Joline R's Experience

Experience description:   

I have been having OBE experiences all my life but I will talk about this one because I was surrounded by people and a medical crew.

I was in a group setting at a Peak Potential event, Wizzard Camp.  We were roughly 200 people in the room.  They filmed me, there is a video. 

I lied on my back, on the floor, eyes closed and started to meditate with the group.  Suddenly I heard a loud noise, then all the voices became clear.  I could hear people complain and talk everywhere.  One guy was screaming constantly.  I heard a voice say "open your eyes".  I tried to open my eyes but everything was blurry.  Then I watched someone slap me across the face saying my name.  I watched my head swing from one side to the next from being slapped.  But I felt nothing.  I watched as though I was face to face with myself.  Someone flashed a light in my eyes.  I heard people panic.  A few people were around me, they were deciding who was going to give me mouth to mouth if I stopped breathing.  One man drew blood and they had it analyzed for drugs.  They put tiny stickers on my body attached to a scanner.  On my forearms, chest and head.  One man said, look at her eyes.  All this time I kept loosing my vision, so everything turned black, but I never lost the sounds.  I've been in OBEs before and I know that I need to concentrate on opening my eyes to see, but the sound is always present.  I herd one man say "this is amazing, it rewrites all medical studies" another said " Wow, I'm going to do the same and get all my vaccines, so I'll be ready the next time I need to travel"  I'm assuming they found my vaccines through the blood test.  One guy lifted my right arm and let it drop on the cement floor, he said "she's faking"  Another said, she has no drugs, nothing, not even caffeine.  One man, Martyn Williams held his fingers on my left wrist to check my heart beat. 

When I re-entered my body I entered with my physical eyes open.  It's a strange feeling, I see then I close my physical eyes.  My jaw was hanging wide open.  My entire body was completely relaxed, I'm not even like this when I sleep.  When I sleep my eyes and jaw stay closed.  While OBE my eyes are open and jaw completely relaxed.  I heard a guy say, "oh darn I wanted to see her eyes, I missed it"

It took me a few minutes to refocus.  Martyn was kneeling beside me he looked into my eyes and asked me if I could see him.  I nodded yes.  Then like a rush, I felt my arm was asleep, pins and needles.  My cheeks were sore from being slapped.  I sat up and started to shake my arms to let the blood circulate again.  But my face hurt for a long time.  My right elbow also hurt for a long time from being dropped on the floor.  Martyn stood and asked if I could stand.  I did, then he walked away.  I watched him walk away then took a step in the opposite direction, I was not very solid.  I almost lost balance a few times and quickly dropped to the floor so I wouldn't fall on anyone.  I pushed the heavy door open and lost balance fell into a computer.  Then the laughter started.  I couldn't stop myself from laughing.  My stomach and cheeks hurt from laughing.  It's a strange laugh, because it's not related to anything funny, it's just this uncontrollable feeling coming from inside.  I tried to stop myself from laughing, but it's like something took over my body.  I've had that same uncontrollable laughter every time I return to my body.  A woman followed me with a video camera and filmed me wobbling as I tried to walk and kept falling everywhere. 

The meditation lasted one hour.  But I think I was OBE for maybe 30 minutes or more, I'm not sure. 

I have lots more stories like this one.   

At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event?   No  

Was the experience difficult to express in words?....Yes....I have a difficulty finding words for things that are not easily explained by our regular vocabulary.  Emotions and feelings are difficult to explain.

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?....More consciousness and alertness than normal    I'm not sure, I was focused on the people who were slapping me around and had a hard time enjoying the experience due to the panic that surrounded me.  Although being OBE feels absolutely amazing.  I've had other times when I did achieve a higher level of consciousness, but this time was not one of them.....I was aware of every tiny moment and remember everything clearly.  It felt like time stopped and I could hear everyone all at the same time.  When I re-entered my body I could no longer hear everybody talking and complaining.  Which tells me I could hear their thoughts.  Hear their mental chatter.  I just felt a strong presence, very hard to explain with words.

Please compare your vision during the experience to your everyday vision that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    My vision was blurred at first, I had to focus on opening my eyes.  Then when I saw a man slap me across the face I closed my non physical eyes and everything went black.  Like when I have my eyes closed.  I tried to re-open again to see again, but it was difficult and blurry.  I had to concentrate to see clearly.

Please compare your hearing during the experience to your everyday hearing that you had immediately prior to the time of the experience.    My hearing was the same except I heard sounds I don't normally hear.  I heard people's mental chatter and mental singing and complaining.  And I heard a loud noise at first which then transformed to voices.

Did you see or hear any earthly events that were occurring during a time that your consciousness / awareness was apart from your physical / earthly body?    Yes   During the experience everything seemed normal.  It's just after I realized I was hearing people's thoughts and seeing things I shouldn't have seen because my body was clearly not in a waking state.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?....I felt calm, peaceful feeling, exempt when I saw him slap me violently across the face.  I wondered why everybody was panicking and being very loud.  But at the same time I was peaceful, not tired, calm.  When I re-entered my body I felt all the physical senses return, pain to my cheeks, right elbow and very tired.  

Did you pass into or through a tunnel?....No....

Did you see an unearthly light?....No....

Did you seem to encounter a mystical being or presence, or hear an unidentifiable voice?....I heard a voice I could not identify    I heard a voice telling me to open my eyes.  The voice sounded male and was calm and reassuring.  I felt a calm energy surrounding me.

Did you encounter or become aware of any deceased (or alive) beings?....Uncertain    The voice I heard telling me to open my eyes, I don't know who that was.

Did you become aware of past events in your life during your experience?....No....

Did you seem to enter some other, unearthly world?....No....

Did time seem to speed up or slow down?....No....

Did you suddenly seem to understand everything?....No....

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?....No....

Did you come to a border or point of no return?....No....

Did scenes from the future come to you?....No....

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge or purpose?....Yes....I knew I was out of body and in a different plane.  I've had similar experiences before.

Discuss any changes that might have occurred in your life after your experience:....No changes in my life....Since this was not my first OBE my personal views have not changed.....

Did you have any changes in your values or beliefs after the experience that occurred as a result of the experience?    No    

Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience?....Uncertain     I have abilities which I had both before and after the experience.  Since this was not my first experience.

Have you ever shared this experience with others?   Yes   They didn't believe me.  So I never talked about it again.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?....Yes     Yes I've always viewed the world differently than most people but I could never talk about it.

What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:....Experience was definitely real    Since I observed my body undergo medical procedure it made me questions things differently than before.

What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time:....Experience was definitely real....I was just awake all the time.  I never went from meditating to sleeping then waking up.  I never fell asleep.  I just went from being on the floor in my body to floating above my body and then returned.

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?....No....

Have your religious beliefs/spiritual practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?....No   

At any time in your life, has anything ever reproduced any part of the experience?....Yes    I've had more out of body experiences, I just chose to tell you about this one because of the medical involvement which was not present in the others.  Except once when I was in the surgery room.

Did the questions asked and information that you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?    Yes   

Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you?     This time I watched people from a medical background panic around me.  Before this I never questioned if my physical body went through any changes, because it almost always happened when I was alone or with people who are not in a medical profession.  So now I've started to question myself what happens to my physical body when in this state.  Before I would just get immersed in the experience without any worry to my physical body.

Is there anything else that you would like to add about your experience?....I have many more if you'd like to hear about them also.
