Astral Projection Progression

It's been a few weeks since I have actively began to consciously astral project. I haven't kept exact track of the time frame - but I've been reading books and looking at youtube vids about the subject. So far I've read:

Leaving the Body: D. Scott Rogo
The Astral Projection Guidebook: Erin Pavlina
Adventures in the Afterlife: William Buhlman
Projection of the Astral Body: Sylvan Muldoon
How to Have an OBE - William Buhlman

I believe all these books have helped me in my practice. I feel like I actually had my biggest breakthrough yet in my effort to project last night. I felt the vibrational state - and I actually felt like I was flying at points. I even feel like I may have experienced sleep paralysis if only for a few moments. But - I had no sight. I don't think I left my body at all and then I just lost consciousness and fell asleep. I'm encouraged but just wanted to ask the community what else I can do to aid my process.

The astral projection literature suggests the following requirements, whatever techniques we use:

Complete physical relaxation.
A quiet mind, free from all the mental chatter.
A prolonged state of concentration.
A strong desire to leave the body, as this desire fuels our intent.

Peace.

I had my first OBE when I finished reading Buhlman's "Adventures in the Afterlife".

What to do? Persevere: read and try!

All the recipes for OBEs are their authors' subjective descriptions of what they've been doing. All methods are variants of self-hypnosis that don't have a high degree of success and repeatability because their practitioners don't understand what they're doing. You have to get in the right altered state of consciousness: nothing more, nothing less. You have to move your attention away from your body, while maintaining awareness.

LapisLazuli3, don't worry about not being able to see. I've had OBEs when I couldn't see sometimes also....or could see and hear but couldn't speak! Or could whistle a tune but couldn't move far from my body! Etc ....etc....

It doesn't matter. What happens one time isn't always what's going to happen another time.

Don't even worry about not seeing. Next time, you will be able to, and so on.

Oh and another odd thing....nothing's set in stone from what you read either.
For instance, I had one night, been reading in a book (forgotten which) -where it said that when you stare at your hands and focus on them, the fingers will most likely start to elongate, or your hands might disappear!
So -out of body I did exactly that, and stared, fully expecting one or the other to happen.
And it didn't! So there is something about it which doesn't always follow personal expectations either. Instead my hands radiated with lovely lights which took me by surprise (and yep....distracted me from why I wanted to go out in the first place...)

I also tried with William Buhlman "commands" such as "Clarity Now!" etc, and fully expected them to work, but for me, they didn't, which actually just made me laugh.
