Diane T's Experience
1994; I was newly married and pregnant with my second child. My husband was in
the military and deployed for 6 months on a military ship. One night while I was
sleeping in my bed: I felt like I visited him on the ship. We spoke and he led
me down a corridor. He told me we could spend some time together "in here". That
was a small room with narrow beds fastened to the wall, almost like bunk beds.
The space was very small and narrow. So we laid down on our sides facing each
other and just talked for a bit. I wrote to him in a letter after I woke up and
described the experience to him.
In 2008; I was in a long distance relationship, dating a man who lived about 4 hours away. One night while sleeping in my bed: I felt like I visited him at his home. We were walking through his house toward his back yard to go outside and he told me "be careful, I just broke some glass earlier and I might not have gotten it all cleaned up". I was barefooted, during my visit and I did step on a small sliver of glass during the experience and stated, it's nothing I will get it out later. When I woke up in the morning, I immediately remembered the glass in my foot and reached down and picked a piece of glass from my foot. Then I remembered the experience. I talked to my boyfriend later that day and he told me that the night before he dropped a full / brand new bottle of alcohol the night before and was upset. But I already knew cause I had the glass in my foot.
