My two cents:
I used to experience conscious sleep paralysis and vibrations a lot more than I do nowadays, so my opportunities to experiment with it scientifically
are, unfortunately, rare.
I associate it with the OBE phenomenon because it's often preceeded my OBEs. Sometimes the vibrations are comforting and warm. Other times, the
sensation is different and seems sinister and frightening.
I experienced the "sinister" form of the vibrations again two weeks ago. Interestingly, as it was happening, I had the distinct impression that it
felt like "feedback." Feedback like you'd get if you sent an auxilliary channel to itself on an audio mixing console.
And my recognition of it being like feedback reminded me of something one of the OBE gurus mentions in one of their books. It's been years since
I've read it (and at the time I'd never had experience using AUX sends on a mixing console), so I can only be vague here: the author (probably
Robert Bruce, but possibly Robert Monroe) mentions an unpleasant feeling occurring when the "body double" is drifting out but lingering in close
proximity to the physical body. To remedy the unpleasant feeling, he'd have to put some distance between the, well, the etheric body and the
physical body. That's paraphrasing. But, come to think of it, I'm pretty sure the author does indeed describe the sensation as "feedback."
I'm inclined to think it's Robert Bruce that mentions it, although Robert Monroe was the former audio engineer.
Anyway, I don't know about you guys, but the feedback sensation during paralysis gives me the creeps, and the last thing I want to do while
experiencing it is have a projection; the feeling is just too negative or "evil."
