My best friend and I were in Huntington beach on a weekend night, hanging out on main street. Having a wonderful time. The energy was great that night, and some how were were attracting really cool people that just all happened to be Christians. My friend and I are not religious at all but are still spiritual and believe in some sort of creator. Anyway, throughout the evening, we had met many amazing people, socialized, sang with a local street performer and helped him raise money, and just enjoyed ourselves. Later around 2 a.m. Or so, we drove home back to my aunts house and sat in the car tired after a long night. We started talking about what an amazing time we had and how ironic it was that we had attracted the kind of crowd we did, religious and Christian people. As we were talking, the conversation gets deeper and more religious, just talking about our own theories and beliefs. By this time, we are very tired, and sort of vulnerable in a way.
My friend then looks up and into my eyes and I look into hers, and out of no where, I feel almost like a huge rush of adrenaline and all of a sudden my spirit slowly rose up out of my body. I felt like hers was to and she was some how entering my soul and bringing me up with her. (Now I've had a couple out of body experiences before, but those time I was smoking pot and high as a kite so hey were easily influenced. This time I was completely sober, as well as my best friend.) When this was happening, I felt a lot of fear because I was definitely out of my comfort zone because I was not in control at all. I couldn't look away from her eyes, like I was in a trance or something, and she wouldn't break the eye contact either, I really don't know how long it was because when I was out of my body with her it was as if time didn't exist. Our spirits were just... There. Her eyes felt like black holes, almost as if she was sucking my spirit out of my body, but not intentionally or in an evil way at all. It just sort of happened. During this time, I couldn't speak, but eventually, somehow I was able to connect to my mouth and scream her name multiple times. I yelled at her to stop and finally she looked away and I fell back into my body as she did too. Immediately I start freaking out and asking what the hell was that and why did you do that to me. She said she didn't know and she couldn't control it. By then I was really spooked and was just like let's go inside and go to bed.
We get out and go into my aunt's house, but I couldn't help but question my friend about what just happened in the car. As were talking, I'm kind of scared to make eye contact again, but I did anyway and each time I felt the same feeling I did in the car right before I left my body. It is almost like a really quick rush of adrenaline, but it's not. I really don't know what it was, but it made me breathe very heavily and I felt overwhelmed in a way. Again, I yelled her name and told her to stop it. She said that she wasn't doing it this time (doing it as in sucking me in, which is what we call it) and she doesn't know why she can't control it. Eventually, both of us just went to sleep. We talk about the experience now and then, and were both very curious as to what happened that night. This isn't the first time something freaky happened with her too.
Things with my best friend has happened prior to this event. Little things, but still very strange. One example: I'm a fairly heavy sleeper. Never really wake up in the middle of the night once I'm asleep. One time in high school, I had woken up in the middle of the night at about 3:04 and I looked at my clock and thought, hm.. That's strange. ( because I never wake up in the middle of the night, and when I did, I was not tired or anything) And simply went right back to sleep. The next morning, the same best friend met me at school and asked if I had woken up around 3 a.m. Last night. I thought for a minute, and then asked, how do you know I woke up at 3a.m.? She said that she just gets weird kind of visions sometimes and sees things. She doesn't tell anyone though because she knows that they'll think she's crazy. But she knows that I believe her because of the incidents that happen with me.
