Have You Had an Out of Body Experience?

It’s hard to fathom, if you haven’t experienced it yourself, that you could slip out of your body when half asleep and look down on yourself from the outside. People across the world for centuries have claimed out of body experiences, leaving many to wonder whether it’s neurological, or perhaps instead — spiritual.

Studies Say…

After years and years of out of body experience reports, science is finally starting to take a more serious look into the matter. According to a 2007 study report on a researcher who experimented with inducing out of body experiences, around ten percent of people claim such fantastic experiences. While in some cases this sort of thing can be caused by drugs, it can also come on during near-death experiences or meditation. Some people have even indicated that it can happen during ordinary actions like running around or talking. Amazing, right?

A Connection to the Universe

Well, we do know that out of body experiences are more likely to happen if the person is relaxed mentally and physically. Most people who’ve had them describe themselves as floating above their bodies and observing everything around them from a distance.

So if you’ve ever had such an experience happen to you, you’re certainly not the only one. The phenomenon that’s mystified researchers for years is still happening all over the world, and for many it’s evidence of a soul — an afterlife. If you feel disconnected to your body temporarily, it could indicate a stronger connection to the greater universe, where our souls are meant to go after we die. Most of all, it means we’re still just scratching the surface in learning about our place in this vast realm of space and time — and whatever may lie beyond it.

  1. I was attending a seminar on past lives experiences by Dick Sutphin at the airport in Sacramento CA. I called my cousin who is very spiritual and he told me to be sure to go that he knew of him and I would really enjoy it, he had us relax & go into deep Meditation and go back in our lives and I was a Gladitor in Rome and I had won, I could hear the crowd cheering loudly as I stood with my foot on my oppone’t chest and I haven’t forgot how loud it was, that was several years ago, I’m 75 now and still remember it very clearly, it only lasted for a few seconds but I’ve never forgoten about it.

  2. When I was a child I would beg my parents to take a nap on their bed. I got to do this only once in a while. When I could I would and I would be sleeping and almost like a dream I was in the top edge of the room and could see everything, including the top of my mother’s dresser. Everything I saw, some of which I wasn’t meant to see, I couldn’t see from the floor or the bed. I had told my parents about me looking down on myself, the room, and everything else I saw, and they would brush it off and tell me I was dreaming. This happened many times but never again and no place else ever. I wish I could do that again.

  3. When I was around 8-10 I would have ,what I thought were nightmares.. Didn’t understand what was happening. I seen myself through my own eyes looking down on my self ,as a speck so tiny ..either I was on a desert floor or a non wrinkle sheet. I would see circle coming toward me .as you would through a rock in the water n get ripple effects. Smaller ones nearest me lgr further away. As I look at myself and the ripple effect coming towards me freaked me out !I would wake up saying to my mom something inside of me n my sister would get mad at me . It happened many of time’s .To this [email protected] don’t understand what it meant. It was so vivid.
    When I go into a deep thought or prayer I have the feeling as being in myself as tiny and and surrounded by a shield of a force or circle of lights as the ripples are around me, rather then towards me..
    Very odd .Very disturbing of it’s meaning to this day..I wish I understood…
    Not sure if its a message but I also get premonitions like I been here before. .. Weird..

  5. I was 7 yrs old when I would dream the same dream over and over. At the time I thought it was a nightmare. These dreams would wake me early in the mornings. During my dream I would find myself in the same place standing looking at the ground and it was like ash about. All around there were was smoke or steam coming out from the ground and the atmosphere was a an orange red. As I looked to my right I saw cars on their sides and some upside down. I wondered what happened to this place. I felt and seen this destruction. I walked a few steps towards the cars wanting to see what was on the other side of the cars but I couldn’t make it because I would wake up. In this constant dream I would be in my body and sometimes I would be out of my body. When I was out of my body I had a feeling that I could will myself to go forward and see what was on the other but I never was able to. Then one morning after having this same dream I wondered half asleep if I could go back into this dream. I forced myself back into this dream, woke up and went back again. As a child I practiced going in and out of my dreams. As an adult I can still go back into the same dream over and over if I want. I’ve never heard of anyone who can do this and makes me wonder if there are others. I know my dreams help me in this world which I am grateful. They comfort me at times and they help me to make life choices. Then at times these dreams make me understand who I am or what I need to do. Maybe it’s a hidden skill we have and don’t talk about openly.

  6. When i was a child around the ages of any where from 6 or 8 till About 12 or 13 , only when i was sleeping i would dream of myself flying. All ways looking down. Never flying looking up. I remember teaveling long distances . I was scared the first couple times it happened then as i flew more it was great fun. The people i would meet couldnt understand how i could fly. I didnt know how i did either. Then i learned how to fly standing up and then take off . It was around the time of the first moon landing and walk that Buzz Alldren took . Where he would run and then start to jump . I would do that and the more i jumped the higher i could get till i was at the height i wanted to be and then i wiukd jyst lift my legs and feet and off i would go. I never thought of it as an outer bidy exoeribce though . I just always thought that it was the highly imaginative mind of a young healthy , active childhood up untill now when i read this article. Im 58 years old and im surprised again at myself for the things that i took as something everybody did at some point in their life to thinking that my life was not just a usual American childhood but one of a few that had very special and important differences that made me unique and with special abilities . Esp, not just deaja voo. Feelings gor ithers tgat i took it on as my own and feeling what they felt . Empath. Knowing when something was not right and making the decision to not go there or what ever the situation was at that time. Knowing something was wrong with a friend or family member and then to find out that it was not a good outcome for them. And actually feeling the things and emotions and thoughts of my husband . When he would not be telling me the truth as to his where abouts and his dealings with what was actually going on with him knowing that he was lying and hiw he felt when he woukd tell me thise lies and ir who he was really with . Andvwhen i eoukd tell hom he woukd be dumbfounded. I told him i knew him better than he knew himself . It straightend his ass up after awhile . He realized that he couldnt hide anything from me because i knew what he was thinking pretty much when he’d get a idea in his head and how he was goibg to get out of it . So i can tell you all , life can be a mysterious thing . Scary too sometimes .

  7. I woke up one night and sat up in bed. I was wide awake just sitting there. I went to stand up and all of a sudden I was looking at Earth from space! My 1st initial response was panic. I thought I can’t breathe in space but a split second later I realized I didn’t need to. Then i thought im going to freeze but it wasnt cold and there really is a “fabric” to space. Feels like velvet! I was marveling at my planet. Pictures can never convey the color of our atmosphere. It shimmers! Then the Earth pulsed and I felt so much love. Then it pulsed again and there was profound sadness. Then I was back in my bedroom still in the process of standing up. I literally stood there for a minute wondering how long that trip took. I have not been able to do it again.

  8. I was laying down for a nap, my baby was in her crib in the other room. I worked nights so this nap was during the day. I was out of my body, looking down at myself taking a nap with the sunshine lighting up the room. Right before I woke up, it’s like I was back in my body, just laying there and then someone or something stuck their fingers in my mouth. It was very scary because they did it in a way like, they didn’t like me. Messing with me not in a playful way. Probing all around in my mouth. I bit down so hard on their fingers that I could feel the bone and heard a bit of a crunch. I woke up with a big gasp and sat straight up struck with fear thinking that my baby was laying in bed with me and stuck her fingers in my mouth and I bit them. I realized she was in the other room and I was completely freaked out.

  9. When I was a child I would go out of my bedroom window and feel like I was falling all at once I would be flying high over the house tops or in the stars. Floating,glyding, flying above everything like superman, it was so cool. A few years ago it happened again. I felt like a child again.In my lifetime I have traveled many times.

  10. I’ve had an out of body yet I wasn’t calm . I was very worried about my boyfriend at the time.. He was talking about ending everything up to and including his life. I called him over and over again no answer. I cried and so worried I passed out as I slept I was walking with him as he walked along the road. Described everything he passed. I needed to make sure he was going to be OK. When I woke I was so tired and drained. Though I didn’t see my body I was with him watching over him.

  11. Not sure if it was outer body or not but I could see my self being hurt by something it was hard for me to wake up even though I wasn’t completely asleep. It would happen several times a night

  12. I have experience so many times growing up and now. It used to scare me. Sometimes it is as if I jump into the future for just a few seconds. Or in time.

  13. I had a friend who was native American Indian. He schooled me on the different ways and believes that they have. One of the things he would talk about was astro projection. Where you leave your body knowingly and go where you want or need to go. One afternoon we laid down for a nap and the next thing i new i was soring like an eagle high up in the sky he was holding my hand and flying right beside me. But when i realized i wasn’t dreaming i got startled and instantly was back in my body. I was mad because he should have told me he was going to do that if he had i wouldn’t have been scared. Because it was amazing. I didn’t have trust in him after that because if he could take me on that journey without me knowing he was going to what else could he do? That’s what i call a strong person

  14. Felt myself sliding out the window to get a better look at a crying child on a swing set. When I saw my body I was frightened and said, “No!” I felt my other “self” slam down HARD in my sleeping body. Haven’t had it happen since. I was in my early 20’s.

  15. It use to happen to me when I was a little kid and I use to get really scared when it happened and then I would be back in my body and afraid to let myself get to that place of comfort because that’s when it would happen again I would see myself laying down in my bed but it was like someone was leading me to the hallway outside my bedroom and i felt like I was not alone and it wasn’t a good feeling I was always scared I didn’t understand what was going on .

  16. My soul has left my body to get rid of a bad spirit that was haunting my cousin.. I couldn’t function properly the next day. But the spirit is gone and she’s not sick anymore.. She said she felt me touch her and she knew it was gone

  17. Ye s left my body n traveled 15 moles or so to hospitals where my grandma was. I thought she had passed n no one was telling me n I really had to know if she was still alive. Don’t know how i found her cuz I had never been there before n I was so worried. I sat down on couch n fell asleep n next thing I was n hospitals n found my grandma n she told me she was ok n would be home in few days. She told me to hurry back to my body n to do whatever my body was doing n I would be ok. Someone had moved me from couch to bedroom n I panicked for minute till I found my body n it was laying down n at first couldn’t get back in. Then what my grandma told me helped me n I laid down like my body was n instantly I was back n my body was ok n I felt cold. Buy otherwise I was ok just had no idea what had happened n was scared cuz I knew it wasn’t dream. After my grandma came home she explained what had happened n to not be afraid. Its gift from God she said but not to tell anyone cuz people would think I was crazy. Lol

  18. My out of body experience was near death. I was above my body for only seconds watching as other’s worked to save my life.

  19. 22 years ago after laying my then 6 month old baby down for a nap, I decided to take one too. I was lying on my stomach when I fell asleep. I remember feeling like my heart had stop beating and the next thing I knew I could see myself and my entire bedroom beneath me. I knew instantly I was not in my body anymore. I could even see the click beside my bed and it was 2:13 in the afternoon. I instantly thought ” Oh God please not now” as soon as I had that thought I woke up gasping for air, looked at the click beside my bed and it was still 2:13.

  20. My outer body experience was somebody holding my arms down and my feet and not letting go of me and it scared the hell out of me to where I started praying to God and my mother

  21. I don’t know where we’re going butt I know it’s a good place where are smile doesn’t go down
