This is how you get into the astral planes:
See before you what can be seen with your mind's eye. If you must, project something at first, then look around it for things which you do not project. As you look around everything else will start to come into focus and take form around you. DO NOT THINK ANY WORDS. Any sounds will fuck up the process.
There is a skill which you ought to practice to get good at APing and it's quite simple really but a bit hard to do. You must see numbers in your mind (preferably elaborate fancy numbers in a beautiful font like I visualize) and count them up but only with seeing them. So you see 1, you see 2, you see 3, etc. and count up and then backwards. It is very hard not to think / sound out each number as you see them but once you get the hang of seeing the numbers without thinking them then you will have the skill you need to AP.
This exercise, quite simple in nature, is meant to overcome the conditioned programming of your mind and to let you use only your mind's eye to do what must be done. It is important that as you phase into the astral planes you do not talk at all until you're fully there. Even when you're there start by thinking thoughts and maybe communicating with another entity telepathically before you think about moving your mouth to sound out words out loud. You will know the difference…
Also when you are going there start by just looking around. Do not move at first. Eventually once you're more there you can start moving and after awhile it will be clear as day.Now here are some odd things you can do in the astral planes:
1. Telepathy. Normally you experience this as empathy in the waking. Empathy lets you feel what others feel. In the astral telepathy is way more advanced and you can mind-read too with some difficulty and transmit your thoughts with less difficulty.
2. Levitation and telekinesis. Hard to do and generally a massive waste of astral energy. If the rules of the plane you are in don't allow it then just don't bother or do it once and enjoy getting prematurely disconnected after draining your energy… just to find out.
3. Energy manipulation, shielding, banishment, enchanting, and many other forms of magic.
4. Possession; you can possess people, access their memories and thoughts, and if you fuck up forget who you are at least temporarily and end up living and thinking you're someone else Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
