I had a common symptom of sleep paralysis, which it has seemed to stop.
The reason fear is created, is so you can remember the experience. Usually when people go back into their body, they don't remember this experience
they just had at all. An example is "I rarely have dreams." This is what you said. EVERYONE has dreams daily, they just do not remember it. I can be
one of those who can say "I rarely have dreams." Why? because I do not remember them.
Do not think bad of these experiences. You just have to overcome it.
The guy standing distant from you was your spirit guide. He always is with you and protects you, he will also help you getting to where you need, do
not fear him.
Dreams can help you face real life situtations.
When facing sleep paralysis, do not struggle. Obviously you can not talk, or move your body, the only thing you can do is see with your eyes. You may
be able to slightly move you fingers or toes. When you are facing this situation, I want you to just move your toes if you can or your fingers, do not
struggle or go against it if you cant, it actually makes thing worse. What you CAN do though is hum with your mouth, you may not be able to open your
mouth, but you can hummmmm with your vocals, this will make the process of sleep paralysis go by faster.
As for the purple, you were entering the tree of life. Prior to me having my first OBE, a shaman which I have been speaking with about 1-2 years ago
told me he would be there with me. About 4-5 others did it at the same time. After a bout 15-30 minutes I came back and told him "All I saw was
purple, it was somewhat blurry" He told me It was the entrace to the tree of life. The tree of life's entrance is Malkuth which is purple.
Greater ability to discriminate in your life; to overcome a sense of inertia in life; physical health problems of self and others;
affairs of home; greater self discovery; elemental life; realm of the saints and spirit-guides. (color = olive / archangel = Sandalphon / feel =
earth-like, physical, grounding )
More information on the tree of life can be found here: www.wisdomsdoor.com...
The owner of the site is the shaman which I spoke to over IRC.
I had felt great incredible warmth come over my body at the entrance. He did say he would be with me, and this is what he did.
heres some info on OBE Travel
and heres articles he made about dreams
The tree of life is where all knowledge is held, about your past and future and the universes knowledge.
I hope this helped, if you have any further questions, feel free to ask. If I know the answer I will respond, If I do not know, I will tell you so.
