and beyond.
Alternatively, their role might be to direct your life and lead you down the right path.
However, some people may be skeptical about this – depending on their culture.
Again, spiritual guides come in different forms.
This makes it more controversial – is the meeting a good thing or not?
For example, in some cultures, it is believed that meeting with deceased loved ones may not be a good sign or bring good news.
Either way, meeting other beings in the astral realm is never dangerous as you’re the one in control.
So you can always feel safe and positive when meeting someone in the astral dimension.
10: Have fun!
Exploring the astral realm is great fun!
In fact, many people begin exploring OBEs because they’re looking to escape from the stresses of the physical world and simply have fun.
You get to discover a whole new realm, where you can fly free and are safe.
- You might even want to use astral projection to fly into outer space!
In addition to staying focussed when preparing for an astral project, it’s also really important to bring a child-like curiosity to the experience.
Astral projections come with the benefit of the unknown too.
You never really know what you are going to see and experience – thus, leaving you with genuine excitement.
11: It links very well to lucid dreaming
Astral projection and lucid dreaming have been linked before.
But they’re not the same.
The thing is, lucid dreaming is actually EASIER once you’ve learned to astral project properly.
This means you’ll be experiencing BOTH altered states of consciousness at will.
In fact, as mentioned above, astral projection gets quite easy when one has mastered lucid dreaming.
Yet, most people just try and experience ONE of them.
This means they’re missing out!
But by learning how to astral project, you can experience lucid dreaming as well.
12: You can experience incredible things
The things you’ll experience in OBEs and in the astral realm are mind-blowing.
It is easy for one to describe the actual scenery and encounters during astral projection.
However, it is not as easy to even begin to describe in our earthly words what they feel.
You really have to experience astral projection YOURSELF in order to really feel and understand the experience.
But you can do all of this, every night if you want to.
13: It helps unlock other gifts
By astral projecting, you’ll open yourself up to your OTHER gifts.
- Remote viewing
- Lucid dreaming
- And many more
And this all starts to unfold and unlock itself naturally as you go down this path.
You can also unlock and release your powerful kundalini energy too.
14: It’s your link to SOURCE and soul
Source and your SOUL are the essences of life.
They’re what makes you, YOU.
And by learning to astral project, you’ll be closer to those things.
You’ll be linked and connect to your timeless, immortal soul.
This allows you to communicate and interact with the source (with enough practice).
And that’s priceless.
15: You can learn new things
You’re able to learn and experience new things by connecting to the astral realm and bringing in your higher self.
This is what has been seen throughout history as the spark of inspiration.
You can also access this infinite inspiration and energy, by connecting with your HIGHER SELF.
How to get started
There are many ways you could learn to astral project, but here’s the thing:
It can be difficult.
You need to learn the right things, from someone who’s actually done it.
Astral projection is all about ‘hacking’ your body and getting inside some natural processes.
There are techniques you can use to make it happen.
