Wesley M's Experience
I have had
several experiences now. The first was a Lucid Dream.
My friend and I then started reading up on altered states of mind. I then tried to have an OBE and had a dream that turned into very lucid state where I was floating up and through the window in room and then outside up and through the window of the upstairs neighbor's apartment. I then felt like I was into some kind of dream and than snapped back into the OBE state, only to find myself falling through the floor down into my room again.
I opened my eyes and looked around without a break in consciousness. I have also had some strange Lucid Dreams that seem to be part OBE and part dream. I have just recently had a Lucid Dream where the scene before me was very similar to some place that I know and as I was wondering about this. The scene sort of split open and peeled away leaving the exact place that I had been thinking of. I than realized that I was out of body.
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? Yes. Some vitamins and some food would increase my likelihood to have some experience.
Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes. At times the experiences have left me in a very questioning state of mind.
