Is Astral Projection Compatible With Christian Beliefs?
Whether or not Astral Projection is appropriate for the practicing Christian is a question that many people
have asked themselves.
Why there should be a resistance to Astral Projection within parts of the Christian community, I can only
speculate. Out of Body Experiences certainly happened to quite a few of the main players in the Bible; and it
is also true to say that, as a generalisation, most people who have experimented with Astral Projection have found
that it reinforced their religious convictions. Regardless of whether Christian, Hindu, Muslim or Buddhist,
time and time again, I have heard descriptions of Out of Body Experiences full of religious imagery.
Dreams are mentioned countless times in the Bible, as a way of God communicating with his followers. The
visions and prophesies that come to God's chosen servants very often take the unmistakable form of the Lucid
My feeling is that the cause of some Christian's antipathy towards Astral Projection is based more upon the fact
that a lot of the information available on the subject is found in the more New Age or Occult websites and
bookstores. This has lead to an unfortunate association with Ouija boards, Tarot cards and other
subjects with nothing really in common with the Out of Body Experience.
There are many Christian Astral Projectors out there, who find such things as Ouija boards extremely
distasteful, but think nothing of Lucid Dreaming and Astral Projection. For these people, Astral Travel is a
way of strengthening and rejoicing in their spirituality.
While there are those who claim that they use Astral Projection for clairvoyant purposes, which understandably
can make the subject contentious for the Christian, this is not really an aspect of OBEs that is of great
interest to most Astral travellers.
The greatest part of the whole experience is that of travelling and exploring the spaces that become
available for you when you master Astral Projection, and a great many Christians have found a new dimension that
does in no way replace their faith, but rather complement it.
I would really hope that anyone reading this, wondering whether practicing Astral Projection can be
compatible with Christianity, will try to dispel any concerns about any perceived connection with the
Occult. Thousands of committed Christians have found in Astral Projection an extra dimension to their
spirituality, that in no way contradicts any religious teachings.
Furthermore, it is true to say that, more times than not, it is those who already have that spiritual
aspect to their life who find the process of mastering Astral Projection that much easier.
I would certainly hate for anyone to miss out on the marvellous experiences, and self-realisation that comes
with them, for the sake of following too closely a dogma preached by people who have clearly never
actually experienced Astral Projection.
