As I have mentioned in many previous posts Astral Projection is the technique of the spirit leaving the body and travelling any distance. It commonly happens accidentally in dreams to everyone and is a part of life however there are many ways to induce this practice and many studies reveal it can even take us back in time. This is called Astral Time Travel..
Astral Time Travel Theory..
(How astral time travel works is by theory, some may refer to it as past regression memories or self hypnosis techniques. I will leave that up to you to decide.. However try to be open minded to the possibilities of thought, the consciousness, the spirit and to the wonders of what is beyond the body.. )
How Astral Time Travel works is like focusing a memory. It is a practice that should be done very carefully. By the theory time is like stream, it flows down but memory with the aid of astral projection can go back to certain times in that stream and look at a memory. In a way it is like watching your past self. It can help overcome past traumas, remember blocked out memories and move on in some cases. Whether you can contact yourself back then and give yourself information that i am unsure and most describe it like a viewing, not as a way of changing the past. When you think about it, if one could change the past it could have some major repercussions.. Be careful..

Astral Projection and Time Travel Practices – To Begin
Surround yourself with all elements of that time, photos, videos, smells, photos of yourself and lastly as many notes or information you might of made. Try to rehash over the memory that you remember many times and as a great aid write it down.
Hand Method in Sleep
Now comes the tricky part, convincing the spirit where to go. There are a couple of methods you could use. Some of which are not good and some quite dangerous to induce a projection. The one I would recommend again of choice is the hand method, while for some it may work better than others, basically you tell yourself before sleep “When I am a sleep I will look at my hands in my dream (this induces a lucid / astral dream – Click here for more info) and then my spirit will go to that time or memory..” This will instruct the conscious mind before projection to move the spirit to that time. This technique might have to be done many times before even a minor experience occurs. It takes time, so be patient.
Light Deprivation Method
That above technique of astral projection is the safest form of travelling, the second technique is light deprivation. It only takes about 48 hours for the mind to start letting go if deprived. This can if kept focused result in a powerful projection, however the will to come back is greatly compromised so I do not recommend. If it has to be done this way then have a friend watching.
Another technique is fasting for a few days and meditation. After a few days the mind will be a lot lighter and more focused. This will allow deeper visuals and greater chance of a projection. If you are good at meditation, then you may be able to do this without fasting which will be a very safe and secure method. Try and focus on the memory before entering trance and will the spirit to enter that time.
The last technique is hypnotism, basically we all know what this is, it allows us to go to previous memories and analyse them. If used right it can even allow us to be back in that visual time and if instructed astrally. Please note, some people are affected by hypnotism more than others. With this technique I am not implying that all hypnotism is astral, most of time it is just the mind viewing a past memory. However that is not to say astral is not uncommon in hypnotism, it is what the hypnotist instructs of the patients consciousness..
Astral Time Travel is not a game. Be Careful.
Be careful with these above techniques, the mind and spirit are very powerful and induced astral projection is not a game. It is okay on one side for it to happen by accident, but on another be prepared if trying and focus this to a end result.. This is why meditation is so important, it can help to answer your desires to begin with. That way you can be sure..
I advise for a newbie to do with a friend watching, as past times can be overwhelming for the user and on rare occasions some people may have trouble getting back. Try to advise the user a safe word for the coming back of the spirit. This can be done by instructing the user an agreed word before trying to induce the experience.
“When I am a sleep I will look at my hands in my dream (this induces a lucid / astral dream – Click here for more info) and then my spirit will go to that time or memory..”
Overall with using any astral techniques for time travel, try to consider why you do wish to go back to that time or memory? Remember who you are now is what was made by past events. And lastly sometimes by chasing the past can only further confuse the future and yourself.
