People for centuries have been astral projecting; it has been documented by the ancient Egyptians and Greeks as being a method to experience something beyond our physical realm.

Our consciousness holds no limits. It is designed for exploration, and we as humans possess an astral body to do exactly that. So by projecting your awareness to a different place in time, you’re able to have an out of body experience and visit places beyond your wildest dreams

To learn a little more about astral projection, we looked at Clinical Hypnotherapist, Steve G. Jones’ rope technique.

If you’re totally new to astral projection, this is totally safe. Just relax, keep a clear mind, and know that you always have full control. If you want to go back into your body, you need only to think about it.

This particular technique was pioneered by Robert Bruce.

Step 1: Relax

Relax your mind and body. You may choose to meditate or perform a series of very deep breaths. In and out, always very slowly. Make sure you inhale deeply and that your breaths are not shallow.

If you know a good body relaxation meditation, use it. If not, you can tense your muscles and release them one at a time. Work from your toes to the top of your head.

Step 2: Get into a Hypnotic State

After you feel fully relaxed, you need to enter a hypnotic state where your mind is at the edge of sleep and no further. Now lie down and focus on an object. Stare at it until you can visualize it perfectly even with your eyes closed.

Step 3: Get into a Deeper State of Relaxation

Now it’s time to enter a deeper state of relaxation. Your eyes are still closed and you are still visualizing your chosen object. But now you look around you with your eyes closed. Gaze into the darkness.

After a while, you may see light patterns dance across your eyes. Just ignore them and they will go away. Once they disappear you’ve entered a deeper state of relaxation. You will be so relaxed that you are no longer aware of your physical body. Once you reach this level, it’s time for step 4.

Step 4: Enter a State of Vibration

This is the most vital step and it’s when you enter into a state of vibration. This state may take longer if you are new to this. When you do begin to feel the vibrations, your astral body has begun to leave your physical body. Just acknowledge this and feel the vibrations.

Step 5: Control the Vibrations

Focus on the vibrations as they travel throughout your body. Using your willpower, control them with your mind. As you feel them, try to control the frequency of the waves as well as stopping and starting them.

Once you master changing the frequency and you are sure that you can induce them when needed, you’re ready for step 6.

Step 6: Imagine the Rope


Here is where you will exert your control and willpower. Imagining that there is a long rope hanging right above you. Without opening your eyes or moving your physical body, visualize yourself reaching up towards the rope.

Once you grab a hold of the rope, bring your hand back into your physical body, slow down the vibrations, and end the session.

After you become fully alert and awakened, move on to step 7.

Step 7: Rinse and Repeat – Now Let’s Do the Whole Body

Now that you’ve done an partial separation you’re ready to try the whole body. Repeat the previous 6 steps but this time, don’t stop at just one hand. Imagine your other hand coming out of your physical body and reaching for the rope. Slowly place hand over hand on the rope as if you were pulling yourself up.

You may feel a little dizzy at this point and the vibrations will buzz at a higher frequency. Often people here feel paralyzed or shrink back into their physical bodies. But concentrate on climbing the rope. Don’t stop until you feel your entire self separating from your body.

Finally, you’re free! You will find yourself hovering over your body at this point.

    Sounds good. But I tried AP with a prayer and candle once, and it really worked. I was surprised. Since then I have been having uncontrolled projections at night. It's good.

  • Avatar Leila says:

    Hi Steve, thanks for the directions. I have found that when someone gets to the point where they explain the vibrations, I need more directions. Is there a special way I can isolate and concentrate on them to help me to expand them and stop and start them etc.? I have only ever felt the normal feeling of vibration in my body. Is that what I'm looking for? Thanks again.

  • Avatar Deidre says:

    Astral Projection is similar to remote veiwing, extending consciousness only moving out of the body.
    Would this not then be 95% imagination? 5% intention?… what are your thoughts

  • Avatar Einat says:

    Hi, I'm new to astral travel and only started reading about it lately. I believe I had some quick experiences while dreaming or meditating but here is the thing….last night I read the three affirmation you sent us like you instructed I wrote them down then read them a couple of time before going to bed and guess what? I had an out of body experience last night. I remember I was sleeping but aware that I am flying above and out of my body. I think I was scared and as I felt myself coming back into my body I tried to calm myself down to continue the experience but I guess it was too late and I was back in it. As you described in your own experiences this felt very vivid and real I was conscious for that one unlike some of my dreaming experiences. This is truly exciting and I am looking forward to today's session! Einat

    What vibrations? I just fell asleep trying to do this. And my dogs are getting very annoying. They keep barking and barking and barking. Not a very good astral travel environment.

    I was quite disappointed in tonight's premier with Steve Jones. I was excited and really thought that he would speak and mass hypnotize the audience. Instead, I got to read a lot of material only in an attempt to place an order for the product….. disappointing.

  • Avatar zee says:

    I had an AP that was very memorable. It was the first time I had one to such an extent. I did leave my body during a Reiki session. I was very scared when I came too, I felt a strong pull on my solar plexus . I was petrified because first I was floating and by the time I realized what was going on I got very spooked! I literally gasped so loudly as if struggling for air when I came back to my physical body. I did not even know at the time that I was experiencing AP! The facilitators let me enjoy the experience after making sure I was allright of course. It definitely opened up my mind.

    • Avatar jackie says:

      Interesting… I also left my body when my Reiki teacher was working on me… Once when i was working on a friend with Reiki, she also went on a little trip -"flew out my window and hovered over my roof"… :)

    i wii comment after i have try it.thank you

  • Avatar Dar says:

    I have been having these experiences spontaneously …mostly in my youth… and find them interesting but somehow without much use… sometimes there were encounters with others there in whatever realm this is…. I found the ropes or wires as they seemed always to be the hindrence and then to rise above them was always the hard part…

    Vishen, I must say that I am REALLY disappointed with the Steve Jones webinar. I rescheduled all my meetings, changed my whole day to listen in and all this turned out to be was a BIG sales push. I don't believe I am ONE step closer to becoming a better Astral Projector – and you had me captive for 90 Minutes! This is a pretty poor investment of my time, considering I learnt more from the 2 minutes of Jessica's affirmation session! PLEASE – we don't want to be bombarded with promises if you buy this & promises if you buy that – and for 90 minutes. If you are giving us something free, please make it worth our time or let us know that this is sales call so we have the option to ignore it! I must say his CD write up & description of content looked good – for wasting my evening, I do not want to give him a single one of my hard earned dollars! Who cares to hear about audio teams and birunal beats and titanium technology – just give us the method – we do not need the sales pitch!

  • Avatar Teresa says:

    I hope you will do a better job of screening peddlers on your site. Esp if this is pre-recorded, please make your staff sit thru' these events and evaluate their worth, before posting them to the general public and wasting our time. I got the distinct impression that I was going to learn SOMETHING in 90 minutes.

    i find that whenever i try astral projection, i keep falling asleep and i don't even know that i did until i have dreams. also, i've noticed that trying to astral project while failing makes me dream a lot

  • Avatar franny says:

    Has anybody experienced beautiful music that involves chanting from star-like energies? There is a bit of euphoria involved… not drug-induced. Lasts about 24 hours. Only happened once to me, a mature professional, and am reluctant to share the details. I did hear words in english, "speak to us".

    Is this mental illness (a one-time "hit"), or is this more common? Happened about three years ago.

    • Avatar nadine says:

      did you visit the site vrrpspiritualhealing.com, or alternatively, read the book, laws of the spirit world. by khorshed bhavnagri.this may have answers for you.

    I'm interested to hear more from people about this shaking phenomenon. I've had an experience from time to time over the years in which I energetically (not physically) shake. Up until my reading of these astral projection blogs on finerminds.com, I never connected the two as being possibly related.

    It started when I was a child. Sometimes it gets so violent that I become extremely nauseated and the only thing to stop it is to put my feet on solid ground. Even if I open my eyes or sometimes move my physical body while laying down, the shaking will continue.

    Recently, as I began some energy work training – Reiki and Matrix Eenergetics – the shaking has sometimes occurred if I lay down for a session or meditation. I've tried to stay with it, paying attention to the details of the experience. Still, if I let it go too long, the nausea begins. I stick with it as long as I can but before i've ever had an OBE or any other interesting experience, I must get myself out of it before I vomit.

    I'm going to try to induce this today and then do the rope technique to see if this will help. In the mean time, I would love to hear from anyone who also has experience with the shaking so much that they have to stop the process, and what, if anything, they've done to move through this.

    Thanks for these posts!

    Thanks for all the good info. I also had a astral experience one time when i was meditating. I would normally just let myself relax then fall asleep, after awhile i would normally wake up and feel very good and rested and go about my daily routine, but this time I fell into some kinda trance everything was dark around me very quite when suddenly i awoke to find myself shaking violently. I was seriously freaked out so i tried to move but it was like i couldn't feel my arms, I tried screaming but i just felt like i was being choked. Suddenly I noticed that i was being sucked outta my body, or it felt like someone was pulling me. I tried with all my might to get back in my body but failed the first time and felt myself being sucked out further so i pulled myself back in somehow and everything started going black again and i slipped into a dream. I then felt the shaking again and opened my eyes, I was being sucked out again! For the next few min. I had a similar experience to what happened the first time I felt the shaking. I was eventually able to exert my will enough that I woke myself up but not before I became seriously freaked out

      No I don’t think possession from your astral body would be possible seeing as you already have a body in which you are linked to. But I see what you are getting at ;)
