I Met My Spirit Guide During Astral Travel


First of all I would like to start off by saying how thrilled I am that I came across this site because, and I know I speak for everyone who is using this site at present, it helps us realize that we aren't going insane. People are actually having the same experiences as me and that is wonderful.

I've always felt different. But over the years I've kind of taught myself to embrace this as a positive attribute rather than thinking I'm a freak. I can read peoples emotions, and know instantly if someone is lying to me. It's strange, it's like some telepathic voice in my head is saying "he is lying. This is what really happened". Etc etc.

Anyway, over the years I have had quite a few spiritual experiences, its the one that occurred the other night which has prompted me into doing something about it and would be grateful for any advice from anyone at all who can let me know what it means.

I genuinely believe that it was a spiritual experience and that I was guided through it by what I can only describe as a spirit guide.

Basically I was very ill for 4 days. Felt I was dying it was that bad. This is when I believe the spirits zoned in on me as the last time I was at my lowest ebb they did the same then too but not to the same extent as this time. Anyway I finally got better and literally felt the most positive vibe I have ever felt in all of my life, prioritized things in my life etc etc. Maybe I had experienced a spiritual awakening?

That night when I went to bed and was in the semi conscious state of sleep and awake I started seeing images what I can only describe as a kaleidoscope, I allowed myself to focus on them, and can remember half opening one eye to enable the image to form into a shape I recognized It was at this point that I literally felt myself leaving my body. The moment I registered this was happening and told myself it was happening I felt myself climb back into myself. It was bizarre.

Anyway I decided to get myself back into the trance like state I felt like I was in moments earlier. Got the images back. Formed the shapes etc, which at first were hundreds and hundreds of hands, beckoning me to them, then it happened again. I didn't think about it, I just went with it. Eventually I was floating but not in my bedroom, I wasn't looking down on myself or anything like that I was just floating. To be honest I felt like I was in a lovely forest. It was very peaceful.

I then felt a presence beside me who basically made me realize I was having a spiritual experience. She was called margaret and she was at my side at all times as I was moving through the air. It was amazing. I was ducking and diving, literally flying through the air, I was telepathically communicating with margaret, I asked her if I was in spirit world and she said "yes" in the most surreal voice imaginable.

To cut a very long story short, I could see images that eventually became people and they were waving at me and saying "over here, over here, over here", over and over again, their voices were angelic. I wasn't afraid. I seen many people, 4 of which were holding each other dancing in a circle, waving at me. I felt so warm inside. Then I was flying over rows and rows of soldiers, all doing the same motion, as if they were boxing, I then headed to what looked like a tree, but which eventually changed shape and was loads of faceless men beckoning me to them. The faces slowly began to form, I remember desperately trying to see a face which I recognized (at this point I was on my own. I have no clue where "margaret" went. But I didn't feel afraid).

Anyway as I was flying towards these people something caught my eye to my right. It was of two really large figures, I felt myself getting drawn more towards them which concerned me a bit. I wasn't sure who they were or whether they were good or bad so somehow managed to stop myself going further, and then I eventually woke up. I was literally staring at the ceiling, feeling so empowered, it was amazing.

I am now in the "what should I do now" stage. I'm wondering if this is my calling now. Part of me is terrified about going to bed as I am a little bit afraid of the unknown, and part of me is wanting to seek out developmental classes to help develop this gift that I'm sure I have. I would be very interested in seeing what people think about this.

So is astral projection real or hallucination? For astral projection to be real you have to go out of body and like guess something and wake up to see if it there's in real life.

Have you had any more experiences with your spirit guide? If so, please publish them if you haven't already. Thank you!

Hey I've been reading a book on astral projection and it's nothing to be scared of. Get the book Astral Travel for Beginners by Richard Webster and you'll soon understand everything and how to control the projecting. I'm 16 years old and I'm just starting my training for this. Granted I haven't been able to yet but I almost acheived it, if I handn't spun at the last second ^-^' so good luck and may your adventure be fun.

It's wonderful you all have experienced these things. I am aware of astral projection. I think this is why I keep having acute episodes. I have yet to leave my body but I am so close. A few nights I felt myself about to leave my body but I can't seem to get up all the way. Is it's because I'm a little afraid. One time I was in the process of astral projection but I noticed a red smokey face covered with a hood blocking me from leaving. Also, just last night I was in the process of astral projection and I noticed thes black smokey figures hoovering over my body and I can hear these munching sounds.

Your story is very cool. I've had astral travel experiences since I was a kid and I am actually really scared of it and try not to. Usually I see or hear my spirit guide, Frank. I wish I could be as brave as you but it just freaks me out when it is starting because I feel tingling and I hear a loud popping sound and I usually feel like I can't breathe. Most of the time I fight really hard to wake myself back up because it scares me!

Ive had numerous apon numerous apon numerous encounters,experiences, and things... For about seven years now. I'm FED up with fear holding me back from exploring astral projection... Trust your instincts... Once your mind has opened to these things (voices talking, oout of body stuff ect)...i say relax yourself conciously... Your mind will tell you wither its bad,evil,good,humerous...go with the flow. If its bad GET OUT. Youll know, when you know... (srry random here there stuff)...i want to meet my spirit guide, and I think the best way for me personally is through astral projection.

Projection comes soo easy to me its not even funny. I WILL conqure this fear, I have done it benfore... Some spirits can be humerous... This one spirit wasplaying a lil drum than grabbed my big toe thinking it was funny... Ithink sometimes they just want a person from the real realm to just talk to... I met this one lady spirit that just chattered her head off! And age height personality, differ power levels, time age they came from... Somehow you just Know it with each spirit that talks to you. When you open your mind... Your mind can sense and read things that in real life youd be hard to guess. I had one old powerful spirit ask to come in my body. I said no...

.the strangest thing though... I heard this voice... It was 300 differ voices in the background. And three bolder ontop the o ther voices. One was male,female,nuetral...but it was one being... And as weird as it sounds... The best wa to describe it was Alienish... And I'm not one to beilive in aliens...

I once had a soul mate come to my room, I felt her hand grab mine and pull me out of my body. The feeling of euphoria was like the feeling of love times 1000. Amazing, left me crying like a baby when I came back, Enjoyed your story.

hi there!
I had just experienced astral travel last night that is why I searched for this site and read your posts.
Last night wasn't the first time I experienced it though. The first time I had it (that was more than ten years ago), I was so scared. I always felt that there is a force on my stomach that is trying to pull me somewhere. I was wide awake but I know I can fly off somewhere. But you see, I don't have any conscious effort to go astral travelling, my spirit just fly off by itself at any time it wants to. But I can open my eyes, move my body (physically), and even pray during my travel. Last night, my travel took me inside the body of a girl tied up in chains. She was in a dark room. I can feel her sadness. I actually think we were the same person or we are sharing the same body. But I didn't stay long in that body because I don't want to "die" today, I want to go back to my present body.
I was afraid during my first travel because I can sense bad forces around. What I know is that you have to avoid "the evil eye".
I know I can easily have OBE but I stopped practising when I joined in a religious organization because they are discouraging these practices.
I also have other "gifts" other than this but I can not entertain nor practise them at this time.
During my travels, I have not met any spirit guide though.
Just sharing...

i haven't had an experience of going out of my body but I hear a voice in my head all the time. I have never been scared of it but recently I have started to wonder if he is my spirit guide. He tells me his name is jebrigski and he kind of tells me if something is dangerous or wot would be the best way of doing something and hes always right.
I don't think I'm mad and he doesn't tell me to do bad stuff...
Just thought id say...

Hi There. KNow that it is completely normal to feel fear. Notice how the fear dissipates once you have bridged the gap to the other world tho? The most frightenig part is the beginning where the soul separates from the body. It is normal to have this when you were ill as your soul only wants to feel free and unencumbered by a sick body. Spirit guides will come and help when you are ill and it can be frightening but you need to let go of the fear and you will be astounded by what happens. I have had out of body experiences since I was 17. When I got very ill, is when it all began. I had many visits with my spirit animals, which were eagles during this time. It happened so much it began to scare me. I felt too young, or I was left feeling I missed the message. They will not come if you are afraid. I am now 29 and am learning to just go with it. Let go. Nothing can hurt you here, although you must remember that this is a place in time where many many different energies are collectivly gathering. Consider it a blessing, ask for guidance and protection. I think that the two beings you saw many have been powerful powerful guides whose presence felt scary due to how big their message might have been for you. Ask them to appear in a way that is comforting and not scary. Eagles talking to me, with their beaks moving really made the whole thing easy, but I also recognized the spiritual responsibilty in heeding their messages to me. You are utilizing your spiritual muscles! Don't turn back now. Your soul wants to go back, that is why your heart is wanting it. The soul knows. If something feels menacing, they will quickly dissipate when they recognize that you are of GOd. All the best on your journeys!

Hi Kaleidoscope,

Fear is a basic emotion which is designed to preserve us in certain situations. If it feels risky... It is. Fear acts as a precursor to logical solution. Trust your instincts here... It is not a good idea.

hi there and thanks for the comments... I wouldn't say that it felt like heaven or I guess what I think heaven would feel like... It was like a lovely forest, I was ducking and diving amongst the trees... It was beautiful... The people weren't angels, they were just regular people, like you or i...

I didn't actually get a good look at margaret... I could just feel her presence at my side, flying with me... And could see a faint outline if I turned my head to the right... I felt so safe with her... You know as if I was in awe of her... Like a pupil is towards a really nice teacher... That's how it felt I guess...

As for experiencing another episode... I'm afraid to say no I haven't... Part of me you see is a little afraid of the unknown, I felt like I could very easily have gone back there a few nights ago, my eyes were closed but started going crazy... Like side to side and round and round... Freaked me out a bit as they felt out of control... I could hear hundreds and hundreds of voices all mumbling... I remember saying in my mind please don't make me go there tonight, I'm afraid... Then eventually my eyes went back to normal closed state and the voices faded away then disappeared... I really wish I wasn't so afraid as in my heart I want to go back there, but am frightened I can't get back to this world... I hope this makes sense 😨

I have read your story and that is so amazing. However you do not mention did it feel like you were in heaven or were the people you encountered angels. What did margaret look like? What did you feel about her... And have you experienced another episode since that night.
