Joey's Experience

Experience description:   

I was ill suffering from a back problem that included slipped discs.

I was sitting in the family room in a recliner chair which was more comfortable.

Down the hall was the master bedroom with double doors and I could view it.

The double doors burst open and a very bright light object (reminded me of sputnik) started down the hall towards where I was sitting.

My feeling at that time were extreme fear and I seemed to know that this light was heading towards me.

It came into the room where I was sitting and approached me.

It stopped directly in front of me for a moment before slamming into my chest.

I was terrified at this moment.

The light slammed into my chest area and it threw me back against the chair.

Suddenly, I was floating down the hallway towards the master bedroom and into the room.

I floated above the bed and could see my husband sleeping below.

I do not remember if an image of myself was in the bed also but I think it was.

I do not remember the object leaving or how I got back to the chair I was sitting in.

I seemed to be conscious of sitting in the chair again, the object was gone and I was very scared and shaken.

The event is vivid as I think of it but to this day I cannot tell if it happened or was just a bad dream.
