I have been meditating for years and I thought I was strong enough to astral travel and I did. I had quite a number of successful astral projections but I have chosen three of my best experiences.
#1. I had been bedridden for three months because of a slip disc and I was quite bored and restless. I decided to experiment with astral traveling. One day I was woken up at 5 a.m. I have NO idea what could have caused me to wake up so early. So there I was, lying in bed thinking I should go to back to sleep when I thought it might be fun to try and go to my then-boyfriend's house and see what he was up to. So I focused on him and suddenly I found myself by his bedside. I climbed into his bed and laid down beside him. His alarm went off at 5:30 a.m. And he got out of bed and got ready for work. His mom came to see him off. I heard their entire conversation and I got into the car beside him while he headed to pick up his colleague. I could feel myself getting weak and I found myself back in my body. He happened to call me that evening and I repeated everything that happened that morning. He was so shocked and asked me how I knew. This is when I realized I could be anywhere I wanted.
#2. Years had gone by. I decided to pursue music. I was working with a friend on an album. One day some talk came up about OBE's and meditation and he challenged me to enter his house in one of my astral travel escapades. I readily agreed. That night through meditations I decided to go. Soon I found myself at the entrance of his house, I was surprised to see his house cloaked in black, almost foreboding and evil. I started to get nervous. I stepped in through the front door and I got a massive push back and something told me I couldn't enter. I tried the other entrance and that was the same thing. So I went around the house and all I could sense was evil. Later I found out that this guy's mom was evil and that was the evil protection around the house.
#3. One night I couldn't get sleep so I decided to go to my mom's room and see if I could wake her up just by astral traveling there. So I concentrated hard and soon I saw myself by her bedside. I reached out and touched her arm and said "Mom! Mom wake up!" I saw her stir and I was returned to my body. The next day while I was having coffee and reading the papers my mom sat at the table and tells me she had the most weird dream. So I asked her what it was. She went on to tell me that she dreamt that I woke her up the same way I did when I was unwell. I told her I actually did wake her up and that it was me but not in the body. I got a sound telling off after that but I thought it was so amusing.
I don't do this anymore because I don't get time to meditate that much thanks to life and other commitments but I will willingly help if anyone needs advice on this or guidance.
