I didn't have another sp or obe experience until 2005 and have had about 15 experiences since then.It usually happens to me just in the moment of falling asleep or shortly after.
I believe what the Bible teaches about demons and that there is a spiritual dimension that is unseen to our human eyes. I have yet to find a commonality as to why sp happens or what causes it but as sure as I know the reality we know and live in everyday, I know these are not hallucinations.
Sp is so strange that it forces us to figure out what we truly believe in..that comes with much unbiased searching.
I find it strange that other people would envision similar shadowy figures.
I fought them, dare I say I killed some of them and cast them down to hell to await judgement.
Then it transitioned into an involuntary out of body experience where my spirit was floating uncontrollably above my bed.
I could see my brother in his bed and I was trying to get back in my body.The other ones were smaller and oh ya this was all in my mind, the conversation we had.I knew jesus would never put fear in me so i made a phone call to my dad who also has had bad experiences because i asked the tall one if my dad knew about it and he told me yes. I am also a follower of Jesus Christ, and I believe that there is a spiritual realm that exists that we normally don't perceive as well as the physical world in which our usual existence takes place.Sp mostly happens to me while sleeping on my back but have had several time when I sleep on my side.The strangest thing is that when in enter sp while sleeping on my side, when I sit my torso up to look around, I feel the distinctive spinning one feels when you stand up fast from touching your toes and you regain your balance.Also, when fighting so hard to get out of sp, I had strained so hard to move a limb that I have actually moved my "spirit" arm or leg up out of my body.
