Astral Projection Or Lucid Dream?


Recently, I decided to take a nap, but before doing so I remembered a couple of lucid dreams I had and how great they were. I thought I'd give it a shot and see if I could make it happen again, but what I felt this time was very different. I cleared my mind and focused on controlling everything. As I began to doze off, I realized I was very alert, and my mind began to feel as though it was stretching or separating from me, though not completely.

If any kind of noise distracted me, I started to come back and lose the feeling. Eventually, I focused more and fell asleep or so I thought. The best way I can describe it is like a wormhole. It was as if I was being snatched to different places, but somehow places I wanted to be. I saw numbers on a paper, but I don't exactly know what they were for or what they all were. "5, 6, 18, 22,?..." After that I'd be rocketed off into another place. Unfortunately, all I can remember is the numbers, and what happened before I woke up.

The last place I went was to my bedroom. I wanted to see myself, and there I was. Asleep. I touched my finger and it felt so strange. As if I touched someone else, yet I could feel it? It's indescribable. I then proceeded to come back, because I felt like I was done. I woke up thinking I had been asleep for hours, but it had only been a few minutes. Later that day I got a light headache.

Is this astral projection or just a dream that I was completely in control of? One thing I should mention is that when I was being snatched around in whatever "wormhole" I was experiencing, it felt very similar to when a shadow person was once on top of me. Instead of it feeling like my soul was being pulled out, however, my head or mind felt as if it were being stretched and extended. I tried to do this again that night, but it wasn't quite the same experience, and the feeling wasn't as strong or vivid. It's more like I was just very alert while I "slept".

Hello banqq, the numbers 5,6,18,22... Are probably lottery numbers. Did you ever give it a thought?

Thanks! It's such a strange, yet satisfying journey into all of this. Being successful at it gives me so much joy.

You did indeed astrally project. Its impressive, I can astral project, it takes lots of energy and willpower. If you do sense anything bad while in an astral projection remember that you have an internal energy, simply will light and try to come back to yourself.

Thank you for the advice. It's something I try to keep in mind, but I wish I had remembered it when I was attacked. I kept yelling "no" and it eventually stopped pulling whatever it was pulling out of me. It wasn't a good feeling.
I've been trying to do this projection thing again these past couple of nights, but I'm having trouble. I'm so good at focusing and clearing my mind. It takes a bit of work, but then I can feel it starting. That pulling sensation. But then I get lost and my mind wanders. It takes a few tries to bring the sensation back.
It also doesn't help having roommates who constantly distract me.
But last night I just ended up falling asleep and dreaming, though vividly. I want to say something besides a dream happened, but I can't remember.: (

I used to be able to astral project but I can't anymore, I think it is due to stress and anxiety. When I used to astral project I remember I used to feel like my soul was pulling away from my body. If you encounter any shadow people or anything giving you anxiety imagine a bright divine light projecting on top of you and ask your higher self and/or spirit guides to protect you.
