A Struggle With Astral Projecting


Just like a lot of people on here, I need some answers or help. You see, I've recently become interested in astral projecting. I did a bit of research, reading a few methods, reading people's stories, etcetera, etcetera. Please keep in mind that since I was just a small baby I always had some sort of ability to see ghosts and aura.

I read that people are having a lot of trouble with astral projecting and how it took them years or weeks to even reach the state where you feel like you're on a rollercoaster or something like that. Being determined to have an out of body experience, I immediately tried it that night.

To my surprise I did pretty well. Maybe a bit too well. Being thirteen I got some crazy thought, got anxiety, lost my focus and went right to s

A few days later I read more stories and experiences. I read how I had absolutely nothing to worry about, but I also read about people being 'attacked' by something. I tried again. I realized that the amount of time it took me took relax my body and create vibrations had shortened a lot. I began to slightly feel dizzy. Thinking I was having a headache I quit for the night.

As the days passed I noticed I could see the spirits in my house more frequently. I also noticed seeing my surroundings weirdly. Right now I see it. I guess it looks like waves or aura, but it doesn't have any color to it.

Anyways, one night I tried it again. After a while I finally got that feeling many people talked about. The rollercoaster feeling. I freaked out, thought I was dying (I know I'm weird.), and have not done it ever since

This was on my fourth or third try. Isn't that WAY too fast? My attempts were scattered throughout the month too. Is something wrong? For me, it's pretty scary. I just want to have an experience that isn't so frightening.

Thank you all for the helpful comments and advice! I feel better after getting some insight on this. I think I'll try it again soon.

We have a cord that bounds us to our bodies? I did not know that. It sounds so interesting...

[at] Cattydee Thank you, if I have any questions about this I'll be sure to ask you first.

Not only living things have auras. Rocks, water, wood, and other things have auras too. They are just very very subtle. And I believe what youre seeing is subtle energy. Many people after astral projecting or transmuting find themselves very in tune with subtle frequencies and energies. It appears to be moving yet takes no form or color? Then its likely to be energy. Honestly in the astral realm you are safe. Like moon said, you can't be possessed by anything because we are attached to our bodies with the unbreakable silver cord. (Until we pass, that is.) What you experience in the astral realm is created by you. It seems as though youre experiencing your own fear. Personally Id say jump right in and feel free to explore in safety. But its important to dispel any negative energy before you attempt to leave the physical world. All that said, its sad to see someone scared while having an OBE, its an experience to cherish. Youre very lucky.:)

i don't think that is possible to have a spirit posses your body...i've been reading a lot about astral projection and tried it a few times, tough I got scared and stopped trying XD. Anyway your body is connected to your soul by a silver cord, and it can't be broken. When it will break it means that you have died, but that is when your time comes. No spirit can harm you, since you have complete control over your soul and body, especially in the astral plane. So if you want to tell a spirit to go away or tell it that it can't hurt you, it will not do anything and go away most likely. Also, if you want to have a safer astral projection, meaning you won't meet any spirits or demons (like I did when I had an astral projection WITHOUT wanting to -.-) you can pray and form a shield of light. Think only about good things when astral projecting and youll be fine:) nobody can harm you without your consent.

Well first of all there are many people that have OBE's without trying to and so its not very strange to be able to do it on your first try. It's probably because you have a stronger spiritual connection that you can be able to have one without much effort. Also I wouldn't recommend trying to do it if you know there are many spirits around because it is true that while you're having an OBE a spirit can take control of your body and you may not be able to get it back. Those are the most dangerous things to do as a psychic. I have wanted to try it for many years but never have because I knew just how dangerous one can be so until you're sure you are safe from any harm don't try it.

Also those lights around things, I see them too and they aren't auras. Or well the real definition of an aura. The light surrounds everything, someone told me that it was atoms that are close to things that you see. So yeah I think that's what it is because only living things have auras which are usually the colorful lights.

If you have any more questions ill be glad to answer them to the best of my ability.
