In the early hours of this morning I was trying a variation of an astral projection technique. The basic technique is keeping the mind awake while the body falls asleep. If you manage it, it is a lovely sensation, but it is not always easy.

This is an interesting little out-of-body experience I had one morning. It was the early hours and suddenly I felt myself thrown out of my body very quickly to the other end of the bed.
This morning I had to smile a little when I woke up as my daughter actually helped me wake up inside my sleeping body. I was lying in bed and my daughter popped her head round the door and said, ‘I’ve woken up because there was some light coming into the room.’ I replied ‘Oh it doesn’t matter I’ll get up.’ I got up and thought I was really awake, then I thought that my daughter wouldn’t wake me up to tell me that. Normally, she’d probably turn over and go back to sleep as it was still a little early.
Fear is often a difficult hurdle to get over in the astral. The fear of the unknown. I always remember one of my early experiences.
My first conscious out-of-body experience (OBE) was very simple but I’ll always remember it for the joy it gave me. I use the term ‘conscious’ as we all leave our bodies at night, though we are not always aware of it. I had been studying my dreams for a while, I wanted to learn how to lucid dream at will and was practising techniques to achieve my goal. My desire at this time was to expand my inner knowledge, to contact the part of me that is not physical, a higher source. My OBE was spontaneous. One night I woke up inside my sleeping body, I felt slight vibrations which I would describe as fizzy. It was a marvellous sensation. I could see a little light coming through the blinds.
Had a great dream this morning, I was dreaming and found myself in a very high building, I went over to look out the window, if I see a window in a dream I usually have the irristible urge to jump out usually the act of jumping out and flying causes me to become lucid, then I go from a lucid dream to the astral. This window was incredibly high and the view over the city was incredible. Unfortunately there were bars on the window and I couldn’t get out. My dream characters often try to stop me jumping out windows as they think I’ll die lol. Must be parts of me that resist me jumping into alternative realities. I went to find a window that was more ‘user-friendly’.
A few days ago five words entered my mind, the title of this article – ‘It’s all about evolution’ – at the bottom of all our life experiences, joys and sorrows, laughter and sadness, the reason behind it all is evolution. It was as if my higher self just popped those words in my head to ponder, so ponder I did.
This OBE is a good example about how we can connect to others during OBEs. I had gone up to the attic to sleep at about 2am due to my husband’s snoring. In the early hours of the morning I had the following OBE.
Don’t you just love it when those synchronicities pop up, they give you that sense that there is a greater plan at work that someone somewhere has everything under control and can guide you in the direction you wish to go.
Mindfulness is becoming more and more popular because it actually works for many of the problems we have in life.
Basically mindfulness is about being aware in life, aware of your thoughts particularly and not allowing yourself to get involved in the endless chatter that goes on in our heads, it is about focusing on the present moment. Being present in our lives makes every moment important because you are there living it fully, how many moments do we miss in life as we are thinking about the future or stressing about the past, before we know it months have past, years and we lived most of that time lost in the endless noise in our minds.
