Though I have not authored a thread about it lately, I have been able to participate, willingly, in lucid dreams and out of body experiences.
I have been doing this for so long that I can literally have an OBE at will, when it is bed time that is. I generally need to know 1 day ahead of time
that I want to have an OBE, as there are some things that I can do to make entering OBE much easier.
Thanks to this skill/gift I have been able to experience most every aspect of a Lucid Dream and an OBE.
From sleep goblins who steal your breath while paralyzing you, sleep paralysis w/o goblins, and the feeling of a lead blanket slowly being laid over
my body, to the electric tingle and rare 'shattering' sounds just before or after an OBE, I have been fortunate to experience them all and analyze
them in my own way - for my own understanding.
In the earliest experiences I can recall, there was almost always a dynamic of pure evil to the experiences. Being paralyzed, unable to speak or move,
with a feeling of a demon sent straight from hell just about to snatch me up and take me with them has always been the most terrifying aspect of these
One instance in particular, I awoke to a nasty case of sleep paralysis* - unable to move at all or yell for help, but able to move my eyes - I was
overwhelmed with a sense of danger and extreme fear. I just knew there was something real about to kill me any moment.
Unable to move my body, I scanned the dark room and was shocked at what I found before me, at the edge of my bed. It was about 3.5ft tall, wearing
what seemed to be a hooded robe - similar to an Ewok*(?) - and was gazing directly at me.
It had a terrifying troll face with coarse hair around the outside, a snub nose like a boar, extremely long and sharp teeth sticking out of the top
and bottom with an equally nasty 2nd set of identical teeth, only smaller, inside the 1 set.
I was so scared I literally almost cried. I tried yelling at the top of my voice, but found myself saying incomprehensible mumbles in a relatively
quiet tone. This frightened me even more.
It was a stand-off. The demon was patiently waiting at the end of my bed for me to fall back asleep and I was struggling to break the SP.
After what seemed like 10 minutes, but was probably less than 1 minute, I broke the paralisis with a single finger twitch. Quickly, over the next
several seconds, I struggled to completely break the hold SP had on me.
As each part of my body began to slowly come back to life, the demon slowly began to disappear. My arm could move, the Demon's arm disappeared, my leg
could move, the Demon's leg vanished, etc.
I was scared to go back in the room and go to sleep, but eventually calmed down and slept it off - made worse by the fact I live alone and had no one
for comfort, haha, it actually scared me bad enough to wish my mom was there, like when I was a kid with a nightmare.
Although I have had many auditory and visual hallucinations related to SP and OBE, I have never encountered a creature as horrible as that little
Demon, and hope I never do.
Once I began having more and more control over my SP and OBEs, I developed the ability to remove the fear from the equation. In fact, I believe the #1
reason most people can not fully experience an OBE is because the fear dynamic of the experience is way too strong and frightens them awake before
actually seperating from their body and entering an OBE.
I have had many many experiences where I can feel a very evil, demonic presence nearby, but rarely see it embodied in a physical form.
Recognizing an Evil presence during SP is a hallmark for SP and pre-OBE. Almost everyone who reports SP and OBE confirm their feeling of an Evil
presence at some point in the experience.
Many people will experience SP at one point or another. Fewer will have the ability to experience SP more than a handful of times and still fewer will
experience regular SP. A percentage of SP experiencers will also experience an OBE at some point in their life, some of them will experience multipke
OBE's, and some will be able to control OBE's.
If you are experiencing SP on a regular basis, or if you can trigger it yourself, my advice would be to overcome the fear aspect and work on reaching
seperation from your body and entering into a full OBE.
It is an absolutely amazing experience. An experience where you can do whatever you please; fly, walk through walls, find answers to questions, seek
out wisdom, and possibly even grow spiritually.
One thing is certain, for me anyway, the feeling of euphoria that accompanies a successful OBE outweighs the fear found within SP experiences 100:1.
You can go to sleep in a bad mood and, after OBE, wake up in the best mood imagineable.
Sorry for the long post and hope it helps some.
