Astral, cant seem to cross over?

Postby Arabius » Mon Aug 15, 2011 11:38 am

Well lately I've been trying astral projection as something I thought would be good to learn. Normally I meditate a lot so I figured it wouldn't be too difficult. Every time with every method I've tried I get really relaxed, clear my mind... But that's were the journey ends. I can't seem to make the jump from my physical body to my astral body.

The only things I tend to see when laying there are little white dots that come and go. I got close to it once I think, but I always get a weird feeling of suffocating... So I figured I would ask for help before I hurt myself.

I've attempted to read many articles on the subject, they also state that lucid dreaming is a method. I have extremely vivid and colorful dreams all the time, but that's also a problem. I usually don't realize I'm dreaming until I awake... Even if I am flying... :| However I can usually recall every detail in my dreams perfectly.

So I'll leave this here for anyone who feels they can help. Many thanks in advance. :)

Try this!

Astra Travel Powder
Sprinkle on the bedsheets and pillow before sleeping. this helps relax and lead your conscious to slip into Astral Travel easier. You still have to go into your meditative state.

2 tsp fine Sandlewood
1 tsp Mugwort
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp lavendar

Happy travels.

So I decided I should update based on how far I've been getting.

So far I have preacticed every day since making this topic, I'm dedicated :P

A few times I could feel the vibrations but either they broke my concentration, or they just went away...

I'm still not sure if I've had the sleep paralysis part. I mean I still feel myself laying there either way.

The only somewhat proof I have that I was close, is that one night. I was trying to astral project, I feel into a unconscious state came back out of it about 10min later and I could heavily feel the vibrations, and my heart was beating extremely hard/fast.

Unfortunettly me waking up ruined that, and now while attempting last night after a long day, I just fell asleep.

So today I may give it a try during the day.

AzaleaMoon Thank you for your help I may try this.

I will now be using this thread as a virtual log for my astral projection attempts.

Last night while attempting Lucid Dreaming via WBTB, the "Wake Back To Bed" technique. I had a rather interesting experience. After waking up and going back to sleep. I managed to somehow catch myself falling back asleep. I remember hearing a distinctive buzzing/poping noise.

I thought I could faintly see with my eyes closed then it went away because my concentration was broken.

Considering I did this without attempting astral, it makes me very happy :D I hope to try this again soon.

try this at a different time, not bed time. your body knows when it is time to sleep and may not "travel"

I tried WBTB again but didn't awaken myself enough. I fell straight back to sleep with nothing special happening.

Last night I tried listening to theta tones and feeling my body go to sleep so I could understand it better. I could actually hear the tone go away as my hearing would cut out and come back. It was never gone for longer than a split second, because once I was there I would try to get my bearings which would pull me out of it >_< I was way to tired and eventually fell asleep, then woke up at midnight wondering why I had my ipod on yet XD I continued to randomly awaken through the night.

Today around 12:00pm I tried laying down and attempted to get into paralysis. I could feel myself slipping into the unconscious part of my mind and back again. But very time I would purposely try to feel the bed against myself. When I felt it go away I knew where I was close to. But once I was there I couldn't even think really, and it always went away within the same split second as it began.

I eventually stopped after about 15min.

AzaleaMoon Thanks I'll try that. :)

Well Last night was a utter failure with my custom mp3 I made.

The bells didn't awaken me, and I had such a hard time getting to sleep in the first place I never stayed a sleep longer than 15min.....

I think I've reached the point of failing due to trying way too hard.

This morning I tried to do what took me 15min yesterday. I spent a hour trying and eventually gave up. I shouldn't be disgruntled as I am. I'm sure I'm not the first to have these issues.

Today I'll meditate and try clearing my chakras. Somethings wrong... somewhere. I can just tell something isn't right.
