Interesting you mention this.

I had an experience just last  weekend where I couldn't get to sleep but suddenly from behind my eyelids I realised the room was bright. I got out of bed and there was this bright light in the center of my room. The first thing I did was try to fly.. couldnt. So I turned on the light, looked at my hands and thought "what the faark?". By this point the light had turned off.

Before that happened I also saw bright lights in my window behind my curtains.

And my grandad had died the day before... Maybe he came to say hello Tongue

I have no idea. But you reminded me of something that happened a year or so ago - very similar. I was very into projection attempts, and at the time dear hubby was away on a trip and I was alone home with the little ones. I was attempting projection before bed, fell asleep and woke with a jolt to hear the smoke alarm going off. Scared the poop out of me.  I went to the hallway, the alarm stopped after fifteen seconds or so, I was shaking and went back to bed.  (there was no smoke, so I figured it had shorted or something.) Neither kid woke up. I figured it was because they sleep deeper or something. It never occured to me that the event might have been non-physical.

Next morning, I figured I needed to change the batteries. When d.h. got home he told me that I didn't need to - because it is wired into the house.

I was puzzled. It hasn't happened since.  The few people I have asked can't explain why the alarm might have gone off like that - It's a little mystery.

I'm not saying that we experienced the same thing, but there sure are similarities. Who knows?

The other strange sound phenomenon I had definitely was projection-related - I was trying very hard one night to project, really really hard. Holding the awake/asleep line as tight as I could; as long as I could. At one point I heard a muffled explosion that shook the house. My first thought was that an atomic bomb had detonated somewhere, it was like an audible wave/boom and scary as ####.  I mean LOUD.  I woke up and went to ask dh what the #### that had been - of course he hadn't heard a thing.

Weird stuff happens with these explorations! I find it pretty exciting, to think that it really hints at a greater type of existence. (I'm pretty fed up with what passes for existence in the physical world! But coupled with the idea of something greater, the depth of meaning really increases even IN the physical world.)

So, what's the 6 oclock alarm method? My early morning experiences are usually distinct from the middle of the night stuff, so I am curious what this method entails.

Not to dwell on the alien abduction thing but during the ones where I was really aware of what was happening to me I would see bright lights flashing into my room from outside. I would also hear a loud honking sound like a submarine alert signal. I have also heard the loud explosion like sounds when I come back from an obe that my children don't seem to hear. I think it's got to do with transiting back... sort of like the spirit breaking the sound barrier:)
Many times I will get audible voices that call my name or give me some pretty awesome statements, warnings. Sometimes I recognise the voice as my fathers other times I still know who it is but just can't place them. I feel they are a past life connection or a spirit helper. I think the neatest one was my boyfriend who had a sound like a watch alarm going off. It started in his house and he couldn't find the source. He took off his watch and got the recorder out then sat in the car with the window rolled up... still the noise. I can over shortly after that and I could hear the noise. We have it on tae but could never find the source that continued in the house, outside and in the car.

Astral Tricks!  Somebody, somewhere has a great sense of humour.  Although if I heard my smoke alarm go off, I wouldn't be laughing I can tell you!

Just so you guys know, last night I brought the topic up again (actually I think my mother brought it up as a joke, I can't really remember it was pretty late).

Anyway, my father told me he also heard the alarm go off; he was the only member of my family that I hadn't asked the morning after the incident. He had already left for work and I didn't get a chance.

He recounted how he woke up in the middle of the night (or whatever time it was) to hear the alarm go off. His first thought was "No way!!!! I'm not getting up, it can't be, it's still dark outside." That is, he thought it was his alarm. After a few moments he did realise it wasn't his, and then thought that is was mine. But then, coupled with the darkness outside and the different sound of the alarm, he did realise it was the smoke alarm.

I asked him which alarm he heard, and he told me; the same one I heard, just outside my door.

So now both my father and I heard the mystical smoke alarm. His wife (my mother) who was lying *next to him* did not wake up and didn't hear the alarm at all. The same issue was apparent with my little brother and sister, who were both sleeping in their rooms next to mine, ie. *less than five metres* away from the alarm. They both sleep with their doors open so there were absolutely no obstructions between them and the smoke alarm (I did have my door shut).

Well, that's my little update to the message, so now I'm off.

( Not too sure if this is the right forum for this, but here goes . . . )

I'm pretty new to AP and OBEs, I've only had one, maybe two, projections so far - I was trying to get to sleep . . . but that's another story. However I already no a lot about the Astral, etc. and I have quite a sum of experience with lucid dreams.But, what I'm actually writing here about is a recent "phenomena" that occured to me - last night in fact. I was trying a new projection method I had found yesterday arvo, the 6:00 AM Alarm method. Didn't work (of course, I didn't expect it to for the first few tries), but I ended up having about five fully lucid dreams.
After awaking awaking after one of the dreams (I woke up after each), I was recounting it and also trying to settle myself back into bed. About a couple minutes after I had awoke, the *smoke alarm* went off from just outside my bedroom door - and there is actually a smoke alarm there, for you guys out there. It lasted about 10 seconds, and my initially thought was "OH! FIRE!" but after it stopped I lay in bed trying to smell for smoke. I didn't find any, so I decided to check for myself.
One of the things that caused me to do this is because it didn't seem that any of my family was awake . . . ? I opened the door and lo and behold, no fire! Not a single spark or flame and not a single wiff of smoke.
After all my reading into AP and all that, one of my first thoughts (of course, after the "what the hell?" thought . . .) was "Ahh . . false awakening!" So I checked, my hands wouldn't melt, I couldn't fly, etc.
So I ended up going back to bed, and woke up in the morning. Of course, first thing, I asked my family if they heard the alarm. None said yes. This intrigued me - UNDERSTATEMENT!!!!! I considered the possibilities. I definitely wasn't dreaming; I had checked. Then it hit me - I must have been out-of-body! Something like that happening was almost . . . logical, on the astral.
Later that day though, I realised that couldn't be the case either. Otherwise, my hands would have been able to melt, and I would have been able to fly, too. I pondered this all through school, and I finally came to a solution. I mean, I didn't know if it could be so, so that's why I'm writing here. Here's my idea: astral hearing. Hey, for all I know, this concept could have already been discovered, but I'm not sure so I'm writing anyways. Astral hearing. You're on the physical, but you can here what's happening on the Astral. Kinda like Astral sight, but . . . not (lol).
I also have *symptoms* that could lead to this being a theory. Yeah, we're actually getting somewhere! The morning of the day before, my eyes popped. You know, that thing you get when you go up in altitude (like when a plane takes off). But it was a little different. It *felt* like my ears were popped, but I could still hear properly, ie., the sounds didn't sound 'far away' or anything. The other thing was that anything I tried to get rid of it didn't work. This 'popped' feeling stayed with me for more than a day. So, that is, it was still with me when I heard the smoke alarm. And I *DID* hear it, I didn't just imagine it or anything. I distinctly remember hearing a smoke alarm. THE smoke alarm outside my bedroom door.
Well, that's it. That's my theory. Astral hearing. Tell me what you guys think. Is it a reasonable idea? WAS I out-of-body . . . WAS I dreaming afterall? I'd like to know.
