Just the other day, maybe two or three ago I tried to submit this story but the webs submission was delayed until yesterday. So I wrote a story a few months ago about something similar to this and its really something I do not enjoy and have no control over and I need help with it. I have for at least the past 7 years that I am consciously aware of been astral traveling during my first 2 hours of sleep. I was under the impression when I researched it that it takes longer to get to theta (or whichever) sleep stage to actually be under enough to do astral traveling?
A few nights ago I wasn't feeling well and had a headache and decided to sleep it off. I fell asleep but then I looked down at myself from an upward slanted view and saw myself asleep. My arms were numb and my fingers tingling. A presence of some sort grabbed me and performed every act of mistreatment on me possible I tried to scream but I had no voice we fought in my room I tried to get away the door was just out of my reach. It felt so real, this happened once more about this time last year. Then I just dreampt weird things after that like my divorced parents lived together and were younger looking all the rooms in the house were dark I tried to turn on the lights but the light switch was melting and I fell to my knees crying and screaming. Then my father came to yell in my ears I heard his words ringing in my hears when I woke up. I had only been asleep about 2-2.5hours total. The last time I had bad things happen to me in the beginning of astral travel I only slept a few minutes short of 3hours, is there a connection between those things happening and the timing? What causes this and how can I prevent it? I don't astral travel on purpose it just happens while I sleep. I don't know what to do?
