Experience description:   

I had just gone to bed and I was sleeping, but before I got into an especially deep sleep, my consciousness returned to me, but I was paralyzed and I couldn't move.  I heard the voice of my mom speaking to me, but she was asleep in the other room and it was coming from another direction entirely and it was closer than that, too.  I also heard my PlayStation/TV going and Capcom VS SNK Pro was being played.  I didn't look in either direction, all I saw was my body, I could just tell from the sounds.  I was afraid to look.  I tried moving my limbs, but it took a lot of strength. 

I felt like I was forcefully being pulled from my body and had gotten a short distance from my body before I got back into it.  I managed to move my limbs a few times and after I'd considered myself more than scared enough, I moved my arms again and tried to break out of whatever trance I was in.  Then I woke up and got online.  I figured I'd do a lil research on Google to see if anyone had any similar experiences.  I haven't found any yet, but I found this site and I think you know the rest.  This wasn't my first OBE, but it was my only scary one.  I don't know what was trying to take me from my body, but I didn't wanna go wherever it was going to take me.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?  No.     

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words?  Uncertain.  I don't quite remember what I heard exactly.

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?  It was definitely at full.

Was the experience dream like in any way?  Reality is dream like, to me.

 Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?  Yes.   I didn't see it.  I never do, actually.  Sorry I couldn't be more helpful there.

 What emotions did you feel during the experience?  Fear.  Totally unlike any of my other OBEs.

 Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? Mhmm.  I heard my mom talking and Capcom VS SNK Pro playing on m'TV.  I don't know what else I heard, but I just had the experience and that's all I can remember.

Did you meet or see any other beings?  Uncertain.  None that I saw.  All I heard was my mom's voice, but I REALLY don't think it was my mom.  My mom wouldn't scare the s$#% outta me like that.

Did you experiment while out body or in another altered state?  For example did you attempt to visit a family member or friend at another location?  Did you eyewitness an event that you would not have known about had you not been out of body?  Did you attempt to move a physical object while in the astral/etheric universe?  Yes

If yes or uncertain, what did you do and what was the result of the experimentation?       I did on another occasion.  But I didn't actually go where I was trying to go.  Even my soul has no sense of direction.  -laughs-  I even wound up in outer space.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? No. 

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?  Yes.  They weren't different.  Even in dreams, all my senses work perfectly.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?  Uncertain.  My blanket was gone, but in reality, it was still there.

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?  No. 

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes.  On a few other OBEs (when I was willingly using astral projection), I couldn't get through the walls of my house.  That kinda sucked.

Did you become aware of future events?  No. 

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?  Yes.  I didn't want whatever it was to take me wherever it wanted to take me.

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience?  Uncertain.  Not yet.  I was already an empath.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?  Uncertain.  I'm starting to think some demonic/psychic attacks or whatever are real.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices etc.? Career choices?  It hasn't really changed anything.  Neither of them did.  My mom is very spiritual, so I learned alot from her in the first place, including astral projection. 

Have you shared this experience with others?  Yes.  A few.  They were freaked out, like I was.  One girl joked about it, though.  Saying it was going to take me to her house.  -slight laugh-

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  Relief.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?  There was no best part.  The worst part was probably being pulled from my body.  It didn't hurt or anything, but I could tell I wasn't willingly leaving my body.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?  Not really.  I said everything I remember.

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

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.  You were thorough.  It was good.

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire.  Are there any other questions we could ask to help you communicate your experience?  Not that I can think of.
