Real Psychic Experiences

Obe For 3 Years Now


First, hi to everyone, second, I need some advice on something that has been happening to me for the past 3 years, or at least I have only been noticing for the past 3 years. To start I have always felt like I have had a gift of some sort, I have never been able to exactly pinpoint what exactly, but I suppose from a young age I have known I was different and I suppose I have always made excuses for it never really asking why! I have been to psychics all of which have said I have a gift, one saying I always know... Simple just know things, however I let my emotions get in the way, another said that when I'm ready he would like me to come back and do a reading for him... Which I thought was straight because I haven't the foggiest idea how.

Anyway getting to my experience, which started 3 years ago, I'd be asleep but I'm wide awake and I can see the room, which is strange because its pitch dark and my eyes are closed, but the room is gray and I can see everything, then I start floating from my body, my hands are always first... At this stage fear sets in and I have to force myself to wake up, I told my mother about this and she said it also happens to a younger cousin of mine. So this is now 3 years on and I have lost count of how many times its happened now, it comes at its own accord, strange thing is it seems to get more frequent just before something happens!

Ive never actually left my body because I always will it to stop, sometimes I say to myself ok let it happen and just see, but fear always gets the better of me and I have only ever let my arms and legs float. The last time it happened was my most frightening... It seems to get stronger and stronger each time, and its more like a pulling than a floating. My last experience seemed to go on for the whole night, I couldn't stop it all I could do was fight it, but then I heard voices... It seemed or felt evil, if that's the best way to describe it, and felt like it was jeering me in some way. I know it sounds strange and believe I know its hard to believe all this, I have been trying to ignore it for 3 years now and its time to face the music. I have done a bit of research on astral travel the past 2 days, but I have never been able to control when this happens, sometimes if I think it before I sleep it will come on. Can someone please explain all this... I might add when this first started happening, someone came to me with a message from my granddad saying I have no need to be scared they are only trying to protect me! I'm at a stage now I'm no longer scared and I'm ready to understand this. Your advice on this is very much appreciated and sorry for not keeping this short.

Adding onto what Sar said:

1. The voices you heard in your last projection was most likely sleep paralysis. Sleep paralysis is a "normal" thing that everyone has when they drift off to sleep - it's there to prevent you from acting out your dreams.

Sometimes, when you are more "awake" than your body is, you'll find that you cannot move, or that you see, feel, hear, or sense things happening around you - in most cases, this is your mind's way of trying to make sense of the paralysis (Kind of like when you go into a place where there is no light - You start seeing images).

Also, the best way to get rid of sleep paralysis is to "go with the flow"; Don't fight it, because the body will think you are trying to act out a dream. If you go with it, a few possible things may happen: You'll wake up, you'll fall asleep (and possibly forget about the experience), or you'll be able to have an OBE (the best case, in my opinion).

When this happens, it's sometimes called the "mind awake, body asleep" state.

2. The pulling and floating sensations are the start of having an OBE. Once again, it is sometimes called the "vibrational state" (depending on who you ask).

3. Like Sar said, there is pretty much nothing to fear on the astral planes, or when projecting. True, you may run into negative entities, but these entities are more of "bullies" than harmful - show them that you aren't afraid of them, and they will leave you alone.

I recommend that you check AnneV's site ( as she has a lot of information that you might find useful.

Also, you might want to look into these resources as well:

-Robert Monroe: All three books (first literature I read on OBEs & astral projection). Robert Monroe devoted much of his life to the study of OBEs.

-Robert Bruce: Astral Dynamics (He also has a site with useful articles by the same name).

-The Monroe Institute: There are a few articles dealing with using audio to induce a projection.

All the above resources should give you a starting place to learn about OBEs - One way to reduce fear is to learn about what you are trying to do.

Hope this helps some.

Its nothing too bad, its just your mind projecting an energy field that looks like you. Basically your mind is creating a ghost like version of yourself but you are aware of it and can control it. The only thing to worry about is creatures that consume energy, most of the time they will attack and try to consume the projection. Now you will not die but you will feel it if you don't wake up. They also could track your energy strings back to your body and attack there. If they do they are pretty hard to get rid off, my suggestion is to cover up your energy for awhile and eventually they will give up and go else where.
