Justin A's Experience
I was a quiet night. It happened around 4:30 in the morning (I remember looking at my cell phone checking the time. I can hear my mother and sister down stairs in the kitchen talking and eating breakfast. I didn't have to be up for another two hours, so I lay motionless in bed trying to fall back to sleep. Then all of the sudden I felt a very strong vortex of energy surrounding my body and then within a short moment my whole body from head to toes began to vibrate very very strongly especially around my head. The best way to describe what it felt like is that I felt I was being electrocuted, but there was no pain. I continue to just lay there in bed I thought to myself that "this is awkward" At first I was scared, but thought to myself "stay clam let's see what happens." Then I felt my feet and legs raising out of my body and the floating sensation worked it way all the way up my body with my head being the last to leave my body. When my feet raise, it felt like someone grab my feet and starting pull me out of bed and anchor my feet to my bedroom floor. I was completely out of body standing in the middle of my room. My room still look the same as if I was awake in this reality, but with some slight changes. I remember looking over to the bed and I saw my physical body still laying in bed. I was still able to hear, see, and think. I thought I have died and cross-over and that's when I became very scared and all of this sudden I snap out of the experience and returned to my body. It was a very spiritual event and feeling.
