An astral projection is an outer body experience where consciousness shifts and separates from the physical body.
Excerpts from chapter on Astral Projection from my book The Initiation.
“Our consciousness is usually primarily functioning through our physical body and around the five senses or sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch and the sixth sense of mind, as mind engages with thoughts and interpreting sense phenomenon etc, but when we astral project our consciousness phases into different parameters of living, often vibrant, awareness.”
“It is like we have a vehicle in our garage that we never ever use. It has probably grown a bit rusty and dormant. Taking it out onto the roads would probably be an intense experience, for both you and the vehicle. It is often like that when we project at first. It’s an intense experience for our body, mind and astral body. This can change with time and experience though, as the engine and wheels of the vehicle becomes used to running again.”
