Not everyone gets vibrations when “separating”. Still, it is very common.
The key to getting to this stage is to stay awake (without daydreaming) while the body goes to sleep. For a beginner, the best way to do this is to listen to an induction guidance of the type you find on Youtube (Paul Santisi for example) so that the talking can keep your mind awake but is focussed on OBE so that you are sticking to your mission. Daydreaming leads to falling asleep and losing your intent (you could still get there but forget what you wanted to do and get nothing better than a dream-type experience with no substance and lose your mental clarity). If you are lucid in the dream you can still catch up though and OBE from within the dream but I don’t recommend it (it can be like a false awakening, you will be there but still think you are no-where and just waste your vibrations).
It is a fine line, you have to trick the body into thinking you are falling asleep. So you need to really fall asleep as per normal (don’t worry, the talking on YT will wake you just before your mind slips if you set an intention of not forgetting what you are doing). The idea is to get sleep paralysis and catch yourself just in time before the mind goes astray. If the induction voice does its job, it will keep your mind from going under with your body.
As soon as the body is paralysed and the mind is still awake, you will get the vibrations, if this is your inclination (like I said it is either seamless OBE or vibrations then OBE).
Remember to stay on your back and to neither move, nor open your eyes. Being in the dark is also required for optimal DMT release.
Being on your back makes for the easiest experience because sitting up, you will be shifting energy to your energy centers (final result being microcosmic orbit(qigong)/kundalini (yoga) if you are in full lotus) but lying down it will have no other option but to go up into the air.
If you do this properly, you will be rewarded with higher clarity of mind than when you are awake. In fact, every sense is sharper in this type of experience, including (inner) sight. Beware, the vibrations cause a high that can distract you, due to the release of DMT in the brain, which causes an ecstatic joy. This can interrupt your experience. If it does, don’t give up, try again immediately (and don’t move!).
I wish you a successful exploration : ) If you don’t get anywhere but are just vibrating, use this deep hypnotic space to program yourself, never waste it as it is precious like elixir. (give yourself whatever suggestions you need to bring about change in your waking life, or healing in the body).
Once you are in the vibration, tell your mind where to go. I don’t advise just “hanging out” to wait and see what happens. Some people have great revelations this way but others have “bad trips”. Once I was lucky, I had no clear intention so my late dad took advantage of that to visit me. That was an exceptionally rewarding experience, what an amazing surprise after ten years of separation. I got the chance to see him in living detail one last time. But who knows what else I may have attracted if not him?
I wish you well.

The Most Powerful Astral Projection Technique
“Welcome back to another video. My name is Aaron, and I help people expand their consciousness. Now in this video what I’m going to be doing is a shorter version of a video that I did months ago. I did a video that was called “My Astral Projection Experience: The Most Effective Technique.” In this video what I wanted to do is to give you the most powerful technique for astral projection in a shorter video that you can apply into your nightly routine to get yourself to an ability to be able to astral project tonight.
“Now just to summarize that whole video, basically I began to look into the idea of astral projection. After a couple times of trying, it happened for me. I had an experience where I left my body. I went over, through the vents in my roof, through over the roof, and then went from the house that I was living it in the time, which I live in Las Vegas. I was able to then see from an aerial point of view all the way to a familiar location that I went to, which is a Whole Foods that was in the middle of the strip of Las Vegas. I went down into that. I hung around for a while. Then eventually I tried moving things. When I started to do that, that’s when I popped back and started to wake back up.
“I went through later that day, went back to that same Whole Foods, and saw very similar things that I saw in that experience. Now you can go to that video to get more detail on it. I go more in depth on it, but that’s just the general idea of it. The effect or the technique that I use is what is called the rope technique. What I want to impact to you today is understanding the power of before you go to bed every single night.
“Now when we go to bed at night, what we are doing is we are shifting from a what is called a beta state, to an alpha state, to a theta state, to a delta state. Now, as we do that, we are having more ability to go deeper within ourselves. If we learn how to stay awake for the process of us going to sleep, what we can then begin to do is actually have an experience, instead of falling asleep, to actually get ourselves to a state of astral projection.
“Now a lot of times there might be an inclination to fall asleep. Now part of this is becoming aware of the whole process of going to sleep. What I want to give you is the process and the technique that you can use to get yourself to stay aware as you fall asleep, and also to tap more into the idea of having that visceral-type experience rather than it being just something that’s so unrelatable.
“Now first off, what I suggest for this whole process is making it an easy way for you to believe that you can actually astral project. I’ve helped a lot of people understand more about astral projection. When it comes to this understanding, some people have a belief that it is something to be afraid of, that the whole idea of astral projection is something that has a little fear-based mentality in it. Begin to see it more so than you getting out of your body. See it more of you going deeper within yourself.
“When you start to view yourself as more of consciousness versus having to think that you are leaving your body and going to some distant place, you start to understand more of what’s really happening. You are going deeper within yourself. You start to realize that who you are is deeper than just this one physical experience. When you have that point of view, it then becomes harder for you to actually experience the negative side effects of it, the negative beliefs about it of it being some scary what if you can’t find your body, and all of these things. Realize that it is easy to astral project. Realize it’s just a matter of shifting the focus. When we start to come at it from this point of view, it starts to get easier for it to actually happen.
“The part of this video that is going to be the technique is understanding the rope technique. It’s one of the most common techniques that people use. To do this, all we simply have to do is lay down in our bed. What we can do is start to bring the awareness into our body. This allows us to start to become more present, take some of the energy out of the head, and then bring it into a more present state.
“What we can then focus on is the visualization process. Now visualization starts to become more powerful when we get to the deeper levels of brain wave activity. Closing our eyes, then we start to automatically go from a beta to an alpha state. Then the power is to visualize ourself pulling ourselves up a rope. Visualize yourself laying down on the bed. What you can begin to do is, over and over again, visualize yourself starting to pull up on this rope. Now you don’t actually have to do the hand motions, but what you can do is close your eye…

welcome back another video my name is Aaron and I help people expand their consciousness now in this video what I’m gonna be doing is a shorter version of a video that I did months ago and I did a video that was called my astral projection experience the most effective technique and in this video what I wanted to do is to give you the most powerful technique for astral projection in a shorter video that you can apply into your nightly routine to get yourself to an ability to be able to astral project tonight now just to summarize that whole video basically I began to look into the idea of

detail on it I go more in depth on it but that’s just the general idea of it but the effect or the technique that I use is what is called the rope technique and what I want to impact to you today is understanding the power of before you go to bed every single night now when we go to bed at night what we are doing is we are shifting from what is called a beta state to an alpha state to a theta

actually have an experience instead of falling asleep to actually get ourselves to a state of astral projection now a lot of times there might be an inclination to fall asleep now the part of this is becoming aware of the whole process of going to sleep and what I want to give you is the process and the technique that you can use to get yourself to stay aware as you fall asleep and also to tap more into the idea of having that visceral type of experience now part of this video that is going to be the technique is understanding the Rope technique and it’s one of the most common techniques that people use and to do this all we simply have to do is lay down in our bed and what we can do is start to bring the awareness into our body this allows us to start to become more present take some of the energy out of the head and then bring it into a more present state but what we can then focus on is the visualization process now visualization starts to become more powerful when we get to the deeper levels of brainwave activity so closing on our eyes then we start to automatically go from a beta to an alpha state then the power is to visualize ourself pulling ourselves up a rope so visualize yourself laying down on the bed and what you can begin to do is over and over again visualize yourself starting to pull up on this rope now you don’t actually have to do the hand motions but what you can do is close your eyes and visualize you sitting up what that would feel like not just the visual image of it visualize the feeling of it make it visceral the more you focus on it the more likely you’ll start to feel it so just stay focused on feeling than sensation of grabbing your hands and grabbing the rope with your hands and moving up and as you do that over and over again you will start to actually start to feel it as if it were actually happening and a lot of times the brain doesn’t know the difference between what it imagines and what is happening and the more you do it the easier it gets so simply start to feel that as if you are pulling up that and one of the next parts of this process is then having the feeling of looking down at yourself as you switch that perspective now some people in this will feel what is like a sensation like a pop in sensation but just realize that if you keep on feeling that sensation of doing the rope without actually moving you can then eventually choose to keep switching the perspective from being in your body on the lane on the bed to then switch the perspective of you actually looking over yourself now what this allows you to do is to begin to switch your focus from that perspective to the other perspective remember that we’re just switching perspectives this doesn’t have to be something that’s unrelatable or so far outside of us live in our body we’re just shifting the perspective as we begin to continue to do that over and over again just simply know that you are going to retain your awareness as you make that transition do it over and over again and as you begin to do that eventually you will have an experience you may have to do this a couple nights in a row and you might find that that you fall asleep a couple times or a couple nights in a row simply have the intention that you will do it that you will remember the process of it you will remember the shift that you make as you do it you will have that awareness and as you continue to get tired and more tired and more tired have the intention of remaining aware of that whole process and the more you do it the easier it gets but this is the most powerful technique that I have found for astral projection it’s one of the most common ones that people use and all you simply have to do is focus on feeling the sensation of pulling up on that rope switching the perspective of then looking down at yourself have the intention every night as you go to bed that you’re going to do it or you don’t have to be going to bed you could be just taking a nap through the middle of the day whatever it is realize the more important realize that the more you try doing it the more you shift the perspective remember to make it a feeling process more than just the idea of an intellectual mentalism type thing and we’ll get easier and easier so with that being said I hope you guys enjoyed this video feel free to like this video if you liked it share it you found it a value and as always I will see you guys the next vid please much love and namaste alright ..
