Experience description:   

I was about 12/13 years old, when after going to bed one night, which I shared with my brother, I floated out of my body during the early hours of the morning.

I found this very strange and unable to do anything about it.I looked down upon myself sleeping and my brother in the next bed.The room was dark and I headed towards the window for some reason. I was scared as i thought it was going to smash but it didn't and I went right through it as though it wasn't there. I emerged the other side into a sight that was not the usual view from my bedroom window !

The view was bright, nothing but white bright light, it didn't hurt my eyes but felt it would, if it had shone on me 'normally'.

After a while i came across my mother's mum, who had passed away a few years earlier. she looked beautiful. she told me I shouldn't be here, it wasn't my time yet and I had to go back as there was things I had to do yet.I told her I wanted to stay, but she was firm and said I must go back.I was overwhelmed by the feeling of peace and love whilst I was there and did not want to come back, but I did.I was not forced or felt pushed to return but gently eased back into my body.

I awoke with a new life, an understanding and inner peace which has never gone away from me.I felt knowledgable about things, I knew God ! and what awaits us all.

I felt it was my spiritual being and I had returned to where I came from, home,

God's care, if you like. I know this was no dream, you forget your dreams, this was real, a glimpse by mistake into my future,my destiny.
