Cindy D's NDE
As I was coming back into “sight” and out of the black darkness, to my surprise, I was floating on the ceiling looking down at my body watching my three friends and boyfriend over my body trying to shake me and slapping me lightly on the face trying to revive me. My body was limp and they could get no response from me. I watched the whole thing. As I watched, I was scared. I didn’t understand any of this and thought I was dead. I was so scared because I thought, “Omg, I’m dead and they are going to bury me, but I’m not dead. I can see them and myself!” My next thought was, “I’m too young to die!” At that point I felt the spinning vibrations again, everything went black and I was back in my body.
I told my boyfriend and friends what I saw them do, who confirmed it. About 15 minutes later I started to get the vibrations again and felt I was “slipping out” again. I held on to my boyfriend and told him, “I don’t want to slip back out”. I fought the vibrations, which was not easy, but that night didn’t have another OB. I'm not sure what brought this OB on, from a fully awake 'walking outside' to a complete 'pass out onto a OB'. Most, since, are in bed.
That was years ago and there was not much talk on the topic then. When that happened I had never heard of OB’s, and it scared me tremendously, but have
educated myself since (after “many more” occurrences, mostly in bed). For some reason, they seem to come on very easy with me. I have countless other experiences, too, but the first experience is always the most interesting.
Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience? No
At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event? No
What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience? very alert
Was the experience dream like in any way? no
Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body? Yes I don't recall a "spirit body" during this OB. I was more looking down at what was going on with my body and friends and didn't even try and look at my spirit self. I would have to say I was more "pure consciousness"
What emotions did you feel during the experience? fright
Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises? Not on this particular OB experience.
Did you meet or see any other beings? Yes I "saw" my boyfriend and friends trying to revive me
Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? No
Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later? Yes My friends and boyfriend confirmed all I said they did to me trying to revive me.
Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different? Yes One sense I recall was my sight zooming in closer. It was like it targeted right into the scene below with my body with a zoom in and out quality. As though just thinking about wanting a better view would "zoom" my sight in closer even though I was still on the ceiling level.
Did you have any sense of altered space or time? No
Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body? Uncertain I never "decided to go back in my body". I didn't know I could do that at the time. But as soon as my "fear level" rose, and I thought I was dead, I went back in.
How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices? In the beginning, you get more spiritual, but I find as these occurrences happened more through the years and the more educated I get on the topic, I don't get all "wigged out" on a path to knowledge kind of thing and pretty much live a normal suburban house wife life. I don't follow any "religion" but believe in god.
Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience? No
Have you shared this experience with others? Yes I really don't tell too many people because I found many looked at me strange when I did when I was younger. I pretty much keep it too myself unless I'm in the company of a person that is open to the topic.
What emotions did you experience following your experience? confused, scared
What was the best and worst part of your experience? Worst was thinking I was dead when it happened. best is since have had other OB's and am educated to understand what is happening so it's not a scary thing anymore.
