Jake P's Experience
It was the winter of my senior year in high school. I had just turned 17 that September. I was taking a nap on the couch. It was about 2:00 in the afternoon on a Saturday. I remember that it was a nice day outside. Dad was on the back patio grilling food on the BBQ. The television was on but the volume was turned all of the way down. I was lying face down on the couch with my head buried in a pillow. I do not know how long I hade been napping, when I first sensed the vibrations coming. Actually it was just the solar-plexus pulse, I had not yet felt any vibrations. My eyes popped open and I shot up off of the couch as fast as I could. My whole lives goal was to be able to stop it. I have never been able to get up before the vibrations set in, but I did this time. I couldnít believe it. I could still feel an electrical hum, really weak. Other than that I felt great. No vibrations and I was able to get up and ruin the whole thing.
I ran into the dining room to tell my friend, Lee. He was much older, and had the same type of paralysis events too. I ran into tell him what had just happened, but he was on the phone. I tried to get his attention, but he was talking to his bank about a bank receipt or something and he did not want to talk to me right then. Fine! I knew my mom would be interested. I looked out where dad was grilling, but she was not out there. As I passed by Lee again, I looked on the ground by the desk and saw the paper that he was looking for, and started pointing at it as I went by. He was still ignoring me.
I got about half way down the hallway on my way to the back bedrooms when I realized something was very wrong. I could still feel the dull hum. Worst yet I was suddenly hit with a large wave of excitement that usually came before the vibrations set in. I stopped in the middle of the hallway to make sure that I didnít fall over. All of the sudden I became aware of the vibrations. Itís not like they hit me. It is more like I became aware of them. It was very strange to become aware of these sensations in the middle of walking down the hall. The vibrations became fairly strong, but I could still move just fine. Right about then, I noticed that my hand had somehow slipped through the wall. I was leaning against it, trying not to fall over. My heart started racing. What the hell is going on?
As I looked down the hallway, I started to rise slowly off of the ground, very slowly, but enough to scare the hell out of me. I tried to grab onto the wall and push my way down the hall. I remember I was yelling for help. I knew that my mom was just few feet away, but she could not hear me. I was able to guide myself down the hallway. I seemed to float like a helium balloon. I could not move very fast. I was starting to panic! I finally got to where my mom was. She had a bunch of towels in her hands that she had just folded and walked right past me and didnít even notice me. She spun me around as she passed me as if I was lighter than air. She still could not hear me. She was down stairs and out of sight in no time. Damn it!
That is when the vibrations got really, really strong, and I noticed that they seemed to be coming from the center of my brain. As soon as I tried to put my hands on my head, I realized that I could not move. The vibrations kept getting more intense and I thought that I was dying. My body floated slowly to a horizontal position somewhere toward the ceiling of the hallway. Things started to Ďfadeí out. Just then I was back on the couch, vibrating out of control. Everything was familiar, the full-body-hum, and the vibrations etc. everything was how I remembered this strange paralysis state to be except one thing. As I lay there I realized that I was not afraid. I did not have the burning fear layer. It was not there! The vibrations continued. I also realized that the menacing entity that had been my companion throughout these events was gone. There was nobody in my mind except for me. For the first time, I did not think that I was going to die before the vibrations stopped. I actually had a minute to lie there and think about what was happening for once. The vibrations subsided quickly, and I could move in a few moments.

I know what it means to 'walk in the spirit'.. :)

What was the best and worst part of your experience? The best part was being able to verify information, thus verify for myself that it was real. There was no FEAR.. That was the biggest difference..
When my hand went through the wall, and I began floating like a hot air balloon,, my entire reality changed forever... It was shocking,,, I felt like vomiting for a quick second... My reality went numb, as belief systems went 'scurrying' away like rats...
Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience? Yes,, This was the first time I have had a fully conscious OBE. Before that it was over a decade of waking paralysis and a visceral vibrational state coupled with a menacing entity that was in the room with me...
Since this experience I have had many hundreds of OBEs and have documented many of them.. I wrote a wee eBook that can be viewed or downloaded from www.thebookofjacob.webs.com
