Enya L's Experiences

Experience description:   

First experience at age 13.  I was drifting off to sleep.  Heard a loud buzzing noise and sensation of being held down and paralyzed- unable to wake up or move- very frightening- feeling like I was fighting to not be pulled down and out of my body. These experiences occurred spontaneously and could occur in bed prior to sleep onset or during sleep. at this point no sensation of leaving body. At one point during an experience I felt like I was fighting so hard to not get sucked down and out of my body that I felt exhausted so I decided to see what would happen if I just let go and let myself be pulled down- the sensation was terrifying . it was like falling at a million miles an hr away from my body in the dark , I abruptly jerked myself awake and sat up.

The first out of body experience I believe to have had was while sleeping- I dreamed I floated out of my room, down the hall and saw my little brother on the floor asleep with crackers on the floor around him. The next morning when I woke my mother was asking my little brother why he had not slept in his bed and why he had made a mess of crackers in the living room. continued to have episodes like the first episode without OOB for years- sometime multiple times a month , sometimes years in between.

The next OOB episode I believe I had, I got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and came back into my room shocked to find someone in my bed - It was me. I have always had a fear of an entity inhabiting my body so I just wanted back in my body so I attempted to lay down but immediately was pulled to the ceiling. I was looking at the ceiling and concentrating as hard as I could to push with mental energy against the ceiling to push my self back into my body, once back in my body I relaxed and was immediately back at the ceiling. this time when I got back in my body I abruptly jerked myself awake.

one of the experiences I had when I was approx. 31yrs old. I was post partum and exhausted. I had laid down to take a nap while the baby was sleeping and just as I was drifting off to sleep, I felt someone rush at me from across the room- The footsteps across the carpet where fast and sounded likes static and I could sense the rushing sensation of something coming at me. I awoke abruptly with a fight or flight sensation thinking someone was in my room. I was shaken but the sensation didn't feel as though someone had intent of hurting me but rather was excited to see me- almost like I had elevated to a slightly different dimension or vibration where the other soul was racing to greet me because they hadn't had any company in a while.

a lot of times when I have the onset before I'm asleep it is scary and it feels like I am so exhausted there is no way to wake up and stop the process. sometimes it feels like I'm wide awake and the buzzing starts and I just start getting sucked into a paralyzed sleep state. The one I had this morning , I had just drifted of to sleep when the buzzing started. Then I could hear distant conversations- I thought my husband had come home early from work and was talking on the phone in the kitchen but It didn't sound like his voice. I managed to wake up long enough to listen and there was nothing and then impending exhaustion and buzzing started all over and this time I could hear several conversations going on at once and some sounding like they might have been in foreign languages and then I felt like I rolled out of my body and I was in a spherical shape like a balloon and rolling up the wall and floating. When I awoke from this one, I just wanted it to stop but I was too tired to get out of bed and drifting back to sleep- the buzzing , and paralyzed feeling started again. this time I felt a pressure on my lower legs like my dog was crawling over me to jump off the bed but I knew the dog couldn't have been on the bed because she would have woke me jumping up on the bed- I was able to wake up and look down at my legs to see if someone or something where pushing on them and was sucked back into the same buzzing state and after a few minutes I could feel foot steps across my bed until they touched my leg- I jerked myself awake and despite the heavy sensation of exhaustion I forced myself out of bed.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience? I have often questioned weather what I am experiencing is OOB experiences or dreams. The thing that is so different from a dream is that I can be in a relaxed state and awake and it engulfs me- completely unlike a sleeping state of dreaming
