Astral Projection
A Very Bad Idea

 

Astral Projection - Catholic Reviews

Astral projection is a technique used by witches and other occult members to travel in the spirit realm. The process usually starts with meditation. Once a person enters a trance-like state, his spiritual body is able to depart from his physical body. Witches and other occult members use this practice to spy on others, to cast spells, and to attend satanic rituals when it is not possible to be there in person.

According to the Angelic Inspirations website, the following advice is offered to people who want to achieve an out-of-body experience. "Begin with a partial separation. The key here is thought control. Keep your mind firmly focused on the idea of leaving the body."1 Once a person enters a condition known as the "vibrational state," with assistance from demonic powers, he can either experiment with a partial separation by releasing a hand or foot, or he can attempt a full-body separation.

According to this website, the participants are advised to "think about getting lighter and lighter after entering the vibrational state. Think about how nice it would be to float upward. Keep this thought in mind at all costs and let no extraneous thoughts interrupt it. An out-of-body experience will occur naturally at this point."2

"Another method is the rotation method or roll-out technique. When you have achieved the vibrational state, try to roll over as if you were turning over in bed. Do not attempt to roll over physically. Try to twist your body from the top and virtually roll over into your second body right out of your physical self. At this point, you will be out of the body, but next to it. Think of floating upward, and you should find yourself floating above the body."3

Once an occult member perfects this technique, that person can begin traveling in the spirit realm. When witches use this process for casting spells or interfering in another person's life, they are commonly referred to as "trafficking" witches. At other times witches will use spirit travel to interfere with deliverance sessions. For example, if one member of the coven wants to seek deliverance, the other members will most likely follow her around in the spirit in an attempt to interfere with her conversion process.

Although Sacred Scriptures make reference to spirit travel in 2 Corinthians 12:2–4, Catholics are not allowed to use demonic powers to separate from their bodies. If in the event the faithful encounter a trafficking witch, they should ask God to strip that person of all demonic powers and to have that person sealed back into her own body, using the name, power, and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Scripture Passages to Set the Captives Free
 

"Discipline yourselves, keep alert. Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around looking for someone to devour. Resist him, steadfast in your faith." — 1 Peter 5:8–9

"Little children, you are from God, and have conquered them; for the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore what they say is from the world, and the world listens to them." — 1 John 4:4–5

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." — Ephesians 6:10–12
