Feel likes soul coming out of body (Page 1)

This has happened to me about 4 times and i will describe the first time because it was the worst one. About a year ago i went to bed and fell asleep around 9 or 10. I was ok just dreaming about something. Then suddenly i woke up. Well it felt like i woke up but my eyes were closed and i couldnt open them. Suddenly i just felt like my body was curving up and this will sound veery strange but it felt like my soul (spirit?) was coming out of my body. I think i was half awake and i felt like not only was my soul coming out my body but i could fear inside of me. I dont know how long this lasted but later i woke up and i was shaking so badly. I was terrified of going back to sleep. It happened 3 more times after that. It very weird and ive never had sleep problems. But i cant tell you that its as if im about to die in a way. Im not a religious person i dont go to church. I dont know whats wrong with me but i want it to stop because every time it happened i felt so scared and horrible the next day.

spirit leaving your body
your not alone in this. this is what they call an outer body experience,when you feel your spirit come out of your body and you can actually see yourself.and its not about feeling religious. you probably wont believe me but you do have an encounter with the spirit realm. if you dont believe in God,than i think you should. just ask him every night to watch over your spirit while you sleep,and he will,because he loves you. i know about this because i been through it,and theres not alot of people who would believe me when i told them,they thought i was crazy,but im not.there is a divine calling in your life.not every one would wanna talk about this,but theres a lot of people that i know too,that have had the same thing happen to them.

HYPNOPOMPIC/HYPNAGOGIC hallucinations-NOT spiritual encounters
You were NOT having an encounter with the spirit world. You probably suffer from hypnopompic or hypnagogic hallucinations, in which you have one foot in the "awake" world while you still have one foot in the "dream" world. During this time, it is common to have an "out of body" experience. This has happened to me as well, and it is terrifying. You can suffer from this problem not only from sleep issues, but from emotional issues or stress. Rest assured there are other people out there who have this problem. Search the internet for more information and chat rooms. I would suggest talking to a sleep specialist to find out more.

i have had this after sleep paralysis. I had sat up in my bed, my hallucinations were so bad i was too scared to turn around and look at my body because it felt like i had been obsessed, although i could sense that my body was still lying down. yuck

i kinda feel the same thing its wierd, so i was trying to sleep and while i try to sleep i think of things lots and lots of things, that night i remembered that i had a feeling that i could let my spirit leave my body, so i thought about that and tried for just curiosity and i actually did feel like half of my spirit was leaving but i started to freak out and i woke up, and said its probably my imagination so i tried to go to sleep again and happened the same thing without trying, and this happened like 3 times so i finally woke up and turned the light on, and i was shaking and now im tring not to sleep xD x.x is this just my imagination cause i feel like my spirit goes down and my adrenaline rushed up my head... its awefull

I've had this happen to me a few nights ago. That was the very first time it every happen to me.I fell asleep around 10:30. It was like i was awake but asleep too. I could see myself just laying there asleep,but also felt awake. It felt kind of weird and I woke up at 2a.m. It was the best sleep I've ever had it felt like. I told my friend about what happen and she said thats happen to her before and she wonders if you could actuely die from that happening. I'm starting to wonder that now. And other than some of these other people were it freaks them out i thank its pretty cool.

for the first time i felt something weird in my dream. at the first time i couldn't describe what was it but i was little terrified because i saw a light with hand or hand with light the took me out my soul it was trying to kill me. i could understand why but i know was a dream but funny thing it feel real. when i woke up i felt confused about what happen. At my second time it was kind weird but it give me a clue to understand what really happen to me. it was like 2 o 3 am i was plan to go to sleep and i know i was sleep yet but i felt something froze my entire body and my eyes was closed automatically. at few second i having hard time to breath like it was no oxygen at all. and the third time it was weird because there was something try to come out from body but it feel painful. at the time i know i might die because of this

What to Do?
I have the same thing happening to me all the time. Too many times to even remember. It started when I was 21 and still continutes 10 years later. Now my outer body experiences are getting more real. I sometimes think I am sleep and find myself waking up in my bed and having my spirit feeling as if it is being dragged across the bed and up. I play my worship and praise music to keep me at peace and as I am going through this outer body experience I can hear the music playing. I begain to sing and as I opened my eyes I saw a evil, nasty spirit. Almost like being face to face with death. I was so scared that my spirit fell to the bed and I awoke. I continue to see unknown people around my house as I fall asleep and even the presence of God would visit me and I would feel myself laughing and feeling the joy of him around me. Sometimes it is so hard to determine if I am sleep or awoke. I have even gotten so strong within these visions that I would be able to walk around my home, look in the mirror at myself, talk, sing, and once even felt as if I was fighting with a being of some sort. At first I was unable to do these things, it felt as if I was being held down and couldn't even move my tongue, but as I asked My Father in Heaven for more strength he gave it to me and every day I get stronger. The only question is....Is what do I do with these experiences, why do I experience these things, why do they feel so real, what is the purpose?

i think it's because of fear well mine is caused by the fear of snakes when i think about them before sleep i always dream about them if i wanna have a different dream like if i keep thinking of sex tryna have a wet dream or something else i dont end up having it exept if i think of snakes and what happens is they dont actually attack me they paralize me in the dream and like open their mouth and suck out my soul and when i wake up i felt like a droped down from the roof like i was in the air the whole time im like ..arr crap

Hi check out John Paul Jackson ministry online. Sounds like you have a sensitive spirit Man like my Self and the enemy is trying to Twist and Confuses that. i hear the spirit of god telling me you have a high calling in the prophetic and gift of revelation to communicate with God in deep intimacy (in-to-Me-See)I.e(Gods Heart for you) their is a higher level of warfare that you are aware of in your life cause he has given you gifts but the enemy will always try to twist and confuses that as a young person i struggled with my understanding to in developing this...just remember that the battle is not yours its not your job to fight Satan its gods and he has done that or demons for that matter...i can also see a crown on your head in the spirit youv got great anointing in your life. bless you as look for Jesus in all things

That's quite interesting! I'm a new believer, about my 7th month in, and I've been getting some strong visions and dreams that come to life later on. I think they call them Seer's if I'm correct. I had a dream last night where my soul came out of my body as well and began looking it up. I just came across your post and found the John Paul Jackson Ministry website, very good stuff. Thanks for the information, looks like i'm getting a response!

Out of Body experience
I had a out of body experience last night, I woke up with a start after a nightmare.. I felt as though a soul was leaving my body. I then opened my eyes to see the face of a young child looking back at me (glowing, and just the face) I was very calm.. Any ideas what this could have been?

It's called atral projection everyone.
You do have control, your soul your body.
I don't believe it's a sleep disorder.
Many people actually practice this.
