I have been having OOBE's for the last 17 years and so it is somewhat second nature to me now.
About a week ago, I had my first experience where I actually looked at myself in a mirror during an OOBE. Before doing so, however, I was consciously
aware that it may not be a good thing to do. I decided to take a look anyway and was quite amused that I could see my feet and legs up to about
halfway up my thighs, and the rest of my body just wasn't there! I'm not sure why I was able to see any body parts at all, but I guess when a
person is in the astral plane, that everything, including furniture and inanimate objects part of the astral plane too, including the mirror, so it
wasn't a real physical mirror that I was looking into, it was the 'etheric' mirror in the astral plane.
From my own perspective, the experience opened up a totally new perspective for me, because I'd always assumed that my astral body was observing our
physical reality. This experience could indicate that my astral body is part of a astral plane which is 'like' our physical reality, sort of a
'mirror or reflection' of reality, if you excuse the pun.
HOWEVER, if that theory is wrong, and it WAS an actual physical mirror, that means it must be my astral self that was able to 'perceive' part of my
reflection in the mirror.
Confusing, I know, but I would love to hear someone elses experience with mirrors!!
