Astral Projection Techniques
Within the quietness of sleep, a magical world unfold before our close eyes. A dream occurs.
The dream will carry us to another existence and guide us on a spectacular journey into another dimension of our minds.
We astral project without knowing it.
Dreams hold the mystery of a virtually unexplored realm of consciousness. A dream can take you to the deepest reaches of the galaxy without having to move an inch. You can be at the ocean side or on a desolate mountain top, yet still laying peacefully in bed.
There is no limit to where your mind can project.
Gaining control of the astral
Have you ever suddenly awakened from a vivid dream with an incredibly strong feeling that only a few moments ago you were involved in some bizarre activity in some distant land?
In a moments flash, you become transported from this strange place into a surprised wakefulness. The sensation and vague images of this and other worlds left behind may still remain, leaving you possibly quite perplexed and mystified. Many people just pass it off as a dream.
Or, was it a dream?
When we are in the midst of a nights sleep, our minds evoke a certain state of consciousness that still defies scientific explanation.
A montage of images, sounds and sensations some people call dreams, some worship as visions, appear out of the depths of our brains.
Occultists and the psychics refer to this “place on“ in our minds as the Astral Plane.
We visit the Astral every night while asleep and remember our experiences as dreams after we awake.
Most of us, unfortunately, are swept across the Astral Plane unaware of anything between falling asleep and waking up. As soon as the morning alarm jolts us into wakefulness the rushing of thoughts and concerns for the coming day turn an evening of bizarre adventures into a confused, often fragmented, series of hazy memories.
The Astral Plane, though, just seems like a nighttime fantasy clouded over by the veils of sleep and quickly slips away from consciousness.
While we are dreaming, we hardly ever think about the things we’re doing and seeing in this strange world within our minds.
We become completely engrossed with acting out a kaleidoscope of situations. We fail to realize we are in a different place than in the working world.
A dozen elephants could be roller backwards down a freeway and this scene may not even phase the unaware dreamer. The dream would be less likely remembered after waking. The Astral becomes lost in a dream.
Dream that you are dreaming
Had you ever dreamed of that you are dreaming?
A sudden flash of awareness may come over you, during the flow of a dream, and bring up on the realization that you were dreaming... while the dream is unfolding around you.
That overwhelming excitement may have abruptly awakened you, leaving the unique sensation of being in some other environment far removed from your bed and sleeping body.
This realization of being in a dream while the dream is occurring is known as conscious-dreaming, or lucid dreaming. The dreamer as “awakened“ to the dream and stepped into a level of the Astral Plane.
Waking, resting, sleeping and dreaming are different planes, or levels, of consciousness. Conscious dreaming, or lucid dreaming, is still another “world” that the can become aware.
A vivid, or lucid awakening, will enable you to taste and apple you pluck from a tree or you might reach out and touch a wall and feel the plaster or brick against your fingers. Maybe you can even see your fingers move through the wall.
Becoming aware of yourself and your surroundings while you were dreaming changes the quality of the ordinary dream.
No longer does the dream seem like a staged television production or surreal real movie. Empathetic feeling emerges in the dream. The "awakened dremer" feels as being an actual experience rather than under the control of an elusive the flow of meaningless acitvities.
Once the thought comes to you that you are having a dream, you have access to supernatural powers that can change in the dream world into the Astral.
As long that as you remain aware and alert to the fact that you are dreaming, you can realize that you can have control of the dream. The dream world and then becomes the Astral and a whole new form of consciousness arises into awareness.
