I’ve tried OBE’s in the past, mostly through WILD, or trying to induce an OBE through WBTB (waking up then inducing SP without moving, and attempting to separate my “astral body” into the phase).
Although, in my numerous attempts, I’ve had a few strange occurrences. Nothing too serious, at least, nothing too out of the ordinary to seek guidance on. This, however, is an issue I haven’t heard of, but has happened to me at least three times now.
While WILD’ing, I lay down, and at about 30-50 breath counts, depending on how tired/relaxed I am, I can recede my consciousness from my body into my mind, allowing my body to go completely relaxed, and have SP wash over it in about another 20 counts. Now, this is the part that gets a bit strange. Once my consciousness has receded into my mind, I try and relax as much as I can so that my mind begins to slip from its own consciousness, allowing myself to fall asleep very gradually. Nothing new here, that’s the premise of a WILD attempt, however, during this period of time, something strange begins to happen.
All of a sudden, when my mind is slipping through this state, I suddenly get the feeling that I’m spinning. Literally, it feels as if I’m rolling/spinning down a hill, at an incredibly fast pace. My heart rate quickens, my neck feels out of place, and I suddenly feel incredibly uncomfortable, as if my neck is bent at an awkward position even though I’m laying completely straight.
I’ve heard of people getting the sensation that their falling, that’s something I myself have experienced, but this “spinning” sensation is something that feels incredibly uncomfortable, and I usually have to shift my position, ruining the SP, to get it to stop.
Is this simply another form of the “falling” sensation, or something else entirely?
