Is astral traveling considered wicca?

I’m christian, and i was experementing with astral traveling. When I had done some research on asral traveling, and it concluded results for wicca on google. However, im against wiccas, and i’m afraid i’ve made a mistake towards my religeon. Any answers from an experienced christian would help my situation. Thank you.

  1. It’s not specifically Wicca. The term is connected to New Age beliefs but the meaning could be connected to really any religious epiphany.

  2. how is this scary…..
    Wicca is a natural religion, grounded in the earth. All living things (including stars, planets, humans, animals, plants, rocks) are regarded as having a spirit. Many Wiccan rituals deal with bringing harmony and healing to nature. Wiccans tend to share a great concern for the environment
    Three-fold Law (a.k.a. the Law of Return) The law states that:
    “All good that a person does to another returns three fold in this life; harm is also returned three fold.”
    This belief strongly motivates each Wiccan to avoid attempting to dominate, manipulate, control, or harm another person.

  3. I’m not too sure if an experienced Christian would be able to help you, unless they also have an open mind. Astral traveling is considered a new age practice, and isn’t strictly limited to witchcraft or Wicca. Typically astral traveling is a more harder practice to confidently perform, but it can be done with practice.

  4. Wow, Jordan……what was it like, were you scared? Never happened to me personally but a friend in high school experienced that quite often. Most Christians would believe its happened but would consider it by Satanic influence. I am not comfortable in speaking for everyone this is just what a group of Christians have told me. Personally I’m on the fence but believe anything is possible. (and I am not implying you are satanic AT ALL)

  5. One, you didn’t do anything wrong. You had a question and you found an answer to it. Though you might want to Wikipedia it to double check.
    Two, Wiccans have no direct correlation with your life. You have no reason to be against them just because they don’t follow what you do. You should be ashamed of yourself for being intolerant based on a stereotypical bias. How would you like it if someone did that to you, it wouldn’t feel very good would it?
    I suggest you take some time to re-examine your feelings and start showing some more kindness to others that are different from you.

  6. “and it concluded results for wicca on google.”
    I’m calling ‘Büllshït’ on that one.
    “Is astral travelling considered wicca?”
    Astral Travelling is not ‘owned’ by any institution-belief system.
    “However, im against wiccas”
    Well; you’re a xian; what did we expect?
    Of course you are against anything outside your blinkered understanding.

  7. relax and don’t worry
    OBEs are as natural as sleeping or dreaming.
    Most people astral project and either don’t remember it or are unaware they are doing it.
    It is way more common than imagined.
    It is almost a guarantee any dream involving falling or flying or even driving a vehicle are the mind’s way of rationalizing an OBE.
    Some people naturally astral project with little effort.
    There is nothing witchy about it.
    If people on wicca websites claim ownership of astral projection, they are fooling themselves.
    peace
    and
    God bless

  8. Astral traveling is not owned by any religion, although many Wiccans in particular tend to try it, and that’s why google kept bringing you to Wicca. As far as I know, there is nothing that the Christian faith has to say about Astral projection, negative or positive. If you’re really worried about it, talk to your pastor. I’m sure he can tell you whether it’s a sin. From what I’ve heard, confessing your sins can’t get you in trouble unless you do something really horrible, and there’s no way that astral projection is something that is that horrible even if it does turn out to be sinful.
    Furthermore, I really don’t think it’s fair of you to judge Wiccans without even learning anything about us. We can give you advice just as well as any Christian can, and just because we believe in different gods, doesn’t make us evil. Are Hindus evil? Are Jews evil? We all follow different religions, but none of us are bad people. We disagree on religion, but we shouldn’t be “against” one another. Didn’t Jesus tell you not to judge other people but to leave it to your God to judge them? Anyway, I wish you much peace and happiness on your path.

  9. No. Wicca is a religion. Astral traveling is a practice. Yes, many Wiccans are interested in it (and many aren’t), but so are many non-Wiccans.
    This question would be like asking if cooking is considered Wicca. Lots of Wiccans do it, but that doesn’t mean one is actually part of the other.

  10. Astral Travel isn’t Wiccan.
    Some Wiccans practice Astral Travel, but so do lots of people from other religions.
    So why are you against Wiccans? What have they ever done to you?

  11. I agree with pretty much all the answers here. No offense to you or your religion but if christianity finds something wrong with astral projection, than there is something very wrong with the religion itself & not with astral projection or the people that practice it. AP is a natural thing we can all do. It is your right to develop those skills. Anyone can do it if they learn how. There is nothing satanic or evil about it. We all have unconscious projections every time we sleep. AP is a skill that can turn these into conscious projections. There is nothing wrong with that at all. People have been practicing AP for thousands of years. Anyone who regards it as satanic or whatever is uneducated & has been mislead.
    There is nothing wrong with wiccans either. They are good intelligent people. They are generally misunderstood & people judge them without knowing anything about them. There is nothing wrong with practicing witchcraft. It is not evil. Anyone that disagrees is an uneducated fool. Hating on people because they practice things you don’t understand is just stupid. (I borrowed one book on witchcraft from the library recently & the old woman there gave me a dirty look like as if I was up to no good casting evil spells on everyone)
    As others have said wicca is a religion & AP is a practice. Some wiccans practice AP but so do many other countless people of different beliefs & religions.

  12. If astral travel was against the God, all the saints who have had visions (of Virgin Mary or Jesus) would be in deep, deep trouble 🙂 And what about the Revelation?
    You cannot have a revelation in a “normal” state of mind, it is necessary to enter a specific state to start see things clearly. Maybe that’s not exactly astral projection but still pretty close. So, don’t worry. If you don’t harm anyone by this practice and if you use it to broaden your horizon, there’s nothing wrong with that, whatever the religion.
    I am a Wiccan myself but I got friends practising other religions. Many of them have had astral projections. I think it is one of the many gifts God gives us – to explore ourselves and to explore the world.
