Many of my conscious OBEs through the years have been fairly innocuous, often traveling to space and visiting various planets, galaxies and so forth. I've floated above Earth where Earth was about the size of a large beach ball held at arm's length. It was stunning. No photograph, no still shot...Unencumbered, REAL, right in front of me. I've "stood" on the Moon and I'm always floored by how many stars I can see once beyond Earth's atmosphere.
That is why the following experience really stood out to me. I was on one of my astral excursions when suddenly I found myself in a barren, desolate space. "Creepy" is an excellent adjective to describe this place. The sky took on an unusual greenish/grey/amber hue (hard to describe) and sprinkled occasionally throughout these mostly empty fields were very ancient, dead trees with knotted branches. Director Tim Burton would be right at home.
I noticed people milling about with no real purpose or direction. They didn't look quite like gory zombies which are often depicted in horror films. More like ashen, lethargic people with the aura of hopelessness. Normally I can float and fly quite easily when in the astral planes but I felt myself struggling to lift myself upwards to escape this place of despair. That's when I noticed their face expressions change. It was the first time I felt any semblance of pleasure coming from them. Their contorted smirks and grins signalled their satisfaction with my fear and struggle to escape.
It was like food for their depleted Souls. I tried and tried and simply could not rise into the sky. Finally, with one final focused attempt I was floating above the scene. With newly-acquired feelings of relief and safety I said (telepathically) to nobody in particular:
"Where is this place?"
That is when I heard one of them say "The Fields of Sharrot."
After returning to my physical body I quickly got online and searched for the term but came back empty. This was probably early 2000's or so. In a recent search I see there is a place in the UK called Sharrat Field but the photos do not resemble my experience in the least. I do not think this is a place on Earth but some type of purgatory for lost Souls in some low level plane. Perhaps it is some spirit's "Hell" they have manifested for themselves either knowingly or unknowingly.
I'm curious if any other traveler has ever heard this term before or visited a similar location? I suppose there are many more like it out there in other worlds and dimensions but I always found it fascinating that it had a particular name I have never forgot.
