Two nights ago I had multiple out-of-body experiences in one night and later a very nasty "dream/nightmare".
If you're squeamish etc. please don't read on. It played out for only 10 sec or so. My younger brother was in front of me, his arm was held awkwardly and he had a marking on his back. He looked in pain and something seemed off. I started looking at him and said "we need to get a doctor to look at him". A heavy-set man with black hair and a black beard came around the side of my brother. He said "we're doctors*" and proceeded (stop here if squeamish!) to slice his skin from ear to underneath the chin and yellow-green fluid came out. The "dream" stopped suddenly.
*Actually he said we're GPs, general practitioners, a term we us in Australia but I'm not sure about elsewhere.
I keep saying "dream/nightmare" because it had an odd quality to it, more like it was a movie clip of a scene running. I have the distinct feeling it was projected into my consciousness, rather than being my dream. There's just something not quite right about it.
Can anyone here suggest what could be going on?
I don't recall much about the out-of-body experiences at all. I only know I was having them and the tell-tale-sign over the years is that I fumble around trying to turn a light on without success and (after years of this happening) I quickly realize I'm not awake, then I wake up and actually turn the light on.
