Thanks for replying with your story. It sounds like it was a horrifying event for you. First off going through the out of body experience which is
already disorienting but then also being attacked.
I am glad that you can understand that. It is actually pretty funny because, unless a person has experienced leaving their bodies, then they really
have no idea how disorienting it can be! I must note that when I was attacked, that was only the second time that I had ever CONSCIOUSLY been out of
I think that most humans here are spiritual "babies" and that we are growing.
I wanted to compare my account with your a little bit. During my encounter and while floating above my bed I could not hear anything. Perhaps
I didn't hear anything because there was nothing to hear in the first place, not sure. Also during my encounter I had a sense that I could see
everything around me. I somehow knew that I was an orb of light. I'm not sure if I could see myself but I could definitely see through the walls in
I can completely understand what you mean here. This is another example of how a person would need to experience leaving their bodies before they
really "get it." When you leave your body you "feel" everything, and you can see everything as well, I know I could. It is simply a matter of just
shifting your perception. I too saw myself in a similar fashion, I was thought of it as a "mist of light" but with humans arms. That is what I
remember anyway, which is why I belive that we are spiritual "babies," I feel like our astral bodies and spiritual awareness grows with these
With practice you can see yourself better and better in the astral plane, and its not really a matter of "seeing" yourself, which is possible, as
much as it is "feeling" yourself.
When I saw the other orb of light I didn't have any anger or fear and I don't know why I reacted the way I did but I get the sense that I
knew that the other orb was not my friend. Almost instantly I crossed through the wall to the other room and began attacking the orb (by ramming it).
Not very descriptive, I know, but thats what I remember
Don't worry, it doesn't have to be really descriptive, its your experience! But this is another reason why I believe that we are spiritual babies.
It seems that when people first experience an OOBE they simply react to their environment. Kind of the same way a young child only reacts to its
physical environment. I am guilty of the same thing, I have only had two conscious moments of being out of my body, and both times I was only reacting
to everything that I felt and saw.
So during your experience - did you see your astral body? You mention that it was scratching and clawing you. From the sound of it, I get the
feeling that the being you encountered was not pure energy but was instead stuck in a skewed dimension. Perhaps a one way window in which they can
see in but we can't see out. Was the entity humanoid? Floating?
With this experience of mine, everything was dark in the basement so I could only really "feel" my way around. The entity that attacked me felt
humanoid, sort of in a Gollum way from Lord of the Rings. It felt like a very depraved humanoid...
I didn't really pay any attention to my astral body with this experience, I seemed more concerned with trying to figure out what was going on. Now,
my first OOBE was very different, I DID see my astral body.
I would like to know more about the being that attacked me. This is what I know for sure: About a week or two before the attack my girlfriend and I
had been watching videos about spiritual love an wholeness, we both had made the decision to be more loving, caring, etc..
I think that with our decision to be more spiritual loving towards other people we probably made more negative spiritual entities angry, and that was
simply a half-a$$ed attempt at trying to attack me for it.
The one thing that clicks with me is that you could sense the other entity's thought. I don't have a clear memory of this but I find this
the only likely explanation for my reaction. At that time it was not clear in my mind that I had been attacked by something the day I had my energy
If you were feeling like you were physically drained, and you couldn't figure out what it physically
could have been, then you were being
spiritually fed upon. My best advice to you would be to buy some sage! Sage is an amazing spiritual-cleansing tool.
Yes, I did sense the other beings thoughts. Everything in the astral plane is telepathic and that is exactly how it works.
That is why we are spiritual babies, when you left your body you could sense the other entities intentions and then simply reacted. Just like everyone
does when they first start.
Anyway, I appreciate the story. Would love to hear more.
No problem at all, if I get the oppurtunity, I will tell you about my first OOBE. It was very exciting.
EDIT: My wife declined to post her encounters because she's tired. However she remembers that on our first night there she had a dream that
a girl died in the place and she said I googled the next day and found the info that I listed on the first page about Natasha.
At first I didn't think that our experience was sexual in nature but I was wrong. I have a bad memory
Many nights our sheets/blankets would be pulled to the foot of the bed on my wife's side. When it first started we thought it was our cat pulling
the sheets but she's never done this before - even now at our new place (she's over 10 now). One Halloween my wife kept complaining that something
was touching her (in a sexual nature). She says this happened often. She also told me that she would hear whispers calling her name at night which
is the first I've heard of this.
SAGE! I promise it helps, my girlfriend and I have both been sexually assaulted spiritually. It can be a very disconcerting experience...
So you can kind of see why I may have reacted the way I did.
Oh yes, and I can understand completely.
