I don't know if I'm astral projecting or lucid dreaming

Hi all,

New member been lurking and reading for a while after having many, what I believe to be, astral projections. The most recent last night - which is why I want to note it down whilst the memory is still fresh...

So, I fall asleep on my sofa with the television still on. I enter the usual hypnagogic state seeing the usual crazy stuff that makes zero sense then comes the strange paralysis. It's at this point where if I fight it I can usually wake up(with great difficulty may I add) or I can choose to ride it out as I did last night and many other nights but sticking with last nights experience...

So I leave my body, I don't see my body and I'm floating or flying so to speak I make my way to the kitchen where the exit door is at the moment everything in my house looks normal. I get to the door for some reason I get the feeling I could fly straight through it but choose to unlock it, which I do but I don't see my hand turning the key or pushing the handle - I exit the door.

The next part is why I can't decide is this is astral projection or lucid dreaming.

Now because I know what's happening (this happens all the time) and because it's not scary (sometimes it can be terrifying, demonic etc) I decide to stop and have a really good look at my surroundings.

Remember I said I'd fallen asleep on the sofa with the TV on...so I'm sort of floating looking down a deserted street - which isn't my street but in the distance I can see what looks like a giant TV screen that you may see at festivals, on stage etc. I can't make anything out on the screen as it's so distant but the colours look insane so different to normal but I don't look at it long because if I concentrate too much on looking I can feel my self going back to reality.

So I spend I couple of minutes on this street sort of playing in this dream world. The main thing I notice is the low gravity so I can front flips, back flips jump maybe 5 metres at a time. All this is happening from a 1st l person point of view me looking out of my eyes but not seeing my body (hands, feet etc)

Then after too much concentrating on looking around rather than going with the flow I find myself back in this reality laid on the sofa.

So what happened last night? Lucid dream or astral projection?

Thanks for taking the time to read.

Sounds like Astral projection, all from the words "so I left my body"

But what you say about the part later on does give it a dream-like state, which is basically how the Astrals work with the sort of random nature of location, the fuzzy rules on flying through doors versus treating them as solid.

The key indicator between Lucid dreams and Astral projections is that in APs you witness leaving your body, and in LD's you realize you're lucid within the reality you already projected to subconsciously. Both can be extremely vivid.

And in fact when you project and can't see your body then you phased far out enough from this reality that you no longer see your physical vessel, though you may still be able to see your room and the stuff within, which are probably slightly rearranged.
