Astral Travelling is a topic I’ve been interested in for a long time. I’ve read about other people’s experiences and I’ve read instructions on how to do it but there was still that gap of not experiencing it for myself. I’ve experienced close calls where I’ve felt like I was rising out of my body, only to realise it and then snap back. I’ve been able to lucid dream for a long time, and I work with my dreams for problem solving and receiving guidance for specific issues. However the whole astral projection has eluded me. Well, until now.
A few days ago I was laying in bed having just woken up from an afternoon nap. I was still laying with my eyes closed in a dazed sleepy state when I had the thought “I might give astral travelling a go”. Even though I’d tried many times before, this time was different. As I started to try to move without moving I asked for help from the universe, the angels or a guide – it was just a general call for assistance. Almost immediately I felt ‘someone’ put their hand on my knee and then everything started getting really loud. I heard a voice so loudly that it was as though someone was speaking to me through a megaphone, they said “The universe is waiting for you”
That was all I needed. It was a clear, distinct voice that was not my own which sent chills right through my body. What did that even mean? I was so excited, I knew this was it. I gave one big heave, as though I had my arms over my head on the pillow and then in one motion threw them forwards. I moved right out of my body. It was easier than I had been making it all these years.
It was quite easy to move around, however almost like I was a little drunk, like I was finding my sense of balance. Any direction I set my focus on I would move. I was sort of flying but low to the ground, more like as if gravity had been released somewhat. I went through the walls of my house however I didn’t end up on the outside of my house, I went somewhere else.
I was hovering over green grass and as I looked up to my left there was a grassy hill and red brick apartments. There was a set of swings on concrete in front of the apartment building, and as I moved toward them I started playing. I could push off the ground and jump so high, spinning around and I felt exhilarated.
As I stopped playing I called out for a guide. One appeared, soaring over head. I had never seen this guide before and all I could see was a large face, with a big nose. He appeared almost cartoon like. I asked ‘his’ name and heard the reply instantly; “Astrid”.
I was so excited by my experience that I couldn’t wait to come back and tell my partner 🙂 I moved around a bit more with my guide, but then it’s almost as if the moment I had started thinking about coming back there I was. Laying on my bed, however I was completely paralysed. I have experienced this feeling of paralysis many times before but it wasn’t until this time that I realised that it was linked to astral travelling. I breathed and waited for my ability to move my body to return. My heart was beating so fast.
I still don’t know where I went to, but it doesn’t really matter – yet. I feel like I will visit that place again and then I may know where it is and why I am visiting it. I can’t wait to go again.
