Step One. Relaxation.

Relaxation's the main key to Astral Projection. Without it, you're going to get nowhere fast. Fortunately, hard as it might seem in this modern world, relaxing doesn't take that much effort. It's just a question of going about things the right way.

Remove all jewellery. Darken the room so no light can be seen through your closed eyelids - but don't black out all light. Loosen your clothing but remain covered so you're slightly warmer than is normally comfortable. And don't forget to choose a time and place where there'll be no noise to disturb you.

Lie on a bed.

Relax. Tell yourself, in your head, that you'll remember all that happens during the session and that it'll be good for you. Concentrate on your breathing and you'll soon get into the right frame of mind.
