Anne W's Experience

Experience description:   

It was lunch time, we just finished our meeting, but some still in the room, talking with my boss. I walked out and talked with one manager what we will eat for lunch. I walked to the stairs alone. The manager still want to talk with my boss. I looked down to the stair. It is quite high. Suddenly I felt myself uncontrolled and my foot couldn't step to the ground. I felt frightened and confused. How such things happened. I felt myself higher and higher. I looked up, see the ceiling. It was closer and closer. I couldn't think, only prayed, God, help me. Suddenly I felt someone taped my shoulder. The manager was there. I thought I was day dream. We began chit chat, then suddenly I felt myself flying again. The manager stopped talking, suppressed, asked, "Anne, can you fly?" "No, I don't know what and how" he looked frightened. I were still flying higher and higher. I felt someone or something controlled me, I couldn't do anything. I don't like the situation and felt very frightened, too. I tried to look around, up and down, right and left, but couldn't look behind. I asked the manager, who was behind me cause I couldn't look behind me. He was so frightened and answer "nobody" and he scream "I don't want to know, I don't wan 

t to see, I don't want to talk to others". I really frightened. My logic came and thought if the thing behind me, I should go forward, then I decided to jump. I saw the stairs became above me and my feet were around the manager's waist. I struggled in my heart once, but I decided don't want the thing controlled me. I pray "My God, forgive me, if You want to take my life, then it will be Your Will" The manager run downward. I jumped forward with my head first then rolling myself because I didn't want my head hurt. I rolled and bumped at my back. Kept my head down to my heart, and rolled again. My feet also bruised little and swollen as I landed on the end of the stair. I couldn't wake up from bed for 2 days as my back was really hurt and bruised and swollen.
