Practising atheist physics student nearly has out of body



Type of Spiritual Experience


Number of hallucinations: 1


The post comes from a website that helps people with odd problems this post was on the section  http://www.wisegeek.org/what-are-hypnagogic-hallucinations.htm

This is lovely, dear little soul – a practising physics student and an atheist!  And he nearly had an out of body experience – that might have changed his mind – about the physics [chortle]

But to see what he saw, he was on some chemical and either he was prescribed it or he was abusing it

A description of the experience

Post 33

I use to have these hallucinations from the age of 16 to 19. It would usually happen right before going to sleep and sometimes before waking up. What would happen is that my eyes would open but I couldn't move, then my whole body would vibrate so terribly that I thought I was having a seizure. In fact, I thought these were seizures before I found out they were hallucinations.

The absolute worst experience I had was one were I thought I had demons and worms implanted in my body. It was so bad that I believed in the devil for a day, and I'm a practicing atheist/ physics student.
