Yesterday I posted a video on youtube describing basically what I did when trying to keep up my astral projection experiences. After my first OBE I wanted to continue so I threw myself into it. One of the necessary things in life when we want to do anything successfully is dedication, whether we want to get fit, healthy, learn a new skill, create a beautiful garden we need to be dedicated to it.
I’ve been a week without an OBE, even Sunday morning didn’t produce one with a few hours extra sleep. However, this morning I managed it…… in the end after perseverence. I woke up a few times during the night and each time I woke up I tried, nothing, then I woke at 5am and knew that this would probably be my last chance before having to get up. I thought about what I had been doing earlier to try and have an OBE and I realised that I hadn’t been dedicated enough I hadn’t been really trying to tune in my mind to the whole thing.
So this time I really took hold of my mind and concentrated on the task at hand, I made an effort on focusing in on my intention to astral project. It was an effort, I’m generally a bit tired with various ‘busyness’ going on in my life at the moment. However I thought I need to put my practice where my mouth is and be dedicated.
It worked and I soon found myself in the mind awake/body asleep state, it was all pretty realistic so I got up and had to jump in the air to see if I would float, I did, so I headed towards the window. Once through the window there was so much light, ahead of me in the distance were mountains, to the left of me was the sun, so much light but it was not blinding. Just below me was a man in a black suit explaining that we must always go towards the sun, we must always work towards the Divine. I felt a little difficulty in flying I think due to my physical body being a bit tired, I think I was just too conscious of it so my physical tiredness was reflected back at me in the astral. The man in the black suit prompted me to move with my mind so I focused on the mountains in the distance. Unfortunately, at that point it all becomes a bit hazy and I woke up.
The mind is truly a wonderful tool if we make the effort, I know I can be a bit mentally lazy at times, especially when I’m curled up in bed snug and warm, part of me just wants to switch off and zone out. However, dedication to something calls on us to tune in, to make the effort, to focus on the job in hand. Dedication to the spiritual, to working towards the Divine.
