I really enjoy this podcast. I can't recall how I found interest in this odd subject, but I know it started about 5 years ago and now I'm a freshman
in college and have sort-of done it once.
I've looked up techniques on several webpages and it all sounds basically like self hypnosis.
Lay down, put yourself in deep relaxation, yet remain aware. Even if you don't end up in an "astral" domain, and really just reach a deeper part of
your own mind and are able to explore it... that's pretty cool. I have yet to have a "complete" experience, so my apologies but I cautiously remain
It's an odd thing... something I want to be true, but so bluntly sounds untrue. I am trying really hard though to make it happen, haha...
after listening to this podcast I have found that it seems a little easier. I can recall the instructions a bit more easily than trying to remember
what I read on a webpage, similar to trying to remember text for an exam.
I think I just learn better with spoken word.
Well... to my point.
I try each night after I go to bed, but I always end up falling asleep. I have separated from my body (I think) twice, and that was when I've woken
up, but lay in bed.
The first time, I was dreaming and floating in an empty room w/ a rock in it (yes, rather odd, and perhaps that is what caught my attention), I
realized, hey I'm asleep... what a perfect time to try and project.
I just ended up drifting to the rock until my feet hit the rock and my astral body I suppose just got dumped out after my dreamy body hit it. All I
know for sure is that I felt and heard vibrations (similar to when you get hit in the head lol) and immediately realized "I'M DOIN' IT!"
Unfortunately, that woke me up.
The next time was a couple days ago. I had woken up, fallen back asleep and was dreaming. I was standing on a train, pretty much the same image you
get when you think of an old western train robbery movie... I have no clue why... but anyway... I realized I was dreaming yet again and wanted to try
the jump technique. Took me a minute, but I was able to jump... and I felt this odd floating sensation and sort of like... my muscles really wanted to
move but they didn't... the second I jumped off my train, it was like I woke up but I was still asleep, I was just... hovering over my body I
all excited, I wanted to move around... but didn't know how. I franticly thought, oh yeah... "will myself" to the door.
It didn't work.. and I slowly drifted backwards til’ my "head" bumped into the wall and I woke up.
What I thought was coolest was that I can't really move a couple seconds after I project.
Well... that's why I'm writing this. I can seem to make clumsy attempts at this, but don't know how to control myself or move in the astral world,
if that is what I achieved. Secondly, I seem to only be doing this after I'm in a dream... and I don't really see the real astral plane as I've
heard it described.
So... pointers on what I'm missing out on would be great. It's been over a month I think since the last update.
It's okay that you're busy, but this is getting really interesting as I seem to be almost getting there... I'm anxious for more
Hope this wasn't rambling for too long.
