Hi, I had some experiences like that some years ago. Happened as you described it, 20 to 30 minutes after falling asleep. But I always had a
high-frequent sound in my head (not my ears) and felt like my body was glued to the ground (bed). I couldn't move physically, though my sight has
been free to move. I've seen persons, but never the same characters. Often those visions have been violent and frightening, but even more often they
were just very interesting. And they happened not only in the room I was sleeping in.
Somebody told me it sounds like astral body experiences, which could mean anything: traveling through time and space, even to other dimensions. And I
really almost always felt like I was in other dimensions, though I was too afraid to stay longer and always tried to fight the paralysis of my body
and to wake up within. Sometimes I woke up and was still in another vision, like a dream in a dream. I really think you should handle it at least as a
lucide dreaming, means you should try to control the direction and the situation in order to get more information. But I'm still not sure whether you
could get harmed. In my experiences very often the high pitching sound was increasing in frequency and intensity, which made me afraid of a "burn
out" of my brain cells, so I always tried to interrupt at this point. Never met anybody who could explain it properly, though.
