An Out Of Body Experience?


It's been a while quite a few years I think... It happens when it wants to, there were some nights where it'd happen more than once, days at a time continuously, others where it'd happen say once a week or every few weeks.

I'm in bed. It happens either when I'm already awake and can't sleep, or when I wake up. It has happened once or twice before in other places e.g. In my parents' bed, in my brother's room, in the living room on the floor and/or sofa, matresses at other places, but mainly in my room.

My body starts to vibrate, it feels as though it's happening internally... The vibrations eventually dissolve, it feels as though I'm almost dissolving into my bed, or into whatever I'm on.

I'm not in my body anymore. I'm floating. Most of the time it's scary, and beyond my control. Sometimes it's as though I'm being controlled by something, or someone. Sometimes I'm floating and soaring at frighteningly fast speeds, and I just want to stop, but I can't.

When it's over, it's almost like I crash into my body again, and I get a shock. It's not any sort of a dream or a nightmare, it's real. I don't know what it is...

I've tried to research but I haven't yet come across many similar stories to this: (All that keeps coming up is the terminology Out of body experiences but because nothing has really been similar to my experiences, I'm starting to wonder if maybe it's something else? I don't know.

When I talk to my family about it, they merely suggest that I am possessed. They also say that if I speak to a professional person about it, I'll be put straight into a mental institute.

I don't know what to do, these experiences aren't pleasant to me, and they scare me. I suppose, in a way, I wanted to talk to someone with a similar experience to mine, and see what they think/ feel about it, and maybe how they deal with it (if they do)

This happened 8 years ago. My cousin passed away and I felt a pull that night, I literally went to the corner of the ceiling and can see my body and my wife next to me asleep, I felt like I was mumbling and trying to wake up, and immediately my wife turned around to try to get me to wake up, then I woke up and asked her, were you moving me, she said yes. I told her I could see you from the corner. It was scary for me,.

2 weeks ago. My Boss passed away at night time. Me not knowing yet the bad news, that morning around 5 am, I get up to the bathroom. And when I come back to bed, I turn facing my wife in bed. And begin to go to sleep, I then feel a pull from behind me, something dragging me out of my body. I got scared and begin to pray in bed. I know it was him coming to say good bye, because it was the same feeling as my cousin when he passed.

My boss was from Jerusalem. He believed that 2 angels walked with you day and night, good, and bad. And both would report to god, when you sleep they would take your soul to heaven, and when you wake up they would deliver your soul back to your body.

Its what's he called when you slept its like dying. And like the speed of light if they wake you, your spirit would come back. He was extremely knowledgeable. He studied a lot of bibles out there.

He also mentioned, our bodys are hosts. Like our spirits are the drivers operating a body made of water and meat. And we are here for a few years, almost like experimenting. Our lives are written in a book, god reads the book at the end. We die, our spirit then roams for the next day or 2. Then its like you go to sleep and when you wake up in heaven in the final day, you think ohh, a few hours just passed, was I sleeping. But he said thousands of years are left behind us and now is the day of judgment. He also mentioned when you are dead and buried, if you call your loved one, god sends the spirit to the body in the tomb and your loved one can hear you talking to it.

At his burial. The priest gave an interesting story.

We have 3 journies,

1. In the womb of our mother waiting to be born.
2. When we are born and get older living life
3. When we die and go to the next life.

To them is like, normal. So I don't think I will b afraid any more after all I learned from him.

My body will begin to vibrate but then I lose it. I find it difficult to clear my mind. I seem to thing about everything and anything. It is not something that has come naturally to me. I can see why astral projection seems scary, especially if you are not sure of what it is in the first place! When I find myself scared or fearful, often times it is because I do not understand. Let your spirit go!

I got a couple questions first when you had a out of body did you guess any like for example did you see a sign and wake up its still there or something like that? When some people die I read they do not see a light and lost awareness while others are conscious when they died?

I forgot to say if you change your thoughts and think positive as you go through your episodes I am sure it won't be as bad, its scary because of the things we have done in life movies we have watched and things people say we believe, just remember you never want anything bad for yourself so believe nothing bad can happen to you. What you believe you shall receive... I hope this helps somebody! 😁

I would like to say to all of you having these experiences you are not alone and I question my sanity all the time however I am a happy spirited loving person so I know I am sane, but my question to you guys would be what made your experience happen no one said how it started or why.
Me myself my experience started from meditation and man was it scary I made mine stop by making a drink, a green vegetable juice that I made myself, I can not remember what vegetables I used I am so mad about that anyway it was all green vegetables I juiced in a juicer and my episodes just stop, I was experiencing all kind of things from floating symbols to seeing vortexes to feeling spirits around me to leaving my body to no sleep to little sleep I thought I was loosing my mind I just kept telling family and who ever would listen, the more I talked the better I felt, I had a great support system and that is important. Now I'm on a journey to understand what all this means and why some people experience this and others don't. Anyway hope to hear how some of you started having this happen to you...

Reading your story and a few of the comments, I guess i'd like to share a few ideas. I'm 37 now and had one OBE when I was 18. It doesn't really sound like what your describing although I'm sure there may be different types. When I had my OBE it was of the usual things, I seen my body lieing there. AS my "spirit" was leaving I could feel the "spirit" of the house, see myself as a child in the house and the feeling I had at that time as well all at once. As I floated downstairs a friend who came over, while this happened, was at the front door at the bottom of the stairs and I could see what they were doing. Then floated into the livingroom and could see my friend peeking through the window, Looking in to see if neone was home. I could see this and feel things that happened over the 18 years I had been there. Felt I should describe my experience with an OBE before offering other ideas, so that you understand I am spiritual and do believe there are things we as humans just don't understand yet fully. It does sound more like a possession then an OBE based on my experience. But also have the idea of The movie "Phenomon" that travola movie back from the 90's. Maybe what your having is a health issue something like a seizure or brain tumor like in the movie. Just a couple of Thoughts and ideas. If you think it is possesion, buy some fresh whole sage, tie it in a bundle, lite it on fire, then put it out quick and let it smoke in each room in the house for a few seconds. Thats is suppose to drive away spirits if you believe the possession thing. Hope some of this gives you ideas and you figure it out. Good luck to you:)

the "OBE" has been happening to me for a few years now I am 23 and your stories sound so like mine especially when you say "When I talk to my family about it, they merely suggest that I am possessed. They also say that if I speak to a professional person about it, I'll be put straight into a mental institute." that's my familys out look on things but that's not a good enough explanation for me I need to know I did ignore it for months but the more I ignored it the more it happened and the longer it happens the worst one was about a week ago that's when I started researching it I was in my bed next to my partner like normal I went to sleep and I heard a scratching that woke me up but when I opened my eyes I wasn't in bed I was close to my ceiling I tried to scream but I could do nothing then I felt a tug on my legs the next thing I know I was been flung around the room it was terrifying it seemed to go on for ages but somehow I managed to force to throw myself down and I instantly woke up with a bang screaming it woke my partner up and when I told him about it he said it was just a bad dream and to go back to sleep needless to say I never went back to sleep it hasnt happened again yet but they seem to be getting more violent iv never truly believed in ghosts and spirits and possessions but somethings going on that I can't explain it doesn't help either that my 6year old niece has told the family she has seen things since a very early age but iv just put it down to a over active imagination but now I find myself questioning everything even my own sanity I have got 2 children to think about I don't want to end up the loony in the family any information anyone can pass onto me would be greatly appreciated

Excerpt from web page:

"15. Can self-initiated out-of-body experiences be dangerous? Many people say that it is not good to play on the astral plane, since one could easily be attacked by some ghost... And others say that during OBE we can be severed from our physical body and die?
My forty years of experience is evidence that OBEs are safe and natural. All of these fears are based upon ignorance. We are not physical beings. Many people are afraid of the unknown. We are also conditioned by our religions and culture to fear many unseen energies. Every night during sleep we all separate from our bodies; the fears are completely unfounded."

I'm shocked to be reading this, I thought I was the only one this was happening too. Your experience almost describes mine to a tee. I can feel myself slipping into the 'out of body experience' and can sometimes snap myself awake. My spirit is usually just thrown around the room and I can't control where it goes. I thought for a long time it might have just been nightmares but it's happened at least a dozen times.
