I recently got a dream interpretation book and so i looked through and found this title i looked through that and wanted to know have you felt that before if you don't know what this is search it up on google or something.

Me personally i almost did i felt my "conciousness" rising and out of panic i was never going to return panicked and lost the feeling oh and by the way it was in the middle of school lol.

(I just made this thread for opinions on this matter and your own experiences of this)

I recently got a dream interpretation book


I'm about to spoil everything so if you want to learn how to interpret dreams yourself don't read this next part:

Make the dream has vague as you can is the most important step. Once you do that you have essentially interpreted the dream.

-----


I'm not too big on Out of Body Experiences, given that there is quite simple answers for why such events seem to happen.

Though if we are talking about weird sleeping events, I one time was laying my head on my pillow and the moment my head touched the pillow I was waking up the next day, almost as if I was doing a sit up.
This was particularly weird because it normally takes me quite a while to fall asleep, and I wasn't any tired that day than I normally am. But, this is a story for a different sort of thread, just something I find curious, but nothing that I would relate to anything spooky.

Well to combat vagueness this book is really general on dreams and such.

I have many issues on fully believing people that claim they have "out of body experiences". For one thing, almost all can be explained with a few natural phenomena. One is Sleep paralysis; a phenomena that occurs when the brain essentially wakes up and the body is yet to do so. This results in people sometimes unable to open their eyes and feeling like they are floating or flying. After a few minutes it wears off and you can move again.
I also do not believe in ghosts or such, so that department is not valid in my eyes.
Just my two cents,
Cole

Out of body experiences are something that intrigues and interests me which I constantly find conflicting between true and false. I believe that they are something that only rarely happens when someone approaches death, obviously they sound like complete bull to you and me, but as I researched into them I learned about stories of people having them. One story that struck me was about a woman in hospital on her deathbed essentially and she claimed she had had an OBE and kept telling the staff about a red shoe on the roof, they thought she was going mad and blamed her medicine but later in the afternoon staff went up to the roof to find an actual red shoe and that woman never went to the roof. My mind remains undecided on wether I believe all these stories.

I myself have too tried with no luck, I believe it is extremely rare for an OBE to occur in purpose as your mind has to be put in such an extreme situation such as an approaching death. I'm not genius I am merely debating possibilities.

My book said it can happen by relaxation to be general but it still is pretty hard.

I tried it during my mystic period (11-14 yo).
I read so many books about magnetism, hypnosis, levitation, telepathy, spirits, etc.
The closest I've ever been to do it was by doing deep relaxation which give you the impression of floating somehow.
If you're into that stuff you might want to read a series of book wrote by Lobsang Rampa but take it with a grain of salt.

SSTG cool deep relaxation sounds real nice.

Also I think I should have added lucid dreaming in the title and description oh well.
