Good evening dear readers!

Today I had a little heart-to-heart conversation with my dear mother, and I told her about the message I’d gotten for her from her dad and grandma. Mom was first very quiet, and then seemed relieved somehow. Apparently the message had hit home a bit better than I’d thought. Then we started talking about certain experiences, and I mentioned my one and only out of body experience. Have I told you about that?

It was a completely spontaneous event some 6-8 years ago, and was scary as hell. You see, I didn’t expect it to happen and hadn’t even thought such a thing was possible. But all of a sudden, I was floating in mid air. First my left side had lifted, and then my right. I was in complete shock. I clearly wasn’t levitating, since my body was still down there, but I was hovering in mid air! When I realized I didn’t know how to get down I panicked. Yea, really. I thrashed and kicked like crazy in utter terror, trying desperately to get back into my body. After a little while I managed to calm down, and somehow realized that I needed to calm myself. As I pushed away the panic I regained control and suddenly I could lower myself into my body again, first one side and then the other, just like going up. I don’t think I’ve ever been so relieved in my entire life!

Turned out Mom had also had a few out of body experiences. Though when I mentioned that I’d recently been actively trying to achieve one again she just laughed. For her, it seems like a weird thing to do on purpose, probably because her own experiences seem to have been connected to very dark premonitions. My experience on the other hand was very local, and didn’t really seem to mean anything. It was just that my mind/soul/whatever popped out of my body without warning. No visions, no spirit messages or anything. Just very cool. =)

I’ve been reading about different techniques people say are good when trying to get an out-of-body experience/astral project themselves. And I gotta say, most of it to me sounds more like visualization or just a focused meditation. Imagining how I pull myself out of my body, or float out from the top of my head or imagine myself as a ball of light that floats away… Tell me how that’s not really “just” visualization? Now I can see the value in that too, I’m sure some people might get accurate visions or do remote viewing this way. But it sure as hell (pardon the language) doesn’t sound anything at all like what I experienced. It wasn’t some kind of visualization. I wasn’t creating images in my mind. It felt so damn physical! I wasn’t projecting my mind to a place outside my body, I just was outside my body! With no sense of the actual physical body whatsoever, not even the slightest hint that the physical me still extisted! I couldn’t feel the surface underneath my body, couldn’t move or even open my eyes even if I tried! Instead, whenever I tried to move it was my etheric body that responded (hence the kicking and thrashing and trying to get down). That was the >only< body I could sense at all.

Now I don’t know if that is really “normal” in astral projection, but that’s what I’d like to experience again, in a controlled way. But I really don’t know how to do this, as the techniques I’ve found online don’t work for me. Yes, I’ve tried. I visualize whatever is recommended (for example climbing a rope that stretches out of my body) and… I just continue to visualize. It becomes almost like a meditation where I create a scenario in my head. But that’s the problem, I never actually leave my own head. In other words, no real out-of-body experience.

Sigh… Do you understand my dilemma? Have you got any similar experiences? Any advide that doesn’t involve simple visualizing how I get out? I have been trying a little almost every day for the last couple of weeks, during my regular evening-meditation. And I think I’ve managed to get my hands free. And I’ve felt a weird sort of rocking motion going on, almost like my astrail body tried to get out but couldn’t. So I can get to the point where I am moving just a tiiiiiny bit without actually moving. Am I making any sense here?

Anyhow, ideas or comments are very welcome! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!
