Alexa C's Experience
was sleeping and dreaming one morning and then it became lucid and instantly I
thought of wanting to get out of my body. So I pushed on the bed with my elbows
so I can sit up. I wasn't certain if my first half of body is out because it
felt the same only lighter with mild tingling sensation. I waved my arms in
front of my face and nothing is there! I looked down and saw my physical left
arm and hand resting on my hips! I raised my legs and they're invisible too! I
can move my "spirit" limbs like physical ones but they are more light and
flexible. I was about to leave my physical body but I got stuck at the hip area
and struggled to get out. As I was struggling, I saw a transparent black figure
on my bedroom door watching and waiting for me. I stopped and laid back to
"hide" from it, then I realized it was not harmful so I resumed what I was
doing. All of the sudden I was being teleported to the side of the bed facing my
physical body. I saw the physical body sleeping on the back and itching its
nose... I was confused and curious so I bent over to take a close look at the
face. I got too close and the next thing was waking up.
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? No
At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? No
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? Well aware of what I am doing because I am having OBE on purpose out of curiosity. I was dreaming then it became lucid and I thought, why not try to have OBE because I heard lucid dreams promote it and it worked.
Was the experience dream like in any way? It was a mixture of reality and dream so it's half dream-like and half reality.
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes At first I was partly separated because the hip part was being stuck and I don't know why. Later I was fully separated but for only a few seconds before being sucked back to my physical body from being too close to it.
What emotions did you feel during the experience? Lack of fear, curiosity, content, aware
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? No, I am deaf
LOCATION DESCRIPTION: Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures? No
Did you see a light? No
Did you meet or see any other beings? Yes A grey human shaped ghost was standing by door was watching me and waiting for me to come so it can guide me. I just knew it was waiting for me without any form of communication and I don't know if it's benevolent or malevolent.
Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? Uncertain
When I was watching myself sleeping I saw my physical body itching its nose so I looked closer and closer at my physical face to make sure this isn't a dream but I got too close so I woke up. Every night I always checked to make sure my stone pendulum is hidden inside my pillowcase because it made me to feel safe at nights. That morning it was absent and I found it inside a box few feet away from bed. I don't know if I moved it during OBE.
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? No
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Uncertain I took out my contact lens every night and my vision is quite bad and very nearsighted. During the OBE I can see very clearly just like if I wore them. I was aware that my physical eyes were closed but still I can see. When I raised and waved my "spirit" invisible arms and legs to validate that I'm out of my body, they feel a bit lighter than physical but move and function like physical ones.
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? No
Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Uncertain I have hard time understanding what is astral plane and 4D but after this experience I completely understand what is it and how it works even though I haven't experience it fully.
Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes It was difficult to turn and move my head and free myself from being partially trapped to physical body. Arms and legs were easy to move. I have to imagine myself at different position to finally free myself.
Did you become aware of future events? No
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? Yes I knew that if I was too close to my physical body I would wake up but I proceed to look at myself too close. Bam, it happened and I woke up disappointed because I want more experience.

What was the best and worst part of your experience? Knowing how to get OBE and moved my "spirit" arms and legs while they are invisible are the best parts and waking up is the worst part.
