How to Perform Astral PK

This article was written by Joe H. Slate, Ph.D. & Carl Llewellyn Weschcke on March 30, 2011
posted under Astral PK

Introduction. This procedure is based on intentionally recognizing the astral body as a non-physical duplicate, or matrix, of the physical body, followed by energizing specific astral body parts to be ideally healthy, and then transferring healthy images to the physical body upon re-engagement.    

Approximately one hour should be allowed for the full procedure, which is conducted in a quiet, safe setting free of interruptions. Here’s the procedure:

Step 1. Statement of Goals. 
While either lying down or reclining in a comfortable position, formulate your goals by affirming your objectives and creating mental images of the desired outcomes. For instance, if your goal is to be full of energy and to enjoy life more, envision yourself engaged in your favorite activities with your body aglow with health and vigor. If your goal is to repair a damaged body organ, envision the organ glowing with vitality and functioning normally. If your goal is to master a certain skill, visualize yourself effectively performing that skill.

Step 2. Induction.
Astral PK combines three elements—relaxation, imagery, and affirmation—to induce the out-of-body state. Once your physical body is fully relaxed, give yourself permission to disengage it, and afterward, to remain in close proximity to it. Remind yourself that you can at any time return to your physical body with ease upon deciding to do so. With your eyes closed, sense your astral body becoming separate from your physical body but remaining near it in the form of a glowing aura of energy that replicates it. (At this point, the astral body is typically experienced as hovering closely over the physical body). Visualize your physical body at rest from your out-of-body position. This induction approach is based on the premise that complexity seeks simplicity. The procedure may require considerable practice, but given sufficient motivation to achieve your goals as stated in Step 1, you will probably be surprised at the ease with which you enter the out-of-body state. 

Step 3. Astral Infusion.
Once apart from your biological body, remind yourself the astral realm is rich in energy and power, and you are now a part of it. Focus on the parallel astral parts or systems to be energized, and saturate them with radiant energy. Mentally engage your biological body at rest, and infuse the counterpart organs and systems with powerful astral energy. Let yourself, both astral and physical, become fully infused and empowered with energy of the highest level. You will at this stage literally sense the saturation of energy and power throughout your total being. NOTE: Do not rush your return to your physical body. Take plenty of time to enjoy the tremendous infusion of energy as you reflect on its relevance to your goals.

Step 4. Astral Return.
The infusion process now complete, initiate astral return by stating your intent to re-unite with your biological body. Self-intent is a powerful force in the out-of-body state. You will almost immediately sense the reunion process. Pay special attention to the powerful merging of the astral body with its physical counterpart. Note the re-union of specific astral and biological parts, including organs and systems. Once re-engagement is complete, you will experience a final burst of powerful energy that fills you totally—mentally, physically, and spiritually. Take plenty of time to enjoy the experience of oneness and power that accompanies this return.

Step 5. Conclusion.
Review the experience and mentally re-infuse your body with healthful vigor. Again, mentally saturate specific organs and systems with positive energy, then affirm. I am at my peak of empowerment. Open your eyes and take time to reflect on the experience.

Alternative Action: Accelerating Recovery from Injuries. Along with its many other uses, Astral PK has been used to accelerate recovery from a wide range of sports-related injuries. It is particularly effective in the treatment of muscle and joint injuries, to include sprains, joint injuries, and even concussions. Some athletes use the procedure routinely to prevent injury by infusing the physical body with protective astral energy prior to practice, workout, or competitive events.

Summary of Purpose & User Benefits: To image the astral matrix of your physical body, to infuse it or any specific body part with healing energy, or to protect the body against injury.
