We all dream, because we all sleep. Dreams can be a mixture of certain activities of the brain, even the heart. But they can also represent our minds experiencing something which is beyond reach of our physical body. Apparently there are some who can leave their body at will. By meditation and much practice there are some of us who leave and travel without their body and have conscious awareness of the whole thing. Our female protagonist in "The Meadow" was adept at this and it is where she found not only solace, but knowledge and great inspiration.
How to Have an Out of Body Experience!
By Karl Sewon
I´m sure you have heard of people having an Out of body experience or an Astral Projection. Its the ability to leave your physical body and explore the world and other levels of existence through your astral body. There are several things that you need to keep your focus on in order to achieve this state and to astral project while keeping a conscious mind.
The first thing you should do is to find a calm place for you to begin your exercises, I recommend that you avoid the bed if possibly, we are conditioned to fall asleep when using the bed, and this is not something we want to happen, the goal is to making the body fall asleep while keeping the mind active and alert. I recommend using a chair with arm support, or at least to be in a sitting position.
When you are properly seated its time to begin relaxing your entire body. Begin to tense your feet for 10-20 seconds and then release. Relax and breathe calmly. Repeat this and works your way up through your body. From your feet to the head until every little muscle feels totally relaxed.
When your body is relaxed it's time to focus on keeping the mind calm, relaxed and free of thoughts. This is something most people can have some problems with, in our daily lives the mind is constantly occupied with mental chatter and this can be hard to just turn off. I recommend taking deep breaths in order to keep your mind focused. Concentrate on inhaling air into the nose and breathing out through the mouth, do this in a very slow pace.
If unwanted thoughts start to surface in your mind simply push them away and get your attention back to your breathing.
After a while you may notice that your body is getting heavier and everything seems to be slower, you may feel like your whole body is expanding. You are now in the trance state where your body has gone to sleep while your mind stays active. But you are not free of your body just yet, you need to implement an exit method to separate from your body.
There are many different exit techniques you can do, the best way is to try some of them and find out which works best for you. One of the more popular ones is the rope technique. Begin to imagine that an invisibly rope is hanging from the ceiling and that you are climbing it with your imaginary hands. Its important to keep your physical body fully relaxed when you do this. This method if done right will exert a high level of pressure on the astral body and forcing it to separate.
Those are the key components for how to astral project and keeping a conscious mind. The most important of these are the relaxation bit.
Its the foundation which all the other skills rests upon, so take your time with it. I hope this information has been helpful and will help you have an Astral Projection.

THE MEADOW -- A SPIRITUAL ROMANCE
"The Meadow" is an epic love story unlike anything told before. The storyline threads an earthly path through four life times, from ancient Mexica to contemporary Pakistan, and affords the reader glimpses of a place known as "The Meadow" - an inter-life waterhole where souls rest between lives.
This is a story about life and all its complexities. It is about the eternal love of two characters that seem destined to be together but who repeatedly fail to bond due to a nemesis that tracks them from life to life, tearing them apart.
The stage of "The Meadow" includes hate and retribution, international espionage and political deceit, interspersed with the brilliance of an autistic savant, offspring of the female protagonist, who tries to solve the secret and mystery of the eagle in order to save his mother.
The frustrated lovers thus have only one option - to unite in the Meadow - a place they forget all about each time they incarnate into a new life.
This site is dedicated to "The Meadow", a book of more than 600 pages and has yet to be published, but it is also devoted to sharing information about life beyond the trapdoor of death, inviting the reader to question everything, from dogmatic beliefs to the establishment.
There are many related articles here and we hope that there will be something for everyone. We hope to encourage communication and discussion between likeminded individuals willing to share their experiences to further our common goals of advancement into the future whilst learning from each other.
