Kim B's Experiences

Experience description:   

I've had hundreds, maybe a thousand OBEs during my lifetime.  In the beginning, I wasn't frightened at all because it would just happen, and before I knew it, I was hovering over my body, face down at the top of the ceiling.  It was when I started questioning my experiences, that I began to fear them and I began to fight them.  At first, it was the utter feeling of freedom that amazed me.  It felt so good: no fear at all.   

Let me explain, as best I can, what actually takes place when I leave my body.  It always happens when I'm falling asleep.  Always!  As I'm dozing off, I feel a little warm and my body starts to vibrate very fast.  I can almost hear it.  It is in every nerve of my body.  All of the sudden, I cannot move a muscle.  It is like a vice has clamped down on my entire body.  I cannot open my eyes or move a finger.  Before I know it, the vice and the vibrations are gone and I'm hovering over my sleeping body.  I am clothed in the exact same thing I am wearing at the time.  I know, because I have experimented during the daytime, when the fear of darkness does not take over.  

Sometimes I just hover for a few minutes and in an instant, I'm back in my body, wide awake.  I always wake up when I reenter my body.  Sometimes I engage in a type of flying.  Sometimes I just swoosh around a foot or so off the ground.  When I swoosh around, I always avoid physical barriers.  One night, however, I didn't realize a glass door was closed and went right through it.  I found that the door was closed when I awoke the next morning and I realized I had my first penetration experience.   

When I fly, I only go a short distance before I go back, but there is another way to get around in this state of mind and that is to simply will yourself anywhere you want to be.  There is no flying or hovering, you just are there.  It is like you are pure consciousness and you become your thoughts. 

I have a lot to offer on the subject.  I finally decided to write a book and I am currently working on finding representation.  The two most important things I have learned over the years is that we cannot die.  It is impossible.  I also learned that the creative mind is the most powerful instrument we have if we just learn to put it to use.

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes     The clarity of awareness is so overwhelming, it is almost indescribable.  It is difficult to take it from what most would consider a dream, to what it really is.  Words can do no justice in the explanation of this phenomena.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          No      

At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness?    The moment I leave my body

How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal every day consciousness and alertness?    More consciousness and alertness than normal

If your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience was different from your normal every day consciousness and alertness, please explain:            The moment I leave my body

Did your vision differ in any way from your normal, everyday vision (in any aspect, such as clarity, field of vision, colors, brightness, depth perception degree of solidness/transparency of objects, etc.)?  Yes     At times, I could see aura.  Sometimes pure white and sometimes different colors.  As I mentioned above, I can see with my eyes closed in the pitch dark.  You don't use your five physical senses in this state.  They are useless and unnecessary.

Did your hearing differ in any way from your normal, everyday hearing (in any aspect, such as clarity, ability to recognize source of sound, pitch, loudness, etc.)?
            Yes     You don't hear, but you receive communication through mental interaction.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Emotions come afterward.  Emotions are of this physical world and don't play any part when you are out of the physical body.

Did you pass into or through a tunnel or enclosure?          No       I have OBEs, not NDEs.  That might explain it.

Did you see a light?           No       I have OBEs, not NDEs.  That might explain it.

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes     I never saw any other beings, but I did communicate with other entities at times and I have had entities cling to me and sometimes hold me.

Did you experience a review of past events in your life?    No       When I finally realized what was taking place, I lost my fear of death and I knew life held no limitations.  I could do anything I put my mind to.  This led me to a successful life.  Once you know the truth, there is nothing to fear and life opens up to you.  You begin living.  Fear is what limits us.  No more fear.

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

Did you see or visit any beautiful or otherwise distinctive locations, levels or dimensions?            Yes     The moment you leave your body, you go to a different plane of consciousness, so that is a given.  I visited other dimensions very similar to ours.  The big difference was that the people were so much more pleasant and they didn't seem to harbor negative feelings.  It was almost like "The Stepford Wives" movie.  We have many different worlds taking place in the exact space or place we now stand.  We just don't acknowledge them because they reside on a different plane due to the fact that they have a higher or lower vibratory rate than ours.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes     Some of my OBEs seemed to last for hours if not days, however, since I knew what time I went to bed, so by simply checking the time when I woke up from coming back to my body, it was obvious that I was only gone a very short time.  In other words, there is no such thing as time or space.  These are earthy inventions to measure matter and these tools are of no use in unearthly dimensions.

Did you have a sense of knowing special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?     Yes            Yes, but only as I continued to learn from my experiences.  I learned the purpose of life, why and how we came to be here, all about time and space, life and death and rebirth.  My experiences took me from death (ignorance) to life (knowledge).

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes     I thought I reached boundaries, but once I had my first penetration experience, I knew there were no physical boundaries.  I realized that nothing is solid.  Even after I learned not to fear the penetration of seemingly solid barriers, I still tried to avoid them.  I think there is still a feeling of discomfort with penetration.

Did you become aware of future events?       No           

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience you did not have prior to the experience?     Yes     I learned the art of self-healing and the healing of others.  I knew the power of the mind was vast and I took advantage of it.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes     I haven't shared my OBEs with very many people, especially the first twenty years.  Once I began writing my book, I did discuss it with some folks to get their reaction and to see if the subject interested them.  I think there is more reception to this subject today and I find it easier to talk about, but it isn't a subject I discuss loosely.

Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience?    No      

How did you view the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened:            Experience was definitely real    There is no other way to describe it, other than 'REALITY'.  There is no greater reality than leaving your body.  There is absolutely no question about it.  It is more real than the physical world we reside in.  It is the true reality and it gives us a glimpse of our true nature.

Were there one or several parts of the experience especially meaningful or significant to you?    I started reading about OBEs years after my first experience, and I read that there is a silver cord that keeps you connected to your body and I never saw it.  But finally, only one time I did see it and it was amazing.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience:            Experience was definitely real    I have put everything I have learned through all the years I have had my OBEs to good use and now I live only for the moment.  Had I not had these experiences, I might still be a walking, unenlightened zombie.  That is reality.

Have your relationships changed specifically as a result of your experience?           Yes     I no longer look at people with contempt for their stupidity.  I understand that we are all connected in a larger sense.  I learned that everyone will eventually get it and one by one, we will all be able to go home.

Have your religious beliefs/practices changed specifically as a result of your experience?           
Yes     I was raised with Christian beliefs and now I understand that spiritualism is a lonely road.  Religion is group think.  I believe that the creator is within us, but we have lost sight of our divinity and have no recollection from where we came, and more importantly, where we are going.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No      

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        There is a difference between an OBE and a NDE.  NDE should be called RFDE because the person actually dies and returns from death.  I never experienced the tunnels or bright lights because my experiences did not occur due to death.  The NDE is a selfless act of love to be sure, because the person that comes back does it for unselfish reasons.  Usually because another needs them or they have left something important undone.  The last thing anybody wants to do at the time of death is to come back here.  Once they get a glimpse of the other side, it is so beautiful and loving, the last thing they want to do is to come back, but they do because it is an act of love and that is what brings them back.  I will also say that people who have had these experiences do not have fear death anymore and I'll bet they live life to its fullest.

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

Are there any other questions we could ask to help you communicate your experience?   Question:  What do you think your reason was for coming back?  Was there another in need, or a job left undone? Question:  Do you fear death less than before your NDE? 

I would like to see OBEs get more attention on this site!



Hi Fred,

You sent an e-mail to Jody...

Hi Jody,

i would like to communicate with Kim. It's about his or her vision of life. Is it possible?
It's about that: I learned the purpose of life, why and how we came to be here, all about time and space, life and death and rebirth.

I filled out the questionnaire a long time ago. I would love to discuss it with you. I wrote a book entitled Out of the body ~ Into the Mind, about my experiences and will send it to you if you wish.

First of all, I am a female. Iím 54 and Iíve been leaving my body for my entire life. That is what led me to the truth. I know that we humans are the shapers of our destiny, and when I learned what I learned, I knew that nothing could stop me from attaining my dreams.

I learned that space and time are just illusions. A form of measurement concocted by humans, and neither exist. I learned that you cannot die. It is absolutely impossible, and with that knowledge, I lost my fear of death and gained a zest for living, which led to my success.

I learned how we came to be here and why. It is simple. We existed as pure energy and thought, before curiosity got the best of us. We had no use for the five senses, only the sixth, which most of us have lost touch with. We didnít communicate with words. We didnít have bodies to drag around, so there was no such thing as pain. We were warned, like children, not to go this route, but if we decided to delve into this physical, material existence, we would need help, and that was when creation began, through a careful process of intelligent design. We were warned that we would have no recollection of from whence we came, and that to make our way back home would be a tremendous task, but we insisted, and then found ourselves, like deer caught in the head lights, in our new and frightening world.

I guess that is enough for now. I hope I opened a successful dialogue with you. Iíve been keeping all this to myself for so long, and now I feel it is time to tell my story.

Thank you for your interest in this most important subject.

Kim B
