you definitely had an astral projection. I have had over 300 astral projection and can almost induce them at will through meditation. I meditate
myself into sleep paralysis and when my body is paralyzed my astral body is free to exit.
This is exactly what happened to you. Sleep paralysis is not an attack. The reason it happens when your laying on your back most of the time is
because both hemispheres of your brain are more balanced than when laying on your side.
98% of the time I astral project, I am laying on my back. The first time i had an astral projection it felt just like you described, except i was
trying to do it on purpose and it only lasted 3 seconds.
Basically what is happening is your physical body is super tired. You lay down to go to sleep and your body is so tired and relaxed you lose
awareness of it. Your consciousness starts to connect to your electromagnetic astral body while you lose complete control of your physical body.
This happens every night when you go to sleep, you are just conscious of it happening during an OBE. Being fully conscious while your physical body
is disconnected is sleep paralysis, this is the state of mind you need to have an OBE. The difference is moving your mind. You don't quite move
like you do in the physical, you need to make a mental motion like you did, like flying out without moving your limbs. I usually try to levitate 4 of
5 feet away from my body before trying to move my limbs, this is so i don't move my physical limbs and snap out of the trance.
Now that you know the feeling it should be a lot easier to astral project out of the sleep paralysis state for you. Remember don't be scared, it is
not an attack, it is the literal expansion of your own mind and you being fully conscious of it happening.
And yes what you experienced was a dimensional shift. I always try to talk to the people in the other realms and find out where I am, if i am on
earth, if they know of earth, what kind of spiritual knowledge do they posses, anything that comes to mind.
Congrats on your first astral projection, stick with it, it is a very fun road, much better than being unconscious while you sleep, its like having
two lives, one in physical, one in the mental.
