Lucid Dreaming And Out Of Body Experience?


First off, when I had these experiences I had no idea what lucid dreaming or an out of body experience was. It all started this year, I had started to have dreams where I knew I was dreaming. I was actually conscious of the fact that I was dreaming. I thought I would wake up after finding out that I was dreaming but I didn't. I have had many of these dreams during the course of this year. I thought it was probably a normal occurrence and so I didn't think too much about it.

However, this past thursday, when I was sleeping I woke up inside my mind. I knew I was awake but I could not move at all. I started to panic. I tried to move and to say something but I couldn't. And I swear, I felt like I was being lifted from my body. I remember that I had my eyes wide open and I thought I could physically see myself. I also heard voices but no one had been in my room when I fell asleep. It was frightening for me and so I closed my eyes and said a prayer to God.

Afterwards, I felt like I was shaking and felt chills or goosebumps all over. That was when I suddenly got up and "woke" up. But I noticed that I had fallen asleep on top of my textbook (I was studying for a test) and so I thought, "How could it be possible that I had my eyes open and could see when my head was down in a book?"

I'm only 16 years old so I have no knowledge on this type of thing. So I did do some research on the internet but it didn't really help. Was it really an Out of Body Experience or something else? Is it normal? Explanations needed please?

Is out of body experience real or hallucination for example did you talk to someone when you had an out of body and woke up and it was true?

yes I have had this happen to me to but. I could see a figure in the mirror on the big unit we had in the room this moved its arms as iff to say come. All dressed in white long dark hair it was christ. I could also see my self the same shape as I am but orange very bright. I turned and I could see my gfrnd next to me I looked back at the mirror and he was still calling and it kept getting bigger then I panicked at that point I whent back inside myself but with a bang and a flash of bright light. Then I knew that I was awake but could not move or spk. After I opened my eyes I could here little voices in the corner of my door. But I have seen a face also when I was very young the same 1.i was awake at this time in my bedroom. And it appeared in my window he smiled at me and then went. I think I was about 9.but I could still feal him there for a little while. I still would like an answer to that 1 day. Its somthing that will never leave me

[at] graff the exact same thing happened to me when I was in the 2nd grade. My mom and dad divorced, my dad moved away... All I knew was he went to new york... I was so sad and begged and pleaded to know where he was at (through prayer). One day I went to sleep and a nice loving presence took me to where he lived and even spoke to me. I live in california and somehow ened up in new york with this presence... I remember the presence showing me my dad's house as we stood outside of it... For some reason the presence wouldn't let me go inside. It didn't give me a real reason, but I asked at least twice and was told I couldn't in a nice way... I took it for what it was and told myself I have to remember this moment and looked for proof of my visit so I looked up and I was standing near a street sign... I made a mental note of the street sign and I was taken back home. When I woke up I felt so much better about seeing my dad or at least knowing where he was. I kept every detail about that experience locked in my mind. Bare in mind I have never been to new york before. In the 7th grade my brother bought me a plane ticket too see me my dad. I had remembered my experience this entire time and never told anyone about it, becuase I could not prove what I saw to be true, it was just a really good feeling to this point... I was in a state of amazement to see that my dad lived on the same hill, on the same street I saw in my experience...omg. Then I knew for sure I had way more that a dream... I had an what I know now to be an out of body experience... What drew me to write this (cause I never have in the past) is that you say something took you around the city and that is the first time I heard anyone say that... Its so close to what happened to me.

I had an experience when I was 15-16.I was taken out of my body while sleeping and held by some one who did not reveal themselves? And taken for a trip around the area of where I lived. It was so real the cool air, the perfect vision and all feelings. I wanted to go on but was told I must go back. I will never forget how hard I hit my bed when I re-entered my body. I didn't tell anybody of my experience and it took 25 years to work out my calling. Belive me this was no dream. I did not have a religious upbringing and did not want to believe in this god thing. I was having a good life and thought that was only for the meek and mild who needs that, was I wrong. After other mind blowing experiences such as parachute entanglement (bad one) and the un-tanglement of which I now now that there is a GOD.

Ive had these experiences as well, I'm 22 years old and I have had these experiences since I have been 5-6 years old... One experience of mine was during surgery I was going through, but anyway they sedated me, and gassed me, I started feeling heavy, then like I balcked out then like the next thing I know I'm like at a distance away from my body seeing everything the doctors are doing to me then like things became unclear and I then woke up!

Ive had experiences during sleep as well, like seeing myself float out of body, its cool!

yes, I have had o.b.e's (astral projections) before. One experience of mine was around christmas last year, was at my moms, the party was over so it was late and I decided to go to bed, so I laid down, just thought to myself, then by the time I know it I saw myself floating out of my body with the sensation of vibrations, very strong by the way, and saw myself laying down (remote veiwing), like I was awake, just not in my body, saw everything as it was just that things seemed distorted, different, then like right when I felt myself awake, "BOOM" heard like a bang and I got up to a jolt!

I too have had OTB's. When out, it's not necessary to see from where your eyes are. Sometimes as you are leaving the body, the body becomes catatonic. There are vibrations, and a lift off. Actually, in sleep, you rise to sleep and fall awake.

It was very smart of you to say a prayer to God. When you say God do you mean Jesus or just God. Either way it was a good step, but if your experience was coming from the negative side then The Name of Jesus is Super Powerful. I have never had an out of the body experience. Many have and I am sure others will write you soon about it. I have loads of spiritual experiences and when they are linked to a strong faith in Jesus Christ, then they are all very positive and without fear. Just remember the other side is equally real. Hope that was a help. Have a good day and write back if you want to. I have written a great deal on this site and maybe some of my blogs could be of a help.
