    I know it's happened to me.

    I'm generally sleep deprived. I've fallen asleep at my desk many times. In my old house I'd have to get up to the right to exit the home office so here I've gotten up and walked into the wall several times.

    I also have certain music that if left on all night will cause mild, happy hallucinations. It's almost like LSD time in the middle of the night. It's more vivid that just dreams and I can remember it for a short time after I wake up.

    Something like the below will cause it reliably

    ^^^^^^ Enjoy ^^^^^^

    This speaks to how truly strange I really am icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif

    I find that I'm blissfully disoriented for the first 15 minutes or so in the morning.

    If I wake up a little early (often to pee .... old age and all) I most often will go back to bed to see if it will happen again.

    My husband sometimes moves his legs like he's jogging but he's dead asleep, as dogs often do. He knows when he's done it because the next morning I call him "Rover".

    That's very common. I've been kicked more than a few times.

    Mine is somewhat like people report near death experiences. It's very bright, starts full of a beautiful bluish white, then colorful worldly or out of worldly experiences, at times I know where I am and sometimes not a clue, but with stunning beauty.

    Possible only when I get a chance at five or more hours sleep and always with a genre of music similar to the above at a very low level.

    Happened to me when I was young too. Usually it's connected to my dream.

    I'm surprised sleep paralysis isn't mentioned. icon_confused.gif In many Asian cultures, people believe you're being oppressed by ghost.

    You feel awake and are aware of your surrounding but you can't move your body for a few minutes. It's happened to me twice when I was sleep deprived from bad jet lag. It's also accommodated by sense of smell and touch so it feels really real that a ghost is paralyzing you. icon_eek.gif

    "sleep paralysis"

    I don't have any of this that I'm aware of, but I sure as hell don't know where I am for a few minutes. Maybe it's a real bad sign of something coming .... I don't know, but it's so real, beyond any dream I've ever had. Nothing scary about it though .... I just want it to keep going and going.

    I wish I was a painter or good illustrator so I could put pencil or brush to paper before I wake up enough that I forget what I was experiencing.

    My boyfriend woke me up and said I was yelling, "Hope, hope !"
    It was because, being asleep, I couldn't get my mouth open far enough to yell, "HELP !"
    LOL.
    I don't remember, now, what was after me...

    Like my dog (RIP) who used to bark in his sleep with his mouth closed. The way his legs were going, no question something was chasing him.

    In mine, there's nothing chasing me. There's really nothing disturbing about it except the white light at the beginning and the intensity.

    I'm not religious and mostly agnostic, and don't much believe in the afterlife. Notice that I'm leaving some measure of possibility open. However, it's sort of what you'd imagine the afterlife to be like.
