The first time I had an OBE, It I was with a friend in his garage. He was on his
computer making audio beats to rap to, I was sitting in an office chair bored
and spacing out. Then something in front of me obstructed my view and caught my
attention. It was brief as I watched it fall away from me. While it was falling
forward, I realized what it was and thought to myself 'That's my head'. As soon
as a had that thought I *awoke leaning forward(*this is hard to describe because
there was no loss of consciousness, I just went from what felt like I was seated
to leaning forward immediately). When I went back to my body I took a big breath
in and snapped upright(It didn't feel like I wasn't breathing just that's what
happened). The moment was quick. I told my friend what had happened right in
front of him(more to the side of him) not sure whether he believed me but I knew
what happened, especially because there was a show called 'So Weird' where
something similar happened.
The second time I had an OBE was the one that changed my beliefs and my life. I
had just gotten off the city bus from school and I was walking up the dirt path
up hill home like I usually did. As I'm walking I suddenly stop full stride up
the hill and what was a really bright day
had a little tint to it. I don't remember trying to move forward or me
doing any tugging at my right leg but I couldn't move. So I look behind me and I
see myself just standing there, some what straight, a little slouched, arms at
my side and I have the thought 'that's me' and just as last time big breath and
all I am back in the body that was just standing behind me. Now this time it was
longer, I was moving, and a lot of feelings were involved. Besides the tint I
didn't see much else different but I felt a lot. I felt transparent but yet
fully clothed, it felt like I was still wearing what I had on. I didn't get a
good look because everything happened fast but I felt like my astro-projected
right foot was still attached to my physical right foot, so I didn't fully leave
my body. Which has left me with more to wonder, but the whole experience just
opened a whole new idea on life and who we are as human beings for me. For one
the whole feeling clothed let me know that we are the way we perceive ourselves.
There's no need for clothes on the astral plane but yet I had mine when it was
clearly on my physical body. What I think that was is when I am wearing clothes
I feel less exposed. Since I wasn't thinking about leaving my body I took those
feelings of not being exposed with me for the sole purpose of having that false
sense of security.
had a lot of small experiences with the paranormal since I was a kid but this
was the most profound. I later found out the possible cause for these experience
when a me and a friend were discussing the subject and he told me about how
people into yoga and meditation have had OBE. This is significant to me because
I was given Saturday school every week and in Sat. school a volunteer came and
taught yoga. We were given the option to work or do yoga. It was a simple choice
for me and I got good at meditating which may have lead to my OBE. OBE was a
wonderful experience for and would love to have more but I don't have the time
or the discipline for meditation, but maybe one day. I hope this helps, more
knowledge on this subject would really benefit man kind and mother earth.
Any associated medications or
substances with the potential to affect the experience?
Was the kind of experience
difficult to express in words?
At the time of this experience, was
there an associated life threatening event?
What was your level of
consciousness and alertness during the experience?
I was fully conscious, as for alert,
probably not which is why I probably had the experience.
Was the experience dream like in any way?
No it wasn't dream like. Both
times I didn't notice I had left my body.
Did you experience a separation of
your consciousness from your body?
Uncertain I didn't feel my consciousness
slip away, just a feeling of things being slightly different.
What emotions did you feel during
I felt neutral,
that would be the best way to describe it, but there was some shock when I
recognized myself, a little confusion because there were thing I didn't know
were happening, like seeing my head fall away from me , and not being able to
Did you hear any unusual sounds or
I didn't hear
any unusual sounds, or I wasn't really paying attention.
Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar
religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or
Yes The second time there was. The bus
stop was right at Mission San Luis Rey and my experience was after I passed an
old cemetery off the 76 but I don't think it had a significance.
Did you see a light?
Did you meet or see any other
Did you experiment while out of the
body or in another, altered state?
Did you observe or hear anything
regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?
Did you notice how your 5 senses
were working, and if so, how were they different?
Did you have any sense of altered
space or time?
Yes The second OBE my surroundings
just got a slightly darker tint suddenly and it went away when I returned to my
Did you have a sense of knowing,
special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?
Did you reach a boundary or
limiting physical structure?
Yes The second OBE I couldn't move
forward. I guess I couldn't fully detach from myself.
Did you become aware of future
Were you involved in or aware of a
decision regarding your return to the body?
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts
following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?
Did you have any changes of
attitudes or beliefs following the experience?
Yes It gave me more to think about,
belief wise, and opened me up to more possibilities, and how I am and we human
beings are capable of more.
How has the experience affected
your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?
It has not affected my career
choice but as for relationships I try to share what I think and inspire the
people around me to not be limited. Daily life I can't help but want more, to
have control over what I experience. Religious experience I am a little more
solid in my beliefs.
Has your life changed specifically
as a result of your experience?
Yes My life has changed but just in
the way I think, there's no longer a definitive line of what's real and what's
fake. I believed in ghost, aliens, and (for lack of a better word)witchcraft but
some of it is in no longer a belief, ghost do exist, I am capable of doing more,
us humans can do what is thought as impossible. I don't think of myself as
special because this happened, I think we are all able to reach further in our
world and my OBE has me all ways looking for a sign of that pushing forward so I
can make it a part of my life.
Have you shared this experience
Yes I hear a lot of similar
experiences, people find it interesting but I don't try to influence them but
give perspective on who I am and what is possible
What emotions did you experience
following your experience?
What was the best and worst part of
The worst is
how was the length and not fully leaving my body, the best is the knowledge,
hearing about these things, yes I can believe it but it doesn't beat knowing
that it happens.
Is there anything else you would
like to add concerning the experience?
In both cases I
didn't have a worded thought in my head or in until I saw and recognized myself.
Following the experience, have you
had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced
any part of the experience?
Did the questions asked and
information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your
Uncertain I hope I described it pretty
accurately but not sure how specific I needed to be plus it was while ago so
maybe details might of been forgotten but the memory stays pretty fresh in my
head. I will never forget it.
Please offer any suggestions you
may have to improve this questionnaire.
I would say
maybe some questions on thoughts and actions. When I was in my astral form all
my thoughts were on action, and when I finally had worded thought my experience
was ended, maybe some people talked, or how I say worded thought, where its like
I'm talking to myself in my head, but when I turned around I didn't think 'turn
around' I just thought I should. So yeah maybe something like that.
