The Dangers of Astral Projection

My interests lie primarily in metaphysics and the paranormal, owing to a lifetime of strange experiences.

Astral projection can be a useful tool in a person’s spiritual journey, and even if you don’t choose to incorporate it into your beliefs, it’s still an interesting concept. Like all spiritual practices, certain cautions need to be taken, and misconceptions must be cleared up.

Out of Body Myths

Two of the biggest misconceptions I’ve come across are the fear of getting "lost" while on your journey and of your body being susceptible to possession.

Neither of these things are possible, and there are ways to ease the fear of them when you first start practicing astral projection.

When you start on your travels, your soul never actually leaves your body. A good way to think about it is that you’re making a copy of yourself, and exploring through that. Like when you dream, you stay in your body, but your attention is directed elsewhere.

This means that whenever you want to return to your body, you can. If something scares you enough, the only thing that will happen is that you’ll wake up safely, though perhaps afraid or unsettled.

This leads to the second myth. Since you’re not truly absent from your body, nothing else would be able to get in without your conscious permission.

It’s unlikely that physical harm coming to your body while you’re otherwise occupied will happen, either. For one, if you’re practicing cautiously, you will either have someone else there with you, or your physical safety will have been secured beforehand. For another, as soon as danger first appears, you’ll wake up to deal with the problem.

Astral Projection Dangers

Astral projection isn’t without its risks, but most of them stem from psychological impact, rather than anything arcane.


Once you get the hang of astral projection, you may want to do it all the time. Like all activities, once it reaches the obsessive level, the rest of your life will begin to suffer. It’s the lack of balance, rather than the astral projection itself, that causes the damage in this case.

Improper Grounding

The very first thing you should learn how to do is to ground yourself before taking the leap into astral projection. There are countless methods, and there’s nothing wrong with figuring out one of your own,if it works best for you.

I’ve had problems with grounding for various reasons, before. It’s a common problem, but one that can be easily remedied with a little extra study and self-awareness

Lack of grounding can result in things like poor concentration, poor social interaction and even physical problems, usually based in the feet or legs.

The physical problems are the result of your body trying to force you back to earth, and usually can’t be explained medically. They can range from ankle pain to painful blisters. It’s the pain that pulls at you until you fully return to the every day world.


It is fully possible to return from an astral voyage and experience profound exhaustion. If you don’t know to watch out for it, the feeling can be startling and somewhat depressing. Let yourself sleep, explore your psyche in any way you feel comfortable, and above all, care for yourself.

Spirit Attachment

It is possible for a lower spirit to attach to you if you haven’t properly shielded. Again, this comes with being ill-prepared to actually take your voyage in the first place. However, it isn’t likely if you keep your intention clear and your protection up.

Tips for Positive Astral Projection

These problems can all be avoided by taking the right steps and keeping a few things in mind.


The most important part of astral travel is to have a clear and positive intent from the start. The more positive your attitude and stronger your intent, the less likely you are to suffer from any of the above. You can hold your intent through using affirmations, prayer, and other methods.


By making sure your connection with the Earth and the physical world is solid, you’ll be free to let your consciousness take the trip to the astral plane. It also eases the transition back, as well. When you do return, take a few extra steps to ground yourself.

Grounding and Protection Meditation

Some people find eating something helps, while others benefit from walking barefoot or doing some light exercise. Visualization or concentrating on your root chakra are also great tools when it comes to grounding yourself.

Spiritual and Physical Protection

Although it’s highly unlikely that you will come to harm during your travels, it’s still a good idea to set your spiritual protections in place before you start. This adds another level of mental security, which means you can concentrate more at the task at hand.

The physical protection is a given. It’s immeasurably more difficult to sink into any sort of meditative state when you’re worried about what’s happening in the physical world around you.

Set Time Aside

Another way to avoid not being grounded enough is to set enough time aside to practice. If you’re interrupted abruptly once you’ve started your astral journey, you’ll wake up too abruptly. When this happens, you may feel as if your body doesn’t “fit” right, and you’ll more than likely feel extremely dazed for quite a while.

By letting others know not to disturb you for a certain amount of time, you’ll be able to avoid this eventuality.

Surround Yourself with Positive People

Part of the journey is the people you take it with. By surrounding yourself with positive, loving and, most importantly, trustworthy people, you will benefit from their influence, as they will benefit with yours. You’ll be able to freely share your experiences with each other and work on solving any problems which might arise together.

Life Balance

Since astral travel is only a tool to use towards higher enlightenment, you must remember to balance your life properly. Spirituality is an extremely part of many people’s lives, but so are their professional life, social life, health, and family. If you neglect any one of these things in favor of another, problems will arise.

By finding the right balance, you’ll be able to foster a sense of positivity and growth.

Astral travel isn’t something that should be feared. When you take the time to learn how to do it correctly and continue to care for yourself, you’ll draw all sorts of positivity into your life.

    That sounds so frightening! It does sound like you could have projected astrally by accident, but even though it's scary, it can't hurt you. Since you already lucid dream, read up on how to control your dreams better. I haven't astral traveled in my sleep before (that I can remember off the top of my head), but I have read that if you set an intention before sleep to stay in your body and receive a restful sleep, it could help. I'd also advise looking into mindfulness and meditation, especially if you're dealing with a particularly stressful period of time in your life. Good luck!

    just recently, i had sleep paralysis again and i believe I may have astral projected but it was a complete accident. It felt like I had died in my dream, and then a second later I saw myself asleep in my bed and I was walking around my room. I was terrified the whole time since it felt like my body was shaking very very fast and i wasn't sure what was going on. It seemed so real, I was fascinate but so so scared because this had all happened during a nightmare. I've been lucid dreaming for as long as I can remember but this seemed different. I've been scared to go to sleep since, but I would like to explore astral projection... how would i carry on safely and less fearful? I'm open to any comments or advice, thank you!!

    I don't really think this is astral projection so much as your subconscious commenting on something in your life. It sounds like you were trying to maybe warn your family about something that was going to happen in your dream, or at least inform them, and you were feeling unheard. Does that feeling mirror something you're going through in your life today?

    As we get older, we do tend to lose track of this angle of our lives unless we work to maintain that nature. Kids and teenagers are usually far more sensitive the non-physical aspects of existence, probably in large part because adults' minds tend to be crowded with concerns like bills and the like.

    No apology needed!

    Kids are usually far more likely to experience things like astral projection, spirit sightings, and similar experiences, so I'm not surprised you've experienced them.

    I am so sorry to see you're having such a hard time coping with the world we're living in. I've felt similarly before, but I've found that looking for the people doing good in this world has helped me out immensely. I've also noticed those depressed feelings tend to get worse in the winter, so this year, I'm trying a full spectrum light every day in addition to regular exercise and cleaner eating. If the feelings get to be too much for you, I strongly advice getting help from a therapist, or at the very least talking to someone you can trust. As hard as this life can be, there are always options, be it astral projection, religion, or self-care. Please know I wish you all the best.

    Sorry for skipping all around, but I've had recurring dreams, too. Mine were usually either of trying to cross a rope bridge that hung down in a raging river or of a similar shadowy world. The shadowy world, however, was because I couldn't see above anyone's knees in the dream and when I was attacked, I couldn't cry out above a whisper. I don't think those are metaphysical in nature, but psychological. They always happen in times of extreme, prolonged stress. You might benefit from keeping a dream journal to chronicle your dreams in relation to what's happening in your life. When I kept one, I was surprised at just how closely my waking life and dreaming life were related.

    Again, wishing you all the best and sending love/light your way. Please take care, ok?

    It would be a good idea to submit this to the question section. I personally don't know how to bring on an OBE, but that doesn't mean there isn't a way to do it.

    Hello, ive never really talked about this stuff to anyone but my twin brother, since most of these dreams or reality's happened when we were young. But anyway, i have had recurring dreams since i was little, and now that i am older and know a little more about what ive seen. it honestly scares me. i have been in pitch black warped hallways, with shadowy creatures on the walls. i dont remember them talking to me at all though, but that place did have a distinct smell, (can anyone else smell in their dreams?). Also, i'm pretty sure I've astral projected before when i was young, i remember watching myself sleep, and walking down the hallway. Unaware at the time i was astral projecting. But i am a very down the earth person, and i will be getting back into astral projecting, hopefully i can learn somethings from a different plane of existence, is it possible to just stay there? instead of this life of living just to die. Going to work everyday just for nothing? i believe in God, and i know suicide isnt really something that should be done. but im tired of living in this world of greed, death, hunger. Anyone else feel the same? or am i just crazy??? One more thing, I know its commonly called "deja-vu", but some nights when i sleep, i have what i called a "vision", i dont remember it after i wake up, but when whatever ive experienced in that dream happens in real life in the future, i have this very strong feeling like ive been there before, but i feel like everytime that happens, i should of died. I cant explain it... Sorry for the huge message.

    Well I have always been curious about OBEs for many years. I've had dreams about leaving my body, but I believe these were just experiences of imaginative lucidity.

    I wonder though, if you have tips for bringing on an OBE or if you believe that you can prove you've left your body by manipulating things in your room, or leaving a sign such as leaving a book in a doorway or sticking a note on a wall?

    These are things that I've tried and failed at ---- perhaps I should have inserted this in the questions section.

    When i was about 10 i read about astral projection and thought id try it. I easily did this and what i remember was a dark blue black ski and a zillion stars. Then about 100 black tadpole type things started chasing me and i was absolutely terrified and “dove” back in my body. I was panting and terrified and awake then. I never tried it again. I remember it and im 61 now. As an aside i also have a “gift”, once a curse because i was ridiculed of what i refer to as “the knowing” i just know things, long story, but ive started to use white light to heal people and a dog and i cant explain it. The dog was in tremendous pain and on narcotics daily. He has been unaffected by pain now for weeks! Whats happing?

    As I am now a college student (again), I don't have as much time or energy as I'd like to reply to comments, but there are a few things I can say to some common themes in the comments below.

    The first is sleep paralysis. I've had this happen to me before, too, and it really is terrifying. However, it has a basis in medicine. When we sleep, our brains turn off the mechanism that allows for muscle movement, therefore paralyzing us. It's perfectly natural, and our body's way of allowing our systems time to heal. Sleep paralysis happens when we begin waking up, but our brains don't time the natural process correctly. We're still dreaming, but we're becoming aware of our surroundings, which is why there are so many scary images, sounds, and sensations involved.

    When it happened to me, I was dreaming of being attacked by a bear, and it was only after the paw passed through me a couple of times that I jolted awake. I don't think there's a treatment for chronic sleep paralysis, but if it's happening to you, that's the term to research.

    Next is lucid dreaming - This happens when you know you're dreaming while it's actually happening. With time, you may be able to actually train yourself to control what happens in the dream. I'd advise studying the signs that show up in those types of dreams, and discerning what personal meaning they have for you.

    Good luck to you all!

    I swear this story on my daughter, everone close to me knows it well. One day I stayed over a friends house and he had a book on astral projection. I was fascinated. I tried and tried for nights, finally I started having strange dreams, the last "dream" I had it was like I was awake but I knew I was dreaming and could see a man in my laundry room trying to say something to me but no sound would come out of his mouth. I woke up to someone screaming Phillip in my ear, and I was also on my back, I never sleep on my back. I stopped fooling around with all that promptly.

    Please just please hear me out. We need to gather astral proctors they have the freedon neccessary to fight back and release our souls from our captors so that when we die we will trully be free to be or do anything not be under some smarter races thumbs that exist on a plane we used to call home

    I had a very similar situation to Suzzy and was wondering if you could maybe shed some light on the first one for me as it's the only one that really scared me & left me feeling dazed & confused. I also felt stuck like I couldn't move but for me I didn't even leave my home on this one. It was actually just to my living room. I was sleeping and I kept calling out for my fiancée who had fallen asleep on the couch that night but I somehow consciously realized that there was no sound actually coming out of my mouth & that's when the feeling of being stuck hit me. After calling for him a few more times I somehow realized that he wasn't hearing me as I said before I wasn't actually making a sound, I got up and walked out there but as I was walking out there everything was completely dark not like the lights are out dark but like a complete void of space darkness and as I woke up I realized that my physical body had never actually left my bedroom. Upon waking up I felt totally exhausted, drained & dazed. I've also experienced floating on several occasions sometimes it's over a city with tall skyscrapers, another time it was over a forest, once it was over a bunch of empty farm fields with nothing planted on them. I've even gone to places that I've physically been to before like the town I lived in before I moved here. I never go to bed with the intention of doing this it just happens to me. I didn't even know anything about astral projection until I told a friend about all of the floating experiences I was having and she told me about it so I started researching it for myself. I unconsciously do it quite often now but would love to be able to consciously do it and have more control over it. Do you have any advice on how I could do that?

    Hi my name is suzzy I'm 21 years old I'm a little confused on what has been happening to me I was wondering if I can get some help.. ever seens i was little i would have precognitive dreams up till today i still continue having them. Anyways its been about for times that this unusually thing happens to me, I been dreaming about random events and in my dreams I tell myself that it isnt really that I'm dreaming and this causes for my dream to repeat its self 3 times and in those 3 times I feel like I cant move and I feel stuck like I cant wake up and I only wake up once my boyfriend wakes me up, and once I wake up I dont know if i'm dreaming or if I'm awake till I pinch myself.. one of those 5 times I went to sleep worried due to the fact that I had a huge argumment with my mom that same night the same thing happend but in my dream I went and visit my mom to her house and I stared at her. Than the next day my mom told me that She saw me standing in the corner of her bed staring down at her and that she got really scared because I was staying in my friend's house so it was impossible.. last night it happened again and i woke up with a really bad headeach and really drain and dizzy I would like to know what is happening to me..

    I have experienced it since a child and have seen Ghosts most of my life. When I travel i’m totally conscious and i go through a worm hole. The hole appears when something needs to be uncovered. When I go through I come out the other side sometimes in anthers body and it can be very very hard to get back to myself at times which has always left me in a state of cutting it off before I go through. I can communicate to others in my presence in details of what I see and read on the other side. It feels real and at times I’m in total control of whats going on. Nearly all of the time it feels dangerous. recently I have decided to explore This side at my own will and the worm hole is very hard to pass through and if I do I get Spat back to myself very Quickly. Just a few weeks ago I was in a Haunted hotel for a night and I said there was a massive energy there before hand and I was very sceptical to stay the night. Sure enough there was 7 entities here and they have followed me since. They have been seen for real and not just by myself. This is real so I meditated with the camera on me filming and sure enough we have caught the energies twice even though faint. I have always had a knowing and been able to see things before they happen.

    Just some thoughts on "Astral Projection Dangers"

    The "Psychological impact" on your life is going to be profound. Although I would not call this a "danger", but enlightenment. Nobody, can really ever be ready to "experience" it for the first time. And the changes that "naturally" occur for the experience are going to be sometimes tough and extreme, because western culture is so diametrically opposed to spiritual awareness. *"Spirit attachment" is possible, however not much more possible than what everyday uncontrolled thoughts and emotions can attract in the physical. Lower vibrational entities are attracted to light, higher frequencies, and you may attract them anyway. *"Obsession." People are obsessed all the time. Drinking, drugs or any other kind of obsession will screw up your life as well. In essence, what you are here, is what you take with you, though even small fears that are more manageable in the physical are exacerbated in effect out of body. This is because thought is instantaneous and immediately affects the experience. So the short guide is: If you can somewhat control your emotions, fears, thoughts and remain calm and controlled in the physical, the better your experiences in the OB state will be.

    So sorry for the delayed response, Farisammy!

    Personally, I would record the event in writing first, and then meditate upon it. I'd also set firm boundaries about how much access you're willing to let them have. Since I'm a visual person, I'd establish a literal shield around myself in my mind's eye and set the intent to keep it up around me as I communicate with the person in question.

    Once you're absolutely sure they're a positive presence, see if they visit you again and ask them what they want. Always, always keep your protections around you, though. They may simply be curious, but when it comes to this type of communication, unless you have a prior relationship with them, I'd regard them with caution until they've earned your trust.

    Hope this helps, and wishing you the best of luck!

    What do you do when someone you meet during astral travel is trying to contact you and you don't know what they want? I recently had this happen, and I'm trying to figure out what to do. I sense this person is confused and frustrated, and seeking knowledge I have...

    Best way to approach a situation like this?

    Do you know what caused your out of body experiences? If they've stopped, and you've had no extremely negative experiences since then, I wouldn't worry much, if I were you.

    It might be a good idea to get a cleansing done in accordance to whatever spiritual beliefs you hold, though. On a spiritual level, the only thing I can think of is a greater potential for some spirit attachment, but that would be taken care of through the cleansing.

    If you haven't already, you'd probably benefit from learning some grounding techniques, too. One of my favorites, is walking over grass or carpet barefoot. I know it sounds very simple, but the feeling of extra texture under my feet brings my consiousness more fully into my body again. It really helps when I'm feeling 'floaty' or out of it.

    I also tend not to go along with the fundamentalist Christian beliefs. Those ideas of everything falling into the paranormal realm as being demonic by default is firmly rooted in fear of the unfamiliar.

    They're free to believe what they want to, but I'd rather not live my life restrained by something like fear. It just makes more sense to me to figure out potential causes of phenomenon and work out how to cope with or control them, depending on what they are.

    I have had out of body experiences from 1986 to 2004. Is there danger in this phenomena? Fundamentalist Christians believe that all unexplained phenomena are satanic deceptions or demonic deceptions to manipulate and deceive people and to lead people away from Jesus Christ and away from the true God. So everything is satanic or demonic whether its out of body experiences, near death experiences, ghosts, hauntings, poltergeists, fairies, UFOs, aliens and alien abductions, spiritualism, theosophy, channeling, divination, ESP, skrying, seances, ouija boards, wicca, levitation, yoga, lucid dreaming.etc. That's very unfortunate because it closes us off to interesting possibilities. So if every unexplained phenomena is satanic or demonic deception and dangerous, then why bother studying it and why bother researching it? And why bother practicing it? The claim that everything is satanic, demonic, deceptive, and dangerous makes me very angry and sad. Is there anything left in the world we can enjoy?
