My First Out-of-body Experience. I Think?


I'm not 100% sure what just happened but I think I just had an out of body experience?

I went back to bed this morning and that's when it happened. It started off as a very weird dream, I cannot remember the entirety of it but basically all my relatives where having a get together at my house and something was making panic.

Anyways, I was frantically running through the house almost in hysterics and all of a sudden I stopped. I was fine. It was like my conscious woke up and I was telling myself that it wasn't real and that it'll be okay. I think this is reffered to as a lucid dream because I was able to change my dream now that I was aware (like I noticed my dads and my room were in the wrong places so I swapped them so it was exactly like my real house).

I walked into my room and rested my head against the door and sighed again and told myself it wasn't real. Then the blue walls of my room started to fade out and I think I opened my eyes. I say I think because my room does not have windows and is very dark to begin with so my eyes very well could have been closed, but bottom line, I do know I was awake and conscious.

I tried to roll over and reach for my glasses but I couldn't move. I struggled but It was like these limbs weren't my own, or as if my whole body was in a caste.

My legs started to vibrate and tingle and the feeling went up through my body. I started panicking for real because I had no idea what was happening, and then there was the sensation. My legs felt like they were being lifted up in the air while I was still laying flat in my bed. Then came my torso and my head. They felt like they were rising (note I was still unable to move in a pitch black room).

Then all I could see was a black/gray and red room. It was kind of plushy and soft feeling but also looked like there was prison bars. Then I just heard this voice. It was deep and horse and sounded a little robotic. It said hello. The voice was very cold and unwelcoming so I got scared and screamed and I was back in my room again, complete control of my body.

I'm not sure if this was a real sleep paralysis/ out of body experience thing or not because usually when people talk about this they saw themselves and like they just walked out of their body themselves. This felt like I was ripped from my case and dragged to another dimension.

I want to believe it's a dream but I'm having a hard time just because I know I was awake. And also that voice. It just felt to real I could actually hear it coming from from behind me. Usually when I dream I just imagine people saying it, and if I do hear any voices it never comes from any general direction.

I'm just very confused and kind of scared and I was hoping someone would be able to tell me if I'm going insane or if this is an out of body experience and it wasn't just a weird dream. Do anyone else go through something similar?

9 days ago I experienced out of body experience once again, when my dreams are being manipulated, somehow my subconscious triggered astral projection, and I saw myself sleeping for at least 10 seconds I saw a small black portal above my body, and went back into my body and I felt my heart regurgitate. Seems like when I'm endangered in a dream or by an evil spirit, I have out of body experience.

Hello spaceandtime,
I agree that you have had an out of body experience. Not everyone who does sees himself or herself. Each one is different.
Take care not to deliberately leave your body for too long as you may be left feeling drained. Harm should not be likely to come to you, but I would not put it out of the realm of possibility should you decide to persue doing this again. Mainly what may happen is exhaustion.
Meditation can help you gain control.
Do not fear this should it happen again. Every experience can be different and should any problems develop you can always explore solutions here.
Take care,

Hello spaceandtime:)

I want to firstly assure you, yes, you have expirienced an out of body expirience, I have these myself and what describe sounds precisely the same! Projecting after becoming lucid in a dream is my favorite teqnique, because I usually do the same things in my dreams, I suddenly realize it's "not real." You can increase the chance of this happening by doing "reality checks." Durring the day, simply check to ensure you are awake. Are electronics working properly (conputers, phones, lightswitches)? Are your fingers distorted when you look at them? Try testing laws of physics, when you jump, do you start to float? Do you have inhuman abilities? (High jumping, stretching, etc)

It is time you learn of The Teachers. This is simply what we will call them, as they teach us new things.

The Teachers set up instances in the astral realm to help you over-come barriors in your waking, and sleeping life.

One of the greatest barriors/lessons is "fear"
This is why you had this frightening expirience. You cannot be harmed by these beings-they are illusons. They are "The Teachers" in disguise. You are being prepared to deal with more intense situations, perhaps you are destined for Soul Retrieval and helping people cross over, or maybe this will help you in dealing with frightening situations in "real life."

Here are some things to try if it occurs again:
1) know you cannot be harmed. You are strongly protected, you are un-harmable.
2) know this is a test, it is not real.
3) try "chasing after" your fears, challenge them, get in their face, say "do your worst!" You are beyond harm, watch them try & fail.
4) try sending love, usually this will cause them to disapear. I find giving them a nice kiss on the forehead does well.
5) try transforming it into something else (imagine it morphing into something harmless, a butterfly or bunny for example)

Let me know if you have any other questions, I hope this helps you!
You are destined for greatness.

Happy travels:)
