I never intended to post new threads on ATS but this has been bothering me lately, so I'd love to get your input and ideas.
Over 10 years ago, I had 2 (very short) OBEs, one the most peaceful thing I've ever felt and one quite violent, but I found both to be rather
harmless. Even in the violent one, I felt safe, just more shocked about what was happening.
They stopped after I realized I need to close my chakras at the end of chakra cleansing meditations. All was good and normal for years minus my sleep
paralysis, lucid dreams, and "angelic" dreams (I have no other name for those).
Now I'm near 30 and the last few months I've been having OBEs again, about 4-5 times in the last 3 months. Actually, I would call them near-OBEs as
I don't really see anything, just feel the feelings. I almost want to say they're just sleep paralysis but they feel completely different (though
theoretically they feel the same). I'd wake up and hear this whirring/fluidy noise and for lack of a better description, I felt like fluid inside my
body, just weaving in and out and was all over the room in no time.
Unfortunately, these days the OBEs don't feel safe anymore. It feels like I'm either being sucked up out of my body from the feet at a 45 degree
angle with a strong vacuum or like my spirit is on a roller coaster.
I found that when I think of the word "love", or I think of my husband sleeping next to me, anything positive, I come back to my body, and I feel
safe and calm again, even if I'm still "circulating around inside and just outside my body", it's much slower and more stable.
This makes me wonder if OBE is actually not good afterall.
A side thing that bothers me is I remember when I was young, an "expert" said that when you die, you want to stay calm so you leave through your
head, and that you're going to hell if you leave from the feet/lower body. And here I was, being sucked out of my body from my feet.
Anyone has any idea or theories? Anyone else with similar experiences?
