Okay , This is really weird .
It first happened when I was laying bed , my Aunt was in an adjacent room . So , I was ready to doze off , but suddenly I had a slight ringing sensation in my ear(white noise and a deep compressing feeling) and I felt like my eardrums were being compressed (air pumped into them with great force ,it did hurt).
The feeling you have when you an air craft takes-off .
After a few seconds of this , I was paralyzed , I heard some whispering , I couldn't more a muscle !
it took all my willpower and strength to regain control

The next event happened just a few days ago . i was sitting upright against the support of my bed and was listening to some alternative rock music + some metal too . I was finally tired and decided to call it a day , but again , I was paralyzed , I was sitting there shutting down my laptop , I saw myself from another perspective , wearing headphones and listening to some music whose lyrics were unknown to me . When I came back to my own self . I was just sitting there as I was before the event .

After three days (if memory serves) , I was sitting at the dining table preparing for an Environmental science exam , it was quite late , about 1am in the morning . I wanted some shut-eye so i lay in bed and started to meditate but suddenly I had the same ringing sensation in my ears again . I panicked and sat upright in fear . It was gone .

Whenever I think deeply or try to find answers from my subconscious mind , The ringing-ear thing happens to me

Have any of you had any similar experiences ?
Any experienced paranormal researchers in the house ?

I'm new to this forum. I'm french and not fluent in the language of your writing, I
understands very well orally.
My life and my experience forced me to seek answers on many topics such as anthropology,
Zoology, shamanism, but also about UFOs, NDEs, and much more.

Yesterday I worked on my computer and I felt a "deep depression" in my ears. I have many
traveled and my first fly, I did it at 2 weeks (very little I was going to live in Africa with my
family) so I know very well that feeling. Yesterday, it came suddenly in a violent manner and
for almost 20 seconds I was paralyzed by the feeling. With that sense, there's been a very, very sharp as the sound of a whistle for the dogs but much more powerful.

Our friends the Illuminati would not try a new weapon?
The earth would suffer "significant atmospheric pressures"?
Does anyone heard or experienced the same thing?

PS: this is my youtube channel:
I am a graphic designer and worked on many projects

Yes, I am having these too. Knowing a few things about alternate dimensions, I am of the strong belief that the dimensions are beginning to cross, in fact there are several threads in here that speak of basically the same thing. No too long ago, I was able to step out of my body and see it sitting there in the chair. These experiences can be frightening, but it is par for the course. You are safe, just getting ready to ascend.

The details of your experience aside, there would be no subjective difference between an hallucination and an OOBE. Sensory perception, paranormal or otherwise, occurs between your ears - it's entirely possible that auditory - or more likely sinusoidal - occurrences could trigger such perception events. Anything that affects your equilibrium will alter your perception 'perceptibly' - this effect could contribute to or trigger the OOBE, hallucination or other appropriate adjective to describe the extra sensory experience you seem to have encountered.

What you describe in the OP is what happens to me. Sleep paralysis. Yes it can be very distressing, but please, trust me, GO WITH IT. The crushing sensations fade to lucid dreaming.
Lucid dreaming is what you experienced when you say you saw yourself shutting down your laptop from a different perspective.

It took me a while of being extremely confused, but when I learned to let the crushing painful paralysis take over, I would find myself crossing over to a dream state in which I would roll of my bed onto the floor, I would open one eye (very difficult) and realise that in reality I was actually still in bed. So, closed the eye, back to being on the floor. I concluded that his was lucid dreaming. This happened many more times and by and by I learned how to utilize it, I would, at will jump up from the ground and fly uninhibited all over places I know or places I create.

As I stated in another thread though, when I realised just how much I could create at will, I kind of get caught up in myriad sexual encounters of my own design
and neglect to use the experience to it`s full advantage.

In short though, don`t allow the paralysis to freak you out. Let it consume you and you will be greatly entertained.

That is exactly what i would like to achieve , Lucidity in my dreams .
However , the fear of being possessed/OBE is very terrifying . I would like to Achieve the state once again .
Any suggestion and pointers?

Hmm, well, in lucid dreams I have at times felt a "3rd party but I never looked on it as being able to possess me, I always assumed it was just a projection of my own consciousness.

I`m familiar with any specific techniques but I would certainly say this, don`t be scared, you are in control, it is a vast playground where anything is possible.

I have had a few more intrusions into the other-side/altered conscious states .
Once I heard someone commanding me . I couldn't roll my eyes to see the figure . All i could do was feel and sense the presence .
I also had another intrusion . I could distinctly hear a women giving out a painful , shrilly cry .

I want a full-blown OBE , but I am scared of the voices in my head .

i would call this an out of body experiance
you were paralyzed but still aware, some call this mind awake body asleep.
when you feel that paralyzing feeling, just relax, and you will either come of your body and proceed with your astral adventure, or you will wake you body and regain control.
if you get scared it will also bring you out of it, but it can be really really scary if you dont know what is happening.

as to weather it is a hallucination or an OOBE, i think i doesnt really matter.
to me is a spiritual experiance, and even if im hallucinating it doesnt matter because the experiance is still meaningful, and still improtant.

i would say if we are going to call oobe's hallucinations, then we have to call dreams hallucinations as well.

just remember, when your paralyzed, relax and remain calm, and you will pop right out of your body, or regain control.
some people also experiance extreme fear at these times. along with being paralyzed, they have a feeling of an entity in the room with them watching, or a crushing feeling on their chest and they feel as tho they cant breath, sometimes accompanied by a figure sitting on their chest, like a daemon, alien, or witch (most common entities seen at this time).

we can all give you advice on how to leave your body or what to do when you get out, but it is an incredibly personal experiance. you will need to develop you own personal techniques on how to leave your body and how you will travel when your on the astral plane.

good luck and i hope you have some amazing spiritual experiences
