When I was a child I used to astral project spontaneously?

I would stay up by the ceiling in my room. There was a high window at the top of the wall. I was so tempted to go out it but afraid if I did I would never come back. Can I learn to astral project again? Are there any dangers?

The wonders of childhood, super powers imaginary friends and days filled with wonder. In reality, you are in no danger. No, you can’t astral project it’s not possible.
If I’m wrong and you do indeed learn to astral project again. Please do something useful with it. With all the projectors we hear from here. Why is it none of them help others out? Go to a mine cave in, look fo look lost children. Take a little time out from roaming the universe and be productive.

I use to do that too when I was little. But I had a really bad experience with demons when I was about eight that really scared me. When I got older I started to research it. This is some of what I know.
*One of the most common forms of astral projection is through lucid dreaming. It happens when you are dreaming, but you are fully aware of what is going on around you. This can happen without even trying.
*For projection to work properly, the body must be fully relaxed. One of the best ways to do this is through meditation. This prepares you for projection because e your spirit gets bored and wants to move around and do something else.
*The body needs to be asleep, while the mind is still awake. This can happen by repeating the meditation over and over again, and by relaxing each part of the body one at a time.
*Once you have reached the altered conscious state you are ready to project. This can happen differently for each person.. Some “look for the light” while others keep focus on their meditation. However it happens for you, the important thing is to not think about it too much. This will cause a break in the projecting, sending you back to your body.
*Going back to your body can be a painful experience if it happens too suddenly, so it is important to focus on going back slowly.
There are some dangerous. A lot of times you can enter realms of evil and demons if you don’t project yourself far enough.
Good luck!!

I believe meditation is the best way to get back into astral projecting. There are no chances for physical harm. The most dangerous and unsafest way is to use psycadelic drugs to enhance relaxation, or to inspire projecting, but I do not advise that at all.
& Here I’ve looked up some sites with techniques to better help you along your way to rediscovering your gift.
Good luck!


Children have very active imaginations. Your case of astral projection was more likely just a dream or your imagination. Some memories, even ones where you are imagining things, can become concrete in your mind and make you swear that an event actually happened.

Yes you can learn to do it again. I have astral projected a large number of times and I was always able to get back to my body. Supposedly, there is an etheric cord that connects your soul to your body and so you are never fully separated from it. Here is some information on it:
As far as dangers…I have only had problems with negativity during sleep paralysis. When I have projected though, sometimes I might feel really tired or heavy but there is nothing dangerous around me. Sometimes I feel really light and free. Both these examples I think are within the physical realm. I think the physical realm has different levels, maybe the ones closest to the physical ground are heaviest. I don’t think negative entities are there because it’s not the realm that they exist in. I am not sure on that though.
But to insure that you have no problems, just make sure your room is clean and your bedding is clean. Make sure that there isn’t anything under the bed and if you store stuff there, make sure that it is organized and not just cluttered. Keeping an amethyst by your bed (or wearing one) will also provide you with gentle spiritual protection and also help you to project.
Here is an article on the dangers of astral projection:
Use your own discretion on the information I gave you. Not everyone’s experiences are the same and some people have more built in protection than others do…sometimes because of past life experience and maybe sometimes because of how spiritual they are in this lifetime.

Early childhood is when the brain is developing at it’s fastest rate. This is thought to be the reason why children have very vivid and wild imaginations.
I would say you have just out grown this fantasy, just like most children outgrow an imaginary friend.
If it were a true gift then why would you not still be able to achieve an astral projection?


Check out this Astral Projection foum.
You can learn techniques and post questions and receive answers from people that actually do it.


Technically you were Ethereally projecting. Alstral Projecting is when you travel into an alternate/spirit plane. Its fairly easy to learn to do, most psychic education programs teach projection in the 3rd or 4th class you would take (Meditation II in most standard programs). To be able to control stuff like this you need to learn to meditate. The below link lists some well known schools. The best one is Berkeley Psychic Institute, but they are kind of stuck up in not recognizing other schools as legit.
I dispute the above posters claims that it is not dangerous. Leaving your body leaves you open to spirits entering your body. Most outbursts of irrational behavior are caused by spirits exercising influence over you. Staying in your body helps you stay in control.

If you are all grown up now, the only danger is to your credibility.
About time you started thinking critically about things.


haha i belive you girl i do it to without even trying sometimes it is scary though

Yes, anyone can learn how to do it, you’ll need to discipline yourself.
Danger is rare unless you go out looking for it. It’s like in everyday life…. some places you should avoid.
