Carlos G's Experience 3070

Experience description:   

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.

I have 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?     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?           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 the experience?            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 move.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           I didn't hear any unusual sounds, or I wasn't really paying attention.

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?    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?           No      

Did you meet or see any other beings?           No      

Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? No      

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?          No            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 body.

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?    No           

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 events?       No      

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       No       Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         No      

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 with others?         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?  Curiosity, excitement, solidarity.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      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?         Uncertain     

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?                     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.
