Well there are a lot of people on here, and many of them are into astral projection, there is also a forum for astral projection. If you want to learn more about that go through the forum.
Astral Projection is when you soul ventures to the other realm or just out of your body. In the astral state you can turn into a animal (as I believe only your spirit animal). Remember in real life you can't change your DNA using magick.
Astral Projection is when you are asleep but you are awake in your mind. Warning don't get startled or excited because you will probably snap back into the physcal form.
