It happened during a time in my life where I left an abusive aunt who only favored her kids. She was angry with me for graduating high school. I left to move to my mother and away from the aunt's abuses. It was the aunt that raised me up and she always had some sort of mental illness where she frequently talked to herself and only whipped me with wire and not her kids. Seemed like she always looked for the littlest things to attack me over.
I went running one morning with the intent to have an OBE since I read about Robert Monroe's experiences and what he wrote about fascinated me. I slept on my side and closed my eyes and imagined myself swinging back and forth as if on a hammock and then all of a sudden I hear, feel and see a white flash in my head area. I can then see the entire room in broad daylight as there was plenty of sunlight coming into the room. I feel this incredible sweet heavenly blissful cool energy. It is a state that I did not even want to leave. I was like more alive then I currently am. It is like the life of this world is a dream compared to that state I was in.
The interesting thing is that I did not even know that I had intention of achieving OBE, It is as if the memories of my body and intentions remained back in my body(my physical brain during my normal life can clearly remember all the details of that other realm I visited)--and I couldn't even speak a language in my own head. Normally I speak English or Somali to myself in my own head when I am thinking, but in this state those languages didn't exist. I looked at my arm and I try moving it, but I see and feel a phantom arm move. It is as if I am some sort of body that is super imposed on my regular body but in another dimension. I regret not exploring and flying or doing other fun things people do when they OBE. I am pretty sure that is what they call the real time zone that I projected into and I haven't had an opportunity to attempt it again for a decade now, but I do occasionally get sleep paralysis. The way I know that Out of Body experiences are very real is that I saw through my own eye lids many times in the past while I slept. I even heard a snoring one time while I slept in a dark room, but I was conscious and I am pretty sure that was my body snoring.
Back to the OBE experience, I was confused as to what was going on after I waved my phantom arm and I tried hard to exit that state and I found myself awake in my body. Even though that state was peaceful and tranquil and blissfull-I still for some reason got urges to get out of it. Since that time I noticed heightened psychic abilities and I think they came from the OBE. I found out that I can know who is calling or what song is about to start playing before they actually call or play the song (don't know if it has to do with picking up radio waves before they arrive to the tuner or phone). I also noticed that I get jobs and stuff easily when I don't make an effort.
The sleep paralysis I often get at night happen when I change my sleep cycle or
when I specifically want to try an OBE, but that vibrations stage is scary and I
often see myself coming out of it.
If scientists can somehow hook some stuff up to me or use electromagnetic
sensors or something during this sleep paralysis/vibrations stage--I am sure
they can discover something interesting.
At the time of your experience was there an associated life-threatening event? No
Was the experience difficult to express in words? Yes The blissful tranquil peace is something hard to describe. One has to feel it to know.
At what time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and alertness? After that bang of flash in my head, the only way I can describe it is a big bang of white light in my head and then seeing through my eyelids. After that experience I definitely believe we are beings in a multi dimensional Universe and each dimension has its own rules. The body is just a shell and fear and anger are just things in the physical body.
How did your highest level of consciousness and alertness during the experience compare to your normal everyday consciousness and alertness? More consciousness and alertness than normal More alive than normal. This world and body is like being half alive or half awake.

How accurately do you remember the experience in comparison to other life events that occurred around the time of the experience? I remember the experience more accurately than other life events that occurred around the time of th It is not something one can easily forget. If I do end up getting it again though I will remember I had it in the past.
Discuss any changes that might have occurred in your life after your experience: After that experience I was robbed while waiting for a bus because I did not have a car at the time and the Robbers for some reason were not able to find my Wallet at all. I know I had it and it had $200 in it and I put a verse from the book of my religion in the Wallet which may have helped keep it hidden from Robbers. 2 men were not at all able to find my wallet, I still find that hard to believe that it happened, but anything is possible.
My experience directly resulted in: Large changes in my life
Did you have any changes in your values or beliefs after the experience that occurred as a result of the experience? Yes Yes, now I know that we are all conscious and in higher dimension reality.
Do you have any psychic, non-ordinary or other special gifts after your experience that you did not have before the experience? Yes As described previously, some telepathy. When I let something go, it doesn't mean my higher self let it go. I believe we are all interconnected on a higher level of reality and bad things we do on this earth to people don't go unnoticed and some form of justice happens to wrong doers on earth. This justice comes from a higher side via a higher reality.
Are there one or several parts of your experience that are especially meaningful or significant to you? That OBE was Epic, I want to get it again, soon I will go on a light run and when my physical body gets tired, I will attempt it in a bright lit room like I did back in that time.
Have you ever shared this experience with others? Yes I shared it with my sister and she thinks I am crazy so I don't tell people anymore. Others in their physical body can't comprehend such stuff is possible so will assume either that I was dreaming or am crazy or lost my mind, and since they hear of such a thing as people going nuts etc, they will think I have become one of those people. It is one of those things that I just don't talk about except to people on here in NDERF. Ones that have had NDE's in the past will understand me for sure, but people who are even in my religion and believe in an afterlife will still think I am nuts even though they believe in an after life. It is kind of funny how they can believe in a spirit higher self and yet when they hear a story of an out of this world experience by someone--they will label that person mental or something. They contradict themselves.
Did you have any knowledge of near death experience (NDE) prior to your experience? Yes I read some in the past. But Robert Monroe was the reason why I decided to try an OBE and it worked.
What did you believe about the reality of your experience shortly (days to weeks) after it happened: Experience was definitely real As said above experience was beyond real. Pretty sure scientists can detect something by people who can claim OBE so science can once and for all know that there is a deeper level of reality--heck I think they already know. Look at the spookiness at a distance that Einstein and other physicists are puzzled about. Look at the many people that report of thinking of a person before they get a call from that person, or sensing something happened to a relative and they later find out relative was injured or something. Lots of proof and evidence in the world.
What do you believe about the reality of your experience at the current time: Experience was definitely real same as above

Have your religious beliefs/spiritual practices changed specifically as a result of your experience? Uncertain The experiences match what my religion talks about.
