Hi, I’m new to the craft. Studying solitarily since i am in the military and currently deployed. So its been kind of tough trying to learn on my own. It takes a while to get mail so i havent ordered any supplies or books to help, all i have are internet searches and hopefully some advice from you all. I would like to know what i could do to help in my studies? Also, I would like some input on something that happened to me today. I have been meditating everyday, working on getting better on my concentration and breathing techniques. Today i felt so deeply relaxed that it was like i wasnt physically in my room anymore. I was trying to visualize white light, but instead of just a beam of light i saw swirls of white light moving and pulsing, i started focusing on my third eye chakra and the lights shifted from white to blue. It was an amazing feeling. I figured then would be aas good a time as any to attempt astral projection again, so still focusing on my breathing and the colors, i layed down and tried to let go. Only, everything ive read definately did not prepare me for what happened. I couldnt see anything at all, the colors disappeared and i was just there in completely darkness. I was having a conversation with my sister (who was freaking out! she kept asking me if i was dead) but i couldnt see anything i couldnt even move. And when i tried to focus on being able to see her i jolted upright in my bed. It didnt feel like a dream and i most definately didnt feel like i had been asleep. I was just as awake as i had been before my meditation. I was just wondering if anything like this has ever happened to anyone before? or if someone could please explain to me what exactly happened? Ive been searching all afternoon since my meditation but i havent been able to find anything. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Please only serious responses no rude or hurtful remarks from non believers. Just because i choose to follow a different path then you doesnt mean im any less human or feel any less then you do. Thank You all in advance. Blessed Be
