Astral Travel for Beginners explores
the techniques to learn how to leave your body and
explore the Astral realm with confidence according
to its author Richard Webster.
as OBEs or out-of-the-body experiences, abductees
interested in learning how to control or initiate their
own OBEs will appreciate the author's efforts to explain
As Webster points out, no single
method will work for everyone. That is why the exercises
in the book are carefully designed to take the reader
step-by-step through the out of body experience.
The author describes Astral
travel, what it is, and what it isn't. He discusses
Astral traveling while sleeping as well as Astral
traveling with a friend. He discusses diet, clothing, and
what to expect in the Astral world.
Webster does a very adequate job
describing other methods of Astral travel. Some of these
include the swing, French, whirlwind, visualization,
willpower, as well as the Chakra method.
Webster explains bilocation
which is the situation where a person may become visible
while Astral traveling. He also talks about ghosts and
doppelgangers and their impact on Astral travel.
Astral Travel for Beginners
The mid-section of the book is on
relaxation to induce OBEs. It is so complete that an
astute reader could record these pages on a cassette tape
for playback later while practicing OBEs.
When compared with the plethora
of Astral travel books in the New Age section at
bookstores, this book outshines the others. Its
techniques are reliable and do a good job describing what
is probably a more common body function than we realize.
Unlike many other New Age books on this subject,
Webster does not attempt to mystify the subject or cloud
the reader's mind with mumbo jumbo. His information and
techniques are genuinely useful to people seriously
interested in generating their own OBEs.
