When I was about 12 years old, my mom made an appointment for me to get two of my teeth pulled from my mouth. So the day finally came -- and my mom drove me to this like house/half dentistry/mouth surgery place. Anyway though, so I walk into a pretty big sized room, with a nice, comfy, warm looking chair in the middle. It didn't look intimidating or anything at all. It was very nice, classy - comfortable and relaxing as a whole environment, so I felt at ease.
Here is the part that starts to interest me a lot...
I sat down in the chair, relaxed; and waited for them to begin.
As they begun, they put me on laughing gas.
He [the surgeon?] counted me down from the number five, telling me that my whole body would become relaxed very quickly - and it did - BECAUSE I WAS VERY GIGGLY!:)
I felt that my body had become somewhat air-like, and fluid. It's like I had taken on another body, but chose to keep my eyes closed, because I was so relaxed? I guess I just enjoyed this state of temporary mind that I was at so much - that I didn't really bother to "open" my eye (s)
Here is the uncomfortable part of my story, that I STILL have trouble telling because it's hard to remember what happened fully.
The surgeon guy removing my two teeth told me that I would feel a small pinch in my gums. This was to numb my gums, so I didn't feel pain when he pulled the teeth.
*I feel the small irritating pinch of the needle in my gums* but at the same time, I LITERALLY feel what is my astral body/whatever body take off, OUT of my body - without warning too! - so I open my eyes only to be looking down at my body. I swear I could only recognize what appeared to be my sleeping body. I didn't see any "astral beings" or anything like they say you might. But you know? Better yet, I didn't even sense or see any human bodies near my physical body either! All I saw was a new "SIGHT". I can't even tell you what it looked like. It was maybe GOLD PARTICLES? Silver? Auburn? Bright but yet very beautiful? It was so new to me, that I didn't recognize any of it at all! I know that I was very frightened by all of this intake. So naturally I tried to close whatever "eyes" I was looking at, at the time.
This non-recognition of "whatever" I was seeing at the time scared the heck out of me!
[If you didn't get what I said from that paragraph, I just said: I saw through an astral-sight all of a sudden. It was scary so I tried to close whatever eyes I had.]
My reaction was: "Am I dead?" I thought that I was dead. So I 'cried' or SOMETHING. Maybe since I was in astral form, I just projected a sad energy field or something. It just felt equivalent of crying to me?
So when I woke up after what seemed like hours, I asked my mom in the car: "how long was I out?" She told me 10 minutes. 10 MINUTES.
After I fell asleep at home, I never remembered this experience until I was 15 years old. THEN I got more into my spirituality. And asked my mom what she thought it was. She [my mom] thought it was an out of body experience.
I'm sixteen now, and experiencing a lot of psychic empathy. And when I say that, I mean that I'm aware of people's/entities/things energy and energy fields, and the fact that I can pick up A-LOT more on emotions in a room, a crowd, ect.
That's empathy right?
Well I'm really interested in all of this happening to me, and what WILL be happening to me. And I'm open minded to EVERYTHING, so I'm thinking that maybe as I'm getting older, I'm coming into some sort of psychic awareness? No one in my family is psychic, but it shouldn't have any effect on my experiences right?
So I have three questions for anyone out there reading this (and you can answer one, or any OR ALL of them if you'd like. =]
1) Did I astral project?
2) Am I an empath? <---- [I'm almost 90% positive I am...]
3) General advice for a struggling psychic/empath/?other things?
