Out Of Body Experience Or Just A Dream? 

Submitted by: Anonymous

Well one night I was rushed [to] the hospital due to my really bad seizure. I was out for some time. But when I woke up, I had a story to tell. When I was laying there in the bed hooked up to everything. I was looking down at my body, it like I left my body for some time.

Yes, the doctor said at one point they lost me and that [was] when it must have happened. Yes I was looking down at myself sleeping or out of it. Wow! When I woke I though I was dead. But to find I was not. Know if you have [ever] left your body, you would understand how it [felt] and how scary it can be watching the nurses and doctor work on [you]. This is why it felt like I was a ghost watching myself die.

This is a true story one I will never forget.

We get a lot of stories like this that are short on detail, and the authors don't tend to respond to questions. So simply put, we don't always publish them. This one is different. 

Our job is to remain as neutral as possible, present the stories that are submitted to us and provide information about the story.

With this story we have three options:

  1. Out of body experience - Wikipedia defines an OBE as "an experience that typically involves a sensation of floating outside one's body and, in some cases, perceiving one's physical body from a place outside one's body." You can get more information including a brief history of the term by clicking here.

  2. Near-death experience - classified by many as another form of out of body experience, a NDE usually occurs at or very near death and can include several different sensations ranging from a feelings of detachment from the body, a sensation of levitation, and the presence of a bright light. This story has all of that except the bright light. You can read more here.

  3. Just a dream or a dream like state - Most of us have had some pretty realistic dreams. Sometimes, it can be very difficult to tell the difference between where reality ends and dreaming begins. Given that the presenter states she was having a seizure at the time the events took place, it is just as likely that she was experiencing a dream like state brought on by the medical emergency she was experiencing. Don't think so? Read the stories people have submitted to epilepsy.com under the article EPILEPSY/SEIZURE CAUSED HALLUCINATIONS?

According to the Daily Mail, researchers at the University of Ottawa happened upon a psychology graduate who admitted that she could have out of body experiences at will. Rather than brush her claims off, they chose to investigate further. What they found is very interesting. Read "The woman who 'can leave her body at will': Student sheds light on the strange brain activity involved in out-of-body experiences."

Is This Photo Proof That Bigfoot & Humans Share A Common Ancestor?

Bigfoot researchers have long supposed that the legendary cryptid is a primate, and therefore related to modern humans.

Recently discovered photo examinations which originate from Shawnee, Oklahoma may hold an important clue.

William Bradley has long held an interest in Sasquatch. Himself a native of Shawnee, Bradley states that Oklahoma has long been a hot bed of Bigfoot activity.

Bradley claims to have multiple talents which have helped him discover the truth.

When Hunting For Bigfoot, Look Up.
Way up.

Regular readers to ParaNorthern on Facebook or our website know that I am officially a Bigfoot skeptic. Even though I want to believe that a large primate inhabits the considerable wilderness of the North American continent, most of the so called evidence falls into the category of Bollocks. (Ask someone British.)

So when I read recently that some Sasquatch hunters are suggesting that we look to the tree tops for sleeping Bigfoot I laughed out loud. I could not picture something of the supposed mass of of this bipedal cryptid climbing a tree to get a good night's rest.

But then I saw this video.
