I had been trying to
induce an out-of-body experience for about a week because I was slowly being
pulled away from my ignorant way of living and because I had some mind-opening
experiences in meditation. One night I was meditating and concentrating on my
third eye when a clear thought came into my mind that my friend John was calling
me, but I didn't want him to interrupt my uplifting meditation so I was thinking
no don't call now, but sure enough two seconds later my phone was vibrating and
it was him. This got me interested in the true possibilities of man that I had
not really knew of before.
So I had been
consciously trying to induce an OBE that week so I think my astral body had
loosened from the flesh that day when I took a nap. Right when I fell asleep I
unintentionally rolled out of my body and saw myself floating above it. I flew
through my door outside which was completely different than my normal yard (in
the astral realm), but I had a thought that I should mark something so I could
see it when I woke up. So I found myself with a nickel in my hand and as I was
putting it down on the grass I saw a penny right beside it. That blew my mind as
if I had been there before and that's all I can remember of that one.
Another time I fell
asleep and came out and was floating behind my mother in our living room, a
couple of doors were different though so I didn't talk to her about it when I
awoke. (perhaps it was in an astral world)
And lastly, one day I was taking a nap and I felt an uplifting of spirit and
found myself flying above my old houses backyard free as can be with a beautiful
enjoyment as if I was playing a great game. Then I felt as if I were falling
back into my body and awoke with a great sense of peace.
