From May 2016
I just love that OBE feeling, detaching from the physical is great way to get rid of stress. I became conscious after the exit, as sometimes happens, and was flying down the road in our neighbourhood. I looked down at what I was wearing and for some reason I was dressed in a short black jacket and I was carrying a wooden chair, both the jacket and the chair were heavy so I threw down the chair and took off the jacket. I think these items were symbolic of something weighing me down in the physical.
Anyway once those items were discarded I became lighter, I was so happy to be OBE and experience the lightness that comes with detachment from the physical. I was a bit too exhuberant so I calmed myself down as too much emotion in the astral can cut short an experience. Checking out local areas has never interested me and I hadn't set any intentions before sleeping which is a shame as I could have tried healing my knee, I have been experiencing some mild pain there lately.
I let my higher self decide for me and it got dark, not scary dark though, I flew very quickly just above some trees, the trees seemed familiar from other experiences, it started to get lighter and I saw a young man with red hair walking on a mountainside, he was on a trekking expedition to the top of the mountain. I stopped and went up to him, he was enjoying his walk, at the top of the mountain there was a castle with a tremendous view. I told him that I would have loved to accompany him but I was out-of-body and I knew my time was limited, my alarm clock would go off soon and then I would miss the view. I told him I'd fly up to the top.
So I flew up to the top of the mountain, went through a door into the castle, there were other people there, (no one was bothered by my flying, in some places people are and you have to tone yourself down a bit), I flew up to the highest point in the castle, I was still inside, there was a window through which I could see the sea, I always like views over the sea but a lady told me that that was not the spectacular view to be experienced. I then realised that the view was inside the castle and as I looked down what I saw was truly breathtaking but not visually, it was breathtaking in its depth and 'enormity of feeling', it reminds me of Koestler's description of what Freud calls 'oceanic feeling': (though this expression was originally coined by Romain Rolland).
"that expansion of awareness which one experiences on occasion in an empty cathedral when eternity is looking through the window of time, and in which the self seems to dissolve like a grain of salt in a lot of water.”
Aware that my alarm clock would be going off soon I left the castle, to get out I had to go through a kind of TV screen, then through another door, others were entering as I left. At this point I requested my higher self to take me to the lower astral regions to see if I could help out there but it wasn't to be. I stayed where I was, it was truely a lovely place, different styled houses and each ecologically friendly, information entered my mind that this was where sustainable housing, farming etc was developed for the Earth before arriving as a physical concept. I received the impression that I was looking at ideas from Earth's future as seen from my present point as Ali Wylie on my timeline.
I saw a celebration going on with lots of different kinds of food carried in different containers, there was lots of colour and happiness, they were celebrating how they had found the solution to food problems on the Earth, now everyone would have enough good healthy food.
I think the spectacular view within the castle was showing how the beauty and depth we carry inside is so much more meaningful than anything we may see or experience on the outside in our exterior worlds, this of course is nothing new in spiritual circles but these reminders are sometimes necessary to keep us on the right path.
