I am intrigued by the idea of having your consciousness leave your body & enter the astral plane so I have been studying on how to do it. I am 15 & have only recently discovered this remarkable thing. I was wondering how I could do this however & if anyone had any tips since I seem to be stuck and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right.

I start off by listening to a downloaded binaural beat whilst relaxing myself by laying on my back with my arms at my side. My eyes are closed at this point and I'm merely breathing in and out deeply. After about 3-5 minutes I will start to see swirling blue lights in my eyes and my arms and legs are tingling. I can't get beyond this point however & this is where I'm not sure what to do?


Additional Details:
I should add I'm usually moving my fingers a little bit and my toes to feel the tingling sensation because I was told doing this could lead me into the vibrational phase?

No don't move anything. Your swirling blue lights are nural discharge. Just gently watch them. You should be trying in the morning. When you wake up and feel the groggy feeling like when you really don't want to go to school. That is when your mind is prime to make it happen.

You are also 15. While this interesting dint get to caught up in it. Just make it an occasional practice and your day will come...

Take care.

Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

I was thinking about maybe not going to bed until 1:00am and trying to do it again or setting my alarm to 4:00am and trying then.

The best time to do something like this is when you have time...Astral Projection...is just that ...Projection...your body isn't going anywhere...but your mind will...you are projecting your mind onto the empty canvas of the astral plane.  Your body will be with you...(even though in reality it will still be on the bed).  But to project your mind somewhere else...you have to 'project' your mind.  Sounds like you are waiting for something to happen...YOU are what is happening...go there...be there...experience 'there'...but like White Crane said...don't get hung up on it.  Like the old song says, Where ever you go, there you are.

What do you mean? You're right I am waiting for the vibrations to come but I don't know what to do from this point on?

What I mean is...you are limiting yourself...you are 'waiting' for something to happen...and so...your mind is still connected to the 'earthly' plane.  What do you think the Astral Plane looks like?  Whatever that is...picture yourself there.  If you have no idea...picture yourself floating in space...forget your bed...forget your room...forget vibrations...forget that you are anywhere...just focus on floating in space and go with it.
It is important to understand Ocean that this is a mind exercise...you do things in your dreams that are unbelievable...you see things in your dreams that are unbelievable...it is the same thing...except ...you are awake...your mind will choose the imagery...just go with it...maybe after 'floating' in space for awhile...you'll see a bubble or a tree or anything...go to that bubble...go to that tree ...go and explore...or just 'fly around' and look to see what you can see.  It is a deep meditative state.

Yes. You will ultimately  have better results that way.

I appreciate all the help guys, I am going to have another go at it now and imagine myself floating in space as soon as the tingling feeling comes, I will forget about the vibrations & stick to floating in space and see what happens.

You have to stop waiting and expecting and treating this like an linear process. Hard to do as our minds like to organise everything that way, but this part of the training and when reaching a higher consciousness via meditation ( alt consciousness )  you step out of that linear mode both perception wise and awareness wise. btw where and what is your intention doing while you are waiting ;) ?

When i project I don't give a monkeys what my body is doing or not doing. I am not even thinking about that or wasting my precious energy and mental resources on monitoring what my physical is doing.  If you are caught up monitoring your physical awareness and body, guess what ? that's where your awareness will anchor, part of the training is getting your base mind to accept its ok to let go of the material plane without having to die. Projection is about waking up to your awareness level rather than 'learning to leave your body'.  Your consciousness already exists on many bandwidths / layers, including the astral level. So what you are learning to do here is to connect to your awareness, which you can learn to control and shift.  When your awareness shifts to the astral level, you engage your consciousness / energy body that is already there.

It's a bit like saying we all know and accept the internet is around us, we can't see it or perceive when we are not directly sitting down with an interface to connect us to it. Well think of your mind as like this. In your mind is like a router, your awareness is the key that with your intention you can just make it "dial in"...  your third eye is like your screen/ interface and your perceptions are like the reader / interpreter for the codes and programming allowing you to read and make sense and interact with it.

When you are too focused in linear process and what needs to happen next before your mind allows the next step,  its the equivalent of being stuck at the first gate, its like in the analogy above forgetting to plug the monitor / interface in. The connections are all there and running in the background waiting for you,  but you won't see or experience anything until you shift your focus to your screen/interface.

I understood some of this hahaha when I'm lying there I'm not thinking about anything but focusing on these blue lights going around my eyes. I also sometimes tell my mind to let go & relax in my head. Would thinking about floating about in space help me?

Hey guys, just wondering what the best way is to get past the tingling sensation I get when trying to astral travel since I find myself practically stuck at this stage. I'm unsure as to what to do next since people just say to continue relaxing but I tried and after 10 minutes nothing had happened.

One of the strengths of the human psyche is imagination and creativity. Imagination allows mental constructs to be built which can help facilitate things. Using an analogy is one of the best ways to pass a construct of understanding from one mind to another. In other words, unleash that part of your mind. Get creative with this. The computer/ internet analogy is just one example that gives your mind something it understands to follow. If floating in space would represent that "switch" to you and help you keep your focus on where it should be then try it.  There is technique along these lines called phasing which is used for mental projection which doesn't require half the amount of energy and can used in meditation or while multitasking, ie driving a car, doing housework.

P.S I have merged your other thread into this as one as one thread is sufficient enough :tu:

I have recently tried the space technique which didn't really work for me, I tried the invisible rope technique with my eyes closed and that didn't work but with my eyes open I imagined the rope hanging from my ceiling I reached out with my imaginary (invisble) hands and started pulling myself up, I felt a small vibration at my feet as If I was slowly hardly noticeably shaking a little bit? any ideas?

What is your body positioning while trying to do this?
