I am a beginner in Astral travel as I have yet to experience one (one that I clearly can remember). I think I have had one or two in my youth but I definitely can't remember for sure; those where of flying and ended with falling to the ground. What I can remember from them the vision was kind of foggy, like a grey mist that surrounded my vision and that I couldn't stop the falling.
Another occurrence was when I woke up early one morning and my bed shook, or at least I thought it did. I think now that it was me, in a pre-astral travel state.
I have taken a great interest in the subconscious and astral travel amongst many things the latest 2 years and I'm currently trying to achieve astral travel. At the moment I can go to focus 10 although it takes a while to do it and while I'm there I am trying to just be and will myself out of my body. I get the floating experiences which feels like I'm sinking or floating up or to the side and what not. I recently experienced pulsating waves on my forehead when I focused on that spot. What are these? Are these the vibrations that is typical before having an OOBE? Also, I'm wondering if I am doing this right. I'm thinking about whether I should try to fall asleep fully with just the intention to astral travel or if I should lay there in focus 10 and just will myself out. One method sounds like falling asleep and hoping for an OOBE and another sounds more like meditating myself out. What is the difference between these? Need some guidance please and by the way the relaxation is not the problem, I think it's more the concentration and to not let my mind chatter all the time.
Thank you <3
