Oh god someone please help me I'm scared. I've been experimenting with meditation and astral projection, and the other day when I was trying it I got a really weird feeling in my stomach area and everything went spinny and weird for like 20 seconds.

Now whenever I try to go to sleep I get this metal taste in my mouth and I get really hot and its like my body goes into a light sleep right away but I am still fully conscious. I wasn't sure if I slept or was sleeping or not. Its like watching myself sleep my mind won't turn off.

I can't seem to sleep normally anymore I'm scared I broke myself and I'll slowly die a painful death because I'm not getting deep enough sleep.

Help!!!!

  • What you are describing seems out of the realm of this forum, which is medical illness. About your symptom of metal taste in your mouth, and becoming hot when you are trying to sleep--this could be anxiety, or a thyroid problem.But...it sounds like what happened to you involves an energy phenomena, which occurred when you were in a phase of astral projection. As if an external energy source "attached" to you. Now, when you try to sleep and your governing consciousness stops its vigilance, you are again open to the external energy source, which apparently doesn't want you to sleep. I am not an expert in energy problems, but please find someone who is familiar with astral projection so he/she can help you. If you have other questions, I may be able to help you. You may write to me at marionstar@aol.com. Put "astral projection" in the subject line. Marionstar

Hi simplistics, This is not a normal result of meditation or attempting astral projection. Do you have any other symptoms? The metallic taste in your mouth is very odd too and the hot feeling, as those don't come from meditation either. This sounds more like a prolonged hypnogogic state perhaps caused by something. Did you have night terrors as a child and other sleep disturbances? Depending upon symptoms perhaps a trip to a neurologist could be helpful.
