  1. Astral Projection yes, meditation no.
    Some will argue that meditation is against christianity but within Catholicism they do the rosary, it is quite meditative actually. If you can get by without astral projecting than go for it!

  2. Hey, am christian and i think that too often we forget these aspects of christianity. I believe in these things but modern day xtians shun them because they are too carnal minded. I believe that God has called us to live in the Spirit in every way and this includes developing our spiritual capabilities to its fullest potential….God can do these things and He wants us to be like Him, so I think we ought to spend less time focusing on the worldliness around us and get into these things. If we perfect these things then we cannot be affected by the world’s sinfulness.

  3. Who cares? Seriously. You don’t need “approval” from christians who have their own serious issues to contend with. The blind leading the blind…
    Break free from religion period. Take the religious chains and bars off of your Spirit…

  4. A voluntary out-of-body experience, or an “astral projection,” is a different story. A person trying to achieve an out-of-body experience in order to connect with spirits or the spirit world is practicing the occult. There are two forms of this.
    The first is called the “phasing” model, in which the person tries to find new spiritual truth by accessing a part of the mind that is “shut off” during everyday life. This practice is connected to Buddhism or postmodernism and the belief that enlightenment is achieved from looking within oneself.
    The other form, called the “mystical” model, is when the person tries to exit the body entirely, their spirit traveling to another plane that is not connected to the physical world at all.
    The Bible explicitly warns against occult practice, or sorcery, in Galatians 5:19-20, saying that those who practice it will not inherit God’s kingdom. God’s commands are always for our good, and He commands us to stay far away from occult practices because there is great potential, when trying to access the spiritual world, of opening oneself up to demons who can tell us lies about God and confuse our minds. In Job 4:12-21, Eliphaz describes being visited by a lying spirit in a vision that tells him God does not regard humans and that He doesn’t care for us, which is false!
    The phasing model is also futile, according to Scripture. Jeremiah 17:9 says “the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately sick; who can understand it?” and 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 says “When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling. My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power.” It is futile to search for infinite wisdom inside the finite mind of man.
    One concrete example of this comes from the popular book “90 Minutes in Heaven” by Pastor Don Piper. Piper describes what is, in essence, an out-of-body experience he had after a severe car accident during which he believes he died and went to heaven for 90 minutes. Whether or not Piper did actually see heaven or spend time there is debatable, and in the end nobody but God knows. However, there is a serious problem, theologically speaking, with the conclusion Pastor Piper draws from his experience.
    He tells the reader that now that he has “been to Heaven” he can speak comfort to grieving people at funerals “with more authority” than he could previously. Piper’s motives are correct: he wants to give people hope. However, it is dead wrong to say that his own subjective experience will give him more authority to administer the hope of heaven than the perfect truth of Scripture would do.
    In conclusion, whatever sort of out-of-body experience we are talking about, the main point to remember is that an out-of-body experience will give us neither truth nor knowledge. If an involuntary out-of-body experience occurs in the life of a Christian, the best approach would be to consider it in the same category as a dream–interesting, perhaps, but not a source of truth. Christians are to find truth only in the words of God, as Jesus prays in John 17:17, “Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.”

  5. yes. God says it is a sin.
    why …
    in meditation, the mind allows satan in bc it isn’t focused on God or on His Laws.
    astral projection is what sorcerers do …
    meditation, astral projection are part of satanism.

  6. No, Christians aren’t against meditation OR astral projection. I am a Catholic and I practice both astral projection and meditation. Many Christians believe different things and Christians don’t really talk about astral projection that much so many Christians just automatically assume astral projection is a sin. It’s actually not a sin and brings you closer to God. Many Christians call Astral Projection “occult” but know nothing about it and aren’t aware it has existed since the beginning of time and people are now actually discovering it.
    Many naive people actually think you soul leaves your body. It doesn’t. Your consciousness/astral body goes to the astral plane. Many Christians also associate astral projection with Satanists. This is very incorrect because the Devil’s work is pure evil and is not for helping other people. With astral projection you can help other people and yourself! It is a true spiritual path that brings you really close to God.
    With the combination of the Holy Rosary, Mass, Prayers, and Astral Projection you can become a better Christian.
    I also know 2 Christian Authors and Researchers on Astral Projection.
    David A Warner is a Methodist and has had OBEs/Astral Projection for more than 25 years and it has strengthened his faith. David A Warner states that he was a selfish human being before his out-of-body experiences. Now he is an AIDS activist and astral projection has changed his life. He has many experiments and has helped in understanding the out-of-body experience. Check out his website at Invisiblelight.us
    Marilynn Hughes is a Catholic and has also had OBEs/Astral Projection for more than 20 years. She started the out of body travel foundation. OBEs have also strengthened her relationship with God. She’s a dedicated Catholic and also believes Out-of-body experiences are good in nature.

    Good Luck
    Edit: @Tom
    Actually Catholics are the type of Christians that can really astral project and catholics aren’t against astral projection. Many Christian sects like Baptists and others might have strict rules against the occult. The truth is astral projection really isn’t an occult practice.

  7. I believe Christ meditated, so I’ve never understood the problems with meditation. If you start it by dedicating yourself and the meditation to God, and focus your mind on that.
    But astral projection no.

  8. Definitely not astral projection. That is going to the lowest possible level of spirit connection and the information is suspect at best.
    Meditation is a wonderful way to clear the mind and help open it to many levels of understanding. The consciousness is brought to peace and allows for understanding from a spirit level.

  9. EvangelistPaul raised some interesting verses, I thought I’d look them up to see if they hold any water.
    Galatians 5:19-20: though this appears to be condemning sorcery/witchcraft, if you go back to the original greek, what’s actually being condemned is ‘pharmakia’ – drug use.
    Job 4:12-21: this form of experience is firmly in the sleep paralysis / lower etheric projection overlap. You should certainly be deeply dubious of any message received from a lower etheric wavelength, but note that astral and etheric are entirely separate realms. There’s far more good and indeed Holy information in the astral. Just remember to test it against scriptural messages as well as gut feel before believing it.
    Jeremiah 17:9, Corinthians 2:1-5 : these don’t seem relevant to phasing. Phasing is essentially just a projection method that doesn’t involve a body exit phase. What is experienced is no more internal than in a classical projection.
    Projection isn’t ruled out by most forms of Christianity. Catholicism is stricter however, because it inserts an intermediary communications layer between God and man – the priesthood (confession is to a priest for example, not direct). In a nutshell, Catholic priests are allowed to project, but the congregation aren’t.
