It started as a regular
dream, I was walking thru a outdoor concert venue with a friend and seen my
favorite artist, Tori Amos playing her piano. I said out loud to myself 'I
wonder how many Tori concerts I've been to?' I will have to ask my friend when I
wake up how many times I've seen her in concert I said to myself then I realized
at that point that I said 'when I wake up'? Hey I must be dreaming! Now being
aware that I was dreaming it turned into a lucid dream. I was able to control my
dream. So I decided to merge with a tree I saw in my dream....and it was
wonderful, I became the tree. I felt the wind blowing on all my branches and
felt the warmth on one side of me from the setting sun. I also tried out flying!
wow it was amazing.
the next part of my
experience is when the feeling felt like it shifted from a dream to a completely
I was standing in a
black void. I felt no other beings around me, just me completely by myself. Then
about 15 feet or so in front of me was a very beautiful bright white light. it
was shaped like you know if the sun shine is coming thru a window, well it was
exactly like that. I approached the bright light and was intrigued by it. I
decided to 'merge' with the light and as I leaned forward my body started to
'vibrate' I stepped back briefly as I was so puzzled to what this light meant,
but then I decided that 'I know I cant get hurt, lets just do this and see what
happens'. so I re-merged with the light and I cant put into words the pure
feeling of love and bliss that I felt. it was amazing and I for the briefest of
time felt I had a knowledge of everything and was surrounded by? god? the
creator? whatever you want to call it. I never did put a label on it, I just
think of it as the 'creator'..
Then I started to
come out of it, I felt my whole body shake and vibrate and as I woke up I felt a
buzzing sound in my right ear, as if there were a bunch of bumble bees next to
my ear.....and then it was all over.
Ever since this first
experience, I have had quite a few OBEs as well as lucid dream and a few
episodes of sleep paralysis. My psychic abilities and especially my intuition
has sky rocketed! ive had premonitions in my waking life, pre-cognitive dreams
and I know what someone is going to say before they say it. its as if I can feel
what a person is feeling before they display any emotion.
This OBE happened shortly after I began to develop my belief system about well
everything. I have always been interested in the paranormal, metaphysics and
especially witchcraft. Once I decided to completely devote myself to the studies
and practices of witchcraft, all these events started occurring to me including
this first of many OBEs.
