Astral Projection - Defined
By Sean Koss
Astral projection is something many people have been interested about. Astral projection is commonly known as an "out-of-body experience." During an astral projection, one feels as if they have left their physical body and are able to travel throughout the astral plane. Some people have claimed that it is possible for them to travel to non-physical planes. While the person feels as if they are moving, their physical body remains still.
Astral projection is something that everybody can achieve. It might be harder for some people to experience astral projection than others. Many people try to do astral projection through meditation or lucid dreaming. Both of these methods are equally efficient. Binaural beats are another way that many people achieve astral projection. They listen to specific tracks to help their mind and soul wander into the astral plane.
In astral projection the traveller finds him- or herself in an apparently real domain, which has no parallel to any physical setting. This is termed by New Agers and occultists among others as the astral plane or "the astral". Environments here may range from populated to unpopulated, artificial to natural to completely abstract environments and from beautific to horrific. Here, normal physical laws often do not apply. The quality of detail ranges from crude to vivid and fascinating.
Projectors may gain access to visions of the past or future of Earth, and to the Akashic records. It has been said that space and time do not exist on the astral plane in the same way they do on earth, or that they can be transcended.
Many travelers have theorized that people having dreams travel to the astral realms. Travelers have reported seeing dreamers enact dream scenarios on the astral plane, unaware of the more extensive and varied non-physical environment surrounding them. Some also claim common movements in dreams, such as falling or feeling like you are walking through quicksand, is the astral body in action.
The astral environment is often divided into levels or planes. There are many different views concerning the overall structure of the astral planes, and many different numbering schemes applied to them.
These planes may include heavens and hells, places where people go immediately after death, transcendent environments for those who are "more enlightened," and other less-easily characterized states.
In latter articles, I will explain the different ways of achieving astral projection, and share with you my stories of astral projection.
