Hi, I've been having spontaneous out of body experiences as long as I can remember. My earliest major experience was one night when I was in my early teens, drifting off to sleep, and the next thing I knew I was literally rising up off my bed and drifting across the room. It became a regular occurrence and for years I was terrified of it. I had no idea what was going on. I learned early on that if I could just break the paralysis, move a single part of my body, then I could stop it.
I was in my mid 20's when I came across a book on the subject and decided to get over my fear and start experimenting with it. I've had countless experiences, and been to all kinds of places, encountered multiple beings that I have no idea who they were. I went through this for a few years until I was found to have severe obstructive sleep apnea. I had my tonsils out when I was 30, and have slept with a c-pap machine ever since. I'm now 49.
The astral projection ended almost immediately after my surgery, which always led me to believe that I was possibly just dying in my sleep. During my initial sleep study, they counted me stopping to breathe over 500 times in a 6 hr period, so.....
However, in the past few years these experiences have started coming back, and while I'm not doing anything to try to induce them like I used to, I have been embracing them when they do hit, and trying to explore more with them. Trying to gain some of the control that I've lost over the years.
Most of these recent experiences haven't produced much, mostly just flying around before going back in my body. However I had a very specific experience just a couple months ago that had a very profound effect on me. But I have no idea what it meant. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced something similar and might be able to shed some light on it for me.
I had just lied down and closed my eyes when I was immediately hit by the vibrations. It came on very fast. the next thing I knew, I was grabbed and dunked, literally tossed into a giant contained body of water, like a midieval pool. The water felt incredible. When I was under everything was this most beautiful shade of deep royal blue. I could feel the effervescence of bubbles all around me. I could feel the water splashing around me. I was pulled out and the process repeated 3 times. Finally I heard a woman say something like, "That'll do", or "that'll work".... then I was pulled out and laid on the ground, where I was just left there. I was laying on the grass and I think I was leaning up against some sort of old stone wall. There were people going about their daily business off in the distance. The whole place had a "midieval village" type atmosphere. It took me a few minutes before I was finally able to find my way back to my body.
Does anyone have any idea what this was? I can't help feeling that it was something profound, but I just don't know. Nothing has happened since.... All thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for listening!!
