I tried astral projection for the first time last night. I had set a tourmaline to ground me to my body, two lapis and a moon stone to increase my psychic energy, two citrine to keep my energy cleansed and two silver coins with protective symbols in them to prevent any sort of foreign possession. I closed my eyes and cleared my head to project myself to my girlfriends because I miss her but I projected something I knew for sure couldn't be real. I saw my home town burning and my girlfriend dead on the floor of my room. I had spoken with her today and saw that she was fine but I am still confused as to what this means. If anyone could help me understand this I would be eternally greatful
Although astral traveling might be a true experience which we are able to visit physical world and other dimensions but you should make sure that your astral body has projected into the Real Time Zone (a zone between physical and astral world) which is the closest area to our physical world!
only in this area you can see the real things in our universe. but if you travel to astral world then reality is highly distorted and you will mostly see your subconscious manifestation plus emotion and thoughts!
in order to enter to Real Time Zone, you should highly control your thought and emotion before and during astral projecting which is of course a little tricky at first!
