Astral travel occurs when your conscious awareness journeys beyond the physical realm of being. This experience usually happens during sleep (unconsciously) or meditation time (consciously, aka astral projection).
During astral travel or astral projection, your energetic focus and consciousness moves into an otherworldly dimension. In essence, you take an energetic journey as your conscious awareness travels into the dimensional realms of being beyond your current state of incarnation.
There are a vast spectrum and range of energetic frequencies and experiences beyond the earthly realm. This includes dense shadow realms of being. Not all realms of being are of love and light. The energies encountered within denser dimensional realms will not have your best interest in mind. For this reason, tools of energetic protection are key to safely traveling within other dimensions.
Armed with some basic tools of energetic protection, you can rest easy and journey safely into the non-physical realms of being.
First and foremost, it is vital that you are grounded before meditation time and before you fall asleep at night. It is particularly helpful to call in protective spirit guides, such as bear or archangel Michael. Ask them to watch over you and keep you safe as you meditate or sleep. Additionally, clearly set your intention as not to travel to any of the lower realms of density. It is also helpful to surround yourself in an energetic bubble of safety. Work with stones of protection such as hematite or smoky quartz.
Hold the stones as you meditate or tuck them into your pillowcase before sleep. Hematite is a powerfully protective stone. It is extremely grounding and acts as an anchor, holding and tethering you to Gaia. Therefore, hematite provides perfect protection during astral travel. Smoky Quartz facilitates energetic grounding and protection. Smoky Quartz creates a gateway into the higher realms while simultaneously grounding you into Gaia’s protective energy. This makes smoky quartz a particularly powerful protection ally while astral traveling.
With some basic tools of support, you can travel other worldly realms safely and with confidence.
