Yesterday morning when I went to bed,I knew I was ripe for another round of OBE's.Personally for me,when I stay up very late or am deprived of sleep,it is very easy to induce such an event.
After settling in,and relaxing,I did my usual prayer/thanks for everything.I began to feel and hear the sensations that usually occur with my astral events.The fan that I run for white noise began to sound like it was going faster, also expereinced the paralysis that can occur as well.I then had to center my concentration on one thought.As I have stated before,you have to have a singular thought to astrally project.A wandering mind will only produce dreams as the subconscious takes over.
As I focused on a singular thought,I began to feel my normal sensations.The best way to describe it is I feel like something is descending upon me and it feels like I am being shrink wrapped or something.I let this feeling continue,as fear will kill it,and suddenly I felt my astral body as if it were falling through my bed.It is a very strange sensation,and others might have different sensations,but none the less,they all indicate a seperation of the physical body and the consciousness.
As often happens,I detected the presence of another entity.Either one of two situations is occuring when this happens.It is either a negative entity,or a manifestation of your egos.I have encountered both in my travels,and while the negative entities can be very scary,they cannot harm you.Their purpose is to scare you away from the astral realm.A manifestation of the egos as a being is also common.The astral entites as egos will often appear as younger,almost adolescent beings as that is when we formed these psychological adjuncts called egos.They are fifth dimension entities who enter and leave as we entertain anger,greed,and so on.It is the "I,me mine",mentality that creates these entities.
Before you can leave your body and have an astral experience,the egos will depart first.You can sometimes hear them cursing,mumbling and so on as they depart,for they are the creations of negative thoughts that we all create,and we all creat them at a very young age.The entity that I encountered seemed to be an ego manifestation as it was young in appearance.I did manage to get hold of this entity and grab it,and fight with it.I should have tried to kill it,as this signifies your willingness to let go of the pride ,greed,anger and so on,but I did not.I always seem to stop short of killing the astral representation of the ego.This means I have more work to do.
I did however manage to explore some while in my astral body,but my visions was limited,and darkness can prevail.Either a person has limited consciousness or a negative entity can cause you to be in darkness.Either case,it was my fault as I did not do the necessary preparation for protection before I entered the astral realms.It does however take time to learn how to explore a new dimension.
As the "Good Book"says,"We wrestle not against flesh and blood,but against principalities,and spirits in high places".As I can attest,this is entirely acurate.The final frontier is not outer space,it is the higher dimensions,where you can travel to the edge of the galaxy in a few seconds.
