| | Close to an OBE - I think
Last night I had an interesting experience.
I was asleep and dreaming. Not sure if it's relevant, but in the dream I was walking into this scary haunted house, and I remember saying to myself, "I won't be scared anymore. I'm going to face these fears." Facing my fears is something that's been on my to-do list lately, so the dream makes sense.
Anyway, I started experiencing "the vibrations" in the dream and I think at that point I became lucid. I became aware of my body in my bed and I could somewhat see my room.
I was definitely not totally awake or fully conscious, it was more of a in between state. At that point I decided I'd try to "get out." So I attempted to sit up. I remember being somewhat successful at it, but it felt like rubber bands or something were attached to me. The farther I got the more resistance I felt, and then I kinda "snapped" back down onto my bed. I don't remember being scared or anything. It was more like "oh yeah, I know what's going on here! let's see if i can pull this off."
Then I think I woke up fully after that.
So I dunno. Coulda been a dream I guess. Does this sound like I was close to an OBE? Is there always some kind of resistance at first?
