Gabriel G's Experience
My interest in astral projection began in 1999. Since that time i worked hard to accomplish out-of-body-experiences. I was always very spiritual orientated. I used the common techniques to induce a OBE, but most of the time it didn't worked out. I would only feel the vibrations, chakras and sound. Only the pre-phase of and OBE, because i would always fall in panic.
But the exit has happened in 2001 with full consciousness! I lay down in my bed at night and attempted, with some techniques, to reach the vibration state. I then blacked out and some 3 hours later i woke up but my physical body was paralyzed but i felt that i still could move myself (my astral body). It was like if i was inside a shell. I then forced myself to exit. But it was very very difficult because it was like i was surrounded by elastic cords or if i was bound by magnetic means. Beside that i was very excited and at the same time i was in constant panic.. struggling to leave my physical body.
When I finally was above my physical body, but still fighting against the attraction of it, i sensed my bedroom. I could not see but in some ways i felt it like if my astral body was like water in the space of the bedroom. Then i felt the presence of two beings. I could not see them but i felt their volume. The best way i can describe them is a flying ball with wings.
Then i remembered about some topics i read in books regarding astral beings. It said that some astral beings are very helpful and one should, in most cases not be afraid. So i asked for help. The words didn't came from my mouth, there was no sound, there was no words... just intention. It was telepathic and i knew i was communicating with them. I also "heard" their speech. It was like a 1000 people talking at the same time but i didn't understand. Then they approached me and grabbed my hands. This is funny because it didn't seemed that they had hands to grab me. By grabbing my hands they pulled me in direction of a wall. But then i panic. I think because of my common sense that i would hit the wall and not pass it like in this plane of existence. So because of that i jerked back to my physical body and slowly woke up feeling very excited about what just had happened.
that the astral beings wanted to pull me out of the influence of my physical
body, through the wall out of my bedroom.
