GŁnes Experience

Experience description:   

Hello, my name is GŁnes, I am 32 years old, in my twenties I befell an experience, I can't name, I want to tell you. I lived in an apartment with my family, my sister who was a toddler then, and I shared a room. I slept in the upper bunk, my sister in the bed under mine. A night, about ten p.m., I took a magazine to read, lay in my bed and somehow I was carried away. When I opened my eyes, I found myself at the ceiling, my face was touching the ceiling. I could feel the cold ceiling. I was scared that I would fall down and tried to hold the ceiling with my hands. I didn't think that I was dead at this point, that thought didn't even enter my mind. Outside of our apartment was a cafe, I could hear the voices very clear as if I was being with them.

I was fixed at my position at the ceiling, I could turn to my right side a little bit and I saw my body in my bed and I was scared. I felt my eyes closing and then I woke up! It was now 10:30 pm. I was sweating and went to the balcony and I saw the people still staying at the cafe. I don't know what I experienced, I am a faithful person, I practice my religion as much as a I can and will continue, this experience was unbelievable and surely it wasn't dream. Thank you.

When we live, we don't feel as we feel, we conceive feelings for materials but a strange cold sensation.

At that time, I was scared that I would fall down from the ceiling and I tried to hold myself at the ceiling, I tried to claw the ceiling with my fingernails.

Many people complain that their senses are limited to feel, how could I feel? In a general meaning, you can ask this.
