As many of my readers know, I’m part of the Sisters of the Fey group where we each contribute to the blog monthly with an article on anything spiritual, mystical, intuitive, Fairies, Magic, Angels and more. My last post to the Fey blog was on the topic of Astral Planing. Have you experienced this?
Are you familiar with Astral Planing? What is Astral Planing?
The astral plane is the realm of dreams and spirits. When we astral plane, we are taken to a level beyond the physical where we live here on earth. Astral Planing is the vehicle method we use to visit an intermediate world of light between heaven and earth. Those who have astral traveled say when in the astral, they can feel they are in the present, along with all their senses. People often experience this during illness or if they’re involved in a near death experience, if not practiced intentionally.
Astral planing is a spiritual journey of the out of body experience, known as OBE. It is like floating out of our bodies and watching our body below, not unlike what many tell us they experience in near death situations, or while in an operating room as their soul watches from above. The nature of astral traveling is we can explore another plane that does exist. It is said that approximately 10% of the population has had an OBE. So how would we know if we’ve astral planed?
Astral planing is basically, lucid dreaming. It is the separation of our spirit body from the physical body allowing us to experience the astral realm. And remember, our body is still connected by a silver cord, enabling us to return anytime. We can literally feel our conscious self, leaving our body when we start to fall asleep, that is why we sometimes feel like we’re falling. the first step to starting an astral projection.
The goal is to transcend our physical being, mentally. Our soul doesn’t actually leave our body, it’s just something people say as a way to describe astral projection.
It’s important to do our research before attempting astral projection, making sure we have a clear and pure intention because astral projection is the law of attraction for the soul, meaning that whatever we reflect will come back to us during our soul journey.
While we sleep, our subconscious is in control. The difference between unconscious astral travel when asleep and dreaming, and practiced astral projection, is by using conscious astral projection we’re able to control where our body or soul travels, also referred to as conscious sleeping.
How to Astral Travel
Lie down or sit in a chair in a quiet place and focus solely on your deep breathing. Do this until your mind draws blank and the only sound you hear is the sound of your deep breathing, and you’re just about to fall asleep, but still awake. Continue on with deep breaths for approximately 20 minutes when you will begin to feel a tingling or numbness within your body and you eventually lose consciousness of your physical body. Don’t panic, stay focused, and do not move or allow in any thinking, this is part of the process. Once we’ve achieved this vibrational stage, we can begin to use our willpower in one of several ways.
Our vibrations have now been shifted to an alternate frequency, which enable us to project. We must next visualize ourselves moving – without moving, as we need to begin lifting ourselves out of our physical bodies.
We must now focus our imaginations and intentions with eyes closed and use visualization. There are various methods we can use for visualization, and as time progresses with practice, we eventually discover what works best for our focus. But one suggested method is that we close our eyes and imagine there is a rope hanging above us. Then we must reach up (with our astral bodies) and grab on to the rope, without moving any body parts.
This event takes a lot of practice, and admittedly, I still have not mastered it myself, as I have a very active imagination and have a difficult time doing deep concentration, but I’m working on it. It’s natural for us to be pulled right back into our bodies (as I have) the first few times until we get a natural handle on astral traveling. Once we master this, we will be free to journey to wherever we wish. When we’re ready to return to our bodies, all we have to do is ‘think’ it.
What will you experience in Astral Traveling?
- We may feel as though our body is paralyzed, similar to when we sleep.
- Some say they feel their heart rate escalate as astral traveling exerts a lot of energy.
- Some will feel a tingling through their bodies, where others claim to feel an electricity-like vibration through them. This happens when energy points reach a synchronized resonation.
- Others claim they begin to hear a loud buzzing noise, or a hum. Some say it’s a light buzzing sound, while others claim they feel as though they were near proximity to a jet plane.
