My 1st Astral Projection Experience (was scary!)

 Andrea (@andreab)6 years, 12 months ago

For the last 3 or 4 days I’ve been doing a lot of research about astral projection. I’ve downloaded guided meditations to help me ‘get outside my body.’ I’ve listened to that twice with no luck. I got a light tingling and a sort or upward motion but that’s it. I know I’m new at this and it will take a lot of practice but this morning I had an extremely terrifying experience‚Ķ
My husband and I were laying in bed asleep and the phone rang. He answered and I heard the voice on the other end confirming his appointment for Monday. He hung the phone up and stayed in bed a few minutes. Then I had a thought of standing at the top of the stairs in his dad’s house. His dad recently passed away so no one is living there now but many people have had weird experiences in that house. It was like I was standing there at the top of the steps in between the bedrooms. At the same time the whole left side of my head starting this really intense tingling. The only way I can describe it is like your arm has been asleep for a long while and when blood rushes back through it you get the tingling, needle prickling feeling. Well, magnify the tingling by like 5 and minus the needles. Really intense feeling just in the left side of my head at first. In my quick thought of just being at the top of the stairs I felt scared and started to run into the room on the left, where we slept when there. Then it dawned on me that with this tingling I may be trying to Astral Project and there was no way I wanted to be in that house when I left my body. I thought, ‘Oh no! I don’t want to be here!” So I concentrated on my body laying in bed. The intense tingling was really uncomfortable and I was trying to ease it off but it was spreading quickly all over my body. It was very overwhelming. Then all of a sudden it was like someone grabbed me by my ankles and was lifting my legs up. I didn’t like the feeling of a presence with me because somehow I could feel it was from that house. I had this strong feeling that this thing was from there. I was trying to fight it and couldn’t. Then I felt like I was pulled to the right and was halfway hanging off the bed, from my lower back down was off the bed. My butt was sort of downward and my legs were being lifted in the air. It felt like an entity was trying to pull me out of my body and I could feel it saying, “Come on and let go because this is what you’ve wanted.” And I was fighting back‚Ķ”Not like this, not with you!” I remembered my husband was still laying in the bed and I tried to grab him with my left hand. I couldn’t feel him at all. It was like he wasn’t there at all, but I knew he was. There was a really loud buzzing noise in my ears. The feeling all over my body was so intense and I was terrified but this and the thing that had ahold of me. Then I could feel the bed moving a little as my husband got up. I was trying so hard to scream, move my body…anything to get his attention so he could help me. But I just couldn’t. He walked on by me not knowing what was happening to me. All I could do was try to stay in my body and fight this thing trying to pull me out. I was kicking and thrashing about. I heard the bedroom door close when he went into the living room. All of a sudden my ankles were freed and this thing grabbed me by my chest somehow. It kind of felt like I had a tight t-shirt on and it grabbed on with both hands. It jerked me up and we flew across the room so fast. I ran into the wall right by the door, under the clock. It didn’t hurt at all. It really didn’t even feel like I ran into anything, I just stopped there and fell down some. I was close to the floor now and I realized this thing had went through the wall and let go of me. The next thing I knew I was back in my body trying to hard to wake myself up. I kept telling myself, “Wake up! Wake up NOW!, ” and I could feel this presence coming close to me. THEN I remembered the loving white light and started surrounding myself with it. The presence faded out and was gone. I was still very tingly and the buzzing noise was calming down. I couldn’t move yet though. It took a couple minutes to be able to move my fingers and then slowly, the rest of my body. When I could I got up and wrote it all down because I don’t want to forget the details of it. I honestly don’t see how I could as intense as that was but I’ve read that sometimes it’s easy to forget quickly. So I wrote it down.
I don’t know what to say about this experience except OMG!!! I didn’t like it at all. I want to astral project BUT not like that. I don’t want to be pulled out by someone. And definitely not a dark energy! I will, however, continue to explore this subject and see what happens. What a wild feeling it was being pulled outside of my body! I don’t even know how to go about explaining that.

Wonderful experience. Textbook astral projection experience. I guess I want to start by telling you one thing that I have learned over the years. In the out-of-body state it is a human reflex to feel fearful of a presence. That is how I always was in the beginning. Every time there is another being there I am scared, and the fear would translate into the brain’s incorrect assumption that the being is a negative one. I guarantee you that this being that was trying to pull you out of your body was only trying to help you. The reason being that I had the same thing happen to me with a being trying to pull me out and my body and becoming scared. Dumb thoughts like “what if it’s trying to take my body or lock me out of it for good” would race through my head and I would panic until I was back in my body and would struggle to regain my bearings of having a body and would finally be able to move a little and would suddenly come back to waking consciousness only to realize how dumb I was to get scared again. It takes a lot of experiences before you can train your brain not to be afraid. Think about it. This being has the ability to pull you out of your body, but only tries to do so once you are at a point in your life where you are trying to astral project. Clearly it wants to help. Next time you should let it pull you out and ask it its name and intention. It will tell you straight away and if you don’t like the answer, returning to your body is a natural reflex and you will never be unable to do so if you so desire. Good luck.

EDIT: the loving white light is the return to your body. when you return to your body you return to your comfort zone. it is also somewhat of a spiritual dead zone where you no longer have astral “senses” and are returning to the safety and ignorance of the human experience. It’s like that feeling when you are a little girl late at night scared of monsters and things in your room and you jump into bed and dive under your blankets and suddenly you feel safe and at ease because nothing can get you now.

This has happened twice to me in the past month or so of avid attempts to project or travel, same feelings of being lifted and pulled down the bed, and my boyfriend being totally unaware, I am trying to focus on the fact that this is my will and my choice to practice, I can’t wait to get my first one

That sounds to me like sleep paralysis to me. (which can be a form of astral projection). I’ve had that sort of experience happen a few times before and its so terrifying :( I’m sorry you went through this.

Mr. Arbiter (86) (@snaysler) 6 years, 12 months ago ago

@abungay309, It is only terrifying until you have it so many times and start to realize that nothing bad will actually happen to you and you explore the state. And sleep paralysis is transferring your consciousness away from the physical body and onto the astral body, but it is where you do this without realizing that you even have an astral body or astral eyes (because you have never in your current human experience been aware that you have this second body, and you don’t even know how to use it) so you stay unmoving and oftentimes ‘blind’ sitting in your body in the astral state and wondering what happened to your physical self. Sleep paralysis is what happens just before and just after astral projections.

@Mr. Arbiter, Are DMT use and astral projecting related?

Thanks everyone. Yeah I actually feel ridiculous now. I had the perfect opportunity to have an obe and I blew it because I got so scared and fought it lol. I really do wish I would have let it pull me out without the fight and was able to see what it was like to be out. I got the jist of how it feels to be partially out and then jerked out lol I am hoping it sneaks up on me again like that tho.

Definitely sleep paralysis. Which is the first step into astral projection. This happens to me more than I would like and yes at first it is extremely terrifying but eventually you have to accept it and let it take you where it wants to go. I’ve been pulled by my hands, by my feet, by my chest and by my neck. This shouldn’t be perceived as a negative thing, we think it is because we have just entered an unfamiliar territory. Most of us get very terrified in this state and we try to fight it and get back to reality. Instead, go with it. Close your eyes and picture you leaving your body. Everything will follow. I struggled with getting into astral projection for a long time. At most I would get half way out but felt like I was being held back or not ready. One day I finally accepted the paralysis and went with it. As soon as the paralysis started, the loud humming began and the pressure against my chest got harder, I told myself “Go with it, Go where it takes me, don’t fight it” Immediately I felt strong winds against my face, I closed my eyes and smelt fresh air. The wind got stronger and faster and I opened my eyes to see that I was no longer in my body but I was in the sky flying. This freaked me out and I immediately jumped back into my bed. I wasn’t prepared.

I attempted a out of body experience 4 or 5 years ago when I was 16, but I was unsuccessful, I think what happened was I going down deep within my conscious and I dropped in a sense and I immediately got scared and woke up.

I haven’t tried to have a OBE since then not because I’m scared, but I don’t think I have a real drive to do it. I’ll try again one these days maybe.

@snaysler

How many experiences you come across?

@luigiblue, thanks so much for the encouragement! I’m at a point now where I can’t relax completely. I’m sure due to my experience causing fear. I feel like I’m over it but when I try to get myself to relax I find tension all in my neck pushing my head into the pillow. Even if I was for a few seconds in the night, I automatically push my head into the pillow. It’s frustrating me to no end AND my neck is getting really sore. Hoping to overcome this SOON lol may have to relax and give up on it for a couple weeks to let my muscles relax. But I’m in no way giving up completely. I want it too bad!

Sounds to me like sleep paralysis; I’ve had it happen a few times, one of which I had an extremely disturbing dream beforehand, just morbid shit. Then I woke up in cold sweat, ran upstairs to splash water in my face then jumped on my couch, the tingly feeling was all around my body and I couldn’t shake it. I kept thinking wtf why isn’t it going away after I woke up and after maybe 30 minutes of drinking water/trying to calm myself I was finally able to go back to bed.

The minds a weird thing

Andrea, thanks so much for sharing. This happened to me multiple times last night and I was absolutely terrified till I found this post on google. Twice, someone was pulling me by the ankles upwards and the rest of my body seemed to flop back. At the same time I could hear loud vibrations as I moved upwards. The vibrating noise is always the same and seems to get louder as I become more aware of some sort of entities around me. I panicked and wrestled until I fell back into my body and turned the light on both times. The third time this happened no body seemed to be there and I felt more calm. My face was almost pressed against the ceiling. It has happened probably at least 3-4 times before that but never more than once in one night. I go to sleep as normal and then find I am suddenly conscious in the middle of the night, everything is as normal and maybe even a little brighter.. the only difference is that I am four foot above my actual body with the crazy vibrating. Is it safe to stay calm and go with it? The first time it was petrifying as I could sense multiple beings around. What is also strange is my sister went to see a clairvoyant recently and they told her that I had been seeing my recently passed grandma and not to fear as she was trying to give me a message. I am not sure if that is possible during OBE/ astral projections but I definitely feel I have previously been passed on messages in lucid dream states. Any thoughts and opinions are welcome as I honestly thought I was going crazy!!

My first astral projection was a scary one as well. I’ve only had one and haven’t tried to have one again. Thing is that i had just made friends with a new roommate that had just moved in to our home of 6 rooms.. He is currently a close friend of mine now. This guy was and continues to be all into energies and conspiracy theories and what not. He sorta spoke to me about OBE or/and astral projections. Turned out that a month later i left that home and roomed with a buddy of mine who need help with his rent. I had my own room still, my own privacy. I would always lock my door at night. the new “energies” friend had made me develop thoughts, in my mind, a new belief, there are energys that roam everything and everyone.. Good and bad. So one night, about 2 months of knowing what i thought i knew, I get home from work, to the new apartment with the struggling roomey…i had just done graveyard. the time was 6:25am when I fell asleep. I had got home @ 6:08am …showered.. Got ready for bed. Again, I remembered seeing the clock which said 6:25am.. It always takes me for ever to actually knock out. This time, I guess, I just closed my eyes and fell right to sleep. And then, I began to see myself laying down on bed! I could feel both of my bodies’ feelings. If that makes any sense? i saw myself outside of my body. Like I could see myself trying to move and scream but I sorta was and wasnt?! At the top of my lungs it felt, but nothing I was choking, I couldn’t communicate! I was trying to scream my roommate’s name “Mike!” some several times!! I didn’t feel nothing pull me up or nothing hold me down.. I could just see the whole show from both cameras, and feel my thoughts… I then woke up and jumped off my bed and ran towards the door.. The door nob was on the other side… I thought it was like that during this experience that felt like real life. As I saw for that half second, pondering to myself on why the door nob was on the other side, it started to shake. As if some one was trying to come in. I opened my door and my roommate was there. Half asleep. Rubbing his eyes. I asked him if he heared me scream his name but he just told me off and walked in to the rest room.. It was a small apartment so every room was literally a couple feet away from each other. As hes going in to the rest room I tell him “Wait!, No! Don’t Leave By Myself Right Now! Wait!!!” He closes the door and the whole lights were off. Also we had big blinds that made the little apartment pitch black. As my friend ignored me and shut the door in my face, i immediatly began to try to turn on the light switches, all of em! and they just wouldnt seem to work.. I ran to the front door of the apartment entrance and those didnt seem to work either. I was hyperventilating with fear! I started screaming “The Lights Aren’t Working!” when I’m slowly turning around towards a white light in the middle of kitchen area. I was afraid shitless! BAM!! I wake up on my bed. I suddenly whisper my roommates name again, but just to myself this time. “mike!” I look at the clock. It said 6:45am. I get up. Look at my door nob and noticed that it was on the correct side of which its always been. I check up on my roommate and he was asleep in his room. He always slept with the door open. He seemed peaceful. Like if he hadnt heard anything. Worst 20 minutes of my life. Those 20 minutes felt like hours ! I felt trapped. I was relieved to be back in my own self. I had just a had a dream within a dream! I had never experienced either one of those. I mean, I probably have but this was something way different.. I never remembered a dream (or whatever this was) so frightening, with details that I would be able to explain so vividly.. I guess, on one the older comments above, somebody wrote about how the light guides us back to our body. That’s what made sense to me just now. It sux tho that I was afraid. I am not looking for to another episode like the one I just told u guys.. But if I do. I’ll try to breath and accept the fact that those lights or whatever was holding me down, are beings who are doing there part. But yes, that was my scary astral projection. also the only one I’ve ever had. Hope to hear some positive feed back or any predictions / theories / meanings of any sort towards my OBE / NIGHTMARE lol. I hope y’all keep doing your thing on informing Ppl about these inner soul phenomenons. Freaky shit!

OMG, Bro, Something like this happened to me. IDK if it was a OBE or a nightmare, but the whole Dream within a Dream. I don’t remember it all but in my first dream, I don’t Remember what happen, but I woke up(out of my first dream), ran into the kitchen, like I seen myself running…(If you’re a gamer and play Mortal Kombat, Its like Noob Saibot sending one of his shadows to attack) The door opening was leaning sideways like trying to watch a movie on the TV but can’t seem to get a clear picture, anyway. I ran into the kitchen to try to flip on the lights, but nothing happen, I don’t want to lie, but if Im right I think something was after me (I don’t remember being pulled or anything) then, I jumped out of my sleep the crazyest thing that’s ever happened. I also had like a 3rd person type of dream, IDK if that’s OBE or what, but I was talking to this girl, who I knew in real life, We’re talking at a bus stop, meeting her folks. Was’nt at all scary like the above dream, but the fact that I saw it all unfold, while dreaming it was crazy.

<div>Astral projection is an art that opens you up for demonic influences, attacks and their ultimate plans is to inhabit and possesed you.</div><div>Though they might appear to be friendly, demons are evil to the core and they hate humans for they seek to steal, kill and destroy.</div><div>Guys stay away from such practices, nothing good will come out of it except the for being inhabited by demons who will only end up destroying you.</div><div>

</div><div>In the Bible we see Jesus having authority over such spirits and He reveals their diabolic intentions.</div><div>
</div><div>If you find yourself in such experience calling on Him will pull you out because there’s power in His name.</div><div>

I don’t know if this is the same, but when I’m in a deep sleep I seem to walking up a lot by being jolted awake. I feel like I am being pulled and then I fall then my body jolts and I am awake. And I have done it when someone has been in the bed the same time as me and they never notice… Is this related or something else?

I too have experienced this since I was a child but was lately intense for the last five years I usually fought to regain consciousness but currently am not worried when it happens and I usually just let it go.I think I should try getting out of my body and moving around…I have learn of ways to get to this zone so I know it will work,later today…Wish me good luck.
