Have you ever had a dream in which you were completely convinced that you were lucid and don't even remember falling asleep? If so, I can relate. I'm not entirely sure if I was experiencing the beginning of an OBE or what but I'm completely confused.
In my dream, I thought that I was just laying in bed, meditating. I began to imagine myself laying in grass in a deep meditative state. I was listening to the birds and the wind and I felt very grounded. (I don't meditate a lot and I've never had that kind of experience before so it felt nice) Suddenly, I abruptly snapped out of this and "woke up" to a strange tingling sensation in the back of my neck. Then, I started to slowly sit up in bed, but I could not feel my body and it felt like I was being pulled. At one point, I thought to myself, "Oh, I'm going to Astral Project" but I'm still not sure if it was my physical body or my spirit that was being pulled. This calm conclusion quickly erased from my mind when I began to hear strange electronic sounds, like beeping and whirring. At this point, I thought that I was being abducted. It sounds silly and irrational but I was absolutely terrified. I could not control my body and I felt like whatever was pulling me had a plan to take me or something. I woke up from this weird dream when I tried to scream in my sleep.
Now, I've never experienced an OBE before and I'm not one to assume that aliens are abducting me, but whatever this experience was, it still terrifies me. At first I thought that maybe negative entities were trying to force me out but that doesn't explain the terrifying noises that I heard. I have had frightening dreams before, including many in which I have died, but none of them parallel this strange experience. I know that this story probably doesn't make a lot of sense but I've been having difficulty sleeping since. I really want to know if I'm just overreacting and it's nothing or if I might have experienced the beginning of an OBE. I'm confused as to why it was so terrifying and I would deeply appreciate any honest comments from others.
