Experience description:   

I fell asleep on a couch at my friends boyfriends house. I'm not sure how long I was asleep before I felt myself floating up to the ceiling. I remember looking down and seeing myself asleep on one couch and my friend and her boyfriend asleep on the other couch. I felt my body going to sleep (like when your foot or hand goes to sleep and it tingles) and then I can feel myself floating up higher and I always try to push myself back down when I get to the ceiling because I GET SCARED.
