What is lucid dreaming?
In this video I explain what lucid dreaming and astral projection is and things to be aware of if you decide to try it out. In short lucid dreaming is waking up in a dream and astral projection is consciously projecting out of your body. Even though it sounds incredible for those who are new to this, it is very real and quite common.
Lucid dreaming and astral projection have become more and more popular practices within spiritual work. You can find tons of information about it on the internet, and learn techniques on how to wake up in a dream or astral project.
I was taught spells
When I first managed to project myself out of my body 13-14 years ago, there was hardly any info about it online. Fortunately I was part of a course that supported me in the process with teachers who had been astral traveling a lot.
They even taught me spells that I would say in the astral realm, when negative beings appeared. I am very grateful for this support, because even though I had a few beautiful astral experiences I also had some frightful experiences.
Things to be aware of when lucid dreaming
Even though it is not dangerous to astral travel, since you are tied to the physical body with a silver cord, it can give you some pretty frightful experiences that may be harmful emotionally. It may also take your focus away from living here and now, being present in your physical body as well as deprive you with a lot of sleep.
- Have a conscious intention of why you want to practice this and to be really firm in your “why”.
- Since the astral realm shows and mirrors everything you have inside, it is also important to have done quite a lot of healing and inner work before you endeavour into astral traveling
- Have a support system, someone to guide you
- Make sure you don’t overdo it, so you’ll deprive yourself of sleep
- Be aware of spiritual bypassing, that you are not astral traveling to escape this incantation. Growth and healing happens when you deal with the traumas, not running away from it.
That being said, it is possible to heal things in the astral as well. But I believe you need a teacher to guide you well in how to do so.
