Recently, I've noticed that a lot of the time it feels like I completely disconnect from my body. It's a bit difficult to explain but I'll try. The first time I noticed it, I was sitting on a couch and my head was on my left shoulder. I began to straighten upright and when I moved my head, it felt as if my head was still on my shoulder but "I" had moved out of my body. This happened again not too long ago. I am interested in astral projection and thought that this may be some form of it. Even today, several times I feel like I've been "somewhere else" and that my body's just there if you know what I mean. I thought that I couldn't project but my mother disagreed and said she had seen me on several occasions during the night watching over her, even though I hadn't left my room. After that, I had a very strange dream in which I projected. In the dream, my mother was helping me astral project myself. I was sitting on a couch and it wasn't working. I moved to the other side of the couch and told my mother that it wasn't working. She said it was strange for me to say that because when I moved another version of myself was in my original spot. Could anyone help me with this? I'm not quite sure if I'm "disconnecting" or if it's my imagination. Can you actually astral project while wide awake? Could there be some connection to the fact that I'm going into what I call a dry spell (when I don't see or experience spirits for a period of time)? I feel like there's a message that something's trying to tell me but I can't receive the message.
