I believe it's our minds projecting fears and making them 'real', when we are in that state it's easy for a lot of negative emotions and traumas to bubble up, maybe as a means of protection against the unknown.
When I feel that I'm starting to 'float' away I try to convince myself there's nothing to be afraid of.
For some reason I still can't make it past that stage.
The fear is still too great.

wow i got some pretty awesome answers here guys ive had some experiences with i dunno if it was out oobe or astrial projection one time i think i posted it here before i woke up kinda in that old hags state.. where you seemed to be paralized but i was laying there and i seen this bed rail and it felt like my hand was touching it though my hand was on the bed it was like my hand was invisible and when i touched the rail i could feel it being cold.. when i finally came to and woke up and touched the rail it was cold.. this happened when i was younger.. so whats the difference in oob and atrial projection..
astrial projection kinda has me wierded cause i wouldnt want to see spirits and stuff and if i looked back and seen myself i dunno if id find it cool or freak the hell out.. it would be pretty scarey looking back to see yourself and thinking.. did i just die? haha
i also can do lucid dreaming from time to time... which is pretty cool i dunno if im tuned in to certain things.. as i can also dream of things that will happen sometimes but its never how my dream is but its close.. i figured the the man laughing and tickling me was some kinda old hags and i was half asleep and couldnt see cause i was inbetween sleep and awake.. the rushing of the wind that was a trip i wont lie it did freak me out.. if it something i could do safely i wouldnt mind it but i hear bad things about oob and astrial projection.. but i do find it interesting and am tempted

It just seemed like the space was larger and brighter than it really is. Of course I had trouble controlling what I was doing and seeing.
