On 15th September 2010 I was house sitting with Michael at my Dad's house. It was morning time and Mick had just got up whilst I had a lie in! I suddenly felt myself going into a very relaxed state. So relaxed that I felt my body begin seizing up and become paralysed. This is something that happens when I am either about to leave my body or I am coming back to it. Occassionally I can do this consciously, for example roll out of my physical body and go wandering.
My immediate initial reaction was one of fear but I quickly realised that there was nothing to fear. So I relaxed, went with it and got to a point where I could now exit my body... Or so I thought. But it wasn't going to be that easy! Still paralysed the spiritual me was trying to pull myself out, legs, arms even head first. But it wasn't happening. It was like I had a weight on top of me keeping me in. I knew this was just down to practice but when I told Mick of this later he made a very good and important point which was this... Even though we are connected to our bodies by our etheric cords, if we could leave our body that easy it would be dangerous. What would happen if we were one day crossing a road and we suddenly slipped easily out of our physical body? The answer is quite simple. You'd probably fall infront of a truck! So therefore there has to be some safety measures. Whoever created us knew that. So that's why, without practice it can be difficult to consciously leave our body.
Anyway, when I relaxed I suddenly found myself outside of my body and floating above the bed! I realised that I could probably fly and so turned and headed for the bedroom window. I was in mid air and now looking out of the window. A very strange sight had anyone been able to see it! I then turned and flew towards the bedroom door, out into the hallway and down the stairs. I got right up to the living room door when I suddenly had a thought. Having read up on out of body experience and astral projection I could now go anywhere I wanted with a thought. "I know where I'll go" I thought... "The Moon"! Yep. That's where I was going. The Moon. So I thought of the moon and then found myself flying through space towards the moon. It was taking a while but started to get very close. So close that the Moon appeared so big to me it was taking up my whole perimeter of vision. I couldn't see anything else, just pot holes and a yellowish white haze.
I couldn't believe it. I was doing this consciously, I was actually nearly at the moon. I then started feeling ringing in the ears of my physical body and decided that the Moon now that I was close to it, seemed pretty boring. I was happy with the progress I had made and so made the decision to go back to my body so I could get up and tell Mick all about it. I thought of my body and then felt myself falling back towards it. I made sure I didn't land with a bump and integrated back with my physical body smoothly. I then got up out of bed and told Mick everything who seemed hardly surprised any more!
