BTW, my appearance is only slightly different (Darker hair, very pale skin, so I have a very high contrast), but that's because I'm always in focus 10. So I wonder if it's different in other places or if the appearances are a reflection of something else.

I can recall seeing my astral/ethereal body only once in a mirror during an OBE. Except for the (astral) clothing that I wore my astral body Was the same as my physical body.

I've seen it a few times, and each time it's been different.  Once I was radically different, another time just a little different, and once I looked 'normal'.

That's interesting. Likewise for me, I've thought to check for my reflection 3 times and each time was different. The last time I seemed 'normal'; the second time I looked slightly out of focus and 'ghostly'; the first time was rather a shock as I appeared to be lacking an epidermal layer of skin, so what I saw was this mass of muscle and sinew, although it was not correctly arranged anatomically. The impression I got was "this is a big package of meat'. Very unsettling moment.

Several months back, in the Members Artwork section, someone posted a drawing of his reflection in a mirror and it was very similar to the 'meat package' image that I saw. It shocked me into remembering my own incident. The artwork is gone now, I guess lost when the Forum went down.

Your reflection will be whatever you subconsciously believe it'll be.  In most cases, it'll be what you fully expect... YOU.
It's a default reflection of your inner expectations.  If that makes any sense.  Smiley

With that said... I can't really remember a time when I looked at myself in a mirror in the non-physical.  Hmmm.

I never have seen a reflection of myself in the NP, but will try to have a look some time.   smiley
