Out of body experiences.

Being catching up with knowledge has been a theme on my mind for a fair while now, and it is interesting to note that I've been recalling life memories at an increased rate recently. It is a real life bonus for me to be able to get to know myself in a more in depth way, and I haven't particularly been journalling or the like, things have just been popping up into the mind for fresh evaluation.

Anyway, the big memory to return is from when I was about 9 or 10 years old, when I had an out of body experience when in bed in the family home. I do wonder if this was an abduction experience, because I can recall being very fearful, feeling like I was being watched as I lay in bed. I must have fallen asleep, because the next thing I can recall is seeing my body curled up in bed; I was looking down at myself, up near the ceiling. Also, I was in a kind of mind conversation with someone or something while this whole experience was unfolding.

I must say I found the experience to be remarkable, and it was a real one off, never had anything like that before or since. I must have just filed the memory away in the old brain (I wasn't going to talk about it with anyone), largely forgotten, until now. This world really is beyond mind blowing at times. In the most banal and benign places, something truly bizarre can unfold. Anyway, just a little weird memory I thought I'd share, if any more come to mind I'll add them to the thread.

I've been looking into this subject today on Sott, and found a couple of interesting articles. Thinking about the phenomenon has got me wondering about the abilities of the soul; that is to say that, when not in the body, what are the limits of human sense perception? I can recall this experience now like it was yesterday. My vision was exactly like you'd think to be normal eye vision, but I was staring at my sleeping body, just such a bizarre thing to experience. And I wasn't ill at the time either.

Obviously the conversation I was having during the whole thing was telepathic, because at the time I didn't have a mouth. I can also recall seeing black shadowy figures and it was these that I was in communication with. Remembering this has really got me spooked and intrigued. I think I have more stuffed away in the memory hole which is waiting to be rediscovered.

The whole thing reminds me of reading The Wave series, particularly the info pertaining to abductions.

There are some stories of blind or deaf (from birth) people, while in the OBE part of an NDE, that were able to see or hear...
Generally, the "senses" looks improved during OBE.

Sometimes, during OBE, some people are able to "hear" the thoughts or intents of other people. ("Telepathy")
Also, some are able to see through walls or skin (internal organs), etc.
A French author made the hypothesis that this last ability is due to a move in 4th (space) dimension, whereas generally we are static in this 4th dim.

That's interesting. I wondered that as it was a state more akin to (or near to) 5th Density, that perceptual powers would be increased. Just what makes up the soul is the ultimate question, it genuinely fascinates me.
