I'm new to this site and this is just one question of the many I have. I'm very curious as to what people will say. Also, just so you know I've never tried to astral project, I'm not even sure how to. I'd love to learn though.
Alright, so I was laying on the couch in my living room resting. I was in that state where you're not fully asleep but still aware of your body. Then, all of a sudden I felt myself stretch my "arm" down through the couch. At the same time I still felt my real arm curled up against my chest. I tried sitting up and felt like I was slipping out of a tight bathing suit. Then I started floating up towards the ceiling. Again, I still felt my body curled up on the couch even though I wasn't in it. As I was floating I tried opening my eyes, but when I attempted it, it felt as if I was "sucked" back into my body.
Was I experiencing astral projection? I've never had the experience of feeling my body yet not being in it. At the same time I felt like I had little control over what was happening to me. While I was floating I tried directing where I was going and didn't get very far. Usually when stuff happens like that to me, I have a hard time controlling it. That is another thing I want to know, why I have trouble completely controlling whatever is going on.
