I will tell you the technique my father used, he used to do a lot of meditating. One day when he closed his eyes he thought it looks like distance in this darkness, depth. So he decided to see what would happen if he walked into this, he started walking farther and farther deep into this darkness. Slowly he started noticing streaks of light fly by, this became more and more and faster and faster and he realized he was not walking anymore he was flying. It became so fast it was like driving a car 100 miles an hour, light was flying past everywhere all different colors. He was in a tunnel of lights, this went on for a while until he hit something that he could only describe as pure white light, brighter than anything he ever saw and he said we have nothing to which to compare it to. He held up a piece of white paper and said it was like this but it was light, it sounded so pure white like an absents of all color like pigment is for paint. As he went farther through this pure white light he all of a sudden came to a huge set of doors, like giant "Jack and the bean stalk" size doors. He noticed a being standing by him about a head taller dressed in black with a hood, (I guess it looked like the angel of death as I think of it.) This being asked him if he would like to go through the doors, my father said what do I need to do to get through the doors? The being told him he'll ask a question, my father said what if a do not agree, he said you will wake up and forget the question. That was the end of that he woke up from that experience and to this day has no idea what the question was.
I myself have done this with dream projection, the flying 100 miles an hour with the color streak tunnel, only for me I ended up at a void. It was so cool, there was nothing as far as the eyes could see just pure blackness I was not standing on anything I was floating like in outer space but there were no stars. Nothing above nothing below, nothing right, left, front or back. It was just a void like the nothing from which everything came from.
Another time I remember dream projecting to heaven and another time to hell, each by my choices, heaven was curiosity, so when I went there I saw but did not experience, I went as an observer I guess so I experienced being an observer. Hell was an attempt to try to see if I could save some people, it turned out to be a waste of effort, maybe I saved some I guess I might have made some difference if any listened. Just the guy that decided to cut me open from belly to throat distracted that from me and made me decide I was wasting my effort there so I closed my body up and left feeling like this is the thanks I get!
Wade's answer (above) tells you about being on the astral plane- I can tell you a little more about how to get there.
First, you must be in a meditative state. I use this method to get to that state:
I first make sure I am in an environment where I will nor be disturbed for about an hour. Starting at the feet ( I lie down on my bed) I imagine that my feet slowly disengage from my body. I then concentrate on my body, feeling only from the calves upward. Then I "erase" my calves, and repeat that checking of my body from the knees upwards, noting that my calves and feet are "gone". Then I eliminate my knees. I repeat this exercise, slowly working my way up my body, until I am just a head on a pillow. I eliminate my arms when I reach waist level.
Once at my head I then concentrate on peace and nothingness. I usually feel a bit of dizziness or tingling, but I mostly feel like I am floating. When you reach this point, you are ready to astral project.
The projection can go forward in many ways. I am a Shaman, so I look for my "hole in the earth" where I go down and transfer to the spirit world. Then I just ask to go to the cosmos, and each time, I have traveled at great speeds to various places, both on earth and in "Heaven" or the Spirit World. From this point on, the journey is up to you. You must practice getting to that meditative place, if you are not used to doing that.
There are other techniques, but this one I teach to beginners and have had good results with it.
I hope this helps flesh out Wade's answer.
Good luck, and happy travels.
What ever you do practice creating a circle of protection & ask your higher self to provide you constant protection from un-seen forces.
The lower astral is not a place to play with.

Some Astral projection techniques inculdes: 1.Out of Body Exeprience froml lucid dreaming-Lucid dreams are dreams in which the dreamer is aware that he is dreaming. In a Lucid Dream a person is already "out" of his body.
2.Rope method-A key ingredient to this projection technique is an invisible, imaginary ROPE hanging from your ceiling. This ROPE will be used to exert dynamic pressure at a single point on your astral body to force its separation from the physical.
3.Aonther visualizatnoi techniques is Hammock Technique.

Popular astral travel methods never separate astral body from the physical body. For true astral travel, read this:
