This may be Too Much Information, I’m not sure.
This is more geared towards Bees with “New Age” beliefs, but everyone is welcome to comment as long as they respect that this is an aspect of my spirituality – I know this will sound odd to a lot of people.
Basically, I’m pretty sure I had an out-of-body experience during sex. I have had them before (both spontaneously and through meditation and willpower), but the few spontaneous occurrences were when I was very close to falling asleep – not during any sort of activity.
I had gone through my usual routine of about an hour of yoga and meditation/prayers before getting in bed. I was definitely tired, but still down for sex before I went to sleep. We started in on it, and I was kind of thinking it would just be a “quickie” since we were both exhausted, but it evolved into a deeper experience and I got more into it than I thought I would.
I was on my back (not trying to be ultra-graphic or descriptive…it’s a relevant detail) and really enjoying myself, yet tired. Waves of “vibrations” were rushing through my body (the vibrations being a common sign of impending projection, or out-of-body experience). I felt pressure in my third eye chakra, and the familiar sensations which accompany OOBEs, and suddenly I was looking right at our ceiling fan, and a feeling of panic struck me. I “looked down” and actually saw us in bed together, at which point I tried to scream out.
Immediately I “awoke” with a jolting sensation, kind of freaked out despite being experienced with these types of things. I asked him “Um, did I just fall asleep??”, which confused him. He said he would’ve noticed if I’d fallen asleep, and then I told him everything I had just experienced (which felt like it happened almost instantaneously). He also concluded that it sounded like an OOBE, but was confused how it happened when it did.
I was thinking about it this morning, and now I’m wondering if it could be a wake-induced lucid dream? Basically, that’s when you fall asleep, but maintain consciousness, which is something I’ve also practiced and is closely linked to OOBEs.
Either way, kind of weird, but not exactly “out of the blue” for me and I’m now leaning towards the dream theory. I texted my SO about earlier and he again said he didn’t notice me falling asleep, but if it happened instantaneously he might have thought my eyes were just shut. The one thing that makes me doubtful that I fell asleep was that while I *was* tired, I was also very present in what was going on with my SO, and I didn’t feel like I was going to fall asleep. In fact, maybe Too Much Information, but it seemed like I was close to orgasm, so…not sure why I would just pass out at that moment.
Has anyone else had something similar happen? Or any particularly weird experience during sex, since I’m not sure how many Bees will be able to relate to this post?
