‘The Projection of the Astral Body’ by S. Muldoon was one of the earliest books on astral projection techniques. These techniques were based on the idea that each night during sleep we undergo a subconsciously controlled ‘projection’, causing the sensation of an out of body experience (OOBE).
Clearly, the most effective method of inducing astral projection was to ‘stress’ what is called the passive will — or the subconscious mind. Deep relaxation and the use of imagery as you are falling asleep — such as an elevator or rocket slowly lifting — are effective in achieving astral projection and an altered state of consciousness.

No…but my husband used to do it by accident . He was very excited that it happened. But, the second or third time he did it..he saw an old lady come out of our closet. That really scared him and he wouldn’t let it happen again. (We didn’t think any more about that lady being in our house. I wonder if that house was haunted. We got it for a really good price. My son was always scared in his room. ..but the closet was in our bedroom.)
