OBE and me
I started having sleep paralysis problems at the age of 14 (10 years from now). Usually I would feel an intense vibrating sensation and hear loud buzzing sounds. And then I would feel a force pushing me down anywhere from my head to my chest. I seriously thought I was being haunted by demons or ghosts (two incidents are incredibly creepy). I would then be scared as hell (panic attack) and struggle to move my finger because I could break free once my finger moves. And then one time I just gave up fighting it as it takes one hell of an effort to break free and woah la! I didn't die. Yes, it gave me a feeling of death (actually I was quite right to feel that way). It is also during that time that I started to be able to control my dreams occasionally (lucid dreaming). Most of the time, I fly around town in my lucid dreams.
A few years later, I figured that I could sit up after a while of experiencing the vibrating sensation. That is, to get out of my body (the so called "out-of-body experience" as I later discovered). I could not see at all during those early experiences. The only sense I had was touch. I would usually tried to discover something that I'd never notice before to confirm the experience. However, it never worked; either I had it wrong or my memories faded. Sometimes I would try to make noise during OBE's (knocking on the wall and stuff) to see if others noticed. That, too, never worked. Sometimes I couldn't even control my body at all (would just be flowing above my bed). Last year, I started flying upwards during OBE's. I did the flying upwards thing four times, and in two of those times I could feel an enormous amount of energy in my head as I flew up. The further I went, the more intense the sensation became up to the point where I felt like exploding into pieces. Without a better way to describe it, I would say it felt quite good.
A few months earlier, I read Adventures Beyond the Body that teaches you how to experience OBEs or astral projection or whatever the hell you call it. It seemed like I was reading about my own experience in the first few chapters. But the author dove deeper into the matter than I'd ever imagined possible, clarifying so many questions that I had with OBEs. The author introduces many techniques to induce more OBEs but since they are all too time-consuming for me, I never tried them out. The biggest thing I got from this book is the ability to improve my visual perception during OBEs. As my energy body is incredibly thought sensitive, I can actually command my energy body to see and all kinds of crazy stuff. Finally, I can see (somewhat) during my OBEs.
What led me to write all of this is the amazing OBE I had last night. Sharing next post.
