Emily H's Experience


I had been feeling inexplicably tired all day. I had not done anything that was outside my normal routine, because of feeling so tired for no apparent reason I had been having a pretty lazy day.

I decided to go lay in bed for a little while to rest. After a little while of relaxing I started to feel as if I was rising through the air, and then could see my bedroom from a new perspective as if I was floating above my bed. I was in the air looking down on myself lying there. As I watched I saw a pink/red orb emerge out of my ear and to a few feet away from my head. After a few seconds the orb slowly moved back into my head, then I was suddenly back in my body again.

There was nothing unusual building up to this event and I have never had an experience like this before. I felt quite disturbed but very intrigued by my experience however have no idea what it actually means or how it happened. After I felt at peace and very mellow, as if I had been meditating for a long time but also rejuvenated and well rested. Almost as if my out of body experience had healed me and refreshed me in some way. I still do not understand what happened or why.
