Beverly M's Experience

Experience description:   

Just after waking, I was lying in bed in the morning. I began to meditate, since I felt my mind was clear. I heard an increasingly loud buzzing in my ears and the buzzing morphed into a vibration over my entire body. I felt myself separating from my body, I glaced down and saw that I was now had bright lemon yellow body. The dresser mirror was near but I was afraid to look into it. I boobed around a while near the ceiling, then my body knew to assume a sort of swimming position with arms at my side and I was able to "swim" toward the bedroom wall. I found, however, I wasn't able to penetrate the walls, they felt solid. The long window, however, was quite easy to penetrate, I felt the pressure of the glass as I passed through it.

I was anxious to prove to myself that this was a valid experience, so I looked for objects they I could check on in the physical state. Once out the window, I headed for a large tree at the side of the yard. I examined it closely in every detail, but saw nothing unusual. I spotted some broken pieces of a clay pot in the yard then glided back into my bedroom. I attempted to turn on the light switch.  Although I could move the switch to "on" and hear it, the light failed to respond. I then felt a pull at the bottom of my spine which I couldn't resist even though I wanted to stay out of my body. I went back into my body head first and had no after effects. I later went into the yard and the pieces of pot were there as seen in the OOB. I've found that OOBs, for me, require gathering a type of energy that can only be stored via meditation where certain breathing and shutting out of thoughts are essential. I've experienced OOBs where other people/animals and the past and future were involved, they have all been exhilarating and wonderful adventures, nothing negative has ever occurred so far.

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?           very alert and as conscious as in any daily physical state.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes     as stated: bright lemon yellow, very shiny spirit body, sort of semi-transparent.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            excitement, which I tried to quell so as not to interrupt the OOB.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           very loud buzzing (irritating) like a nest of hornets as the physical body and spiritual body separated.

Did you see a light?           No      

Did you meet or see any other beings?           No      

Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? Yes    

attempted to turn light switch, heard it "switch" but the light didn't come on.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes     the pot shards. In another OOB, I attempted to pull another person out of their body so they could share the experience with me, but that was definitely a mistake, I thought their spirit body would be difficult to pull out, but it was so easy I accidentally slammed their spirit body against the wall. Later, this person complained of a severe headache. Also, I know I broke some sort of "spiritual law" by doing this.

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         Yes     A couple of nights before 9/11 I had an experience where I saw 4 burned out suns, charred but with flames radiating from the edges of the disks-descending from the sky. I  knew that was the beginning of the end. I worked at ATT then and my manager called to tell me I must come to work regardless of the situation. I refused her, explaining I wanted to be with my family. She said people really needed communications now. But I still refused. When this event actually occurred, my manager did call, but to tell me not to come to work as ATT's whole communication complex was under the twin towers and had been completely wiped out. This experience was a dream though and not an OOB. I  related this dream several people before the event occurred.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes     yes, I feel now that there are other beings who really do care about what happens to us, they want to warn and guide us about important things because sometimes we loss sight of what is really important. In fact, there is a whole system set up in the spirit world and there are spiritual laws of nature that exist just as there physical laws of nature.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       certainly less orthodox in my religious attitude. As far as OOBs are concerned, I simply don't talk about it to people. But the out of body experience opened new realms of possibilities in my physical life, I have made radical changes which turned out for the better although it was tough in the beginning.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes     knowing that there is a whole other dimension out there, and it's not science fiction gives one a more objective attitude. I tend to see the whole picture now instead of details. I have more guts to accomplish my goals. Before, I always worried about what other people thought, now I don't.

Have you shared this experience with others?         No       What emotions did you experience following your experience?        excitement, a spirit of adventure, a yearning to know more.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      It bothered me that I was afraid to look at myself in the mirror in my out of body state, so I did experience fear, but for the most part, there was a unique feeling of being completely carefree and free.  The best part was the flying

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No      

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Yes     Your questions brought back that particular experience in much more detail to my mind. I feel I have provided every detail.
