174) OBE During my Hospitalization
April 23, 2012
During the course of my prolonged hospital stay, I had had a series of lucid dreams and even one OBE that I can recall. Unfortunately, being in the hospital environment, being woken quickly and without recorder or even paper available at all times, the amount of recall is quite limited. In addition, due to the need for some very strong mind-altering pain medicines, not all dreams were coherent and able to be described.
The lucid dreams I had during this stay were ones where I knew I was dreaming, yet did not feel in control (likely due to the medicine). I remember one being in a ship, watching the waves roll, thrilled with how big they were getting. I was never fearful, even at one point where I felt the wave pick up the entire ship and fly it through the air as it was tossed over a long distance. I knew I was safe and the landing would be easy.
However, the one OBE I did have had some interesting points despite it being a bit more like a lucid dream where I played along with the action that happened, but in the fully aware state of being out of body.
My first recollection was that of rolling out, but finding myself standing next to my sleeping body in a bedroom I was not familiar with. Moving in the room, I wasn’t completely convinced I was truly out of body as the environment was different and there were all these other people in the room trying to convince me that I was NOT out of body!
Looking around, I noticed a digital clock on the shelf nearby. I was thrilled to see that the display was unreadable, a validation for me that I was out of body as I have used this signal before. However, still not completely convinced as those around me were persistent, I made myself look away and back again, and when it remained unreadable, I felt firmly validated now that I was indeed out of body.
There was a big glass door leading to a balcony from this room and wanting to get outside, I passed easily through the doors. On the balcony, I looked down and saw I was about 10 stories high, looking onto a city street below. Knowing I was out of body, I thought about just jumping off the edge and flying down, but again, those people in the room are doing their best to convince me that I’m NOT out of body!
Now I have some doubts again and hesitate jumping. The people show me the broken screen on the door, saying “look, you broke that screen as you passed through the door, so you are not out of body!” Somehow, I just knew I was, but taking it cautiously, I did some slow handstands on the edge of the balcony, feeling myself float and then doing a little jump and flip while holding on with one hand.
Now fully convinced that I would not be doing this unless I WAS out of body, I fearless jumped and floated gently down to the street level.
Memories here of exactly what I did are hazy. I was with a group of three young people, two boys and a girl, in a car, making plans. I was asked if I wanted to go to this dance with them, and initially said no because I didn’t think I was dressed appropriately. I quickly changed my mind and said ok when they insisted. Now noticing how well dressed (suit and tie) one male was to go to this dance, I knew I had to return to my room to change, as I remembered I had just bought a few beautiful dresses and some new underclothes that would be appropriate.
I told them I’d be right back, and proceeded to fly along the street, gathering stares and stunned looks from the people on the sidewalk as I flew up to my balcony where my bedroom was.
Just outside the balcony I noticed a computer like screen that I felt was the way I needed to go to enter into the room. I was concerned that I would not fit into this little screen, and looking toward the bedroom wall, knew that all I had to do was pass through it, so I did!
I’m now in my bedroom and standing alongside my bed, looking at myself sleeping! Looking away quickly, I worried that I might return to body if I got too close or looked too long. Telling myself, ‘no, I will stay out of body’, I turned again to look at myself on the bed.
I was a bit taken aback to see that I had changed into a deranged looking and disfigured woman, with some sort of dark ugly ‘blob’ next to me on the bed, somehow knowing this also was a part of me. I did not panic or become fearful, but just wondered why I was being presented to myself this way. Without further thought, I remembered the dance, and proceeded to get dressed.
I had to search a bit for these new dresses, deciding the melon colored one would be perfect. As I’m dressing, I was startled to see that one of the males from the car had flown up to the balcony door and was peering in at me! I was surprised he could do so, but then also knew that he was ‘special’ and something more than the others. He made some comment about not having seen such beauty in a long time and it was at this point that I have no further recall.
