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".
