I havn't really looked into astral projection tbh, it is something that sounds interesting though, I was sitting at the beach yesterday just staring at the twilight and felt so disconnected from myself I nearly left my body!
So pulled myself back in, it was a funny experience I should have stayed disconnected from myself I wonder what would have happened!?!
Previously due to my super calculated and discriminatory thought processes, nearly every dream I had was a lucid dream. I would notice very fast that things were weird and go "hey I'm dreaming". Recently though, I've grown more accepting of strange things because I've learned reality is what you make of it and partly subjective.
But anyway, if you don't have a super discriminatory mind, a good thing to lucid dream more often is to stare at your hands at random times of the day and ask yourself "am I dreaming!? am I dreaming!?", and eventually you will start doing it in your dreams too.
When lucid try not to think too much, mostly enjoy your creations and buy into their reality by suspending your belief. The more conscious you become the more fragile the dream.
