Random Fear during OBE

Last night I made an intention to wake up and attempt an OBE. I set my clock at 3:00 am, had a cup of tea, and drifted off to sleep. I awoke at the appropriate time and started the normal rituals: laying on your back, visualizing actually leaving your body, etc. The vibrations came and everything was fine, I’d been through this before, it wasn’t supposed to be a problem. But then, I became anxious, and with that, came the haunting sleep paralysis. In the past I didn’t mind it, I actually found it calming, but for some reason last night I became fearful. In the midst of my fear, a demon like face appeared, floating slowly towards me. He looked like Darth Maul from Star Wars. I let out a scream that felt trapped, like a spider web was wrapped over my mouth keeping my screams from escaping. The demon like face kept floating nearer, I tried to move my body but I couldn’t. Then a voice echoed in my right ear. It was a woman, her voice was soft. The woman explained to me that my name, Lateef, wasn’t my actual name, it was something else—I couldn’t make out the rest of what she was trying to say. Either way, I wanted out. I struggled to escape my sleep paralysis, until finally I did. I woke up frightened and confused, I’d done this many time. Now I have this small fear sitting with me. But you know what? I don’t care, I’m going to do it all over again. Happy dreaming.
