Astral travel, what is it? To briefly explain it is a way in which ordinary people are able to transcend their physical bodies.

Every one of us has a spirit which is a mirrored reflection of our earthly selves. When you learn the proper techniques to astral travel many people claim to have been able to walk, float or go to other parts of the world on command using astral travel.

The first thing that you must do if you want to learn to astral travel is to believe. If you don’t believe or try to, nothing that you do will equal success. If you honestly don’t think that it is possible and then try anyway you probably won’t have much, if not any, success.

Astral travel is not sleeping, rather it is like a lucid dream meaning a dream in which you know that it is a dream, astral travel is much more than simply dreaming.

To get started you need only a few things. First you need a room where it is absolutely quiet, so find a place where you won’t be disturbed for a few hours. Close the room off from all light by closing curtains or blinds. Lay flat on your back with your head and neck unsupported.

Close your eyes and over a period of five minutes tense and then relax each of the major muscles in your body. Once the muscles are contracted hold for a two count then relax, repeat until your entire body has been contracted. Once you have completed that begin taking deep slow breaths. Pay attention to your breathing and bring your attention to every gasp, try and clear your thoughts of everything except your breathing.

Continue focusing on your breath until you feel totally relaxed. Now as you breathe out picture your forehead becoming like a portal. Picture your spiritual self emerging through a small hole in your forehead. Picture in your mind the mirror image of your spiritual self floating on its back directly above your body below.

The most important thing is that you MUST visualize what is going on in your mind as well, otherwise you will simply fall asleep. It may take a month or two to be able to do it on command.
