I've been experimenting with increasing my vibrations, in different forms and at different times. Last night I did a very interesting exercise, I would raise my vibration as far as I could, and next very quickly integrate all the feelings that came, this in intervals of around 2 seconds: vibration-integration-vibration-integration-vibration-integration...
After it I felt larger. I sat and felt like if I really was larger, physically.
I've been doing this the last couple of months, experimenting with my vibrations, and I've been feeling a bit "spacey".. I can't think of a better word.
Has this happened to you?
Feeling spacey when doing vibrational work could be due to a lack of grounding. Other symptoms are things like heart palpitations, static shocks, insomnia, dizziness, eyes flickering, falling asleep when meditating and having brilliant ideas but not being able to execute them. Grounding is a really important part of the spiritual journey - it essentially means being in your body, conscious of your surroundings and present and available for whatever happens. By using grounding techniques you are bringing your consciousness into your body - this is your goal whilst you have a body. Many people who meditate regularly do not ground themselves properly and may tend to "hang out" in the ethers above the body.
On a recent channelling course we learnt a couple of grounding techniques and the channeller warned us that if we aren't in our bodies, it creates a vacuum for something else to move in. Without being properly grounded, you are vulnerable to taking on energy from other people and even other entities. Also, integrating emotions is much easier if you are fully present in your body so it should improve your ability to integrate.
A good, easy grounding technique is to imagine tree roots from the bottom of your feet anchoring you securely into the Earth. (Your feet need to be flat on the floor when you do this visualisation). Another is to imagine yourself cloaked in an earthy colour such as deep red, terracotta or brown.
I use a technique from The Pleiadian Workbook on a daily basis. It is a little long to type out here but it might be worth you getting hold of the book. Alternatively, there are many grounding techniques available on the internet so have a look around and see what suits you.
There are also certain crystals you can carry around that "ground" you - two that spring to mind are black tourmaline and hematite. You need to carry a tumblestone around with you in a trouser* pocket - any where below the waistline. There are many other crystals but any good crystal shop will be able to advise you.
In The Pleiadian Workbook the author suggests really focusing on getting a good grounding technique going for a week before trying any other processes. It is that important.
Quick on-the-go methods to ground - eat something, drink water.

Following on from my comments about protection below ... the danger of being ungrounded isn't so much about full-on spirit possession (as seen in Hollywood style horror films) - that is incredibly rare. The danger is more from general negative energies in the atmosphere from various sources - negative thoughts directed at you from others, manipulation by other people and general negativity either from individuals or groups. You leave yourself more open to these things if you aren't in control of your own psyche. Here is an interesting article on grounding and meditation and she mentions feeling "spacey" as being one of the signs of not being properly grounded "Love, Shamanism and Meditation" by Stacey Nemour at Daily Heal. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stacey-nemour/shamanism-meditation_b_855796.html

Here is another explanation from Naisha Ahsian in The Book of Stones: "Smoky quartz is one of the most powerful grounding and clearing stones available. Like the smoke of a sage bundle, the energy of Smoky Quartz cleanses and clears the aura and energetic systems. It assists one in connecting to the Earth and completing the electrical circuit between one's physical body and the planet. Without this completed circuit, one's energy systems are very much like a high-tension power line that has snapped. Though there is plenty of energy available, there is nowhere for it to go. The energy is released through the aura into the environment, which can cause unpleasant poltergeist-like effects - even energetic "burnout" and disturbance of the nervous system. By grounding, one completes the circuit, gives the excess energy a safe outlet and reestablishes a healthy energetic flow in the body."
I'm wondering if you are dehydrated. Are you using breath work to increase your vibrations? Being dehydrated or doing breath work could account for spacey feeling. Here is an article about how it feels to be in the vortex. When my vibes are high - I find clarity & feel joy and love. The Hicks call the Vortex the magical swirl. I love that - magical swirl!

Every since I have been doing brainwave entrainment, well, I dont exactly feel "spacey" but I have experiences of..... how can I put it into words? Ok the feeling of being awake for over 24 hrs and feeling like you are going to crash and burn if you don't get sleep soon?? But not as extreme. Weird, I know, but I feel like that, even when I'm not tired, whiling I'm standing, when i get in bed, its like not being in my body totally. Like my Soul, is like wearing a body 2 sizes too big, along with that feeling of crash and burn!! I hope no one thinks I'm crazy, but last night, I tossed and turned all night, I tried holding myself, contorting my body, so I felt more secure in my body. To no avail! what is this feeling? Does anyone have any ideas besides me being dehydrated?
