What are the sensations of astral projection? Many different sensations can be felt prior to, during or following an Out of Body Experience, however, one of the most common sensations reported by those attempting to astral project are vibrations.
These vibrations are also known as the vibrational state (VS). Many accounts from individuals who experience this high-energy phenomenon have said that these vibrations can actually wake them from sleep and can lead to a conscious take-off of the astral body.

What Causes these Vibrations?
This feeling of electricity, tingling or vibration occurs when the chakras, meridians and energy points reach a synchronised resonation. This can occur spontaneously in the right conditions or can be self-initiated through energy exercises such as the VELO (Voluntary Energetic Longitudinal Oscillation). This is where an individual wills their energy to move up and down through the body in a rhythmic fashion.
How do these Lead to Astral Projection?
The vibrations lead to the disconnection of the astral body from the physical body (vehicles of manifestation), and this can lead to a conscious projection. In plain terms, the vibrations “loosen the glue” holding together the astral body to the physical one, allowing it to detach. A conscious astral projection can occur particularly when the vibrations wake a person in the night and they are physically relaxed but mentally aware and lucid. Even when these vibrations are provoked during a waking state (for example through wilful energy exercises), they can still lead to a conscious take-off. Sometimes, these vibrations will precede an astral projection although the individual might quickly lose lucidity and not recall the rest of the experience.
What do the Vibrations Feel Like?
The sensation of vibrating can vary in intensity for different individuals and can range from subtle ‘tingling’ to the sensation of the whole body vibrating intensely. Some have likened this feeling to a surge of electricity running through the body. These sensations can be felt throughout simultaneously or moving from the feet to the head or vice versa. This sensation can also be highly pleasurable for some, leading to an energetic ‘climax’. Sometimes these vibrations can start very subtly as a tingling sensation and increase in intensity. At their most intense, the sensation can seem like every cell in the body is vibrating with electricity and humming like a generator. For those who have not experienced vibrations before, this can be a surprising experience. However, it is important to stay calm and not be alarmed by these sensations. Staying serene will increase the chances of consciously projecting rather than halting or terminating the process.
Other Out of Body Experience Sensations
Other common take-off and landing sensations during an Out of Body Experience can include auditory and olfactory hyper acuity, numbness, intracranial sounds, such as high-pitched buzzing, or loud noises of many types, and rocking and ballooning, where a person feels that they are expanding much like a balloon. The vibrations often felt when attempting astral projections can also lead to other benefits such as increased psychic abilities and heightened lucidity, both when awake and when projecting. It is of much benefit to the individual to harness the ability to install these vibrations at will, although this mostly takes dedication and consistent practice.
