I can "Astral Project" every night along with having SP.
I have a neurological disorder do to a spinal cord defect I was born with, and due to several operations on my spinal cord, and some damage to the frontal lobe from all the anesthesia of 100 and some operations adding up over time.
Ever since I was a baby I had sleep paralysis and lucid dreams.
I feel that these are simple trickery of the mind , some people can experience this once in a blue moon then people like me who have neurological problems have it more often which leads me to believe that it all points to the brain and a "defect" or a "blip" in the brain waves during sleep, chemicals, and all that other good sleep stuff.
I can understand why people really feel as if they are Astral Projecting, Being Abducted, or basic travel.
It's one of the most real things I've ever felt.(I can feel, smell, and taste things in my dreams, my chronic pain transfers into my dreams, I feel this happens because I was born with over senses, my sense of smell, sight, and hearing and feeling are much stronger due to the average person)
But my understanding of Neuro science and the human body keeps me from believing it is anything other then the great powers of the subconscious mind.
But just because I FEEL that way does not mean I am right.
I think many things are possible.
I do not look down on, or judge others by their opinions about this, or try to over state my point or change their minds.
Their opinions are part of their beliefs and their beliefs are part of their hearts, they all belong to them and I have no right man handle them just because I feel differently and want to be seen as the right one.

Gypsk -- The great thing about the astral, is that you can change anything or situation that you want! Just go to another place, or "not breathe" in your case. Very nice dream, but you know that you can go back to the astral at anytime. Why not go, especially since it was so special for you? Just a thought.

Jeffwm -- Ahh.. Altlantis. One of my favorites, I do believe I have had a past life there. Isn't it funny how we are all having dreams about reptile type creatures?? Weird. I must say I love stange and unusal things. Maybe you were having a dream about a past life??? Hummm...something to think about!
Idyserenity -- I love the peaceful dreams, I remember those the most! I remember a recurring dream that I always used to have. It was so peaceful...
I was in Ancient Egypt and I could feel that I was such a spritiual being. It felt so good, I was dressed in the most beautiful linens and my eyes were painted. I remember walking out of the pyramid and looking out at the sun rising over the sand. I was really high in the temple and could look down and see lots of stairs. I looked at the sun and raised my hands up to the sky, doing a sun ritual. It was so wonderful and beautiful and it is so hard to describe the 'feeling' that I felt.
BUT as I went back inside the temple someone hit me over the head with a rock...all I remember is seeing my blood on the floor and the feet of the person who killed me. (In my dream I know who it was)
I have had that dream since I was a child, and my mom said since I was little I have always talked about Egypt. I always wanted to buy scarves and dress up as a Priestess.... I think it was a past life that ended up badly. But I still love the dream even though the ending sucks...
