have experienced a kind of sleep paralysis four or five
times. [See our May, 2006 article under OBEs for more
about sleep paralysis.] I wasn't able to move or speak,
and it felt like I was being suffocated.
a month back I had this experience. I was sleeping at
night when I felt as though I was floating out of the
window, as though I had no body. Oddly, this didn't
seem to surprise me. I saw a bunch of flowers coming
closer to me; they were small and white, like Jasmine.
I entered into the flowers without any fear. I was kind
of enjoying the experience.
I was among the flowers, I saw that I had entered a
tunnel and that the tunnel's surface was made of the
same flowers. For a few seconds or minutes (I can't
estimate the time) I was just floating, deeper and deeper
into that tunnel.
a thought came to my mind, that this tunnel was leading
me into a new world, a world which is not a part of
the world where I was living. But I was ready for that
new world. I kept floating into the tunnel and gradually
it started broadening.
a thought came to mind: "When will this tunnel
end." Soon after that, I realized that the tunnel
had ended and I was in another part of the universe.
In the far distance I saw a cloud-like image. It had
a mammoth radiant light in its center, and its edges
were a dark color like black and grey.
sight of that cloud made me realize that I was at the
entrance of heaven, and I thought that if I moved any
closer towards the cloud, I would be dead and have no
chance of going back. So I just drifted myself back
without any effort, since it was all being controlled
by my thoughts.
I came back to my conscious state in few minutes, I
was dazed. After some time I began to feel normal. But
whatever it was, I can never forget this experience.
Now I feel closer to God and the fear of death has left
