Cherie K's Experience
evening I was lying in my bed when all of a sudden I was standing in front of my
body, a few feet away looking at it. It was very shocking and very unexpected. I
didn't know what to do, having almost no knowledge of these incidences so I
leaned over and tried to squish myself back into my physical form, which of
course did not work. I remember being very upset and disconcerted at not being
able to go back into my body when I found myself - again very suddenly - flying
through space at a tremendous speed. I was travelling in a huge arc, thousands
of miles wide, (above the earth, I think) and although I was very far away from
my body I knew I was getting closer to it. I got closer and closer and finally I
coukl feel the molecules in my body being pulled into it's physical form,
stronger and stronger as the distance lessened. It was like some kind of
metaphysical suction; I can't quite describe it accurately in words. All I know
is that it was the most satisfying feeling the last few seconds as the process
completed. The best was the most satisfying sort of 'pop' at the very end. I
haven't had anything like this happen since then, I think because for a long
time I was afraid of experiencing it again. But now I think I would welcome it,
if only to experience that feeling again.
