I have been finding more and more in my research that lucid dreaming is a good place to start for astral projection. I found one website called http://www.lucidity.com which suggestions things to try once you have gotten to the point where you are realizing you are dreaming.
Such things like asking yourself or identities in the dream certain questions. The questions could be something related to something you want to know about the future or a current endeavor. Really it seems that it could be anything.
I have been wanting to get deeper into astral projection as I understand it to be the doorway to many other great things, but I had not thought that lucid dreaming could be a doorway to THAT doorway. I have been lucid dreaming for many many years now so it seems that this might be a better chance for me to break into astral projection rather than trying to cold start into it.
I will be sharing my experiments and experiences and hopefully others can share their advice and experience as well. And, of course, questions are more than welcome.
