Amy S's Experience
It was midday.
I was at a caregiver's house, in the second floor playroom. I was in a room
with about seven other children. We were all playing. I was in the middle of
the room building with Lincoln logs. Then, suddenly I found myself outside of
the house, floating, looking in the window watching myself and the other
children playing. This only lasted a few seconds I think, but I was very alert
and aware. There was no sense of fear only a strange curiosity. Within a few
seconds I was simply back in my body building with the Lincoln logs. At the
time I don't remember being upset or unsettled about what had happened. This
didn't happen until I was much older (in my teens) and experiencing a variety of
other unexplainable phenomenon. It seems I have the tendancy to see and hear
ghosts, also a keen awareness of dreams - a few of which have come true. Also,
my sister and I have had some strange dream connections. I have never had this
experience again but feel a certain 'psychic' ability which I do not experiment
with and frankly, do my best to avoid. I am interested in any information or
research being done in this or similar areas as these are experiences that have
affected me since I was at least 4 years old.
