| | My experiences with AP
My name is Rachelle and this is my first post. I am very interested in both Erin and Steve's blogs.
The topic of astral projection and leaving one's body has always fascinated me. Probably because I long to explore the universe and see the stars.
My father has had paranormal experiences including leaving his body, so I've always been wondering about what is out there and wished that I might have similar experiences. He told me about his first (at least I think it was his first) experience as a child, and I am compelled to share it here. He was in a car on a road trip with his family. And he recalls that suddenly he was no longer in the car, but outside it, above it, and I believe he said he could 'see' 360 degrees around at once, unlike what human vision is like. He said he became aware of a dark-cloud like entity that was near by, and it saw and noticed him and at first it was afraid (or shocked?), but then it soon saw him as no threat and it ignored him. the cloud lowered to the car to the engine, and when that happened the car promptly had car problems and stalled - or maybe it was a tire that blew. My dad said this cloud-figure, or something like it, has made several appearances in his life, and was there when he was in an accident over a decade ago where he injured his knee.
I've never personally experienced anything like my father has. I think I may have left my body once or so, and perhaps been in that state but stayed in my body a few other times in the past. But nothing has been very exciting - The first time was when I was about.. oh, I guess I was 14? I think I just kind of 'floated' up to the ceiling in my room. I was never sure if that's actually what happened and always wondered if I simply imagined or dreamed it. But when I read Erin's blog and the references about the high pitched sound and buzzing, I'm almost certain that it did happen in my case as well - so maybe I actually have had a semi-sort of out of body experience, after all.
I'd certainly like to experience something more exciting. But knowing there are bad spirits out there worries me and I'm not sure if it's worth the risk.
Anyway, I guess that's enough for my first post?
I have questions I would like to ask, so I guess I should start a new thread for that (I think?). Yeah, I'm quite the newb - literally. heheh.
