Bridgeen C's Experience
I was drifting off to sleep when I felt my soul leave my body, I could see myself asleep in bed. I asked myself was I asleep so I did a test and jumped off the ground and suddenly I was floating above my house, I could see all around my house so clearly. I then had this thought " what if I can't get back to my body" and as soon as I thought that, my soul went so fast falling back into my body and I woke up. The fast falling scared me a little.
