Arana R's Experience

Experience description:   

Sleeping in my moms bed last night at around 11:30 PM, 1 1/2 hours after I went to sleep, I woke up and realized I was on the ceiling.  I was looking down at myself and my mom in my moms bed.  There were dark shadows moving/rocking from side to side.  They were standing on the ground shoulder to shoulder around the bed and were about 4 feet tall or a bit taller.  I don't remember coming back into my body or falling, I just felt scared and needed to get away from those things and I was instantly in my body.  I immediately woke and gasped and sat up with my eyes open.  Mom woke and asked 'what's wrong, what happened, did you have a dream?'.  I said, 'no they were just showing me a different way to sleep.'  We both went back to sleep and it didn't happen again.
