Dawn K's Experience

Experience description:   

this was a normal lat morning in an apartment in West Hollywood. I was sitting on the rug leaning up against the couch watching TV ( I believe), with company and my room mates. So, there was roughly 4 to 5 people in the small living room just hanging out. I was sitting there normally one minute the next second my visually perspective was changed to coming from the ceiling in like a 40 degree angle looking down on myself sitting there and everyone else just hanging out. I had all these internal thoughts racing through my mind, was I dying?, am I dead, what is happening?, should I be scared? etc. All of a sudden, as I sat their, my perspective left the room. My perspective was situated above the entrance door, suddenly, it started off with out me... It quickly and effortlessly  went through the top of the door between the frame and the ceiling  and began down the steps , down the drive way and made a right down the sidewalk , which was a slight down hill. My perspective was, I would guess 10 feet above the ground, but looking down. I freaked and ran out the door to catch up with it , I could tell when it was just above me because I could see me. I was really afraid I was going to die, I caught up with it and sort of willed it back down into my body, it came down slowly and sat back in. I can still not understand it, wished I could do it again, maybe I would not be so scared . it was absolutely weird.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No       at the time, in the 80s in LA, I spent most of my time partying, but what was weird was that I was completely sober this day and for this small part of my life I had my self pretty together. This question has plagued me since the experience, but when I read some of the other peoples experiences I now realize that I truly did have a real experience that I cannot explain nor have others really believe me who have never experience something like this

I have tried to make it happen, and I can't

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  confusion, and excitement. I felt special because I got to experience it, thought more might happen and it would eventually make sense, but it was never reconciled. I will never understand it.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      That I actually got to experience the event so as I have "matured" I cant rationalize away the "other side" I know what I experienced, no one can convince me it didn't happen. the worst part. nobody I have ever know has validated it. So I have sort of felt like I should keep my mouth shut. it has sort of made me hide it.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No       and I have tried.

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               Yes
