Last night was the closest I believe I've ever gotten to astral projection, and I'd just want to know whether or not what I experienced was that, or
just late-night unclarity of mind. It didn't seem difficult to do, contrary to the intricate techniques people put out here.
I was in my bed, on my back with my hands at my sides. I didn't let my body move, and allowed it to become heavy and numb. I imagined my thoughts as
a large, vibrating orange spot in my mind and imagined the spot spreading out to the rest of my body and limbs. Then I felt peaceful and quiet, and
even heavier. Since I had my eyes closed, I focused on the images one usually sees before falling asleep, and cleared my mind further. i felt
concentrated and a feeling of oneness.
In a few minutes, my immediate environment felt muffled and the blackness around me felt warm and empty. My bed began moving in small, smooth jerks
back and forth and later diagonally from top right to bottom left and back again.
I accidentally focused on my breathing and it became heavy and interfered with the jerky vibrations, so I tried breathing through my mouth and it as a
whole lot more calmer and didn't make my chest rise as much.
What happened next isn't too easy to describe so excuse my brevity. I lost feeling of my physical body. I didn't have a feel of where my arms and
legs were, and I didn't feel as if my arms were still at my sides, and what scared me the most was the feeling of my spine arching out and my head
being at the level of my back. I lost focus of what position I was lying in. Soon after, I began breathing in…one, long inhale which seemed to last
several minutes. The air was cold and didn't feel very much like the warm air in my room.
I knew I could have a projection now if I wanted to, but I was afraid of opening my eyes, and didn't know how to do it. If I opened my eyes, would
the feelings go away?
At that moment, I felt like my body was pulling into two, peeling like a sticker. I left this go on for a few minutes, and suddenly realized I felt as
if I was suspended in air, and could be anywhere from lying numb in my bed to floating in the middle of my room, near the ceiling.
This scared me, and I opened my eyes. My body felt dry, and it took me a moment to calm down and realize I was in my physical body. For a few more
seconds, I felt like a spring trying to find equilibrium.
I think the strangest moment was the feeling of losing control of the shape of my body, the physical shape, and I would be happy to travel once I gain
confidence of my new amorphous body and be able to lose the fear. I felt like I could drown in the air, like I was air.
Is this astral projection that I experienced? And how do I open my eyes and fully leave my body? Do I just need to practice further?
