I have had two astral projection experiences. Once when I was 16 years old, and another one last week. The first time it happened, I was laughing with a group of friends. Suddenly everything in the room became very glassy and shiny. I felt like I was in another dimension. Soon I could not see out of the side of my eyes. I developed tunnel vision.
Shortly after that I was in the corner of the room at the ceiling, looking down at my body. I went into the stairway and could see the stairs we had climbed. I was very frightened. I prayed to get back into my body immediately because I thought I was dying. When I prayed, I immediately flew back to my body and went back in with a thud. I was shifting in and out for a few minutes, but I stayed in my body.
The second time was last week. I fell asleep on the weekend at about 3 a.m. I was reading. When I fell asleep suddenly I was at the ocean looking over the horizon. I could feel the ocean spray and I could see everything in great detail. It felt like I was floating and was truly present at the beach. I could see the sun coming up on the horizon. It was early dawn. It was still sort of dark. It was vivid and unbelievably real. My body was sleeping, but I was wide awake. I knew that my body was sleeping so I had no fear. I really enjoyed the experience tremendously. I hope to be able to do more of this in the future and want to practice at it.
I know that we have a body separate from our physical body from these two experiences. I know that when we pass on we leave and can see everything around us. I have experienced this personally. The only thing I have not done is take the ultimate step to go into the other dimension but I have no doubt that it is there. Thanks for letting me share with you.
