"Once you have become comfortable at lucid dreaming - and able to fly within lucid dreams with ease and able to move your energetic body beyond your physical confines - you will then be prepared to start venturing outside of your body fully as a fourth density being. It is highly advised that you are conscious of your emotional vibration before ever attempting to astral project - as you have learned your emotions play a crucial role to being able to navigate and fly - as you will find there isn’t always a solid “ground” for you to traverse upon within the astral.
It is also important that you learn how to move your energetic body before attempting an out of body experience, as you may get stuck in a sleep paralysis. Often sleep paralysis comes as an initiation of surpassing fear. You will come to realize that when you are in inbetween states, you will be tested often to ensure that you are spiritually and emotionally ready to move to different levels of reality. You may hear strange noises, strange visions and feel completely out of control. How you learn to cope with this without fear will be crucial to your navigation in other realms.
When you feel that you are ready to leave your body, ensure that you are not in need of sleep - that your body does not need to rejuvinate in the sleep process. Lay down and keep mental focus at all time - without cluttering it with thoughts or narration. Relax your whole body and allow it to go to sleep. Begin rocking your whole energetic body rhythmically out of your physical body and just state with a one worded intention the word “Up” or “Out”. This will always yield results if you have cleared yourself enough. Once you are out of your body you will not enter the astral realms until you harness your emotional frequency (as in the lucid dreams) and fly up past your ceiling in a focused determination to enter the Astral Realm, likewise you can visit the lower world by falling past your body and into the heart of the Earth. It is here that you tap into the Earth Mother and the totemic and ancestral realms.
A note of warning. You may encounter many beings, some docile and some aggressive with varying degrees of intelligence. If you do not have faith in Great Spirit or the light - a faith that is strong and pure, there are some beings in the Astral who will prey upon you. But if your faith in the light of love is strong, then no being will be able to harass you. The Astral holds keys of knowledge and experience ready for you to discover, but it also holds many lies and illusions. It is important to be in touch with your own inner frequencies to know what is of value and what is not.
Likewise, chakra health is very important. You are connected to your chakras even out of body. The lower chakras tie you to the Earth plane, and if you try traveling to high in the astral - you may end up with severe chakra imbalance which will not only force you down lower, but it is likely you will carry this back into the physical with you as a sort of warning system that you are not clear enough to enter the domains you wished to enter.”
