Recently I have been strongly determined to astral project while I was sleep. When I woke up one morning I was so determined I made myself go back to sleep (which wasn't to hard hahaha). I focused very hard on projecting my astral body to the staircase. I was still half conscious but I managed to... I don't know... Half project. It was morning, so there was light in the house. I felt like I had to be in two minds at once.
I heard everything around me and downstairs in both my astral body and my physical body. I felt like I was in bed but I felt the cold stairs under my feet. It was really confusing. So I focused just on walking down the stairs in my astral body. I saw my surroundings when I got off the steps. My little brothers babysitter Bob closed the door with his hand behind him (It was so clear I could swear I really physically was there. I paid very close attention to detail). Then my little brother (he's almost four) ran up to my mom and she picked him up. He was wearing a black and _____ coat (could decipher the other color.
I got kind of bored being there so I sort of floated up, opened the door, and flew to the driveway. I sat on the roof of my mom's car, my feet dangling off the roof of her car. I noticed that she had parked back more than usual, and this bush I always looked at way right in front of me. I sat there in the fresh air for a little while and noticed a twig was in my face. I looked at it and swatted it, breaking it off in the process. I looked at the way I had broken it. It had a longer jagged bottom, shorter top, and it way thin.
I felt my consciousness slip away so I floated back into my body, fully aware in both my physical and astral body what had happened, the whole time conscious in both. I woke up and immediately raced outside to check the car. It was exactly as it was in my projection (even the car placement).
I looked up and exactly at hand distance from the car was a snapped twig that was snapped exactly as it was in my projection. Then I raced inside and asked my mom about the details and she confirmed everything with a confused look on her face.
My questions are:
1. Was it really an astral projection?
2. If so why was my consciousness split?
3. How can I make my full consciousness in my astral body?
