One of the most effective forms of self improvement in health psychology is visual imagery. One of my professors in university was a health psychologist and used this technique everyday. After ten years she was able to throw away her glasses. She had actually reformed the lenses of her eyes to the point she did not need glasses anymore! Astral Projection is one of the oldest forms of visual imagery and its applications are endless when it comes to finding happiness and love through knowledge of the Self in relationship with the rest of the world.
In my journey of self discovery I have studied many different forms of Self exploration. This usually was a masculine practice of stilling the mind, emptying the thoughts as completely as possible so as to rest in the witness position and watch the feminine movement of life force untainted by the distortion of intention, expectation and opinion. Although this is a great way to understand the difference between the witness and that which is being witnessed, it did not help me to understand how they function together to create what I have come to know as reality.

Astral Projection is the common name for the process by which your consciousness (or awareness, soul, psyche) can temporarily leave its physical body and function independently, while your physical body remains passive. During this experience, we observe the world (or other worlds) from a non-physical point of view and with non-physical senses. The 'projector' finds themselves outside their physical body and released from any physical constraints.
The name 'Astral' is given to describing anything associated with these energetically-focussed, rather than matter-focussed, phenomena. It comes from the root aster, meaning 'relating to a star' or 'starry'. For example, we perceive astral light in the Astral Plane via the astral senses of our astral body, etc. So 'Astral Projection' is simply the term used to describe how to consciously 'arrive' and 'be' in the Astral Plane. Regardless of the seemingly occult term, it is as entirely natural a process as breathing is.

Most everyone has heard of astral projection, but why on earth should anyone want to experience this phenomenon? Well, I think there are four good reasons to practice astral projection. Let me first just say that I have experienced astral projection many times in my own life, so I do have some knowledge on the subject. I have also written a book on astral projection and taught many courses, and workshops on astral projection. One of the questions that I have been asked many times is "Why should I want to experience astral projection?" Yes, it is an interesting phenomenon, but what can it do for me?

What is Astral Projection and What Are the Best Conditions for this Strange Experience?
Astral projection also known as the out-of-body experience and as "soul travel" by some groups, can happen to anyone at any time in one's life. Astral projection is often confused with lucid or vivid dreaming and most skeptics would say that what most people would experience as an out-of-body experience is just a dream. Even though it is quite common for an astral projection experience to be immediately proceeded by a vivid dream or even be mixed up with or embedded within dreams, when one has a full-blown out-of-body astral experience, it is often so real, so vivid and clear that in no way, shape or form is it considered by the experiencer as just being a dream. Genuine astral projection is experienced as a fully awakened state outside the body, and the person is able to actually see, usually from a strange angle, his or her usually still or lifeless looking body lying down on the bed, sofa or couch. One is able to see minute details in the room and travel anywhere else conceivable and watch events and discover new places and/or previously lost or undiscovered items that can later be confirmed.

If you are reading this article then you’re interested in the concept of lucid dreaming. I have been interested for a number of years. The concept of being able to control dreams, to have a lucid dream has always intrigued me.
I can still remember my very first experience with lucid dreams when I was a child. I dreamt that I was falling and I thought to myself that I was going to die. Then I simply decided to change the hard ground into a lake of water. I had just taken control of my first dream. At the time I did not know that this was called lucid dreaming, it was just fascinating to me that I was able to change my dream while I was dreaming.
