What have you experienced during sleep paralysis or astral projection?

I'll share one of mine to start us off. I was in my bed, laying on my stomach. I got paralysis and felt like there was a man under me that I was laying on. He didn't speak or anything, and I couldn't see his face. The experience left me kind off confused..

Sleep paralysis is a perfectly normal physical occurence that takes place in the inbetween state between dreaming and waking. It has nothing to do with the occult.

Just because it's physical doesn't mean that it has nothing to do with the occult, though. Otherwise, why would this website have a shop? Why bother to have a wand, or crystals, or tarot cards? Why would many distinguished spiritual traditions have chemognosis (the use of iboga root or peyote cactus or fly agaric, in the case of Delphi Oracles, sulphur) to help their spiritual visions? Sometimes fasting or a vegetarian diet can affect the spirit, even though food in the body is only physical.

I believe that consciousness can be a liminal area, like in faelatry traditions where there are "doorways" at dusk or dawn, or bridges, or thresholds. Sometimes, the doorway is in the mind between waking and sleeping.

All that said, I did try to keep it scientific. I would shuffle a pack of cards and leave them at the top of the bookshelf without looking at them. I shouldn't be able to see them, I decided, unless I could astral project. But the way to move out of body was difficult for me, so I could never go where I wanted to go. I could wall through walls, but I couldn't get past walls that weren't physically there.

It's a very silly place.

One time, I tried to peek behind my friend's shoulder (she was physically in the same room, borrowing my computer while I meditated) and there was this force field around her that pushed me away. It made me wonder if there was a danger in astral projecting, not only leaving one's own body "open to possession" (that I don't believe can happen anymore because neuroscience actually does have so much to do with our experiences, however we interpret that) but getting sucked into somebody else's body if they don't have as strong a personality as my friend (which I believe is what gave her such a strong aura.)

Allow me to share another theory for this aura field you mentioned. I have heard spirit guide(s) create an energy field to protect you from any possible threats.

And yes, I know that sleep paralysis is a normal physical occurrence, but I believe it can be used as a form of communication, just like we use normal everyday tools and ingredients for occult purposes.
