Cassidy B's Experience

Experience description:   

well, I was laying in bed asleep I think. it was strange the next thing I know, I am floating toward the ceiling, hovering over my body. it was unreal. I went to my body and I remember moving my arms and bending my legs. it was lifeless. and almost instantly I was standing in front of a house. I had never been there before. and I remember that it was around dusk and I remember the porch, the walkway, and across the road, which was small a two way, I remember the wooded area. the house was on a hill, and the next thing I remember was hearing loud music, I turned and looked at the car, it was a light brownish colored Cadillac. it was an older car but I guess pimped out. and the people in the car just started shooting. I remember getting hit in the chest falling back and then I just woke up. I was back in my room and other than being scared and shook up I was ok...

LOCATION DESCRIPTION:  Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures?            Uncertain      after the experience like two weeks later I go to Ohio with my sister and her husband. we are going to the museum. I wasn't supposed to go. but she had an extra ticket because her friend couldn't make it. before we go to the museum, we visit another of their friends. before we made a turn, my body was screaming leave. the turn we made was to a hill, vine street. that turn took me to the exact place that I was shot. before we got to the house (which was the same as in my "dream") I told my sister I had been here and she replied with a no I hadn't. at the friends house, we smoked a lot of kind bud...more, way more than I could handle. I started feeling sick so I begged my sister to meet my dad half way and I went home. I didn't go to the museum, so I didn't go back to that house.

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       No       Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?   Yes     I have visited places with friends (that I had never gone before) and asked them things like who died here, and my friends look at me crazy because usually someone has really died in that same spot. also I have felt ghost/spirits. I felt a cruel almost like someone is staring you down feeling and I have said what I was doing and asked them to stop and surprisingly they did. I was cleaning a house for an elderly lady, and she was in bed I was cleaning the living room and got that feeling. after I explained what I was doing the ghost (feeling) left and when I was finished I asked the lady about it and she showed me newspaper clippings of a woman who was murdered in the building (but a different apartment) back in the 70s.
