Is Astral Projection a Spiritual Practice?

Post by Xanth » April 18th, 2013, 8:01 pm

The simple answer to this question is no, Astral Projection is not a spiritual practice in itself. I have no doubt that some people will be surprised to hear that and others will be nodding in agreement. Please allow me to explain.

This is, in fact, the wrong question. The question should be, “CAN Astral Projection be a spiritual practice?”. The answer to that is a resounding YES. Of course it can be, but you need to make the conscious choice to make it so.

It starts with asking yourself why do you want to learn Astral Projection, or if the case is that you already know how, then simply ask why do you Project? It begins with the Intent behind the “why”. If all you’re looking for is the thrill of something new, or perhaps you want to just fly around, or maybe you’re wanting to spy on people… well, the Intent associated with these actions isn’t of Love. Some of it is self-serving. Some of it is just outright negative. I’m not saying don’t spy, don’t fly and don’t find a thrill… I’m just saying that if you’re looking to grow spiritually, then those things should probably be kept in balance with your other activities. I’m a big fan of flying… and a lot of the time I get caught up in doing just that. So I understand that sometimes it’s not easy to keep your mind on track.

Now remember that you can grow spiritually much faster simply by interacting with others in this physical reality. Don’t hide from other people, they’re your path to spiritual growth! That is the entire reason why you chose to be here in the first place! To fast track yourself towards becoming a being of Love. If you can stick to that path in the current social atmosphere of greed that surrounds us on a daily basis, then I think you’re doing pretty good. The nice thing about becoming Love here physically is that it translates over into your Projections. You will find that your Projections take on a much more positive atmosphere to them and you will meet with more positive entities, because you’ve now shifted your Intent towards a more positive position, hence you will begin to experience such directly. This concept also applies to our physical lives. The more you change within to become closer to Love, the more positive effects you’ll see happen in your life.

You can definitely also learn to become a more Loving being through Astral Projection. This is where Astral Projection as a spiritual tool comes into play. Just as you grow spiritually here in the physical, through your interactions with other Consciousnesses, the same holds true while you’re projecting as well. Be kind to all those you meet, because you never know if an entity you’re interacting with is a creation of your consciousness or a truly separate being from you. So just be nice to everyone.

That lesson also holds true here in this physical reality, except you know that everyone is separate (well, that’s the illusion anyway) from you. You don’t know the life stories of other people you meet here physically, so treat everyone with respect. This is the first lesson, in my opinion, of becoming Love. Respecting everyone. It has just as many implications physically as it does during our Projections.

So, as you can see, Astral Projection is only a Spiritual Practice if you choose to make it such. Likewise, even your physical life requires a choice to be made as to whether it’s a spiritual life or not. ... ractice-2/

I really like your thread, Xanth! On other forums I often read about people being "scared" about AP or its consequences, or feeling angry before or during their projection. So you rightly draw attention to the issue of spirituality. Think and act positively, with love, and any projection will be for good motives.

As you mention, there is nothing wrong per se in people flying about and "sightseeing", so to speak. That, to me, is just a bore. How many times does one want to fly up to a rooftop or such like? But a projection filled with love is much more likely to be productive and fulfilling. It is possible to help others on the astral, just as it is in this physical realm.
