Hami A's Experience
was alone in my home and was sleeping in my bed. In the morning about 10 when I
was about to wake up suddenly I found my self floating in the air above my
physical body sleeping on the bed. I was shocked for the first seconds and I did
not know where I was and who I was. I saw my body clearly and I heard the sound
of my neighbors speaking but at the same time I heard some noise or sound from
somewhere else which I did not know from where they came from. after I realized
my situation and my body and found that I was out of my body the first thing
came to my mind was that I was dead. I tried to touch my body but I saw that my
hand pass my body and I could not to touch it. Surprisingly I was not frightened
at all- despite my felling about death before the experience. I was in kind of
release and told my self: " Am I dead? yes I am dead." the only thing which I
was worried about was my husband and say to myself:" poor my husband. when he
will come back home and will see me dead on the bed he will be so unhappy." when
I was telling these things to my self I heard the voice of two person who was
laughing and saying:" what is she saying? she thinks she is dead." and at that
time I did not understand what happened that I found myself awake on the bed. I
was so exited and frightened at the same time when I wake up. before that I did
not have any fear but after I awoke I was in shocked for some hours. then when I
told this to my husband, because he had lots of studies in these sort of things
he explain that it was a OBE and is so wonderful. then I become interested in it
and then I tried hard to do that deliberately but the mote I tried, the less I
was successful. some times after that I succeed to go out of my body but hardly
and had a bad feeling after that . so I quit it and now for some month I have
not thought about it.
