Visualizing the Astral Target

One key ingredient to progressing your astral skills is improving your target visualization. A number of authors have suggested that desire and the right kind of visualization stimulate the force centers and openings to the astral realms.

To do this it is important that your target be well known and a non threatening location. Many times just another room in your home will suffice. Pick an object that you really feel a connection to or a strong desire to see. As you relax into the first deeper states of consciousness hold that desire and visualize the object. This will draw your consciousness toward it. If you are new to projecting then find a location close to your body to ease the separation and newly discovered feelings.

Note that many authors have written that your astral vision will not be the same as physical reality. Keeping that in mind will help you understand what you see when visualizing the target - the target may be distorted, flow, ebb, glow, etc.

An Astral Bubble

Received this report from a blog reader:

Last night I had an experience where I felt paralyzed. I wa sinside a bubble, above earth, miles high. I was surrounded by darkness, but... I kept hearing beautiful voices of children singing beautifully. There seemed to be hundreds of them, not around, but I could hear them in my mind. I streched my hand to touch the bubble and it wobbled. Then, I tried moving around in the bubble whereas, the bubble itself moved with me and I could "see" the darkness around me and discern a figure that seemed to be the earth--in the far distance. I could control the direction! I then, decided to break free from the paralysis (I alway do that whenI feel uncomfortable) and woke up, but my eyelids were too heavy and had a hard time keeping awake; so I moved my body for about 5 minutes and then, went back to sleep.
