After three weeks of practicing a visualization technique, I had decided that this was the night to go for the real thing – conscious astral split. I was a little afraid that it would all fail, that some demon would come and attack me, but I put all negative thoughts aside as best as I could.
After using conjurations to clear the room of any negativity I relaxed my body and began my visualization. I imagined myself coming out of my body and floating up to the roof – you visualize yourself doing it, not only your body doing it, but be there with it, like when you walk down the street for example, you are walking.
I began the visualization by becoming aware of my body and how light it was. Trying to make it as real as possible. Immediately I felt vibrations and sparks surging from my head to feet. A humming noise grew very loud and my heart started to race. Then I visualized myself floating to the roof slowly (This act was performed by visualizing myself floating up, at this point I was not actually out of my body).
After a quick sense of movement and pressure, I felt a jolt and a metallic click sound. Immediately I opened my eyes and saw that I was fully awake and up near the roof. The room felt charged and clear – this helped me believe the reality of the conjuration and its effectiveness. I flew up to the surface of the roof and examined the details and structure of the ceiling, the clarity was great, the whole reality of this astral world was more real than the physical world. I liked it so much I didn’t want to go back.
Unfortunately this enjoyment of flight and learning was cut short, I had a silly idea that something large was coming near my door, it was a simple and silly thought that allowed fear to enter me, and that was when I realized just how sensitive this body was (I must emphasize that there was no reality to this thought, but a simple trick of the mind).
I snapped back to my body with a jerk – which can only be described as the same jerk people feel when they wake up all of a sudden as if they fell from a height. I felt the body tingle a little with the energy left and then this stopped and I stood up and knew I was back.
Although the experience was short, I had finally verified the reality of this other dimension with a technique that worked the first time I tried. I had rehearsed (practiced) the visualization for about 2 – 3 weeks with the intention of getting the details right.
This was the first night I actually wanted to get out fully and the first time I had ever tried to astral travel, I had doubts to whether it could be achieved, in fact I thought that it was all some sort of mind deception that was made up by the person experiencing it.
Since then I have tried mantras and concentration on a place and achieved good results with them as well.
The only advice I can give is that you try experimenting with one of the given techniques long enough, helping to develop concentration on the practice. And consistently building the whole experiment until the result naturally happens with the strength of the effort applied. Don’t try to force the practice, or get too excited, when you are successful try to look at the body to see what its like, feel the way it is – is it heavy? light? Do your thoughts affect your ability to stay out long enough? And have a go at trying some other experiments in the astral that are suggested in this site.
It is not unusual for someone to experience it first go…in fact I had considered myself to be the only person that couldn’t do the practice after reading about all these other people flying around everywhere. That was quickly dispelled.
