How in Two Different Out-of-Body Experiences I Saw People in the Astral

Experience submitted by Steve F

When I was taking Belsebuub’s astral course, I took part in several group astral projection gatherings where people were trying to get out consciously into the astral dimension, and if they made it, to fly to various destinations and to meet up there.

Projecting Using a Mantra

One of these was to try to meet up at the pyramids in Egypt. We used the mantra Fa Ra On; however, I wasn’t that good at concentrating and focusing on mantras to get into the astral so I was a bit skeptical about my chances of making it, but I wanted to give it a good go, and like others in the group I focused on the mantra and tried my best.

I didn’t feel any of the sensations like vibrations, or motor noises that can occur when coming out of body but I noticed that after a while of pronouncing Fa Ra On I seemed to feel that I had a floating sensation.

Actually, it felt like all of my body was floating and waving about like a flag in a light wind but the one thing that I could feel that was not floating was my head; it seemed still and locked in one position.

It felt like my astral body was almost completely out of or separated from my physical body except for my head which seemed locked within my physical body’s head. It was like I was stuck in my head and my feet were floating about in the astral world!

I tried but I couldn’t separate my astral body’s head from my physical body’s head. I was stuck, I was literally stuck in my head, I couldn’t believe it! So close but I couldn’t get completely out into the astral world..

I also got a sense of someone walking around the place upstairs. I saw one of the people from the group walking around and it was unusual because when I looked it seemed almost cartoonist or dull in color compared to real life.

I could see the person and knew who they were but the color seemed really dull but somehow, I could see them, yet I still felt like I was stuck in my head, it was like I was seeing things with my ‘mind’s eye’ so to speak.

After this I fell back asleep and then the astral attempt ended. Once we were all awake we gathered together to talk about the method we just tried and I discussed my experience with my friends.

To my surprise, the person I had seen walking around upstairs in the astral then shared that they had been able to have an an out-of-body experience as well, and was taken through the earth to the destination in Egypt which we had put as a goal at the beginning of the gathering. So it seems to me that I had been able to see them in the astral.

Seeing a Negative Entity in the Astral

On another occasion a group of us taking Belsebuub’s courses decided to get into the astral on one particular weekend.

I don’t remember the specifics of the astral method we tried at the time but I remember waking up in the astral in the room where we were all trying to project. The room seemed a bit dimmer than usual, yet I recognized where I was as I could see items of the room that were there in the physical but I noticed a bad feeling somewhere around in the room.

I couldn’t pin point it until I heard a whispering sound coming from the window, the whispering sound seemed all mumble jumble to me but someone or something outside was at the window whispering something as if they were intending to say this mumble towards the people inside the room. “What is it?” I thought.

A sudden feeling of darkness came over me as I sensed that the entity at the window was evil in nature.

Someone else had also made it into the astral as well as I heard one of the other people yell out “Call the police! Someone’s at the window!

Unfortunately I fell back into dreams, losing my awareness of being in the astral, but when I later woke up and discussed it with the others participating, we confirmed that we did sense a dark entity at the window that night trying to stop us from getting into the astral.

And that person I had heard call out in the astral confirmed that they had also made it to the astral and had felt the same dark feeling coming from the window, and even saw a negative entity standing outside whispering at the window.

Funnily enough, my first reaction when I felt the negative entity was to go find a phone to call for the police, following what the other person had yelled, yet when I woke up, I realized I would have a better luck with a protective recitation, after all, that negative entity was outside the room and could not come in, but it is funny how the mind works, and I wanted to call the police in the astral!

  • Thanks Steve, funny but interesting experiences! It must have been a real help to ‘get you out of your head’ to have these confirmations that the astral is real. 🙂

  • Haha, I really liked the phone the police moment 🙂 But I can see how someone lurking ‘just outside’ can stir a particular fear within. That mumbling seems very spot on though for those negative creatures to try to, perhaps?, spur on that subconscious gibberish chatter already within ourselves to make our astral attempts fail.

    I was also once at a place with others practicing these techniques together. And during that whole get together many things happened where I could sense or see their influence. It was almost like in that place at that time the barriers between the other world were thinner.

    The being stuck in your head is also quite funny, and perhaps in a strange way nicely symbolic ;-). But I also have trouble relaxing my face a lot of the time. Even when doing a meditation practice I think I’ve just got this stern look on my face the whole time. But it’s better to be relaxed, your experience definitely showed that.

    Again it’s really magical to have the opportunity to come together with others to try to explore this esoteric or magical side of life.

  • Thank you for sharing these Steve, it is always nice to have a confirmation back in physical about the reality of the astral events.
    And how funny about the “police call”! But who knows, if you guys succeeded in calling the “astral,police”, maybe it would still work somehow. 😉

  • That’s very interesting about the negative entity Steve. Was he trying to put an evil spell on you or something through that whispering? And he was able to do it even though you had the circle, from outside of it. It’s interesting how we can learn about the ways these beings work just by encountering them in the astral and seeing and sensing what they are doing to try to stop us. It’s kind of amazing how they always find you as well! I wonder if they are somehow attracted to people making a spiritual effort to astral project or sensing someone is trying to wake up in the astral and there they are, trying to stop them.

    It was funny you thought you should call the police 🙂 Looking back like you said it really sometimes doesn’t occur to you in the astral what the right way of dealing with them would be.

    A few days ago I became lucid in the astral but most of the time I was constantly attacked by various negative entities. I was thinking to myself, how do people make it in the astral, I mean going to explore places etc., when all I can do is just fight these things! I wasn’t very conscious though and didn’t remember the recitations correctly, plus I felt flustered and a little anxious that they will never go so maybe that allowed them to keep attacking. There was a point where I said a recitation through three times, although I thought I couldn’t do it as there was a lot of pressure, but as I did they were unmasked and fell on the floor on their faces, and I was left with a little moment where I could go flying out before waking up in my body.

    It is very neat how you were able to verify those experiences with the other people you had seen in the astral plane. There is that feeling of the bottom of your reality falling away for a bit when that happens 😉 I mean the feeling of your reality shifting, when you realize what you had experienced was definitely real.

    Thank you for the reminder that you can’t do these spiritual studies through the mind but it’s all about experiencing, feeling and learning through the consciousness.

    • That’s nice you managed to overcome the negative entities Laura! I find its often like that – you “neutralize” them with the recitations, and then you can go explore for a while, before they pop up again. Having said that though, I also had experiences and even whole periods in my life when I wondered how can people even make it anywhere in the astral or learn anything with so many attacks going on at all times, somehow it felt impossible and even unfair… I also started asking in a more elaborate way every night before going to sleep for protection against these attacks, and it seems to be helping (even though I still have to fight them, it does not feel so overwhelming).

      Wishing all the strength and much learning in the astral plane!

    • Nice experiences Laura! OK, maybe nice isn’t the right word, but great that you broke through to get clear in the astral and were able to get free of the negative forces if only for a while. Sounds like progress in the right direction.

    • Yes, I would say good effort there Laura.
      One thing I’ve often noticed is the correlation of how I do the recitations during the day and how I then do them at night. If before going to bed I just do them mechanically, weakly, plainly and bored (exaggerating a bit here 🙂 ) I often do them in the same way when I become lucid in the astral. So I’ve found it useful when doing them physically to do them with the same vigour as I would need to over there. (and concentration.)

      Another thing, also mentioned in a few experiences here I believe, is the tricks they play on our minds and the tricks our mind plays on us. I also recently became lucid and even before going into another room I knew there would be an entity there. Now I do think/know there was one really there but my state of mind already went into a certain pattern, which I believe the entity made use of. I did the Jupiter recitation which I learned from Belsebuub’s old courses. But one of the erroneous thoughts/fears I sometimes have is ‘will the beam of the recitation also get rid of anything behind me?’ So this entity seeing my fear and knowing my thoughts in a strange way started doing exactly what my fear feared— to try to circle behind me. So then I tried to circle to face him, both of us turning like the hands of a clock. etc.

      Anyway the specifics are not the point. Rather that I had already been ‘caught’ by them. Where I was emotionally involved, and they made use of this, to keep me in this continuous struggling-with-them mode. And even playing on my fears that they wouldn’t go away, and then even when I did the recitations that fear would still be there.

      So not only would they try to stop me from doing things by deceit or scaring me etc. but even that cleverly getting me into that mode of battling with the was the way to block me. If that makes sense.

      The answer? Not quite sure 🙂 But I think it’s important to do the recitations strongly. And also make sure we strongly clear ourselves of lingering fears and shadows in our head when we become lucid. All the strength in your next astral wake up :D!

  • It’s always so exciting to be able to verify an astral experience back in waking life. And it’s cool that in those experiences, you were actually able to verify events taking place purely in the astral, as opposed to verifying physically objective observations like the placement of objects, etc.

    That is kind of a funny reaction to want to call the police in the astral 🙂 Thanks for sharing these experiences, Steve!
