Astral Projection is a very real phenomenon where it is said one's astral body leaves the physical body during hypnosis or meditation. Astral projection or "out of body experience" is said to lead to spiritual insight and enlightenment, but there is a downside.
We are made in the image and likeness of God (who is a Spirit) and it is this spirit (astral body in New Age terms) that is said to leave the body during the meditative state. When you open this door and allow your spirit to wander about, there is also the possibility that the spirit may not find its' way back to the host (your body). Even if this were not true all of the time, there is that one slim chance that it might happen.
There are many people who are on a journey of self discovery and truth who open doors that might be better left closed. I believe astral projection is a very risky venture and I hope that you will seriously consider the pros and cons of this practice before going down that path.
In every case it's been tested, the body has remained where it was, and details of the "projection" were tested against random guesses or prior knowledge. Nothing other than random guessing or deliberate fraud has been observed.
