So I'm sort of new to the entire Astral Projection practice, but I think I came close once. I was listening to binaural beats on YouTube and my body felt extremely light. But all I saw was darkness when I tried to do anything and I freaked out. I haven't come anywhere near as close again yet. Was this my first experience? It happened last year. Also, any tips for a beginner?
What i see in your post is good for your first try. I think your spirit wanted to go to the astral realm, but couldn't. So i reccomend visualizing your spirit leaving your body. The body parts that you should visualizize leaving are the forearms,and lower half of legs. Then you should slowly visualizize the legs and arms then coming all the way out and floating above your body angled at the cieling at a 90 degree angle.Your head and chest area should be next but let the vibrations take a hold in the area before separation
