Experience description:   

It has happened a few times, but the most memorable is as follows: 

I was lying in bed, asleep, and I felt myself rise out of bed.  It felt very real, but not frightening.  As in every other time, I felt myself lay out, and "float" down the hallway, turning every corner in my house.  It was like I was actually moving through the house.  I left the house through the front door, but I don't know if I actually opened it or floated through it.  I remember it was dark outside, and I guided myself to an unknown house, and then inside of the house.  I vividly remember it being dark in the other house, and I remember seeing the furniture in the different rooms.  I don't remember if I saw anyone else in the house.  I left the house and went back to my own, and then woke up in my bed.  It was still night, and I was shaking, not so much from fear, but from the oddity of the whole experience.  There have been other times that I have felt myself float through the house, but I can't ever remember leaving except for the time I described.
