Hey guys and girls..I have been trying to perfect my concious astral projection for many years, since i was a child actually i started to take an interest in the spiritual astral body and its capabilities if you will. I have succeded a few times but through different methods some wilingly and others without trying. Anyway ill get back to that, lately well for the last year or so have have been doing alot of lucid dreaming. As those of you who do it are aware it is a very soulful ,fun, exciting different way to spend your evenings asleep. lately though i fell that when im lucid in my dreams it is feeling more and more like when im actually out of my body like astral travelling. You know its a bit tricky to explain, its like when you are lucid in your dream you know you are dreaming and you are lucid but when you are in and "astral" state if you wanna calll it that you have a totally different perception of things, and a feeling of weightlessness kind of. Well the other morning i went to sleep and shortly after awoke in what seemed to be a temple of sorts somewhere in asia in a hall which was surounded by beds which were empty . I swear it i woke up lying on my back on this bed and opened my eyes and the first thing i thought was...hang on man this doesnt seem to be like a lucid dream , you know it was real, yet i didnt purposely try to asral project etc..So i woke up and could see a window without glass , just the frame the wall made of brick kind of dark . I could tell by the light and the sky outside it was early morning, that was when i looked to my sides and noticed the rows of empty beds. if anyone has ever done the camino de santiago or been to some kind of temple where monks live its like those kind of sleeping quaters. I sat up and new what was going on and thought man this is amazing. At the end of the hall were the beds were was a exit into a massive courtyard of some kind were i saw the backs of monks or im not sure what chanting and meditating, at which point i i shot back through the time loop or mirror world or dream. Now this is just a little something lately i have been having many many different dreams real experiences if you will, i have been places i have been travelling man and its getting cool, but this thread is not about normal dreams so please dont post your normal dreams or whatever ..this is about lucidity and whether it can be so strong that it can feel like you are in an "Astral state" if you know what i mean the other day i was in this lucid astral state and i have been reaching further and further limits within my mind and this universe. It is my wish to project to other planets and temples etc...but i am not naive and i know this takes years or possibly i am not even capable of this. Anyway gents lets hear what kind of experiences you have been through in these aspects, i find this a cool subject and dont meet alot of people who are into it like myself. Thanks chaps

Dreams are sometimes so strong that you have the feeling of experiencing it in real time mistaking it for astral projection. Generally dreams bring out what is in your mind, so it seems you want to visit the temple or you had visited a temple earlier and your mind is just recollecting it.

When I was going to college about 10 years ago I became very interested in the subject. During that time I guess I was just trying to find some meaning behind everything. Exploring all outlets if you will. I have a book on astral projection that I picked up at an occult store during that time. Basically gives you a step by step account of how to do it. I read it and tried it and it did work. It scared the hell out of me. The one and only time that I did it I had left my body and could see myself lying in bed and as I looked around my bedroom I realized that I had no control of where I was going and I was floating towards my closet and got very scared and woke up. I have no "proof" that it was astral projection but I know the difference between being lucid in my dreams and astral projection. Back to the book though. I guess I picked it up to try to understand the topic. I now look at it as something that should not be taken lightly. I have looked at the book and realize that there are many rituals that you are doing to make this happen. That is the part that worries me. I do believe in the supernatural but I also believe that you should have respect for what you are attempting. I do not understand it completely and could not control it when it happened therefore I will not tamper with it again.
As far as lucid dreaming goes. I have read the books in which colleges did tests on subjects that were lucid to prove that they were able to be awake in their dreams. Again I have experienced this first hand but do not completely understand it. Very interesting topic though and I wish that there was more mainstream research on the subject.

Some "experts" on astral projection, like Robert Bruce insist that you are actually having a projection when you are flying in a dream.

My own theory is that all lucid dreams take place in the astral realm, but your subconcious is manifesting a template reality from all your memories and unconcious thoughts.

Your experience seems a little like the Alice and Wonderland effect:

Also, heres an awesome technique I love to use to get out of body during a lucid dream:

I have also had astral projections and lucid dreams. In the early seventies, after having joined the Rosicrucians and taken mind control - I gained somewhat more control of the mechanism whereby the experiences are registered on the waking awareness.

In any event, the explanation that the dreams are so vivid that they seem real is not an adequate explanation - I have been seen by others - scaring them because they thought they had seen a ghost and were concerned that I had died - and interacted with objects while in my dreams - leaving the physical plane changed.

My experience has been that I can change my level of vibration and can either move through a wall if at a high vibration - and effect the physical when I have lowered my vibrations sufficiently.

My Masters thesis was on the Psychic in Dreams - dreams have always been a major interest of mine and I have experienced patterns of prophetic dreams.

Since the period of time leading up to 2012 is so significant and I believe that we can use all of the information that we can get about what is coming and the timing of it - I would like to be in contact with others who "dream true" and have true visions.
