Ever since I was a kid, this happens to me in a very rare times. maybe once or a year or so. I feel every part of my body is 10x heavier, my arms, legs, butt, torso, and the whole body. I feel like I weight a ton. It really feels odd, and I just either try to fall asleep or get up and shake it off. the only thing I could come up with is health boards and medical help, which is useless! i don't like western medical advice because it doesn't explain anything. "it just happens, and we don't know why". so I was wondering if anyone here knows what this thing is. this is all i could find when it comes to spiritual answer

http://www.healthboards.com/boards/sleep-disorders/247305-body-feels-heavy-when-falling-asleep-help.html

maybe i need to get back into meditating every day. i don't know.. i haven't done OBEs in a while, and they come and go on their own if I don't practice. too busy trying to find ways to get money and get abundance atm. OBEs is the last thing on my mind at this point in my life. but I'm still interested. just finished an OBE book over the summer. but anyway. if anyone with some expeirence with this issue, i'd like to hear your input. thanks.

I too went to a Health Forum for answers after a quite adventurous 3 day event back in 2011. This board was "Webmed.com". I made a post there with near the same symptoms. After about a month, a member there mentioned the AstralPulse.com forums, so I came here and finally found my answers.

 The sensation you are feeling is known as the "lead blanket" and is a symptom/signpost of Sleep Paralysis. We experience SP while becoming consciously aware spontaneously either starting to or returning from a shift in consciousness, otherwise known as a projection.

 These threads here will help you understand more about this phenomenon: http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_out_of_body_experiences/everything_you_could_ever_want_to_know_about_sleep_paralysis-t38734.0.html

I came up with a few SP hits when searching for this, but this is why I'm skeptical. how is this a sleep paralysis if I don't ever exit my body? i just feel really really heavy and it's a really freaked out feeling. it makes uncomfortable and almost nauseous. how to exit the body once you experience these sensations? I'd love to get back into OBEing, but i just don't have the energy or time. one thing that works is napping and then going back to sleep visualizing. but i got insomnia so falling asleep is not the easiest thing to do for me. marijuana helps but i been doing it a lot lately and need a break... thanks for your reply, though. i'm gonna read both of the threads you linked.

Hmm. let's see, on one hand you want to know why it's occurring and how to use it to project, but then you say "I don't have the energy or time". It sounds like you are fighting yourself here.

 I experience this "lead blanket" feeling very shortly after I close my eyes. It means that you are almost immediately losing your focus on your physical body, but you then are losing your conscious awareness and are falling asleep. You are already half way there, the only thing you need to work on is "keeping your awareness".

 There are some great stickies to be found in this section to help you with just that:http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_consciousness-b30.0/

 Lastly, you get out of this skill or art what you put into it. If you can't find the energy or time, then you shouldn't expect favorable results.
