Hello Sen, I don't what made you think to delete your account. I hope you are doing well with your spiritual experiences.
You can send a mail to "firstname.lastname@example.org" (Admin) regarding the issue, he will be able to help.
Do you believe in the scientific explanation, that it's only your body asleep while your mind is awake?
Or do you think it's something more sinister or supernatural?
I had an instance whilst lying with my boyfriend. We were both in full conversation when he suddenly froze in place. A few several moments later, and he said he heard footsteps approaching, and he couldn't move and part of his body. He claimed not to be able to hear me, as if I was very distant or warped. This was the only time I can recall ever witnessing anyone fully awake while enduring this. I had no idea it had even happened to him.
I'm Christian myself, and although I've never astral projected, my uncle has and he is a religious man. I haven't spoken to him on his beliefs on the subject, though.
Personally, I can't be too sure if projecting is good or bad to practice. Some ways it could be good, maybe to seek enlightenment, travel... but there are spirits who would lie to you, and make you want to believe in things that aren't true, so putting yourself in a position to have to decipher what is real and isn't may be putting your faith at risk. You may put others faiths at risk by spreading false information. It puts you yourself, your mind, at an unnecessary risk. You're opening doors with this stuff. Unless you're called to do it, there's no legitimate reason to have to practice it and put yourself in an undesirable situation.
Dr Alexander De Foe, the guy who recently edited and published the free ebook "Consciousness Beyond the Body: Evidence and Reflections" is trying to raise funds for some really interesting sounding research into OBE's. I've contributed to this, I think it's a great cause, OBE's are certainly worthy of more research than they have received so far. I feel that OBE's are kinda getting left in the dust in research terms and there is a dire need for some new research, and I kinda feel more could be being done here than just focussing on the lab induced autoscopy pseudo-OBE's, which I view as something quite distinct (while sharing some overlap) with a "real deal", full blown OBE. I grow a tad weary of neuroscientists claiming they have "proven" how OBE's occur, when in my view they haven't, or at least they are only seeing a small...(continued)
Your opinion, I will answer your questions. :)

Neither the voice nor the man can be explained in one paragraph or in any combination of words. He is essence of, manifestation of, emanation of . . . and his vitality, his magic and his integrity cannot be articulated in electronic swipes of ink on a papyrus of light particles captured on a computer screen. So we invite you to feel his work through what you sense reading these words and listening to the sound bites, which can no more adequately capture his voice than words can portray the man.
Tom's life studies and many lifetimes of remembrances, complete with background knowledge and experience allow him to move with equal facility between Tibetan Buddhism, Egyptian High Alchemy, Taoism and Hinduism and the...(continued)
OOOh... I'm loving the scientific outlook there. Brilliant. I have also caught myself thinking and reflecting on my own processing and cognition...
One can experience the abstractionist side of the mind with a great, albeit bogus, sense of understanding, as in ordinary dreams, and paradoxically think of the very same experience as nonsensical in the waking state. I bring this up, because, a shocking insight came to me while I was thinking about ways to improve memory. I imagined a scenario where I was being mnemonically tested. In my imagination, I was in a room and a person would come in wearing something that would have to be remembered later. A second person would enter the room and again I would have to remember the details of what they were wearing. In addition, their names and the order in which they appeared would have to be...(continued)
