Experience description:   

I was about to fall asleep and at this point was having a dream with the face of three men, the faces themselves where clear but unfamiliar to me.  i was going from face to face starting with the first then the second man then finally when i looked into the face of the third there was an unexplained emotion that felt very wrong about this third face and was if there was a danger or something not right about this person.  at this point no more than 3 seconds after this I was awake but felt paralyzed and had this strong feeling as my mind or vision leapt from my own body to the other body that was my own above me but not more than a few inches. 

The back and forth was like a strobe light feeling of vision between the two bodies and I tried to yell out to my partner next to me in bed but could only manage the smallest of sounds. i attempted this 3 to 4 times with the same result and then tried to reach out to my partner to help me.  as i felt paralyzed and at this point only managed to move my hand a few centimeters but it took all my effort to do so as if moving a bus with the hand i was trying to reach out with.

Then around 10 to 20 seconds later i finally yelled out "whoa" and was in the one body again and able to move and talk and felt as if i was never asleep and alert as ever before.  I was shaking from the experience and discussed the event with my partner who later informed me that at the exact same time i yelled whoa that a picture in our kitchen fell to the ground and was a picture that had never fallen in that nature before.  It was as if a presence had moved it.
