MeKenzie Jo's Experience
It was my first OBE. I remember that I was woken by a alarm clock with a lamp flashing (I'm deaf so I use different kind of alarm to wake me up). I was extremely tired so I pushed the snooze button. I fell asleep, suddenly I felt a surge of vibration. It wasn't a big deal as I experienced it before. It was somehow too familiar. Suddenly, I thought of floating out.
Suddenly it followed my thought, leaving me feeling myself going out of my body as if my body was a glove-like for my spirit body. It was a strange sensation. I continued to float toward the ceiling before I was able to see. When my sight sense was turned on, I realized that it was my first conscious obe (I read a book about "Tomorrow" or something like that, I can't remember, but it talked about obe a bit so I thought I'd try and induce it sometimes to see if it's real).
The details were extremely overwhelming. I was in my room... drifting around. Flying was my favorite thing when I become lucid in my dreams so it wasn't not new to me, except that it was more real. I thought about the story that I read that a guy went through the wall. I tried that, I hated that feeling, but it was kinda cool. I felt the texture of the wall, even the window's texture. When I finally got outside. It was dark, but is glowing as if my body was the source of light. I got excited, but somehow I remained calm (a habit I got from lucid dreaming).
I thought of flying higher and higher so I could visit my twin sister (was 5 weeks old when she died... we both were born 3 months prematurely). Suddenly, I heard... (I never hear anything in my real life, but all of a sudden I could hear). I heard someone behind me, saying in the most beautiful voice... "You know that you can travel from one place to other instantly like winking your eyes. You don't have to fly up to your destination." (something like that). Immediately my thoughts were racing with, "Wow, I can hear... wow.."
I was overwhelmed with fears of unknown since I was able to hear that I was pulled violently back into my body and I jerked. I woke up immediately, it was only 5 minutes that passed by! I was in shock! I woke up, feeling so refreshed that I didn't have to push my snooze button again! I got up... I couldn't believe that obes are actually real. I began to research more about those... :)
