I have a few I could name but one that really sticks out in my mind.
This happened in 2007: I was taking a nap one day – during the afternoon. The sun was out and shining and I was just taking a few minutes to rest.
I was lying on my bed, on my back. Hands resting by my sides.
I had that tingling feeling I get sometimes when I feel sleep coming on.
I “woke” up, my eyes open and my body almost looking doubled. I could see a translucent copy of my body floating just above my actual body.
I freaked out! I was screaming for help, my legs, arms, and body paralyzed. But I was awake, I could see my body and my room.
Yelling and yelling for someone to help me, but no one came. My family was home though.
Then I saw a woman’s face come up to my face while I was lying there (she was kind of floating above my body) and then she went away.
Finally I fully woke up. I had that feeling of falling (like if you were to fall off something high up). But I was thankful to be awake.
Being naturally psychic and intuitive, I researched and deemed it an out of body experience. It was confirmed as much by a medium I knew.
Last year I told my physician about this experience – which I have since experienced too many times to count. And she said it is also sleep paralysis.
I think it is both. And I think when we are in a state of sleep paralysis, we are in an almost half-sleep state that makes us more susceptible to out of body and spirit-like experiences.
