This is my first post.
It's Sunday, 11:00am.
Between 08:00am and 10:00am I've had my first OBE and my first Lucid Dream!
Kind of incredible, I'm still amazed and dizzy!
First a little background, I discovered OBEs, The Phase and Lucid Dreaming less than a month ago.
Since then became very interested on the topic, watched lots of videos a read lots of books about it.
I spent a serious amount of hours trying to induce an OBE through direct methods such deep relaxation and trance inducing, sometimes using Binaural Beats as aid.
I only got to the meditative altered state and light sleep paralysis.
I discovered "The Phase" during this time and I loved the Indirect Methods presented, but never had the chance to try them out, due to plenty rude awakenings.
Until this morning.
I went to bed really late as I was out with friends, it was almost 04:00am.
Woke up around 08:00 and I moved around I little bit, I thought to give the Indirect Methods a shot anyway.Phantom Wiggling, Swimming, Visualization, Phantom Wigg....it works!!!
I feel my arm rising up more and more, then I know it's time to separate and I give input to the body to stand up.
Whoa!!! A sort of adrenaline energy rush pervades my body, the heart's beating real fast, I LOVE IT!!!
I raise my legs, my arms, but my upper torso and my head are stuck!
Can't move it, I clearly understand it's not a matter of forcing it with strength, feels like I'm stuck in granite.
Meanwhile, I realize I'm COMPLETELY CONSCIOUS
, this is really blowing my mind, it is 100% conscious reality, as real as me typing this right now.
I look around but it's dark, I close my eyes and think "Levitate", I wait some seconds and then open my eyes, I see a shadow on the ceiling that really looks like me floating, but no, it isn't.
I understand that I'm still stuck in bed, so I demand "Light" to see better but nothing happens.
I then get just a little anxious, at that time I didn't have the lucidity to think about some alternative solutions to stand up completely, so I relax thinking about going back to my body.
There I am, woke up, and I'll never be the same!
Shadow was real tough, it really looked like a man floating, could a shadow be more on point than this?
I'm truly impressed, this experience really felt like complete reality, that was my room and I was THERE
partially out of my body, it was so real that I could spend a life there.
After this great experience I managed to fall asleep again and even had a my fist Lucid Dream!!!
I was in my house talking to my brother on the stairs, half way to the first floor.
All of a sudden there was a shift and I found myself talking alone, my brother was now downstairs talking to his girlfriend and my mother.
I see him looking at me talking by myself and saying "You're a weirdo"
So I realized, "Well, that's strange, I'M DREAMING"
, just like that consciousness came and I immediately thought to fly out of my house and so I did.
I jumped and propelled through the ceiling, through the first floor, but...got somehow stuck again and found myself in complete darkness floating still.
Unfortunately, a little bit scared, I started thinking that I was somehow susceptible to potential attacks form "entities" (reading about them all over the Internet does not help one bit). I wasn't panicking, I had more a fierce type reaction as I imagined blowing a crazy energy explosion from the inside to protect me.
Then I wanted out.
So, I find myself woke up going out of bed, really anxious I started touching anything to prove is was solid and that I really awoke, everything was solid but I didn't feel right, so as I move a little bit more inside my room I suddenly woke up AGAIN
, this time for real, my cat is sleeping at the foot of the bed and I'm nice, calm and relaxed.
It was a false awakening.
I loved this Lucid Dream experience, but it wasn't anywhere as vivid as the induced OBE, it was more like just being conscious in a dream, it felt more a projection of my subconscious, as the first one was a mind blowing reality feel, so real it doesn't even seems possible.
This is the FIRST
attempt of Indirect Techniques with proper conditions so really can't thank enough Michael and his method, needless to say I already feel addicted to this but I'm definitively too excited to sleep again, so I'm really looking forward to the next experience.
Thank you for reading this, I hope I gave out the "feel" of the experience.
If someone has any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate the help, it was a really intense morning but I think I held up fine out there, I wish I didn't demand to go back to my body both times and found a solution instead, but it wasn't really a conscious decision, it was more a instinctive reaction.
I also wonder if the Lucid Dream was triggered by the induced OBE, as I'm not a "natural" when it comes to this.
