Katherine B's Experience

Experience description:   

My husband said goodbye to me as he usual does in the morning before heading to work.  I was fully awake. It was around 7a.m. I put my glasses on and looked at the clock and decided I would try to sleep a bit more but found it hard to relax.  I laid there with my glasses still on with my eyes shut but definitely awake.  I was thinking how hard it was for me to fall asleep these past few years and all my husband has to do is sit in his chair and tilt his head back and boom he's asleep.  As I lay there I noticed some type of static electric type charge in my covers sort of repelling my sheet blanket with my upper heavy one away from each other.  The heavy blanket lifted and started to slide down off of me then I didn't feel any heavy cover on me at all but the sheet was still on me.  I opened my eyes and found my heavy blanket now completely off of me and pulled it back on me again.  As I laid there I thought, boy I hope that doesn't happen again! 

Well the same electric type feeling came back and this time it was on my body too.  At that point is where something weird happened.  All of a sudden I was lifting from the bed and then in a different place altogether and it was real in everyway.  I felt everything and the background noise during the latter part of it was like a radio that had about three stations crossing over each other with static and garbled noises.  I went all over the place sometimes walking and sometimes floating.  In buildings and by streams and outdoor things. I went to a place with a tree and there were two dogs there.  One ran up to me and it was BB the dog I used to have here that died violently by a neighbor boy shooting him multiple times with his .22 rifle.  This was about five years ago that he died. I petted him and his fur was smooth.  I thought to myself, boy I had forgotten how smooth and soft BB's fur was.  He seemed fit and happy to see me and was playful.  Then I went indoors in a room and floated up toward the ceiling.  I stopped at the ceiling. I thought wow, maybe I am dead and got frightened because all this time I didn't think that thought at all.  Just as I thought that thought some arms from behind me hugged me.  It wasn't scary but comforting and loving.  I asked who it was a few times who was hugging me. since I couldn't see her behind me.  It was clear this was a woman though even though I didn't see her.  The woman's voice said she was Lynnette or Lonnette. Then that was it and I was in my bed again.  I guess it was a dream entirely but it didn't seem like a dream at all.  I do not know of any Lynnette and have no relatives by that name.  I have asked a few close friends and no one knows or has known a person by such a name.  I found out my uncle who is not expected to live much longer had a first wife with the name Loraine from what I am told but that is the closest I have found to a connection. I don't know why this happened to me or any messages or meanings of wisdom or future events.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No      

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? No

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?           Pretty alert.  I thought I was totally awake.

Was the experience dream like in any way?   No

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Uncertain      When I tried to see who was hugging me, I looked at my shoulders and I was a body form.  The person hugging me was not however.  She was invisible to my eyes.  I didn't seem to be wearing cloths.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            Good feelings and feelings of confidence.  Then scared feelings when I thought that perhaps I was dead now.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           The radio station static sounds.  As if three or four stations were crossing over one another.  None of the stations sounds I could understand as it was garbled and intertwined.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes     I can't explain it too well.  But from being in my bed to those other places would be impossible.

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?    Uncertain            I just had a sense of confidence and being free.  Sort of feeling superhuman.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?             Yes     When I floated to the ceiling in that room, I could not go past the ceiling.  My back and head were stopped by the ceiling.  It was like a helium balloon in a room up on the ceiling.

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       No

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      Best was floating around places and seeing BB.  The worst was thinking oh my maybe I am dead.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        Would like to know if any of this sounds like a OBE and possibilities on why it happened to me spontaneously.
