Chad A's Experience

Experience description:   

April 20, 2008

Early Morning

I had a ton of OBE’s just prior.  I was in Sloan’s bed.  Rolling out of my body probably a dozen times.  I got sick of roaming around the house… 

I was in the in-between state.  Fully awake, yet sleeping.  It was the fullest attainment of this state I have ever been in.  I felt my self separated, felt two bodies, one physical and heavy… asleep.  And one light and ethereal… fully awake.  I rolled with the light body out bed, out of my physical body. 

            Perfect, class book execution of OBE.  I wandered the house.  Then, a thought came to me; to go look at myself sleeping in bed.  I entered the bedroom and focused my vision on the bed I was sleeping in.  It was an area both hazy and gray.  I felt a repulsion.  I had an extremely difficult time forcing my astral vision on my sleeping body.  I found that I could not do it no matter what I tried.  Interesting.  Why was that?  I have always heard that it is very common for OBE’rs to view their sleeping body.  But I was not allowed to…

            I pulled myself back into my body.  In and out I practiced and explored the house until I got bored.  I transitioned straight into a lucid dream as I released control of trying more OBEs.

            I was in a grass covered, large ditch next to a paved road.  I felt that since I was so extremely aware of my sleeping body that I might easily fall out of lucidity or more likely, just wake up.  I was balanced perfectly in the bi-state.  I rushed in order to get something going knowing that if I transited to the next state I would not risk waking up or losing lucidity.  I said the first thing that came to mind.  “I want to see Jesus.  I want to feel him, the light, the love.”

            Immediately two people appeared on the level grass above me where I was down in the broad, deep ditch.  The first to contact me was a female, plainly clothed.  She came directly to me and I knew she came in response to my seeking.  I asked her if she was my dream guide and she looked at me with bemusement, subtlety letting me know that she had no idea of what I was talking about.  “Are you a guide?”  She gave me the same look.  We exchanged words, but they were casual in nature and not worth remembrance.

            He walked up behind her.  They instructed me to lie down and put my head in her lap.  I stared up at both of them, complete comfort caused by the innate knowing that they were absolutely benevolent in nature.   He then bent over me, his face just inches above mine, and blew smoke from his mouth.  I inhaled deeply.

            Everything went dark.  Incredible sensation.  I was dizzy, swirling in a deep, almost black darkness.  Patterns (symbols?) swirled around me, enveloped me.  That euphoric rush of vast movement.  Of further soul displacement.  The feeling is nearly indescribable for those who have never felt this mode of spirit travel.  Normally I would feel vibrations accompanying the movement, along with the roaring of some type of wind.  This time I didn’t.  It was comfortably disorienting and smooth.  I think I have been reaching further states of growth and these temporal transitions are much smoother now.  I am becoming much more attuned to these varying states of being.

            Suddenly I am sitting before them, on the grass.  We are under an overhead that gently lets light in, with all sides open to the air.  I have an impression that the overhang is more like a square sun umbrella, but I also sense it being made from wood.

            They gave themselves the names Lisa and Alan.  Alan was of a very excitable personality and Lisa was more reserved.

            I was Mr. Curiosity and wouldn’t stop asking them questions.  I remember discussing reality and how I can prove if this is real.  They thought I meant so that I can prove this is real to other people, when what I meant was confirmation to myself.  They got a kick out of that.  I was there, wholly conscious, fully interacting with them, and yet I was questioning if the experience was real.  I smiled because I knew it was real, but told them that it is hard to comprehend these types of experiences as ‘real’ when I return to my body.  The experiences become watered down in the 3rd dimension and can be difficult to fully remember.

            That’s when we talked of the Forgetting.  I told them that I couldn’t remember anything beyond my 3rd dimension life on Earth.  They were dumbstruck and wondered how that could possibly be, living a life without the knowingness of your eternal self.  I became extremely emotional, nearly sobbing, telling them that I want to remember so badly, that I cannot wait until the veil is gone and I can be my true self again. 

            Alan said that he can tell me that once upon a time he and I had a past life where we had met.  I asked him if he could tell me the names of our past life persons and he was thinking about whether he should or not.  He looked over at Lisa and she said that he had better not.  I pestered them but they playfully declined.

            I could hear Sammy barking (Sammy is one of our dogs) and could also hear our two daughters playing somewhere in the house.  I was getting worried that if the noise distraction continued I would be pulled back into my body and ‘wake up’.  So I told them to hurry and give me something that I could use to confirm the experience.  Alan asked me why we needed to hurry and I told him that the dog is barking and the girls are playing and I think the distraction might wake me up at any moment.  He was confused.  He said, “Wait a minute, you are sleeping in bed right now?”

            “Yes, my other body is in 3rd dimension earth right now sleeping.”

He thought it was absolutely amazing that I was lying in bed ‘asleep’ somewhere else.  His exact words, “WOW!” shaking his head as if in disbelief.  He was extremely excited and said to Lisa, “Can you believe this?!  How can someone accomplish that?  He (referring to me) is 9 planets/planes (?) out!”  Both of them thought that that was incredible, but I had no clue what they were talking about.

We talked a lot, much of it I don’t fully remember.  Lisa had given all three of us a crushed leaf/tiny stick with branches (?).  They started to eat theirs.  I asked them what it was and they told me to eat it.  I did.  It was bland and a little pungent.  They thought it tasted horrible, but it was not too bad for me as it was so bland.  I remember the leaf/stick having come from a plant that has large pee ponds on it.  The pee pod was large and very dry.  We cracked open and ate the dime-sized pees.  Somehow I know that the leaf/stick was eaten so that it would do something to us, but they never told me what.  The peas were just to munch on.

I again asked them what the plant was.  Alan pronounced it 3 or 4 times until I could get it right.  Phonetically, it is LEGWOW.

Innately, we all knew that it was time for me to head back.  I asked them if I was going to see them again and they mysteriously replied with a, “Possibly.  Who knows?” 

I put my head back into Lisa’s lap.  They told me to make a sound.  “Like this,” Lisa said.  It was a low garbled hum.  I followed her and hummed along.  Immediately as I started to hum Alan bent over me and blew smoke in my face.

Near darkness.  Vast movement.  Strange swirling symbols.  I was back in bed.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No      

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain      The visuals and interactions is fairly easy to describe, but the emotional and spiritual state is difficult to describe.

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?           Extremely high level of consciousness.  Aware of multiple states of consciousness... many layers of consciousness overlapping each other.

Was the experience dream like in any way?   Yes, though that is only because it 'can't' happen in this reality we think of as the physical.  Otherwise, it felt more real than this physical reality.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes     I know that I was in an energetic body.  In the purely OBE state I felt more as a cloud of consciousness.  When I traveled to the 'other' place, where interaction with the entities took place, I felt I had the image of my '25 year old' body.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Wonder, happy, sad, longing, frustration, love, curiosity...

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           I could hear what my physical body was hearing.  As I said, I seemed to be fully conscious in multiple layers.

Did you see a light?           Uncertain      I did not see a blinding light, or tunnel of light, but attributes of this can be said to be experienced.

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes     It is explained above.  Much interaction took place between myself and two beings, one being male, the other female, both having separate, distinct personalities.

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

I practiced separating from my body, wandering around in the immediate OBE state (consisting of my house), and rushing back into my body.  I did this perhaps 7-9 times.  I also attempted to look at my physical body while OBE and couldn't do it.   Once I went back to view my physical body, it was like a magnet repulsing my vision from looking at my physical form.  After a few attempts, I was only able to view a blurred, unfocused 'gray' area where my physical body was.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes     My two children playing in the house and one of my dogs barking.

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Yes            They can either be circumvented, or they can be enhanced, depending on how you want to focus the 5 senses.  For example, touch;  I could put my hand on a tree and feel it as 100 % physical feeling, or I could put my hand right through it.  Whichever way I focused my intentions, the senses would act accordingly.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes     Very strange to explain.  I was in a place very far away, but existing someplace 'inside'.

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?    Uncertain           

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?             Uncertain      The entities there had said I was 9 planes or planets out.  Whatever that means...

Did you become aware of future events?       No      

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       Yes     I was very aware of the fact that it was 'time' to return to my body.

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         Uncertain      I have an enormous amount of experiences of this nature and others (ET abduction/contact, OBEs, astral travel, lucid dreams, etc.).  I don't know if this particular experience opened up anything else in me or not.  The experiences are too numerous to say one or another might have opened (or shut) things inside of me.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Uncertain      It was just another experience validating the reality of these paranormal experiences I experience.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       These experiences have and had change me dramatically.  People really don't like discussing these things.  It freaks them out.  You learn to live with it almost as if it is 'special' information, as if it is a foundational truth that other people just can't wrap their minds around.  It is immensely large and complex and ties EVERYTHING together.  But most people cannot even understand the first basic step of it all; that we truly have a soul, a spirit, that can be separate from our body.  If they can't come to terms with that, how can they with the deeper truths?

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes     It always does after an experience.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     Mixed.  The majority it is too fantastical and you learn not to discuss the experiences with them.  I really have only two people I can talk to about them, and only one of them can understand it because she is going through it also.

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  Elation, love and sadness at how much we have been forced to forget in order to physically manifest on Earth.  It seems such an impossible climb back to remembrance of our eternal self.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      It is hard to discern that way.  I have had very negative frightening experiences that turn out to be extremely enlightening to the spirit.  But, on the most basic of levels; the best part was consciously leaving my body.  The worst part was being back in my body.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        Again, I have had numerous experiences, and this is just one.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         Yes     Dreaming

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Uncertain      It explains the experience, but not the overall importance of the experience to the individual soul.  It is not a belief, or a faith.  IT IS A KNOWN.

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire.    Maybe ask if the experience to place in the physical world, the spirit realms, or in a place in between.
