Experience description:   

A friend of mine came to pick my brother and me up at my dad's house.  My brother and I went to the car, and I got in the back seat.  My brother realized that he'd left something in the car, and he went to get it.  He didn't say what it was, he just ran into the house to get it.  I figured my dad would stop him to talk to him and that he would be a few minutes, so I laid my head back and relaxed.  My dad had introduced my brother and me to remote viewing a few days earlier, and I was fascinated by it, so once I got comfortable in the back seat of the car, I decided to try to see what my brother was doing in the house. 

Suddenly, I heard loud buzzing and crackling sounds, and they started getting louder.  At the same time, I could see a bright light coming from out of the distance (I had my eyes closed).  Once the light and sounds reached a climax, I heard a loud bang like something being ripped apart.  I guess the best comparison would be a sonic boom.  Immediately after that, I could see everything around me in the car, and I began to float above my body and out of the roof of the car.  I hovered about 3 feet above the car for a few second, long enough to see my brother walking out of the house, carrying his CD's in a carrying case.  If I had been watching from inside the car, I wouldn't have been able to see the CD's.  Then, my brother got back in the car and shut the door.  I came back to my body slowly and opened my eyes.

I felt that if I returned, I would be leaving my home, but I decided that I needed to return anyway.

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         Yes

Many.  I've felt and seen people's thoughts.  I've traded consciousness with another person.  I've traveled out of my body with another person  I've been able to feel other people's pain.  The best example is about my step-father.  I had a vision of him getting sick and going to the hospital for a long stay.  Two weeks later, he was diagnosed with leukemia.  For a while, things were going okay, and I felt okay.  Then, it was time for his stem cell transplant.  I started feeling worse, and having more vivid dreams at night.  One day while I was at work, I had a vision of him going into a coma.  Three days after his transplant, he went into a coma.  He spent three weeks in I.C.U., and the doctors were very negative about the situation.  All the people around the I.C.U. made it clear that they didn't think he would wake from the coma.  One night, in my sleep, I had a dream that my mother and I were standing in the room with him, and he opened his eyes.  He looked at us and told us that he loved us.  One week later, he came out of the coma, and it happened exactly the way it did in my dream.  I also had a vision of him dying two weeks before he died.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes

Before, I didn't believe that I could do it.

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes

My brother has experienced things like this also, so he's not really surprized.  Most people just think I'm posessed by the devil or something.

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               No

There's no way to completely describe it, but I did the best I could.
