Did it work?

Post # 1

Hi there! So I recently rewatched How to train your dragon and was wondering whether or not I could find real species of dragons in the astral realm (I'm a curious person and once a question as interesting as this one finds me, it won't let go). So I tried astral projecting. I'm not sure, but I think this is the closest I've gotten to coming out of the body.

Basically, I imagined my astral body moving. Like each body part moving without the physical body moving alongside it. I'm guessing this is probably to create a disconnect between the physical and spiritual bodies.

So basically I kept on moving each body and slowly, it felt like I was somehow actually moving my body (and I wasn't physically moving anything). I also got a head-ache or something, which, if the method actually worked, is because I was either half-way through the process, or because I was practically banging my head onto the bed-head (I was imagining my head bobbing up and down, and may or may not have forgotten that there was a wooden board behind me).

It felt quite vivid and real, and I had to deal with a pounding head-ache afterwards while re-connecting my physical body back with the astral (cause I had to do that too).

So, did I manage to somewhat leave my body?Bare in mind that my eyes were closed for most of the while, so I didn't see anything)

It does indeed sound like you have gotten some success, though it is a little odd you would be feeling pain as a result. The act is a release, think of it as letting go of your physical perceptions. So it shouldn't generate the sorts of tension or strain that usually cause headaches or other physical issues.

Just by point of good practice, begin with the mundane possibilities. Did you lay in a good position, on a proper surface? Did you have good head and neck support? Were you indeed bonking your head against your headboard? Could it have been a function of fatigue, or the results of a stressful day? Did you begin with a few minutes of centering and mindful release of tension? Or did you spend any time mentally clearing your energy/aura/chakras?

Speaking of support, another hurdle some people have experienced is that once they start feeling deeply relaxed they might start to feel a tension or weight around the throat, as if they were suddenly in a too-snug collar. I learned this means as you relax, your head shoulders and neck settle so your airway stops being nice and open. The cure is to adjust the pillow you use, or maybe get rid of the pillow all together or change up to more of a small padded cylinder to tuck just under your neck. Something that adjusts your neck alignment so your airway stays open.

In some rare people, I suppose that the focus on energy and aura could stimulate old blockages or Karmic memories/events though. For example, when my great-aunt was first learning her healing practice, her jaw would inexplicably hurt. Sometimes enough to bring tears to her eyes. A friend of hers led her through some shadow work, and she ended up re-visiting a past life memory where she wasn't able to cure some nobleman son of a sickness, and her reward was a steel-gauntleted backhand that broke her jaw. The trauma in that past life made her subconsciously afraid to re-learn healing in this one, and that fear manifested as basically an extreme version of sympathy pain.

If you try many times and start experiencing the same symptoms whenever you reach the same state, then it might become a good idea to start exploring the discomfort. The easiest way is to ask yourself questions. "What exactly does this feel like?" "Does this pain have an emotion?" (If yes) "What is it and where does it come from, what thoughts does it stir up?" And so on.
