i've been trying to astral project for a while now. i reach a state, and i dont really know what it is. my body feels like its softly being tugged downwards, and im so focused everything is black. its a really weird feeling, and im not sure what it is. thats my first question, what state am i in when thats happening? second. am i even close to astral projection, or must i meditate for even longer? i reach that state after about two hours of meditation. please help me. thanks.
I think the issue that a lot of people experience is the expectation of a undeniably successful projection. From what I understand, each experience is subjective from person to person. That is to say, no two experiences are exactly alike.
I suggest trustingthat your experience will be successful and take it for what it is versus what you expect it to be.
Many beginners face difficulties while trying to astral travel.
This is because first not being used to it and second being impatient to get the results.
While trying to get into the astral plane and bein able to control yourself,
You must have incredible focus and patience. That is why many people recommend meditation before astral travel.
When it comes to technique, I don't think it really matters but you should try a lot of techniques and see which works for you.
And of course always perform a protection ritual before astral travel like HBRP or LBRP. They have a lot of benefits. First, they act as a protection before visiting the astral plane. Second, it acts as a meditative practice which again helps in astral travel. Third it sets your mind to perform any magickal practice including astral travel
