experience began during a failed nap. I was unable to sleep so I began to
meditate. I felt normal sensations
of deep relaxation. Heaviness,
weightlessness and movies on a screen.
I then found my point of view from above a rural area I have seen before.
I was then traveling straight up very quickly into the sky. Not flying,
it was linear so more like a rocket.
I realized how high I was and got scared.
I felt my hands on a steering wheel which I perceived as a message that I
was in control. So I decided to let
the momentum take me and decided to trust and let go.
I saw the trees get smaller, then I knew I was in space because I saw the
earth, then I saw our solar system, the speed increased to a point where there
was no speed. I was in a new place
so far away in locale from Earth that none of our published research has
disclosed. I then felt I had arrived
at my destination. It was bright, then a loud buzz or high frequency sound and
tingling throughout my entire body and then my eyes opened and I was in my bed.
I never felt that I came back, and felt that I brought something back
with me from that place. I wondered
if the few physical ailments that I had would be gone.
I went immediately to the bathroom mirror to see if I looked that same.
I really expected to look different.
This occurred less than 24 hours ago, so I do not know if any of my psychic
abilities or healing abilities are enhanced yet.
