Daniel A's Experience
I have had too many experiences, and I think i am going to keep having them. But this is the one i would like to share with you.
too many experiences. Some of them are impossible to explain. When I was 16 I
saw a white light that was very intense. It was an endless light, no limits were
there. The strangest thing was that when I woke up, I felt a terrible pain in my
eyes. So I went to the restroom, and, to my surprise, I found out that my eyes
had a red color, as a signal of having looked directly to an intense light. I
was almost blind at that time. I recovered my vision gradually.
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes

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

Did you see a light? Yes

I once saw my dead grandmother. She tried to talk to me, but when she was about to do it, I felt at intense vibration, almost like electricity. I tried to wake up but I was trapped there for some minutes. I felt pain.
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Yes
I am not sure if they were different. I am always very concentrated in what is going on in the experience, i haven't been able to analyze my senses. They are basically the same.
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? Yes
Yes. Many times I try so hard to return to my body. But I cant. Sometimes I am trapped somewhere without the chance of returning for a while. That is really bad, because I feel I can't move my physical body, even though I try. In that moment I see the same room my physical body is, but I cannot move.

Now I know that something is going on with me and I am looking for information.

I sleep with fear, and my rest is affected.
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes
I don't know if they were influenced. Sometimes people are reluctant to believe these kind of stuff.
