Experience description:   

There were multiple.... please go to my website http://www.astral-dreamscape.net to read about them in my online astral journal.  You have my permission to use any or all of the experiences for whatever research and publication you wish.

 Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience:  No

Was the experience difficult to express in words?  Yes

      What was it about the experience that makes it hard to communicate?  Imagine the awe of understanding and having proof that you can exist outside of your physical shell.  Any misconceptions about physical death disappear and with it fear.  Imagine the realization of what lies beyond this limited world, and the possibilities, the open doors, and the prospect of seeing again, everyone you loved who passed on.

At the time of the experience, was there an associated life threatening event?  No

 What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?  I was completely conscious (maybe even more so than right now typing this), during all of the experiences. I have never felt that 'awake' in the physical.

Was the experience dream like in any way?  there were no dreamlike aspects.  Everything was as it is/ should be.  There was no 'fog' nothing that did not make any sense or have any purpose.  It was like I was standing right there as if I was physically standing there, in fact while out of body I came to the realization that it was not a dream. I remember thinking that to myself while experiencing it.  It's hard to describe, but I just 'know' that they weren't dreams.

Did you experience a separation of consciousness from your body?  Yes

Describe your appearance or form apart from your body:  In my first 'willed' experience, I raised my arm while out of body to look at it, and it was translucent. Other than that I have never actually looked at my form while oob(out of body).  I have seen my physical form sleeping on the bed from an aspect out of body.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?  Elation, Awe, Joy

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?  upon separation, and re-entry I heard an intermittent, static like droning sound.

 Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure?  No

 Did you see a light?  No

 Did you meet or see any other beings?  Yes

      Describe:  I have seen physical people but since they could not see me, I could not interact.

   Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?  Yes

      Describe:  On one occasion I witnessed my Godmother baking cookies... I later verified it with her. 

 Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions?  No

      Describe:  I pretty much stayed close to the physical.

 Did you have any sense of altered space or time?  Yes

      Describe:  Time is distorted.  What seems like a long time out of body could have been very brief in physical terms.

 Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?  Yes

      Describe:  Ever since the very first experience, I feel like while awake (like right now), that I am very close to knowing something that is so profound that maybe I am not ready to know it, but it's there...  and while out of body I have this understanding like everything fits in, and when I wake up I forget that knowledge and it feels just out of my reach.

 Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?  No

 Did you become aware of future events?  No

 Were you involved in or aware of a decision to return to the body?  Yes

      Describe:  The first time I 'willfully' induced it, I frightened myself and 'willed' myself back.  It happened almost immediately.

 Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience?  Yes

      Describe:  Sometimes upon waking I see images played out while my eyes are closed like watching tv on the backs of my lids.  The images are always foggy, and dark, but I have been able to see rooms, people, movement, and I can describe some of them in great detail.  I never know where they are... or who the people are.  These images are not in my mind's eye, but like I am really viewing them with my eyes!

 Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?  Yes

      Describe:  Beliefs regarding spirituality

 Has the experience affected your relationships?  Daily life?  Religious practices etc.?  Career choices?  not really... I only have told several close people.  My mother told me of experiences she had that were similar.

 Have you shared this experience with others?  Yes

      Describe:  All of the people I have told have had similar experiences, I even had one tell me that he 'knew' I was an old soul all along.

 What emotions did you experience following your experience?  Same as during...  they never left.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?  Best - the realization, worst - that I could not explore further than I did (lack of control)

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?  I am still practicing and honing my abilities to this day

 Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?  Yes

      Describe:  I feel like I have to share my knowledge and help others to have the same realizations I have had

 Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?  Yes

      Describe:  the experiences are ongoing and for the most part spontaneous

 Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?  Yes
