Etheric Or Astral Projection?


I have a friend who visits me often, although he's never physically been anywhere near Australia in his life.

We have been friends for about 12 years but unfortunately due to circumstance we are unable to talk much these days, although I "feel" and sometimes see his spirit here with me.

He is very highly intuitive and spiritual with well developed skills.

He has often in the past picked up on my emotions and called me to ask what is wrong, so I know for sure he is not fake. I have spent much time with him "frolicking" in the next dimension.

He taught me that there was a difference in Astral and Etheric projection. Is it true that Astral projection is when your spirit leaves your body when its unexpected and that Etheric Projection is Astral travelling at will with complete control?

I have done this a few times with control, but often I find myself at my friend's side without actually wanting or knowing I was going there and have no control.

This seems to be happening to me more and more, with my spirits vision getting clearer and clearer each time.

Is it him calling my spirit to him or is it just random astral projection?

I have never felt like I "shouldn't' be there when I project, and sometimes I have noticed he is a little bit surprised at my "arrival" too.

I enjoy being at his side, but I don't want to be there if it is an intrusion at all.

If its him calling me to his side, then I guess it is ok, if not, am I accidently intruding in on him?

Truly it would be a bit embarrassing if I accidently projected to his side and he was on the toilet.

For years, I've had experiences with people I've never met, in places I've never been, though it feels like I've known these people and lived in these places forever, like I'm visiting old friends in an old home after many years.
Lately, I have been learning about etheric and astral projection. I have projected, aware that I have done so, but still need some practice. Do you think these are similar to your experiences, and would it be possible to experience them consceously?

I've had a bit of experience with soul ties and connections and recommend that people sever connections from past relationships as a way to tidy up their past. However, with soulmates you cannot break the connection I discovered. I oddly managed three in a row and the connection is strong and very different from other relationships - I know when they are thinking of me and can even know when they are going to call or send a message. I had past lives with all of them of course. From my understanding soulmates are from your soul family and you can have more than one - whereas, there is another type that is the other half of you in a twinflame sense. I have not met my twinflame as far as I know, so I can't confirm this for you at this time. It sounds to me that he may be a soulmate and at times because you connected through projection that you pull each other to one another. If you want a relationship with him on the physical level - not letting him connect this way is the best way to make it happen. They use it as a substitute for sorting out what they need to sort out in order to have a functional relationship with you - it is safer that committing to a relationship on the physical level. Basically, to have a relationship with a soulmate means complete vulnerability and for many they want it, but it is scary at the same time, so to make it safe they want to keep the connection without completely connecting. Just my experience though.

I have astral traveled into someone's living room before and found it very invasive. I got out quick. I have met people in the stars before also which was awesome. Astral travel is so unbelievable but I enjoy it very much. I go to Paris often and for years... And when I finally actually went there I walked around like I knew the place already.Yes, that toilet comment was hilarious. I have often thought that myself:).
You probably have a past life connection. I really don't know about the twin souls/soulmates though? Some people just have a connection or maybe past life issues that have to be resolved. Try to get a past life regression through hypnosis that might help.

There are two ways to find out. First is to meditate and slowly let yourself go back in time and also think of him when you do so. Unfortunately this process takes a lot of practice, patience and time. The quicker other way is to see a past life regressionalist. This person will guide you through meditation to show you what your past lives were. You may even meet your spirit guide too. He/she will be able to tell you if he is a soulmate or a twin ray. That is wonderful how you can leave your body to escape pain and great distraction.

To Eagleclaw

Yes, we are very close on a spiritual plane and have often spoken of "Twin Rays" I am unsure though if that is close to who/what we are.
I dreamt of this person long before we started speaking and the first time I saw his face I almost passed out as he was the exact person I had seen in my dreams since I was a kid.
So perhaps we are soulmates, I am never going to be 100% sure on the subject.
How would I truly know if I have been with him in a past life, how does one project to the past? And how can I share such an experience with him?
We really don't speak much anymore, the only "contact" between us is through projection, mostly on his part as I'm a "tad" rusty with this these days as I have a lot of things happening in my life that cause me great distraction.

To leonward
Yes, it can be scary at times, especiallly when your young and its all so unexpected. The important thing to remember is just to relax your breathing and enjoy such experiences, so few of us get to know how beaurtiful it is to project ourselves as we are deemed strange or crazy if we'e to openly discuss it to fsmily friends etc. I have found that projection is a nice short time away from my physical body as I endure many pains in the physical plane.
Relax and enjoy the time away from your physicsl body, your spirit will always return so nothing bad could ever happen to you on the physical plane.
Hope this help:)

Hi there, it can be a bit scary sometimes not knowing where you are or where you've been, but just the other day, I was in the bath tub, took a little nap and the next thing I know I was travelling some place, I had full control... I could hear the traffic, feel the air, then, my brother comes knocking on the bathroom door, and then I could 'feel' myself being pulled back, I woke up exactly where I dozed off. In the tub, just think I could've drowned. Lol

It seems to me that the both of you are spiritually connected. Some people share their lives with others many times. They are soulmates. You and him have probably lived many past lives together. And, when I was younger I would astral travel with my friend at times. She would just pop up when I was flying. The toilet comment was very funny. Hope this helps.
