Just a brief background on myself first. Last year I started having spontaneous vibrations at night. I figured out what they were since I've had a history of sleep paralysis over the years. Never had any interest in OBE. I have been taking small baby steps with this because of the fear and uncertainty of it all. I've learned mostly from following different forums over the months and the only book I've read is Astral Dynamics (cuz the older one is free online LOL). I usually avoid dealing with this most nights by sleeping on my stomach but then there are times when I wake up and really can't fall back asleep and then it seems unavoidable. Mainly I've had visions and a couple instances of being out of my body but not really because I want to. I still don't really have a desire to get out and walk around my house at night. I don't even like to do that when I'm awake! I have had a few lucid dreams too and feel more comfortable with those.
Anyway, last night I woke up, couldn't fall asleep, vibrations come and I decide to try to slip into a lucid dream and it worked. The scene I ended up in seemed pretty boring so I mustered up the courage and said " I want to speak to a teacher" because I want to learn more about all this. I phased out of that scene, got vibrations again, went through a dark earthy looking tunnel type thing, then kinda swirled around in a dream like cartoonish state for a second or two (reminded me of Disney's Fantasia) and ended in a room with a skeleton-ish thing sitting in a bed. I just thought it was weird not scary (I'm remembering to stay calm and send love to everything
). It seemed pretty unusual and it was talking but I couldn't hear it very well and I said "volume louder" (LOL) and it didn't work. I decided to leave and decided I'd try to go to Hawaii. Phased out, felt vibrations, next thing I arrive underwater looking at fish and thought it was so cool that I didn't have to breathe. Then I actually was chatting with a few people on the beach for a minute or so. I found myself very attracted to this person and decided I'd better leave before I do something stupid since I don't really know what's going on. Phased out, vibrations, etc. a couple more times in a couple more scenes till my husband woke me up.
I felt almost ecstatic like i had done a LOT at all once and I was also amazed that I felt rested when I woke up because my body had actually been sleeping. Cool!!
So what was all of that? Is WILD same as astral projection? Is that what I was doing? And can anyone explain why I get vibrations each time in between? There are many more questions swirling but I'll leave it at that.
I do have to add (since I'm taking the time to post anyway) that the last time I had a lucid dream I chose to go to my favorite beach chairs in Hawaii and when the scene started focusing in I saw a green figure (ET) in the chair next to mine so I left right away and woke up. ET- related things have popped up in my visions once or twice and I'm a bit disturbed by all of that.
Anyway I appreciate any input. This forum is great!
