Lolita C's Experience

Experience description:   

I remember being near the ceiling and looking down upon myself and my sisters in our beds.  I then floated into the hallway and into the kitchen (still near the ceiling).  I looked outside the kitchen window, then found myself outside the house near the porch light, looking over the driveway pavement, the next door neighbor's house and the street.  It was about 2 a.m. in the morning.  Everything was still, it was dark outside and no people were moving about.  I remember being disappointed that there were no people out, because I knew I could not be seen and wanted the thrill of moving about them and having them not know it.  I looked back near the garage of the house; it was still dark and I thought I would at least see a cat or a dog (I didn't).  I then became bored with being outside.  I found myself back in the hallway of our house; I thought about my parents and looked towards the door of their bedroom and could see through the door.  They were sleeping.  I quickly turned my eyes away because I knew I shouldn't be looking into my parents bedroom.  I stayed at the ceiling in the hallway for a bit, looking at the light of the moon coming in from the bathroom window into the hallway.  I then floated back into my bedroom.  I woke up the next morning and told my mother I had been flying last night.  She became very upset with me, possibly because she had just lost her mother.  I over heard her telling someone that she had seen her mother at the foot of her bed.  She told me not to tell anyone that I had been 'flying'.  I remember that I felt happy while I was flying.  I seem to remember that I was smiling all the while.  After that night, I would tell myself at bedtime, "I'm going to fly tonight".  I did once after that, but it was confined to my bedroom and did not last as long as the first time.
