I woke up
naturally that morning and laid in bed a while, just thinking about getting up
for the day. It was a weekend and I had nothing I had to do, so I was just
decided to get up, and as I lift my hands to move to get up, I noticed that I
could not see my hands and arms. They were invisible. "Hum," I thought,
excited and trying to stay calm and clear headed, "I'm having an out of body
experience." I turned my arms over and was able to 'feel' them perfectly as I
normally would. I put my hands together, and was surprised that I could feel my
hands and arms like they were real and solid, like always. (I expected to 'pass
through' myself, I guess.) I looked down and saw my physical arms and touched
them. It was weird, like having 4 arms, I could feel both my invisible hands
moving on my physical arms, and my physical arms felt the hands stroking them.
over to my bed side table and reached out, expecting to 'pass through' it, and
again, was surprised to find it solid. I touched the pot of my plant and
rotated it so it faced away from me, so I could prove to myself later on that
this was really as real as I thought it was.
'spirit' arms remained completely invisible to me. I thought, "OK, let's get up
and really check this out." I raised my legs, and they were both invisible
too. I tried to lift my head, but it wouldn't come up. So I reached up with my
spirit hands and tried to pull my head up 'sit up' style, and had a HUGE pain
shoot up my neck and into my head.
It hurt so
bad I decided to give up the adventure and try to get back into my body
completely. I tried to get my arms inside my physical arms, but they laid on
top, not going in. I had to think about it to make my invisible arms 'phase'
and go inside. I lifted my arms, but the invisible arms came out again. I put
them in again and wiggled them around, and this time when I raised my arms, my
physical arms came up, too.
I sat up,
still in great pain in my neck and head. I looked at the table. The plant was
indeed turned around, my 'proof' to myself that what I experienced was real.
The headache was like a pulled neck muscle and lasted most of the day.
