Experience description:   

When I exit my body during the dream state, I am fully aware of the fact that I am in some type of dream state.  I am outside my body.  I can walk into the living room, create a door and exit outside.  I can create images or they just appear before me.  All of my senses seem real.  I can feel the dampness of grass at my feet when I am walking on my lawn.  I can feel the soft fur of my cat that I am petting.  I can feel the mist of water on my body from a waterfall, I can hear beautiful music playing.  I can increase the volume or lower it by concentration.  It is really awesome.  I do not know what it all means.  I will not buy into any one set belief system.  I am trying to be as open minded as possible.  This is why I want information from researchers.  I can not talk about it to very many people for fear of them thinking I am nuts. 

All I know is that it is a great feeling and they are the ones missing out.

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

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes

How can I explain what it is like to leave my body?  I know that if I can, any other human can.  Somehow, I believe this is a very much natural ability that has been taken away from us.  We need to learn this again.  I don't know why I can do this and most people can not. Most religions in our society do not advocate this.  In contrast, it is considered to be evil and associated with mental illness.  Having been raised catholic, I dealt with this for many years!  I got over it.  Once I crossed the bridge, I found it was beautiful and there was nothing to fear at all.  In fact, it makes you closer with God. 

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?           Totally alert!

Was the experience dream like in any way?   Sometimes things appear that seem odd.  Sometimes my OBE turns into a lucid dream.  It is like being there in your dream.  You are aware of it and can manipulate what happens..  pretty cool

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes

I don't know what I look like outside of my body.  I just know that I am out of it.  Sometimes I look at myself sleeping in my bed.  I think that it is probably just an image of my looking at myself in bed.  Since I am out of my body, how can I see without eyes?

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Sometimes I feel the Chakras opening.  Very intense and wonderful feeling1

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           Yes!  Almost always, before leaving my body I hear noises.  Loud noises.  It may be people talking, cars driving by my house, chain saws, people rattling on my door, toilet flushing ...etc...  This used to scare the shit out of me and would put a quick halt to my exit from the body.  Now...I just ignore it. I learned this from various authors on the subject of obe such as Denning & Phillips and Robert Bruce.  I know that it is only a positive sign that I can exit my body soon.  What it all means, I have no clue.  I am only answering your questions.  I just hope someone can find some answers.

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

Did you see a light?           Yes

White light surrounding my body for safety.  I learned this from a book I read to be protected in the astral world.

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes

I have met other beings in the astral world.  They appear in a human form and we communicate by thoughts.  Eventually, the appearance will begin to fade and they will look like alien type creatures and begin to fade altogether.

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?          Yes

I can put my hand through solid objects...but only with practice.  It is difficult to learn to remove yourself from the physical laws of gravity.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Uncertain

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

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       Yes

I can chose when to return.

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 makes my realize that there is something beyond the physical world!

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       I am more interested in ancient religions now that focus on out of body experiences.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes

I see the physical world differently than I did before.  Somehow, it does not seem as important.  It just doesn't matter how much money you have or whatever.  The astral world is so powerful and does not cost a dime.  We do not work in the astral world.  It is there free for our taking.  We just need to explore it.  Too bad modern religion and various teachings has taken this ability away from people.  I am just a regular gal.  Anyone can do this if I can.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes

Most people do not understand and they think it is really strange.  I wish I could talk to others that understand.

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  I feel closer to God.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      Best part was the time that I meditated outside of my body and I experienced a "oneness with the universe"  I felt very loved and a wonderful and overwhelming experience of the Chakras opening and uniting with the whole universe.  Hard to describe!

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        No. I need to get some rest.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No

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