Gary R's Experience

Experience description:   

While still asleep around 8 a.m., I began to feel a rumble and heard an incredibly loud roaring sound.  Instantly I thought (without opening my eyes), "It's an earthquake!"  As soon as I thought that, it felt like I was on a conveyor belt moving extremely fast!  "I should slide off the bed and hit the floor", I thought, but I didn't.  It felt like I was on the conveyor belt for about 30 to 45 sec.  and I began to wonder why I wasn't sliding off the bed and landing on the floor.  Right after I wondered that; I slammed on the floor at the foot of my bed.  I arose from the floor; not even thinking to look back at the bed because here I was on the ground before my bed. 

Not even noticing my body on the bed I walked out of the bedroom looking at my hands and everything. Everything was "Light" or "Energy", but a little hazy.  Walking around the house I noticed the answering machine blinking red with a message.  I pushed play, and as I didn't 5 voices began to laugh at me.  I had credit problems at the time and voices of different creditors began to laugh at me simultaneously.  When I heard this, I said, "This is WEIRD!!!!!".  Next thing I know; I sit up in bed.  Wondering what the hell just happened.  Unfamiliar with Astral travel at the time, I just let it go. 

Again this happened one morning not long after.  Same sounds and vibrations as the first time, but it happened 3 times that morning.  I would end up on the floor with no explanation of what just happened, get up and begin to walk around the house marveling at matter.  It was light energy and the haziness had faded everything was crystal clear.  Then I would sit up in bed wondering if I was dreaming, but it was sooooooooo different than dreaming.  It was REAL!  I then fell back to sleep when again the sounds and vibrations began.  Again I ended up on the floor thinking, "What is going on?"  3 times it happened that morning. 

Shortly afterwards again I was lying in bed around 8 a.m. and the sounds began along with the conveyor belt movement.  Again I arose from the floor and began to walk out of my bedroom, when something caught my attention. I looked to the left and saw my body asleep on the bed.  The VERY instant I saw this; a powerful force began to pull me back to my body, but I didn't want to go.  So I grabbed on to the door jam and held on as a force of "gravity" tried to suck me back to my body.  I was literally horizontal in the air.  With my hands tightly holding onto the door jam and my feet in the air like I was being sucked up by an extremely powerful vacuum.  I then pulled myself around the door jam and into the hall, and I succeeded!  I stood in the hallway in amazement.  Staring at my hands and light body; I was certain on what was happening, but I knew I had left my body. 

I then began to share my stories with friends; not understanding what had happened.  One friend then told me I was leaving my body and to fly.  So about 2 months later the sounds returned along with the conveyor belt movement.  This time; however, when the movement began I thought, "No!  Fly!!!"  And I began to float out of my body into the air!!!!  This felt so amazing and free that I began to dance on my ceiling of my apartment.  I was upside down dancing on the ceiling.  Being a Scorpio, this really fascinated me!  I began to read books by Robert Monroe, and began meditating 4 to 8 hours a day for at least 6 months.  During that time I began to be able to rarely self induce an OOB. 

Like the time I was meditating on the couch.  The sounds had faded away and the conveyor belt movement became just a higher frequency.  As I was meditating (lying down), I began to hover above my body and I could see a red glow vibrating inside of me.  I watched this for a short period when all of a sudden I was outside in the night air flying around at the beach.  I fly all the time now, but this was still probably one of my favorites because I could feel a magnetic force all over my body!  I could fly as fast as I wanted to or just float there, but the feeling of a magnetic force was amazing!  Floating there, I ran my hand through the air and it was like pushing it through an ether of magnetic force.  "WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!", is all I could muster up. 

Since all this started in 1998, I've left my body at least 100 times.  I've flown from Earth to the moon then to Mars, I've examined my physical body while on the Astral plane, a spirit has taught me to move objects with my mind while on the Astral plane, I've tried to wake friends up to join me, I've been under water, I've been to the Akashic Records, I've been a leaf blowing in the wind, etc...  I've extracted by sliding out, flying out, rolling out, floating out, sinking out, sometimes a vortex will create at the back of my head and I'll allow myself to be sucked into it, etc... I'll try to submit my other experiences later.

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?     Yes    Once I left my body and began walking on a cloud until I came upon a huge book about 14 stories tall.  The book was blue and titled "Animal Instincts".  As I approached the book opened and a magnetic force came flying out of the book and held me captivated and paralyzed while symbols ran across the page.  Fast the symbols were!  After all the symbols flashed before my, the great book closed and I sat up in bed.  I instantly knew.  I knew what the book was about.  It had unlocked the secrets of the universe.  Life, death, creation, God.  I knew instantly what the book had shared with me

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?           Yes    4 years after the OOB's began, my room mate had the electricity turned off in the apartment we lived in.  It was November 2002 in Oklahoma.  Before I came home around 5 p.m. from work (he & I worked together) he informed me he was really behind on paying the electric bill and it had been turned off so when I got home there would be no electricity.  When I got home, I sat on the couch grabbed a book ("Ishmael") and began reading to what sunlight I had left.  Shortly the sun began to set and I had no electricity to read to.  I closed the book, laid it on the coffee table and thought, "I'll just lie here and think."  So I lied on the couch and began pondering the power of the electric co.  I could really feel on much we relied on it as a society, and I could really feel the power that it possess in our world.  How people's lives can be altered by this company.  As I was beginning to feel the awesome power of the electric co., all of a sudden it felt like while lightning trickling down the walls.  The heater then kicked on along with lights and the refrigerator.  I sat up in amazement!  Around 11 p.m. my room mate came home.  "What happened?", he asked.  "I don't know.  I was meditating on the power of the electric co. and the electricity just came on!", I replied.  Seven months later he called me (I moved to L.A. again by this time), and said, "Well man, you will never belief this, but OG&E (Oklahoma General Electric) called me and wants to know how I got the electricity back on.  They have no record of it being turned on and their records show it is off and has been off for 7 months!"  He hadn't received a bill for 7 months, and yes they did back bill him, but they still have no explanation for how the electricity was turned back on!

After my OOBE's I began writing the Thought/Feeling continuum, after reading "Ramtha", I began to question my writings.  I lied down to go to bed and without closing my eyes the ceiling disappeared (a apartment was above mine) and I could see the night sky.   A huge glowing hand of light (right hand I think) gently came from the sky.  It was about 10 feet wide.  The hand was closed like a fist with the index finger extended pointed at me.  The hand stopped with the index finger about 1 foot from my face; then in a loud voice I heard, "YOU ARE RIGHT".  It then disappeared and the second story came back. 

Generally I can pick someone's birthday within 2 days.

My hands feel like magnets of Chi.  My hands will float up in mediation, truly I understand raising of the hands in the bible.  My arms feel like the wings of a bird and it feels as if I'm going to fly.


Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?          Yes    I realized I am God as is everyone and everything.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?       Yes          When you can see your body lying on the bed and you outside of it, you KNOW you are not that flesh, but rather an energy.  And once you've realized that the secular world loses it's temptation.
