Been reading into OOBE, Lucid Dreaming, Astral Projection etc... a lot recently and a few of the pointers i read on a particular thread makes me think I've already experienced an OOBE, i can remember clearly being almost asleep, then suddenly a massive amount of white noise, followed by a literally unexplained feeling, my mind raced, i walked out of my bed, downstairs to the living room, i can only explain the next feeling like this, everything had a sort of bubble around it, i thought at the time i was just walking about half asleep, but i can remember now, i had a fear of looking back at my bed, possibly my mind safeguarding my from awakening a bit too soon (Seeing my body whilst at the same time walking away from it, mind-blown sort of moment) and scaring me, and allowing me to explore this sensation a little longer, i felt intense, scared, confused, my mind raced with a mathematical solution that i seemed to think was important, but i can't recall it... The more i read, the more i'm convinced this was an OOBE...

Replies are welcome, help is appreciated as always

The way you explained it sounds that you've experienced an OOBE. Congratulations! At times I look in the mirror and its likes Im realizing that Im trapped in flesh for the first time, then I have that sensation where my spiritual self is standing a few feet taller than I am now. I'd like to hear stories from others members if y'all would be so kind.

Thanks for sharing

reading is nice, but practice.. since u now know that strange things can happen by putting the body to sleep, may be the only real way for u to find any answers.

i can tell u this and that and the other, but it would still seem as fiction.

meditation is key.
varying levels of sleep, controlled by a focussed conscious mind.

meditation will take u thru to observing what goes on with the body and consciousness while the body sleeps. from the internal forces to consiciously experiencing vivid dreams.

going deeper and deeper in forms of body-sleep you will find new and amazing things. much deeper, and you set the body to a level where it is in a deep hibernation and everything is slowed down, breathing, pulse, heartbeats etc in effect, as deep as being dead without being dead.

this process is known as ego-death- it is to subdue the will of the flesh which grips tightly the spirit by your conscious will. relaxing the ego/flesh allows the spirit to become free of your rigid tension. most likely you have no idea how tense u are and how reflexive it is.. as most ppl.

think about when u feel pain, like say a ball flies out of the park and hits u in the back or head. ur immediate reaction would be to tense the affected area.. however, in matters of the spirit you would relax more and allow it to throb and flow.. realizing that tensing does not remove the pain. this accounts for some old ways of experiencing spiritual states thru pain. i myself have passed thru this method. growing associated with pain, understanding it, delving into it and let it be. the pain can be in any form, emotional or physical.

as it turns out.. controlling our bodies is not just about learning how to walk or lift an arm. there's much more hidden inside us.

but it is no easy task. it will require dedication and practice, just as anything else u seek to master.

Several years ago I had an 'experience', it was an OOBE or Near Death kind of thing. The feelings I had, and I remember as if it was yesterday were very different to yours. I felt absolute calm and serenity, even a lack of feeling anything would be closer to the truth. It was as though i was just observing what was happening.

I was in a bad way, I was in an induced coma in hospital due to my own stupidity, and every time the doctors tried to revive me I was going into seizure. During this time I felt myself sit up in the bed and the next thing I was looking down on myself from the corner of the room. I saw the doctors working on me and I saw my body convulsing violently, my parents were there looking very distrubed, I saw the worry on their faces and I could see that the medical staff were working hard to control the situation.

I had no sense of time but thinking back on it I imagine it was maybe a couple of minutes that I was 'there'.

I regained consciousness a few days later and as soon as I awoke I remembered what had happened, my parents were at my bedside and told me what had happened which just confirmed my experience.

It was something that I never want to forget.

I'm posting this here because I'm a fairly new member and don't have the requisite 20 posts to start a new thread. My apologies if this is out of place.

Anyway, I awoke early this morning sometime around 5:30. I remember looking at the clock and thinking I have about an hour or so until my alarm goes off. Then somewhere in that space between being asleep and being awake something happened. I saw a grey door - it was a double door and they were both closed. I began to get the sensation that this was not so much a dream but an OOBE. I felt afraid. It wasn't a "run for your life" kind of fear but the nervousness you get when you try something out of your comfort zone for the first time. The I heard a noise in my bedroom (house creaking, etc.) and I was awake.

I'm not sure if this was a dream, vision or OOBE but I still can't shake the sensation. And if it was something then where was I? Has anyone else experienced this?

" Did I have an OOBE?"

Are you asking us about your experiences.

One must define their own experiences,

Many will tell you No and explain why or not and others will say you did.

Who is right about your experience, only you can be.

Searching for answers is good, however don't stop when you have found them as many times what resonates with us as truth is often deception.

Define yourself and your experiences if you can or allow others to do it for you.

Allowing others do it for you is allowing others to give you your identity which you might not like.
