Astral Spiritualist Church / Workshop – The beautiful Congregation

I spent the night in the spare bedroom. I had a rotten cold and didn’t want to disturb my wife who has had trouble sleeping of late. Before going to sleep I used a repeated affirmation, “I, out-of-body Now!” I used this each time I woke during the night to get back to sleep.

I had a dream where I had visited my friend Duncan. We hadn’t seen each other for ages. I visited his flat (In physical reality, it was my old flat). Whilst there I was showing him something on my laptop computer, when I noticed it had become hacked. Somebody was now controlling the screen. They were opening the web browser and moving things around. This really worried me; I went into the security settings in an attempt to block them. After a while their activity stopped. Duncan’s wife was in their living room (My old living room). The layout of their flat mirrored a flat I had lived in with my brother when we were in our twenties.

Duncan suggested we go into another room to relax away from the computer and catch up on old times. As we entered this other room (In reality this would have been my old bedroom), I noticed he had converted it into a huge space. The room looked ten times bigger than it would normally. The furniture was positioned as if it was a spiritualist church. All down the middle of the room/hall was seating for people. At the front of the room was a raised stage and rostrum/table. The room now resembled a hall. The transformation was stunning.

People now started to fill the hall. Everybody was extremely attractive and in their prime. I looked around at some of the lady’s; they were in beautiful smart dresses. They appeared to be in their twenties. They all looked very familiar, I couldn’t quite place them but assumed they must have been T.V stars. The feeling you get when you know people’s faces but you can’t place them.

I decided to sit on a bench far at the back. I felt a little bit out of place due to my sleeping attire. The room was now filled with these young beautiful people. A pretty blond lady took to the stage and sat behind the rostrum in preparation. I had the impression she was going to give clairvoyance. I then got the impression that all the other people in the room also had this gift.

My friend had now disappeared. I was now sitting by myself. Suddenly, I started to feel intense vibrations rocking through my body as I sat on the wooden bench. I felt myself bouncing up and down very fast on the bench. It was uncontrollable. I felt really embarrassed. I just couldn’t control it, I’m sure the bench must have been making an awful noise and I was disturbing the tranquility of the room. Then a lady who was sitting behind me put her hand on my back. This had a calming influence on me. I then wondered if it was perhaps my astral body doing the vibrating and not the physical one. Bang! Suddenly, I was now airborne. I was now floating effortlessly just above where I had been sitting. I started to float gently down to the front of the hall. The people in the congregation could see me. They looked very pleased. I then floated to the very front of the hall where the clairvoyant lady was sitting on the stage. I reached out my hand to greet her. She reciprocated and reached up and shook my hand ever so elegantly. She was glowing, very beautiful with delicate perfect features. I then floated to a group of people just in front of the stage and reached out to touch their hands too. They could also see me and also reached up to shake my hand. Again, what struck me was how perfect and beautiful these people were.

I then floated near to the inner wall that adjoins with the living room within my old flat. I then easily passed through the wall as if it wasn’t there. The walls were very thin as they were made of plasterboard, I could see both rooms in detail. I then exited the church room and floated into my old living room. I noticed the T.V was still on. I saw a toy monkey on a small black chair. I noted these items so I could prove it once I was back (I crazy idea now as the scene was far from reality and I have no access to that flat anymore). I then floated through the walls into what used to be my brothers old bedroom and mentally noted down objects, so I could prove to current inhabitants when firmly back in my physical body (Again, it wouldn’t be possible). After a while I floated back to my sleeping body that I had left on the bench within the church room. It was hunched over to one side, almost about to fall on the floor. Once back in my body I ran to my old toilet to lock myself inside in order to get my bearings and try and make sense of this strange lucid dream/OBE experience. I then woke up for real with my daughter asking me to buy some life style points for her iPAD Sims computer game. I consciously downloaded the experience to my mind and quickly wrote this up.


This was a unique experience for me. Rather than the usual experience of being spring boarded into an OBE from this reality, I was leaving another dream/astral body and entering into another subtler body from another state completely. The people were so friendly and beautiful in every way that I got the impression this may have been a much higher state of consciousness/reality. Perhaps my dream character Duncan was used to chaperone me there, to an astral workshop, initiation process or something else.

Letting Go! – Dream to OBE Conversion

Last night I had another small OBE, this experience converted straight from a dream. I still have more experiences to write up going back to 9th of February 2016. I will be interjecting new experiences as I go.

It’s also been 15 days since two other experiences I had on the 26th of March, which I also need to write up at some point.

I was worried that was I trying too hard. I got to the point where I was making attempts every night and putting a lot of pressure on my sub-conscious to deliver. I decided to Let Go and make attempts a few times a week to see what would happen. I’m still writing down my dreams everyday and updating a database of any conditions that I can use to analyse with later, such as diet, meditation practices, life-style and well-being etc.

In terms of diet and life-style this experience definitely bucked the trend. I did meditate during the day for an hour before my mum turned up to come out with me for the day with my daughter. I did a visualization of a London bus. I used an additional technique to touch and feel the experience. I’m not great at visualization when fully conscious, the touch element really helped bring the meditation to life. Afterwards I did spinal breathing followed by a deep I’AM meditation.

After visiting our local town we had a small fish and chips in our local fish shop. In the evening I ended up having another Indian meal and a couple of drinks to spend time with Laura my wife. It was a welcome down time to a very busy working week at home against the backdrop of half term where juggling work and having the family around can be a real challenge, especially when one of the web servers I manage, decided to play up and cause me to work very late.

Surprisingly, against that backdrop, I just wanted to relax and Let Go on Saturday night.
I went to bed around 11pm. I had four OBE books by the side of my bed that I had found earlier that day in a cupboard I had cleared out earlier. I used to run a spiritual book library at a local spiritualist church many years ago and wondered if I had any OBE books archived up there. To my delight I had four books I could read at some point. They were now stacked on my bedside table.

Throughout the night I had many decent dreams. I set my intention on awakening to remember them for my journal. In one dream I was talking to one of my friends about OBEs when I suddenly said, “Am I dreaming!” This suddenly catapulted me straight out of the dreamscape into a tunnel. My subtle astral body was now in full motion flying through a void. I was now moving very fast, however, I couldn’t see very much. I said “Clarity Now!” I still couldn’t see much apart from vague shapes and colours. Due to my initial surprise of finding myself in the OBE state, I wasn’t prepared on a goal. I was worried that if I didn’t think of anything soon I would exit the experience and just wake up.

The only thing that popped into my mind was my last trip-out to Hadleigh castle. Without hesitation I said “Take me to Hadleigh Castle in 1360!” With that I was instantly transported to the castle in its full glory as it may have looked in 1360. Personally, I feel I hadn’t really maintained this experience properly. Although I had projected my consciousness out to view the castle as it was in 1360, I do feel what I saw was more a personally constructed projection of the castle with many overlays from my own thoughts. I had great fun flying around the castle taking in its magnificent size and it’s opposing presence high up on the hill.

Today the castle only has one main tower standing and two other corners that have lost much of what they resembled. Now I was seeing how these remaining structures fitted into the overall design as it may have looked. I really got the impression how popular this piece of heritage would be today if it were still intact.

After a while the experience started to become more a lucid dream. I was now inside a virtual reality CAD piece of software. I was controlling the scene very much like a computer model. I was changing the colours and textures of the castle to see what was most likely. I pixelated the textures, made them smooth, zoomed right out and back in again. I even changed the sky and surrounding scenery all with my mind. Looking across the Thames estuary you can normally see Kent. I had now unconsciously overlaid the modern city of London with its many tall buildings as a background against a red sky as the sun was setting.


I feel this experience started out as an OBE from a dream but after projecting to the castle the experience was more likely a Lucid Dreaming experience. It was very thought responsive, perhaps initially created by the great unconscious that already has a blue print of the castle etched into its memory. With the power of our minds we can construct anything we want with just thought alone. This is the complete opposite from a consensus reality experience where the structures are firmly stable and fixed by a collective of minds that inhabit these realms.

I was very appreciative if this experience as it confirmed to me that Letting Go, can be all that’s needed to succeed.
