Real Psychic Experiences

Accidental Visits?


I have been raised in a very scientific environment, where spiritual and psychic existence was never thought or mentioned. However, some recent experiences of mine have left me extremely curious to whether or not I possess such spiritual abilities.

It all started about a year ago when I was just starting to see a new guy. We talked on the phone until very late at night, and I remember not being able to get him out of my head as I was falling asleep. The next day, he told me he woke up a couple hours later and could have sworn he saw me lying next to him. He said he was so sure that it was real that he was able to just stare at my face for a long time, but when he reached out to make sure, it was in fact nothing. When he told me this I did not think anything of it, of course.

Months later, a close friend of mine who had just moved out of town mentioned a similar thing to me. She said she woke up in the middle of the night and saw me lying beside her! She said my facial features were so clear that he just starred at my face for a long time waiting for her eyes to adjust. But when she reached out, it was just a pillow. Now I was really beginning to wonder what was going on.

After I talked about this to someone, they suggested I may be astral traveling at night. This seemed quite possible since I remember thinking of those people quite a lot around the time they 'saw me' in their rooms at night. However, as I read more about astral experiences, it seems that people tend to dream of flying around or at least dream at all. I almost never dream! I suppose that does not rule it out though.

So after this had come to my attention, a more recently startling event happened to me this time. I went to bed one night, and as I usually do, I very quickly fell into a very deep sleep. Approximately two hours after I fell asleep I recall hearing a loud bang, which was so loud I remember realizing its volume even though I was only barely woken up by it. I remember I was not alarmed by the noise, but was wondering what it was as I crept back into consciousness. In my aloof state, all of a sudden my entire body began to vibrate. My entire body felt the way one's foot feels as the blood re-enters it after being asleep. This feeling scared me so much I jumped out of bed and turned the light on. I then noticed my door was shut (it never is). The loud noise had been identified, but until very recently I thought this was a ghostly experience. Was that me astral traveling again? Since I am so uninformed with things like this, I would love any advice or knowledge that can be offered.

Also, chakra stones make my hand go numb. Do these types of situations mean I have psychic abilities? Or spiritual? I'm not sure what this mean about me.

So I was sleeping on my bed and I was like half asleep I don't know if I was dreaming or if it was real but I felt something on my forehead, it felt like something had kissed me exactly in the middle of my forehead.

here's a few methods you could try to remember dreams.

-Start a dream journal. It might sound silly (since you can't remember the dreams), but what it does is sends a message to your brain saying "Hey, what just happened was so important I wrote it down". Eventually, you will start to have a better dream recall.

-When you wake up, do not move your body at all for about a minute. During this time, note any feelings you have, or any images that you can remember.

NOTE: This same method could be used to try and trigger an astral projection, or lucid dream.

-Before you go to sleep, read a book about dreams, astral projection/travel, etc. What happens is that while your start to fall asleep, your mind will still be trying to digest the reading, and you may dream about what you read.

-Ask to remember your dream before you go to sleep. Again, it may sound silly, but ask that some figure, be it God, a spirit guide, an angel, or your own conscious, allow you to have a total recall of your dream.

-The Brainwash/Affirmation method:

Pick a time frame that you wish to do this; I recommend only for the night, because it gets the name "Brainwash" method for a reason.

Going off of my time frame (before bed), say or write to yourself something like "I will remember my dreams in the [morning]".

Say it over and over again, until you either fall asleep, or the only thing on your mind is that affirmation. It may take a couple days to do it.

The fun part with this method is that you can use it for other areas. But be warned, do it too much and you'll find yourself constantly saying the phrase you used all day long.

There's a starting point for remembering your dreams.

It looks like whoever you talked to got it right; I'd also say that you are astral traveling.

Not sure how much research you did on the topic, but the noises you heard, and that tingling feeling are called vibrations.

As for you closing the door in your astral voyages, there is some debate as to whether or not someone could do that. If you can learn to control it, then that would make an interesting experiment.

In terms of visiting your friend: sometimes an OBE (same thing as astral travel) will happen involuntarily when something is on your mind. In your case, you were focused on your friend, which gave you a "destination" to travel to.

I recommend that you look up these authors (or read their books):
-Robert Monroe (one of the best, and spent time experimenting with OBEs. He also created the Monroe Institute

-Robert Bruce (also spent a good deal of time experimenting with OBEs and published the book Astral Dynamics, which is a great reference).

Both authors have plenty of methods you can use to try and have a controlled experience.

Hope this clears some up.
