How To Astral Project (In 4 Stages)

Astral projection intrigues the most curious spiritual seekers. It’s something I’ve practiced and worked with over my spiritual journey and can understand why you may want to explore it.

You may be wondering what the process of astral projection and what the astral plane are actually like.

You will essentially progress like this through your astral projection:

First you will relax and enter into a state of deep meditation. Eventually your body will start to vibrate from head to toe. At the peak of the vibrations you’ll have a chance to exit the body and astral travel.

Let’s go a little more in depth on the 4 stages.

#1 The Relaxation Stage

The first stage of astral projection is getting yourself into a deep state of meditation. We want out bodies to fall asleep while our minds stay awake.

It’s important to stay as still as possible during this stage as we want to trick the body into thinking we are falling asleep. All the while make sure you stay conscious and aware.

Some recommend listening to binaural beats to enter into a deep meditative state.

You can also say the mantra “mind awake, body asleep” in your mind during this stage.

The longer you stay in this state of deep relaxation while staying aware the more likely it is you will enter into stage 2.

#2 The Vibrational Stage

After about 20-30 minutes of deep relaxation you will start to feel your entire body starting vibrating.

The vibratory stage is the gateway into astral projection.

Many people get scared by this stage because it can actually be very intense. You will quite literally feel your entire body vibrate like crazy. It will feel like you’re actually moving even though you’re just laying there in reality.

During this phase we want to feel deeper into the vibrations. Try and make the vibrations even stronger if you can. At the peak of the vibratory stage you will have the chance to separate from your body.

The vibration is your consciousness becoming aware of your astral body and away from you physical body. You’re quite literally feeling your astral body’s energy which can be powerful and intense.

VELO (Voluntary Energetic Longitudinal Oscillation)

To intensify the vibrations in the vibratory phase of astral projection we can practice a technique known as VELO.

The process of VELO involves feeling the vibrations in your body starting at your head and feeling it move down to your feet. Then feel that energy moving back up to your head.

Continually feel into and move this vibratory energy up and down your body. Take your time with this.

The goal is to make this energy move up and down the body as fast as possible to eventually fully tune into your energy body.

#3 Separating From The Body

At the peak of your body vibrations it’s time to exit the body.

Without physically moving visualize yourself floating up from the body. There are several ways we can go about moving into the astral and out of the vibrational stage.

The rope method

Imagine there is a rope above you that you can grab onto. Imagine grabbing onto this rope and pulling yourself up and out of your physical body.

The roll over method

You can also attempt to roll out of your physical body. Attempt to will your astral self to roll over out of your body.

Everyone has different results with different methods. Try each to see what works best for you.

It’s important to remember not to actually move the physical body or you will wake back up into regular physical consciousness.

#4 The Stabilization Stage

Once you’re out of the body you’ll likely feel disoriented, scared, and possibly excited

It’s important that you don’t get wrapped up in your emotions. Try to assert a goal into your astral reality. Somewhere you want to go, something you want to see. Attempt to move about the astral.

You want to start cementing this astral reality. Often on your first out of body experience you will get scared or excited to the point you pull out and back into your physical body.

Try your best to stay focused on your goal. Why are you in the astral? staying focused on your intention of astral projecting will help you stay in the astral for longer.
