Astral catalepsy, a spirit visit, or something else?
Like this post?
I hope I'm in the right forum for this, but I had a very curious experience early yesterday morning, and I hope someone here can explain it to me.
It was about 5:00 in the morning, and I was half awake and lying on my stomach. I felt like somebody was rubbing my shoulder blades. It was a pleasant enough experience, but I know that I had locked all the doors (and I checked it later that morning) and there was no way any physical person could be doing that.
In the past, I have had dreams that were astral travel experiences, so I have had astral catalepsy: the thing that happens when you have been out of your body and you feel paralyzed upon returning to your body. Sometimes it can be really scary, but I have learned what it is and this doesn't bother me quite so much. However, I've never had it combined with a feeling of being touched. I tried to scream, but couldn't. When I was finally able (seconds later, perhaps, but it felt like ages), I turned over and saw nobody there.
One of my friends insists it is the spirit of my father who died a few months ago, coming back to keep an eye on me. He wasn't a particularly "touchy" person, so I really doubt it was him.
Can anybody tell me what's going on?
