You will be able to feel the reality of it Tanisha. Being in astral plane is a different feeling from being in a physical one. We often think that we are pretending but that is our logical mind hardwired from all the years of being in a society that feeds us with tangible data. You can definitely explore around you but as it was indicated in the technique. You have to have a sense of direction first. I mean this is where travelling astrally gets technical that's why I posted this one first before really going in depth. You have to also find the usual North, East, West, South in the Astral plane. After that you will learn how to gauge the level of flight you have to travel in to be able to go to dimensions or as you said your friend's house. These things come when you've practiced going to your Astral Temple and back. It's all about getting used to the new plane that you've in. When you are used to it then you can definitely explore more and start exploring different levels and places.

Blessed Be,

PostSubject: Additional Astral Projection Technique   Thu Sep 20, 2012 8:35 pm

This astral projection technique is from Forest Butera and the reason why I want to share it with everyone is that this is the technique that I usually introduce to some of my friends and close acquaintances who wants to try astral traveling. The technique will show talk about having an Astral Temple and other Q & A about common difficulties in Astral Projection. I know that there are different techniques that will work for other people but there is no harm in trying new ones. So here it is:


Preparation for the journey

Physical preparation

As with meditation, you should be well rested and clear-minded. This means no alcohol or drugs and no heavy meal just prior to your journey. We understand that in some cultures and traditions hallucinogenic drugs or “plant allies” are common aids for shamanic or astral journeying, but they are not necessary and are forbidden in the Blue Moon tradition.

Pick a safe and quiet physical place in which to begin your astral journey. You will want to pick a place and time where you will not be disturbed - not because it is dangerous to be disturbed while travelling astrally, but because it is inconvenient to be disturbed. Some people feel more comfortable if they cast a circle before doing their astral projection but this is not necessary unless you believe it is necessary for you. Also be sure you will have enough uninterrupted time. Fifteen minutes is a minimum, but a half hour to an hour is much better.

Wear comfortable clothing that won't be a distraction. Dim the lights or light a candle. Choose a type of incense you will burn each time you do astral travel. Mix your own blend according to one of the many books available or choose your favorite stick or cone. The important thing is to use the same type each time - at least until you get proficient at astral travel. When you use the same type of incense each time just the scent of it will help you relax and help get you where you are going most quickly. We recommend sitting (either on the floor, a cushion or a chair) but some people do prefer lying down. Begin by centering and grounding. Centering is making your spine straight, and grounding making a conscious effort to relax and allow your stress to drain away while you make a “connection” with the Earth. Do not worry about making your mind “blank” - just relax. If you have difficulty relaxing you may find a book or tape on self-hypnosis helpful, but you do not need a particularly deep state of relaxation to begin astral projection. You might want to try counting slowly from one to ten feeling your relaxation get deeper with each number.

Establishing your “astral temple”

If this is your first astral journey you will need to establish a home base in the astral which we refer to as the “astral temple”. This does not need to literally be a temple building. Most often, for Wiccans, it is a place in nature - a clearing in a forest, an open meadow, a beach, or the entrance to a cave are all common starting places. Many people choose a place that they have actually been to in ordinary reality and to which they attach fond memories. Alternatively it can be a place you have seen in a movie or book, or the ideal place of your imagination. It could include a primitive hut, a castle, or any other place which appeals to you. It should be a place which you find beautiful, a place in which you feel safe and free from interruption (you wouldn't want your astral temple to be a busy street corner or any place where you would expect to meet other people). It does not matter where in the world your chosen place is located in ordinary reality. It does not matter which physical features (mountains, lakes, streams, seas, etc.) are near your place in ordinary reality. What you are doing is plucking a scene out of ordinary reality and fixing it in your mind in non-ordinary reality. These scene is no longer necessarily connected to the land mass in which you visited it in ordinary reality. You no longer need to travel by plane, boat or car to get to it. If you have a photograph or drawing of your favourite place study it for a while. If not, you might want to make a sketch of it or simply try to recall all the details you can about the place. If you don't remember a lot of details, that's ok too.

Relax, breath naturally and close your eyes, and find yourself in your chosen place, your “astral temple” . Finding yourself in your familiar place, but in non-ordinary reality, you now have infinite possibilities for exploration and discovery.

Arriving in the astral temple

For some reason many people over complicate this part of the procedure to an astounding degree. It’s really very simple: Close your eyes as you continue to relax. Then in your mind visualize your “astral temple” as though you are sitting (as you are in ordinary reality) in the middle of it. At first it may feel like you are pretending, but ignore that feeling and follow the rest of the procedure. Throughout the rest of the exercise your physical body is still and your physical eyes are closed. Any mention of body parts refer to the astral body which is in the astral temple.

Open your eyes in your astral place, and look around. Be sure that you are in your astral body. You do this by looking at your hands and feet. Open and close hands, examine your fingernails, wiggle your feet. Feel the ground or floor on which you are sitting. Notice the temperature of the ground. Is it dry or wet? Sniff the air. Notice what aroma is there (incense? flowers? vegetation?) What do you hear? (Birds? Insects? Wind? Water?)

Figure out which direction is East in your astral place. Notice the position of the Sun. (Is it rising? Over head? Setting behind you?) Turn slowly clockwise viewing everything you can see from your position in the middle of your astral place. Don't try to do too much on your first journey. If you have difficulty seeing a lot of details on your first few trips do not be concerned. It gets easier with practice.

Returning home

When you are ready to return home sit back down in the middle of your astral temple where you started and close your eyes. Relax, and then count slowly up from one to ten feeling yourself become more alert and aware with each number. When you reach ten open your eyes, take a deep breath and rub your hands together, touch your face, or feel the floor to “ground” yourself back in ordinary reality.

Future journeys

When you get comfortable going to your astral temple and just relaxing and looking around the next step is to explore a bit. If you astral temple has no water source you may want to explore somewhere toward the West to find a pond, stream, sea, etc. If it is on the beach, perhaps it would be nice to find a forest. Perhaps you would like to find a particular type of tree, a meadow of wildflowers, a deserted cabin...the possibilities are endless. Astral paths can, amazingly, lead to other countries, even other continents. Maybe there is a cave you can explore.

If you have not yet had any close encounters with a god or goddess you may meet them in your astral temple. In fact if you plan on it and tell them politely that you would like to meet them it is quite likely that you will meet them there. Do not expect necessarily to see them in human form. You may only feel a presence or hear a voice, or there may be an even more subtle sign. Sometimes they do not make their presence known until later after your astral journey is over. Some people like the idea of finding an animal guide. You can meet these in the astral as well. You might find something as you explore which you'd like to bring back to your astral temple.

A little more advanced journey might include planting a tree or garden, creating a ritual area, and even doing an entire ritual (including casting the circle, calling the gods and elements, etc.) within your astral temple or nearby area. In fact many people find astral rituals preferable to rituals done in ordinary reality - especially if they do not have privacy in their living quarters or they are away from home for Moons or Sabbats and unable to carry their favorite tools, etc. Do not attempt to do too many different things during one journey.

Your astral temple and meditation

The same techniques used for astral projection are used for meditation. Go to your astral temple and find a nice place there to sit and meditate. Do not worry about “clearing your mind”. Pick a topic, a question or an object on which to meditate. When you are finished return home as with astral projection.

Trouble shooting

Q. I always fall asleep when I try to meditate or astral travel, what am I doing wrong?

A. You probably aren't getting enough sleep at night. Try getting more sleep or try practicing your astral travel in the morning just after you wake up.

Q. How do I find time to work on my astral travel when my kids/spouse/roommates/parents/dogs/etc. are always demanding my attention?

A. That can be a tough one, but if you can find time to take a bath practice your astral travel there. Combine it with a nice ritual bath (candles, incense, bath oil) and it can be as good as a weekend vacation.

Q. I will be doing fine and then a dog will bark, or a police car will go by with the siren screaming...how do I tune these out?

A. If you are not naturally tuning out all outside noises try this before beginning your astral journey: Tell yourself that each noise you hear will be a signal to go deeper into trance and that each noise will only help you on your journey and not interrupt it. If you do this each time you will soon find that noises do not bother you.

Q. I know I had a great experience while in my astral temple, but now I can't remember it! What can I do?

A. If you had valuable experiences those experiences stay with you even if you can't consciously remember them. Your astral experiences will be positively affecting you regardless of whether you can recall all of the details. If you do have an experience or make a discovery which you feel you must bring back with you, you can try creating a trigger point. For example: You have met a goddess in your astral temple and She tells you that you have an important task to do. She says you must practice having more patience with younger people. You know this is an important message and you do not want to forget it (it’s not nice to let the gods down). Take one hand and press on a part of your body (maybe your elbow - something a little bit unusual). While you are pressing tell yourself that when you return from your journey and want to remember the goddess' message you will remember it when you press your elbow. Repeat her message while you press your elbow in your astral temple. You may not need the “trigger”, but it will be there just in case.



If you have any questions about this technique please do post them at our Q & A About Astral Projection and I'll be happy to help you with any questions.

Blessed Be and Happy Travelling,
