Emma's Experience

Experience description:   

Me and my boyfriend went to sleep one evening and then next thing I remember I was floating in spirit and watching myself asleep and my boyfriend next to me. I became a little confused about it and then realized I wasn't in my body so I attempted to move my fingers, I watched and my fingers moved. Then I just watched myself sleep but became a little anxious and wanted to get back into my body. It didn't happen straight away and I was almost pleading with myself to get back in as I didn't know why I was out of it or if I was dead. I finally managed to get back in and as soon as I did I woke and screamed at my  boyfriend to put the light on. We sat there for about 5 minutes but I refused to tell him what was wrong and eventually we fell back to sleep- I feared it would happen again. Next time I woke I was woken by my boyfriend who looked startled. I sensed he had an OBE too but didn't tell him about mine. Eventually after probing he told me exactly what I had experienced happened to him. After a little further shock I explained that's what happened to me as well and we both were speechless. We eventually went back to sleep. He told his Mum who knew a psychic lady who visited and told us that she thought an epileptic died of an attack in the room previously but that we had had OBE's.
