English is not my first language so bare with me.
It started out with my intention to project, I came from running and was feeling relaxed and an inner happy peaceful feeling.
I took a shower did some stretching, put a light tape on my mouth to help it relax.
All of the reading I did on OBE's would never prepare me for what was to happen.
I lied down on my right side with my left hand between my thigh and my right arm in front of me, sort of a fetus position.
I had never been more relaxed in my life. I closed my eyes and imagined myself swinging from side to side on a hammock, after a few minutes I felt saw and heard a bright white flash in my head accompanied by a bang sound.
After that, I could see the sunlit whole room more clearly and more real than before and this enormous feeling of bliss was all around me and my eyes, it was a cool heavenly feeling that is indescribable. I totally forgot I wanted to project so I thought I was still awake in my physical body, I tried moving my arm which I can clearly see, but I felt and saw this transparent arm waving, it was phantom like.
When I looked around the room my eyes felt like water, they were light in weight. I became confused and shocked at why my arm wasn't moving and I heard a lady's voice calling my name, I thought someone came in the house so I tried my best to wake up, after struggling for a few minutes I managed to wake up rested relaxed and refreshed. I later found out their was no one in the house and came to the conclusion that the voice was not physical.
The peaceful state of bliss which I experienced and would give anything to experience again confirmed that the experience was real because this same state of bliss is mentioned in numerous parts in the books, Bible, Quran etc.
In the following months of that experience and during many terrifying sleep paralysis experiences at night, I noticed that I felt more energized and happy and some people would stare at me when I am on the bus and in an elevator, I believe they could sense the energy radiating from me.
I also found out that when I wanted something really badly and just forgot about it or thought that I couldn't get it, I would find it when I least expected it, for example I was working down in the mall of America underground shipping and receiving dock, the loading unloading of the trucks made me very dehydrated and I wanted to get something to drink but the nearest fountain was couple of floors up near the shopping complexes, It was a long walk and I just thought I might as well wait till my shift is over, on my way back, near the truck I was unloading I saw an unopened 12 pack of Hawaiian punch, the chances of that laying their in my path with all the people and trucks coming and going is very slim.
I knew someone had dropped it, but I believe it wasn't coincidence.
experiences and countless other spiritual phenomenon I experienced hint to an
underlying reality and that there is more than the physical senses can detect.
