From my teen age, when i was getting in bed and was very tiered, after about 15-20min i was feeling sometimes a strange electrical shock in my body and a hard heart beating spinning inside my head.
In the first time, i was totally scared and pray for some seconds until i woke up. In time, this happened to me several times, especially, when i was afraid for something in my sleep and i was trying to woke up. I used of it and didn't pay attention when it happened me. In November 2003 i read about astral projection (OBE). I tried to induce an OBE without success.
In December 2003 i succeed to have an OBE. It was very clear and i had a very clear mind. It lasts for just some seconds but i remember i was on my room, without moving. My only fear was not to lose a "bond" that i felt in my heels with my body. I behold a table that i have in my bedroom. It was empty. After some seconds i believe, i woke up. I saw the table and it was full of books and cafe glasses. It was strange. My emotion was very clearly not a dream. I told it to a friend of mine who does reiki yoga etc. He told me that i may have seen my room in another time.
In February 2004 I had a same experience. This time, i remembered to count some iron parts that they are permanently in my bed. As OBE lasts I count 6 guardrails. When i woke up i count 5 guardrails! After this experience, i stopped work on trying OBE.
