I need some help trying to decide whether I was close to an out-of-body experience or not. I was practicing the WILD technique one night and set my alarm for about 5 hours after I went to sleep. After turning off the alarm, I went back to sleep and had a normal, fuzzy dream. After this dream, I woke up in my bed, or I think I did. My eyes were barely open and I was unable to move my body very well. My brain totally accepted it to be reality. After shutting my eyes, I had another non-lucid dream, and then woke up the same way. I wasn't able to move and I could barely make out the details of my room. All I could tell was that my window was half open, my red alarm clock was on, and my room was almost pitch black. My brain still accepted this to be myself waking up. I shut my eyes ONCE AGAIN and had a very brief non-lucid dream. After this one, I woke up, with my vision being much more vivid now, and my brain was now telling me that I was dreaming the whole time. From what I experienced throughout the night, I think that I experienced the beginnings of out-of-body experiences during those two times I "woke up" at night. The thing was, I couldn't tell, so I just went back to sleep to my non-lucid dream. Did I just miss out on some pretty awesome OBEs or was I waking up in reality the whole time? Thanks for your answer!
