Astral Projection While Sleeping – Awakening With A Jolt!! – by Tana Hoy
If you're like most people, you've probably experienced waking up with a jolt. Did you know that this happens because you've been doing astral projection while you sleep, and were roaming around in the astral plane? The sudden involuntary jolt occurs when your astral body returns to your physical body after flying around out there!
You may have also noticed times when, just as you're drifting off to sleep, your arm or leg suddenly jerks? This happens because your astral body is trying to detach itself from your physical body but, for some reason, it cannot detach, and then suddenly snaps back into place.
These experiences are normal, because astral travel is a normal occurrence when you sleep.
What Is Astral Projection?
When you astral project, your astral body (an exact energy replica of your physical body) travels and explores the world, leaving your physical body behind. Your physical body has to be in a state of deep relaxation before your astral body can detach itself from it. Which is why you naturally astral project when you're asleep.
When your astral body successfully detaches itself from your physical body, you are able to go through walls, visit faraway places in an instant, and even meet angels, spirit guides, and the souls of those who passed away.
You may not always remember the experience, because your subconscious mind takes over, but with practice, you can become fully aware while traveling in the astral world, remembering your adventures while astral projecting.
The Difference Between Astral Projecting And Dreaming
When you're dreaming, you're subconscious mind processes thoughts that are already in your consciousness, such as memories, desires, wishes, and repressed emotions. For example, when having a lucid dream, you're aware that you're dreaming, and you're able to control what happens in your dream. But when you're astral projecting, your consciousness actually leaves your body to goes someplace else.
If you're wondering whether your nighttime experience was astral an astral travel, you can find the answer by thinking about the following questions:
• Do you remember floating up? Sometimes, when you astral project, you find yourself face-to-face with the ceiling, or even going through the roof.
• If you happened to look around, did you see your physical body sleeping below?
• As far as you can remember, were the objects around you functioning as they should For example, was the clock telling real time, or was the cat talking in a human language? In ordinary dreams, people, animals, and objects, show some form of behavior or actions that aren’t reality based.
• In your remembering, if you happened to walk into a room where your pet (if you have one) or someone you know was staying, did they react to your presence?
• Do you vividly remember flying? Sometimes, the sensation of flying is the only recollection you have of a nighttime experience, but this is one of the signs that you've astrally projected.
There are other ways to verify if you had an out-of-body experience, such as witnessing something happen that you couldn't have known about while asleep in your room, or while in the astral realm, meeting a friend who was also astral traveling, and having a conversation that later made sense.
Going Astral: An Extraordinary Experience
Astral projecting offers an extraordinary experience, since you are able to view both the physical world and the other spiritual realms. The astral world, after all, is like a doorway between the physical world and the higher dimensions.
Because there is no time and space in the astral world (as we normally view time and space in the physical world), you are able to visit any place that you want to in an instant. Such as the Eiffel Tower in France, meeting with your spirit guides, or even talking to your deceased loved ones.
Sometimes, however, when you suddenly realize that you're travelling outside your physical body, you become afraid or uncertain. This is when you suddenly snap back into your physical body, and you wake up with a jolt.
You can actually avoid this from happening by staying calm, and keeping your presence of mind as you travel outside of your body. It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, you will enjoy your astral travels even more.
In any case, the next time you wake up with a jolt, you know what had just happened – that you've been wandering about in the astral realm, exploring the world, and meeting souls and spirits!
