Everything about my ld was normal, I didn't have complete control but I was able to change my environment around me, and I was also able to fly! The thing is, well for some reason I could not feel anything, nothing physical and no emotions. I knew I was dreaming, and had control over my dream but that was all.
When I rubbed my hands together to make the scene clearer, I did not actually feel my hands. When I was flying, I did not feel the wind or even that stomach-dropping feeling. When I realised I was dreaming, I remember I was happy, but I didn't necessarily feel happiness like I do in real life.
Ive never heard of anyone having an LD experience in which they cant feel any emotions or feel their dream body before. The loss of the emotions part is highly unusual. LD isnt much different to being awake or feels the same usually as far as emotions go. Sounds like you didnt have much waking consciousness there at all.. (maybe as you suggested yourself, it could of been a dream you were lucid dreaming or maybe just a very low level LD).
Oh also, just before this I experience sleep paralysis. But it was weird. First of all, I was on my stomach which is different than normal. Secondly, I felt this horrible, aching pain on my back. It felt like someone was continuously hitting me with a hammer. I knew this was simply a part of the sleep paralysis, so once I calmed down it went away (and I entered the dream where i eventually became lucid). But I remember I could actually move my arms, I was attempting to hold the area where the pain was. But you're not supposed to be able to move your arms (I could not move anywhere else apart from my eyes and arms)? Do you know anything about this?
And that doesnt sound like a normal sleep paralyses experience. With sleep paralyses.. one is aware of how their physical body is laying.. you can feel it and experience being in it but one cant move. I wonder if you were actually dreaming having sleep paralyses. One with sleep paralyses also cant move arms... as soon as one manages to move with sleep paralyses, even a finger or toe, it breaks the sleep paralyses state.
I'd say you were 1/ either dreaming this or 2/ your astral body had turned within your physical body and hence you were feeling your astral body. (note: doing astral stuff awarely can trigger off kundalini with happens in like beats, waves or shocks and may give aching pain, which will come from the base of the spine, which I guess if in a dream state one could interpretate it as being hit over and over, "rhythmicly" with a hammer.. Was your spine pain was focused in the base of the spine? and did it have a steady beat?)
