All the great masters of this earth were accomplished in astral body projection. They could transcend space and time and could go to far off places in their astral bodies. No wonder, they could know and understand events happening thousands of miles away! However, while such expertise may not be possible without years of practice, almost every one can experience this.

Though the popularity of astral projection has reached new unprecedented level, there are still a lot of myths and superstitions surrounding it. Astral projection is nothing but using the astral body to travel to the astral plane. During this travel, though you are still connected with your physical body, your astral body becomes the center of your consciousness. Your body feels lighter and you can easily pass through doors and other solid objects.

Here are some of the myths surrounding the astral body projection:

* Astral projection is unsafe: People think that leaving your physical body can lead it to being possessed by other wandering spirits. However, your astral body is still connected to the physical body so it's completely safe.

* Astral projection cannot be taught: This is untrue. These days there are a lot of techniques which can aid in learning this skill in a fairly short amount of time.

* Astral projection can only be achieved after years of practice: It may take years to achieve the level of expertise by experts in the field. However, that does not mean that the newbies in the field cannot begin astral traveling. In fact anyone with a reasonable amount of concentration, dedication and consistency can work to achieve astral body projection.

The out of body experience is one of the most fascinating aspects of astral travel and it can be experienced by anyone. People who take the journey gain a new insight into the everlasting nature of life!

Astral body projection is almost becoming a lost art. People who have developed the skill and techniques of astral travel are few in number and rare to come across. Most people who are serious about learning travel to India, hoping to find a guru who will agree to teach them. Unfortunately, many of us do not have the financial freedom or time to do such a thing!
