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.
However, while laying there allowing myself to sink down it struck me that a good exercise would be to let the mind drift off into the hypnagogic imagery and then bring it back before it went too far. Probably an intuition sent from my higher self. Almost like mind sit ups! It really is like strengthening your mind muscle.
I did it for a while but then couldn’t hold on much longer and I drifted off. However, a little while after dropping off there I was suddenly mind awake/body asleep. My mind had kicked in and had woken up, and from there all I had to do was fizz myself out of my body.
My first instinct when I leave my body is to fly through the window, if only to get away from my physical body which can sometimes have a magnetic effect on the energy body and pull it in.
I flew through the window and into the darkness on the other side, only to find myself back in the room, I tried again, through the window into the darkness ……….. only to find myself back in my room, I kept trying, it was as if I was stuck in a loop. My guides must’ve been cracking up I probably looked like a dog chasing its tail!
Anyway, after about the fifth attempt the scenery changed outside the window……. but what happened defies description. It all made perfect sense at the time, I was talking to a little 2-dimensional man which was really a representation of something else, of a ‘people’ but what we said and what it was all about lies in some deep place in my memory that I couldn’t get back to this morning. All I have left in my mind is an image of a pack of cards and the image of the little man who was without a face.
Never mind….. life goes on. Great mind-muscle exercise, I’ll be doing my mind-sit ups tonight too!
