Real Psychic Experiences

Obe And A Disconnected Feeling


This happened when I was between 10 and 11 (and since I've told this story to other people and they always ask, I will confirm now that I was NOT on drugs, I was a little kid). I believe what happened to me was an out of body experience.

I had spent the night at my friend's house, it was small with an L shaped stairwell by the front door (it had about 3 steps until you reached the landing and then the stairs continued to the right all the way up to the 2nd floor).

We woke up that morning and decided to go down stairs to watch TV (I felt kind of disconnected at the time), I sat in the rocking chair that was at the bottom of the stairs (you could see up to the landing from there).

As I was sitting there, I was suddenly LOOKING at myself sitting in the rocking chair; the position I was in to be looking at myself was up high, near the corner of the ceiling on the landing of the stairs.

I remember thinking "WHAT?" and then I was back to myself in probably less than a second. It felt like the wind was knocked out of me when I came back and I just sat there kind of gasping for a minute trying to wrap my child's mind around what just happened to me.

When I was about 17, I bought a book about psychic things and realized what had happened to me was an OBE.

The weird thing is, once it happened, the disconnected feeling I had that morning continued for a couple of years afterward but stronger and randomly. I'd like to explain it and see if anyone else has experienced what I'm talking about because it was a HUGE issue for me when I was younger, it really scared me and I never told anybody.

My parents were about to divorce etc. And maybe the disconnection was a way for me to try and block it out?

I'm not sure, but I felt as though I was literally being pulled away from my physical body ALL THE TIME. I would get a really, really tired feeling (even though I wasn't) and then a pulling sensation like my soul was trying to float up and out. I would try SO hard to fight it to 'stay' in my body; the worst one happened while I was in the middle of playing Mario cart racing with my friends in the middle of the afternoon, I felt as though a vacuum were on me sucking me away from everything, the TV screen got weird, I couldn't see it clearly, I started to black out I couldn't concentrate on anything, almost like I was falling into a DEEP sleep against my will, and then the pulling sensation; it was so strong I honestly thought I was going to be sucked from my body, die and never come back. I had to quit the game to go outside. I think either, I was going through a rough patch in life mentally, or I was very close to having OBE's against my will because it was always same exact feeling as the first time it happened. Luckily, the feeling hasn't happened for a couple years. After I bought that book on psychic experiences though, I tried to re-create my OBE with no luck, but I think I did actually manage to do something weird. I won't explain that though because I'll sound insane 

Interesting story Mandy!

Your experience sounds a lot like an OBE, and I agree with Rook's diagnosis.

Unlike you, I've never had an OBE while I was awake, although they have happened a lot in a dream state. People say that you cannot die in dreams, but I once had a dream during which I was killed, and then my spirit separated from my body; I had an awful fright when I looked down and saw myself dead! I woke up feeling as I did in the dream: sick and disoriented. Anyway, just sharing my own experience with you guys ^^

Do you have OBEs in a dream state as well? I'd be surprised if you didn't;)

that's the thing about all this psychic & Angels & demons stuff,

It all could be chalked up to a coincidence.

It all could be explined away if you tried really hard.

But it still is what it is.

I think you touched his back with your mind!.

And about my expierences, the best place to read them is on my Shadow Theft page,

I post my expierences there in the comments (this site dosent evcept most of my expierences for some reason.)

Hi guys! Thanks so much for your feedback! I found out from my mom my grandma used to be into this kind of thing and astral projection... So maybe it runs in the family lol!

RookDygin, that explains a lot for me! Thanks for the insite:)

Spiritlife, I definetly don't want help on how to recreate my expirience lol, once was enough for me I think, I'm just afraid I won't be able to get back in if it happened again.

ONIpsychic, isn't it crazy!? How strange it must have been for you to be able to watch yourself for a short time!

Marcusj0015, I would love to hear about your other expiriences too if they aren't to unpleasant for you to recall? I'm sorry you cut your finger: (that must've been weird for being so little!

OK, so here's what happened when I did that weird thing, it was KIND of like an OBE, but not in the sense I was out of my body, more like... My arm was? I was reading that book (which I can't find anywhere these days sadly, it was written in the 60's so it's unlikely I'll find it again: () anyway the book was describing cases where people have lost a limb but can still feel/sense it... And others can psycically stretch their limbs. What I did was meditate hardcore to clear my mind to try and extend my limbs psychically, then I concentrated on the back of my fiance, he was quite a few feet in front of me playing a video game, I concentrated on "stretching" my invisible arm out and touching his back. I sat there invisioning the touch and in my minds eye, I was reaching out to do it and I'm pretty sure he felt it because at the exact moment I "touched" his back his hand flew to his back and he tried to brush something off his shirt. I presume it was "me" since the spot he brushed was where I touched him.
Could be a conincidence, which is why I don't want to sound like a nut lol, but I don't think it was. Sorry it's so long!

my first obe (that I remember.) I was sitting at my kitchen table at two in the morning (I was about 5-6 years old, and I was peeling an apple.) and I don't know what hhappend, but I feel that I should look at the top left corner of the room (from where I was sitting.) and I looked, and I'm not sure if I seen anything or not.

But then I started sseeing myself from the corner, like seeing through SOMEONE ELSE's eyes,

And I was still looking at the corner looking myself right in the face from the corner of the room.

And I cut my finger, as I was peeling the apple. (don't ask why I didn't stop peeling, I was young and stupid.) and then I was back in my own body and I went to go get my mom because of my finger bleeding.

Sometimes I'm awake, other times I'm in a different realm, I wsa once in hell and the other time I was in a white room in heaven.

What you experienced was more than likly a series of spontaneous OBE's that happened due to the stress you were feeling at this time in your life.

Out-of-the-body experiences can occur to anyone in almost any circumstances. They are most frequent during sleep, during unconsciousness following anesthesia or a bang on the head, and during stress. (Stress being the 'reason' for you.)

Your description is the classic description of what one 'feels/see's' when experiencing an OBE. Right down to the feeling you had when you returned to your body.

As you put it, this was (is) a way your mind (spirit) is trying to deal with stress. Please share with us what happened when you attempted to re-create your experience... Trust me around here you will not sound insane because around here all the best people are insane. 😆

I've had that same 'seeing myself from the ceiling' thing, but only once, when I was younger. I was in bed, waiting to fall asleep (or maybe I was?). Then I suddenly realized I was looking down at myself. It was an odd sensation, but I didn't think about it or bring any reasoning into it. I had just lain there and watch myself for a short while, then entered the usual blackness of my dream world.

Do you want help on how to recreate an OBE?

Explain anything you want, even if it sounds "insane". 😊
