My first OBE happened when I was traveling the country after college. My twin brother and I had bought a small trailer and traveled the country with some friends who make a living detailing motor coaches.
Anyway, one night while I was trying to go to sleep I began to feel an extremely faint buzzing through my body. At first it was a comfortable thing. Then, as the buzzing got more intense, it started to get a little scary. I could have shaken it off and gotten up, but I was curious and decided to sit it out and see what happended. The buzzing seemed to start to harmonize and my body began feeling like it had very small ripples of energy rolling through it. Very small ripples at first, then these seemed to coalesce into large ripples until it felt as if my body had 2 or 3 waves gently rolling though me. After the waves seemed to get to a point where my entire body was in sync I got the sensation of sliding headfirst off my bed downwards. Curious, I continued to just go with the flow.
At the time I had an idea of what happened next, but I never wrote it down and have forgotten the details. I do remember being escorted by a couple “entities” of some sort, one on each side of me. I was being taught about the way things are and the way they are going to be. It finalized with a tour of the material universe. The last thing I remember was overlooking the entire cosmos as the two entities showed me a final lesson. I do not remember what it was, but remember it being significant. Then, I found myself floating above my body back in my trailer. I decided not to go back to my body and instead decided to “fly” through the rest area we were staying at. After what seemed about 15 minutes, I returned to my body and sat up. I sat for awhile pondering what just happened and at the time wrote it off as an extremely real dream. After more experiences with OBE’s some ten years later, I now know what it was. The memory of details have faded unfortunately through the years.
My OBE’s later were of a slightly different nature. I had begun working on astral projecting out of curiosity and became convinced I could do it. My OBE’s usually happen without notice. I wake up from a nap or in the middle of the night buzzing. My mind feels slightly different and I know I am in the right mode. Its weird to describe. For all intents and purposes you feel you have woken up, but there’s something different about it.
I know I am buzzing and am in the astral mode, now is the challenge of getting out of my body. My body holds me like a magnet. I can get my hands out, thats not a problem. I wave them in front of my face and confirm that its my astral hands. I have difficulty seeing them, but when I shake them a bit, I can see their outlines a little better. Now, I try to get my head up. My head comes out with some resistance, but it came out. Now I have my chin down near my chest and I’m gonna try and sit up. I try and try, but my chest and stomach are not budging. Then with more effort, my chest comes free, but my stomach, no matter how hard I try, will not release. OK, this isn’t working. Instead of sitting up and trying to get out, I’m gonna try swinging my feet off the bed and kinda roll out sideways. That works! Some resistance, but for the most part, it worked. I stand up. I’m completely free of my body.
I walk around my bed. Its hard to see, my vision is kinda like tunnel vision, only what I’m concentrating on is in focus. I walk to the bedroom door. I decide to try and walk through it. At first there’s slight resistance, but as I start to make it out the other side, it gets easier and I’m through. Wow, this means I can go through walls, windows, whatever. As I walk thru the house, getting further away from my body, I can feel my consciousness slipping back to my body. Its hard now to keep my focus. I can feel it all slipping. Briefly, I feel I’m in two places at the same time. I can no longer keep my concentration and I slip back into my body and lay there awake. The buzzing comes back after about 20 seconds and it all starts again. Sometimes this will happen only once, sometimes I’ll get 5 or 6 OBEs in one night. Most of them are similiar to this.
