    I HAD A DREAM I SEEN MY SPIRIT EXIT MY FLESH THROUGH THE CEILINGS OF MY ROOF INTO OUTTERSPACE I WAS SKY ROCKETING LIKE A SPACE SHUTTLE, ACTUALLY MORE LIKE A SHOOTING STAR, KINDA REMIND ME OF VAN HALEN’S SONG “LOVE WALKS IN” LOL THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN I FELT THIS SENSATION LIKE ESTACY THAT BURST AND FROM THERE I SEEN EVERYTHING MY WHOLE LIFE WAS BEING REVIEW TO ME AT A SPLIT SECOND. EVERYTHING FROM DAY ONE FROM THE VERY 1ST DAY I WAS PUT OUT OF MY MOTHERS’ WOMB TO THAT VERY PRESENT DAY. IT WAS THE BEST FEELING INTHE WORLD. AFTER THAT 1ST ASTRAL PROJECTION I RECALL HAVING SEVERAL MORE. WITHIN THAT WEEK I COULD REMEMBER SEEING AN IMAGE OF ORION BEING REVEAL TO ME EXCEPT IT WASN’T JUST A STAR OF 3. I SEEN AF FLESH THAT LOOKED LIKE JESUS THAT WAS FLOATING OUT IN SPACE AND ANOTHER FLESH THAT LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE HIM EXCEPT HIS SKIN TONE WAS A LITTLE DARKER. I WAS STANDING ACROSS FROM THE 2 NEITHER ONE SAID A WORD. TO ME IT LOOKED LIKE THERE WAS NO SOUL IN THEM… FROM THEN I STARTED HAVING NIGHTMARES FOR A COUPLE WEEKS I EVEN STARTED PRAYING FOR IT TO GO AWAY AT THE TIME. LOL! I HAD NEVER HAD THIS TYPE OF EXPERIENCE BEFORE. NOW IT SEEMS PRETTY NATURAL HAVING MY 3RD EYES OPEN I NO LONGER FEAR THE DEMONS. WHILE HAVING OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCES THE DEMONS FEAR ME… WISH I COULD SHARE MORE DREAMS, OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCES, AND ASTRAL PROJECTIONS EXPERIENCES BUT IT’S THANKS GIVING I GOT SOME OF MY FAMILY OVER HERE. GOTTA GO WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS… STAY BLESS!

    i used to travel out of my body lots of times as a child it used to scare the hell out of me
    & when ever i told an adult they thought i was crazy and took me to a priest but nothing could make me stop until i reached like the age of 5 and stopped wetting my bed.i tryed to put it behind me and lead a normal life as the years progressed i stopped astral projecting and started to believe that they were childhood dreams and night mares those beings coming into my room with horse faces, a creepy lady who was missing her face and only had eyes,strange prophetic visions of future events ect.ect,all of it until one day when i matured.i became old enough to make sound decisions and started to look at the people around me and a different way.i was being drawn back to the astral realm.i guess my spirit decided i had the capacity to take it. and then it started happening again.i meet many different beings and went to many different places. i have discovered a different view of life i was put in the middle of a battle between good and evil on a quest to eliminate the egos in order to become the superman. i can meet life forms that have recently passed away and are still in the 5th dimension i can zap away unwanted intruders and demons from the lower hell regions, i discovered that by highering my vibrations i have the key to meeting angelic beings and going into planes of existence that only others sharing my energies can go to. i can visit places that fill the soul with so much music and joy that when i return to the physical plane i pick up my guitar and can never play the wonderful melodies that iv’e heard i have so much time in the astral and so much understanding of it that i no longer fear death because i know. the sad thing is that humanity doesn’t understand what wonderful beings they are and what they are capable of thanks to astral projection.

    I found myself in the middle of space trapped inside of an elevator
    with three other people. This elevator was located inside of an
    immense glass cube that was just floating in space as if it were it’s
    own planet. Suddenly the elevator dropped and the three people that
    were trapped inside with me began to scream. I remained calm and
    still. I began to focus all of my energy into bringing the elevator
    to a complete stop before we hit the bottom. I felt the energy begin
    to get stronger and stronger within me. Within moments right before
    we hit the bottom this energy exploded outward and forced the
    elevator to shoot up the elevator shaft. The energy was so strong
    that the elevator shot out breaking the top of the glass cube and
    headed out towards space. I immediately knew that I had to bring the
    elevator back into the cube as we would be lost in space. I focused
    all of my energy back into my body, bringing it tightly in. The
    elevator slammed back onto the exterior of the cube and began to skid down it’s
    sides. As the elevator made it’s way around the cube it left behind a
    trail of broken glass. Once the elevator got to the bottom of the
    cube I focused on bringing it back into the cube. I slammed it into
    the base of the cube and managed to get it inside by breaking the
    glass. Once inside, in front of me lay a swimming pool. The water was of orange
    and white light. It almost looked like fire but it wasn’t hot. Inside
    of the swimming pool were bodies made up of the same light. They were
    swimming and diving into that divine body of light. I turned to the
    three people that were in the elevator with me and told them “do not
    be afraid, we cannot be destroyed as we are eternal”. At peace they
    proceeded into that swimming pool. I walked over to a metal double
    door and opened it with my thoughts. Behind it were two people
    staring at me in disbelief as they were the people responsible for
    making the elevator collapse in attempt to have us killed. I looked
    at them and repeated these same words “do not be afraid, we cannot be
    destroyed as we are eternal”.

    my main astral projection experience has come from the plant salvia divininorium however in dreamtime I can reach similar states. Basically I feel the plant upon consumption, like a sound that resonates from a drum when you strike it, ‘played a note’ that sounded like the voice of every human Ive ever spoken too that cheered ‘RYAN! YOU DID IT! HURRAY!’ and changed my energy level literally tearing the physical world in two including my body however like a little russian doll there was another ‘me’ inside that was made entirely of luminescent radiating light.. and I was not alone.. an unnamed but unmistakably familiar being like an old friend guided me through a mathematically perfected geometrical realm that was made of living light and communicating to me.. after a few moments I was lead to back to the portal to my body and I remember laughing watching my body from the higher-realm-of-light as it was rolling on the floor trying to stand up and not break the pipe which had been spilled. I realized that we have always been eternal beings formed out of the ‘One Energy’ source and that this universe is one of infinite universes and that we can come here when ever we want to grow and adventure and laugh and cry and be something new and wondrous and forget like it all just began now for the first time, truly a beautiful experience

      Besides plants I believe FASTING helps induce out of body experience or even Astral projections. Before I actually went out of body I had alot of SLEEP PARALYSIS But Back then I didn’t know what sleep paralysis was. I though it was a ghost LOL! Basis on everyone’s story people believe it has to do with an evil spirit holding you down …. Some call it Alien abduction…… I was never really into Sci fi then all the sudden I became a Sci fi freak lol….

    I’ve read other people’s comments and it sounds more like dreaming than astral projecting. I actually astral project, but I hate it and everytime I get the feeling that I’ve died and I’m floating up to heaven. It usually happens when I’m extremely tired, and I’m laying in bed waiting to fall asleep. Before I actually do fall asleep my body gets this tingle, and I start to float up. I panic as soon as the tingle happens because I don’t like what happens next. I float up and I can see my body, i usually float straight up and by the time I get to the ceiling, I start to float back down because I am so panicked and try as had as I can to “swim” back down to my body. I float up way faster than I float down. The last time I projected, my fiance was in bed with me, and I started to float up, but just a foot or so above my body. Then my “spirit” started to twist to manouver out of my bedroom torwards the door around the corner. I knew that my body wasn’t going back down, and the only thing when I project I can do to move my body is breath heavily. I started panting and Daniel shook me, and I was instantly snapped back into my body. It’s always scary, and even though I know people TRY to astral project, I just don’t think it’s for me, even though I guess I don’t have a choice.

    Before I Astral projected I was curious about RELIGION and GOD I remember praying like a PAGAN to GOD or gods seeking for a answer from a higherpower . At the time I was confused and didn’t know which God to pray to shoot I have family that are Buddhist, some are Christians and it seem like everyone was trying to get me to do things their way but it just wasn’t enough for me. Then one night it happen I went to bed and some how I awaken onthe otherside- my spirit some how went flying out of my body- I floated straight through the ceilings of the walls of room and into outerspace. wish I could animated the description for you to get a better picture lol it kinda reminds me of the song “KRYPTONITE by 3Doors down or Airplanes by B.O.B lol even that isn’t enough you actually got to Experience it for yourself to believe . Oh yeah check out . BEYONCE’S music video “Sweetdreams” the very begining of the video shows a animated version of an outofbody experience with the white dove flying up into celings – check it out and tell me if your OOBE was similar…. PEACE!

    NOTE: This is a whole experience from my public Dream Journal. First it starts out as a dream which turns into a lucid dream, then I attempt to Astral Project from my lucid dream without success falling into a non lucid nightmare, which I turn lucid again and attempt to astral project with success. I will point out the Astral Projection part with a line of “=” but I think the whole read is worth.

    I was in the beach with some friends. The sun was bright and I was going to take a swim. Suddenly, I turned lucid with no reason. I started to look around and realized the dream was fuzzy. Instead of taking off and flying as usual, I decided to say, “Clarity Now” I said that a couple of times, but only the second time worked somehow. I wanted to fly as I am used to do so to make sure I prevent premature awakening. I was flying over downtown and I decided to land once my dream was stable.

    I recalled that if I allowed myself to fall on my back on a lucid dream and I focused on Astral Projection I could project. I decided to give it a shot. I jumped on my back and focused on Astral Projection.

    I started to fall in a pit surrounded by lava. I saw the dream in third person for a few seconds. I could feel the burn in my skin. Suddenly, I was like in a maze. There was lava on the roof and the walls were made of lava. There was an efrit on my back and a demon in front of me.
    The efrit was all red, he had fire on his head and his hands. He had a very evil looking and a very weird face. The demon was light brown and it had like hair all around. He had very big horns but his face did not looked as evil.
    I though that for some reason I projected to a low vibrational realm. They escorted me to some place. I was very afraid of the efrit for some reason, however, he left.

    I was now in a big hall with some steps on my back. I was in front of the demon.

    I decided to do a reality check as I started to wonder why the hell I was there. I had six fingers in my hand. I realized I failed to Astral Project and I falled into a non lucid dream. I felt better, however, I was still a little afraid of the efrit. I decided to torture the demon before the efrit returned. I tried to open a void in the wall, but I could not. I told the demon, “You, fucking demon. You better open a portal for me or I will destroy you. This is my dream so you better open me a portal to leave this place.” The demon approached the wall and I saw like a small void opening. I placed my hand on the void but all I felt was the hard wall. I told the demon, “You better open the portal at once!” The demon started to freak out. He was afraid of me.

    I saw the steps and realized that I could attempt to Astral Project again. The dream quality and the lucidity was superior, so I knew it would work. I focused on Astral Projection and jumped on my back.
    =============================================

    I was suddenly in my room. Floating on the top of my bed. I was a little nervous from the efrit dream. I could see my body in bed next to my wife. I did a reality check and it did not fail. i could read and everything looked normal. I wanted to get away from my body before it called me back.

    I floated around my room and walked through the closed door. I want to point out that I have never being able to do that on a lucid dream (and I am natural) I always smash into smithereens walls and doors or I bounce back like would happen in waking.

    I floated over my living room and I decided to leave home. I floated through the wall and I exited. I was floating through my neighborhood and felt very free. I could float and move just with my thoughts (vs a dream that I have to make some effort to fly) I had no worries, just endless calm. I started to think in White light for protection to raise my Astral vibrations. I felt my astral body with even more energy. I kept floating and moving when I felt my wife moving in bed. I experienced double consciousness and I was back in my body. The return to my body was instantaneous and comfortable. Usually, I am confused when I wake from a lucid dream, but not from Astral Projection. My wife was still moving in bed when I was back in my body. I waited a few minutes in bed. I was exiting trance and I needed to ground myself

    Walking in the astral is not a New Age thing for me–in fact, it’s very old age, as in a connection with the collective mind of humanity as far back as our beginning. I was fortunate to be introduced to the concept while a child, with a child’s open mind and belief that anything is possible. This is, I believe, the reason I am able to slip into the astral through relaxation and meditation. I imagine my astral self peeling away from my physical form, and soon I experience a sensation like chilled quicksilver pouring down my spine. I never see the me I’m leaving behind; perhaps I don’t look back. The astral feels nothing like death or dreaming. I go to drink from a well of rejuvenation and reflection, of wisdom and universal humility. The astral refreshes my being and at the same time reminds me of how small I really am compared to the universe. This last part might sound daunting, but for me it’s a reminder that the challenges of my physical life are surmountable. What do I see in the astral? There is no such thing as “seeing”. My astral self is accessing an entirely different set of senses. I believe I demonstrate my experiences in the astral through a daily life of compassion and insight. Sometimes I kid about having a summer home in the astral plane, but the astral is much more of a companion reality for me. I don’t know what my life would be without my journeys in the astral, but I am grateful that the astral allows me within.

    An infinite-pointed star begins to grow behind my closed eyelids… ZZZzzzooom! I’m catapulted through the star and into hyperspace. Into total and infinite Reality, the endless ocean of energy that is the Cosmos. Into everything in the entire Universe at once, realizing that there is only One Infinite Consciousness and that your and my individualized portions are but tiny holographic fractions of the Whole, and that the boundaries between us can be dissolved and the wounds of separation healed by expanding our awareness with spiritual practice: devotion to God, fervent prayer, breathwork, meditation, shamanic drumming, ecstatic dance, chanting the names of God, energy manipulation, plant and chemical entheogens, sacred sexuality, fasting, sensory deprivation, etc.

    Still seeing beautiful crystalline geometry everywhere, I remember. No I don’t remember, it’s déjà vu. No not déjà vu, it’s actually happening. I’m not only just aware of the Now, I’m aware of every point in my past simultaneously. I’m not just aware that I had these experiences, I’m having them in the Present. There is only the Absolute Present. Time is gone. There is no past, no future, no history. Everything is occurring in One Infinite Moment.

    I find myself inside a boundless sphere, an infinite space that feels like being inside a vast bubble despite the fact that there is absolutely no outside of the bubble. I find myself in an endless spherical ocean of thought and energy. In all directions space itself is somehow visibly fractioned into ever tinier and tinier holographic copies of the Whole. I feel stupid. It seems so obvious. Each and every point in the Universe is a Universe in itself. The One Universe. A copy. A fractal. A hologram. Reality is boundless. I exist within a construct of space and time that exists as a holographic representation built by Consciousness, the Creator and Experiencer of the endless energy flow of the Universe.

    Now I can hear the internal voice of not only myself, but every other being in the Cosmos. Infinite overlapping thoughts in English and every other human language. Thoughts that aren’t even made of language. Plant thoughts. Animal thoughts. Star thoughts. Alien thoughts. Alien thoughts!?

    “BANG! LISTEN UP! I’M TALKING TO YOU!”

    Holy shit! It’s happening again! The Alien. The words are audible, tangible, a voice both heard and felt inside me. The voice is the same familiar “inner thought” voice that I have always had, but right now it is not under my control. Someone else is speaking to me using MY inner voice? How? Why? In fact I find my normal control over my inner thought voice to be completely blocked or scrambled somehow. If I try to have a personal thought to myself about what is happening, I get nothing but a mass jumble of random words piled on top of each other. Hundreds of sentences, but with all the words occurring at once and therefore ending up as complete gibberish. No, my inner voice is already in use.

    “THIS MAY SEEM IMPOSSIBLE. YOU MIGHT FEEL EMBARRASSED FOR EVEN HAVING THIS THOUGHT, BUT YOU ARE NOT THINKING IT, I’M TELLING YOU! MY CONSCIOUSNESS TO YOURS. I EXIST IN SPIRIT AND PERMEATE THE COSMOS, AND SO DO YOU. WE CAN SHARE INFORMATION. I WANT TO KNOW YOU AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH HELP I HAVE TO OFFER YOU. I CAN TELL THAT YOU DOUBT THAT THIS IS HAPPENING. I CAN PROVE THAT I AM REAL AND THAT I AM IN CONTROL RIGHT NOW. TRY TO OPEN YOUR EYES, YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU CANNOT. TRY TO STAND UP, YOU WILL FIND THAT YOU CANNOT. TRY TO EVEN HAVE A THOUGHT.”

    I can’t. I’m dumbfounded. I’m terrified but in utter awe. The fear that I’ve somehow broken Reality or broken my mind washes over me. At first I’m frightened that the experience will never end. I’m thunderstruck, but then totally calm because I’m being reassured by some warm Entity that this experience will end and I will regain control of my mind and body as soon as I receive a clear message. I’m all ears…

    “FOR NOW YOU ONLY NEED TO KNOW AND BELIEVE THAT I AM NOT A FIGMENT OF YOUR IMAGINATION. I AM REAL AND WE CAN COMMUNICATE. YOU MUST NOT TRY TO EXPLAIN THIS EXPERIENCE AWAY WITH YOUR LIMITED AND FLAWED HUMAN KNOWLEDGE. WHEN YOUR EGO RETURNS, YOU MUST NOT ALLOW IT TO SHED DOUBT ON WHAT I AM SHOWING YOU NOW. YOU CAN FEEL NOW THAT WHAT I SAY IS ABSOLUTE TRUTH.”

    I can.

    “YOU MUST HAVE FAITH. FAITH IS NECESSARY FOR A BEING TO GROW SPIRITUALLY.”

    Okay. And then I feel the release. I pause for a second and enjoy a free thought. I realize I can now once again control my inner voice. I tell myself to open my eyes. They open. Faint but brilliantly colored sparks dance in the darkness around me. I take a sigh of relief. I think about what just happened to me. Huge mistake…
    With the return of my human ability to reason comes a flood of doubt and paranoia. Had I just had a psychotic break? Don’t schizophrenics hear voices in their heads and believe them to be real? Don’t they hold mental conversations with imagined beings, spies, dead relatives, angels, demons, aliens…? Have I lost it? But I was told that my ego would bring back with it doubt. I was told to have faith. Faith… Why does this sound so familiar? Déjà vu… I close my eyes and am confronted again by utter timelessness. I am myself at every age of my life, from birth to death, and every other form I have ever taken and will ever take. Is this happening?

    “HAVE FAITH!”

    Faith? My whole childhood I was told by my mom to have faith. I was told in church to have faith. I had thought this meant forcing myself, against all common sense, to accept the Holy Bible as a complete and literal description of God and his relationship to his Creation. I now see that faith is misunderstood.

    God, the One, the Infinite, is beyond literal description, beyond the limits of words. Truth is necessarily distorted by the simple act of committing it to language.

    Scriptures, thus, reveal only limited portions, or distortions, of the Truth, which is One and Whole. The Bible and all sacred texts are complex multi-layered mythologies, interweaving into the histories of peoples and nations poetic descriptions of mystical and prophetic events, accounts of enlightened beings and their teachings, scientific, spiritual, metaphysical, and cosmological data embedded in symbolism, and much more. However, these texts have been interpreted and re-interpreted over and over again, too often by unenlightened and negatively oriented minds. Meanings have been bent to fit social and cultural trends and for political conquest. Faith, therefore, cannot mean the blind belief in the literal accuracy of one religion’s scriptures over the rest, but must refer to the intuitive certainty that Infinite Truth cannot be wholly contained in any description but can without a doubt be directly experienced as the inner, mystical currents within all of the world’s wisdom traditions suggest.
    Faith means realizing that I exist in a world that exists within me. Faith means knowing that I am inside you and you are inside me and we are both inside a world that is inside each of us. Faith means knowing that we are all a part of the One. There’s no other way it could be. All of the beings on this planet, all of the beings in the Universe, though seemingly separate, are in fact inseparably interconnected. Each individualized portion of the Universe has access to a holographic copy of the Whole created by Consciousness as it generates and filter-feeds through the energetic ocean of Infinity.

    Our separate realities are fabrications, tiny distorted fractions of the Truth. Our everyday experiences of the world are dictated by our brains recognizing and interpreting everything they’ve been conditioned to believe to be Reality and throwing everything else out. This strategy is great for simple organic evolution, but obviously physical evolution can only go so far before the most highly evolved creatures on a planet become so evolutionarily successful that they begin to destroy themselves and their world. We have foolishly over-reproduced and overpopulated the Earth causing plagues and viruses to arise. We have greedily depleted the planet’s resources and made war on each other over the scraps. We have carelessly burned fuel, drastically disrupting the homeostasis of the planet, causing catastrophic climate changes. We have synthesized and ingested unnatural and inorganic preservatives, hormones, dyes, and other artificial ingredients that have led to cancers and birth defects and even more damage to the Earth. We have manufactured and prescribed pharmaceutical drugs that have caused more mental and physical pain than they have alleviated.

    So what is the solution? How can humans continue to survive now that we have reached the obvious end of physical evolution? The answer is Faith. Humans must have faith in the unlimited potential of the One Mind, Universal Consciousness, God. All things will come together for good for those who love the One and live in harmony with each other. It is the human Self, therefore, that must evolve, or devolve in a sense, shedding the ego and the notion of separateness and reintegrating back into Oneness with the Collective Mind of the Universe, and most immediately Oneness with our planet and its co-inhabitants – the earth’s plants, animals, and chemicals.
    This is where entheogens come into play. For thousands and thousands of years, tribes of humans lived in relative harmony with each other and the planet. They accomplished this through a shamanic understanding of the Consciousness of Nature. Through shamanism, people gleaned Divine wisdom via certain plants and fungi. Just as God has given us plants and fungi for our physical nourishment and health, God has also given us plants and fungi for our mental and spiritual nourishment and health. There are plants and fungi on this planet that feed us and plants and fungi that treat our illnesses. And there are also plants and fungi that miraculously give one access to the Collective Mind by dissolving the ego, the imaginary membrane around the Self that tricks people into thinking that we are separate from the grass we are standing on, the water we are drinking, the air we’re breathing, or the person passing us on the sidewalk.

    You see, entheogens do not have to be looked at as some kind of a shortcut to “legitimate” spiritual practice. They do not have to be seen as something outside of the Self. In Truth, there is nothing outside of the Self. There is only One Reality. And the Reality is that we are all One. An Alien told me this.

    And in case you haven’t figured out who the Alien is, the Alien, though quite possibly an actual, highly spiritually evolved extraterrestial existing somewhere else in the Universe, was also in one way or another a higher aspect of my Self, which in turn is a manifestation of the One, otherwise known as God. You see, although God is One, which means that God absolutely cannot be separate from the Self, God is also alien because God is not a holographic fraction of the Whole like you or me or any being, terrestrial or otherwise. God IS the Whole. God is Infinity.

    This seemingly paradoxical nature of God, being both Self and Other, both immanent and transcendent, has been recognized and wrestled with by spiritual seekers throughout all of history. It is the Great Mystery of Being. It is this quality which has led me to sometimes lovingly refer to God as the Great Asymptote, toward whom we eternally journey, into whom we eternally spiral, always getting closer, but always having further to go.

    As Alex Grey, my favorite artist and someone whose wisdom has had a profound impact on my life, wrote, “The supreme Godhead is greater and beyond all consciousness and knowing. All words and concepts fail to grasp the Great Mystery of the transcendental cause of existence. Yet the unknowable God must also yearn to be known, for why else would the Infinite One reveal itself to us through the mystical experience of communion with the visionary realms? This is why the mystical experience is the most healing event in a person’s life. The unknowable reveals itself in theophanies of the divine imagination. Without a cosmos, God cannot be known and loved by creatures.”

    [A note about entheogens: I feel I must stress that the entheogenic path is not for everyone. It’s important that every individual trust his or her own inner Guidance on this matter. If one does feel called to utilize entheogens on the path to Self-realization, it is important for one to remember that it is not the plant or fungus itself that imparts wisdom, but the Divine Light within. It is also crucial for one to not become attached to or dependent upon the entheogenic experience. One on this path should practice spiritual disciplines, such as prayer and meditation, both with and without the aid of entheogens. Eventually, the ingestion of plants and fungi may become superfluous. This is true not only of entheogenic sacraments, but actually of food as well. There are yogis and saints who no longer eat at all, or eat only very minimally, instead nourishing themselves on the Divine Light within and without. A perfect example of this is Siddhartha Buddha, who survived on one hemp seed per day for three years during his ascetic phase.]

    [A note about the word God: I use the word God here as a unisex term that means both God, the masculine aspects/energies of Reality, and Goddess, the feminine aspects/energies of Reality as well as that which is beyond both, the Source of both that is in a sense neither.]

    I experienced an event in where 1 appeared to be a 3rd person but at the same time I was watching myself. What I observed was this .I was sitting in a field and this person a younger red haired girl approaches me . She walks right up to me and smiles . What is striking is she’s has an almost glowing white aura about her . She was wearing a white dress . She almost appeared angel like .
    The very next morning I say to my room mate “I ‘m in love.” I go to my work place and there she is . Our newest staff person is sitting there smiling at me as I walk inthe door . I nearly fainted .
    I’m not sure if this would be considered astral or what but it was an event out of the ordinary for sure. To see yourself in your own dream is weird enough but to have the dream materialize the next day . wow.

    Well, I can manually project in about 22 minutes so there are a million and one experiences. So I’ll tell you about the first.

    Visualization works well with projection so realizing you’re in a dream-state when your visualizations become real is a great way to project.

    Whenever I go to sleep, I imagine myself kissing a female but this time, about 12 years ago, the woman became real. I was somewhat startled so I woke up accidentally where the woman literally halted her movement and faded away. When I woke up, there was a bright rainbow around my body and this is when I realized I was still asleep, projecting.

    Movement was difficult because I was very close to my body which caused a conflict between the astral body and physical body. I tried to sit up but it was difficult. Once I did sit up, there was a young woman, who I didn’t know, sitting on the edge of my bed. When she saw me look at her, she got up quickly and started walking away. This is when fight or flight kind of kicked in so I didn’t think about moving, I just did it. I walked up to her and grabbed her wrists and asked her who she was. She was scared and she pulled out what seemed to be a piece of glass. She then cut my hand with it. I looked at my hand and it was bleeding…but not really, of course. I then woke myself up.

    When I woke up, the girl was gone but I still felt strange. I looked at my hand and it was still bleeding. I was still projecting. I then tried to wake myself up again just by feeling my body and opening my eyes. I repeated this process until I actually woke up.

    It was a very scary experience considering it was my first conscious-exit projection.

    Anyway, be well guys n gals.

    I went looking for Isis. Knowing exactly what I was doing. It began when I came home from school one afternoon or maybe it began further back in my childhood when I went to the Museum and saw Isis’ name. Some years after school I started to meditate with a candle and mirror. Talked to my nanna about it and she said that her father use to do the same thing. He was Rosicrucian and funny enough I had this huge urge to discover the Order before even talking to nan about it. So I travelled heaps to find Isis laying asleep in that Fairy Tale. Heart breaking because, well because. But then someone said to me once in the wakened day, just remember the best thing about 1996 because it was an important year. Oh yeah I find it. When we realise that we are more than body, like really start to live it, we become enlightened automatically. There is nothing to find as it is already there. Its always been there. The soul is energy and cannot be created nor destroyed. There is no other creator other than you imagination. For the soul is Eternal, it never was created, hence it can never be destroyed. You can’t have Eternity with a beginning, for there is no end, and this is what I found, Eternity. You can keep the prize I don’t want to win. I don’t need it, but someone else might. What I need is for people to find there own Eternity. Live their soul. I need people to believe that through a firm belief in themselves, they will find Eternal Life HERE on the Earth, not to look to death and a tortured human body for Eternal Life. Life is HERE. HERE. As for my in full story, for it is far too long to write here, I am going to do an audio and place it on Youtube. Rest assured that when you hear it, you might beging to question why you want the baby and most of you girls do, but know this, you will respect the new born tenfold. Isis said to me that when I convince her of Eternity, she will appear in my life, as my wife. How to turn lead to gold, my God this gold. More gold than all the world’s jewels. Problem is that she is every woman to me. Clever woman, convince women and you save the Earth. She is a Goddess of Salvation after all I guess.

    My first ever experience with being out of body happened I would say when I was about 14. When I say it happened, I mean it happened. I awoke in the middle of the night to find myself standing next to my body. I had been raised in a somewhat devout Christian household and didn’t even have the faintest inkling that such a thing was possible. I immediately knew however that I was just out of my body and not dead or anything. I remember thinking how vividly real everything seemed. I kept looking at my hands and legs to convince myself I wasn’t dreaming.. you never really seem to be conscious of your hands and legs in dream state.

    I remember feeling more alive than I had ever felt before. Even in the OOBE’s that I have had since that night I am not sure I have achieved that feeling of clarity and electric consciousness. After getting over the initial shock of being out of my body, I set off to explore. I remember walking down the stair well. I came to the front door and thought to myself I should be able to just walk through it and I did just that. I remember walking outside and it appeared to be a full moon. The light from the moon reflecting off of everything was beautiful. I remember vividly the moonlight reflecting off the white picket fence in the front yard. That point is important to the rest of my story.

    I feel like I could go on.. but I have a couple of other experiences I want to put in here and I don’t want this post to get too lengthy. So suffice it to say, that I walked up to the end of my street and took to the sky, the rest of the details from that night a little hazy.

    The next morning, I was so excited I started telling my family what had happened and of course they all thought I was crazy or just dreaming. I started to believe that maybe it had been just a dream, but it had all seemed soo real. What really threw me for a loop was when I went outside that day and realized that we didn’t have a white picket fence in the front yard, we had a beige private panel fence. This detail rectified itself about two years later when I backed my Buick over the private panel fence and my stepdad installed the exact same white picket fence from my OOBE. I can only surmise now looking back that my first experience OOB I somehow managed to travel into the future… which has happened more than once for me since then.

    Another experience I had, similar to the first, except I was trying to OOBE at this point. I pop out of my body and am standing next to my bed. I walk downstairs and my stepdad is there, but the house looks totally different. There are also other people there I had never met. The next morning after this experience I was really confused about these other people. This is one of the experiences that made me believe that these all might just be dreams. Until about 7 years later when my stepdad and mom separated and my mom and siblings moved out. My stepdad remarried and those strange people from my OOBE where his new wife and her kids.

    I am now 28 years old and have continued to have sporadic conscious OOBE experiences. Some happen when I am trying and some just happen by surprise. I have never been able to OOBE on command, I guess I still have never mastered it. I usually remember having a full experience, but for some reason the next day the details get fuzzy. I remember major events of my trips.. but not the starting or the travelling. There were three other experiences that stand out for me as experiences I should share. They have all happened relatively recently.
    First was an OOBE where I went to visit my Grandparents, both are deceased btw. I remember vividly standing in the yard outside their house. Their house in heaven is somewhat like the house they had on earth. My two grandparents and my aunt were both there to visit with me. My mother was there also, though she didn’t know she was OOBE, I think she just believed she was dreaming.

    Another OOBE I had that really made me a believer in the whole time travel possibility of OOBE… I was visiting my old house. The one I had my first OOBE in. I was walking into the back yard to look at the old tree we have there. It used to support a homemade swing set. My step dad happened to be visiting astrally as well. Again I believe he was unaware he was OOBE. Anyways, we had a nice conversation about forgiveness. I forgave him for what I perceived as mistreatment growing up and he forgave me for neglecting him since I moved away. As he left, my surroundings started to change. I literally was watching time pass. Day shifted into night and into day quickly. I watched the seasons change from summer to fall to winter over and over again. I watched the buildings change. Where there used to be just a cement slab with a basketball hoop, it became a shed and then a garage. A brick wall was build around the house. I watched trees grow and die and get cut down. It was a breathtaking experience and probably one of the most profound I have ever had while OOBE.

    The third OOBE of note, I am less sure of. I only remember small bits of it, but it was a profound experience either way. I remember being in a large room overlooking what I can only describe as the pensieve from the Harry Potter stories. There were notes all around on scrolls and pieces of paper. I was with someone and we were reviewing my life up to this point and discussing future events. I remember the person I was with seemed rather impressed with what I had planned for the future. He looked at me and said, “wow that is really something isn’t it.” I replied, “with all the lives I have lived would you expect anything less?”

    I am still wondering what I am planning for myself … lol Nothing too amazing has happened to me since that OOBE.

    I was “awakened” on Dec. 18, 2010 in a very lucid dream after taking Quinine for my RLS. I am a Savant Autistic and now I am in the Astral and Ethereal Planes 24/7. I can hear voices and have yes or no questions answered by The Other Side. I suppose I am now a Ghost Whisperer. I have several people that I Cosmically Connect with each night and I do not sleep..I am what you call a Psy Vamp. I thrive on energy and life force in the Astral and Ethereal. I only need to eat a little each day and my overall health has improved 80%. I am now in remission from RA and able to have a somewhat normal life.

    I can also Remote View to a place and time that I specify. I now know of 4 past lives that I have had and I was reborn to this world in 1958. I have noticed over the past year that I have stopped aging and I have skills that I never learned.

    Astral Travel can be a pleasant, calming experience if you are partnered with your true twin flames or soul mates. I can also look at a picture of a Cosmic Connection and ask them yes or no questions and they appear to nod back.

    I would be glad to give messages back to those who miss someone dear from The Other Side. I will also be working with the Houston area detectives and FBI helping find the Missing. Astral Travel has changed my life, brought me happiness and a great change in my career.

    I would be glad to write some articles or blogs for your project if you wish.

    I am at my grandparent’s house, sleeping comfortably. I wake up and look at the clock. It’s 1:00, and I am very thirsty. I decide to go downstairs and have a drink of water before returning to bed. I roll out of bed and begin to walk towards the door. As I approach the door, I begin to feel like I am walking through thick mud. Confused by this otherworldly feeling, I begin to panic. I am now finding it harder and harder to breathe. Scared that I may be having an asthma attack, I try to yell for help with what little breath I have left. I can’t seem to make a sound. In fact, not even my foot steps are making a sounds, and my entire world is eerily silent. I now feel my death is steadily approaching. As I collapse on the ground, I make one final lunge for the door. My body is so weak that I can barely lift my arm to the doorknob. I somehow find the strength to get my hand on the doorknob, but I cannot turn it. In fact, my attempts to do so produce no sound at all. The only sound is the rhythmic clinking of the ceiling fan above me. As I fall against the door, to weak to struggle any longer, I am sure that this will be the place that I die. Before my final breath, I see something out of the corner of my eye. It is my body, still lying comfortably bed. All emotions I am feeling are immediately replaced by fear. It is a kind of fear that is stronger than the fear of death. It is a fear that comes from seeing something that you know cannot exist, something so abnormal that it shatters your mind. I let out one more silent, blood-curdling scream. I die. After my death, I wake up right where I saw myself just moments before. It’s 1:01, and I am very thirsty.

    I didn’t learn what this experience was until many years later. It is what’s called a “failed projection.” Apparently, it’s what happens when your “projected double” doesn’t take enough “energy” with it as it leaves the physical body.

    So in conclusion, since I am so “FAIL” at having projections, I believe I should WIN the Sleepsonic “headphones in a pillow.”

    Please leave comments, as I am under the impression that it will help me win^^

    my 1st ever experience was when I was 5-ish!! I remember it sooo clear still today. Almost everynight I have some sort of weird experience, whether its quick glympse like oobe’s or astral projections, sleep paraylasis!!?? I have alot of vivid dreams, and alot of times I find I have some decent control over it!! I will also have experiences of falling out of bed and stuff!! had space travelling experiences as well!!

    just last night I had a weird experience, don’t know exactly what to call it but I was laying down on my couch and I remember getting up and stretching then sitting back down but then all of a sudden I jolted awake and I got a big sense of deja vu, like “what the heck”!! Id say the most vividest experience I had was about a month ago!? I had come home from work around 6, and soo its around 11 at night and im in bed, so at some point I remember getting out of bed, and heading down the steps but as I did I noticed I was like gliding down them, then halfway down I then began to just float and fly! I then headed into my dads room where I noticed I was actully suspended above looking down! I then say “DAD” but as I did i noticed my voice didn’t really carry, so I tried again and nothing, so I like bounce up and down on the end of the bed and I notice him rool over to the otherside of the bed, so I say “dad” again but nothing so, i then remember going into the kitchen and I grabbbed the back door handle, but as I did that when everything got unclear and I woke up, it was just such an incredible experience!! Later that morning when my dad woke up he told me that there was a point where he heard someone calling him while he was sleeping, like really weird that he mentioned that, it really almost scared me, I was in complete shock!! believe me or not, I believe it was me he was hearing cause my voice was on a different level, a different frequency quite possibly!!??

    My first experience was in a meditation class. I was doing Yoga Teacher Training and during this time we had about 180 meditations to complete. I was in a studio with about 20 other people, we were all lying down focussing on the third eye and imagining a huge bright sun just outside the third eye. We were also using the breath to exhale out the third eye which is considered like a portal. Many meditations before i had felt like a weight on my right thigh like something was holding me back,it was extremely stiff (strange). Anyhow,on this particular day my leg had relaxed and all of a sudden i felt myself go really light,weightless, and the next thing i knew I was on the ceiling facing it flat to the roof. At first i was a little panicky as i felt like i was in a coffin however when I saw the brightest whitest all encompasing light just engulfing my entire body i knew i was safe. The feeling of love was intense, and the white light that surrounded me is not of this world. When i came back to my body i was very confused and couldnt speak for a few hours, couldnt find the words to describe such an experience. I went home and a few days later tried again to do this while lying on my bed. This time my spirit or soul rolled out of my body somehow, like i was laying next to my body in the fetal position. I scared myself because i discovered i could do this at will and i quickly rolled back in. To this day I have done a lot of study on the subject. Most stories are usually from sleep or near death experiences or from anesthetic when being operated on. I tend to journey a lot in my sleep everynight too. The subject fascinates me and has given me proof of the other worlds and life after death. Thanks for listening.
