I posted a few months ago about my experiences, which ultimately told me that I was, in fact, astral traveling. It always scared me, but with the help of all of you who responded, I've let go of my fear and just "went" when my astral body wanted to. I've noticed that when I give myself "permission," that is, when I go to sleep and say to myself, "I'm going to travel tonight," it is easier to just go. There's really only one trip that I can fully remember, and it was beautiful. I was in space. It was cold and dark, but I was surrounded by stars, and there were some beautiful colors of deep, dark purple, green and blue. It was gorgeous. There was another one, and I can't remember it exactly, as in my dream, I was lying on top of my boyfriend's arm and clutching it quite tightly, as I was a little scared. When I returned/woke up, however, I was lying on my back, as was he, nowhere near each other.
Now, last night was a different story. My boyfriend is out of state for work, 1500 miles away, and I couldn't sleep, nor could he. He asked me to try to travel to him, but I didn't think I could because I was so exhausted. Here it was 4am and I had to be up at 7. Immediately upon getting into bed and closing my eyes, however, I saw a flash of light, which signals that I am going to travel. As the vibrations started, I felt something for the first time ever (and this started happening to me 10 years ago) - I actually felt my astral body sit up. Of course, this being the first time I've felt this, it startled me and I forced it back down. This happened several times until I then felt what I described in my last post - hands all over my lower body, pulling me. Now this is something that I really have a problem with. Someone responded that it was perhaps my spirit guides helping me to move out of my body, but it really scares me. A couple years ago I described this to a psychic friend of mine, who told me to NEVER let anything pull me like that. So I am confused! That one trip that I can recall was so beautiful, and I need reassurance that this pulling is okay, because I would like to enjoy my experiences.
One more thing while I'm on the subject. Frequently I will feel my bed vibrate. I'm fully awake, I live in the country nowhere near trains, and no real reason for it to vibrate. I also felt this when I lived in the city. Thank you all for reading.
