I was about 22 Sunday morning radio on, semi awake but with my eyes still closed...... .........floated up to the ceiling could see but my eyes were still closed, looked down on myself from two angles at the same time, thought i was going to be crushed to the ceiling and at that point 'returned' with a jolt. Whole thing probably lasted 10 seconds.
My OBE was not frightening after the event, and I have even tried to recreate the conditions to have a repeat experience, but without success. I've also had occasional lucid dreaming, whispered voices in dreams ( frightening) and possible premonitions of events good, bad and some as yet not understood.
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain parts of it don't make sense.........
Seeing myself rising from the bed at the same time as seeing me under the covers, both at the same time from a position at the top corner of a bedroom. Being awake but asleep at the same time
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? SEE 4 but very hard to put into words
Was the experience dream like in any way? no .........far more 'real'

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose? No Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure? Yes WOW I'm glad you asked that one ............the ceiling stopped me
Did you become aware of future events? No Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? Uncertain Aware perhaps .it was either carry on and be crushed against the ceiling or panic and return to earth..........I didn't consciously decide the latter but I was scared so maybe that made my decision
Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience? Uncertain I like most people???? experience occasional dreams that seem to relate to events that follow.
Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience? Yes calmer .........almost like i know there is more even if i don't fully believe it
