Witness events outside the users body
Astral Projection is Sushard's mental ability to trick an individuals mind and project an illusionary form of himself outside of his body; to project his mind into an identical active, concious form of himself.
Sushard's ability has only been known to work on one individual at a time. A flaw with his gift is typically, his physical body is rendered vulnerable to harm and sometimes falls to the floor, slumps over or remains still while standing up until he returns to it.
Since this power is only mind based, it cannot effect Mental Shields, Edward Cullen can't read his mind in this state, as his mind takes .
