The first several times I astral projected it was not at all conscious. It was like all the molecules in my body sped up. I felt this tingling, electric, magnetic feeling, like imagine if a magnet was pulling your soul out of your body. It was horrible because at the time it was unwanted.
Once I got used to the sensation, I was able to allow it to come into me when I wanted. What usually happened was that I woke up in the wee morning hours, but was still in a very alpha state, and I would open and allow the tingling electrical feeling to come over me. Once it was all inside me, I knew I was separated and I would pull away from my shell. Once I disconnected, I would fly off and do whatever.
I don't astral project much these days. I'm too tired and it seems so unnecessary. But occasionally I'll pop out for some fun or to check on my kids down the hall. And occasionally there comes something a'knockin that needs to be dealt with.
I wouldn't know how to induce this today if I was just starting out. It happened to me unwillingly first, then I recognized the sensation, so I was able to call it into me. Does that make sense?
