my parents say when i was young i used to go to sleep and then wake up screaming at the cieling saying someone was there..when i was about in the 5th grade i slept in a bunk bed where i had this dream of two ghostlike characters looking at me while i sleep and when they see that i see them (though i pretend to be asleep) they float into me and i lose coinciousness,the thing is i forgot about this dream and many other same ones to come in my different rooms over the years but then after one dream when i was 14 i remembered it AND i also remembered that i have been having this dream for years!i can never tell if im actually dreaming or if this is going on in my room because that is the dream.
Cancer-Leo, try to concentrate on flying before you fall asleep. I used to do this before I learned how to exist my body with my silver cord attached, and it worked most times.
Just focus on flying, soaring high in the atmosphere, and keep doing it until you fall asleep flying ... this will signal to your unconscious mind that you wish to astrally project. It will take several attempt, probably because you have to program your psyche that you want to exit through your crown .. just keep trying until you're able to.
If your dream was real, you'll be able to visit it at will.
