Back at the end of January I posted Good Vibrations detailing my first experiences with astral projection, otherwise known as an OBE. Since then I have had two more occurrences which I would like to share with you here. In my original post I mentioned that I had experienced entire bodily vibrations right before I was able to have my OBE. In both of my recent events I also encountered these same bodily vibrations while being in between an awake and sleeping state. Fortunately, in both cases I was completely aware of what was happening so I was prepared for what came next.
The first episode I would like to talk about here was actually the second occurrence within the last two weeks; I’m saving the best for last. As I have written about before, I was lying in bed sort of drifting in and out of sleep when I started feeling those vibrations again. Once I got my wits about me and realized what was happening I began trying to lift myself up out of my physical body with my astral body. On my first attempt I came right up out of my body and was able look down at my daughter who was sleeping next to me. I instantly became intoxicated with enthusiasm and attempted to fly through the wall in front of me and to my surprise, I succeeded! The details of what transpired next are still fuzzy in my mind, but somehow I ended up back in my physical body and felt the vibrations again. I made another attempt at lifting myself out of my body but wasn’t having much success. I then felt what seemed to be two hands pulling at both of my feet, almost as if someone or something was trying to help me project out of my body. I would like to note here that at the time I was lying face down in bed, my first experience with an OBE I was lying face up. Again, the details of what ensued next escape me, but there was one more attempt that I remember. I rose up out of my body and was moving about the room when I made another attempt at passing through the wall. Unfortunately, I was not able to pass through nor was I able to think of a location and somehow appear there. This occurrence, while very fascinating to say the least, still felt somewhat dreamlike and I am still skeptical as to what exactly took place. While I don’t doubt that I was having an OBE, I still am unsure of the entirety of the episode that was happening since there were moments in the sequence of events that I don’t recollect.
The next OBE I would like to discuss with you was actually the first of the two that happened in the last two weeks. We had just moved into our new place and I was sleeping on an air mattress because I still had yet to setup the bed. Like I mentioned before, my experience proceeded briefly after I had laid down to sleep. I was somewhere in between being awake and asleep, that moment when the conscious mind lets go and the subconscious takes over. I felt the same buzzing all over my body and immediately recognized what was happening. This time, however, I don’t recall trying to project out of my body rather I kept slipping in and out of consciousness. I’m not sure how much time transpired but if felt like my body was vibrating for quite a while. What happened next I can’t explain, all I can remember was that I was flying somewhere in outer space passing by the heavenly bodies at an extremely high rate of speed. I then approached only what I can describe as a planet that looked like earth. Somehow I suddenly ended up in a very large room with a tall, gentle looking creature that had a human form but not a human face. This whole time I remember being very ecstatic because I knew what was taking place. Before I went to sleep I said a quiet prayer asking for my guides to help me astral project again, I also asked for any guidance to help me get a better understanding to my purpose here.
As I was standing in the room with the being I remember communication taking place, regrettably, I don’t remember what was said. Next, I was led out of the room with the creature by a male figure into another area where there were a set of stairs. We climbed up the stairs and I was taken into a room that reminded me of an office space in a typical office building. Inside was a blond female who introduced herself as “Suzie.” The man who guided me to this point said to Suzie, “he wants to know what he should work on.” Suzie was very considerate and friendly and said with a big smile, “his heart’s purpose and possessiveness.” At that point we seemed to be waiting on something so I patiently waited while my male guide picked up a magazine and started thumbing through it. What happened next was very confusing to me and didn’t seem to fit with what my whole journey up to this point had been about. He handed me the open magazine and pointed out a picture of a handgun with a scope, all I can remember was thinking to myself, “what is this suppose to mean, why is he showing me a gun?” To clarify things, the entire incident up to this point was extremely realistic, I was very aware of what was happening, and knew that I was being led by my guides and that my physical body was still laying there in my room. I felt very calm and safe, but at the same time I was euphoric with a sense of purpose as if this was all meant to happen. The male figure led me out of Suzie’s office into another room when suddenly I opened my eyes and was lying back in my room again. The whole incidence ended suddenly in what I can only describe as a movie scene when someone is having a dream then the immediate proceeding scene shows that person lying in bed opening their eyes.
The conclusion to my OBE was abrupt and did not leave me wondering if I had merely been dreaming, or even lucid dreaming. As I woke and sat up in bed I was convinced to exactly what had just taken place. There is no question in my mind that I had been led by my guides on an astral journey and been shown areas in my life that I needed to improve upon and find more answers for. The entire journey left me with nothing but positive emotions about my purpose in life; however, the incident with the gun invokes a negative reaction and I am uncertain of its meaning. Hopefully, through more meditation and searching I will gain more insight to what I was being shown.
