One day I got together with a few friends to try to astral project inspired by what we had learned in Belsebuub’s astral travel course. We had chosen a date several weeks into the future to give ourselves adequate time to prepare.
I was very excited by the idea of having some time focused on astral projection and decided I’d do everything I could to maximize my chance of success. Referring back to Belsebuub’s notes I set myself a multi week schedule to strengthen my level of concentration using his methodology.
When the date arrived I had a high sense of anticipation. My first attempt was alright but not great, I had plenty of sensations, high pitched whirring, limb movement etc., but wasn’t able to project.
Things got interesting in the second try and I felt myself rising out of my body ending up half floating and half standing, though quite unstable. I couldn’t hold it together that well and soon ended back in my body.
It would have been nice to be out for longer but nonetheless I had some success and I could feel myself grinning. I decided to try to intensify my efforts and went back to do the method I was doing, soon I felt myself raising out of my body again and ended up standing in the room. I looked around and my friends were all still lying down so I decided to go exploring.
I ran and dived into the fireplace and came out the other side flying through a cityscape. I veered in and out through the skyscrapers which was kind of cool but I wanted something more so asked to be taken somewhere spiritual. I accelerated and was soon flying over nature heading somewhere at high speed, for some reason my mind began to takeover and things got fuzzy and back into my body I went.
The second attempt ended soon after I returned to my body but now I was inspired. I tried a third time and intensified my efforts even further. In a matter of minutes I was out of my body for a third time and headed off on an adventure.
When that concluded and I returned into my body I just said to myself lets go again and out I popped this time I sort of rotated my feet remaining on the floor and my body rising for my fourth projection of the night and another adventure before returning to my physical body.
Again and again the process repeated, five times, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, each time I came back into my body I concentrated my mind and took off again in the astral, it was so natural and exciting it felt like I could project at will.
I was stoked. Ten projections in one night, I’d projected several times in a night before but nothing like this. It was time to try again and I was still abuzz but this strange sense of self-satisfaction came over me, for some reason I lost the hunger to get out of my body and soon drifted into sleep.
It was a really fun night, with lots of lessons, reflecting on it now I see the greatest lesson to take is never allow myself to become complacent. Who knows how many more times I could have projected and how many more teachings received if I’d pushed through that ego of self-satisfaction.
