I often use affirmations in my astral projection practice. However, it’s not enough just to say them, there are certain techniques that should be implemented.
Affirmations are used in many areas and the actual techniques are the same regardless of subject matter.

Affirmations in Out-of-Body Experiences
This morning I didn’t have my usual Sunday morning OBE, I did wake up early and could have tried for one but I simply forgot and went back to sleep. When I finally woke up I was a bit annoyed with myself. The problem was that I had not been focused in the desire to leave my body but had let my mind wander into other things.
So this morning I have been re-reading and listening to a few things I have on Mindfulness. Mindfulness is basically being in the moment and not letting the mind wander away into thinking about something else. Practising mindfulness during the day can help us to achieve successful out-of-body experiences because it helps us to develop our concentration. If we practise focusing on the present moment eventually this will be reflected in our dreams and we will wake up in the dream, we will become lucid. Lucid dreaming is but a step away from an out-of-body experience.
A popular lucid dreaming technique is looking at your hands often during the day and asking yourself ‘Am I dreaming?’ This is, in effect, focusing in that present moment, it is tuning in your mind to the thing you are doing, i.e. looking at your hands. When attempting astral projection being present in the mind is of utmost importance, if your mind wanders you could lose lucidity and become lost in the contents of your mind as your thoughts rise up before you. The astral is thought and feeling sensitive so what you have in your mind can appear before you.
Sometimes you may be lying in the mind awake/body asleep state not really clear if you are fully awake in the physical or not. The room appears the same, you may get up and go to the loo in your astral body thinking you are in your physical body. This has happened to me several times. If we are mindful also when out-of-body we will notice slight anomalies. Maybe a piece of furniture in the wrong place, a picture that isn’t there, even someone who is there who shouldn’t be. Thus if you are focused and mindful you will realise that you are in fact out-of-body.
So mindfulness is important for our lives in the physical and for our astral activities. Practising mindfulness during the day will be reflected in our night time astral activities, the quality and frequency of your conscious out-of-body experiences will improve.

Here is a short video about the source of mindfulness, rather appropriate to my forgetting to try for an OBE this morning as Thich Nhat Hanh says that the opposite of mindfulness is forgetfulness.
