My Experiences.I have been having a couple of out of body experiences and situations where I've been borderline sleeping and being awake at the same time.
Let me start off by saying all of this stuff started happening since I was about 9 years old or so.
When I was growing up, I've had tons of sleep paralysis where I found myself leaving my body and floating up in the air not knowing where I was going. One time I floated out of my room during the night and spun around in the hallway. It was scary and weird at the same time.
When I was like about 9 or 10 or so, I was lying in my room when a woman appeared (or someone feminine in nature, but I perceived it to be a woman) with a white gown on, spinning around in front of me, and giggling. When she spun around sparks of gold went around her. Then she suddenly disappeared and left a sensation that made me feel really good. I don't know how to describe it, I can't describe it with regular words, but it felt like everything you ever wanted in that feeling "all the toys you could ever want" and an intense feeling of joy that lasted about 5 minutes or so even after she left.
I don't know who she is or what she wanted. I wish that maybe she can come again and give me the same good feeling. I really need that right now in my life. It just made me feel really good.
I'm bringing this up because it has to do with another experience I had in my early twenties (like about 21 or so). Where another person appeared (don't know if it was the same person) when I woke up from sleeping and, yes, I was fully vividly awake.
This occurred when I woke up and she was standing in front of my room door. She looked to be about 18 or so and had on a white gown that went down to her ankles, and she was barefoot. Her white gown was short-sleeved and she had dark hair that was in a pony tail and placed towards the front. She basically looked like everybody else except she was very thin and had a strange pattern on the center of her gown. I tried to recognize the pattern but I couldn't. She had brown eyes, but she had a little bit of orange-ish in the pupil. I was not scared when I saw her even though I was only 3 feet away from her. She said something with her mouth, I saw her lips move but I didn't hear anything come out of her mouth. I instead heard her voice in my mind which was pretty weird. She said "Don't worry, I'm just here looking for something. Go back to sleep". Those were her exact words. I seem to remember her voice in my head. I then became very sleepy and looked at her before I went to sleep. She looked at the floor of the room. Well I must admit, it was in quite a mess! That's the last I saw of this person, I never saw this person again.
My Near-Death Experience:
Now let me get to my own near death experience. I was on a heart drug as I had some type of rapid heartbeat that could be fatal if I didn't go on this drug. It was a beta blocker which regulated my heartbeat. Everything was fine on this drug. Then I took another drug (can't remember which one exactly) at the same time and then I was basically knocked out and fell into a very deep sleep and somehow I found myself awake in my room.
I sat on the edge of my bed and looked at the TV I usually keep the TV on before I go to bed. I looked at it a couple of seconds and apparently I had no idea I was out of my body. I then stood up on my bed, I had no sensation of standing up. I thought about it and I was there. I looked outside the window found myself there standing up. It was snowing lightly, and yes I do love snow. I looked around but there was no one around. So I just stood in the snow as it fell all around me. It was very quiet. The sky however was very blue. I thought about this girl I liked (her name was Danielle) and I really liked her. I looked up at the sky again and noticed the edges of the sky being light blue and it was snowing very lightly, how freaky is that?
I looked up again and I was in front of the sky. The sky was so blue and peaceful. Believe it or not, the blue sky had a personality or at least I felt a presence there. Somehow, I knew it was about to ask me a question or talk to me about something. It felt like it was asking me 100 different questions at the same time, but I responded by saying ..."No...I don't want to die, please let me live..."
The next thing I knew I had a rapid falling sensation that lasted for about 2 or 3 seconds. I woke up, but this is where it gets even more interesting. It felt like quicksand. I woke up, but I felt the ecstasy of going back, I became very tired and sleepy and I knew if I shut my eyes I would go back to the blue sky. Everytime I thought I was awake, I felt the quicksand sensation coming again. Not only did it feel like that, but I felt very high like I was on some heroin or something, you couldn't resist this feeling you just wanted to dive into this feeling, but doing so would take me back and the intense quicksand sensation was also there.
Now I know how it feels when someone gets into a car accident or whatever and they begin to slip away and die, really you can't resist the feeling. So I literally had to drag myself out of bed holding on to whatever I could find to take me to the kitchen where luckily I found a bottle of pepsi. My knees were on the floor and I felt myself slipping away again, so I poured the soda into a cup that was there and I just drank as much as I can. The slipping away quicksand sensation started going away. I don't usually drink caffeine products, but thank God for caffeine!! Maybe I shouldn't say that.
Since this experience, I have become more spiritual and a believer of other worlds. I have since started to pray. I now notice that whenever I pray I get whatever I want literally. I noticed when I pray, my luck goes up 100%.
Well these are my experiences, best of luck
