Experience description:   

One really hot summer night, I couldn't sleep in my bedroom so I went to the couch in my living room to try and get some sleep. When I fell asleep I wasn't dreaming. It was one of those coma sleeps where you are totally relaxed and numb. Then the strangest thing occurred. My spirit just sat up. I remember turning my head and I saw my body sleeping on the couch, out cold. I could feel a gravitational pull upwards and I remember thinking, I can make a conscience decision here, I can leave my body or go back into it and wake up. I decided to leave it and once I did I started floating upwards towards the ceiling. On the way up I kept flipping from floating on my stomach then to my back then to my stomach again. Like I was in water, but in air. When I reached the top I remember stopping and I had another decision I could leave and go through the roof (to who knows where I would end up) or go back into my body. As I was up at the ceiling deciding what I should do I was looking down at my body sleeping belly down facing myself still on the couch sleeping.

I decided to go through the ceiling and beyond. As soon as I thought to leave I heard these nasty loud screeching sounds. Awful sounds. Sounds I could never recreate or put to words. An almost evil dark presence. I quickly chose to go back into my body out of pure fear and faster than light my soul was rushing back to my body. When I re-entered, the impact of my soul hitting my body threw my chest up into a sitting position like if someone was getting electric shocked in the ER room to get their heart started again. My body was awake now, I was sweating and shaky, heart beating a million beats per second. I sat up while after that with total adrenalin trying to figure out what the hell happened to me. I was only 19, never knew anything about OBE's, still don't actually. Never had another one since. I have no Idea why it happened or what it was suppose to mean. I always wonder what would have happened if  I had of just kept going, or what that sound was that scared me into coming back...

Anyway, that's the best way I can explain my story, but words cant really describe what I really experienced.
