How I Learned the Value of Persistence in Gaining Astral Experiences

Experience Submitted by Michael

While studying Belsebuub’s course on astral travel and dreams I didn’t initially didn’t have the successes that seemed to come so easily to my fellow students on the course. I even found myself falling into the pitfall of comparing myself to others on this account and feeling disappointed. But I persisted nevertheless and finally saw results.

On one occasion during this time period I travelled to another friend’s apartment, where I was staying for the weekend and decided to have a nap in the afternoon.

I didn’t expect to experience lucid dreaming or astral projection – then to my pleasant surprise, I “woke up” within a dream.

In my dream I was in the room where I was staying, which was exactly how it was physically. I started to do some investigations to check if I was in the astral, such as touching objects to see if my hand would pass through them, or pulling my finger to see if it stretched. This lucid experience was probably one of the longest I’d had and it made me feel that my efforts had eventually paid off.

  • Thanks Michael very inspiring to read your experience and what you discovered about having success, I have also experienced how the effort we put in we get out, although not always apparent, I also understand what you mean about comparing yourself to others as I also have fallen into that trap and I found it just prevents you from achieving any sort of experiences

    • Thanks for your comment Richard. Yes, that’s very true – what we put in is what we get out.

  • Thanks for sharing your insights Michael,

    Comparing yourself to others is a rokie error isn’t it? I remember making that mistake as well; obviously there’s a lot to be learned from it.

    I’m very grateful for the reminder about persistance and activity, it’s crucial, thank you.

  • You are so right that we mustn’t compare ourselves to others. I’ve been disheartened many, many times, not having the experiences of some of my friends who also astral travel. But these sorts of comparisons do nothing to help us, really only bringing us down. And after all, as you noted, often we get an experience when we are least expecting it, at the right time for us.

    • Thanks for your comments Mike and Martin. Yes, it’s very common to compare ourselves with others in so many aspects of our lives, which can easily lead to feelings of dissatisfaction. But each of us has something different that we need to learn about, so it’s rather silly to expect to get the same type of learning as our peers, as this may not be the most appropriate thing for us at that time.
