Three OBEs while sick and exhausted

November 9, 2008

Another three OBEs last night, but frankly, it wouldn't have mattered to me if I came out of my physical body and went straight to the moon. I was sick -- possibly from something I ate for dinner -- and my heart was pounding, and I was also exhausted and brain-dead from tons of overtime lately.

For the record, I went to bed before 9 p.m., then woke up around midnight feeling very bad. My heart was pounding, my stomach was upset, and thoughts of work were rolling around in my head. I tried to get work out of my head by just focusing on relaxing, and telling myself that work wasn't that important, that even if I worked more overtime some other people were further behind than I was, and nobody would notice if I have to miss a day.

So, I was having problems getting back to sleep, but was probably getting closer and closer to sleep, when the three OBE events happened in rapid succession. The first one was classic, drifting out of my physical body, and straight up to the ceiling. For all I knew tonight I really was dying, but I didn't care. I was so uncomfortable physically that I quickly woke up, then had another OBE event, woke up, and then repeated this once more, before finally falling asleep for good.

This morning my head is killing me, my ears are congested, and I feel plain old sick.
