Experience description:   

i was lying face down on my bed the other morning. I was awake and i was getting ready to move to my office in the next room where i work. i was just moments away from getting up to make coffee like every morning. next thing i knew i was in the office room next to my bedroom and i was levitating. (keep in mind i was levitating but not with my body.) i wondered at being free my physical self. i saw what i could only describe as my own life force. no , i saw myself from the standpoint or perspective of my own life source. my soul as i call it. i was my soul looking at myself. it's so surreal, so abstract it is hard to find the words. i knew i was one person. one complete being , yet i was looking at my human self from the state of pure energy. i was free of the body. i began a monologue within myself but have no memory of what was said. all i remember is the incredible liberation of existing in a state of pure energy. everything was incredibly lucid.
