OOBE "Realtruth" Exclusive Story
Some call it OOBE and some Astral Projection same thing.
I want my fellow ATS'ers to know that the story you are about to read is an actual account. My life was changed profoundly years back, and the way I
now look at life, my being and who I truly am. I was a bit hesitant on posting this account because it is a personal experience, and unless your in my
shoes I felt that many people may not relate.
It was some years ago. I will never forget what happened to me, because I was scared to death after the event happened. And it forever changed my
perception of life. I was in my late teens and the group of guys I hung out with decided that they wanted to go to Canada to drink, get drunk and
party. I was the designated driver most of the time because drinking was not my forte and that night I didn't have a drop. Anyhow the bars close at
1am in Canada and we got over the Ambassador Bridge it was about 2am, by the time I got everyone home it was 3:30am. I was a bit tired, but more
hungry. I was living with my parents at that time, so life was carefree.
My parents lived in a 2 story home with a finished basement, making it a 3 level home. I pulled up in the driveway about 4am and went straight
downstairs to get something to eat and switched on the TV. The Television was situated directly across from the couch where I was seated. I proceeded
to the kitchen, in the basement, and found a bowl of pasta in the refrigerator left over from dinner. After eating the most of the bowl, I started to
get really tired and I decided I would go to bed, so I started up the basement stairs.
My room was on the 2nd/top floor so up I went past the 1st floor, then one more flight to go, by the time I reached the top step I thought Crap! I
forgot to turn the TV off, so back down the stairs I went. Down and down I went descending to the basement.
When I reached the landing in the basement I turned and looked to the couch that was directly across from the TV, where I had been sitting. I felt a
numbness overcome me, to my bewilderment there was some guy sitting on the couch that I didn’t recognize, but he didn’t move or see me, so I
quickly jumped back up a couple of steps and hid behind the wall coming down the stairs. OK! What do I do I thought.
I wasn’t really scared at that moment just a bit puzzled to who it was. Did a friend come home with me that I couldn’t remember or did they walk
in after I went upstairs? Did a stranger find his way in the house? Things were a bit off and I was feeling a bit strange.
My next thought was ok, I am going to peek around the corner here and see who the hell this is. I poked my head out, around the corner, hmmm he looks
like he is sleeping, but it’s a bit dark cause the TV is flashing from dark to light, but I think he looks a bit familiar. As the TV shown bright
for a long moment I was able to see this person clearly. My reaction was, wait a second WTF!, that guy has a bowl of pasta in his lap, yes he is
eating my mother’s pasta.
My thoughts raced on, but I pondered for a brief moment as the TV got brighter and I could see this person more clearly now. This guy really looks
familiar…….then it hit me, all at once. WTF! That’s me! Or my body or my self…WTF! But…I’m here…….I got overwhelmingly scared. Just at
that thought and moment I snapped back into my body, my eyes opened and I was positioned facing the TV, sitting on the couch, with the pasta bowl in
hand and adrenalin starting to overcome my body. I a feeling of complete numbness was consuming my body, for the adrenal rush.
I didn’t know what to think or do. I was just on the stairs looking at myself or my body now I am here. OK! I am going nuts. You all have to
understand at that time you couldn’t just jump on the net and start researching or asking people. What do I do? I sure as hell wasn’t going to
wake my parents and tell them what just happened, because for sure they would think I was nuts. So the next day I was up and off to the library, after
2 weeks there nothing, nothing in any areas, psychology, or anything made sense of my experience, nothing even remotely close. And who was I going to
Maybe I should talk to a priest, I thought……….nope, I wasn’t even going to go there. I was drawn to a little off the wall book store, in my
area that I thought might have something I could use. The bookstore was a combination psychic shop and metaphysical bookstore, at that point I had
never even read a single book on metaphysics, or stepped foot into a shop like this. So I spent about 1 hour flipping through books but I found
A lady near me was sitting in a chair reading a book, she had been there a while and I was getting a warm feeling from her, she looked over and said
hello how are you? I replied, Good!, not so well, she said is there something I can help you with? I own the store and maybe I can direct you to what
you need. I said well you may think I am nuts, but here’s my situation and I told her what happened, she laughed and said your fine you had an
involuntary OBE or Out of body experience. I replied a what? Here she said, you can flip through these books here and choose the ones that most
resonant with your situation. I thanked her and immediately began my research into what had happen to me.
I was so thankful after reading many, many OBE accounts I was not alone and it was normal. Most people don’t remember when OBE’s happen. One of
the things I remember from a particular book is that most people have experienced OBE’s. The book said something like this: The best indicator is
when your laying in bed and your just drifting off to sleep and you feel like you are falling or drifting away and you snap or jolt back into your
body and it wakes you. You get the jolt and your whole body jumps. I’ll bet most people have had or remember that experience.
Well from that point on my life or state of being had taken a dramatic turn, because it was the start of learning that I was more than my physical
shell or body. I have had many profound and enlightening experiences since then, but now believe that we not physical beings having a spiritual
experience, but energy or spiritual beings having a physical experience.
