Red's Astral Projection "HELP!"
“It didn’t work. I just can’t do it.”
Astral Projection is possible for everybirdie, you don’t need to be a psychic/medium/the muse of Anubis to preform it. It does, however, take practice. It might take months of trial with no results. The best bet is to keep on trying different methods, times of day, and different positions. You’ll get it eventually.
“I got all the sensations, but I don’t think I projected. Was I close? How do I get farther?”
You were very close. This is about the time you’ll begin to get more and more of these, and you may even find yourself projecting soon enough. These are good signs, but remember, even if you don’t have them, it doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong. The best way to get farther is to reach for it. Sometimes literally. You keep pulling up, but you don’t ever get out? Try sitting right up. Try imagining yourself already out of your body with all your faith. That might be all it takes.
“I felt intense pain and pressure. It was so bad, I had to stop. But… I didn’t go anywhere. What happened? What is this?”
This is believe it or not energy pressure. It’s you focusing so hard that your enrrgy may be going into one spot, because you’re focusing it there. If you can, try to ignore it. This means you’re moving your energy around, which is a very good sign. There are some energetic exercises you can do to prevent this, look around at books and website resources.
“Is it common to see yourself from third person? How about someone repeating their statement multiple times?”
Yes, and yes. Third person views may be a varying array of things, but commonly it’s just your imagination playing tricks on you. Ever imagine how you look during the day? That’s all it really is, except you may actually see yourself better. This is really helpful for seeing what your kintype looks like, if you’re otherkin. It may be blurry or vague, but it’ll definitely help. And for the repetition- that usually means a weak signal. You might be half-awake, focusing on something else, or something else. I find it happens more commonly the further you travel. My canon is an entirely different time period and dimension at once, so it happens from time to time with me.
“I’ve been trying for 5 months. I’m afraid I’ll never get it.”
Once again, it takes practice. Sometimes AP won’t work when you are stressed or anxious or depressed. That could be the case, even if you don’t feel you are affected by any of those things. Give it time, try different methods, times, and everything you can. Invest in some incense (really cheap, you don’t have to buy a fancy holder if you don’t want to, and there are specific Astral Project-helping ones), some candles (I suggest black, white, grey, and blue. Very helpful for spiritual/meditation/projection), and dim light. You never know what might finally crack the code.
