Was It Astral Projection?


I have read before that if you are sleeping and you awake suddenly with that feeling that you kind of slammed back into your body, that you may have experienced an astral projection or had an out of body experience. A few days ago this may have happened to me. I remember trying to fall asleep and before I knew it, I felt so peaceful. I was sitting on this bench somewhere in like a garden. I could feel the sun on me and it felt so good.

It was as if I was standing behind myself though because for some reason, I was putting my hair into a ponytail and had on a black shirt. Like I was watching myself from behind. I felt so peaceful and alive. It was almost as if my soul was at its highest point. I can not describe really in words how I felt, just amazing. Happy, no fear, no pain, no worries. But then it was as if I was fully conscious of this because I seriously thought to myself, where am I? Did I astrally project to heaven or something?

Then, as soon as I thought that I awoke suddenly with that heavy feeling as if I was slammed back into my body. Was that an astral projection?

Since that day, I have been trying to get that same feeling back. I can still remember how amazing I felt and picture the whole scene. Should I try meditating to try to do that again?

this has happened to me a lot some times it happens more than once in a day. When it happens more than once in a day it is usually the same place but with different people around me. When it wakes me up it usually knocks me out of bed. Hope you find your answers. 😊

In my years of study, astral projection is the unconscious mind projecting what you want to feel, when you awake it is the conscious mind bringing you too reality. Great story. For my views or any questions I am happy to answer, contact me at [at]

Hi my name is stacy I am 16 years old. I have had no psychic or spiritual experiences but for 2 or more years now I have felt really curious and drawn to finding out psycic things and have always wanted to start classes or something to try get in touch with my psycic abilitys... However I haven't done that yet and I have been recently reading about astral projection and think it sounds amazing but I was wondering if to start focusing on trying out astral projection I would have to try out smaller not as advanced things first it woul be great if someone could help me. Thanks ❤

I don't really know much about astral projections. I can remember kind of feeling like that before. I was sleeping. I wasn't really seeing anything but there was just this amazing essence. I felt so at peace with myself. It was as if I had more so joined a universal essence then been to "Heaven" or "The Other Side" or anything. It was great. Then, suddenly, I woke up. My heart was beating really fast when I awoke, as well. I really don't know what happened to you. I geuss it could be an astral projection.

I have no idea. I just know that I've gone flying. Then I heard the term astral projection. It's comforting that other people have these. It certainly sounds like, to me, you went on a journey. It also sounds like you were allowed a nice place. That's comforting too. I think, if we're messing up, the place might not be as nice. I once saw a garden. I now feel myself lifting out and use to feel wind. Now I just go. I don't want them all the time, honestly. A person could get too involved is my feeling if they go too much. But they do feel special.

I've had that happen to me its really weird but mine happened in my room. Then there was this scream and it all went dark and it was like I was stuck in a black tunnel. Finally I woke up but hearing this scream in my ear.

I didn't feel heavy feeling. I just was confused on what happened.
