Spirit Leaving Body Feeling


I'm brand new to this site, and just wanted to share this story and maybe you guys can give me some tips And help me out with what I've been feeling.

About 2 months ago I was in school sitting at my desk, I was taking notes like normal when I had a sudden feeling. It was like I was being pulled out of my body but I was still Seeing and hearing and everything normal. It felt like being pulled all through me out my head. I was startled and kind of jolted back and it was over.

I dismissed it and though I was falling asleep or something like that. Now maybe a week later I felt the same thing but again I was startled and came right back. It's hard to explain and I admit I am probably late doing this and should have searched for help right away. I'm not sure what I would say it felt like, but I would say my conscience self or spirit or something was leaving my body. It wasn't a strong pull but it wasn't like a slow drift either. It was sudden and maybe only lasted a second because I jolted back.

Now I have fallen asleep in class or almost done it. And it was not like that feeling of about to fall alseep but waking up suddenly. I was not tired when it happened and the feeling was much different. It was the same both times it has happened and the two times didn't feel like any falling asleep I have ever felt.

I haven't felt this since then but recently tonight I tryed kind of sitting with my eyes closed taking deep breaths. It was just a guess at maybe I could feel this again. It made me calm and cleared my mind but the feeling did not return. Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this? Do you know what it is? Thank you for any help you might be able to give me.

Nice job, Drakoreo. What a great description!

Sleep paralysis only happens if you awaken right out of your REM sleep. That is when your body is essentially paralyzed in sleep. Not so in other stages of sleep. But as Drakoreo suggests, you can get to that state through meditation.

Thanks, Drakoreo for that great description!

You sound like you are making progress, staying awake is one of the trickiest parts.

You can try sitting back, or laying on your back, rather than your side. For some reason, sleeping on the back triggers sleep paralysis better, which is what you are aiming to do.

The sleep paralysis is what causes the "tingles/vibrations" it also makes you go numb, it litterally "disconnects" you from all your physical senses and control, you lose hearing, vision, and also feeling. Your body becomes paralysed, and some people cannot move at all right when they wake up from this paralysis.

Your body does this every time you sleep, you are just trying to do it while remaining concious so you can astral project (OBE) lucidly.

Basically, let yourself let go of your body, and let your body let go of you. Focus your concentration 100% on how you will exit, visual it, expirience it in your head, and think about what you want to do when you succeed, this will help you keep focus.

As your body begins to go numb, your arms/hands should be the first to go. When you no longer feel your arms/hands (you won't even be able to tell where they are), try moving your astral fingers (it will feel like your physical fingers usually do, but now they will feel like pure energy, like your fingers but without the body, really neat feeling.)

Then try making fists (ensure not to accidently move your real fists, you can feel the difference, allow the connection to your body to fade, I find it helpful to say in my head "it's ok body, you can sleep now. No harm will befall you.")

Then try lifting your arms (once you are completely unattatched) focus on the sensations of your spirit disconnecting and maybe let yourself begin to "drift" (it feels like swaying/rocking or falling) even let the sensations increase & begin to carry you away. All while do not lose focus on your goal to project, even though you may be tempted to begin dreaming (you may start to see stories or visuals happening in your head), remind yourself of how you want to project and what you will do once you do it, enjoy the process.

When the point comes you are barely on the edge of being conscious and you no longer sense your body, use your exit.

*side note: If your heart rate goes up or you feel anxious before exiting, relax and wait, this happens occassionally, it just means the body has woke slightly from worry or excitement, wait and relax, it will wade out, then try again.

Happy travels!

Atleast your first few attempts your body should feel really "heavy" like an elephant has been sitting on you, this is a sign of the paraylsis, it means progress. This process usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.

Who knows though, maybe you'll get it the first time, wouldn't surprise me;)

Oreomaster, try it sitting up, or in a reclining chair. I actually had my only projection experience when I was awakening from a nap. I felt myself near the ceiling but there was such a strong buzzing feeling that I became instantly afraid and instantly zoomed back into my body, waking up very startled knowing what had just happened. It is like it was yesterday, and it was in 1989.

I am glad there are more experienced projectors here to help you.

Just an update: I've been trying to astral project since I posted this. I've gotten close I think because I have felt weird and kind of dizzy. I haven't had the vibrations yet though. I understand that this is a really hard thing to do and it takes some people years. My main problem is that I fall asleep getting into the trance state. Any suggestions to help with that?

Hey Oreomaster:)
I agree with Hecate, it soundss like your astral body/spirit may have been spontaneously trying to project, this is probably a sign you can achieve astral projection (OBE) quite easily, if that is someting you want to persue. As a projector, firstly don't concern too much about the entities on the other side, the astral realms are heavily looked after by very caring spirits, they will not let real harm befall you. Secondly, your astral body is connected to you via a "silver cord" or "silver lining" it will also snap you back into your body when needed, which is probably what you expirienced as that jolt in class.

I suggest you join the forum:

It's an exellent information center and community for OBEs, it is very diverse with many perspectives and many expirienced astral projectors who are happy to offer you guidance

Many people have elaborate rituals they do. Everything is about your intent. When you focus intently on something, that helps it manifest. You can simply affirm that you are protected, your body is protected, your spirit is protected. Or, you can "ask". I know I have help from the other side, call it what you will. I just ask them to help protect me. I also surround myself in a bright egg. Only love can enter and leave (that makes me keep my crap to myself, Hope this helps.

I have done a lot of research after posting this and I have tryed to separate using the rope technique, but haven't been able to. I was close one night but I got scared and stopped. That night I had trouble not going in to the astral. Several times I snapped awake because I relized I was falling asleep and my mind was staying awake. What kind of protection do I need before I go in?

Oreomaster, have you googled 'astral projection'? It sounds like your energy is spontaneously trying to do this. Check it out, and read about controlling it. Be careful as you meet other energies when you are 'away' from your body. And leaving your body unattended without protection can also include risk. So, my biggest recommendation is to learn solid self-protection first. Then, explore this. It can be a great gift, and you can use it for the good of many if you choose. Best to you.
