Astral Projection, like meditation is an exercise of the mind. Some would say that it's a none exercise because the idea is not to exert yourself, but to energize. To explore the astral realm could be akin to exploring your physical environment. Some people are content residing within same 250km radius their entire life, but other want to know and experience everything. Our physical world is vast but that's only the tip of the iceberg because the universal realm of energy and though is basically infinite. I don't have to give you the benefits of exploring people, places and things because culturally we are wired to indulge. There are some benefits to exploring your dream world using astral projection on the other hand. Here are 5 of them;
1. Practicing Astral projection will reduce your fear of the unknown
A lot of grown adults are scared of the dark. Not literally... but in the sense that if something unknown creeks in the night, it will straddle them. That's okay, there's nothing wrong with being scared. Practicing astral projection on the other hand, can make you more aware in these situation because your learn to experience different mind states. Sometimes when learning to astral project, you get chills or paralysis. Sometimes you feel a presence or see something. The more you astral project, the more normal paranormal event becomes.
2. Astral travel is relaxing
If you feel like relaxing and that you need to clock out mentally you can. That's the idea of astral travel actually. You need to relax to astral project. In today's world, relaxing and thinking of nothing is good. Watching yourself sleep can be oddly relaxing.
3. You can develop better intuition
Both astral projection and lucid dreaming can give you access to your subconscious and the super-consciousness. You subconscious are the thoughts that you have before your ego scrambles them. The super-consciousness on the other hand , is like the internet of though. It contains everyone's thoughts, feelings and emotions...ever. It's the Akashic Records as told by famous psychic, Edgar Cayce. Fishing up experiences and emotions will make you more sensitive to picking them up in the physical world.
4. It will reduce the fear of death
For people who are terminal in any disease or condition, reducing the fear associated with leaving this earth is top priority. Some people just need to confront their own mortality. Astral projection gives you access to what has become known as the spirit world. There, they can explore death from a variety of experience and pretty much access every passing in the history of death. If they wanted to that is.
5. Astral projection can allow you to better get to know yourself
As mentioned, astral projection is simply a method known to access the spiritual realms of existence. It's like your personal connection to the internet. There you can visit past lives, communicate with spirit guides or examine the tides that are pushing you in life. Astral travel allows you to read your story from an objective point of view. Better getting to known yourself will lead to truly finding and following your destiny.
Having an consciously induced out of body experience is not the only way to reap these benefits as many other mind exercises can be beneficial. Astral projection is simply better suited to reach depth of consciousness.
