Hey there. I think you're talking about my thread, where my accidental astral projection definitely scared the bejeezus out of me.
Okay, so I'm new at this, but all the characteristics my projection had are things that Erin Pavlina had too when she first started projecting.
The similarities are: excessive vibration in body, loud ringing in ears, presence of entities in room (one tried to get me out of my body, idk if it was good or bad presence), and sleep paralysis.
My article about the experience is here

Your experience sounds like something in between maybe. It sounds more like a nightmare than projecting, honestly. While it was scary, I didn't have any trouble breathing, nor did I feel violated by anything.
I tried moving during the projection and felt my "spirit" hand move, though I couldn't see it. It was very odd. I tried to get out of my body and almost did, but it was so difficult that I couldn't. My eyes were closed, but I could still see somehow.
It's so intensely different than a dream. It's been happening all my life but I only just realized what it is. The reason that I say what you experienced may not be astral projection is that every time it happens to me, it happens in the exact same way.
Super intense vibrations, loud loud humming, and sleep paralysis. Given that Erin talked about the exact same things, it seems like this is characteristic of astral projecting.
It may be that other people project differently though. I can't be for sure, as I haven't explored it very much. Did you hear any ringing in your ears or super intense vibrations?

It feels very unnatural and uncomfortable. Always be sure that your physical body is getting fresh air, since if it is breathing stale air, it might cause the astral body to have difficulty synchronizing. Don't just rely on a duct system, try to have a pin crack at a window for direct air from the outside if possible.
But don't confuse the lack of synchronization of the two bodies with a bad experience which happen at the same time. In other words, if someone comes there and scares you while that is happening, the two factors of the lack of synchronization and the scaring are actually separate.
Like if you go up to your door at night and then a robber appears there. The night time and the robber are actually two separate issues, even though the robber would take advantage of the darkness of the night.
Hey, that's a really good metaphor. It clears up some of my scariness around projecting.. thanks.
