Do not attempt this when you are physically exhausted, or have just finished
eating or at any other time when the blood is likely to be drawn from the
head to other parts of the body. This is important. Your mind must be clear
and active, not cluttered. Thus, a full complement of blood
in the brain is necessary.
Take a bath and cleanse yourself thoroughly, including your mouth and teeth.
In a word, remove from yourself as much extraneous physical matter as you can.
Usually a shower is better than a tub. This cleansing process is very
important, so do not neglect it. It has both a practical and a psychological
effect, practical in that it will free you from both material and astral
contamination, psychological in that you will actually feel mentaly and
Put on a light garment, (or nothing, as you prefer). Select a place where
you will not be interrupted. Sit ina comfortable chair with a back high
enough to rest your head, or lie flat on a bed or couch.
When comfortable and relaxed, take several deep breaths. These should be
even breaths spaced in a rhythmic fashion. Inhale to the count of four,
hold the breath to the count of four, then exhale to the count of four.
The counting should be even and regular, never hurried, never too slow.
When the breathing has been completed,(when you feel totaly relaxed), close
your eyes and visualize the place to which you wish to project. It may be
the next room or it may be miles away; it doesn't matter. But it is important
that you know this place, that you have been there and are familiar with it
in all it's details. Then see yourself in this place. In order to do this
successfully, you must shut out awareness of your present physical surroundings,
shut out all sights and sounds, and see in your mind's eye the appearance
of the place you wish to visit. Give this picture every detail it is possible
for you to recall, the colors, lighting, arrangement of objects, the characteristic
sounds, smells, all you would be aware of if you were physically there.
When you can actually visualize yourself in the place selected, look around.
Observe how things are arranged, who is there, how are they dressed, listen
to what is said. Then return your attention to your body seated in the
chair or lying on the couch.
It is important that you retain full awareness at all times. Do not fall
into a dream state. It is very easy to fall asleep but you must resist it.
Good projection depends upon your ability to control yourself. The dream
state brings illusion and unreality. Therefore, stay awake.
When you open your eyes back in your room, write down the exact hour and
all that you observed. This is the correct way to do this.
Successful etheric projection can be done only by practice and meditation.
Practice meditation for at least 15 minutes twice daily.(three or more times
each day is better).
I recomend Chakra meditations. I also recomend the middle pillar exercise
or similar types of practices of moving light around.
More to come.
