Brandon's Experience

Experience description:   

At my parents house we had a giant plastic sandbox with a lid. The Lid was caved in and was filled with super thick ice because it was winter time. I knew I had an action figure or something in the sandbox at the time so I tried taking the lid off. Sense the ice was on the lid it was really really really heavy .. but I thought " its just ice I could move it and it will slide off and I'll just have a giant ice block thing on my deck... well I was wrong. My body got extremely dizzy when I tried to lift the ice off of the lid and suddenly I could see myself from above like a birds eye view of what I was doing...I was still very dizzy and every motion seemed like it was flashing... like if you were to look at a book full of pictures and flipped the pages and it turned into a movie. It lasted for about 3 seconds and I was back to normal. I went inside right after and haven't really told many people about it. I don't understand what happened and why I was looking at myself from what it seemed like a different dimension.
