WILD Experience...(not WILD Dream...that would be redundant)July 26 2001 at 1:43 PM
This morning I woke up at 5. I was a little angry because I woke up early and I didnt remember any dreams. I decided to try WILD. I started to hear hypnagogic sounds (a doorbell or something). I felt like I was still awake but I was standing up and I had my keys in my hand. I reached into my pocket and pulled out another set of keys. I felt them and looked at them. They were exaclty the same. I said "this isn't logical, I must be dreaming". I woke up.
For a few moments while waking up...I felt like I was about 10 inches above my sleeping self..then I got pulled back in. It was so wierd and cool. I know people describe this experience before they go into a dream state...Has anyone done it after like this?
Yeah I've had an WILD-related OBE

The impression of being outside one's body is directly related to the inducement of sleep. As your body loses its sensory capabilities as a prelude to sleep paralysis, the sensation of etheral weightlessness occurs because of a corresponding deadening of one's nerves to the outside world. Because the brain tends to perceive the world cohesively, that is, perceive in a way encompassing the five senses, the sensory void hence the impression of weightlessness can often be accompanied by a mentally-induced visual representation of weightlessness (the visual perception that one is floating above the body). The brain is "filling in the gaps" as it were in one's sensory perception artificially creating a mentally-fabricated synergistic perception of sight and sound that logically compliments a complete lack of feeling.
Anyway, that's my private theory of why OBEs seem to occur so frequently during WILDs.
