waking, I was lying in bed in the morning. I began to meditate, since I felt my
mind was clear. I heard an increasingly loud buzzing in my ears and the buzzing
morphed into a vibration over my entire body. I felt myself separating from my
body, I glaced down and saw that I was now had bright lemon yellow body. The
dresser mirror was near but I was afraid to look into it. I boobed around a
while near the ceiling, then my body knew to assume a sort of swimming position
with arms at my side and I was able to "swim" toward the bedroom wall. I found,
however, I wasn't able to penetrate the walls, they felt solid. The long window,
however, was quite easy to penetrate, I felt the pressure of the glass as I
passed through it.
anxious to prove to myself that this was a valid experience, so I looked for
objects they I could check on in the physical state. Once out the window, I
headed for a large tree at the side of the yard. I examined it closely in every
detail, but saw nothing unusual. I spotted some broken pieces of a clay pot in
the yard then glided back into my bedroom. I attempted to turn on the light
switch. Although I could move the switch to "on" and hear it, the light failed
to respond. I then felt a pull at the bottom of my spine which I couldn't resist
even though I wanted to stay out of my body. I went back into my body head first
and had no after effects. I later went into the yard and the pieces of pot were
there as seen in the OOB. I've found that OOBs, for me, require gathering a type
of energy that can only be stored via meditation where certain breathing and
shutting out of thoughts are essential. I've experienced OOBs where other
people/animals and the past and future were involved, they have all been
exhilarating and wonderful adventures, nothing negative has ever occurred so

shards. In another OOB, I attempted to pull another person out of their body so
they could share the experience with me, but that was definitely a mistake, I
thought their spirit body would be difficult to pull out, but it was so easy I
accidentally slammed their spirit body against the wall. Later, this person
complained of a severe headache. Also, I know I broke some sort of "spiritual
law" by doing this.

you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience
that you did not have prior to the experience?
Yes A couple of nights before 9/11 I had an experience where I saw 4 burned
out suns, charred but with flames radiating from the edges of the
disks-descending from the sky. I knew that was the beginning of the end. I
worked at ATT then and my manager called to tell me I must come to work
regardless of the situation. I refused her, explaining I wanted to be with my
family. She said people really needed communications now. But I still refused.
When this event actually occurred, my manager did call, but to tell me not to
come to work as ATT's whole communication complex was under the twin towers and
had been completely wiped out. This experience was a dream though and not an OOB.
I related this dream several people before the event occurred.
you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?
Yes yes, I
feel now that there are other beings who really do care about what happens to
us, they want to warn and guide us about important things because sometimes we
loss sight of what is really important. In fact, there is a whole system set up
in the spirit world and there are spiritual laws of nature that exist just as
there physical laws of nature.
has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices?
orthodox in my religious attitude. As far as OOBs are concerned, I simply don't
talk about it to people. But the out of body experience opened new realms of
possibilities in my physical life, I have made radical changes which turned out
for the better although it was tough in the beginning.
your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?
that there is a whole other dimension out there, and it's not science fiction
gives one a more objective attitude. I tend to see the whole picture now instead
of details. I have more guts to accomplish my goals. Before, I always worried
about what other people thought, now I don't.
you shared this experience with others?
did you experience following your experience?
spirit of adventure, a yearning to know more.
was the best and worst part of your experience?
It bothered me
that I was afraid to look at myself in the mirror in my out of body state, so I
did experience fear, but for the most part, there was a unique feeling of being
completely carefree and free. The best part was the flying

questions brought back that particular experience in much more detail to my
mind. I feel I have provided every detail.
