Louise's Experience

Experience description:   

It was about 7 pm and I was taking my 2 year old son to bed, he couldn't get to sleep so I got in beside him to settle him. When he had went to sleep, I was still awake and would have normally just got up out the bed and carried on with housework etc, but the more I told myself to get up the less I felt able to move, at first it wasn't that I couldn't move, it was more like I couldn't find the will to get up, I cant really describe what happened immediately after this point. 

I cant really remember a separation.....but I could see the room I was in with my physical eyes, I could see my son, the wall and the light coming in from the open door, yet at the same time, with different eyes I could see the street I used to live in as a young girl,  I was in the air about 5 ft from the ground, I was being pulled or drawn backwards, I could feel the sensation of the cold wind on my face, almost the feeling of being beside an open car window when the vehicle is moving, I could smell cut grass, I was terrified, I was trying to move and shout with my physical body, at the same time as seeing feeling hearing and being in this other place. I had doubts at first as to whether or not this was an OBE, because from other peoples stories it sounds as if they shift awareness into a second self, and the perceive from this second self, yet I would describe my experience as a split in awareness and perception, I could see, feel and think in two selves. I don't even know if anyone could make sense of that, I had two trains of thought, and neither of them knew what was happening.
