My First Astral Projection Attempt


Today I am going to tell you about my first real astral projection attempt, which was actually just a minute ago.

I was lying on my bed. I closed my eyes and took deep breaths for a few minutes (Should it have been longer?). Then I got a really light tingling sensation in my foot, like gentle energy flowing through it, but it wasn't very strong. Then a twinge of it in my finger, like a spark. So I imagined a huge rope coming out of my stomach and up into infinity, then I imagined climbing it (Any tips on other ways to get out of your physical body?). I felt lighter, but didn't feel my astral limbs floating up. In fact, my head was the main thing that felt light, which I find weird because most people say your head is usually the last astral part of your body to disconnect from your physical body. That's what I've heard, anyway.

Anyway, I continued to climb the rope, but still nothing. I gave up and opened my eyes, a bit disappointed. Should I have waited longer before I tried to climb the rope? Should I have meditated and relaxed more?

Does anyone know how I can improve? I know I have to practice more, probably for a while, but any tips would be awesome. I did also have my dog in the room, but the only noise she was making was breathing. And maybe her leg was touching me. Should I make sure she isn't in my room when I'm trying to astral project?

Any help is appreciated, please put it in the comments! Thank you for your time, I hope you liked my story!

i like to project at night before bed, I will lay down and try to conciously stay awake as much as I can by closing my eyes, and imagine a rope coming from the sky. The first time I projected, it happened almost instantly, as I was borderline conscious and I happened to think of the rope. The second I thought of the rope as I was in that state I felt pressure on my head. I opened my eyes and the whole room started vibrating up and down, and then I heard a pop. Then I was getting sucked up by some mystical force and the rope that I visualized was right in front of me. Fully conscious with what seemed like fireworks all around me. I looked down and seen the cord that attached me to my body. I got sppoked cause I wasn't ready so I thought about going back to my body. Instantly I seen the back of my head and then came back into my body. Everything vibrated again and I was back. What a trip

Hi! I've been reading about astral projecting and I've always wanted to try it, but I've heard that you should be 18 or older? Is this true? Can it be dangerous to astral project? Could you get stuck out of your body?
This is a great story! I enjoyed reading it.

That's was close. If want success in astral projection then you should stay calm because, In the beginning, some people's be become exited which results in the breaking of concentration.

You have made a good start, by all accounts. The rope method is well known and does work for some people, but it is one of many visualisations. When I started projecting a good few years ago, I just floated upwards out of my body, all at once, gently, towards the ceiling. You need to be very, very relaxed and the exit should be calm and gentle - no struggling! Trying to force yourself out just won't work.

Concerning your dog: my beloved dog helped me to project! Please do not worry about your dog being present when you project. Dogs and cats are excellent astral projectors, so they can even help you. But I do recommend that the dog is not touching your body, as movements or sounds might distract you. But it is fine if your dog is lying a little distance from you.

Regarding breathing, it is important that this is slow and regular: breathe in slowly for five seconds, hold for five seconds, five seconds breathe out slowly, hold for five seconds... Repeat cycle, etc.

I wish you good fortune in your desire to project!

I've been astral projecting for two years. I'm only 21 so I still have so much more to learn but the rope thing never worked for me. I'd always do it the way you are, except I'd picture myself slowly sitting up from my body. It works every time. I always look back and see myself laying there so I know it worked! Now it's to where I accidentally astral project without meaning to.
