Excellent thread TyrantFlameViper I,m glad I took the time to read all the posts.
In the last 3 weeks when i've been nodding off to sleep I to have heard a strange buzzing/vibrating sound, the first time it happened I thought it
was an insect buzzing close to my ear however, the second time I let it persist out of curiosity and found it very hypnotic at which point I fell into
a deep sleep.
After reading this thread I think there could more to this. I used to get the feeling of being dragged down my bed quite often when I was younger and
again in the past few months. I've also had SP happen to me many times, with that came the sense that I was being watched and once I could of sworn I
could see a dark shadow lurking by my door. this didn't frighten me (anyone who has read the dune novels or my signature will know the Mantra of
fear, it actually does help!).
One other thing I expirience occasionally is a sort of flash in my room, it only lasts a split second but it almost looks like a starburst accompanied
by a sharp snap or pop, the thing about this which freaks me out a bit though is I see it differently depending on wether or not my eyes are open or
closed. if I have my eyes closed its like someone briefly shining a light over my eyes, if I have my eyes open I see the starburst as if its about a
meter away from me.
Has anybody else expirienced this? over the last 3 years I've gone from super materialist to finding out about myself spiritually, I,ve started
trying to meditate as well, could this have something to do with it? any help would be much appreciated.
Once again thanks for making this thread and hearing me out its filled with the kind of expiriences I needed to hear about I know I'm not alone.
Yo Bro, you know the groove mate.
A few years ago I was into the whole OBE thing.
I'd read that you can OBE very easily by realising you were in a dream while dreaming and then imagine yourself leaving your sleeping body OR don't
wake up completely just enough to be in SP then let yourself float up.
A good friend of mine who is wise to the ways often tells me that a cord anchors you to your body so if you OBE it's impossible for it to severed
unless the body is killed. I asked him about the entities and so on and he said they were not formidable as long as you kept up your courage and
showed no fear to them. He even went as far as saying that being abusive and defiant while in there presence was ok to do. But that's his style and
not really mine.
Interestingly, he liked to sleep downstairs on his couch, prefering it than to his bed.
For me I've never OBE'd while on my back. For some reason I am prone to nightmares and night terrors on my back most of the time.
So both times I OBE'd I was on my front. One time dreaming then out of the dream into OBE. Second time was waking up to a SP state then OBE.
I managed to OBE just a foot or two. Then back in the body. No entities or visible threats. The second time less than a foot. I could of gone
higher but wanted to make sure the first time wasn't part of the dream.
I was impressed but didn't want to take it any further for various reasons. Main one being that I knew that other 'things' hung out in that
'zone' and I didn't want to get any hassle from them or end up in trouble out there.
A few years later I was staying in a hotel of the night and woke in the middle of the night (one of the few times I was sleeping on my back). And in
at the far corner of the room was a ball of light. Not a fully solid ball but more faint around the edges and solid in the middle. Not threatening
though, more of a vigilant patroling being than a dangerous entity out to annoy and upset. An Angel maybe?
For me being a catholic (lapsed) I think my faith is part of the reason I don't want to push it and start going back to OBEs. Call me stuck in
second gear here but part of me reasons that going onto 'their' turf in OBEing might be akin to the little monkey climbing down the tree and yanking
on the tail of the sabre tooth tiger to go for a ride.
Thats part of me though, the other part of is like 'go on, do some more and push the envelope a bit!'
