    Greetings forum,


    I have not yet described my first and other conscious mind travel experiences, so I will give a consolidated version as follows.

    At about the age of twenty-five in the afternoon my wife and I were having a nap. , but instead of going to sleep I entered a cataleptic state that I now know is hypnagogic sleep. In other words, I was unable to move my body (sleep paralysis). I was aware of my surroundings and that I was laying on the bed next to my wife. Then in the area of my head, an extreme vibration and buzzing began to shake my whole being. I tried and tried to move with no avail at first, and then something weird happened. I found myself hovering just below the ceilings, looking down on the bodies of my wife and can still remember the red bed cover. That indicates some sort of mind sight.

    I did not like this experience, feeling some sort of an malicious being was watching me all the time, in addition the vibration and buzzing were very unpleasant. However, this sleep paralysis vibration started to happen more and more spontaneously until I found myself outside the house one night looking at the stars.

    My consciousness awareness seemed to have separated from my sleeping body. I then began to take a real interest in this phenomenon and was lead to read a book by Robert Monroe and found the term then used was astral travel. It was considered evil or even by my then Christian friends who advised me to stop as my vacant body could be possessed by an evil entity, while I was traveling into other realities. Taking their advice, I stopped trying to exit the body when the catatonic sleep paralysis came at night and eventually these experienced ceased for many years.

    I started to spontaneously experience all types of other realities on my nearly nightly travels. Some of these realms where so bizarre that there are no words to express these other dimensions. Realities alternate universes other selves, in the English language. The recent thread “they all walked backward should” should give an idea to the forum.

    There are other strange humanoid life forms so advanced from us that I could not get them to recognize me as a sentient being. Others were primitive, others almost like or earth but with minute differences. What we call matter is simply a wisp of smoke and I could rush through giant planets, which flashed be as rock, crystal, fire and again into the unimaginable void of the universe into the composite white light outside the confines of the universe.

    Our universe at appeared to recede until it became an almost infinite dark plane, then become a huge black orb until it was just one black dot among the infinite other universe in the eternal now of existence.

    All seemed on this colossal unimaginable vast scale just minute interconnected molecules of one colossal gigantic cosmic body

    I did not interact with those who have passed on but appeared to remain within the material realities. However, I did experience some frightening things, such as coming back in horror to the wrong body. This person was in a small prison cell somewhere and I really got a fright and immediately found myself back in my own body. At times, I seemed to have dual awareness in that I became somehow two beings, my sleeping self-communicating with my ethereal self.

    "Maybe it was all generated by my beautiful imaginative mind, but read it or tear it apart if you like"



    I hope this brief summary is of some interest to the group

    Regards

    Alan

    I also find it strange that I am forced to concur with your strange humanoid life forms.

    It's called "dreaming". It's also a fairly common phenomenon.

    No not dreaming but a higher and altered state of consciousness

    Hi Alan

    I have been told that you need to ensure that you visualise a silver thread running from your physical body to your astral body, ie. ensure you have a connection from one body to the other. This enables your astral body to be able to find its way back easily.

    Lori, not everything in your head is real. It's really that simple.

    Persistent bouts of unreality need expert advice.

    and not everything that's real is in your head.

    Are you trying to be clever?

    Because if you are, that was an EPIC FAIL.

    Notice Phlo, that whatever you say, Lori will spin it round and toss it back even if it contradicts or makes no sense at all? Have you seen this kind of puerile display before?

    I am sure the OP is aware of what is and what isn't a dream.

    Obviously not. The OP appears to be confusing their dreams for something else.

    Not obvious in the slightest. I would say that the OP has been astral travelling but has not yet learned how to control his astral body. I would love to be able to astral travel.

    Ah, you're someone else who can't tell the difference between dreams and reality.
    "Astral travelling" is a fiction.

    "Astral travelling" is a fiction.

    How do you know that?

    How about if I said "I don't argue about astral travelling. I don't need to."?

    On the other hand I could point that there is absolutely no evidence for it being real whatsoever. There is not one single case of "astral travelling" that has been shown to be anything other than a dream/ delusion/ hallucination.

    I would be more than happy to accept that you didn't want to argue about Astral Travelling and would respect that. I am sure, though, that you can see I wasn't looking for an argument?

    There is not one single case of "astral travelling" that has been shown to be anything other than a dream/ delusion/ hallucination.

    Please, I don't want to argue about this, but I would like to know how it was proved that every single case of astral travelling was actually a dream, a delusion or a hallucination.

    So you missed the reference?

    Yet you make a claim...

    Through scientific studies.
    And you're twisting my words. There's a difference between "not one single claim has been shown to be" and "every single claim has been shown not to be".
