I just awoke from an OBE. I have them often enough, but this time my face kept burning. Anyone know what that might mean? I was really freaked out b/c I thought there might be someone else there. I was screaming (as usual : , I really need to stop that), b/c I was freaked out, but of course, no one could hear me. I kept willing myself to return to my body, but it took a while.

Anyone know if the burning symbolized anything?

I forgot to add that at one point, I could see myself and I was wearing glasses. But, I wasn't wearing glasses (b/c I was asleep) and those weren't any glasses I've ever worn. I felt like I had inhabited another's body...which I've done before, anyway.

So, I'm freaked out right now. Please excuse...

I've never had an OBE while sleeping only when I'm awake. If your asleep how do you tell the difference between an OBE and a dream?

B/c they're completely different. A dream is happening in your head, OBEs don't.

Anyone else know what the burning might have meant? I'm searching the internet, but it is tiresome.

My first question would be: where were you during the OBE? It is possible that you came in contact with some strong emotions that caused a burning sensation, or that something in your surroundings triggered a similar response.

I was in my bed.

strong emotions? I was upset yesterday, but I don't see that that would affect me today in that way.

I'm calmer, now. I don't know why my face would burn like that; it never has before. Maybe it's just b/c initially, I didn't realize what was going on and I kept trying to turn my head. But, I don't think so. I'm just not sure.

I just know that that experience was completely weird, and I felt like I was being harmed or going to be harmed by some outside force. And, I've never felt that like that before. I mean, I've been scared before...I think that's pretty common. But, not b/c I felt another's presence. And, physically, I was alone in the room and my door was closed, so I know it's not b/c someone came into the room.

Ok, so physically you were in bed - where were you spiritually? I was thinking along the lines of your spirit, while out of your body, coming across someone else's emotions which may have been negative.

I've not had the burning reaction, but have had a shivery eerie sensation at the base of my head during OBE that I attributed to crossing someone's emotional trail, so to speak.

Oh, okay. I understand, now.

Spiritually, I'm okay. Emotionally, not. So, perhaps that had to do with it.

Thanks for taking time to reply.
