Okay, so I have a need to tell this story here in detail. I'm open to hearing anyone's interpretation of what I experienced, but I should also say that my mind cannot be changed about the fact that it DID happen. The fact is the feeling I experienced was unlike anything I've ever felt, ever. It was completely indescribable by human terms, and despite my efforts, anyone reading will not quite understand just how it felt. That being said, here's my account of it:

I was in Iraq. I was in the middle of my first deployment and after a day or so of shift and convoying, I went to bed.

I dont remember the 'breaking through' part in any way really. But what I remember is finding myself in a dark 'hallway'. I call it a hallway, but it really wasn't. It was more or less a point in space with monitors lining an invisible wall to my right and to my left. In front of and behind me was white light, with darkness in between (where I stood) the monitors. I peered into a monitor and saw one of my best friends tapping away on a keyboard, playing some WoW or something. In the next monitor I saw on my best friend's (who was now dead) ex girlfriend doing something in her kitchen. In another monitor I saw another of his ex's watching tv.

*I should mention here that the friend i'm speaking of was my best friend in high school. He committed suicide. We had a very small (maybe 8 at most) tight knit group of friends, that included most of our ex gfs as well.*

The other thing I should mention at this point is the FEELING i had. I use the term feeling somewhat loosely here, because it wasn't so much a physical feeling. It was more like the ABSENCE of physical feeling. I felt no discomfort, no weight, no tightness, no anything. The feeling was so incredibly positive. It also felt warm somehow. From deep in my heart chakra. My entire essence tingled of this feeling. My immediate thought was that I was dead. But the kicker here is I felt no ill will or sadness about it. My family and friends on earth DID cross my mind in a fleeting instant, but only pleasant thoughts came. I didn't regret, and I didn't miss them. I also didn't spend more than an instant thinking of them.

Anyway, back in the astral. My best friend (the dead one) turns me around and gives me a huge hug. He then very nonchalantly says with a smile 'let's go! I've got so much to show you.' And we walk towards the end of the monitor-hallway. At the end (but before we reach the light) he stops in front of a mirror. I look into it and see myself in a form that seems to be shifting. Kind of like a funhouse mirror that keeps changing. Or looking at my reflection in ripples of water.

He says 'Just think of what you want to wear, and you'll have it.' I try to imagine myself in the black t-shirt and corduroy shorts I used to wear when he was alive and we were in high school. But the shirt comes out WAY too big (down past my knees) and the shorts are much too large in the waist, so I have to keep holding them up. He laughs at my attempts and says "you'll get it. but let's go, we dont have a lot of time."

At this point he takes off walking into the light with me still mesmerized by the mirror. I see he's leaving and I jog to catch up. When we pass through the light we are on a paved road with trees on either side. I remember it being kind of wet, like it had just rained. He is walking arm-in-arm with a girl. I never saw her face (i was behind them) but she appeared very good looking, and definitely his type. I've never seen him so happy...

Suddenly I hear a distant sound and I'm all in one instant sucked back into my body. What was very significant about this is that when I was, the feeling of positive energy and warmth and absence of body all disappeared immediately. It was like all at once I was feeling my 24 years of physical feeling (pain, fatigue, soreness, etc), virtually every physical feeling I've ever had i was sort of REMEMBERING or RE-EXPERIENCING all at once. This was NOT a good feeling. And on top of it, I also was feeling every single negative EMOTION i'd ever experienced in this world. It was as if pain, fear, anxiety, heartbreak, etc didn't exist where i was, and i had no memory or reference for it. But immediately upon my return it was all thrust upon me. Needless to say, I- a 24 year old badass United States Marine- started sobbing loudly and uncontrollably. I wanted more than any want I've ever had to be back there. My brain immediately started thinking about my family and friends as if I should feel guilty for wanting to leave them (which was notable also because I had no such feelings while I was THERE). I sobbed for a good 10 minutes before I was able to calm myself down.

________________________________________________

I've lots of theories about what may have happened. I've hypothesized that somehow I was sucked from this world into one of the highest dimensions. Literally, I can only ascribe the feeling of being there to being in heaven. Another theory I had is that a mortar landed on my trailer while i slept and killed me (this had happened before to others)- but for some reason, I was granted a second chance and awoke in my bed with all the memory of having been there, but none of what happened before. Lastly, I've thought perhaps I was just being pulled up for a visit.

I really dont know what this was. It was like AP, but with a much more intense FEELING that I am completely unable to describe. I should also mention, this happened long before I ever learned about AP, or that I could do it. I researched and learned to project later, partially looking for an explanation to this as well as my sleep paralysis.

This was the single event that proved to me beyond all doubt that our consciousness persists beyond death. I've never had a doubt since then. I simply know.

Any thoughts, opinions, stories, theories, etc are much appreciated.

 It sounds like you had a successful projection and found a guide that you would be comfortable with. As in your deceased friend. He then proceeded to do what a guide does, which is to show you the ropes. Like thought = action, he is also showing you that he is OK. That death is not the end but just another experience in your total existence. My first guide was my deceased Brother in-law. He was kind of like a role model for me while he was living, so he was a perfect choice in the Astral as well. You have also had a emotionally memorable experience here. One that will keep you going back for more. I wouldn't worry about which dimension you went to right now, that understanding will come at a later time. Now is the time to learn and to enjoy your experiences. Your questions will be answered in due time. I feel that the Astral World beckons us when we are ready to accept it in our reality.  smiley

I haven't seen him since in the astral. I occasionally do see him in dreams though.

I have successfully projected about a dozen times or so since then. I have recently met my first guide after months of asking for one, but I haven't met him (Steve, my friend) again in the astral. I thought about asking my guide to see him, but for some reason this seemed like too much to ask upon first meeting. I decided to save it for later Smiley

Maybe the point was just to show me, like you said. Either way, you're right in that it did leave me wanting more! I now attempt several times a week, and I am starting to get better Smiley

 What do you see as the difference between the Astral and your dreams? Dreams are something we view, the Astral is when we start to control what occurs in them.

It sounds like an incredibly vivid F23 experience to me in which you have landed in the personal 'zone' of your deceased best friend. Wow, what an experience.  shocked

To give you some context, F23 experiences are ones where you kind of hang out with a lost soul for a while. It's just the two of you. You usually do some pretty cool stuff. It's also always world in which this other entity creates. In this case, the ex's, would be generated by him.

I have had a good handful of these experiences. You get to notice the similarities after a while. The biggest is that you are like totally buddy buddy with one other entity for the length of the experience. The cool thing is that you were actually buddies at some point in this case. I can't say I have been in any in which I couldn't identify the other entity, but now you got me thinking.  smiley

I wouldn't really call your friend a guide. He has died, yes, was confused, realizes that he can manifest anything instantly and is living in a self created world, is not confused anymore, and before he goes on, it may have been he wanted to see you. I don't like what I just said b/c I am speaking for his intent, but regardless, you both connected, you get the idea. Man, I am getting all mushy just thinking about your experience. Go go mirror neurons.

So souls in this F23 state aren't suffering, but they haven't moved on to the greater community yet. My interpretation is that this experience was just that. A connection before your bro bounced out. The PUL you felt in the experience was put into context when it was taken away. I have cryed many times after coming out of a projection too. I am also 24 macho male. I mean PUL is just so good, so good, that when you come away from it an look down at your existence, and it finally puts your physical lives into a context; you really see the inevitable tragedy of physical life all at once. All the pain you have went through and will have to go through before you can really have that PUL and not have to suffer any longer. And it hurts. It hurts bad when it hits you all at once like that. But persevere. Accept death and persevere. That combo makes you into a powerhouse on this physical plane.

3toed- I know this experience was a while ago, but you are turning into a greater projector, keep it up.

Cheers,
Contenteo

You pretty much described it yourself. My dreams are more or less uncontrolled. i dont realize i'm dreaming, and the story plays out. My projections are different. I know what I am, where I am, and I am in control, absent my body.

I need to learn more about these 'levels' that a lot of people here are applying to everything. Any good links explaining all this? I know Monroe's books are supposed to be helpful, and I will read them in time. But in the meantime, links?

If so, then you are very lucky and skilled! I'd give anything to feel that way again!

I respect your theory, but i'd rather not think about him as being somewhere, confused, unsure of where he is or how to advance. I still kind of feel like he was in the 'heaven' dimension, but had created his own little spot (a dark room with computers and social media would be SOOOO his style, lol) and invited me to it.

Can you break down this acronym?

I'm getting better every day! I dont know when/if I'll ever be back to somewhere so elevated that I feel that 'PUL' as you put it, but I'd like to think so! It truly was a phenomenal experience, and it has been my single motivating reason to keep working on projecting. My recent experience with my first 'guide' has also served as a huge motivator! I'm hoping now that I've reached that milestone things will start to get much more interesting, and hopefully I'll be able to do it more and more at will.

Greetings 3toedsloth
Sounds to me like you had an After Death Communication (ADC) with a close friend in a modern non-physical belief system territory (BST). Your friend was probably trying to tell you that he was okay and was living in an astral counterpart location that he was both familiar and comfortable with. Maybe he had even begun a relationship with one of the inhabitants there.
All in all an uplifting experience, thanx for sharing it.  smiley

Sincerely  cool

Yeah, as I wrote that, I knew it would hurt, I almost took it out, but knew it was important. I mean imagine death yourself. You die. Then you have a forced projection. And if your know whats happening, you have to be like "crap" I died. It's almost like a gave over screen, without a continue. What do you do? Go make food or something. But if you didn't have context that the game just ended, you would be confused. That's what I meant by confusion.

F23 is exactly that. It is the place where souls get thrown. They make there niche and then they eventually "pass on" to higher dimensions. A self preserved limbo. A lonely fantasy world. If you had that, wouldn't you want to share it with the ones who mattered most? You are lucky to have had such a great friend.

I know death is a rough subject, but my disposition is and has been, they are in a better place now. If they are suffering, I'll focus my intent as strong as I can to help then not be stuck. To the living, that sux, but they are in a better place. A place we can all be excited to be, once our purpose(whatever it is) is finished.

I understand the point you're making. But from my experience, anytime i've been in the 'astral' my feelings aren't of loneliness or missing my loved ones. Even in this particular experience where I 'thought' that i had in fact died. So to that end, I dont think being lonely is something we have to worry about- these feelings simply do not exist there (as far as i've experienced).

I appreciate your explanation, and I hope you dont think otherwise! Please dont hesitate to say ANYTHING for fear of offending or 'hurting my feelings'. The point of boards (as far as I had thought) is to relay experience and knowledge to others. There should be NO CENSORSHIP in this regard (although this is something i've recently dealt with on this board).

Due to my experience with AP, i do not fear death in any way. I welcome it and am in fact excited (as you put it) to move on once my time here is complete. I love the fact that I get little 'sneak-peaks' through AP every now and then though Smiley

Yeah, lonely was the wrong word. 'Alone' would have been more appropriate.

I was eluding the the fact that many 'souls' can get trapped in a F22 hellish zone if they are not careful. In addition, I have a fair share of F23 experiences where I was with a singular entity and we were "playing" of sorts, almost as if they had no one else to play with. One particular experience was one of those seemingly multi-day experiences.

I agree with you, no censorship, I was just trying to be sensitive because I can imagine seeing a deceased friend in the astral is a pretty jarring experience, even under a good context.
