Sleep Walking And Out Of Body Experience


I am 56 years old, a female, Mother of two children... When I was a child, the middle child, I was different, saw the world a different way, this did not make it easy for me, stigma of "crazy" "weird" ahead of her time comes to mind. I was a nervous child and as I recall, my parents were always taking me to a doctor to look for a medical cause for the way I was. They have been dead for 25 years now, so I cannot ask questions, the kind of questions one never thinks to ask when they are young.

In my 30's I discovered I was a sleepwalker, not because I remembered but because my Daughter witnessed this. One time I was asleep on the sofa and a phone call came in for me, my daughter who was ironing woke me up to tell me... I got up picked up the very hot iron and held it against my face as one would hold a phone in the day and started talking gibberish as my daughter later told me.

The iron had burned my face and the imprint could clearly be seen on my face. I did not wake up, although I looked awake to my daughter. She led me back to the sofa where I petted her head as if she were a pet and told her she was a good dog. The next morning when I really did wake up, I was horrified to see the imprint burned into my face and my poor daughter telling me how I was speaking in some crazy language. I called my doctor, who in turn called another doctor... And to get to the point no one seems to know much about sleepwalking. I had no scar from that burn and believe me there were other times, walking over shards of glass barefoot, not a cut on my body! The last doctor wanted me to enter a program at Colombia University in New York City for past life regression... I declined.

I believe my sleep walking seemed to surface in times of extreme stress. Doctors just want to medicate you.

Last night I fell asleep on the sofa, my husband was upstairs in our bed room. I had a dream? I was floating above my body. The fear that I would fall was the first thing I remember feeling, and then just the sensation of floating, looking down at my body on the sofa, I believe I was floating around my home and then through the ceiling to the second floor... All at once thinking am I dying, I don't want to go yet! When I reached the second floor I remember saying, "what is that smell?" I woke up and have been freaked out ever since.

Was I dying and given a second chance? My girlfriend told me it was astral projection... But why, I never even heard of such a thing, what does it mean... Do you know?

Because I read some out of bodies that were hallucinations like for example one person saw table and a letter but there was no letter or desk.

darkassassin, you are supposed to see that. Whatever is in the location of your physical body (e.g. If you're at school, a desk, locker, etc.) will be what you see when you first start your OBE, until you learn how to move. 😉 😁

i remember sleep walking as a child and it felt as if I wasn't in control of my body. I remember feeling a tremendous amount of fear. I could see speak hear & move my body but not able to make myself do or say what I wanted, it was as if there was someone or something controlling me. Is this classed as sleep walking or is it something completely different

I have been sleepwaling and talking for a year and a half. I started after my son was born. I had a conversation for two hours the first time I sleep walked to my boyfriend I said I was packing my things and said mean things. I smoked a ciggarette in the garage I have punched my boyfriend in his sleep. I have done DR. Just laughed when I told him I hit my boyfriend. The sleep DR. Told me to lock me in the bedroom. SO STUPID. How do you get answers. Last night I felt something entered my body like a dream and felt I was having a sezure when I faught It then I awoke. I have two kids and my boyfriend I have been with for two years doesn't even sleep with me in the room our relationship is distant because of this and I don't know where to turn for help. Everytime it happens I yell, curse and say mean things with my eyes open and never once do I remember anything.

I do not recall any vibrations during my floating experience, at first I was frightened because I knew I should not be floating,scared.If you read my follow up, I later recieved a call from my sister Mary Ann, who I had not heard from in 18 years and when I called her back, she told me she has pancreatic cancer... She is fighting hard but very ill. I have not experienced this again... I am so thankful for the reconciliation and pray, pray pray for her as I will ask you to do on behalf of my sister. Please keep sharing as I do recieve comfort and knowledge is power.
Much Love,

Hi friends,

I will explain you the reason for night walkers and body floatings. First the body floating through strong vibration is related to spiritual as I am in spiritual I assure you that its possible to seperate the soul and body. Consulting a better spiritual person will help as not everyone will get this speicialities. Its a gift so make use of it with a proper spiritual master as self involving may lead to death also.

Coming to night walkers. I also suffered during my child hood days. Sub conscious mind has so power to visible also without the eyes opened. Night walks are caused due to evils, spirituals or may be the body condition itself. You first need to consult any best yoga or spiritual master to completely ride of this night walkings. Any queries can send to systemadmin.deep [at]

I have been a sleep walker since I can remember. It can be so confusing. I usually wake up around 3 am on full moons staring at the moon and wonder what I am doing at the window. I have made paths to the front door out of clothes, this happened a lot when I was a child. I dated a sleep walker once and it can be very dangerous to wake them up. I just let him do his sleepwalking thing. My docs are so confused by me they don't even know how I am still alive. I think we are just gifted.

and I also wanted to mention that during these experience at some point I always feel strong vibrations, very strong, like being shocked or something, very strange sensations and pulsations!

I believe this, because I have been a sleepwalker since I was a child. Doctors of all kinds, do not know the how and why. The scarey thing is that you do not feel pain while in this state. I revert back to a childlike version of myself. This has been told to me by my wife and others who have witnessed me in this trance like state. I was still able to converse with people, still knew the football stats. I understand. I really know nothing either. Hang In!

When in a sleepwalk, you have no memory of what is done while in this state and I was told never to wake a person up because it is dangerous (I don't know why, they the DR's really do not seem to know either.) People who have never experienced this can not possably understand, because all that I have been told is that you have to reach a deep level of sleep and then things that you have not dealt with (subconcious) surface. I have read many case histories on this subject and one is in a different level of conciousness and does not feel pain,RE: walking over glass and not a cut on her feet, it is quite possable, but because anything unexplained and different causes people to fear that situation and person. Remember we do not know how to use our brains to the capacity they were intended, somehow we are sidetracked. I believe every word and hope you get an answer, maybe not in this forum but I believe you will before your earthly life has ended.

Well to answer you Lucille, I wish I was lying, only because no one seems to be able to give me answers. I was going through a stressful time then and was in therapy then to get me thru. When I woke up in the morning, the burn was indeed there, I called the therapist, who was witness to the burn and yes it was treated, with a salve. I seemed to have MANY THERAPIST'S baffled which is why they then refered me to Columbia University for past life regression, which I declined. I tried to get answers and even with the sleepwalking they do not know much. You have no memory of a sleepwalk and unlike Ralph Norton on the honeymooners, when he sleepwalked with his arms straight out in front of him, this is not the case here... You look like you look awake. My daughter was not that old maybe 12 at the time and there was a lot of stress in the household. It is true and the only thing I have concluded is my body was in an altered state, like the people who walk over hot coal barefoot. The same when I woke up in my childs bed and because my mornings were hectic, I ran around and drove my children to 2 different private schools, when I returned home and walked into my bedroom, there was shards of glass everywhere, broken porcelain... Seems I had picked up a very heavy curio cabinet, that contained multiple pieces of porcelain statues and thrown it and in order for me to have reached the door I had to have walked over the glass and broken porcelain, not a mark, not a cut on my feet... I am happily married and a grandma of one, my daughter has an Ivy Leauge Education, My son is an artist and an actor Look they have tried to diagnose me into many different places, multiple personality and on and on, have really seen a lot of the finest Dr.'s. I just do not fall into any of them completly, there is no conclusion. I do know that I have seen faith work as my Grandma Mary showed me as a child, and have witnessed a miracle when my Grandma came through an aneurysm and really saw her faith work for her. I am deeply spiritual and do not need attention by making this up, what I need is input to understand and what would you do if there were things that happened to you in life that no one could explain? Of course people even clergy cannot explain the why of the situation, I have let go and let God... What else can I do. It just takes me back to how I was treated as a child...wierd, different. I came on here because I get scared and my dear friend explained to me about astral projection, I had never heard of it before... It is what it is.

Hi Linda: Your story is unusual. I've heard of several stories like yours when people are put into a deep hypnosis. The experiences that you mention can happen when you are able to put yourself in that mode. My first OBE was similar. I saw my body in bed and said to myself "here I am on the ceiling, my body is in bed. I must have died. But I'm not ready to die yet." Then dove back into my body. Now the adventure of a lifetime is available... If you want it.

Sorry but I don't believe your story and anyone who does is very naive. If you had really held a burning hot iron to your face not only would you have woken up in absolute pain but you would have 3rd degree burns and would need to be hospitalised immediately. Your daughter would have also acted very strangely to not take you straight to hospital and of course you would be scarred for life. Why people need to make up these ridiculous stories is beyond me!

When my parents died the 3 girls, I the middle one fell apart, my older sister who is a personal trainer became obsessive with animals, way over the top, my younger sister well. She just took all she could get,money,all things material. I posted my experience on the floating above my body on the 5th of May I believe and then the night before Mothers day I woke up at 3:00 in the morning (the 3:00 waking has been happening for a long time, not always but enough to make me aware of the time being the same) I went to my answering machine and my sister Mary Ann the oldest of the three had left a message to please call her. I was so happy to hear a voice that sounded like mine... It had been 18 years. I called her back at 3:15 in the morning and talked to her machine asking if all was alright and telling her how happy It had made me to hear her voice. I had reached out to her a few times over the years by phone telling her I loved her and finding a photo of the two of us together with Santa, I remember writting a note in which I told her I loved her and that she was always welcomed here. That had to be 8 years ago, she never responded. Mothers Day when we came home and saw the phone was off the hook,bummer,I so wanted her to call. She did call to tell me she had been diagnosed with pancreatic Cancer in January, she sounded weak and I don't know if I am correct but it seems she is putting her affairs in order. She told me she had not spoken to my younger sister in close to 20 years and that she had called her also (not mentioning the cancer) asking the same as she asked me to call her, she never did. This may have something to do with my astral projection? What do you think? Was that my sister leaving or close to death,? When I lost my parents, this never happened to me... Comments please.
