Astral traveling a tricky concept to explain, but once mastered it becomes very simple in practice. If at first, you can’t manage it, aren’t sure if you’re doing it right, or can’t figure out what you’re supposed to be doing, just take a deep breath and relax. We’ll get there, you just have to give yourself a little time and patience.
Ready to get started? Ok, let's go.
To begin with, you’ll want to find somewhere comfortable where you won't be disturbed. Some people like to lay down, others prefer to sit. If you’re worried you might fall asleep then I suggest sitting, otherwise just do what is most comfortable and natural for you.
Make sure that you have everything you need to be comfortable before you begin. Blankets, pillows, seats, and yoga mats can all help make you more comfortable. It’s also a good idea to have something to eat 1-2 hours before you plan to start astral traveling. You don’t want to eat too close to your journey but being hungry can be such an intense physical feeling that it pulls you back into this realm and your body before you’re ready to return.
You’ll also want to have everything prepared for after your journey. This includes a journal, a pen, and a snack of some sort. I personally prefer chocolate as I find it particularly grounding but whatever suits your tastes will do just fine. Don’t skip these things! Post-astral activities may not be as exciting as the astral traveling itself but being able to record your journey and have a smooth transition back into your body and waking life is vital!
Once you have everything you need, dim the lights and get into your preferred position. If it’s daytime and you don’t have heavy curtains to block out the light you might find it helpful to use a comfortable sleeping mask. If you’re using music or isochronic tones (which we will go over in the final lesson!) then put those on now.
