I ask 'where did I go?' to those of you who have OBEs.
Many months ago I read the Robert A Monroe trilogy and followed that with Matrix V, so I am reasonably informed what is an OBE.
I have read a handbook on lucid dreaming, but I have never made any efforts to achieve either OBEs or lucid dreams, but often deliberately redirect the events in my dream - so that may be spontaneous lucid dreaming.
My dreams are unremarkably mundane, and I prefer it that way - I am not an 'adventurous' person.
Recently I had a dream interrupted.
I was moved to a place of totally black limitless emptiness and saw a spark which I knew to be me, which does seem strange since I was seemingly looking at it.
At the same time I experienced a profound emotional mixture of calm, delight and surprise, which spread through me rapidly from the head downwards.
The experience was over in an instant, or so it seemed, and my dream resumed where it had 'left off', although I do recall being left wondering 'what was that about?' - a question that persisted after I woke.
If I have been given a glimpse of where I am headed to, that would be lovely, but I wont let my ego think that the place is anywhere special, just that it felt good being there momentarily.
If you OBE people have been to that place, please supply me your opinion on what or where it was or is.
