I am hoping that some of you will be able to help me with my problem, but first I will give you a little background on myself. I have been reading, researching and practicing all things metaphysical; astral projection, NDE, OBE, magick, meditation, lucid dreaming, shamanism, etc. for the past year, however I have not yet been successful at any of the practices I attempt.
My question is, quite frequently I find myself to be "stuck" in what seems to me a plane between planes, not fully awake and yet not asleep either. I can usually see through partially open eyes (I assume they must be open since I can clearly see the room around me) but I have vivid hallucinations, hear noises, sometimes voices, see all kinds of things, sometimes forms and shapes from my real surroundings morph into cartoon characters and monsters, sometimes I see people...it varies from experience to experience. The most extreme being truly strange and intense to the fullest extent you could imagine...sometimes rather terrifying, sometimes rather um...how shall I say this, sexual?! However the one thing remains typical throughout all accounts is my feeling "stuck", not being able to awaken myself, becoming quite distraught and at times internally frantic, feeling ripped or forced upon finally awakening or becoming "unstuck" and feeling a terrible pain, like a head ache, for several minutes afterward. There have been times when family members have entered the room unaware that I was not asleep, and I have desperately tried to call to them to no avail, no sound escapes my lips and I am completely paralyzed in my position.
This "phenomenon"(for the lack of a better term) happens mostly when I attempt to sleep during the day time, often if I have overslept simply for the sake of sleeping, or any time I attempt to sleep in my great great grandparents "haunted" house. Sometimes I am perfectly aware that I am "stuck" and make a consious effort to become "unstuck", other times I just "exist" in this strange dream like fantasy world unaware of anything at all until I have awoken. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Hope I was clear enough. Smiley

Hello loveregardless,
   Hmmm... First off, I'm not quite sure what is happening to you.  That is, I cannot pinpoint it exactly.  But what it seems is that you are having astral sight, astral hearing, et cetera.  The 'stuck' feeling seems very closely related to the paralyzed states described in Astral Dynamics.  Have you read it?  Robert Bruce offers some awesome suggestions to overcome this paralysis, and I have a notion that these techniques would work for you too.  If indeed you wish to come out of the 'stuck' state.  There is the possibility that you could use it instead.  Robert Bruce also mentions in his book that you can easily have OBEs from this paralyzed state; it supposedly happens much more easily.  I'm not quite sure about your specific case, but I'll say it's safe to assume you've got a pretty similar case here.  Anyway, I would just recommend reading Robert Bruce's Astral Dynamics.

Cheers,
bmw
