Hi there! I have some knowledge of herbs and plenty at my disposal at the current point in time. I've been meaning to try out some astral projection soon and I was wondering if anyone knew any herbs that can be used as an aid to astral projection?
Also, I wasn't sure if this should be in astral projection or herbalism, sorry if I got it wrong ^^'
Just as a precaution and perhaps you already know this but as it is important I will state it here:
I would be very careful when ingesting any herbs. Make sure you do your research first about what you can safely ingest and what quantities are suggested of what herb. Always research before you ingest anything :)
I have a specific grouping of herbs I burn ( & not ingest ) when I work on astral projection, they are:
Clove - for protection while astrally projecting
Eyebright - for increasing psychic ability and improve memory
Horehound - helps with mental clarity during AP
Mugwort - said to enhance astral projection, lucid dreaming and other altered states of conciousness
St. John's Wort - for protection, strength and divination
Violets - draws prophetic dream and visions, stimulates creativity and moments of peace and tranquility
I personally find the combo of these herbs to be very helpful. I add each one into my cauldron and say aloud the intent and use of each when I burn them. So when I add the clove I say something like this aloud when I burn it, "I add clove to my cauldron to protect me while I astrally project". I say something similar with each herb I add.
I actually do a whole ritual to set up my sacred space too before working on AP, and burning these herbs is a big part of it :)
