Will do, and I am glad you signed up to ATS welcome to your new addiction, also don't worry about the extreme hostility in the political threads most of the core members love eachother however this election season is bringing out the worst. Threads like these matter and if you have other experiences don't be afraid to post them.

Out of body is wonderful. When I was younger I had them often, but not so much now.
It's sort of drifting up above your body and floating thru the roof, then just swimming thru the air.
I had a cord that attached me to my body, it stretched as far as I wanted, going back was disappointing.
If you get to do this, good dreams.

This is my opinion based on personal experience. I have no proof of anything in this regard, so take it for what it is worth (you may feel my advice is worthless, that's OK too).
Don't fear these things, just allow it to happen. If an "evil presence" is inducing these things, fear is what they are after, they feed on the fear energy and that just makes them stronger and come back for more. Otherwise it is natural from the OOBE standpoint. Leave the body, it is a thrilling, liberating experience that you will learn to control after awhile. Rolling out of bed seems to work pretty well for me. Don't open your astral eyes until you are away from your body as this might force you back in. Have some fun walking through the walls or floating around the room. Think of someplace to go or someone to visit, you'll end up there as you travel.
My advice is to turn your fear into fascination, that will change the whole scenario around. When falling in your dreams, study how it feels and you'll never hit any bottom, it just cycles through over and over again. When being "attacked" by "evil", become curious not fearful, become fascinated and the presence will get frustrated and leave you alone.
Remember, you are just sleeping (more or less), and unless someone is really sitting on your chest or holding you down, there is nothing physical trying to hurt you, only to induce fear to feed off of it. Unless you have such a fright that it gives you a deadly heart attack, they have no real power over you, just the ability to cause a fear induced panic. Basically it's all in your head, observe it, notice the details, be curious, but do not fear it, the "evil" ones are basically parasitic cowards looking to score a meal from your fear of them.
There are other ways to deal with this sort of thing like asking what their real name is or getting help from other entities that may be near by watching. Having a firm faith in a deity helps too, belief is quite a powerful tool for this. Not every "demon" sitting on your chest is out to get you either, sometimes they have a message for you or just want to "play" with you. When you get the upper hand they will often return to their real form that is not as scary as how they appear to you to induce fear.
