We have been talking about what can happen when your third eye chakra opens and becomes active. For all it is different but there are some things that I have witnessed and experienced that can accompany as an effect of this action. Abilities , that if you are not aware of can make you think you are alone, crazy, losing your mind and can have affect you in ways such as depression and anxiety. Whilst understanding that these are a consequence of your newly awakening consciousness can make you feel a little more relaxed and accepting of what is happening to you and help you to start your journey.
I must proclaim, do not do anything you are not comfortable with. You may become more comfortable with it in the future but if you are not comfortable with it now, then it is not the time to do it. If you never become comfortable with it then it just may not be part of your path. I would like to start with astral projection because this is a subject we have already covered in different aspects in other posts and something I have spent a fair amount of time researching and practicing.
What is Astral Projection?
Astral projection is leaving the physical body by means of astral body or consciousness. I will not go into the debate as to whether it is real, or if you actually leave you body as it feels that you do. I will assume for this post that we are speaking of AP in the classic sense and what I have experienced and learned about is something that you are open to. If you are not open to this concept this is fine. Please stop reading now, this post is not for you. In an Astral Projection you will travel out of your body, being able to transcend space, time and even dimension.
The travel will take place on one of many astral or non-physical realities/realms or levels, which ever term suits you. From what I have learn at this point there are realms that are classed as higher than us and realms that are classed as lower than us. Higher realms are occupied by beings of higher vibration and centered toward love. Being of high vibration yourself, that is centered on love you will likely exit on to one of these planes. You can tell they are higher by the feeling of well being they create, they appear to be full of light and the mind’s interpretation of them will be beautiful in a natural sense.
I cannot tell you how many there are but the higher they get the higher your vibration must be to visit them. The likely hood that you will reach a vibration so high that you hit the top realm whilst in a human experience is very unlikely. That being said higher planes are extremely enjoyable. The further you get from your own plane the harder it will be to remember the experience or become lucid during it. However that doesn’t mean that it can’t or won’t happen if you focus on that outcome though.
Lower realms are darker and will feel uneasy and the mind’s interpretation of them will be uglier. Here is where you can run into some darker beings that will not have your best interests in mind. Visualize light around yourself no matter what plane you are visiting and try to enter the astral planes in a high vibrational state. This will attract you high vibrational beings of love, that is if you encounter any beings at all. You may, in this state be able to see past the minds interpretation of the realm and see it for what it is, vibration and energy, that appears as light and colors. Being that most of my trips are non-lucid I tend to interpret with my mind and have not experienced this yet.
You can leave your physical body in your astral/light/energy body also known as a double, any term is suffice. But what we are referring to is all the same thing, a body that acts as a vehicle for your astral experience. Or maybe you will leave in your consciousness. This experience seems to have no awareness of any body, you are just there.
At first getting out of your body, or just becoming lucid during an OBE or Astral projection may be hard. This is still where I am at the moment and if it is not a talent of yours then it may take a while. Any where from 6 months to a few years, depending on your dedication. However, with a little practice and a bit of time you can learn to get out of your body and be lucid. Once this happens for the first time you may not have full control of your astral body. Some of your movement may be limited. If this is the case, then again with experience you will find a larger range of motions. The longer you do it for also the further you will be able to travel from your body also the wider amount of perks of AP you will be able to take advantage of such as time travel, space travel and dimensional travel. If I find any more useful information on how to develop this ability then I will post it, but for now, exercise of the astral body and consciousness is the best way I know of to move your progress further. Practicing AP’s every night or for a long amount of time will also have an effect on how well you can project.
Once you are able to astrally project how can and should it be used? First of all just because Astral Projection makes something possible doesn’t mean that it is moral to do it. Respect others’ rights and respect yourself. Do: Visit a love one who has passed over, Check the well being of living loved one, send loving or healing energy to anyone, visit past lives, visit future lives, visit other planets, other places on this planet, visit your spirit guides and/or Guardian Angels, arrange to rendezvous with other astral projectors, wake those astral projectors up to come play with you, enjoy flight and freedom. These are just some of the things you may wish to do whilst out of body, some people however, tend to let the experience take them and see what happens and as long as your vibrations are reasonably high and you protect yourself there should be no problem with that.
There are some things you can do to make sure that your experiences with APs are always enjoyable and positive. You can and should always visualize a white light of love around you when you project. You can also call for your Guides/Guardians/God at any moment to protect you. Don’t engage in activities with negative motivations. Always try to project whilst in a high vibrational state. And of course you can be back in your body, just by thinking about it. Have fun.
