A few nights ago (November 7th to be exact) I was going to sleep in my bed. I was restless and could not get to sleep. I checked my alarm and closed
When I closed my eyes I had a strange occurrence. I had a vision of myself as I was currently (trying to sleep) and I was surrounded by blackness. The
instant my eyes closed I had a vivid picture of myself, and as time went by, my image became smaller and the blackness grew. The blackness seemed to
grow exponentially faster the longer my eyes were closed.
The strangest part about it was the feeling that the blackness was part of me. It felt like I was growing out of my body (for lack of a better term).
Though I was looking at myself, my perspective was from the blackness. Interestingly, I was awake and conscious during this whole time (It wasn't
long about 10 seconds).
I opened my eyes. The instant my eyes opened this stopped, I was back in my bedroom. I noticed that this only affected me when my eyes were closed,
including when I blink. I continued closing my eyes and opening them to think about what I was experiencing.
What I found out was that the blackness had substance. From what I felt during the experience it was me and it was three dimensional. It expanded from
my image in the center outwards in all directions, and my perspective was as if I was looking into a bubble.
-I was COMPLETELY conscious and could control my eyelids perfectly
-When my eyes were closed, I had absolutely no control over my vision. I could not manipulate it like one can a day dream.
-It happened to me again on Monday night, about 3 hours later (2:30 am) than last Wednesday (11:30 pm).
-It does not stop until I get out of bed and do something
-I could not go to sleep while it was happening, and I had my eyes closed for about 20 minutes straight, the vision just continued
Alright, I think I explained it as good as I can, it is just hard to describe many of the parts like the connection I had with the 'blackness'. I am
just interested on what people think of this, and maybe get some insight on why its happening.
