Experience description:   

I was in bed resting and had to get up for an appointment.  It was late afternoon, my body went rigid and my head cocked back.  There was a loud high pitched frequency sound in my ears and I felt like I had woken up into a different energy field as I could feel my entire body vibrating.  My hands had a very strong pins and needle feeling. My spirit guide was standing above my body and the form was like snow on the tv, then it started to come in more full. I could hear voices and sense strong emotions.  I was terrified so I asked the guide to please not show themselves and she disappeared. 

I could turn my head to look at the time and I could see the clock changing as the minutes passed. I could see and feel my cat on the bed.  I could see my clothes on me but I had no body, I was waving my hands frantically above my face and they were not there.  I was sure I was awake but it seemed so surreal so as a scientist I began to do some tests to verify that I was awake. I put my hands on my face and could feel them there but I still couldn't see them. Then I put my fingers in my mouth and I could feel them and I could feel that they were wet.  I knew I was awake.  I was very scared so I said a prayer and asked God and my spirit guides to please stop whatever was happening to me because I was frightened.  It stopped immediately and I was finally able to get out of bed. 

I felt fine but my hands still had pins and needles.  When I told others I described it as a seizure because I didn't know what it was.  I was sure it was a spiritual experience as I have a high channeling ability.  The next day I witnessed someone have a grand mal seizure so I called my mom to tell her I though I had a physical premonition about it.  She made me call a nurse and the nurse insisted that I go to the hospital.  The doctor could not figure it out (I didn't expect him to believe in the paranormal) and he said it was a bad dream - even though I knew I was awake.  The next day I called a medium and she informed me that it was an OBE and to do research on it.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     Uncertain            I am taking some medication for inflammation (celebrex), I had only been on it for a week

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain      I could express it but it was hard for others to believe me.  I described it like a seizure because I was paralyzed and the rush of energy in my body.  But I knew it wasn't a seizure because I was completely aware of what was happening to me

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?           Very alert even though I had just woken up, I felt I had a heightened level of consciousness

Was the experience dream like in any way?   It seemed so impossible the brain wants to classify it as a dream because it shouldn't be real but you know you are not dreaming

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Uncertain      I was conscious and I felt like I was in my body but I could not see my body.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Rage and terror

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           Yes I could hear a very loud high pitch frequency sound, I also could hear my guides telling me that the angry emotions I was sensing was the result of my own fear

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      I was in my room and everything is as it always is, the only change was the spirit guide in my room

Did you see a light?           No      

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes     My spirit guide was standing over my body and the form was like snow on a tv receiving no signal then it started to come in to a dark color at which point I asked it to leave

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Uncertain            It was like I was high and all my senses were in overdrive

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       Yes     I asked God to have the experience stop and I immediately returned to my physical body

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?   No      

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       Some people think that I am crazy. In the last year I have discovered my physchic ability which is actually genetic so my family is supportive because I am not the only one with "powers", the event gave my boyfriend proof that weird things happen to me that no one else we know experiences

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         No      

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     It depends on their beliefs, Many tried to explain it as a dream or a medical emergency.  But a few believed me and the medium I talked to told me it has happened to her and what it was

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  Once I found out it was and OBE I was no longer upset about it and have been trying to learn more about it in case it happens again

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      The worst part was having to go to the hospital to have a doctor basically tell you you were crazy

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     If I would have known what was happening to me I wouldn't have been so afraid and I would have been open to seeing the guides and hearing the voices.  If I would have let the experience continue I might have had messages come to me.
