As if this process isn't already challenging in itself, it becomes doubly difficult for beginners. There are simple methods to get you started though. The ability to leave your physical body can be difficult, which has led many to learn astral projection. Indeed, it can be tough combining your conscious and subconscious mind in working together various astral techniques that help you transform into a whole new dimension.
One of the more important aspects to successfully do this is being able to achieve a relaxed state of mind. Since your mind is the vital medium that would help you enter that state, it is important to remain focused on your desire to project astrally. In fact, audio recordings are widely available these days since they help set the right mood and level of trance to achieve that relaxed state and reach your aim at projection.
