Well see, that's where learning to meditate becomes paramount to long term success
without having to rely upon "taking a nap" or "going to sleep" first.
Once you can meditate towards the "Point Consciousness" state, which is where you exist as simply a point of consciousness... no physical body, no physical reality... just you in a void of nothing, then you ARE projecting.
For anyone looking to learn to project, I highly suggest learning to meditate first. Basically, what it sounds like that's happening to you is that you're falling asleep when you lose focus. Work on holding that focus... then work on holding it for extended periods of time with no "mind interruptions". You'll be surprised at how hard this is.
Sit there and try this... and do it honestly... the more you lie to yourself about this the more frustrated you'll become. But if you sit there and just count slowly in your mind from 1 upwards... see how high you can get before a stray thought comes in. That "stray thought" is what I call a "mind interruption".
If you can count to 10 without any mind interruptions, you're doing well. Most people can't.
