I normally sleep 6.5hrs a night. About 3 weeks ago I had a dream which seemed to last the whole length of my sleep and it felt real.
I dreamt I was in Las Vegas (I've never been there) on a holiday. I moved around from the entertainment to the shows to the casinos. Cannot remember the names and places now but remember seeing names etc. thats how I knew it was Vegas.
So, the question is. Are dreams and astral travel the same thing? It sure felt like I was there.

mika, we often astral 'they say' without realising it. I've never done it personally however, one day soon i hope to acheive that height of spiritual freedom.

It is possible that what we perceive as dreams, are in reality astral encounters.

Possible, I guess...but the few times I've achieved was quite different, yet similar to, dreaming....

In other words, I could tell it was different. Perhaps you had a Lucid dream, and you aren't used to them... One where you could feel things, smell things, remember their touch, etc. in addition to sight and sound, as well as have some degree of control of your actions in the dream......

Sorry I posted this in reply of a thread on ATS. I seen that some of you mainly stick to BTS so I posted it here for response in case none of you saw it on ATS.

Ok speaking of Astral Travel. When I was a teen oh so long ago I use to be able to fall in my sleep. But I would always wake up. I wanted to see what happens if I was to try to not wake up.

Well I went to sleep early that night and concentrated really hard on trying to produce my freefall. Usually I can control my dreams like a remote to a TV if I don't like the dream I switch channels. *usually stopping at porn channels* Anyway so I switched to my freefall dream.

Then as soon as I started my freefall I did it instead of waking up I was still feeling the sensation but not as scary to wake up. I remember getting up and seeing my body still asleep. I wasn't alarmed so I went to my door and passed my mother in the hall. I continued on to see my brother playing Ninetendo. About this time my mom knocked on my door to say good night. I remember it felt like I was having a heart attack. I could not wake up. I looked down the hall at my mom trying to wake me.

My heart must have been pounding a 1000 times a minute. Finally I rush down the hall into my room to see myself still asleep, As soon as I touched my face I woke up.

Petrified with cold sweat and hyperventilating. I have never been able to freefall again no matter how many times I have tried, I would give anything to be able to do it again to see how far I can go.

Was this the beginning of a travel that got no where. Why can't I do it again? I read somewhere that your supposed to have a guardian (someone to help guide you back) Do you think the fear of what happened blocks me from doing it again?

It would appear IMHO that since we know so little about dreaming and scientists are just now admitting that there are other dimensions, it is conceiveable that dreaming and astral travel go hand in hand.

Physicists Find That Extra Dimensions Must Be Smaller Than 0.2 Millimeter

I do believe that we had the active ability in ancient times
to do this and mankind has largely lost the power to consciously do it. It's only a scattered few who can actively do this. Let's face it, if we can only use 8-10% of our brain, the other 90 some odd percent has been shut down. It's just a matter of waking this portion up by exercising that blocked out area. I personally believe astral travel is a way of doing it.

The only way I can verify that it is, if it involves people & places I know because afterwards I can inquire about it to verify the facts given in the dream.

Otherwise it's kind of like guesswork until you receive verification later on when it may be possible for future events to transpire verifying the elements of the dream. This of course depends on the point of reference being real life & not an alternate plane of existence.
