I loved the part of sleep paralysis! I also know it as the “witch riding your back”. Luckily, I only experienced a couple times and that was it…
It’s funny that you guys mentioned Robert Monroe because today I just found this:
For those curious, it’s about the Gatewey Project (CIA docs here) and the Monroe Institute:
A reporter for The Hook, weekly newspaper for Charlottesville, Virginia, who visited The Monroe Institute said, “…with a few exceptions, the only ‘normal’ people with whom I could fully identify were the trainers, who seemed remarkably well-grounded for people whose day-to-day experiences include astral projection and disembodied spirits”
Congratulations on your first astral travel podcast! It’s awesome that you’re trying to build a community of astral travelers and it’s really interesting that this happens to you spontaneously and on a regular basis.
I also enjoyed what you mentioned about grounding crystals and techniques. Please feel free to write a topic with any tips that you feel are important to share!
