Soon after I discovered Belsebuub’s courses for teaching astral projection I was off on a long hike in nature, and not being able to have regular internet access, had to postpone my first astral course until I got home. Still, the thoughts of astral projection and anticipation of the course inspired me. I believe they gave rise to my first small experience.
Spontaneous Astral Projection Experience Under a Tree
I was resting under the shade of a tree after hours of walking. I was deeply relaxed and felt full of a peaceful kind of happiness. I was calmly watching the sun in the leaves above me and enjoying the beauty. I didn’t know any astral techniques at that time, but felt a strong longing to be close to the divine, as well as a curiosity – I wondered what it would be like to leave my body.
I fell asleep in this state and then ‘woke up’ in the trees, seeing the same leaves, sun and branches that I had been watching from below, but now close up. I knew that I was simultaneously there and also lying on the ground. The experience only lasted a few moments; when I thought about what was happening and my physical body lying somewhere else, the surprise curtailed any exploration. I felt myself merging back into my body gently and woke up.
First Experiences Using Belsebuub’s Astral Projection Tips
Though this taste of the astral was motivating, I questioned whether it was real or my imagination. My next experience erased any doubt. Now enrolled on Belsebuub’s astral travel and dreams course, I was enjoying trying the astral exercises, which combined relaxation with various concentration practises, and feeling the various sensations of the ‘astral split’.
I started going to bed early so I could try my astral exercises, yet also getting up late; basically I spent a lot of time dozing, in that place in-between sleep and wakefulness where astral projection often takes place. I really enjoyed the feelings of becoming acutely aware of what was going on both within me and around me as I was falling asleep.
Taking an ‘astral nap’ one afternoon, I had dozed off and turned on my side, when I woke up and returning to my practice felt myself lift up and move backwards up into the room. I was surprised, but knew what was happening and managed to stay calm. I went to the light switch and checked if it worked – it didn’t, so I pulled my finger and it stretched – I was in the astral!
I left the room wanting to explore, and saw a woman who certainly didn’t live in our house coming up the stairs to meet me. She wasn’t particularly scary, but not someone I felt great vibes from either. Just coming face to face with this other-dimensional person startled me enough to make me return to my body. It was a short experience, but finally I had the certainty I hungered for that astral projection was real.
Exploring Astral Travel Further
The following period, until I moved out of home and into a new routine was full of mini-experiences. I felt the boundaries between the physical and astral worlds get thinner. I would do a lot of ‘reality checks’ and would often ‘wake up from a dream’ in my house as a result. As soon as I knew I would immediately run and fly outside – it kind of felt like a dash for freedom – then try to get somewhere specific or explore.
