How 'far' have you gone during an astral projection?
I mean far, as in how intense have they gotten, also the actual meaning of far... as in how far from your body. How real did it feel?
From my retina to my optical nerve. I'm really inside myself.
But this one time I saw golden structures which sort of resembled castles, and sanguine vistas.
not that real
I reached already the 8th sense and improved a lot my microcosmo, but I'm working hard on reaching the 9th sense.
Your imagination can take you as far as you like. Astral projection is imaginary.
About 5 feet from my bed. As soon as I realized I wasn't in my body I freaked out. It happened only once when I was about 15 years old. It was pretty intense and I woke up. It seemed pretty real and at that time I didn't know anything about astral projection.
I went about two miles away. It was at night. I floated. No one could hear me or see me. It was both strange and a little scary. Every time I got really scared, I was immediately jerked back into my body.
It felt very real, but once it spiraled past my toilet bowl, I could not track it any further - oops sorry, I thought you said as*tral..
Haven't because I prayed to God to protect me from evil. And that's a wiccan belief not mine.
This might sound a bit nitpicky, but "far" only really applies to etheric (RTZ) projection - astral projection proper can take you to entirely different realms of existence, so distance back to your body ceases to be a meaningful concept for them. A very long way!
"Real" can also mean two things when you're projecting...some of my experiences have been amazingly vivid and immersive but not even remotely realistic - cartoon worlds if you like. Others have seemed profoundly physical despite having barely any visual quality at all.
