The Dangers of Astral Projection

Some people have written to me wanting to know about the dangers of astral projection.  Since I have only covered the benefits of learning astral projection I thought it would be fair to discuss some of the risks.

Q.  Can you physically die while astral projecting?

A.  While you are out of your body, your body is as susceptible to death as it normally would be.  Someone could come in to your room and stab or choke you to death or even shoot you.  In fact, if your consciousness was outside your body you may not even hear them come in.  What you are probably wondering, however, is if some entity on the astral plane can attack and kill your astral body, thus causing the death of your physical body, right?

If this has happened to anyone, we would not know since they would not be alive to tell us.  I personally believe it is possible, but highly unlikely that you will die while astral.  I believe there are beings out there powerful enough and strong enough to sever your silver cord while you’re astral, but I think the actual chance of this happening is really small.  Your silver cord is the tether that keeps your astral and physical bodies attached while you’re incarnated.

Now, if someone kills your physical body while you’re astral, you’ll just move on like you normally would if you were inside your body when it died.

Q.  Okay, if the silver cord is our lifeline, how do we protect it and keep it safe?  Are we vulnerable if we go out too far?

A.  The silver cord is such an important and valuable part of your connection to your body and is extremely strong and durable.  It’s not like someone is going to come along and trip over it and break it.  The cord can stretch a really long way and not get tangled, torn, or cut.

But this is why I always caution people about learning astral projection.  It’s all about protection.  Protect your body, your cord, and your astral self.  Use white light, golden light, call upon your guides for protection, keep your vibration really high (avoid fear if you can help it) and ask Jesus, other ascended masters, and the angels, and even God to keep you safe while you travel.  It’s kind of like driving in a bad neighborhood at two in the morning with a sign on your car that says, “I have thousands of dollars in cash on me and I’m a wimp.  You could easily rob me.”  Don’t do it.  If you’re going to travel on the astral plane make sure your travel agent is archangel Michael and that he’s booked you in first class all the way!

Q.  Can a demon possess you while you’re astral?

A.  This was certainly my biggest fear when I began.  Read about my first encounter with astral projection to know what happened to me.  You’re probably imagining that if your consciousness is gone, can’t someone else take up residence in your body when you’re not there?  I don’t think it’s that easy, if it’s even possible.  A demon can only possess you if you let it, if you intend for it, if you’re vibrating so low that you easily vacate your body just for some relief from your life.  Like a vampire, you have to invite it in.  Still, there are entities who can suck your life force and drain you pretty good, so you want to avoid them as much as possible, unless you’re Buffy the Astral Demon Slayer.  Again, make with the white light.  It’s your friend.

Q.  What’s this I hear about sex with demons?  Is this even possible and if so, is it a good idea or a bad idea?

A.  Demons vibrate at a level of consciousness that contains a lot of lust.  Astral sex with other astral beings is possible, and the orgasmic feeling is something you will likely never experience while you’re in your body.  But having a sexual union with an entity of a low vibrational frequency is probably not a good idea since you are feeding it some really vital energy when you consent to that.  When it comes to demons, abstinence is your condom.

Q.  Can you get lost and forget how to get back to your body?

A.  No.  It would be like forgetting where you live when you travel outside the country.  You can be delayed from getting back into your body, however, and you can be propositioned by a demon wanting to have a go at you. I’ve gotten back to my body to find a negative being standing there asking me if I was sure I wanted to go back.  After that I started protecting my entire bedroom while astral traveling.  After I did that, they had to hang out outside my window, hoping I’d throw them some energy like I might throw a bone to a dog.  Clearly that was never going to happen.  You can get sidetracked, you can get delayed, but you will always be able to get back into your body if you want to.  Call upon God or an angel to help you if you run into a demon gang.


Being able to astral project is not a necessary component of living this lifetime, but it is fun and extremely intriguing.  It will help you realize that you are not your body, and that your consciousness lives on after death.  Before you venture into the astral plane, make sure you are protected and vibrating at a high frequency.  Always ask your guides, angels, and God to protect you.  Be safe and have fun out there!
