Is astral projection a sin?

I do this thing called astral projection, which is where I meditate and try to achieve an altered state of conciousness that gives the feeling of being out of one's body. Literally, it feels that there is a separation of me and my body. Is this a sin.

While I can't cite any Biblical evidence against it-

I wouldn't do it as this is the kind of thing that gets people started in the occult. I've read some testimonies that involved this kind of thing and it was a start for falling away from God. It's best to avoid this kind of thing. An alternative that I'd give instead would be to spend your time actively seeking after God, in prayer with Him. I think you'll be amazed at what God does in your life when you are actively seeking His will in your life!

I don't think so...in regards to tcwoods91 comment, I believe that while yes, it is the kind of thing that could get people started in the occult, I think that it is also up to the person(you) to make sure that you don't take it too far, you know what I mean? As long as you keep God first, I can't see how astral projection could be a sin.

Personally I would call astral projection, lucid dreaming, etc to be kind of 'fringe' things. In and of themselves I wouldnt really say anything is wrong about doing them, however... From there I can tell you exactly how easy it is to become curious about, and then involved in more occult-y things...

Just be aware that its easy to be curious and then more about the occult/paganism/etc.

Allow me to play devil's advocate for a minute....


Jesus never taught about facebook, or internet forums, or Microsoft Windows. Why use them?

Okay maybe that was a terrible example. Basically, is there anything wrong with astral projection at its core principle? If so, please explain.

Personally, I think its kind of silly. That's it.

If you play with fire long enough—you will get burnt!
Ecclesiastes 12:6-7
Remember him-before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. There are some who believe the reference to the “silver cord” in
the above bible verse is a reference to the silver cord that
is thought to connect our soul to our body that is at times
reported by those who have left their bodies. If this cord is ever severed, we cannot get back into
our body. The separation of spirit and flesh becomes final. In other words, when we die. Our body then
becomes a carcass. So as the Bible advises us, it is best to “remember God” and
abandon attempts to mess around with things beyond our
understanding. For anyone who has successfully astral projected, they should now be aware that there is a vast world that exists outside of the physical realm—in
confirmation of God’s Word-the Bible. And the Bible advises us on that as well. King Solomon, who
wrote the book of Ecclesiastes, concluded by saying, Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the
matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.
-- Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
And yea we've all got one life to live, lets use it wisely.

If we die if something goes wrong in astral projection and we believe and accept Christ, won't we just end up in heaven anyways?

Besides, there's really no indicator that someone is actually able to leave their body through with their soul....Actually I take that back. You ever heard of the saying 'someone is out of their mind?' That's astral projection, because it requires you to be out of your mind.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. I don't buy into it, but if they can do it more power to them.
