Angel E's Experience
I was lying on my back in the middle of my bed, eyes closed, and all of a sudden I felt my body or my spirit (however u wanna call it) lift very slowly from my "original" body that was still lying on my bed. It's strange because it's as if I could see both bodies on top of one another & I could see between them also. The top body or spirit was more see through. I know my eyes are still closed right now - The way I'm seeing is different because I can see from different angles at the same time. Anyway, I can feel strong, very strong energy between the 2 bodies...trying to separate. It's like colored lights of energies that I c between the two bodies moving. It feels like I don't want to let go... It's having a hard time separating from my body. I can see the different energies between the two bodies.
While this is going on, my body is feeling very very stiff - I can feel it tensing up - mostly my fingers, hands & arms... All of a sudden It's like my eyes are open & looking in the left corner of my room (It's very dark) and a square appears with black & white pictures, scrolling down continuously & in a very fast motion. Like a old movie, but they're a bunch of pictures, playing in a fast forward motion. Unfortunately I couldn't see what the pictures were. I know when you're afraid of confronting something or if you're not ready to see something, you won't & that's why I think I couldn't see the pictures clearly. These kinds of experiences have happened to me before & in my dreams also.
To continue... While I was trying to look at the pictures, I started to feel very afraid & I kept on telling myself, you have to open your eyes, you have to open your eyes to make it stop, to make it go away... I could feel my body still very tense, my eyes trying to fight against this energy to make my eyes open but I could feel pressure/energy trying to force my eye lids to stay shut. I fought very very hard & was able to slightly open my eyes - I could c lines...It's hard to explain - I know it was energy & the pictures weren't there anymore, it's like they had faded away, then ooops...my eyes would shut again & the pictures would come up again & start playing in that square like before. Finally I found enough energy to fight this experience, that at the time was frightening me, to open my eyes for good & every thing just stopped.
I was back lying on my bed, on my back, but my fingers, hands & arms were still stiff/tense & a little tingly. I looked in that corner of my room, it was still dark, but there was nothing there. I then slowly told my body to relax & fell asleep.
As I woke up, I remembered the experience but no longer felt scared. It's more a feeling of curiosity than anything else. This wasn't my first OBE and I know it won't be my last.

What emotions did you feel during the experience? Scared/Afraid/Tense/Stiff/Anxiety maybe
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? No
LOCATION DESCRIPTION: Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations familiar from religious teachings ie. Heaven, Hell, Hades, etc.? Did you encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures? Yes, It was in my bedroom & everything was the same as it always is.
Did you see a light? Yes. Yes, but it wasn't "a" light, it was more like a bunch of colored "energies/light" twirling around between the two bodies & right in front of my eyes when I was trying to open them. They were more like beams/lines of colored lights - If that makes any sense... It's hard to explain.
Did you meet or see any other beings? No.
Did you experiment while out body or in another altered state? For example did you attempt to visit a family member or friend at another location? Did you eyewitness an event that you would not have known about had you not been out of body? Did you attempt to move a physical object while in the astral/etheric universe? No
If yes or uncertain, what did you do and what was the result of the experimentation? Not this time, but in another OBE I believe I became somewhat aware of this & started to "float" every where in my bedroom: over my bed, turning my body sides, on the side of my bed, etc. (I remember this as a pleasant experience - I was enjoying myself) & when I heard someone coming up the stairs, it's as if my body fell down, fast & hard, right back in the position I originally was in my bed. These OBEs have only happened in the bedroom.
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? No. No, because I couldn't see what the pictures were about.
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Uncertain. It's like they weren't working properly. I could see but in a different & unusual way. I couldn't really move my body. I didn't smell or taste anything, nor was there anything to smell or taste anyway. I could hear myself talking to myself, telling me to open my eyes.
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? Yes. Yes, I kept on telling myself to open my eyes & knew that this would all stop when I did. My emotions were of being scared and a little bit anxious. I just wanted to open my eyes.
How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices etc.? Career choices? It's just made me more curious, that's all. More curious in the sense that I'd like to know more on OBE & this time to know what I was so afraid of seeing... I believe it was pictures from my past life if not even past lives. Who knows, but I do believe these were pictures from my past. I believe the universe is trying to show me, tell me or help me remember something. I believe my severe chest pains are related to something I have lived in the past but can not or chose not to remember.
