TEOTWAWKIAIFF, I'm sure this a while ago but you say when you 'woke up", could you also say that you just opened your eyes and that you weren't in
I ask because when I've had OOBEs they have sometimes been when I'm laying in a non-familiar setting or at a non-familiar time (or both), and every
single time - including all in my own familiar bed, after the experience I just open my eyes without any sense of waking. I can analyse the
experiences as I'm having them and also there's no disruption in my thoughts or physical state from 'floating' to opening my eyes. I've not seen any
beings but have often been STRONGLY aware of a presence as if just out of sight, thankfully.
Also the feelings are always in some sense 'more real than real' which I think is our way of expressing it's waking 'normalness', if that makes sense,
to accentuate that it's not a dream.
The same sleep paralasis takes over as I'd imagine an abduction would, with super-heightened awareness yet no bodily control- only mind.
Almost as a joke test to myself I've recently tried sticking an arm or hand right out of bed into the centre of the room, just because it's not
something I usually do being in the freezing UK, waiting for an OOBE to see what happens. On both occasions something happened its been veerryy
different to every other time. Usually a curious and introspective travel around my room or house, these new experiences were a ferocious internal
battle against that feeling of 'presence' located where my hand is. I can only describe it as completely disorientating spacially as if I'm being
dragged through the room, noisy, nightmarish and very oppressive, I can hear myself fighting trying to scream in terror and regaine my place in my
cosy bed but only hearing my growling guttural attempts... as my other half lies in blissful ignorance right next to me!
Then suddenly its all over and I'm back, open my eyes and contemplate for a few mins before drifting off.
