Oh yeah...then there's the dog-thing.
I went out of body one night and went downstairs to see if my dog could see my astral body. I thought -(because that's how conscious you are in a true Astral projection) -if he can see me that's pretty good feedback.
When I went down, he was lying in an unusual position on his bed, half under, and half out of a little blanket that he liked to go under at night. Well, he did see me, he looked up. He did recognize me, and wagged his tail (the blanket was wagging about all over the place) Then he sighed and went back to sleep, like "Astral Body? No big deal"
I went back to my body straight away. I got up quickly which is always a bad idea because it makes me feel dizzy and nauseous if I do it too fast after being out.
Anyway I had to check that what I had seen was true. I went quickly downstairs. And sure enough he was lying in the same unusual position I had seen him in when out of body. He looked up again but just looked very bored this time "Oh no, not you again"
I rarely got those kinds of projections where I had brilliant control, and sometimes when I wanted to go out I couldn't, so found it hard to set up definite arranged meetings with friends or family for clear verifications.
