Experience description:   

I was sleeping in my own bed and my husband was at work so it must have been early morning.  All of the sudden, I was out of my body and floating up in the corner of my room.  I remember that I could see that my arms were lying on the outside of the blankets and that I was covered only to the waist with the bedding.  I was frightened and returned immediately to my body.  Some days later, I awoke to my arms being up towards the ceiling and I immediately pulled back because I could feel myself being pulled by some force.  I pulled back and became completely alert.  My physical arms had remained at my side while these "other" arms were being pulled up.  I did not sleep with my arms outside the covers until lately.
