I have been experiencing strange happenings lately. But most of all, I am concerned with this particular subject. I work shift work so my sleep schedule is completely messed up. I basically sleep when I can. Sometimes, however, it can take me a while to fall asleep.
I am sure everyone has had instances when they are so tired but can't quite fall asleep. Well, it's a little similar to that. I get to a state where I am asleep but it seems I am still conscious of what is going on. It is while I am in this state that my entire body starts to tingle, sort of like how your foot feels after you've been sitting on it for sometime. I almost feel as if I am in a lucid dream, but I can feel and hear. I can see also but it's like I am seeing from a dream because my eyes are closed. The only problem is it is extremely hard to move my limbs. I wouldn't go as far as saying I feel paralyzed because I can still move, it's just not very easy.
I have read some articles from astral projectors who speak of this tingling feeling while they are in this same state when they first started to astral project. I am unsure what is causing this and I don't believe this is something caused by exhaustion (which is what the doctor said) because it just doesn't "feel" right.
Personally, I have no wish to be able to astral project because, quite frankly, it scares the hell out of me. I have read too many articles speaking of the negative entities that can be encountered and I, for one, do not want to come into contact with any.
I could really use some advice on the matter, so all comments are welcome. Thank you.
