Things to watch out for?
My best advice would be to trust your instincts, if you are feeling uncomfortable at any point bail out. I have only once had an issue returning to my
body, but after several minutes of asserting my will, I was able to return. I have heard urban myths (my friends, friends say..) but never seen
anything to confirm the idea. I am also told that the areas around the pentagon, area 51 and other secret utilities are well protected by what many
would term demons. I have not personally tried to view these areas.
Things to see?
Have a look at anything and everything. Some people I know love to travel among the stars, some even claim to have encountered alien ships there. I
have always been more earthbound, but love the sensation of travelling so rapidly. The pyramids in Egypt are spectactular, though I imagine that many
spiritual and/or ancient places are.
Going to a friends house (get their permission to try first) can also be fun, a lot of people try this to prove to others that travel is indeed
Also study up on the akashic records, I don't know many people who have managed to access them - I have not been able to achieve it, but it would the
epitome of the astral experience for me.
You might also want to look at remote viewing - in my experience it is very similar to astral travel, though I seem to exist in two places at the same
time and am aware of both. This is much more difficult than astral for me and something I would love to have more control over.
I don't know if ghosts inhabit the astral realm, actually I don't know if I believe in ghosts as the spirits of the dead - I am sure that astral
entities are often percieved as being ghosts. I once freaked a lady out when I moved near her and I think that she thought I was a ghost, but do not
know her to confirm this experience.
Most people that are able to astral travel do have other talents, the abilities could be a sign of higher spiritual learning. I have seen several
'ghosts' and shadow people. I occasionally have insights about people or about the future, but nothing that I would attribute to any psychic power.
I think that those abilities may be 'higher' or else natural talents, much like your travel seems to be. Perhaps we need a natural inclination for
these talents, one that can be developed with practice.
