About half way through I felt a sensation that I was slowly spinning around. After that I experienced a rocking sensation, which felt like my body was rocking from side to side. At this stage my body temperature skyrocketed and I felt really hot, like I was burning.
Nothing else happened after that, I kept trying to deepen the state I was in but I couldn't do it. My heart was beating too fast because of the excitement but it was really distracting me.
How can I progress to the next step of maybe leaving my body? The increased heart rate makes my breathing get out of control and I gave up in the end. I'll try it again tonight, but any tips would really be appreciated
We can meet out non-physical helper. These are known by many names: Guides, Mentors, Guardian Angels, Protectors, or simply Helpers.
They are enlightened beings that live in the Astral dimension, but accompany us with the goal of helping us.
In general, the great majority of people today are not able to perceive the presence of these beings, but during Astral Projection, you can see them and even hold a discussion with them.
Some of the most common signs of impending astral projection include physical paralysis, tingling or vibrating sensations, buzzing or roaring sounds and sexual arousal. As projection becomes imminent, one may also feel one's limbs or entire being beginning to grow very light or "lift" up.
Along with those waves of energy, I experienced another common sensation just prior to astral projection: some may call it sexual arousal, though I think a better term would be "energetic ecstasy." It's similar to the feeling of an orgasm as it builds, but it is suffused throughout your entire being: your body, your aura, your heart, your mind: everything you consider "you" and then some. This ecstatic energy courses through you in waves and builds until you lift out of the body.
The French call orgasm a "little death." I think this is apt, because at the moment of climax, we seem to expand and merge with All That Is. Perhaps the sexual arousal that often precedes astral projection is the feeling of merging with a part of ourselves that is far more expansive and free than the physical.

Haha, yeah lots of interesting things happen when meditating and Astral projecting and lucid dreams. It's natural.
But your experience is interesting... not that I'm a sicko or anything!
