Experience description:      

I was at my Mother's house.  My Mother was in her bedroom watching T.V.  My son was asleep in the guest bedroom.  No one else was there.  I had fallen asleep on her living room floor, on my back with throw pillow under my head, in front of the T.V. set.  A fast deep sleep.  Not dreaming. Deep sleep. 

I heard myself speaking, like I was talking to myself, but my lips weren't moving.  I said out loud, in my unconscious, I'm dreaming. The sound of my voice, and the energy in my body, was if I was awake.  This made me aware.  Then I saw that I was in a bedroom, with two separate beds, and there was a dresser over to the left.  I was startled by the way I viewed the room and realized that my back was on the ceiling of the room.  I then was frighten, being confused I looked around the room and it registered to me that my back was on the ceiling, my breasts were dangling.  I felt my breast dangle.

Now I was more than frightened or scared.  I said out loud, but my lips never moved, "I have to get out of here".  I knew I was conscious in my dream and I didn't know how to pull myself out of it.  I shouted, "NO".  And again, I shouted, with more force "NO".  I was out.

I sat straight up, and was scared.  I looked over at the red digital clock on the T.V. and noticed the time.  Wiped my forehead, and laid back down on the floor.

I was back floating on the ceiling, feeling my breast dangling.  Thinking or saying without my lips moving, OH my God, I'm back again.  I felt a little more comfortable. I was looking around that bedroom.  Then it hit me, I've been in here to long.  I have to get out of here. Still feeling my breast dangling, I screamed "NO" real forcefully.  I was back in my mom's living room.  I immediately looked at that clock.  I couldn't believe only 1 or 2 mins. have gone by since I looked at it the first time.  I could have sworn I was in that bedroom on the ceiling for at least 30 to 40 min.

I heard my Mother scream out "What is going on out there??????"  I ran into her bed, under the covers, shaking.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?  No.     

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words?  No. 

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?    No.     

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?  I feel that I am suppose to know that my soul left my body, due to the FACT that my breast were moving back and forth.  I knew I was asleep on the living room floor when I was floating on the ceiling because, I was in shock in the "dream" how I could feel my breast dangle downward.  I was completely aware.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?  No.   My body was sleeping on the living room floor.  My conscious was with my subconscious and I truly believe feeling my breasts dangle was a sign for me to believe what was happening so that I could not ever question myself.
