Mary A's Experience

Experience description:   

I was having my second baby at age 20 in Santa Monica Hospital. I don't know if I had ever heard of out of body experiences then. While in labor, I went up to the ceiling. I didn't make myself go, I just went up. I looked all around the room and I was up by the lights in the ceiling. Across the room I noticed a big mirror that I had n't seen while lying down.  I wondered why they don't bring it to me so I can see the baby being born. When I was up there I wasn't worried how I got up there, and not worried how I was going to get back. Years later I was reading a book and they mentioned out of body experiences and how you never worry how you got there and never worry how you get back. I am not very religious, I don't belong to a church. But because of that one time. I do believe we have a spirit that can leave the body..and that makes me very happy. The little baby boy I had that day, passed away a few days ago. My heart is broken he was 45. I know we have a spirit and that is helping me right now. I found you tonight and wanted to share this with you.
