I completely relaxed and mentally stimulated my chakras. My body went numb and I began to ‘vibrate.’ My heart was really POUNDING really fast. My breathing was also dramatically increased, as if i had just ran a mile as fast as I could. From the perspective of an observer, I highly doubt that I appeared “asleep” or even remotely relaxed. However, I focused on not moving an inch of my body and quite frankly I felt numb and paralyzed. The only really motion was coming from my heavy breathing and heavily ‘pounding heart.’ Some say that this is actually the Heart Chakra in action. It feels so real though. With my eyes closed, I could have sworn that even my chair was rocking to the sides from the vibration. Are the ‘vibrations’ supposed to be physical? Or just internal? Because it felt like I was on a boat sailing in the ocean. I did, however, reach a point where my eyes were involuntarily fluttering under my closed eye lids. Was this the REM stage? What can I do to fully project? Is it dangerous that my heart pounds fast? Or is it all in my head (HEART CHAKRA)? Is it normal to breathe so heavily?
Same thing happened to me right now. Came here looking for answers. However after the experience I checked my heartrate and it was only at 87 bpm. So does this mean it was just the heart chakra? Considering 87 bpm is nothing to be alarmed of. I’m still unclear but I experienced everything you’ve all said; fast heart rate (seemingly) , vibrating body, fluttering eyes, watery eyes and a little light, Mine was blue though. Interesting that’s for sure.
I am a bit late but I actually lived the same thing not too long time ago when trying an astral projection (almost 2 years ago). I remember my I was relaxing for like 10 minutes ans trying to roll out method and then I switched to the ladder method. It was exactly at this moment that I had my heart starting o bet more nd more heavily. I don’t know what happened. After I couldn’t stay like this so I sit on my bed (I was layn) and my chest did stop the pounding only like 5 seconds later. I don’t know if this is heart or chakra because my heart, when POUNDING like this does take a full minute usually. After, I just slept and thought hard about it, but I didn’t try it again. I think I am going to do this tonight and we’ll see what happens. If I don’t reply to this comment 2~3 days after posting it, I am not good. I’ll do everything to share you my experience. BRB
Leslie, why would you do that? Put fear into the very people doing OBEs there is nothing wrong with your heart pounding, your body is getting used to this new experience. Stop being so fear driven, there is nothing to fear. It’s people like you that give OBE a bad name
Bro I legitametly felt the same thing not too long ago. I had on some binaural beats and for like two hours straight I was reaching toward that exact same stage. I was just wondering if you were able to figure out a way outside of that stage. When I experienced those same feelings I didn’t know what to do next, I kept trying the rope method but eventually it just faded away. It would be much appreciated if you could give any suggestions on that?
I’ve been able to lucid dream for years, before I even knew it was a thing. When I was a young teen I got the idea, “what if I could create and control my own dream?” And pretty much the first time I focused on that, I was successful. My friends looked at me like I was crazy lol. But because I experienced that, it forced me to find myself more spiritually. The more I did, and started to really understand body and soul and inner light, astral projection didn’t just seem possible to me, I accepted as fact, my portal into the greater world of possibilities and knowledge. For a couple years now, I’ve made a few uninspired and uniformed efforts into AP. Just today, I found a formula that works. I had always tried at night with binaural beats. Today I tried in the morning, shortly after I woke up, in complete silence.I laid down and focused on my breathing. Once I felt really relaxed, I began “the rope technique”, which, I had only recently learned about. As I focused my thought on that it felt like my right foot was under a lot of weight. About as soon as I recognized that feeling, it seems there was a short period of time that my thoughts and feelings left me and for just a moment, there was just nothing. Then seemingly instantly, I felt my body shuddering or vibrating quite violently. Before I got alarmed though, I realized I was on the verge and got a little excited, a little nervous and at that time I realized my heart was pounding out of my chest. I hadn’t heard or read anything about the heart reacting that way to that point and a bit of panic set in. But I thought to myself, “you’re there! You’re right there! Keep focusing!” And as I tried to push on, my eye lids began to flutter and thinking back on it now (this happened a couple hours ago, so memory is fresh),I could see a tiny but bright light shining through my fluttering eye lids all the while my body shaking like an earthquake. My eyes started to water and as I tried to process everything that was happening, I felt like I had missed my window and just focused back on my body and calming it down. I tried to get back to that “vibration” stage again, but was unsuccessful. But I keep thinking about all the little details of it now and realize, at the peak with my body shaking, my heart pounding, my eyes fluttering and tearing up, I truly felt the ability to step out of this reality. I felt like there was two halves to myself laying there. My bottom half, my body lying there in suspended animation, my upper half, my energy or spiritual being hovering half way out half way in my physical body. Even when I fully came to and got out of bed, I felt different. Like everything I know around me felt different. I know I was close. CLOSE. And excited for the possibilities when I learn to better control this and fully project. Now I feel I understand how it all feels and I can just keep practicing. This universe we live in is an AWESOME place and I’m excited to explore it in ways few people can or understand.
The same thing happened to me. The vibrations went from my toes up to my hands and then my heart started to pound really hard. They say that the trigger to leave the physical body lies in our most active chakras. It might be our heart chakra which is most active?
last night i felt this same very thing, i was relaxed and i felt as if someone poked me in the toe, right afterwards the exact same thing you described happend.
any good reference will tell you not to do this. it’s alway’s dangerous when your heart pounds.
That sounds like a panic attack.
Seek the advise of an experienced projector.
It only happened to me once and it was spontaneous I didn’t even know what was happening,
Until years later when I read about it and realized I had an out of body experience..
