Laying down at an angle helps with OBEs
I had a little more astral projection success last night. I took a nap after work, then got up again later for a few hours, did a little work and had one drink, before going back to bed.
As an experiment lately, instead of laying down completely flat, I've been sitting up at about a forty-five degree angle when I go to bed, with my back supported by a bean bag chair and some pillows. I've been doing this for a few weeks now, and it seems to have helped me have more OBEs and lucid dreams, though I haven't taken any time to record them all here.
Last night I did the usual, just laying still, clearing my mind, and waiting. After a short period I didn't really feel any vibrations, but instead just slipped out of the body, drifting out to the left. I quickly bumped into a wall that I couldn't move through. I then looked up, and moved up and through the ceiling. Once over the ceiling, I moved out through a closed window.
Once outside, I paused for a moment, and then I found myself pulled being pulled away. As usual, I went along for the ride, and along the way I heard a female voice say "Mesopotamia". At the end of the trip I was drawn to a woman, and, well, I'll skip the rest of the story.
It's important to note that as soon as I left my body, the architecture of the building was wrong. When I went up through the ceiling I came to some type of loft, then went out through the window I saw. This has happened a lot lately, and I'm not sure what I can do about it, if anything. But it's very disappointing that as soon as I leave the physical body everything is wrong, because if things aren't right as soon as I leave my body, how can I expect them to be right if I'm trying to go somewhere far away?
I'm also discouraged that my mind in this state goes along with the wrongness of this environment. I don't always think "Oh crap, this isn't right", sometimes, like last night, I just go along with what's there, not realizing it was wrong until later.
