I have been experiencing sleep paralysis very often lateley almost every night and my mother told me it is very similar to astral travel and to try to travel out of my body the next time i have sleep paralysis. So the next time it happened i tried to stay calm and tried to float off and all of a sudden i could feel my body vibrating at intense speeds, thats when i got scared and started to panic and got the usual sufforcating feeling and tried to call my girlfriend to wake me up but couldn’t untill i finally wake up damn near flying off the bed onto the floor. Was that vibrating sensation a sign on astral travel? And when i got through slaap paralysis i cant see anything because my eyes are closed. and when i finally get to astral travel, how do I know if i’m just dreaming or not? And is Astral travel even real?
