Successful astral projection relies on the combination of an awake mind and a sleeping body. This combination is difficult to achieve for most, and impossible for some. Another way to successfully astral project is by being able to sleep light enough to move easily in and out of the early, dream-like phase of sleep.
There are a few excellent aids to help you astral project via sleep states. Here are three popular ones.
1. A Lucid Dream Mask A lucid dream mask is something you place over your eyes – kind of like a blind-fold – before you go to sleep. These masks are specially built to sense your stages of sleep. Once you reach the REM stage, the mask will cue you that you’re dreaming by the use of sounds or flashing lights. These cues can enter your dream state in order to help you recognize that you’re in a dream.
2. Hypnosis Tapes Hypnosis tapes that suggest you are able to astral project have proven very helpful for some people. When these are combined with binaural beats, you have a powerful and quick way to get your mind into deeper states of awareness.
3. Oaxaca’s ‘Dream Herb’ The grass-like herb called Calea Zacatechichi, has been used by the indigenous Chontal people of Mexico’s Oaxaca State for both increased recollection and frequency of dreams. They also use it for a form of divination called oneiromancy, which is based on interpreting dreams.
