Spontaneous Astral Projection


Astral projection is the supposed process of one's soul or consciousness leaving the body to travel elsewhere. Many work to try and achieve the state of leaving one's body. I have talked to a few who practiced techniques and were able to stand up in spirit while the body was lying down, but the feet remained grounded and attached. Some, however, can spontaneously achieve this in sleep state without intending. I am one of them.

Hypnagogia is the experience of the transitional state between wakefulness and sleep in humans: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep. Mental phenomena that occur during this “threshold consciousness” phase include lucid thought, lucid dreaming, hallucinations, and sleep paralysis.

Those of us who have spontaneous astral projection often have or do suffer from variations of sleep disturbances like sleep paralysis and night terrors.

In the state of sleep where I am between wakefulness and sleep, I feel a bit paralyzed, but also every single cell in my body is vibrating like a million hummingbirds flapping wings inside of me. A bit of the lucid logic part of my mind is rushing for explanations like rapid heart beat, seizures, stroke???

Then, it's as if a bubble pops. I'm released from the rapid vibrations and I am alert in a strange place. So far, these occurrences more often than not happen with people I know online but have never met in real life.

One was a British friend that I saw in a marketplace with her mother who was going over piles of books on a table. I got the sense the two of them were not getting along and shopping in spite of an earlier argument. I could smell the place, see the movements, knew where everything around me was. I asked the friend where Clarendon Mall was. Now, I've never been to England and I don't have an idea of any of the local places, so it was an odd request I made. She pointed and described and I left the shop. 

And my body was vibrating like a million hummingbirds flapping their wings. And I was back in my body, awake, feeling a bit tired as if I had traveled, and still feeling the moist cool air of the UK.

The friend on the internet never mentioned having encountered me, but I did ask if she and her mum had an argument and she said, yes, they were arguing over her sister's upcoming marriage while they were out shopping. 

I visited another friend and described her apartment, where everything was, the odd design of it, and even the PJs she was wearing. She was so unnerved, she didn't want to discuss it again. 

I was used to having premonition dreams and going down with airplanes that crashed within 36 hours and disasters and such, but in those dreams I am invisible to everyone but in astral projection, I interact. 

It wasn't until I visited a psychic friend in Greece that it all came together for me!

I was in a high rise apartment looking out over a foreign place. I could see the sea some distance away. I took in the space, the windows, the furnishings, the artwork. 

A woman approached me, petite and dark-haired. Her eyes were wide. She looked surprised and I realized I had to explain how I ended up in her apartment. A man came out of the hallway behind her rubbing his eyes. I realized he had just awakened and it was daylight. He went by and into the kitchen as if I weren't there. 

The woman, however, leaned into me. I asked her where the coliseum was and she spoke very slowly and clearly telling me how to get to it. 

I thought she was talking to me like I was an idiot. 

Then, every cell in my body began to vibrate and poof - I was jolted gently back into my body again. 

A few days later, I got a message from the friend in Greece. "Ah, my friend, I hope you didn't think I was mentally incapacitated. I was trying to speak slowly so you would understand my English with my accent. Did you find the coliseum?" 

Are we dreaming? Is our consciousness moving around at night against our will? Are all dreams projections? So many questions!

Signs that you might be experiencing this mind state? 
buzzing, humming, bells, fluttering, rapid heart rate, vibrating, temperature changes, shape changes as if you lost body boundaries.

For me, it always happens as I am waking or going to sleep - in that in between no man's land.

One thing that is interesting, however, is that  the experience differs from NDE (near-death experience) experiencers. They describe floating above, looking down, and seeing a light, and feeling free of the body and rather euphoric and loved.

In my experiences with projection, it is rather like remote viewing - I am in an environment I don't know and taking it all in. I don't feel particular free of human body or love and acceptance. 

To me, this very fact proves that we will not have those complete acceptance, unconditional love feelings until we are directed to the next realm of experience - other dimension - other world - heaven (whatever you like to refer to it as). 

If this were purely a brain function, then the sense of leaving one's body should have ignited the tunnel, the light, the feelings, the dead loved ones, but it doesn't.
