Continuing with the Astral projection series I would like to report some fantastic news. Progress. As many of you already know I have dedicated myself to learning to astrally project and Lucid dream. I believe these two are different things and I have a separate definition for them. Finally after five and a half months, this morning I had a breakthrough.
I got a chance to have a lie down about 9am this morning so I thought that I would take the chance to try for an OBE. Recently the only chances I have had to try, have been in the evening before bed. All the research I have done on the subject suggests to me that whilst OBE’s can be done in the evening, this is not the opportune time to have them, especially for a beginner. It is suggested in pretty much every place I go for information, that the best time to try is after about five hours of sleep, (I had, had six.) and going back to ‘sleep’ after staying a wake for a short time. (Which I did.) I started my attempt about one hour after rising for my son who had slept in until 8am. (Happy day.)
So I started my attempt with a guided meditation that uses binaral beats in the background to help with mind state. I skipped the relaxation part as I am now pretty good at relaxing fully and quickly when I concentrate. Although I relaxed easily, I kept failing the sleep tests my body was sending. For those of you know don’t know what these are I will explain.
When we want to have an OBE our body must fall asleep before our mind. Once this happens our body will go into what is called sleep paralysis mode which will stop us from being able to physically act out our dreams. To test if this can happen yet the body will send a signal to scratch, roll over or swallow to find out if the mind is asleep. If you ignore these signal your body gets heavy and numb and sleep paralysis begins. Well, I swallowed and scratched a lot, though I didn’t roll over.
I thought it would be a no go as usually I can at least remain still. The hour long guided meditation ran through and stopped, still nothing was happening and I kept swallowing, even coughing at times. When the mediation ended however I decided not to give up completely and I did not turn it back on. I remained as still as I could and tried to clear my mind. I am not sure if my mind got completely clear though because next thing I knew I was in a dream. Not quite a lucid one either.
I was dreaming that I was working in some sort of newspaper that wrote about different sixth sense abilities. I introduced a girl that I can not remember the name of, to someone, but can not discern who. I introduced her as the Astral Projection writer. I think I said “This is ‘Blah’, she does Astral projection” then I remember thinking, “What is it that I would do here? I guess it would be channeling” Like I was deciding. Then my right astral arm lifted and it was like that made me snap into the vibrational stage.
My body was ‘buzzing’ all over. I tried to keep it going and probably got a good 15-30 seconds of vibration before it totally receded. I realized it was because I was coming out of the dream state, I was asking myself if this was the vibration of projection or the tingling associated with channeling. Then I realized I was loosing the vibrations and I tried to focus on them that bought them back for a bit, but I think I tensed up to try to control the vibrations instead of just letting them happen and they faded away. After that the phone rang and I had to get up.
Before this I have had movement in my astral body before, kind of stretching, like I am made of water, rocking motions. Sometimes I feel like I have flipped upside down on my bed an am backwards in my body but only for a second. The same goes for dizziness, I get weird dizzy sensations but they only last for maybe a second and then they are gone. I realized though that these feeling never went anywhere because I am so out of control in that state that I immediately want it to stop, so it does. I try to make them last but I haven’t succeeded yet. It seems as though this is all movement with-in my body and this is why I hadn’t experienced the vibrations before. But I am certainly excited about my new progress and can’t wait to try again.
