Attempting My First Astral Projection


So I've always been into this spiritual stuff right. Well a few months ago I was just minding my own business, trying to sleep as usual. When all of the sudden, my body goes into this vibrational state. Now during that first (as you may call it "sleep paralysis") experience I was scared out of my wits. I had no idea what was going on, apparently I just kept sinking deeper and deeper into it. I thought I was having some sort of mental breakdown.

Anyways, I get scared and try to move and shout. I could do none of these things, I struggled against the feeling as it was not something I had consciously felt before. I begun hearing voices, oh man so many voices. I thought to myself, is that my subconscious trying to talk to me? I eventually got out of it a few moments later. I was literally so shocked that I ran into my bathroom and hid their (during like midnight for some time) hyperventilating and having a panic attack. I never wanted to feel that way again.

But a few nights later, the same experience happened again! This time it was visual, saw something transform like evolution from a human to an elephant and some other things that didn't make a lick of sense. When I got out of the sleep paralysis, I immediately went online to search for it. Apparently I wasn't alone and many, many others had experienced this. My goodness it was very terrifying. I then learned all about astral projection and how sleep paralysis was the first step to getting their. But I didn't want to feel that way again so I didn't even bother trying until now.

This happened over the course of the past few months maybe 7-8 times in total. Each time I went deeper and just accepted it, but ended up lucid dreaming when I went too deep. I got terrified thinking a demon or something was in my room going to scare me if I went into the astral plane, so I screamed affirmations in my mind such as "angels please protect me" and "angels please guide me" or something of the sorts.

My latest sleep paralysis was when I was doing a theta hz waves meditation but I got so relaxed that it happened again. This time, I wasn't scared as much as the first time (mainly because I had anxiety issues and working through them really helped me). I begun to go deeper into it. I kept hearing the voices and even MYSELF say "I don't want them to know." And as soon as I asked "What don't I want them to know?" I slipped into lucid dreaming once again. I was completely aware of myself, even thought I was awake (happened like 5 hours ago). I did it during when the sunshine could be seen in my room, but in my lucid dream it was completely dark.

Although, after I went into it I tried some techniques I memorized (pulling yourself up with a rope, getting your hands out) but when I thought I had stood my astral body up, I was awake. I was very disappointed thinking I could actually do it this time since the vibrations were extremely strong and the hallucinations got stronger.

I hope you liked my story! Going to try it again in the next few days.

Be brave friends, let go of the fear, as impossible as it seems in these initial phases. Read up on energy work and try various techniques.

I'm currently spinning myself out of my body, the centrifugal force literally sends my astral body out to the globe like surface the force creates around me. The faster I spin the larger the globe/surface. Just now I expanded to the edges of a very large room, and could feel the walls closing in on me my astral body was so huge.

Fear not the dark things either. While they're the seeds of what I knew as night terrors as a child, now at 39, and knowing how to project, fly, remain conscious, and fight with a potency these creatures cannot match, that sleep paralysis/vibrational tied fear has become thrilling extasy. It's all about belief in one's self and knowing you are a good person on a new spiritual frontier that you've earned. I believe in all of you. So keep facing it, I promise things will change if you do.

And work on remembering your shadow memory. Nothing wrong with suffering in the physical plane too, just as long as it's building your will to persevere. I think that's why it's finally becoming so far easier for me; I am finally a man that cannot compromise my honor and integrity for anything in this petty and materialistic world, nor am I able to stoop morally low even though everyone around me is.

I won't say it hasn't been far lonelier in the physical world because of it either, but the experiences I'm having in the astral are more than making up for it. Keep trying and be well all. And boy is it great to see others coming to terms with this thing much like I did throughout my childhood, and as a young adult into my 30s. We'll be waiting for you until you do.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but I have a real problem with astral projection in that my body involuntarily does it. I can go months without this happening and then it will be every day or every other day for a few weeks. It happens when I sleep and has been happening since I was a teenager (that I can recall). I usually encounter demons with no face -dark/black silhouettes and the world is dark. The lights do not work and shadows try to engulf you turning the room or place blacker and blacker. There is this immediate feeling of terror and I say the name Jesus and those demons leave me alone. These range from gigantic 9-10foot silhouettes and also these pale grey child size minnions whonare equally strong. At rare times I have also seen beautiful colours in the outside world. Giants with human features and strange beasts seemingly living in a plane invisible to us. I didn't feel afraid but was in awe at the amazing colours of the sky.
I don't know why this happens or what I am supposed do, but it's becoming a concern. I sometimes see people there but it's dark and I'm mostly afraid. And I stumbled upon this thread looking for answers as I've just had an encounter with a Hispanic doctor named Noel -even though we did not speak. The point is, it's not a nice place. I feel the demons or whatever pulling me in when I am trying to fight sleep and when I'm there I just want to get the hell out!

I have no Idea how you guys can get so Far. My Version of A.P. Doesn't seem like yours. I lie down, remove control of my limbs, and breath. I do this until I get Sleep Paralysis, or at least a weak form of it. Then I continue waiting until I feel like my body is close, I don't get any real Vibrations, my whole body will feel warm from Paralysis and maybe a little tingly but no Vibrations. I also never see Images or hear anything. After a while I'll start doing the Rope Method, usually nothing, sometimes I get what I think is close, where my vision starts getting brighter in some areas, but fades away. It usually ends with my eyes opening automatically, and ruining the experience. How you people can walk up and away from your bodies or see your room or feel your limbs lifting up, I have no Idea. I wish I could have something like yours or understand how you do it like that.

Chimi, you can experiences similar feelings if your body reaches a very relaxed state with no thoughts flowing through your head otherwise if it wasn't astral projection it could have been a number of things possibly a Chakra opening maybe kundalini awakening there are many different plans you can reach through your primary Chakras consciously it all connects.
P.s. Joseph you're tripping you can be attacked but if you have intentions to win then you will and also you have a light shield you can produce with the energy body to scare entities off and another thing you can't be killed unless the silver cord is cut and that only gets "cut" when the physical body dies.

[at] Stewart I had the same problem before. I'm not sure why, but it only happens sometimes and then it stops. When this happens to me I just keep my eyes closed and continue with the process. No matter how badly the spinning gets DO Not Open Your Eyes. You can get through that. I don't know how to reach the Vibrational stage. I get totally relaxed. I'll lay there completely still, ignoring all of my itching senses for an hour at least. I'll either fall asleep or get tired and lose focus-> then fall asleep. I feel tingly and heavy on my arms and mostly throughout my body, but I just can't seem to enter the vibrational stage. I really need advice. If you know anything please text me (810) 373-9820Thank you!

Every time I try to astral project, my head starts spinning while my eyes are still closed and it forces me to open my eyes because the spins turn really violent... Please help. Could this mean I'm not ready to astral project yet or...? I don't have any fear carrying me either and I do make it to the vibration state but the head spinning interrupts and I don't see any videos on head spinning's is a sign of entering the astral realm. Has anyone else experienced this? Another problem as well is having the need to swallow because my mouth gets dry from breathing in and out.

Is the lower vibration level scary?
Even I am scared. Will someone in the astral world attack me to acquire my body.
