Real Psychic Experiences

Sleep Paralysis And Obe's, Getting Over My Fears


I'm 19 and I started developing my psychic abilities when I was 17. In the course of this time I've had some experiences and what not, but my question now concerns my experiences with sleep paralysis and potential out of body experiences. In the course of these 2 years I have had sleep paralysis numerous times. At first I was scared because I thought it meant a negative spirit was attacking me and somehow froze my body. The first few times my sleep paralysis was accompanied by either the feeling of somebody or something standing next to me or creepy, almost demonic sounds in my ear. Because of this I had willed myself back into my body before I could fully exit it.

It wasn't until one of my more recent experiences I realized that this was the sign of the beginning of an out of body experience. The episode that led me to this realization began with me laying down in my bed in a distressed state, I think I may have asked for help. I started getting visions first of strange creatures and people that I didn't know talking to me. I wasn't asleep but I wasn't awake either. I was aware of what was happening but I couldn't control it, all these visions were coming to me in stream and I couldn't control them. I was interacting with people in a hallway, then with two people by a computer, one was a boy which I felt I knew for a very long time and that's when the paralysis started happening. I heard music in my ear and I felt myself raising from my body. Confused, I forced myself back in. With the help of a friend I realized all this time these experiences have been the beginning of an OBE.

Last night I had a similar and very bizarre experience. It began with visions of creatures and spirits again, although more creepy then the last time. I was awake and heard my mom say something to me (I was in the floor on her room, I sleep there sometimes because I get scared when I'm not asleep past 2 a.m) although I am sure she wasn't actually speaking, at the same time I heard her snoring. In an attempt to ignore her because I didn't want to go in my bed, I began to leave my body. It happened much easier then before and happened due to my will, but I went back in out of fear. I wasn't asleep but I feel I wasn't on this plane either. I was hearing everything, like people outside and my mom snoring, but at the same time I felt like I couldn't snap out of this trance and there were things happening that couldn't have been happening within this plane.

So anyway my question is, most of my sleep paralysis experiences have happened accompanied with strange and scary phenomena. With those of you who are experienced with astral projection, should I be hesitant with leaving my body? I'm afraid of negative beings following me back or somehow getting involved with me due to me leaving my body. If this is a real threat, is it not a big deal? I know that I have the power to protect myself, but when these things are happening to me I feel out of control most of the time. I guess I want to know what is like to fully leave your body and all the fun things you can do, because if there are threats I bet the awesomeness of astral traveling totally outweigh them. I don't want to be afraid anymore.

thank you so much light20, just recently I have been living without fear because I know I have spirits protecting me, and they won't hesitate to help me if I asked. Next time I have sleep paralysis I'm going to go for astral projection for sure 😊

you always have protective spirits around you, unseen even while out of body, so fear is unjustified. You already projected out of body, which means a part of your soul went there. You never leave the body totally, as you can know by seeing or touching the silver cord:) there is nothing to fear.:) before starting, you can say a prayer. Even while doing the projection, you can always pray to God to give you strength to serve the planet by doing miracles via bilocation like thousands of saints did. The infinite wisdom of God will take you where you are needed to bring divine love. ❤ ❤ ❤

Based on my experiences, your astral body requires a whole new level of thinking to control it.

The astral body itself mostly moves by thoughts. So, for example, instead of moving your feet in the direction you want to go, you would think something like "I want to move in this direction", and the body would move there.

When you first start out, there is a high chance you will "miss your destination" (think about a puck on an air-hockey table that has been gently nudged in a direction). Sometimes, this may even cause you to end up in a different place entirely.

Also, in the Monroe books (as well as Robert Bruce to some extent), they mention that there is a "homing beacon" method of getting around. Basically, all you have to do is think of a location, person, or thing, and you will be instantly transported there. This is also an easy method to get back into the physical body.

I've heard about time travel as well, although I haven't experienced it yet, mostly because when I am able to get out of my physical body, I usually forget why I intended to have the projection in the first place.

wow, thanks fossilera and ashtonnb. I've read about the akashic records and I've always wanted to go there. I'm also excited about exploring time travel via astral projection, which I read is possible to an extent. Once you're out of your body, is your astral body easy to control?

Hi kittens_forever,

In answer to some of your questions:

1. You should not be hesitant with trying to leave your body. Nothing you experience can harm you, even the "nasty entities".

All the creepy phenomenon you are encountering before leaving the physical body are called hallucinations. Or, if you want the more common term (in terms of an astral projection/OBE that is), the phenomenon is called "vibrations".

2. The negative entities (called NEGs if you read anything by Robert Bruce) are more of bullies than an actual threat on the astral. Sometimes, you actually create these yourself, because on the astral your thoughts can literally become real. The only thing they can do is "scare" you back into your body.

To avoid them, or get rid of them, you can try the following:

-Ignore them: just like a bully, if you ignore them and show them no fear, they will eventually "give up" on you, and move elsewhere.

-Show them love of some kind: One of the authors on a book about astral projection brought this up. The theory is that if these beings bother you, you should try sending it love, or in the extreme case, go and give it a hug. Negative entities cannot stand positive emotions, and so, this would discourage them from bothering you more.

Based on my experiences, I would say that they (the NEGs) are not a threat.

3. As for the fun things you can do, the mind's the limit. Some people are content to just being able to get out and visit a place that they've never been before, while others go and visit the astral planes.

Others attempt to project into the "real time zone" (where you can see what is going on currently - like you would when in your physical body), and some of the more adventurous types try to visit the Akashic Records (reputed to be a place where information about you and all of your lives is stored - like a library).

Finally, it is also possible to meet people (both alive and those that passed on) on the astral. However, usually the person you meet will pass off the encounter as a dream when they wake up (unless they also know about astral projection).

4. Here's a list of reading material that may further help you out, or be worth looking into:

-Robert Monroe (All three of his books are worth reading).

-Robert Bruce ("Astral Dynamics", "NEW Energy Ways", and "90 Day Guide to Out-of-Body Experiences" are all good reads).

Websites: (This one is AnneV's site, with a lot of information on the topics). This one contains a lot of topics pertaining to astral projection, as well as questions by users.

Other Topics (for searching, etc.):
-The Monroe Institute: Originally Founded by Robert Monroe (for studying OBEs), this is an institute that still focuses on astral projections.

-Lucidology 101: This is a youtube series that talks about having OBE's, and their site also contains PDF's that act as a companion to the videos.

As a final note, one of the best ways to fight fear is to "know what you're up against".

thanks so much for posting this! I'v been having sleep paralysis for maybe over a year now... And I also heard that it is the begining of an OBE.
I can't really control when mine happens, but around the time when it first started happening, it would scare the heck out of me! I do the same thing you do... When it happenes, I also try to make it stop because I get scared of what will happen. I hope you get some good advice on your post! I think it would be helpful for both of us 😁
