When AP does not happen

Hi all
When AP does not happen, is it because you are not relaxed enough, even though you feel relaxed? Or do you think your inner self does not want to come out of your body yet. This has been on my mind for a long time and it is an AP frustration. Your comments would be appreciated.
Thanks,

There are many factors as to why it might not be happening. Most of the time it's a matter of relaxation and concentration.

Thanks for that Alan. It is true you have to be able to relax and concentrate. You do not have to concentrate all the time. When I go to bed I do not always concentrate and I have AP. My mind has to be relaxed so there cannot be any worries. I just have to wait and keep still and AP but it does not always happen.

I believe your inner or higher self will guide you to ap when it is ready to. In the meantime relax, trust in it, and live your life in a way that synchronizes with you. This will in return help your inner or higher self.

AP intent

I'm finding that much of my AP happens when I am not intending it to happen. But I am usually doing a breathing meditation or healing someone. Today I was doing a healing for a friends horse and was concentrating but realized that while I was aware of my body in bed, I had AP'd to the bathroom and back because I was thirsty. I'm fully aware that one can just visualize a place and be there... but I'm aware that to return to bed I had stepped up on the bottom edge of the bed and walked back into my body. (certainly not my normal route.) It was a new experience for me that I could meditate and do something else at the same time.

So I agree that being in a relaxed state is essential. I also think trying too hard makes it impossible and not an enjoyable journey

Tonight I practiced AP after I had dinner. I do not always practice during the week as it gets too late. I did some stretches before I started. I thought it will not do any harm. It might make my body more relaxed. I did some stretches then I relaxed myself which did not take long. I was enjoying the feeling of being relaxed. As time went on I was wondering when is AP going to happen. After a while I had enough and I woke up. When I woke up, I thought did I AP somewhere? I think I did as I had visions. I thought for now on, I am going to assume I am AP somewhere and I will see what happens.

This might seem like a silly question, but exactly how does one practice AP ?
and how come sometimes it happens and sometimes not ?

asking, from one who has not yet had this experience

I do not think anything about AP is a silly question. So do not worry about it.
Why does AP happen and sometimes not? There may be more to it than what I am about to say. I do know that the mind plays a big part. If you are thinking how long is this going to take. It does not work when you think like that. I sometimes do that. If you have doubts that AP will not happen, it usually does not happen. If anything is annoying you with how you are lying down, you keep thinking about the annoyance. You have to have a good frame of mind. That is very important.
How do you practice AP? Relax yourself, then breath in and out for a while to get more relaxed. When you are relaxed enough, then do whatever technique you want, like imagining climbing a rope, jumping etc. You can imagine you are in your kitchen or anywhere. The important thing is to get relaxed enough before you do a technique. You do not have to do a technique, you can just breathe in and out until AP happens. I have found sometimes that I am waiting for AP to happen and I am there already. I just have to spiritually move out of myself.
If I am practicing at night time I may fall asleep. That is a problem so I relax first, breathe in and out, then I count so I do not fall asleep. You have to really concentrate on counting otherwise you still can fall asleep.

Thank you astralsuzy ! and one more question, do you just go where you are meant to go, or have there been times, where you have a certain intention to go somewhere ?
