I dreamed that I went to sleep in a fictional version of my bedroom, and I sensed a presence in the room, maybe during sleep paralysis inside this dream within a dream.
The presence seemed negative and / or it felt scary, like during most sleep paralysis experiences, and perhaps I could somewhat feel my body waking up in the real world.
I am not sure if I saw the presence et cetera, but I did wake up in the real world shortly after.
In this dream, I was working on a computer for someone, and I was scanning it for malware with the free portable on-demand second opinion anti-malware scanner Norton Power Eraser (NPE).
Norton Power Eraser had a new feature where it could warn you if your email address was in any known hacks and / or it could warn you about a certain kind of threat that I can not remember.
I had my email address set up in Norton Power Eraser, so I wondered what would happen if that feature was triggered one day when the person who the computer was for was using it.
That is all that I can remember of this dream.
This dream was possibly several dreams, I can not remember which, so I will type them as one dream.
In this dream, I went with my parents to visit an extended family with dark-color skin at a house, we were possibly related to this family.
At the house, we met various members of this extended family, who were different ages, and some were: cousins, aunts, grandparents, et cetera.
Among them were some girls would I learned could astral project and maybe remote view, and they showed me how to astral project.
They probably did not call it astral projection, they had their own word for it, like the word shine / shining in the movie The Shining, maybe they even called it shine / shining.
They probably felt that I could astral project too because we were possibly related, and maybe this ability was something that passed through some of our family members.
Likewise, they were correct, and I was able to astral project, and it was a unique experience.
Unfortunately, I can not remember the exact astral projection technique they taught me, but it possibly went something like:
I remember being in a bedroom, they told me to sit down, close my eyes, and relax.
Focus inward and outward to where I want to go.
Hold on to the feeling / connection with your body, and keep that feeling / connection planted in place.
Let part of yourself separate in the direction that you want to go, and put most of your focus on the part of yourself that separated, while keeping the connection with your body planted in place.
It was a unique feeling when part of myself separated from my body, I could still feel where my body was.
The part that separated possibly did not need to breathe, et cetera, and probably felt like how you imagine a spirit / ghost / hologram would feel.
I turned, I could see my body, it felt weird, and I was afraid that my body would not breathe on its own.
They encouraged me that it would be okay, I slowed walked across another room, making sure to hold on to the connection with my body.
I kept turning back to see if my body was okay and to make sure that nothing was trying to possess my body, and I asked one of the girls to guard my body & warn me if something goes wrong.
I walked through the family room or living room, where a grandmother was sitting, and I walked into another room.
Then I returned to my body, I can not remember how I reentered my body, it possibly just happened smoothly & naturally, but I can not remember.
I just remember being excited and amazed by the experience, and how easy it was for me to learn to astral project; and I thanked the girls, and I could not wait to try astral projecting again.
The girls told me that it gets easier the more that you practice / try it.
I then went to talk with the grandmother and some other family members, and then I washed the dishes.
Then my family and I left to another house for a family gathering for my mom’s side of the family, or members of my mom’s side of the family showed up at this house.
I talked with some of them, like my male cousins ME and EE.
They mentioned video games, probably some American football & basketball & fighting video games, and we either played some video games or they wanted me to come over tomorrow to play some.
At some point, I went to work at a fictional version of The BP Library that was inside a multi-story multipurpose building that also had an elementary school.
I talked with various coworkers of mine like Ms. MB, my supervisor Ms. JR, my female coworker KE, several other coworkers, and some teachers who worked in the elementary school.
My work desk was rotten from termites and / or old age, and a female teacher with light-color skin and blonde hair helped me take it away; and she let me have a desk from her classroom.
So after taking away my rotten desk, the teacher took me to the elementary school parts of the building, and we went to her classroom; and she helped me bring a desk back to the library.
Later in the dream, I tried to find the teacher so that I could thank her again; and to ask her what could I help her with and / or give her in return for letting me have one of her desks.
Unfortunately, I probably woke up before I could find her, or I woke up shortly after finding her; but I can not remember.
