I've been interested in learning more about myself spiritually. I've been attempting Astral projection and each time I get near the vibrational part something goes wrong and I snap out of it.
So I've been wanting to get a few books on projecting but I'm not sure how to tell my parents about it. I think that one of them would understand and I think the other would think I'm completely insane. I also have a question on what is your spiritual guide? And how do you talk to them or get it touch with them? Because it sounds like something that might help me.
Today I tried projecting while holding a amethyst, I thought that this would help because they are supposed to help you out while projecting. I got really close but as soon I felt a little bit of the sensations and my heart started going a million miles per hour, I tried to focus on visualizing grabbing and climbing the rope above me but it all went away after a minute or so and I'm not sure why. I've also tried out the rolling method but I had a hard time visualizing it so I kept with the rope method.
The one last thing that I've also tried is following along with a guided audio on YouTube but those have either been distracting, make me fall asleep, or use a method that don't work for me.
If anyone has any advice, suggestions, or similar experience I'd love to hear about it, so that way I can grow and become more confident about it. Also if you have any book recommendations for me to keep my eye out for I'd love to hear them!
