There were some circumstances going on in life which I wanted to gain a better understanding of in the astral.
An Early Night
My resolve was such that I put aside all the plans for the evening and went to bed at 7pm. My attitude was simply that I wasn’t going to let anything stop me from astral projecting.
I spent a long time relaxing, not allowing myself to rush through the process.
This naturally brought me deeper into the process of sleep. I could feel that my breathing had gone into full auto-mode, when noticing this it made me a bit more in control of it again, but I stayed at ease and tried to breath naturally.
At one point I sort of ‘came back’ to my body and full awareness and with something feeling different. It’s a common thing that happens to me. I was glad to be back, although I never knew I was away, and continued my attempt.
I could feel my body starting to greatly heat up. This felt completely physical and yet I knew my temperature, even being under the bedsheets, couldn’t be that warm. It was one of those splitting sensations I sometimes experience. I also knew this because in the past whenever I’d stopped the practice and got up, instantly my temperature was normal. So I continued on.
At one point I could feel that my right hand changed position into making a fist, even though I hadn’t initiated it, plus I knew I’d put it flat on the mattress when lying down. I’ve heard many people say that feeling one’s astral limbs moving is a good time to get up because you’re already in the astral. But not for me. In the past virtually every time I moved I was still in the physical. So I decided to ignore it.
There have been plenty of times where I reached advanced stages in the astral projecting process, but still fell asleep towards the end of it. I didn’t want that this time, so at one point when I didn’t know in what dimension I was anymore I tried to get up. However I was still in the physical…
So I started once again. This time I more easily and quickly got to the stage where I felt it was about time to float out of my body. However my physical body simply didn’t let go of me!
A Lucid Dream That Same Night
Somewhere during the night though I realised I was in the dream world. I was in my room in my family house. At first I couldn’t see very clearly, but this improved when I did some protective recitations.
Interestingly enough I didn’t remember my strong goal at all, the very reason I was eager to try to project earlier that night. Why? Maybe it was because to some degree I made it more important than it actually was? Furthermore I did receive guidance on it in dreams on other occasions.
I looked out of my window and saw the stars. A number of times that week during daily life I’d seen the evening stars from my city window, but I’d had trouble connecting to their subtle and magical energy. In fact I hadn’t been able to feel it at all. This was due to my own state.
In the lucid dream the scenario was the same, yet still I really wanted to feel the magical energy. From that empty feeling inside, in desperation of wanting to feel that magic, I started sending some telepathic messages to my ET brothers to show themselves.
I looked at the stars in the distance, but nothing…
So I continued my communication from the heart and at one point I started to notice a moving ‘star.’ I questioned: “could that be something?” Or “perhaps it’s just my own imagination creating it.”
However then, very clearly and obviously, it made its way towards me across the starry sky, increasing in apparent size, flying high above and over my house. It even left a faint trail on its flight path, which reminded me of one that can also be seen behind a craft at the end of this video over Mount Shasta.
With it came the affirmative, strong and warm feeling of “Yes, we’re here .” As an answer to my question just before and at the same time a response to my wish to feel some magic again.
