I just astral travelled for the first time in a while. As I was dosing off felt the usual feelings of sleep paralysis I was a bit awkward separating from my body but managed in the end. I then floated through my wall and into next doors bedroom and then was zooming through the houses, I wanted to gain some control but must have gone further than I thought. I stopped at one point and I was in a baby's room with a night light on. There was a mirror and I looked in it and I was a very hazy form of myself. I told myself go out of the window and did. I was then on my old street where I used to live, hence zooming a bit further than I thought! it was dark as expected and the street lights were on. I told my self to go to my friends house, which I keep trying to do but failing, I started picking up speed and could feel the wind and the clouds rushing against my face.... But then unfortunately woke up as my husband was going to the bathroom dang!

Does anyone else feel a bit 'clumsy' when astral travelling? Also what's the longest period of time you're able to travel for? I sometimes feel I'm a bit clumsy because I'm a bit panicky because I get too excited ☺️

So are you literally leaving your body or is it just a dream? I've always wondered about this..

This is not just a dream, it's so hard to explain but the first few times it happened I was so 'awake' I thought I was just getting out of bed, until I turned around and saw myself lying in bed - freaky but cool, when this happens you're as conscious as in day to day life, that's how you know you're not dreaming

I have a question- can you explain astral travel to me?

It's basically your conscience leaving your body and as I believe we are our conciecuousness so it's about you, the real you detaching from your physical self and going exploring.

Is it frightening like paralysis or is is more calm?

It's a much more calm and positive experience, I generally don't feel the fear of paralysis anymore, which at one time I wouldn't have believed I would ever say. But when I feel it starting I can just say to myself, okay this is good, use it, and turn it into an out of body experience. Which is usually very positive and quite euphoric, just trying to gain more control over them at the minute which is a bit frustrating more than anything! X
