Whenever we get the chance, we like to summarize some of our favorite astral projection tips for you. Lately, some of us have been working these 4 great ways to improve astral travel. Give ‘em a try and see what you think.
The major element of successful astral projection isn’t doing it but remembering it. You probably astral project on most nights, but because you don’t remember your journeys after waking, you don’t realised it’s happened. One of the best habits to acquire in order to build your astral memory is to write down your dreams immediately after you wake – including in the middle of the night. This is when your memories of both your travels and your dreams are freshest. When you write your dreams down consistently, you’ll recollect more and more of them. And you’ll start attuning your conscious mind to your unconscious which will help your memory during the transition between your astral travels and your return.
Turn off the ‘Boob-Tube’
If you want your brain to shift easily into the lucid state during sleep – a great spring-board for astral projection – then avoid watching television for at least an hour before bed. The TV barrages your brain with blue light too much stimuli. Your brain will be too busy processing this to bother with conscious astral projection. And while you’re at it, avoid heavy meals immediately before sleep. Digestion will dominate your body processes, making mental relaxation more difficult.
The Hypnagogic State
Colors and shapes sometimes become more prominant when you close your eyes during deep states of mind. This is often the case during meditation or before drifting into sleep. This is called the hypnogogic state and it’s ideal for conscious astral projection. What you want to do when you notice this is to focus upon the colors and shapes. As you begin to drift into sleep, often, they will become objects. Soon, your state will shift to a dream state. The focus will help you move consciously into that dream state, making it lucid. Alternatively, you may find that you can lift out of your body just as you almost drift into sleep.
Is this Reality?
Performing regular reality checks during your waking hours will help train your mind to begin doing it while you sleep. For example, every time you check your watch, lok again. You’ll be able to tell if you’re dreaming when the first time and the second are vastly different. If you this habit during your waking hours, then when you start doing it during sleep, you can shift to the lucid dream state and then on to astral projecting.
