31/05/2011:

After having gone to bed around midnight, I woke up at 4am to use the toilet. A few minutes later I went down to induce an OOBE. My head hissed and violent vibrations ensued. At their peak, I felt as though something was drilling into the back of my head and immediately I thought about the possibility that I was perceiving activity in the pons and medulla oblongata areas of the brain. Congruently, mild rattling, like a constant raspberry, accompanied this. Soon, I became aware of what felt like waves of warmth flowing through my body. I could control this energy kinesis with my mind and set out to appease the vibrational state. After deliberately spending time playing with this state, I decided to separate from the body only to find that I was deeply paralysed. I couldn’t even turn my head let alone employ a method of separation. A moment of contemplation was needed before a brisk motion sufficed.

I stood in a pitch black spatiality and I knew I was in the Phase. I rubbed my hands as this had previously been an effective technique in, not only ’anchoring’ myself to that state, but also, bringing about sight. This act proved to be ineffective on this occasion. Despite the blindness, I could feel the structure of my home interior. I glided downstairs and, unexpectedly, the power of sight came to me. Either everything looked the same as in actuality or structural anomalies were inconspicuous. I touched the banister but didn’t see a hand there. I flew up the stairs and looked at the hallway mirror which was not reflecting anything. As soon as I plunged into it, lights were out again, and, after a few seconds of motioning into the void, I was back in my body.

Vibrations were ongoing and I took this opportunity to re-enter the Phase. It was dark again and I picked a random direction to plunge into. After a speedy voyage into the dark void I came to an opening of dim light, or perceived as such, which led me to stand at the bottom of a staircase. A quick scan of the new surroundings revealed a vast and well lit basement where I was ushered into a full-blown party by people wearing porcelain masks and sporting what appeared to be 18th century fashion. Everything in the basement looked appealling as I swayed in all directions with those pale-faced characters. Oddly, there were chandeliers and disco balls hanging from the ceiling to add to the madness.

To spice up the piquant nature of the experience, I floated up to the ceiling in order to ricochet among the hanging spheres like in a pinball game. Moments later the party died and all the weird ’porcelain people’ were gone. I found a bauble on the floor and made it levitate. I wanted the bauble to remain in mid-air but it kept coming down as though there was a moon-like gravity exerting its influence. I imagined a string tied to it and connecting it to the ceiling in order to prevent it from coming down. The imagined string manifested before me and the bauble was now in mid-air and hanging from the ceiling.

I felt a presence there with me and I couldn’t tell whether it was behind me or next to me. I thought of it as my mother in that place and I’m not sure if this way of thinking was a psychological ’mechanism’ to prevent me from being afraid, although, in retrospect, I suspect so. I do remember feeling that the presence was trustworthy and that I could ask it anything and I did: “Why do you think thoughts appear to manipulate reality here?” - The reply came: “I don’t know, it’s just the way it is.” - I continued to converse with this unseen entity which could have been an aspect of myself, and, as I began to lose lucidity, might have turned into the product or element of a dream. I woke up content because this had been one of my most interesting experiences as of late.

Thanks Summer for sharing your experiences, which must have been over a good length of time.
Excellent writing too, you could write a book using your OOB experiences, then they might make a film of it!  grin
cheers, djed  smiley

I'm glad, and this is exactly the effect I want them to have on people. I want to encourage people to practice OOBE induction. I believe it will enrich their lives and make them happier. smiley

I am writing a book about OOBEs. grin

It is a recorded journal of discovery. It includes experiments which contribute to my personal study of the Phase state (OOBEs/AP/LDs) with a lot of speculation and food for thought.

Apart from using specific terms like "OOBE" and "lucid dreaming", I also employ the more generic term "Phase" which I've adopted from this website of which I'm also a member:

www.obe4u.com.

By the way, one or two of my experiences will feature in Michael Raduga's next book. I've gotta by a hard copy of that one! LOL grin

This seems very familiar to me.  Like I've been in a similar place.  I'm going to look in my journal for something like this.

Please do so! This is what it's all about. It may shed some light on the strange places we visit and the weird beings we meet! cool

Spot on! I tend to be more formal when I right for the book! wink
