Carson J's Experience

Experience description:   

I have been feeling pretty lonely lately, and my friend had been ignoring me frequently, so I confronted her about it over text message. tensions started to escalate and I became rather furious and full of anger, and then my head started to throb. I have had similar pains to it, I frequently have migraines. and then I just lost control. I felt like I was witnessing my body act out abnormal actions, such as writing a poem about life. I texted my friend, and I was using abnormally large words, some words I still have no clue what they mean. it lasted for about 45 minutes, until I started to have another throbbing head pain. and then I just kind of came back to my body. there's no way to explain it really. I was very sweaty, and I had tears in my eyes. whatever I experienced, it was something I hope to never experience again

NDERF: Requested poem that he wrote, and received it with permission to post on the website:


What is this irreversible time lapse that we call life?

What do the countless endeavors lead to in the end?

What happens after all necessary body functions come to a dismal end? 

Will we be engulfed into the pits of darkness? 

Or rather would a new sense of relevance shed light on a sought after path of happiness? 

For it is life that we may live and learn 

But it is in death, that we emerge through a process of anointing, to take part in the true destiny given to us as we developed in our mothers womb 

The one question that will still remain is which path will you take? 

Will you plummet to a realm of never ending darkness? 

Or will you rise up, and take part in the utopia in which there is no resentment or agony nor regret 

For this is the meaning of life, the process of realization for what comes next

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain I could feel everything, but had no control over my body.

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 could only feel physically, like the texture of my bed and pillow

Was the experience dream like in any way? not at all

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes my face showed zero emotion, it was like I was looking at an empty canvas

What emotions did you feel during the experience? I felt content, and at ease. I also had a sense of confusion

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? I could hear what sounded like someone slamming a car door off in the distance, it could have been some kind of drum or possibly explosion, its hard to describe

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? Uncertain I felt darkness, and nothing but darkness. it was like I was in some kind of hole, with nothing around me

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

I don't know what you would consider writing a full poem to be. whenever I read it I still have this sense of confusion

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 I felt like my mind was stopped in time, while my body was still in time

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? Yes I can remember these words that were way to big for a junior in high school to know

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? No

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?
Yes my vocabulary and choice of words has expanded to a point that I can't fathom

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices? I just had the experience so it hasn't affected anything yet to my knowledge

Have you shared this experience with others? Yes I told my mom, but she was half asleep and had no idea what I was discussing with her

What emotions did you experience following your experience? I felt closure, and a sense of purpose

What was the best and worst part of your experience? the best part was this sense of never ending knowledge that I was able to obtain, but I hate recollecting the feeling of not being in control of my body functions
