When people first become interested in having an Out of Body Experience (OBE), they will undoubtedly look up the benefits and the drawbacks.

It is important to do your research before you begin learning how to astral project, so you know the importance of learning how to astral project properly and moreover, you can decide whether it’s something that you want to learn in the first place.

Thankfully, the dangers of astral projecting are few, and by preparing yourself properly, you can decrease the risks of coming to any harm. One danger of astral projection is demons.

Astral projection is evil?

When you separate your psychosoma (also called the ‘astral body’) with your physical body, you might draw the attention of spirits or entities who reside in the astral realm. Depending on who you speak to, these demons look different.

That’s because they can shapeshift. Many stories report these demons being very grotesque in appearance or having a darker light about them. Unfortunately, these demonic entities can appear to you in a form that you already trust like your partner or a family member. They can also shapeshift to look like other beings from the astral realm, like your spirit guide.

What do they want?

These evil entities want one of two things. They either want to possess your body or they want to steal your energy. If they want to possess you, they can’t do this through the astral realm – they can only do it when they’re in the physical world.

In films, demonic possession is shown as a ‘loss of control’, where the demon is exercising its will but inside your physical form.

This isn’t the case. Instead, the demon becomes intertwined with your body. You can tell that something isn’t right, but you don’t lose yourself. It is also important to remember that you cannot be possessed unless you let the demon in. You have to want to be possessed on some level.

Therefore, we recommend being vigilant at all times, and being firm with any entity that is trying to persuade you to let it in. Just remember – you are in complete control! Don’t be afraid to ask for help either.

Alternatively, they could want to steal your energy. This is your life force, and if you’ve honed your skills, then you will have a bright and strong energy, which is bound to draw the attention of demons who want to steal it. Many people report that fighting against an evil entity has left them exhausted, and this is because their energy is being sapped away.

How they claim the upper hand

When encountering a demonic entity, people often become overcome with fear and forget that they are the one that’s in control.

Other times, people aren’t properly trained to be astral projecting and end up doing so at a dangerously low frequency, where they are at risk of being separated from their body. Both of these situations lead to a danger of paralysis.

If the demon is able to overpower you, or make you think that they are in control, it can feel as though they are holding you against your will. Once they have paralysed you, they are free to exercise their every whim! This sounds terrifying because it could be. It is unbelievably important that you learn how to astral project properly, so that this doesn’t happen to you.

Astral projection and demonic sex

Sometimes, the demon won’t want to fight you, they’ll instead try and tempt you sexually. Lots of different cultures and religions have stories about a succubus or incubus-type creature that visits people and tries to seduce them, before stealing their energy.

These tales have existed across the globe for so long, because the threat of sexual temptation by demons is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Having sex while astral projecting isn’t the same as physical sex, though it can be equally pleasurable. Although it may seem like a thrilling idea, please stay vigilant and resist.

Unfortunately, these sexual demons may appear to you in a non-consensual situation, where you are effectively raped by the demon. These demons that rely on astral sex to get energy are resonating at a very low frequency, so it’s easy to overpower them.

Just remember to strengthen your mind and summon your white light! Another key factor in astral projection is that you’re always in control, so if you find yourself in an unpleasant situation, follow your silver cord back to your body and escape.

Dealing with Astral parasites or vampires

Rather than interacting with you, a demon may instead attach itself to you like a parasite. These spirits are incredibly stubborn. For some, they see the parasite latch on to their astral body, while others only notice its presence when they return to their physical form. Although these astral parasites may be a nuisance, they aren’t fatal.

They draw on fear, so by giving them no control over your emotions and focusing on your life, they won’t cause much of an issue.

Things to remember

While astral projection isn’t necessary, it is very fun. Just remember that there are dangers involved in astral travel if you’re not vibrating on a high enough frequency, or if you’re not standing strong against the other entities that exist on the astral plane.

By learning how to have an OBE properly and sensibly, you can stay safe and most of all, you can enjoy astral projecting. Make sure to read the list of scary astral travel stories to be more aware of this danger.
