From March 2013
Lately I have had a really strong desire to reconnect to my favourite guide. He last popped in for my birthday, every so often I feel the need to reconnect to him. This guide is the one that I believe had the job of inspiring me to start my inner journeys, it was my desire to meet him and talk to him that got me started on really trying to lucid dream. My lucid dreams then led to my first conscious out-of-body experience.
So this morning I was in a normal dream, I was with my son and we were just chatting, my son then told me to go over to a wall and jump off. So I went to the wall, I stood there and thought to myself, ‘if I jump off here I can fly,’ ‘Ah!’ I then exclaimed. ‘So that means I’m dreaming…. and that means now I’m lucid…. and that means I can then go into the astral and meet my guide.’
I told my son I was off out-of-body and shot up into the air so fast I daren’t even look. At which point I then found myself in an astral version of my parents’ garden, it is a place I have often met with my guide.
I called to him, but nothing, I really tuned in to my desire to meet him… again nothing. So I thought ‘oh well have to go looking for him.’ I looked for what seemed like a long time, and by now I was getting a bit concerned that I would wake up soon. I decided to go to the village common, my guide was a teacher at my secondary school and, as well as Geogrpahy, he was the sports teacher. So I thought he might be on the common with some kids playing football or cricket.
I flew down to the bottom of my astral village and turned the corner round into the common…. and there he was in front of me. By this time I admit to feeling a bit emotional because I so much wanted to reconnect. We hugged and my guide laughed at the tears in my eyes. He laughed because he knew that he had always been with me, it’s just that in the physical everything seems so separate.
He said that ‘they’ (by they he meant other spiritual beings) had told him that someone called Jane was looking for him. I said that Jane is my second name and I commented that their perception couldn’t be very good. He then told me that I had nearly been called Elena, though I saw it in my mind’s eye as Eleanora. He was also wearing a white clerical collar.
At this point I started drifting out of the OBE and back to waking life.
There must be a reason why my guide didn’t come to me when I called, guides always have a reason, there’s always something behind everything, they just don’t write it on the wall you’re supposed to work it out for yourself.
He could have been saying, don’t expect everything to come to you, you have to go out and look for things, you have to act in life to achieve your dreams. The village common was probably significant in some way.
I got the feeling that the clerical collar was symbolic of my guide working on various spiritual matters. He was my initial guide, well the first one I met, his job with me was to guide me onto my spiritual path. I have had many guides since then but he has remained the one who I feel the most connected with.
The ‘they’ (the other beings) is interesting and comforting, as going by this there would seem to be a group of beings listening to what’s going on in the physical, hearing our thoughts and responding to our desires.
The other very strong message that came through this OBE for me is that to achieve a particular goal strength of desire impregnated with feeling is necessary. My goal was to meet with my guide and nothing was going to stop me, the desire and the action I took to find my guide in the OBE led to my success. In order to meet with my guide consciously I had to leave my body so it was a great way to induce an out-of-body experience.
I think this out-of-body experience illustrates the importance of astral projection or astral travel. There are people that don’t know love in our physical world, this could be for many reasons, not all of us are born into loving and nurturing environments. However this does not mean we aren’t loved. The ‘they’ that my guide mentioned I could call ‘The Listeners’ for they were listening to my calls for my guide. My guide was busy with other spiritual matters I believe, hence the clerical collar. maybe it was more difficult for him to hear me, I don’t know how it works over there. But there the Listeners who called him knowing that I needed to be with my guide if only for a moment.
My guide’s laughter at my almost desperate calls wasn’t meant to mock but more to say ‘You are silly, come here, you know there’s no true separation.’ It was the laughter of someone who understood, of someone who has been in the physical realms.
Meeting with guides when astral projecting shows you that you are indeed loved. We all have our own back up team, we all have our own Listeners and in turn we should listen too, listen to our lives and what our lives are telling us.
Happy astral travels!
