You(the tourist gude) are dumpfound.Because all the above information is correct up to the slightest detail.And she has no way of knowing all this.She's never even been to Florence before.You say something like"What kind of fuckery is this?Where's the Candid Camera?Did you have anyone follow me?This is a joke,right?'
It wasn't a joke.It was me astral projecting to(or remote viewing ) Florence,looking for him while I was napping in the afternoon.It was also the first time I ever had actual confirmation that the places I'd been visiting during my astral escapades were real and not imaginary.
I can fly and travel in the astral in my sleep.Often.And guess what.You've been doing that too.We all do it from time to time.Maybe not so often,but you still do it.When our physical bodies are asleep and our conscious minds resting,our subconscious takes over and we sometimes experience an astral projection.
What is astral projection?
An astral projection is NOT a dream,though you might mistake it for one.Usually our dreams are in the beginning of our sleep cycle at night and they are the accumulation of our thoughts,fears,hopes and experiences of the previous day.We mostly forget about them or cannot recall every single detail about them.
Here's my take on astral travel,based on personal experience:
1. All this hype about astral travel,namely,silver cords,bodily vibrations,sleep paralysis and the like is not my thing.I've never experienced any of the like and I am not sure whether they are actually true or not.My experience in the astral does not involve any of these.
When I'm projecting,I have neither seen my etheric body or a silver cord attached to me.It is just me as conscience.But I do have a sort of physical presence
that can fly,pass through windows and glass( that was a lot of fun) and manipulate space and movement.
I even had this very intense experience in the astral;I found myself in a family house with kids (one of which had the Down syndrome) and the dog of the family,a large beast of a pet,noticed my presence.It came up to me and,for luck of a better words, jumped through me or up to me or in me,I can't explain which.It gave me such a fright both because it was a big animal and because noone had passed through me before!
2.The feeling that you get from an astral projection is totally different to that of a dream.Unlike the chaotic ramblings of a dream,there is something very purposeful and intentional about astral travel.You get to be in control of yourself,of steering yourself consciously in space,just like you control your body movements when awake or the way you drive a car.It's purposeful and precise.
But it is not a lucid dream either because you don't get to control the experience or the environment around you.Sometimes you have no idea where you are or how you ended up there.You just get to control how you propel yourself in space and sometimes you get to pick your destination as well.
3.Astral travelling fills you with inexplicable joy.Unlike dreams or nightmares that we either remember fondly or try to forget,astral experience leaves you with a feeling of euphoria,even if it was a neutral or very mandane destination that you chose,there is no mistake about it.When you wake up you feel energised,excited and overflowing with joy bordering on bliss.
4. Your perception during astral travel is different.The clarity with which you perceive things is either more acutely intense or more pleasantly blurred depending on what or where you direct your attention.It's like focusing and unfocusing a camera lens.You direct your focus on to something and immediately it becomes crystal clear in a thousand times more intense way than our normal perception works.
I once found myself in a big, modern bridge suspended over a highway.As soon as I thought about what was under that metal arch I was propelled up directly under it and could read the small manufacturers print on some of the metal work.
In fact if you wake up in the morning and rememer your dream really really well,small details and all,it is usually an astral experience.On one occasion I heard someone repeating a totally strange word to me in a language I was totally unfamiliar with.I still remembered the word when I woke up,wrote it down and ,after some initial difficulty with finding the correct spelling, I looked it up and it turned out to be Hebrew.
5. Astral travelling usually involves some kind of flying or floating.In all the dreams you've ever had of flying,the were actually OBE(out of body experiences).You see,this is the way you get aroud in the astral,by flying.And boy,is it AWSOME.You know what I mean,you've done it too,at least once.We all have.
The sense of freedom,of expansion,shedding the restrictions of gravity,floating blissfully about and around,God,it's the best part of it all.I've seen many locations in my town from the bird eye's view,spinning around them in angles that are humanly impossible to get.And I loved it,loved it so much!The sensation is still with me as I write this,just awsome!
In my next post I'll try to explain how to go about having more often and more conscious astral travel experiences
Until then,take care!
