Fianna J's Experience
I took a nap around 12pm between my classes. Which i have experienced obes before but always in the middle of the day. This one was particularly different though. I went to sleep and fell into REM because i did dream for a fact. Then after about 1 hour i awoke and just laid there. Then my body became very heavy and i couldn't move but my eyes were open.
I was staring at my ceiling then all of a sudden there a an extreme pressure and i was starting to rise. I wasn't frightened though because i was aware of what was happening. I rose to the ceiling and my face was about an inch from it, i could see across my room but from above. I then slowly fell back down but when i came down i was just above my body and i could hear my breath behind me. It was so insane and awesome because i was aware of being one but new that my physical body was also underneath me.
Well i did come into my body. the pressure was still there and i was very curious as to being able to control it because i have never attempted to before. well i picked up my had but it was out of body, my knee we up in the air and i took my hand and ran it through my knee. It was so cool because it went right through. I was also able to rise but i was unable to rise very far up. I did see thing with me on my bed. Two black creatures, maybe cats. And something else across my room it felt more powerful then the creatures but was keeping a distance. I think it knew that i would be scared if it came closer. But altogether it was a good experience.

What emotions did you experience following your experience? Well i see things differently in life and just knowing that i cant share this experience with a lot of other people because of their lack of knowledge which is very frustrating to me.
