I astral projected for the first time a few minutes ago (I think?), and I'm quite scared something bad has happened.
Once I was about 10 minutes into meditation, I visualised myself outside my body on mars, and I saw my silver chord stretch all that distance - I didn't feel exactly like I was there or see as if i was standing on mars, as i still felt present where i was meditating, but i felt like i projected a version of me there, an awareness -
Then i decided i'd stop, in case it was dangerous to continue before i knew what i was doing - i tried willing my body back, or clearing my mind, but that didn't work. What worked after was pulling the chord, and the body back to me.
Problem is it was coming back down from space and into my house, towards my body way too fast and I got scared. As a knee jerk, i severed the chord. The astral(?) body recoiled (kind of like a body would do if it got hit by an asteroid in the chest in space?)
I guess the fear was partially based on a feeling that this body wasn't really me, and that it was about to enter MY body and possess me
Long story short, i opened my eyes and i feel a bit empty and off as i write this. Is this all in my head, did I imagine what i expected an astral projection to be like? or did i really sever my chord, and now have no astral body? Could an entity have possessed me, and replaced my original astral body? Am I just being paranoid and over-imaginative?
