My first astral projection experience happened while waiting for Belsebuub’s online astral course to start. I still had two weeks to wait, but being so eager to experience this new dimension of life, I spent all my days reading about the experiences of others, trying to do everything that could lead to an astral experience. Things like being aware of the present moment and full body relaxation before going to bed at night really helped.
At that time, I was already familiar with the astral plane through having lucid dreams, but really wanted to experience a conscious astral projection and how it feels when the two bodies separate (what’s known as the astral split).
One night, after spending quite some time reading about the astral plane and other people’s experiences, I became determined that I was going to have an experience myself and was not going to wait any longer…
I thought to myself – if my astral body separates from my physical body every night as I go to sleep, then all I have to do is to catch this process as it happens. Armed with this determination, I went to sleep. I lay down as usual, relaxed my body and then did my best to just be aware and not sidetracked by any thoughts – becoming a spy of my own sleep…
Determined to Succeed
For some time, nothing special happened, but I kept my determination strong and was ready to stay guarding my sleep process for as long as I could. I am not sure how much time had passed, when suddenly everything started to feel different.
I felt very light and when I moved my covers, the sound was very loud. I started to suspect I might be in the astral and decided to try to get up from my bed. I did so very slowly, not wanting to disrupt the nice drowsy state I was feeling.
I sat up on the edge of my bed, but felt dizzy. At this point it became clear to me that this had to be the astral plane, because I had never felt like that in the physical world.
As I tried to get up from my bed, I lost my balance and fell back onto my bed. For some reason it was not easy for me to get up and walk. I felt wobbly, but I made another attempt to get up. This time I managed to stand up and walk a few steps alongside my bed while supporting myself by holding the bed frame.
I was baffled how light I was, just walking there without my body like that, and thought to myself – so, now I am a ghost! 🙂 I made it to the end of my bed and stopped to look around my bedroom, perceiving the atmosphere it had in the astral.
First Impressions of the Astral Plane
The room felt huge, as if connected to an infinite space. I spoke a few words and heard my voice resonating all around me, echoing around the room; it felt very magical.
Then I realised that I could not see and decided to try and open my astral eyes. Unfortunately, because I was putting a lot of physical effort into it, I ended up opening my physical eyes. This immediately brought me back to my body and I found myself staring at the wall in front of me, still feeling very peaceful and in awe of what has just happened.
Despite this experience being short, it was a very memorable one for me. It was the first time I was able to experience the astral plane so clearly, without dreaming before.
I remember my whole day being changed because of this, and feeling the presence of the astral dimension all around me that day. I realised how these two dimensions (the physical and the astral) are always here and now, we are just not aware of it.
