Beyond the Astral by “Ancienteyes”
I call this ”Beyond the Astral” because this experience is a lyttel different than what I usually experience during a ‘projection,’ which by the way, always come unexpectedly. Most of my experiences during projections, are, I believe, fabricated by my own mind. In that the surroundings are actually built by the mind. That is why, if I am afraid when this happens, then the ‘fear’ in my mind will fabricate a scary experience, thus becoming a nightmare. If I am able to recognize what’s going on and during that micro-second of projection, I am able to tell myself that everything is okay. Then and only then, will I have an experience without fear and apprehension. These experiences can be really cool if I can get past that.
In 1995, around August or September. I had a most incredible ‘out of body.’ I was listening to some really cool meditative music by; Spiritual Environment, called, Shamanic Dreams. Well boy, I’ll tell you, I had a Shamanic Dream. I was lying on the couch, light dimmed, music low, everyone in bed asleep. I wasn’t expecting or trying for an ‘out of body.’ Though I’m always sort of alert to the fact that they could come at any time, so that I can catch myself and turn off the ‘fear mode.’ As I’ve said, they occur involuntarily and suddenly, thus sometimes throwing me off and fear taking over, causing a nightmare. Seem also to happen easier if I am flat on my back. Exposing the ‘Solar Plexus’ area, I guess. Anyway, on this night, I was able to quickly tell myself what was going on when the sensation of separation began. Perfect. I told myself to expect a rushing wave like sound, a glowing transparency and a feeling of weightlessness, a feeling of knowing that I will be away from my body, but yet still thinking and seeing. So smooth. There I was, a physical body on the couch, but only a fleeting glimpse. A transparent glowing body standing in the middle of the living room, parallel to my physical, facing the north. The Head of my body was also to the north. In front of my transparent self, there stood another one of me. These two Souls merged and without any warning to one part of my consciousness, flew straight up through the ceiling, through the attic and out into the night. Within a second I was in the cosmos. I was huge. I was so huge, that galaxies were all around me, seemingly only inches away about the size of silver dollars. They were spinning right in front of me. All I could move were my eyes and my head. I could see my feet at the other end of the Universe. I remember smiling with thanks to whatever guided me to such a magnificent experience. Then I realized that I must be really far away from home and that I must start back. Within a micro-second, I opened my eyes, turned the lights on, got up and woke Diana to tell her what had just happened.
‘Tis funny how these experiences can easily turn into terrifying nightmares. If you don’t know what’s going on, your own fear can create monsters, so to speak.
