Weird Experience While Trying To Induce An Obe, Help?


For a few months now I have been researching and working myself up to trying and practicing astral projection, (yes, I am aware of possible dangers and have thoroughly read through on that subject), so last night I forgot to do my stuff before I went to bed and was woken up at 4:00 AM to the sound of my parents just getting ready for work. I had been awake for about an hour when I decided I would try one of those exercises where you lay down and imagine yourself reaching and pulling yourself out of your body by a rope hanging from the ceiling, (I enjoy this particular one as I've heard it can help reap results after a while), anyway. I was focusing on doing that for a while, and I guess I lost track of everything because as I was laying there, (not asleep mind you, I was still wide awake), when suddenly I was paralyzed. I couldn't move and felt these waves/pulsations of this strange sensation flowing from my chest or abdomen area going all the way down my arms and legs, and my head felt like I was swaying almost, though I wasn't moving. The paralyzation and the pulsations of WHATEVER flowing around my body stopped after about a minute when I started to feel nervous because I couldn't move and didn't know what was going on. I've never experienced that so naturally after a little bit I started to feel anxious. I've never actually achieved a successful OBE, so did this have to do with that? Afterwards I just went rolled over on my side and went to bed as I normally would. Has anyone else experienced this?

I've had three experiences like the one you mentioned, including the intense vibrations. The first happened to me during a lucid dream, a day or two after I'd read someone's account of an OBE, where they suggested spinning around in a circle (during an OBE or lucid dream) in hopes of invoking the vibration. It started as an extremely vivid dream, where I was in a house I'd never seen before, belonging to someone I'd never met before. There was an incredible amount of detail in the house; down even to the boxes in the pantry. We walked across a sort of utility room, where there was a dog with puppies. I glanced over at the puppies and noticed they were part dog, and part bird. At first I didn't think anything of it, but then it dawned on me that dogs and birds can't cross, and I realized I was dreaming. I remembered what I'd read, about spinning around in a circle, and did it. I FELT a very intense, very exhilarating vibration that I was able to invoke at will for a short while, before my dream became non-lucid again. This made me realize that I normally don't have bodily feelings at all in dreams. The vibration I experienced that night was by far stronger than any feeling I've experienced while conscious.

The next time it happened I was going through a very difficult period in my life. It was actually just a few months ago. I'd been consciously experiencing more intensely negative feelings than I ever even knew were possible. One night I fell asleep, I think. The next thing I knew I was in bed, exactly like I was previously, but I was feeling the same vibration, though this one was very unpleasant (where the first was very pleasant). I didn't feel paralyzed, but at the same time I knew that moving wasn't an option (it was different than sleep paralysis). Also, the vibration just continually happened, where the first time I could control it. This went on for what seemed like quite a while, and then it seemed like I fell back asleep.

The third time was just a couple weeks ago. It happened after a day where it seemed like I'd gained a lot of insight; when I'd had a very definite "aha" moment. That night I asked for a sign from the Universe (or whomever might be listening) to confirm the insight I believed I'd received. I said that I'd consider the vibrations to be one such sign. I fell asleep, and then found myself exactly where I was when I'd fallen asleep. It sure seemed to me like I was in bed, but I was in a different state. I somehow knew that I was capable of having the intense vibration, and I was able to invoke it at will. I laid there invoking the vibration (it was pleasant and exhilarating) for a little while, and then it was almost like I got bored with it, and fell back asleep.

With the exception of the 2nd experience I mentioned, this vibration seems to happen after the idea has been strongly suggested to me. It happened the first time after I read about someone else having the experience. And it happened the third time after I actually asked for a sign, and even suggested that the vibration manifest as that sign. In both cases there was a lot of suggestion.

Now, I'll tell you that I've asked to experience the vibration quite a number of times since I experienced it the third time (and a few times before that), and have gotten nothing in response. So, for me at least it's not just suggestion that makes it happen, although that seems to help.

I'm curious if you'll experience the vibration again, after talking about it, and hopefully making it more real in your head. To you, or anyone else reading who's interested in having this experience, here's what I suggest. Trust me when I tell you that next time you're having a lucid dream, you will feel that vibration if you spin around in a circle. I'd even suggest spinning around in a circle while you're conscious, to get yourself acquainted with the feeling of it. Then, next time you're having a lucid dream, spin around in a circle, and see what happens. Maybe even drop us a line here to tell us how it goes for you.

This is not weird at all. In fact, it's the norm for anyone who puts forth the effort towards this goal. The best thing you can do at this point is continue educating yourself from people who have genuine experience with this. Those who speak of a bunch of things to fear are usually not the ones. We all project naturally in our sleep every night (remembered as dreams) and manage to come back every night. Start with reading books like the ones from Robert Monroe and William Buhlman. You can also get a full list of "to-do's" from my sister site, which includes a Beginner's Guide, reading list, articles on what to expect (including the paralysis you speak of), any anything else a true student seeks to attain this.

But your efforts are starting to pay off so good job!
