Inconsistant Results During Astral Projection


So I want to start off giving a little backdrop of my experiences and how things started out for me and my astral projections.

My first experience with astral projection started around when I was 19 going on 20. This was a terrifying experience because I didn't know that I was even astral projecting but also my body was in "sleep paralysis". As a result I was completely conscious of everything around me but unable to move and heard whispering around me.

It was from this initial experience I began to have these periodical conscious episodes (that's what I like to refer to them as). It became so frequent I would that it happened 3 to 4 times a month. Like I said it was a terrifying experience to have no control over your body and hearing things when you shouldn't be hearing anything at all. Gradually I became able to gain use of my voice enough to make at noise which would wake my partner up and in turn they would wake me up.

Finally I got tired of the situation and began researching the topic of sleep paralysis. This to my surprise was a lot more common than I thought. Then I came across a site that said something along the lines of "Sleep Paralysis or Astral Projection?" Of course my interest was peaked so I began to research the new topic and found some people used the sleep paralysis as way of experimenting with projecting, this intrigued me.

For the last year I've been experimenting with what I learned about projecting and have been trying to put it to use. And I've so far have had varying result. Sometimes I remain stuck in conscious in my body. Sometimes I'm able to remember a whole projection other times I can only remember people, entities, or part of my astral projection. And the funny thing is I keep coming across two people. They keep trying to tell me there name's as if they need me to remember them. But the moment I "wake" (if you can call it that with still being conscious) from the projection I can't seem to remember their name's. It's like the feeling anyone would have when they try to remember something and say "it's on the tip of my tongue".

So my questions are:

Does anyone have tips/pointers on how to retain more memory when Astral projecting? And also tips on how to achieve a more successful projection. Because I have a feeling I've been "astral traveling" subconsciously.

Should I continue to pursue trying to find out who these 2 people are that are trying to give me there name's?

I would appreciate whatever feed back if possible, thank you.

Robert Bruce wrote a pretty good book on Astral Projection - it used to be offered for free online, but the economy has changed I guess:/ his opinions as to what is what may vary from person to person, but his explanations and techniques may be of some help. It's one of the books I collected over the years, as I'm also a natural projector (ie. Go to go to bed then 'Oh no, not this again';) )

Thanks for the advice about coming up with a plan or agenda. I'm sure once I make this change I'll be better focused.

Also I find it interesting that these two people I've been coming across could possibly be friends or guide because so far I've been really cautious when I find myself in the presents of others. The reason being that I've read some entities and people can be hostile. But these two people I haven't got that sense or feeling but I do feel like I'm familiar with them like I should know them. So I'll probably seek them out as part of my new agenda.

And thanks once again AnneV, I'll take your advice and put it to good use.

The tip I've read about and use myself is to say very strongly "Clarity now!" this sharpens up the conscious mind which is ever trying to slip back into a dream state.

Those two people may either be your guides or friends from another dimension. I know this myself because I often project and "remember" in utter detail those people from another dimension. I know them as well as I know the people here on earth but as I slip back into this physical brain pan, that unlocalized memory starts to fade, unless I really concentrate to bring it back into this dimension.

If you want, you can read many of my own astral projection articles on my other webpage, You're doing very well in that you're familiar with the catatonic state and overall elements of projection. Some of these articles are going to give important tips such as, what are your goals and plans? If you are just blindly projecting, you may want to come up with an agenda. Where do you want to go and who do you want to see? It sharpens things up considerable if you're focused. I always have a list of things I want to accomplish (like going to the moon for example). Then, when you project, you can sharply focus your conscious mind and accomplish your goals, but only if you have them, you know?

These people will find you. Or if you want to be more proactive, all any of us need is desire and intent. Ask to see them and they will come.

Hope this helps.

Have a great day.
