Janet W OBEs



The experience has happened for 5 times within a year while sleeping at night. They are more or less the same in terms of details, time of occurrence etc, becoming like a routine.

I suddenly awoke at late night, my eyes were closed but I saw visions under my eye-lids. The visions were vivid and dynamic, they were usually sceneries of beach, garden or farm with moving people or animals. At that moment, my consciousness was as clear as at daytime, I could think in conscious mind, wondering why they happen or what they all mean. At the same time, I could feel my spirit (like an essence) filling up and getting back to my body from my toes to my breast. When my spirit has completely filled up my body, I could no longer see the visions. All stopped. I saw blackness under my eye-lids again just like ordinary people. Then I could get up easily and everything gets back to normal.

The visions are not events or stories, they are simply images and sceneries, beautiful and things on earth (flowers, pigs, grass or sea etc) but I have never saw them in my personal life. I was definitely not in a state of dream (Cos I can remember all the dreams at night and I can identify the difference between dream and conscious awareness.).

I wonder if anybody shares the same experience and what it stands for.  Is my spirit wandering somewhere at night? Or something is broadcasted to me to see while my spirit leaves my body?

Thanks for your help.
