Lately, I have been trying to expand my capacity for Astral Projection. I learned to do it as a natural byproduct of various parasomniac episodes
(some very horrifying stuff). To aid in my progression, and to document my trial/error attempts and observations, I created
Yesterday afternoon, I attempted to Astral Project again. The attempt failed, but I learned a lot from it. I took my nap in preparation for the waking
stage. When I wake up mid-nap, and try to go back to sleep, I notice that it is prime time for sleep paralysis, and therefore a perfect window to
project. I had to get out of bed to help my wife with something, so I think that messed up my attempt.
Anyways, so I lay back down, lay still, and start focusing on letting my body fall into paralysis. I did this for about 45 minutes with no success,
but I did feel the VIBRATION trying to creep in. I just couldn't seem to amplify it into full paralysis. So I tried something else....
This is where the Third Eye comes into play. I began to focus my attention on my Third Eye region, just between and slightly above my eyebrows. I
began to focus on stimulating it, as though mild pressure were being applied. After about 5-10 minutes of doing this, I began to feel a
tingling/electric sensation bloom out from my Third Eye region of the forehead and spread across my eyebrows. As I continued to focus, the sensation
began to spread up to my scalp, and onto what is commonly called the 'crown chakra'. I had never experienced this before, nevertheless, I allowed it
to continue. It began to move down the back of my neck, across my shoulders into my arms and hands, then down my spine and into my legs. This was a
very pleasant sensation, and while this was occurring, I saw some mild but beautifully colored close-eyed hallucinations. I wanted to continue, but
had to get up, as I only allotted an hour out of my day to do this.
So basically, I would like to know what I was experiencing. Was my Third Eye beginning to open? If so, how can I continue to the process?
For the purpose of disclosure: I do not practice meditation, I do not recite mantras, I do not practice balancing or manipulating chakras, and I do
not practice meditation in the sense of emptying/silencing the mind. Instead, I either pray and/or I contemplate Bible scriptures. I only mention that
bit because I am not interested in the individualized practices used to accomplish Astral Projection and Third Eye stimulation. My interest is in
learning the common mechanics behind the variable processes.
Basically, I'm asking how to fry a steak, not what you use to season/marinate it...but feel free to share all of it. I'm not here to determine what
is right or wrong.
