No matter what drives your desire to astral project, research into the matter will often connect with the principle of Kundalini yoga. Yogic practices have, since ancient times, been tied to astral projection. Through meditation, breathing, and other components of yoga, there is the possibility of awakening the spiritual body so it can travel the astral plane.
What is Kundalini?
In its simplest terms, Kundalini is a sacred energy that resides within the deepest parts of the subconscious. This energy, which is connected to the root chakra, is tied to all other energies in the body and can be awakened through meditative practice.
Similar to astral projection, the process of awakening the Kundalini is an intense and powerful one. As it awakens, the energy will uncoil and begin to rise through the body from its location at the spine’s base. Rising up, the Kundalini will pass through and activate all chakras, starting with the root chakra, where it resides. This process will allow an intense surge of energy to pass through the body, causing similar physical reactions as that which occurs during the rising up of the astral body.
Risks and Benefits of Kundalini Yoga
As with any intense experience, there can be some risk. In spite of the common belief that it is possible for the subtle body to become trapped along the astral plane, this is not possible. The practice itself poses no danger to either the physical body or the spiritual one.
The benefits of Kundalini can vary from person to person and within each session. Depending largely on your goals, repeated practice can allow you to achieve a heightened level of spirituality, better harmony within the chakras, and a multitude of other benefits. The key to success in awakening the Kundalini and astral travel is to be patient with the practice as you work towards achieving your goals.
