What Led Me To Astral Projection?
My name is Alison Wylie. I have been having conscious out-of-body experiences since around the year 2000… an incredible adventure into the beyond. I wasn’t trying at the time, though I was trying to lucid dream. I was trying to keep my mind awake while my body fell asleep. If you would like to read about my first OBE you can find it …… I have been having regular astral projections since, it has become a part of my life.
So what led me to my success? I hadn’t intended to even have OBEs I thought that I would concentrate on my dreams and lucid dreams. The reason I had decided to go deeper into my dreams was because I wanted to discover more about who I am and my intuition told me that this was the way to go. Looking back I can understand why I ended up floating above my body because if we want to experience who we truly are we have to go inwards. Astral Projection is an inner process despite the expression often used – out-of-body experiences.
Since I had my first conscious OBE I continued regularly because after that first one I wanted more. So I did all I could to continue what I had started. I realized that there were certain essential factors that contribute to my success
Astral Projection Essential Number 1
Desire the Divine for Successful Out-of-Body Experiences
Desire the Divine – This is an important factor, a desire to connect to the spiritual. I call this spiritual longing, it pulls you to the Divine, to the spiritual, like a moth to a flame. I can explain it as a similar feeling to when you miss someone only it is much more intense.
Desire is the seed that has to be planted. Nourish it and it will grow.
Astral Projection Essential Number 2
Dedication to Your Astral Projection Practice
Dedication to the cause is essential in anything you do in life if you are going to succeed. As the song goes:
“Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself standing in the hall of fame” Script -‘Hall of Fame’
Well dedicate yourself to astral projection and you could find yourself standing in the Akashic Records checking up on past lives.
Astral Projection Essential Number 3
Determination Will Get You Out-of-Body
Be determined, it is the determination that fuels the desire and makes that desire into a reality
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.”
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” Mario Andretti
Dedication is an energy, it gives you drive to work towards your goal. Dedication will get you through the rough times when you think you’re not getting anywhere.
Astral Projection Essential Number 4
Commitment Will Get You Travelling in the Astral
Commit yourself like you’ve never committed yourself to anything before, no half-hearted practicing, no putting it off until tomorrow, say the affirmations, repeat the exercises…
‘Just do it’, as the expression goes.
Astral Projection Essential Number 5
Concentration and Focus Will Help You in Astral Projection…… and in your Life.
Mental health and fitness is very important when practicing astral projection. For this skill you need to be mentally fit, the fitter your mind, the more frequent your experiences will be and they will be of better quality.
Practice focusing in the present moment during the day on whatever you’re doing. Stop your mind from wandering around in the past and future.
Objectivity is a useful attribute in the astral. The environment is thought and feeling sensitive so what you think or feel may manifest right in front of you. So keep control of those thoughts!
So How Did I Make it to the Astral?
I desired the Divine, I longed for a strong connection, I yearned to experience my true self beyond this physical body.
I dedicated myself to my dreams and lucid dreams, writing them down, discovering their meaning.
I was determined, I tried every night to lucid dream, every time I woke up during the night was another opportunity
I committed myself to my goal, it was the thing I worked on whenever I could during the day, whether it was writing, reading, meditating, doing exercises I could fit in with my daily routine.
I concentrated on my goal, I focused on my desire for the Divine, nurtured and nourished the seed that was to grow. I practiced staying focused during the day.
You see my goal was not to lucid dream, it was not to have a conscious out-of-body experience, my goal was to experience who I truly am, the dreams and lucid dreams were simply the tools I was using but there was another tool that would be more effective in really showing me who I am. That tool is of course astral projection, my higher self knew that and because my desire for the Divine was so strong, my determination fueled the desire and there was nothing else to do but give me an experience, a taste of who I am……. and so one night I found myself floating above my physical body.
