thanks for the feedback, I give the thread a break, because I have to use the "creative capacities" for university right now, I'll come back in 6 weeks with new content, I'll accelerate it then, because I have then some free time, but questions will be answered all the time, I don't leave.
Thank you for dropping in. I'm happy you have success so far!
Ah yes it's often no coincidence, often it's enough to read on a subject to get an experience, that's why I say that people who are not into something they should read it nevertheless. You never know what you did/do in other lifes or when not being incarnated (if you don't check it).
The first time I read about channeling, I channeled that night some very high vibrational beings and my head felt like being in a microwave, I don't remember sleeping that night.
Your symptoms are good, you can be happy with yourself, going there so quick. Stay calm if you then about to hear weird astral noises or a "energetic pull" through your body, these ones happen often to beginners.
I think you can already separate when you are sleeping in in the mornings. When one of your children cries in the night/morning, than you could be the one to stand up, because after going back to sleep again, it's likely to become lucid at least (has to do with REM-sleep-phases and your body being already in a good state for this).
If you are astral: rub your hands to deepen, try to touch much of your environment and say to your higher self "Give me clarity".
This because you'll most likely be blind and moving like a helpless puppy
Okay some factors, because there will no update for a long time now, but I'll cover them with more detail then:
You should completely release all tensions in your body, that's what I meant with inner/outer correlation in the text, I'll write more about it.
You should strain your muscles and release until you feel that every part is relaxed.
Light clothing and no watches/jewelry and so on. The best would be none!
The temperature also plays a role, make it more warm than cold.
Deepening your trance states, maybe try different approaches, the elevator works good for me.
You can use the alarm clock to wake you up very shortly, maybe 2 hours before you regular wake-up-time, just so that you realize being awake and have still that heavy sleepy feeling. When you fall asleep now, don't focus too much, but have it in your back head.
It's likely to have OBE's/lucid dreams when going back to sleep again.
A bit energetic work, like chi-breathing is not bad either in the evenings.
Let it go, the feeling of letting it go should not be interrupted by thoughts.
If you like the idea of Archangels, you can call on Archangel Michael before going to sleep/before sleeping in for some days with a clear intention. He will do this most likely in the middle of the night or morning hours. When he lifts you out you can even talk to him, he is present, you must initiate the conversation and see what happens. Works with your guides/angels too.
(I personally recommend to give this one a try)
Some people prefer facing with their head north and optionally full moon, don't know what effect it has, I personally don't even project lying on my back.
Work with your chakras, open them before going to bed, often it's enough to use visualizations here.
I feel too that you should work on your lower three ones, especially your solar plexus longs for attention.
Is there sometimes a place in yourself where you are raging?
Intent, intent, intent but never be frustrated.
Much of what we do will feel silly and uncomfortable or we won't be motivated, but one day it's very normal.
Brain Storming is today also accepted, though it's for many more consulting their intuition
Let us know how you go!
And it's important to ask questions and to communicate, we are mostly unconscious about the reality working behind this.
