Lucid Dreaming vs Astral Projection

Leave a comment Standard

Before I get started I just want to make it clear that I am not a seasoned lucid dreamer. With that said this is simply coming from the perspective of a clairvoyant and someone who has only had a few out of body experiences. 

I remember watching two different youtube videos on how you can project from a lucid dream and after hearing the explanation I was little confused because to me it sounds like they are in an out of body state that they are just calling a “lucid dream” and then with intention going back to their physical body while already in an optimal state for projection and then actually project into the astral. Now from what I hear it can be easier to project from a lucid dream than going through sleep paralysis to get to a point of projection. That part makes sense to me because it has not been easy getting through sleep paralysis.

After watching these videos and doing some looking myself (as a clairvoyant) it seems to me that lucid dreaming and astral projection are simply the same expect the how you got there was different. In a lucid dream, you typically go to sleep and are unconscious. Something then happens in the dream and you become lucid and aware. With astral projection you are conscious through the entire experience of leaving your physical body. 

I watched a youtube video recently and the guy was explaining what he thought was the difference between lucid dreams and astral projection. What he said made sense to me. He went on to say how they are all the same, however the main “difference” between them all is how aware you are out of the body. Perhaps it just the level of lucidity is what makes us create different categories. Because when I look it clairvoyantly, they all look the same –  you are out of your physical body and are in the astral. 

People talk about their different experiences when in a lucid dream vs a projection. My theory is that, again, how lucid are you? My other question is, where are you on the astral? How does that affect your “experience?” Do any of these factors cause people to think they are experiencing some other form of a dream experience? I don’t know… Also something to consider is this: are you a point of light out in the astral? Or do you have control over a fully developed astral body? 

What does it mean to be a point of light out in the astral? To me it simply means you the “being”, you the “soul” are out of your physical body with no form, no energetic body. Wait, don’t we all have astral bodies? Well, we all have the ability to generate one, but our experiences both in the body and out of the body can affect our ability to create an astral body and the general form our our dream body. This is why exercise and meditation can be so important. When you exercise you get your energy in movement. If you can move energy throughout the energy system in the physical body, then you can create an astral body much easier. You can also run energy in mediation. You can cycle your own energy throughout your energy system while meditating. I think mediation and exercise directly affect our ability to recall dreams, the overall development of your dream body and can help with having better overall sleep. 

So, to me lucid dreaming and astral projection are the same. I think with both you are just out of your body, but perhaps with a different level of awareness. I also think that if you are just a spec of light vs in control of a dream body will greatly affect the experience. And how developed is your astral body? Certain days might be different. You could be missing an astral leg. Do you have an energy blockage in your actual physical leg? How does affect your dream experience? 

There are so many factors, but I think it is all the same essentially. Keep in mind this is just a theory. I still have a lot of learning to do. Perhaps I will confirm this with having more out of body experiences or perhaps when I have more OBEs I will change my mind.

What are your thoughts?

Learning Astral Projection

Leave a comment Standard

I started to do a very extensive healing on myself. One that I would only normally do for clients that were long distance. When I did this, experienced a very vivid dream. And that is where it all started… Well, actually it all started back in 2006…

When i started to get into spirituality, the first thing I wanted to do was to astral project. I didn’t have any success, but I did start taking meditation classes at a psychic school. From there I entered a year long clairvoyant training and then went on to do more spiritual trainings. Over the course of my entire life, I have had three lucid dreams. 

  1. I was in my late teens, living at my parents and I fell asleep in my room.  I woke up in my dream and came to realize I could control my dream, so I decided to manifest a Rammstein Concert right in front of me. And…. that is exactly what happened. The dream didn’t last long though.
  2. I was living in Chicago, probably in my early 20’s and fell asleep in my apartment. I woke up in my parents house and it was dark. I noticed my glowing arms and then looked at the wall. I thought to myself, let’s see what happens if I put my hand through the wall. I started to put my hand through the wall and it felt very dense. At that point I got scared and woke up in my bed in Chicago.
  3. The last lucid dream I had happened in Chicago. I was at a friends house sleeping on the floor. I woke up in my dream and it was pitch black all around. I noticed light below me and shifted my attention there. I looked down and started to recognize my two friends sitting in the living room. I then noticed my physical body sleeping on the floor. I got scared and woke up.

Despite having an affinity for dreaming, for many years I went without keeping a dream journal or sometimes not even remembering my dreams. But that is all changing now. I have been keeping a dream journal for at least a week now and have attempted to Astral Project numerous times. I have failed every time, but I am making progress. It is this process of letting go of fear and dropping expectations. Essentially, I get comfortable in bed and consciously start to put my body to sleep while keeping my mind awake. It is the most bizarre experience I’ve had in a long time. What starts to happen is my legs and arms start to lose feeling and go numb. Then this numb feeling climbs up to my chest and that is when my heart rate picks up and I feel like i might die. I tried a few more times and finally moved beyond this. Another weird thing is when your lips, tongue and throat start going numb. This is also a very uncomfortable stage to work through. You have to keep yourself propped up just enough so saliva will just fall down your throat so you don’t have the urge to swallow. Once you try to move, it slows down and even reverses this whole process of putting your body to sleep. 

There are a few stages that follow putting your body to sleep that I have not gotten to yet, but once I do I will write a blog about it. I am really excited about this. I am just going to keep going until I have my first astral projection. I imagine from that point things will get a little easier. I really wonder how succeeding at this will affect me as a creator. I feel as though I could really enhance my creativity. 

Anyway that is what I have been up to lately. My wife and I are leaving Tucson, AZ and will be heading to southern California for the winter. Until next time…

Find Your Freedom,
