Green T's Experience

Experience description:   

When I was about 3 years old, I had what I believe was an OOBE.  I recall getting out of bed in the early morning.  The sun was already up and it appeared to be a normal morning of no significance.  I made my way out of my bedroom, down the hallway and into the living room and began looking around.  Everything appeared to be normal, except the light was different (had a greenish tint) and all was extremely quiet.  I found my baby-sister's playpen and tried to get in, but had trouble doing so because I could not touch it.  I became frightened at this realization and tried to call out to wake my family up, but I couldn't make any sound.  I then hid behind a large house plant for a while.  I don't recall who or what I was hiding from, I recall feeling incredibly alone, which scared me.  After a brief period of time, I went into my parents' room and tried to wake them up, but could not do so.  I tried to yell at them, but could make no sound.  I tried to shake them, but could not touch them.  Then I went back into my bedroom, where I saw myself sleeping and decided to lie back in bed and go to sleep. 

I know that it wasn't a dream and I have never experienced anything similar ever since.  The event has intrigued me to this day and gives me a creepy feeling whenever I think about it.
