Here’s a short experience Nicole and I had when we were just starting out learning about how to have out of body experiences based on Belsebuub’s work. It was a pretty neat way to experience the process together and how one of us could see the other in the astral while they were asleep.
“One morning around dawn Andrew and I were doing an astral practice. We lay on our back’s next to each other in bed and began our practice. After a short while I managed to come out of my body.
I was pretty excited because this was one of the first times I was not a blob and had control over my body. I sat up and decided to try and wake Andrew to get him in the astral with me.
I rolled over and sat on him, shaking his shoulders, saying ‘Get up! Get up! We’re in the astral!’ My efforts were fruitless, so I got down off the bed (it was a loft style bed).
Once I was down I decided to make one last effort to wake Andrew. I reached up and grabbed his foot and gave it a hard yank. Nothing happened, so I decided I’d better get going.”
“As I lay still and relaxed my body I quickly felt very heavy and almost ‘numb’ as my body began to fall into sleep. I began using my concentration technique trying to relax deeper and maintain a good focus. I tried not to get distracted by body sensations and just kept coming back to my technique.
At a certain point I felt a weight on my chest and it suddenly seemed hard to breathe. Again, I tried not to let this distract me and continued with my concentration.
Soon after I felt my right foot begin to pull away from my physical body. It was my astral foot of course and it felt like it was being stretched out and downwards.
I’d experienced my arms and feet disassociating from the physical like this before and so I tried to ignore my excitement at getting close to leaving my body and I continued my practice. A few moments later slipped out of consciousness and fell asleep. When I woke up, I couldn’t remember any dreams.
“I walked into the living room and turning around I saw Andrew walking out of the bedroom towards me. ‘Woohoo! Andrew you’re in the astral, lets go!‘ I shouted.
But he brushed past me like I wasn’t even there. It was as if he was sleep walking. (He had fallen asleep and left his body, but was in a dream, not conscious and awake in the astral plane) ‘No big deal‘ I thought, I had some questions I wanted to ask so I went along my astral way.
Going into the kitchen some of it was blocked off by strips of yellow caution tape, but I saw a huge calendar on the wall, with a date circled in red. I told myself I better remember this date, it seems important and then I left the apartment. Not long after that, my experience ended and I woke up.”
