My First Astral Projection
“Before having my first astral projection experience I had doubts weather astral projection was real. I was practicing the technique of concentration on the heart for about two and a half months about twice a day, every day. One day, when I was having my siesta, I was practicing for about an hour and while concentrating on my heartbeats I felt for a moment that I was in my physical body as well as in another body. For a very short period of time, I could see my astral body splitting from my physical body and I could see both of my bodies at the same time. I decided to leave behind my asleep physical body and get out of my bed with my astral body. While out of my body, I noticed I could float, I could fly and some of the things in my room where placed differently. Suddenly I noticed an object following me, something I couldn’t expect to see there and realized intuitively that it was placed for my own learning. I went out of my room investigating how it is to be in this other dimension. At some point, I started having intense emotions and this ended my experience by returning immediately to my physical body. For the first time in my life, I was standing in my bedroom in another dimension! For the first time I experienced and verified that I am not just the physical body, that I am not alone, that I can exist in other dimensions as well! The experience has definitely changed my life!” Lilia
Experiencing Another Dimension
” I have been curious about other dimensions since I can remember, probably due to some experiences I had as a child. But it was only after I started studying serious esotericism that I learned the importance of having our own conscious experiences, and then the Astral turned to be more than a curiosity to me. In an evening a few years ago, I laid down on my bed, face up, and I decided to focus my attention on the process of sleep as a way to go consciously into the Astral plane. I was not really sleepy, but after a short relaxation technique, sleep came gradually. To relax, I focused on my breathing and checked every part of my physical body in order to relax the muscles. I kept concentrating on my breathing after finishing the relaxation, and I soon noticed my heartbeats were stronger and stronger, but the beat rate was reducing. I knew that was a good sign, once it meant my concentration was improving, and that enabled me to notice my heart more clearly. Along with that, I noticed the sound of my pineal gland. The pineal gland is in part responsible for the process of sleep, as it produces serotonin, the sleep hormone. The sound became stronger and stronger. The more I focused my attention on the process of sleep, the stronger and more clear my heartbeats and the sound of my pineal gland became.
After a few minutes in that stage, I noticed I could shift the focus of my attention between the physical body and an energetic body (probably the Astral one) occupying the same space. Also, parts of my Astral body started to move out of the physical body; thus I perceived arms and legs slowly floating above their physical counterparts. At that point, I decided to move very slowly in order to leave my physical body using the Astral one. I gave all my attention to every movement, as if I had all the time in the world, because I knew if I moved any part of my physical body by mistake, I would lose the momentum and then I would need to go back to the beginning of the practice.
I was successful in the transition into the energetic plane and I knew it because I saw myself floating in the bedroom. The sensation of floating is always so awesome and, although it was not the first time I saw myself floating, I enjoyed it a lot. I then moved myself a bit higher in the room and a bit farther from my bed. While I did that, I noticed that the flight was slower than normal and I felt my body a bit heavier than it usually fells in the Astral plane. It was only then that I remembered to check if my physical body was still in bed. I turned to check my physical body and it was not there! I was probably experiencing the fourth dimension, the Vital or Ethereal plane. It was so amazing to realize that I could be carrying my physical body with my in the energetic dimension, that a strong emotion took me over and I lost the focus of my attention… and woke up in bed.
The techniques I learned from the esoteric group really work. All we need is concentration and practice, lots of practice. Experiencing the unknown by ourselves is simply the best thing that can ever happen, because it totally changes our perspective in life.” Daniel
Waking Up in My Dream
“For about a week, I was trying the technique to become conscious and wake up from my dreams. One night as I was dreaming unconsciously, I realized that I was dreaming and I remembered to try the technique I was taught in order to verify and make sure I was in the astral dimension. I took a small jump in the air and I noticed I was floating. Realizing that I was conscious in another dimension, I started flying around, enjoying the freedom I had in that dimension and then I decided to visit a place out of Earth. While I was conscious in the astral plane, I visualized the place I wanted to go and all of sudden I found myself standing there! It was such an amazing experience!” Lilia
Escorted in the Astral to an Extraterrestrial Civilization
“I had been praying for a while to have an opportunity to see how extraterrestrials live on their own worlds as a way to find inspiration to change myself. One night in the astral, I found myself being taken through space, escorted by a female divine being, to another planet. It appeared like some kind of gas giant planet like Neptune or Saturn in that it was mostly one airy color. We descended to a hard flat surface where I couldn’t see well enough to make out any kind of forms. I only felt that there were beings and signs of civilization around me. Unfortunately, as soon as I felt these beings, which reminded me of very innocent children, a fierce tiger lept out of me. This tiger felt like a very powerful ego that I still struggle with. Before that tiger could do any damage, I was snatched up by the back of my neck by this divine being and taken back out into space where she sternly reprimanded me for having this ego.
From this experience, I understood very clearly why I can not be around extraterrestrials or even more spiritually-awakened humans. The purity within them has a strange way of pulling my nastier egos out to the surface. Until I become more pure myself, they will continue to leave me behind in the mud of mundane life.
On another occasion in a dream, I met a group of extraterrestrials that gave me a sequence of numbers to repeat mentally. I did so and started to feel the sensations typical of astral projection. Having been not so experienced with astral projection though, some fear stopped me from going any further…pity. Those beings looked very similar to the ones seen in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6555Hr3Mj8&feature=related). They looked and felt very nice and wise; not in the evil, grotesque ways they are often depicted in UFO subculture.” Michael
