I had a rather odd experience not too long ago, so far as I can tell I was asleep when I suddenly "woke up", I say "woke up" because my body still
seemed to be asleep. I couldn't move my body but I was totally aware of everything around me, at least my room anyways. Although I didn't actually
leave my body I still felt detached from it. But I know I wasn't dreaming just like you know when you wake up in the morning that you are no longer
dreaming. I don't really know how long it lasted, I was mainly trying to understand what was going on. I wasn't freaking out or anything more just
a "Humm... this is a little weird... I feel awake but i can't move....". I eventually just slipped back into being asleep and woke up in the
morning feeling fine but I remember the experience quite vividly.
Before this happened I never really took OBE's and Astral Projection seriously but since this happened I have done a little bit of reading on the
subject and am kinda curious as to what exactly happened. I was reading the Astral Projection research post here on ATS and it talks about lifting up
or rolling out of your body. My thought is some how I involuntarily got to this point but because I didn't really understand what was going on I
didn't progress past it. I haven't attempted to recreate the experience yet and it hasn't happened again "naturally" so far. Just looking for
some feed back from the ATS members that have more experience with OBE's and Astral Projection.
