Experience description:   

My husband and I were staying at a friends in Sydney and in the middle of the night, I awoke and found myself on the ceiling very very close to the light fitting. I looked down and saw my husband, I don't remember seeing myself.

It was a very strange feeling floating in the air.  I then heard a voice who said that He was God.  I questioned this and replied "How do I know you are God?"  And then every cell in my body seemed to somersault and jump for joy, it felt wonderful. I then said "Yes, I believe you, you are God."

After this we then had a conversation, I am sure I was given instructions but unfortunately I cannot remember them.  I cannot remember returning to the bed but I woke up in the morning as usual with apparently no affects.
