Experience description:   

my best friend died in 1993. i was devastated. i willed him desperately to let me know if he was really gone. three months later i began to experience vibrations through my body. paralyzation. sitting up. feeling. traveling through blackness until i ended up somewhere else. i was terrified at first. i discovered i could shut it off by sitting up when the rushes started  but in the end because this problem wouldn't go away and persisted every time i closed my eyes. i had no choice but to research this bedtime nightmare. i know a lot about astral travel now. at first i didn't know what was happening to me. i have seen my dead friend a few times since i lost my fear and he told me he switched me on
