Astral traveling is when your astral body leaves your physical body. It is also known as astral projection, OBE or an out-of-body experience. Most people have astral travelled at some point in their lives whether they are aware of it or not. We can quite easily have involuntary astral traveling experiences when we are sleeping, physically exhausted or emotionally drained. Jerking awake during sleep, having a falling or flying dream and dejavu are all signs that your astral body has left your physical body before.
Astral traveling is a wonderful experience and you'll want to do it over and over again once you get the hang of astral traveling whenever you wish. When our astral body leaves our physical body we can go wherever we like, visit whoever we wish and explore places which are a great distance away on the physical plane. Advanced astral travellers are even able to bend themselves through time and visit the past and the future. The astral plane allows us to travel without the limitations of things such as time and gravity which we have on the physical plane.
Voluntary astral traveling takes time and practice. It's ideal to read as much as you can about astral traveling before you make a real attempt at doing it. So to increase our involuntary astral traveling experiences here are a few crystals that can help you...
An extremely relaxing and comforting stone. Because we need to go into deep relaxation before leaving our bodies blue calcite helps to facilitate this. Blue calcite also helps the astral body 'float' easily and effortlessly out of the physical body. Blue calcite also helps on the astral plane by putting a block on negative energies.
Iolite increases your awareness during astral traveling. This means that once you come back into your physical body and awake you'll be able to recall your experience with greater ease. Iolite is also an exploration stone so it allows your conscious mind to wander into the realm of your subconscious mind and also to wander into the astral plane.
Ametrine gives one the will to astral travel. You must be determined to astral travel otherwise it won't happen without the will behind it. Ametrine will strengthen your will and desire which is turn will allow your astral body to leave your physical body.
Black tourmaline is a highly protective stone. I recommend that you always use black tourmaline when astral traveling to protect yourself from any energies that may bring your own energy down a notch.
Labradorite is the stone of magic. I absolutely love labradorite and use it most of the time in my work! Labradorite will help your astral body move effortlessly into the astral plane. Most people have trouble doing this so labradorite will be a huge help. It is a stone of adventure and when combined with Iolite (the exploration stone) you'll have a powerful astral traveling combo.
Clear Quartz or Phantom Quartz
As with any spiritual work having a clear quartz or phantom quartz in your presence will increase any energy needed. A quartz crystal will open all of your chakras and enhance the abilities of any other crystals you use. They are versatile crystals and have a profound effect on opening you up to other worlds and realms.
When practicing astral travel use as many of these crystals as you like. Sleep with them under your pillow at night or meditate with a few of them on your chakras. Whatever feels comfortable for you will be the right way to practice astral traveling. Enjoy your adventures and feel free to let me know how you go on the astral plane!
Love and light xx
