Dad about the programme he was watching, then as usual I went straight up to my mates room. He was sat on his bed watching his portable TV. I didn’t know how to start so i just came out with it. “You know that astral thing we have been trying to do for ages? well I am doing it now”, he laughed and said” course you are”. I tried to convince him but he wasn’t having any of it, then all of a sudden I started to feel panicky said I had to go, he said “ you have only just got here, what’s the matter, you alright mate, you look a bit out of it”. I didn’t answer but began to make my way back downstairs, as I walked out through the door everything seemed to go onto fast forward again, I could see the way back but it was passing by at such speed it was all a bit of a blur, this time not stopping and starting but getting faster and faster. I felt myself falling and falling then with a bump I fell back into myself and found myself lying on the bed a bit disorientated and feeling a little sick. I couldn’t wait to let my mate know that I thought it had worked for the first time and ran down stairs to use the phone, no mobiles in those days.
I dialled his number; his Mum answered and called him down to the phone. I heard him as he clomped downstairs “How did you get home so quick?” he said. Now I was really confused. I asked him what he meant and he said that I had just been there. I told him I hadn’t left my house but had been trying the astral thing again and that it had worked. He didn’t believe me! I can’t say I blame him.
I jumped on my motorbike and made my way to his house, a ten minute journey. When I got there he had heard my bike and came down, meeting me at the door. I then excitedly told him what I had experienced, about speaking to his Mum and Dad and then speaking to him upstairs. He swore that I had physically been there and took me into the living room to confirm with his parents. His Mum and Dad, despite looking very confused at being asked the question, confirmed that I had been there and that we had all spoken. I asked about the programme that his Dad had been watching and he told me that it had just finished.
I was absolutely blown away; my first proper Astral travel and someone had physically seen me. I have travelled many times since then but I have never been seen by anyone, although they are surprised when you can describe events that you weren’t at.
