OBE/Sleep Paralysis/Lucid/Just a Dream? I have no idea!

I am certainly not a stranger to sleep paralysis and crazy vivid dreams. However, this particular one has me stumped! Can anyone give me any ideas what this could have been? I welcome all theories!

My husband was leaving for work and as I heard the front door shut I automatically started to feel the vibration starting that accompanies right before I go into a sleep paralysis episode. I have read that this could lead to a OBE, but for some reason I was not willing to accept that and I got scared. I was saying "no no no" in my head because I was not wanting this to happen, especially since my husband had just walked out the door.

I call out to him right away and then he comes in the room. He stood there against the bed and I told him I almost had a sleep paralysis and he held out his hand. I grabbed his hand and I automatically could tell that it wasn't his hand. (I saw him, and the shape was/looked like my husband, but it was apparently NOT my husband.) It was at this point that I could hear the car door slam outside our room. Then, I knew that my husband was outside getting in the car and this shadow was NOT my husband.

I told this thing "you are not my husband" and he said "it's me." I didn't even feel threated, but I still acted like I was being threatened. I grabbed his shirt and knew that it wasn't the shirt that my husband left wearing. (Why am I still trying to convince myself that this thing is not my husband?)

I get up and walk him over to the bathroom to look at him better. I punched him in the face and the back of his head hit the faucet. He said "ow, what was that for?" and I grabbed him by the shirt and escorted him to the front door. I noticed that the door was chained lock from the inside. I don't know why, but that seemed important to me. (Maybe it was obvious that my husband couldn't have locked the door with the chain and leave for work?)

I opened the door and said "by the way, I am calling the cops."

I "woke up" and noticed that I was still in bed, but I couldn't tell if my eyes were already opened or not. I felt like I just sort of came to with my eyes open, but I have no idea!

What do you guys think? This thing/shadow did not seem scary, but I still acted out like I was threatened.

Oh yeah, I NEVER did feel the actual paralysis that comes on when I get scared or realize what I am doing. That is why I am confused! I would say from my millions of experiences that I SHOULD have became paralyzed when I realized the shadow was not my husband and heard the car door outside confirming that my husband was leaving for work at the time. But it never happened this time.

Thank you for reading!

This sounds like a lucid dream you had. Its when the body is asleep and the mind is mostly awake. The sleep paralysis is the switch in the brain that keeps the body from acting out dreams. But lucid dreams are when the brain is conscious and aware of the time and where you are. Its confusing because it feels real in every way.
You said you punched him in the head. Did your hand hurt when you got up?

I don't recall. I think I was too scared to think about it! It even took me a day to write it down in my dream journal.

yeah it definitely sounds like a lucid dream. These OBE/Dream/spirit realities are a lighter density than our physical reality. When you go into those realities your consciousness creates what you are expecting to see immediately. To me it sounds like you knew you were about to have an OBE, you tried not to, you still did so your subconscious mind created what you conscious mind was expecting to see. You remained conscious in this lighter density reality and noticed that your husband was dressed different than what you were expecting, you got your two realities mixed up and beat up your spirit husband, or your husband from a parallel reality, or your less dense husband.

My advice is to never fear having an obe. I can almost have them at will and have never been hurt physically from them.

Thank you! I've read up on OBE and I keep trying to tell myself that I can do it. I guess I just haven't gotten over that fear. Hopefully some day!
