Mario M's Experience

Experience description:   

I was lying in my bed, in the morning. Then I stood up and walked down the corridor of my grandmother's home, it's about 9 meters long. When I came to the end of the corridor I suddenly started floating in the air. It was a wonderful feeling, but then I was sucked back to my bedroom. The speed was amazingly fast. I was back in my physical body and had a very clear and lucid consciousness.

I told it to my mother the next day, she is quite skeptical about life after death and spiritual experiences. She said that it was a silly story. I replied that if it happens once again I would go to her bedroom and strip off her blanket. About two weeks later she approached me and ask me: Did you have again that experience? No, I said, not that I remember. Then, she told me that night she was lying awake in her bed and suddenly her blanket was striped from her.
