I need some views on an experience I had awhile back.
Before I went to bed, I wanted to meditate, and try to astral project.( I've been off and on trying to learn)
So I was laying in bed, and I started to get into a relaxed state like how I do when I prepare to meditate. I usually get up to the part with vibrations in my body feeling, and that's as far as it usually went.
However, this time I kept breathing, saying my mantras in my mind, and I heard this "whoosh" and suddenly I was seeing fragments of people and places. It seemed to go on forever, and yet I knew I was not asleep. After some time, I heard the whoosh again and opened my eyes.It was a very different experience, I was wondering is it lucid dreaming or did I come close to astral projection?
I also had a moonstone underneath my pillow,( I've had it underneath it for a couple of weeks for dream experiments.)
I usually get to the vibrations in my body feeling, and I try to allow myself to rise out, but it seems to be stuck. Like I can feel it trying but for some reason it cant go.
