this happened to me a while ago but i just remembered it so here goes:
i had a SP (sleep paralyis - (DreamAddict, we need the dictionary back ) experience - i dreamt i had fallen out of bed and now i was lying on the floor but couldn’t move a muscle.
I remember thinking vaguely hmm, this must be SP…
Out of habit i tried to spin and it worked! I spinned faster and faster. I remember thinking: hey, i should post this in the forum - and after that i don’t remember quite well, i think it went over in an OOBE kind of dream.
about the spinning, this is what i do when i want to get out of my body, i kinda spin around my belly button, not like turning around on your back and front and back, but spinning lying down, rotating around your belly button as it where.
Then i will spin faster & faster, hear the ringling and wooshing sound and eventually get the tunnel experience - and then i find myself out of my body.
hmm i posted this in the LD section but maybe it should be in beyond dreaming too… move
