HOW DO I START?
1. Read the Beginner's Guide. This tells you what steps to work
on. Pay particular attention to the Focus 10 portion, as this is
2. Read "My Favorite Technique" under the Weekly
3. Read "Top Astral Projection Mistakes". I say read
this because no matter what technique you are trying, if you are
making these mistakes, you will fail.
4. Start saying affirmations before you go to bed such as,
"Tonight I will astral project". Say this until you fall
asleep (this could be 100 times!)
5. Start reading books on it. This will saturate your
subconscious, which is very powerful. Your subconscious mind will
then start coming up with ways to bring this experience into your
6. Start a dream/astral projection journal. The written word is
as powerful as the spoken affirmation. Seeing yourself write down
your experiences will also help trigger the subconscious into
7. Review your personal habits and environment. Are you getting
up early on Saturday and Sunday to go play with friends, work around
the house, or are you setting aside 2-4 hours of "extra
sleep" so you can induce the groggy state? Is your phone and
beeper turned off? If you have kids then this may not even work for
you, which means that you should be going to bed with the kids (yes,
that could be as early as 7:00 p.m.!) so you wake up earlier than
normal, and then can "sleep in" till the kids get up. Are
you drinking or doing drugs which may be impairing your ability?
Anything that disrupts your focus, is probably not good, whether
that be television, disruptive relationships, caffeine, or drugs.
8. If you are young and full of energy, are you letting your
impatience play too much of a factor and giving up? Or refusing to
sleep in because you're just a bundle of energy and want to get your
day started? Remember that astral projection takes discipline and a
ton of patience. This is difficult for young people because they
want results NOW and that is not how to learn this difficult skill.
You can't learn French NOW so have the same expectations with astral
projection. Speaking of French, if you were to take a French class,
how much homework would you have to do? How many language tapes
would you have to listen to in order to pick up the nuance and
vocabulary? If you wish to be fluent in astral projection, then plan
on spending as much "study" time as you would an advanced
calculus class. Perhaps maybe you are too young to take this up?
This is an individual decision that I cannot make for you. You will
get as much results out of astral projection in direct proportion to
what you put in. If you only practice for half an hour a week, then
your grade will be about an F+. I spend, as I would any difficult
class, 4-10 hours a week on this. I constantly say affirmations,
reduce distractions, keep a journal, go to bed early, sleep in late
on the weekends... whatever it takes to make the grade.
9. Review your goals. Why is it you want to do this? Just
curious? Well, that may not be enough. Maybe you need to adjust your
goals and "heighten" them to something that will motivate
you. The reasons to motivate you don't necessarily have to be
"lofty spiritual goals" either; there is no judge here
telling you why you should be pursuing this. It could be to visit a
lover who is on an extended leave, resolve issues with a deceased
soul, healing a person you love, etc. As I put in the
"Beginner's Guide" if you don't have the
"Desire" you won't have the motivation to go the distance
with astral projection.
10. Just do it! Start today! There is enough here on this webpage
to get you started. There are no road signs in life, you'll just
have to learn some of the nuances along the way. That's what
"experience" is all about.
Hope this helps my friend.
