In lucid dreaming:
You are asleep Your experience is a dream Your location is whereever you wish it to be (desert, ocean, future, past, mom’s house, etc.) Your consciousness is still inside your body You can control the environment and characters When the experience is over, you simply wake up
In astral projection:
You awaken, then you project Your experience is real Your experience begins in your bedroom, or wherever your body is Your consciousness is outside of your body, and your body is left with none You can manipulate your environment in the astral realm (somewhat), but you cannot control the actions of the inhabitants of the astral plane. When the experience is over, you return to your body and merge your consciousness back into it
I used to, but now I am busy doin TF works.
@vazz – Have you ever experienced Astral Projection? Just asking this out of curiosity. I practicing this now.
Very eager to know anyone else having experience in this Astral Projection?

I have, without my will. Although it is an extraordinary feeling, I do not want to have it because I suffer of sleep paralysys and my mind is trying hard to shut the door to similar experiences. This is why I believe our spirit should be very prepared when trying new mind experiences.
I had a discussion about something like this recently with a friend of mine who’s a yoga teacher. She’s opening her own yoga studio and was a bit worried about the possible distracting noises of the environment. But then she noted “Then again, when I go to India to study, there’s all kinds of noises around us all the time. You’ll just have to learn how to focus amidst all of that.”
I think meditation is a life skill. When you need to be mindful or center yourself, you can’t just ask the environment to stop and give you peace so you can do that. You make your own peace! It’s a journey within, and it’s actually really nice to notice that you can find so much there that you’ve possibly been seeking from outside sources. It’s all there, including serenity and peace. You’ll just have to tap into it.So my humble opinion is that it would be very useful to learn how to meditate regardless of the surroundings.
Thank you for your advice
I tried TM when i was at Uni, and read a lot about astral projection.
