astral projection i one of the herder skills to learn it took me quite a while to do. This is because it takes all of the body to do first you must be able to block out any negative energies you may have Ex ( Bills, romance, mortgage ) you must forget everything negative to Evan get started. Also you must know how to ground your body so that you body does not come detached from your mind, this was a skill i wanted to learn because of the possibilities behind it. I Evan teach these practices to my own Coven and have had some great experience doing so. If you want to know steps to take in order to get started just ask.
Also for future reference i am Neutral so i will answer question on Both Good and Evil Magic.
silwer i was looking on google about this too because i wanted to lear it but they dont give actualy good information it is beter to be teached by some one who know how to do it realy good if any one wana teach me pm me xD :D

Astral Projection is one of the most amazing experiences you can have. It is a process by which the human consciousness temporarily leaves the physical body and functions independently, while the physical body remains still and passive throughout.
There are hundreds of techniques to Astral Projection but here are a few that I can suggest for beginners to learn.
THE ROPE TECHNIQUE
This technique has been formulated by Robert Bruce and is one of the most effective techniques around. A key ingredient to this technique is an invisible rope hanging from your ceiling. This rop will be used to exert dynamic pressure at a single point on your astral body to force its separation from the physical body.
Reach out with your imaginary hands and pull yourself, hand over hand, up the strong, invisible imaginary rope hanging above you. You will feel a slight dizzy sensation inside you as you do this. This feeling of vertigo will intensify the more you pull on the rope.
Keep climbing, hand over hand, ever upwards, and you will feel the vibrations start. Your whole body will seem to be vibratiing and you will feel paralyzed. Concentrate single minded, on climbing your rope. DONT STOP.
Next you will feel yourself coming free from your body. You will next exit your body in the direction of your imaginary rope and will be hovering above your body. You're free at last!
You have to first relax your body. This is a very important step.
Then try to go to sleep, but dont fall asleep. Maintain your awareness between sleep and wakefulness. This is known as the hypnagogic state. Then deepen this hypnagogic state and start to clear your mind of unwanted thoughts. Simply look through your closed eyelids at the blackness in front of you.
Then you must enter an even deeper state of relaxation. The next step is to induce vibrations throughout your body and intensify them. These vibrations have to be controlled and intensified further. This is the moment when the Astral body will seperate from the physical body. You then simply have to "roll-over" and you will find yourself out of your body.
MENTAL PROJECTION - Where the practitioner projects just his Consciousness to some other place, beyond the physical body. It's similar to a day dream only much stronger. You see a mental picture,like watching a movie, but there are no senses per se, taste, feel,hearing, smell etc.
ASTRAL PROJECTION - This is where the Consciousness & the Astral body separate together from the physical body. The practitioner has use of all fives senses plus those used by the Astral body. You may have a sense of flying or floating. Vivid dreams are often natural AP during sleep. It's perfectly safe. Nothing can enter the physical body while on an Astral projection as only you have the exact key. At any sign of danger the Astral body is "reeled in" rather quickly.
ETHERIC PROJECTION - This is where the Consciousness, the Astral body& the etheric body separate together from the physical body. The ectoplasm of the Etheric body can been seen other. The physical body is reduced to a state of near catalepsy during the projection and must be protected from sudden shock or disturbance as there is a rare occurrence of physical death.
BILOCATION - This is where the Consciousness, the Astral body, the Etheric body & the Physical body are in TWO different places at the same time. This is only be used by advanced Magi and then rarely. It involves time & place distortion with a host of other things.
Mental projection is by far the easiest. Just focus the consciousness anywhere the will directs. Astral Projection requires a little more. There as many techniques & systems as there are people.
Here are some guide lines & methods;
METHOD 1 -In a quiet place. Sit in a straight backed chair, up against a wall or on the floor with spine erect. Relax, get comfortable. Inhale & exhale slowly a couple of times. DO NOT FALL ASLEEP!! Use 2/4 breath to start, that is; empty your lungs, easily, then inhale to a mental count of four , hold mental count of two, expel in a four count, pause for a two count, then inhale to a four count etc, etc. Picture an image in the mind's eye of a yourself in a ball of light about 3-5 feet away from you. Continue, slowly, rhythmically while focusing your attention on the image in the mind's eye see it clearly then shift your consciousness or point of awareness...awareness of self, selfhood; the observing I etc. to the ball of light. Including the senses first touch, move your Astral feet & arms, then hearing, then smell, then taste & last of all when you have your other senses plugged in open your eyes and look around. Each sense further focuses you point of awareness in the Astralbody.
Astral sight doesn't depend on the physical eyes. The reason it is listed last on the list is practical. Sometimes for novices the act of opening the eyes in the Astral body triggers a reflex of opening the eyes in the physical body, without the other senses to anchor it the consciousness shifts back to the physical body and you lose the AP. Don't worry about your Astral sight at the very start work first on being sure of shifting the consciousness. That is the first step to success. The rest of the senses MUST follow. If you have to break it down even further work on hearing, smell, touch or Small Astral body movements one at a time first. Then work on sight.
METHOD 2 - Start a mental projection and will your Astral body along.
METHOD 3 - Imagine that your Astral body is separating from your physical body out the head chakra. You will sense a rapid vibration with a rising or floating sensation let it happen don't block it. When complete check your five senses in the described order.
Using the Astral body requires only that you mentally shift gears into it, no matter what method you use. Astral projection takes patients, practice & persistence.
Several things govern how quickly you can gain mastery;
- noises & distractions
- how relaxed you are
- breathing technique
- how well focused you are
- achieving the mental imagery necessary
- transfer of consciousness
