Eva Vidal - Tidal waves, heavy gravity and false awakenings



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

Facebook request to the Monroe Institute

Mr. Buhlman, I am yoga instructor and very new to your techniques. Growing up as a child I had on-going, and very disturbing tidal wave dreams, well into my mid-30's even. About 10 years ago I had what I would now call some sort of astral dream whereby those tidal waves turned into a demonic creature, roaring and loud noises. I woke up in a puddle of sweat.

I only had that one time, but I will never forget it.

I have recently been practicing your techniques using headphones. Often times I will fall asleep and it will go from track to track. I feel very hypnotized and very affected by the deep ocean sounds. While they relax me, they also take me to dark places that I don't want to go to.

Today I laid down for my session and feel asleep, but when I woke up I realized that 2hrs had passed. I felt something on my bed and I thought it was my cat, then I realized my cat has past over, so I went to turn on the light and the light wouldn't come one. Then I realized my house was completely dark and my bedroom door was shut, so I got up (or I thought I got up) and walked all around the house and none of the lights would come on.

Then I noticed that books were strewn all over the place and I tried to go out the front door and it was locked and I couldn't get out. Then I noticed the time on the stove was exactly the real time so I knew something was happening simultaneously in real time. I knew something was wrong. I then could hear your voice and I could still hear the ocean sounds so I suddenly realized that in fact I wasn't in my body but I was still in bed listening to your techniques.

So I moved my form back to the bedroom and I was trying to wake up myself up from the inside, but something was keeping me down. It felt like heavy gravity. I thought my eyes were open and All I could see was dark wavy lines of energy all over my room and loud noises. The dark wavy lines were moving in direct relation to the ocean sounds in my ears. I only got back into my body out of sheer fright and and quick snap, but not without a major forceful pull first. It was a heavy struggle. I apologize for the long message. Can you tell me if this was an OBE and why I would face such darkness. Thank you. I appreciate any feedback.
