ASTRAL PROJECTION MEDITATIONS
Relax through breathing. That is, exhale all the air from your lungs until there is none left. THEN exhale a little more. There is always a little more than you think since lungs are "inflated". They are usually 1/4 to 1/2 full even before we breathe in. Once all the old air is cleaned from your lungs, inhale deeply and then hold it for 1/2 the time it took you to breath out. You always want to breathe out twice as long to get the old oxygen-poor air out of your lungs. There is a reason for this. The new, fresh oxygen when held for several seconds (as long as you possibly can so that it's not too uncomfortable) results in a kind of high that is similar biologically to the effect of morphine. However, this process does not result in addiction or the overall devastation that drugs cause. In short, it is an effective way to wind down and achieve a relaxed state without negative consequences.
Once you have relaxed your body, imagine the following:
You are walking up to an indoor pool of water. You step into the water...feel it against your skin...cool, but not cold...and then you step down the concrete steps one at a time...the water slides up your calves and touches your knees...and you feel the cool water for the first time on your thighs...the water is refreshing against your flesh...and you allow your fingers to trace over the smooth surface for the first time...then you hands and arms to your elbows...and when the water overcomes your waist and chest...you tip back to allow your back, neck and hair to be saturated by the crystal waters...and as you lean forward you feel the weight of the water on your hair...you take a deep breath and tip forward so that your face touches the water...and here finally...your body slips beneath the surface of the water...but...you remain behind...you hover above the...crystal pool of water...you have just slipped out of your body through the back of your head...you are free from the confines of your human shell...away from your body...when you look down at the water...you see nothing...no body...just water...
