Re: Q & A about out of body experiences
- Question: <br>Please supply an actual technique
for astral travel.<br>Answer:<br>If you are ever in
Philly, come to one/some of our classes, and we will be
glad to do a few guided out of the body techniques.
There is no doubt that live guidance is the most
effective, safe, easiest, and other positive adjectives, way
to experience the astral, and all the literature you
read will validate this. But, since you asked, here is
a "classic" technique...<br>Astral technique<br>1.
Close your eyes and visualize yourself sitting or
laying down in whatever position you are in. See
yourself in as great a detail as you can.<br>2. Visualize
your astral body getting up and leaving your physical
body and floating to a position approx. 10 feet above
your physical body.<br>3. Float up through the ceiling
of the room you are in, or right up in the sky if
you are outdoors. When you are about 100 feet in the
air, look down and see the area you were just in. See
the rooftops, treetops, lights, whatever.<br>4. Float
very much higher and then see the area beneath
you.<br>5. Think of somewhere on earth and let yourself be
pulled there. This usually happens instantaneously with
the first place you think of. It is suggested you
preplan your "flight". Look around. Be conscious of your
surroundings without commenting, comparing, or judging. No
mental chatter!<br>6. Let your self, your awareness, be
pulled back to high above where you started. Let the
universe pull you to wherever you are supposed to go.
Be<br>silently conscious of your surroundings, learn what you
are supposed to, and be pulled back again.<br>7.
Float back down to above the building or area where you
started. Look at the environment, and float down through
the rooftop to the top of the room you started in,
about 10 feet above your body.<br>8. Let yourself be
pulled back into your physical body. Lay or sit still
and let your physical body absorb what your astral
body has learned. Silently witness the process.<br>9.
Live happily ever after.

I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.
I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.
