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.
I left my body and flew through the window, it was dark outside and my astral eyes just couldn’t adjust. I started to feel uneasy. Suddenly I heard drums in the distance, rythmic beats that seemed almost hypnotic. Slowly they became louder and louder, as the sound began to fill my astral head, I saw little men coming towards me, they were dark and I couldn’t see their faces. Actually I didn’t really want to, it was all getting rather menacing. The drumming increased and the little men started closing in…………… that was it, I flipped and hot-footed it back to my body quicker that you could say ‘out-of-body experience’.
Once back in my physical body I started laughing, I realised that the beating drums were actually my heart beating, the fact that I was feeling uneasy had made my heart beat faster so the drums became louder. As my fear increased my mind produced dark little men surrounding me, just like my fear was enclosing me. A knock-on effect.
I was frightened of my own heartbeat.
The astral is thought and feeling reactive, what you think and feel is what you get, that is why it is so important to stay calm and objective. I can’t say I’ve never been frightened since but I always try to bear in mind the following:
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”
