Since I learned about AP, I keep hearing ''intent will get you there'', or ''intent is the most important thing''. I didn't really get it, I just assumed there was a very technical way of separating, but now I believe that the process of physical separation we go through is just a way of us perceiving the shift in our conciousness. The dream body is just a visual representation, us translating what we don't know in to something we are more familiar with, and experiencing it that way. Anyways, I think I finally get it. I was having a nap when I got back home from a long boring day of classes and got relaxed cleared my mind, thinking hopefully i'll AP but i know i won't... The problem I have is i usually just relax my body, somewhat lose feeling of it and it goes numb, relax my mind, and that's about it. I had this sudden instinct or thought (not mental chit chatter) that reminded me of you guys and how you say intent will get you there. So I focused all my attention with everything I could give it and at this point my body was numb and i was a little tingly. Once I focused on getting out there (where? idk, but out of my body, i couldnt really see anything) and just immediately after I start feeling vibrations in my head. They weren't painful, they were kind of enjoyable, I felt happy. And I think i might have felt lighter. I can't really explain it but it's like I was experiencing something I'm not used to in this world. I had briefly started to ''interect'' or ''communicate'' on some other plane (correct me if I'm using any wrong terms) At least that's how I felt. Anyways, after that I got way too eager, and tried getting up but it was my real body, I should have given more time to start sensing an astral body. Still, I think it's progress and i hope i can keep going forward but i feel like something is holding me back.
