    About a week ago, I was discussing astral

    projection, sleep paralysis, and lucid dreaming with my best friend. She was telling me how bad she wanted to astral project and explore the astral world. I became very interested in it, but not enough to actually go home and try it. About two nights ago, I lied in bed very...

    Last night, I was sleeping.

    I felt my chest get really tight. It felt like someone was a sitting on my chest. It became difficult to breathe. I tried to switch positions to help catch my breath, but I couldn't move. I kept trying to move and finally I did, and my "spirit" came completely out of my body. My...

    being at the point of the sleep circle when your dream's not that heavy. I felt I was sort of waking up, you know when you do, my mind was becoming clearer and more and more aware of where I was and everything. I started stretching my arms in every direction and rolling in my...
