Cornelio M's Experience

Experience description:   

I was in a deep sleep when suddenly, I felt myself waking up in a different bed and a different room. 

I could feel the sheet texture and the bed cover.  There's a type of bed cover made out palm leaf in south America called 'petate'.  By that I knew where I was.  It happen again and this same this feeling crossed my mind.  I was at my mom's house in Mexico!  I looked around.  I saw a window and the room was dark.  I touched the bed cover again and I got convinced.  It was that type of bed cover at my mother's house.  I told myself that I needed to come back to my body.  I felt myself starting to mix with a cloud that was twisting and going to a hole.  Then I was in my room at my home. 

I remember some 17 years in the past when this occurrence was happening.  I lived this experience at least once a week for about two months, and then it stopped until now. I still needed to be sure, I have never been in that house in my life.  Mom's house was built 5 years after I moved to the U.S.  So, I call my sister who also lives in mom's house.  She corroborated that there is an empty room and a bed with that type of cover that was placed there a day before my experience.  She asked, 'It happen to you again?' She knew because we use to live together while in college. At that time I told her about this experiences.

What I find weird is that every time that happened, it feel like I'm not dreaming, like I'm actually there.  I can feel the ground under my feet.  I can feel breathing.  I can touch around.  So for me, it feels like  I'm there with a second body.
