Astral projection is a much desired skill. It allows us to separate our spiritual selves from the trappings of our physical bodies. When we astral project, we are able to explore various planes of existence and gain knowledge that cannot be gained from the material world in which we live our day-to-day lives. The problem is, astral projection without any aid is very, very difficult. This difficulty comes in because our minds have been trained since we were little to accept that certain things are impossible. We no longer actively believe we can astral project- but your subconscious does. In fact, it wants to astral project, but your conscious mind actively blocks it.
Using binaural beats to astral project is a nice short cut to the state of mind required to project. Bear in mind that binaural beats will not make you project – that will take some practice and effort – but they will bring you to the meditative state that otherwise would take a long time to reach. Before we get into how to astral project with binaural beats, two questions must be answered first. Firstly, “what are binaural beats?” and secondly, “what is the meditative state needed for astral projection?”
In regard to the first question, binaural beats are beats of varying frequency that are played in each ear. For example, in one ear you hear a frequency of 150 Hz while in the other ear you hear a frequency of 155 Hz. Your brain does not like this discrepancy, so in order to remedy it, creates a third tone – one that has a frequency of 5 Hz (the difference between the two main frequencies). The brain resonates in tune with the third “tone,” thus helping you reach the required meditative state for astral projection. That brings us to the second question.
The short answer is that you need to be in a deep trance – fully awake and mindful, but with your body completely asleep – as if you were hypnotized but controlling your own hypnosis. To achieve this, you must reach the state of theta brainwaves – a state associated with dreaming. Now, here are five simple steps to get you projecting:
1). Put your headphones in your ears and press play.
The first step to using binaural beats is, of course, to use them. Find the binaural beats track that is most pleasing to you (it can be pure tone or mixed in with another sound – perhaps the drizzle of rain or birds chirping in the rain forest), or you can use an online binaural beat generator here. Be sure to use headphones – otherwise the brain will not create the third tone.
2). Relax your body.
Lay down and tense up your muscles than release. Feel your body tighten then notice the relief as you let go of the tension.
3). Relax your mind.
Focus on one point. If you are new to meditation, you can just focus on the sound you “hear” coming from the third tone. It is this step that will bring you to the deep meditative state you need to be in in order to astral project. It is also here that you will need to consciously take over. Therefore, it is important that while you listen to the binaural beats you neither let your mind wander nor become passive. Stay focused and aware.
4). Detach yourself.
Once your body feels heavy, it is time to leave it. There are various techniques for doing this – but the premise is visualization. Visualize yourself leaving the body. You can focus on the ceiling if you want, visualize a rope to pull yourself out, etc. You may have odd sensations coursing through your body as you feel the vibrations of detachment. For the unexperienced, these sensations can be frightening. Do not be alarmed – such feelings are perfectly normal. Just let your conscious pass from your sleeping body to your awakened spirit.
Once your spiritual self separates from your physical body, it is time to explore higher planes of existence. Your journey is up to you and your experiences are for you to have. Once you have projected, you can explore the world and existence on levels that are unimaginable to those who have not. When you wish to return, visualize yourself going back.
Astral projection allows us to ascend to new places and gain insight and knowledge that can help in our day to day lives. Unfortunately, due to the demands and teachings of our world, we have largely lost our ability to project easily without help. The good news is that there is help. While binaural beats will not project you, they will bring you to the state of mind you must be in for projection to work. A couple quick caveats – if you have epilepsy, binaural beats may trigger a seizure and people with emotional issues may find that those feelings are amplified by using binaural beats. So, if you have either of the above conditions, consider using alternative meditation techniques.
