Well, I'm Getting There

I haven't mastered astral projection yet, though I have had quite a bunch of them.

It actually started with sleep paralysis when I was 13. I had no idea it was actually the precursor to astral projection until 2 years later when I came across astral projection, was curious and finally was able to have my own. When I first asked people on the internet about astral projected, they laughed and said it was so not real, and you'd have to be high to have one. Of course, I try to keep my mind open so I did more search into it and got an idea of what it would be like. One night, it just happened o.o I felt that sleep paralysis, that somewhat horrible feeling of vibrations, noises, and the ominous feeling in the room, and everything just clicked. I was like "oh my god, this is what happened to me when I was 13, this was actually what I have been searching for all along."

So, I kept still and relaxed, and about two minutes into the sleep paralysis, I kid you not folks, this was the freakiest of the freaky, my other body (soul, spirit, other body, whatever it is) just slipped out next to me. I was too terrified, so I thrashed around until I ended up back in my body. Mind blowing experience I tell yee.

After a few times of having these projections, I figured out the general way you have them. Your mind has to be awake while your body is asleep. (hence going into the sleep paralysis.)

My experience in general have been awesome. I haven't encountered anything negative, just weird lol. Stuff in the astral is not quite 100% like things on the physical. I know sometimes the items in my room are switched around. So it's not accurate, but nonetheless it's just awesome. You are fully conscious as you just "glide" around.

I haven't been able to get out of my house much yet. I'd love to and be able to see earth with my own soul, lol? Mostly I just run around my house bouncing off walls or dragging myself around...sometimes it can be hard to move lol. My experiences don't last two long. Usually about 2 minutes, and then I get dragged back in. Some people have made them last a long time though.

If you got through this, thanks for reading ^_^ If you are interested to see what an astral projection is like, you should really check out this quirky animated video about it.

I've been able to induce it once but I was too scared to continue because I heard that it can be dangerous. I guess like messing with the occult. I just feel like I'm wasting something few people get to experience even if its just a dream. I'm torn do you have any advice?

It is scary, so I understand you. People that are saying that it's dangerous are likely religious brainwashed and have never even had one. It happens to me sometimes without me even trying to induce it, therefore I can't think it would be a bad thing. Many people do it. I wish I could find a certain video. It was about a lady who dealt with people in a hospital who often would describe similar experiences involved with astral projection to her. She thought they were delusional and needed more medicine, until she actually had one herself and realized what they had been talking about and that she had been wrong.

You can talk to others about it on astral pulse or spiritual forums.

I meant you can get others input as well if that helps you.

Thanks I'll definitely check it out.
