Real Psychic Experiences

Unintentional Astral Projection?


This is my first time posting a story. I have been reading this site for some time, and it was where I finally began to understand my emphatic abilities.

I've always been able to feel others and could sense things that didn't seem normal to me. It all used to be so overwhelming. I grew up in a family of skeptics which left me feeling alone and crazy. This led to years of medication and therapy for depression which I later realized I didn't have. Eventually I managed to suppress or at least dull down everything and try to be "normal". That somewhat worked until about two years ago.

I pretty much ignored it when things started occurring again. About a year ago, I started meditating with the intention of controlling my temper, which was something I had only done occasionally when younger. That seemed to trigger things. The empathy came back and I embraced it once I learned what it was.

Strange things followed. I began seeing auras, having occasional visions (many have come true), lucid dreaming, somehow knowing what's going to happen, and sensing, seeing, and sometimes communicating with spirits. It feels like I have finally woken up to a world I didn't believe existed.

Sorry to go on forever with background, but I felt it may help understand what's happening.

Eventually I tried astral projection. I was successful twice when trying and had multiple times where I felt like I got out of my body for a few minutes but couldn't see.

After not trying for a few months I started feeling like I was doing it unintentionally while wide awake. Most of the time it was partial like only my arms or legs seemed to separate. Although twice I was floating above myself watching me for a couple of minutes. Both times I was at work, standing and still managing to do my job.

This really has me confused as I don't understand how it's even possible to still be completely functioning while not really there. Sometimes I feel it about to happen and really have to fight it.

Even though I kind of enjoy the feeling I need to figure out what is going on so I can learn to control it. I keep worrying what would happen if it occurs at the wrong time. I'm afraid it could be dangerous.

Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated. Just knowing this happens to someone else would help me feel better.

You're welcome. You could try talking to him since you already know he's there. For me I found it easiest at first when I was sitting in bed at night drinking my tea. Usually I'm at my most relaxed then.
And I'm 31.

Thank you Lunicorn, I love your advice and love to hear of your experiences as well. I think you are lucky to have themselves appear to you and I think I should maybe wait until they approach me. I think I should let them know that I would like to meet them and then just wait, if they do not appear, then I will respect that and will see them at home in any case. I have sensed one with me all my life and feel love and concern coming from him. I am better now, thank you. May I ask how old you are. My age doesn't bug me and never try and hide it, I just relate to people better when I know their age, If I can't see them. Hope to chat to you soon again. 😁

Thank you for your comments Ann-Lee. I'm sorry you had to go through that and I hope all is well now. I feel the people you saw could be your guides but I can't say for sure. I'm farfrom being an expert on these things. I just do a lot of research on my experiences and have been lucky enough to find a few things that work for me.
I didn't really try to find my guides. I guess when they felt the time was right they chose to show themselves. I had been struggling with my temper at work and started searching for ways to control it. This led me to Buddhism and meditation. I didn't become Buddhist but I incorporated some of it into my own beliefs.
The first guide to reveal himself came one day when I was relaxing before work. I was outside trying to mentally prepare myself for what I knew was going to be a rough day. When I looked up at the sky I saw something that I just knew deep down was a sign. It was like a perfect moment where I knew everything would be fine. Eventually I started to notice a presence around me constantly and realized I had felt it many times throughout my life but never paid attention. I realized he was that voice in my head that has always given me advice. I used to often see a man in my dreams, but he was always in the shadows. I always felt a loving feeling from him but never knew who he was. After I started communicating with him, he no longer hid in these dreams.
The second guide revealed himself one day when I was having trouble with an important decision. I heard a second voice in my head reassuring me. I asked the first guide about this and he told me who it was. I still don't know much about this one but I am slowly learning about him.
The third one I think is more a guardian angel. I was having problems with a negative or evil presence in my apartment for awhile. I felt like it was attacking me, draining my energy, giving me headaches and just making me feel horrible. One night when it was really bad I felt a hand on my shoulder and just felt safe. Later she spoke to me, reassuring me. I can't explain why I feel she's an angel but there's something different about her. Like the second one I feel like I barely know her but feel her with me all the time.
I've read about meditations to help you meet your guides. I've only once tried and that was quite a while before I saw mine. All I saw in the meditation was the first guide hiding in the shadows like in my dreams. I keep thinking about trying another but I feel they'll show me more when the time is right.
I'm sorry I can't really offer much advice but if you have any questions I'll try to help.

Lunicorn - I just joined this site yesterday and you commented on my story. I decided to read your profile, it is interesting and I only realize now after reading all these stories that there are so many of us out there and feel very normal now. I almost died 2 years ago, due to massive blood loss and I had a near death experience (I think, I did not leave my body yet), I saw at least 7 figures standing above me (the figures were very tall, but I could not see their faces, but felt a wonderful sense of being wanted) I could feel they loved me. I believe some where my spirit guides and others maybe from my past lives. How would I find out, how did you find out. I would love to hear more about your story. Can I tell you something strange, every story I read on this site, I know straight away if its male or female who wrote it without even looking and with some people you will never know as there is just a made up name for the site, I find it strange and am sure you experience the same. Well with my name you can see I'm female, but others could be both... Love to hear more from you. 😁

I have the same problem of falling asleep most of the time when I try. That's part of why it was so confusing. It's not like I've mastered projection. I actually feel far from it.
The other day I came across bilocation which seems to fit what I've been going through except I have never went more than a few feet from my body and have not been visible to anyone. I'm now wondering if I possibly have an ability there that I'm just barely tapping into.
As for the whole people meeting in the astral, I'd most likely fall asleep and miss the scheduled time 😆
Thank you for taking the time to try to help me. I really appreciate it.

actually I think dats even cooler than normal astral projection because when I attempt to, I usually just end up falling sleeping... When your already awake this allows you to be fully conscious through these experiences and that exactly what I want... Don't worry about it as your in full control and you'll be notified when your body ends up walking into a wall 😆 just make sure you break free immediately if your somewhere dangerous like on the street. As for the co-astral projection, it would be awesome if a large group were to schedule a time for projection... Meet up in maybe a certain location like the eiffil tower and travel together, not only learning,solving,experiencing but protecting one another... PEACE 😆

Thanks for commenting, Marcus. I've read some articles that say it is possible for people to meet in the astral although I haven't experienced it myself. It would be pretty cool though. I'd possibly find answers then lol.
As for this experience I keep having, I wish I could find a name for it. Everything I've read about astral projection talks about sitting or laying down entering a meditative state. I'm not even sure that's what I'm experiencing since it sometimes happens while I'm walking around. I feel so confused sometimes.

im 19 and I'm going through the same exept for mid-day projections because my heads moves to fast to relax, tho I did affect a real life event the other day... But yes I too was depressed whole life until I realised I AM a super happy person, our only problem is the problems of the world we find easy to correct, if allowed... Keep it up, were going through this together:D that makes me wonder, could every or few astral projecters meet up whilst out in the astral plain. Would be really cool? 🤔 😆

Thank you, crazy14. It helps knowing someone else feels these things all the time.
I recently discovered two, possibly three guides with me. I say possibly three because the one seems to be my guardian angel which I'm not sure if that is more a type of guide or a separate thing. I guess it just depends on what label you want to give it 😊
As for the danger, I'm not sure if I was detailed enough. I don't fear astral projection itself, but worry about it happening at strange times. I've had it happen while working, and it's not like my job is really dangerous, but if I'm not paying attention I could get injured. When it happens I'm still able to function continuing what I was doing but it's like I'm in a daze. It reminds me of someone sleep walking.

I had a very similar background, my parents were always extremely skeptic of anything psychic related, which became very difficult for me growing up as I tried to make sense of stuff that kept happening in my life which I had always been taught wasn't possible and was a sign I was going crazy (hence my name.) However it wasn't until I finally accepted myself for what I was and what I could do that things became a lot easier. You would be right in saying that it is a new world that you didn't know existed and there is far, far more to it than that. As for me it is a near constant and permanent state as I feel others emotions and thoughts everywhere I go. Astral projection is something that can be dangerous if not done correctly as it tends to invite bad spirits. However if you allow your guide to help you it shouldn't be a problem. If you don't have a guide, I work on finding out if you have one first as it will make you far far stronger and you will learn a lot more and unlock hidden potential that you didn't know you had.
However I want to point out that what you are doing is not necessarily evil even though it can be used for evil should you so choose. It comes from god as a gift.

Thank you for your advice. I try to avoid suppressing it now, and am trying now to try figure out how to make my abilities stronger. I feel like I have many of them, but just in small amounts.

Good Morning! I have been into psychic matters for approx. 60 years and you are one of the most psychic persons I have ever come across. Never suppress it.
It is a God given gift. If you suppress it you may loose it. What a tragedy that would be.
Even though your spirit has left your body it is still in control and if startled or endangered will return
in a split second. Only when the silver cord is severed (as in death) the spirit and earthly body will be permanently separated.
I hope that I have assisted in some way.
