I had woke up this morning around 3:00 and I couldn't go back to sleep then when I began to feel very tired I went to sleep. Then before I knew it I was sleep paralysed and I began feeling vibrations going through my body I also heard a noise that was like a horn or train. Then I felt like my body was being lifted then I saw like a creepy shadow bird but I was still in my bed and every time I would look down or blink it will get closer I also saw a mask but it wasn't really creepy because the mask look actually like a character of a game I been playing. Then like 10 seconds later before the bird could get even closer I was able to move.
I continued to stay up because I was afraid this was going to happen again and then I drifted off to sleep and this time I was getting visions both pleasant and creepy, I also began hearing a peaceful flute playing but it would only last for 5 seconds then my favorite song began playing. Then I was finally able to go to sleep
Another question about astral projection. Have you ever looked in the mirror what did you see. I heard from people that when they looked in the mirror they were shorter than usual or when they looked in the mirror it wasn't even them it was some sort of fictional character or even a creepy clown. I also heard that you can travel through the mirror to a different area. What different area is that?
I want to be able to astral project soon to see and do amazing things and possible meet up with a love one or even my twin flame but I'm too afraid because of the bad entities and creepy things that lure around the astral plane. How can I be able to protect myself and project without began frightened?
