Well this has been a strange week.
Not sure if anyone even reads this thread anymore, but I came (once again) to give my insight, and hopefully get some advice.
For about 5 days now I've been having sleeping problems - I'll doze into a light slumber, manage to get into the Hypnogogic state without even
meaning to (although I've seemed to find a really easy trick which does it for you - if interested, hit me up with a PM!), and been waking up
sporadically throughout the night every hour or so.. It sucks.
Now tonight, my flatmate stumbles in drunk and wakes me from one of these Hynogogic dream states that I'm in, annoys me and goes to bed.. I figure
whatever, back to sleep.
Manage to accidentally (again) get into that state, and I'm in some sort of dream where I'm being chased around the house by dogs. I then find a
baby at the bottom of the stairs called Lucas, and I'm trying to carry him up. I'm struggling, he's really heavy for some reason and I feel quite
drunk (in the dream). What seems like hours go on, and in the dream I make it upstairs and fall on a couch.. Then these dogs start sniffing around my
arms and I swear to god, I knew I was dreaming but I could feel it in real life. I remember feeling cold touches on my arm twice, and twitching away
Incomes this big loud soul-crushing noise similar to a really old tap that squeaks when you turn it on - my whole body starts trembling and vibrating
intensely and I actually think to myself - oh cool, I'm going into an OBE! Let's ride it out, see how it goes.. In my head there's this whole
visualization of the Dr Who intro where it's all purple and vortexy.
Next thing I know I feel as though I'm upsidedown, as though my head is where my feet should be.. Majorly confused - having never really got this far
before I tried to 'lift' out of my body to no avail. I remember breathing really heavily and then waking up, incredibly spun out.
Now you're thinking 'cool story bro' - thanks
But really what's getting to me is :
How to lift out of your body?
Why haven't I been able to sleep for the last 5 days and keep having these incredibly vivid dreams?
Am I safe when I'm in that state? (I ask because occasionally that hypnogogic state will lead me to believe there's something in my room around me -
creeps me the # out.
So anyway yeah PLEASE, anyone with ANY experience with OBEs, please drop me a message. I'd really appreciate it, got a lot going through my head
