At first, as I was lying in bed awaiting sleep, I would feel what I know to be "the vibration." Of coarse, then I was sure it was death coming to get me. This went on periodically for a couple of months. I found if I just rolled over it would stop, and soon I would succumb to sleep. Finally, one night I decided So what? So what if I die, I'm not going to get out of it so... so what if this is it bring it on. I'm not going to roll over this time I'm going to see what happens.
The vibration just kept building and building until Snap! I was at my ceiling flipping end over end! The next thought was get back in there and as quickly as it had happened; It was over. Back in my body my first thought was wow its just laying here so peacefully. Then I was a bit frightened. Frightened by my oblivious distinction between Myself and my body.
At the time, I hadn't read a single thing on O.B.E. Astrology...yes, numerology.....yes, some Tarot, but nothing on O.B.E. I fell asleep that night, and woke up the next day to start a new search. A search for what had gone on the previous night. The memory surfaced the next afternoon as I was riding in the car with my best friend. Oddly enough we were on our way to this house in the country that was said to be haunted. It had been rumored that a man killed his family there. I still don't know if that is true. I got about as far as the drive and couldn't go near the house. I don't know why, but I couldn't that day. We went back months later with a large group of people this time at night. I wasn't comfortable from the start, but after I came out of the house my eyes burned and watered for about 10min., until we left. Everyone thought I was crying, but I wasn't.
Anyway, the day I couldn't go, on the way home it hit me what had happened the night before. I tried explaining the vibrations at that point and could only describe it as an electrical feeling. She mentioned O.B.E. I immediately went to Barnes and Noble and found a book. As soon as I read about the vibration I knew I had found.
