Out of Body Experiences?
Firstly thanks CT for bringing this forum up after the last one went down, it really shows the dedication you have to people who need answers.
Secondly – let me start by saying that I am familiar with the paranormal but I need serious closure on something that’s been haunting me for a number of years.
When I was 5 years old all the way until I was 7 I experienced “waking up in my dreams” a lot, this would typically happen when I stand up to see myself lying on the bed. Everything around me would be the same way I left it. I always try to switch on the lights but they never seem to work. I would “dream” terrible things.
About 3 years ago I had the same thing but it haunts me all the time – only because it has never felt as real as it did that night.
I “awoke” and tried to switch the lights on, and to no surprise they didn’t work. I don’t even remember feeling like I actually touched the light switch. I felt overwhelmingly anxious and fearful. As I stepped out of my room into the passage, there was a man, all I saw was a knife in his morbidly distorted hand, he seemed to move in a sick, crazy and completely insane way. I remember feeling the uncontrollable urge to run as far as I could but I was restricted to the passage and the kitchen. I couldn’t leave the boundaries – it was just endless blackness out the windows. I looked at the clock as I sat in the corner of the kitchen, 2:15am. As I heard him coming around the corner into the kitchen I had the unmistakable knowledge of what his intentions were, to consume me.
I willed myself awake, feeling sweaty and extremely ill.
I looked at my bedside clock, 2:16am – a minute after the time I originally saw.
My question is this – was I just dreaming? Or was it as real as I think it was? Does this occur often in people?
The house has its paranormal problems, knocking coming from everywhere and nowhere, scratching sounds, shadows – we even have photographic evidence of a half-bodied apparition in broad daylight.
Is stuff like this even possible?
