My Experiments with Astral Projection Mantras

lucia
Experience Submitted by Lucia Beznik

I first learned about mantras for astral projection on Belsebuub’s Astral course years ago. It was my first encounter with mantras of any kind and I still remember how magical it felt to listen to them for the first time on the MP3 recordings we were given. The mantras sounded very powerful and I was very inspired to put them to practice. It was recommended to dedicate at least a few days to one mantra in order to get used to it and investigate how it works. We were given several mantras for astral projection, and I gradually got to try them all.

Verifying the Effectiveness of the Mantras

The first mantra I managed to astral project with was the mantra LaRaS. I liked the extended ssssssss at the end, and found out that it worked very well for me. Later on, I managed to astral project also with the mantras FaRaOn and Egypto. What I really liked when projecting with these mantras was that I was able to witness how they gradually helped my astral body to detach from my physical one. I would usually feel my hands and arms moving first, then my legs and other body parts, with the torso usually being the last. At some attempts, I would try moving immediately when feeling the first body parts moving, but that didn’t work and I would find myself being stuck, unable to move further. This taught me to relax and just patiently keep pronounce the mantras mentally, until all my body parts had separated completely.

Another advantage I found when using these mantras for astral projection was that I was often able to say when I switched to the astral dimension simply because I would suddenly hear myself vocalizing the mantra. I would start pronouncing the mantra mentally in the physical dimension, and as I gradually started falling asleep, I would at some point begin hearing my voice. This could go on and off during one practice, with the periods of not hearing my voice as I was getting closer to the physical dimension, and then again starting to hear my voice as I was transitioning more to the astral again.

Exploring the Effects of the Mantras on My Astral Body

However, it was only relatively recently that I managed to get more understanding about how these mantras worked based on the vibrations they produced in my body.

FARAON

For a couple of days, I decided to focus on the mantra FaRaOn in my astral practices. I would vocalize it at some point during the day as a training, and then before going to sleep at night. I would also try to project with it any time I spontaneously woke up during the night. Then one early morning I woke up and decided to take advantage of the relaxed and sleepy state I was in and started pronouncing the mantra FaRaOn mentally again.

It didn’t take long before I started hearing my voice in the astral plane. This time, however, I could also feel how each vowel caused a different vibration in my astral body. When pronouncing the elongated Faaaaaa, for example, my body would vibrate differently than when vocalizing Rrrrraaaaa, and then again differently when pronouncing the last sylable Oooooon.

I really liked to observe these newly discovered effects, and kept vocalizing the different syllables of this mantra for a while to investigate how it worked. It seemed that the vibrations were strongest when I did this mantra at a bit lower tone, and I also noticed that as soon as I stopped pronouncing a syllable, the vibrations stopped and the separation of my astral body also got a bit stuck. That’s how I found out that unlike when pronouncing a mantra out loud in the physical dimension, where there is need to take a breath before another syllable, when doing it mentally it seems best to not make these breaks as they unnecessarily break the flow of the sound and vibration of the mantra in the astral plane.

Eventually, my body separated completely and I went to explore the astral plane a bit, seeing some symbolic sceneries. After some time, I felt myself coming back to my physical body and so started vocalizing the mantra again. This time I applied what I learned before, using a slightly lower tone of my voice, not doing the breaks, and very quickly I found myself back in the astral plane, ready to explore it once again.

After a few days, inspired by these findings, I wanted to investigate how a mantra with different syllables worked. So I decided to try to project with the mantra Egypto this time. And just as with the FaRaOn mantra, I could witness the different vibrations the syllables Eeeeee, gyyyyyp and tooooo produced in my astral body while pronouncing them mentally on the verge of falling asleep.

They were different than with FaRaOn, and also the tone didn’t need to be as low as in FaRaOn, but similarly to the first mantra, it worked best when vocalized without breaks so that the sound and vibrations were uninterrupted. This time I was so engrossed in studying the mantra that I kept vocalizing it even after the full separation of the two bodies took place and I was flying in the astral landscape. 🙂

RUSTI

Another interesting mantra that I got to successfully try for astral projection was the mantra Rusti. This mantra was given on one of Belsebuub’s later courses, and was suggested as a good mantra to get to a certain spiritual location in the astral plane. I didn’t expect much success with this mantra, as it was quite new for me and I thought maybe a longer familiarization with it would be needed. Surprisingly though, I found it working very quickly and effectively, and after some time of concentrated vocalization I found myself fully separated in the astral plane.

Similarly to the mantra FaRaOn, it had a slightly trilled R on the beginning, and had therefore the same powerful effect, which to me felt like an engine starting. 😀 But the most interesting thing about this mantra was the “swinging” feeling. When pronouncing this mantra mentally in order to astral project, I felt like when people do the rhythmic “yo-heave-ho” chant (or “hey-rup!” in my native language), in order to lift or pull something heavy. So it literally felt like swinging my astral body to pull it out of its heavy physical shell.

In Conclusion

These experiences with the mantras I learned from Belsebuub’s work confirmed to me the powerful effects of sound on our bodies. I was able to see how they can temporarily change our vibrations, and how different vowels, syllables or tones of the voice varied in their effect. That made me think more about the hidden power and spiritual meaning of different sounds, words or melodies, and how much more there is still to explore…

  • thank u all guys bcoz I have an experience of this mantra while im listening to this mantra egypto when im going about to sleep I heard this mantra and there is some vibration to pull me out everytime the mantra goes in my ears while my body already in sleep and suddenly i hit the floor I dont know if that out of body or only a dream and I saw my arms with the different color it’s like rainbow color and it’s awsome I will continue to practice this technique thank you all please give me some advice thanks

    • It’s good to hear you’ve been having some interesting results with the mantra Hermes. It sounds like you could be close to astral projection, so it seems worth continuing with your practices. Good luck with gaining new experiences! 🙂

    • It sounds like you are on the right track Hermes, I would say just keep doing what you are doing if it works for you! It can be sometimes tricky (for me at least), when some small successes start happening, then there is a feeling of being a bit satisfied and stop practicing with the same level of intensity. But if you keep going and don’t stop, I am sure we can soon hear about more experiences from you. 🙂

    • Hi Hermes

      From my experience, there are two factors that work using mantras for astral projection. One is the concentrated mind and the other the vibration from the sound of the mantra.
      In case you listen an audio you can achieve to have concentrated mind on one thing you will choose but the vibration will flow around you and not inside you so much. You could say it mentally in that case but then I don’t know how the mind will stay concentrated then and on which of the two sounds.

      It’s worth trying of course and experiment what works for you better.
      Good luck!

    • Hi Hermes,

      Yes, you just need to be concentrated at the point of sleep, in order to astral project, so there is quite a lot of flexibility. When using mantras for astral projection, people often start by saying the mantra out loud, but then gradually get softer and softer until they just think it. Many people find specific mantras for astral projection helpful, but if you prefer to listen to something in a concentrated way, that could also work. For example, you could find a nice recording of a suitable mantra and have that playing at a low volume while going to sleep.

      For a while, I used to regularly concentrate on relaxing music when I went to bed and found it to be quite a nice practice to do. I find it’s a different experience listening to something in a concentrated way, rather than just hearing it as background music. Listening to white noise, such as the sound of rain, or water flowing could also be a nice practice. There are various recordings around, which you could use.

      I think the trick is to find something that can sustain your interest, without it being distracting. For example, although I like quite a lot of classical music, I’ve found some pieces much more suitable for relaxation, such as Chopin, Debussy or Satie’s piano pieces, as they usually don’t have big jumps from quiet to loud. I also enjoy listening to ambient music for relaxation and have also tried listening to some ambient pieces while going to sleep, as an astral projection exercise.

      Currently one of my favourite practices is concentration on the heart, as it is so simple. I used to have a lot of difficult perceiving my heart beats, which made it a weak concentration exercise for me. But I now find it easier and much more enjoyable. I find it a nice practice, when I want to have a quiet mind and not even mentally repeat a mantra. It doesn’t require any preparation or equipment, so for example, sometimes if I’m waiting for an appointment, I shut my eyes and start concentrating on my heart beats, which puts me in a more relaxed state.

      There are lots of astral exercises to choose from and you’ll probably find some favourites after trying a few different things. Good luck with your practices!

    • Hi Hermes,
      Fotis made a good point about how by vocalizing the mantras yourself, you gain their benefits of their vibrations to their full effect as you are the one vocalizing and producing the sound, as opposed to simply listening.
      Personally with mantras, I prefer to use my own voice for astral projection (than a recording) as that means in the long run I’m not dependent on something external, I know then I can do it on my own terms and I don’t have to worry about the sound of mantras on a record stopping, being too loud / not loud enough and ‘whathaveyous’.
      Saying that, I’ve also projected by simply concentrating with the sound of nothing, aka ‘silence’ 🙂
      So like Michael and Fotis talked about, it’s really about finding something to concentrate upon at the time of sleep, and there are many possibilities to do that, mantras being one way, so try and see what works for you best.

  • Those are really nice experiences Lucia! I also found the same with mantras, once I start chanting internally, I usually do it without breaks in-between. I noticed as well, that as I tend to do it faster sometimes, the process speeds up a bit, but at times I’ve also experienced that I get fascinated by the process itself, and it stops the whole astral split from happening, like a cold shower, I loose all the sensations, and need to re-focus. So it’s nice to see how you’re able to gently assess the various effects of the mantras on the astral split but without getting fascinated by it – I think it shows me I’m either a bit too ‘impatient’ and ‘overexcited’ at times and I spoil it as well as getting overly attached to what is happening. It’s interesting though as each time, it feels a bit different and you can just ‘pop out’ or fall asleep but then wake up in your dreams shortly thereafter.
    I loved reading your experiences though – very motivating.

    • Hi Geraldine, I agree about the pitfalls of fascination when exploring a practice. It looks like everyone has their own way of getting fascinated too. 🙂 Like for example for me, I didn’t feel tempted to speed up the process like what you described, but I really liked the vibrations that the sounds produced, and so I kept observing them and chanting even after the split had already taken place (in the Egypto experience). So in this case, instead of just using the astral plane consciously for learning once I got there, I kept being fascinated with the the vibrations and sounds. There are so many traps for us to fall into, aren’t there? 😀

  • Thanks for sharing those experiences Lucia. It’s really good that you were able to investigate thoroughly the effects of the mantras upon your ability to astral project. It’s interesting that you felt the sensations of splitting from your physical body diminishing once you took longer pauses in between pronouncing the mantra mentally. I have sometimes found it difficult to keep up a constant repetition, so have adopted a less rhythmic, “pausing” style. But it sounds like keeping the mantra going in an almost continuous way is actually much better.

    It’s interesting how you switched between hearing the mantra once you were closer to the astral world and then not hearing it as you returned back to the physical world. The “heave ho!” feel of the rusti mantra was also nice 🙂 I like that mantra too, although I haven’t used it much.

  • This was a very helpful guide to mantras, Lucia. I really appreciate your detailed assessment of how each mantra works and the differences in tone you found to produce better results. I think I’m going to have to try to follow your advice with an old favourite: Egypto!

    Your exploration into the breaks between rounds of the mantra is also quite interesting. I’ve also found mantras more effective when chanted without pauses internally.

  • Very inspiring Lucia :-)!

    Looking forward to trying the FaRaOn Mantra tonight now. I’ve been trying it recently but haven’t given it enough of my focus I feel, like you describe with that feeling of exploration.

    Will try out those tips you mention as well. I’ll let you know how it went in the next few days after a few tries! And will report back to get some feedback.
