Chevy N's Experience
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.
observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that
could be verified later?
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
