Kim R's Experience
firstly I can recall many out of body experiences, starting in child hood and then they became more prominent in adulthood, from around the age of eight I can only describe going to sleep then suddenly my conscious state felt it was moving into a higher self I would sense I was drifting into a dark tunnel the tunnel was very long and it was a very wonderful feeling I noticed at the end of the tunnel their was a light, I would drift into this light I then noticed I was flying around like a bird I felt I could fly anywhere it was pure white I felt like a spirit with no physical body, it felt like I was flying in the sky amongst clouds, I had quite a lot of those experiences as a child. they started again in my thirties, but they were more intense, on some occasion I can describe drifting through the same dark tunnel, on one occasion I can only describe that I was asleep then suddenly I sensed I was going to have one which I can always sense when I am going to have an out of body experience, suddenly I felt my conscious self starting to come out firstly from my feet then through the top of my head I was floating in the air above myself I can see all around me it was great, I was floating everywhere in my home I was drifting through the walls, doors, I actually saw my cat, I felt I could go into the next door neighbors home if I wanted to, I would then drift out of the window into and find myself in the street, I literally saw everything houses, street lights, it was dark because it was night, I felt I could go anywhere on the earth plane, I did not go to any other sphere or anywhere weird, or I didn't see any other spirits like myself, I was just on earth level, I would suddenly want to go back to my body, I would suddenly feel my self drift back into my body, but feel a bit confused on first waking up, but then feel like a renewed sense of myself. more spiritually aware and more aware of things around me, it made me feel more alive and spiritual.
