Michelle B's Experience

Experience description:   

It was sometime after midnight, I couldn't sleep so I began to tense up my toes, holding them tense for 10 seconds then releasing them. I did this to every muscle in my body while repeating in my brain, "You can imprison my body but not my soul." When I reached my head I was forcing out confinement and replacing it with freedom.

Then I began to sink, through my mattress into the dirt slowly. I could feel the coolness of the dirt, I could even smell it. I said to myself, "no I am not going there." I then began to raise very quickly until I got so high that it was hard to breath. I then told myself, "lower like an airplane," I was traveling about the height of an airplane. I could see the squares where there was farming being done, then I reached the water, (I assume the ocean) where I could see the white waves. I remember feeling the moistness as I went through clouds. I was over land again only it was almost dessert like and then suddenly I was on the ground. In the distance I could see a lot of smoke and what looked like burning oil refineries. I was by what looked like a military convoy. There were many open truck type vehicles, (Hummer's as I know them now). There were US military men and foreign military men that were leading the US troops in. I Was trying to talk to them and became frustrated that they could not see me. I then went into a camouflage dessert colored underground room. There was a map and lanterns on the table and about 5-7 high ranked officers. They were pointing out towns on a map, saying things like, "neutral area, escorts, and how many trucks were going in, should not be hostile area was evacuated." I tried talking to them as well but again I was ignored. I was then on a truck going with the soldiers there were large mounted guns, an each truck had 8-10 men on it. We were following a native military vehicle. The town was surrounded by a wall and as we entered there was arguing between the native military with another military man different from him. All men began to exit the trucks with guns ready and I did not same but just sort of stood there. Bullets began whizzing past me. I could feel the breeze of them as they passed me. I saw what looked like a church to me, no steeple, and entered it. There were checker colored table cloths and the part of the room I saw held about 8 of these tables. I began walking up to the front then a blond, blue eyed man wearing white pulled me down behind a turned over table. He said "Get down before they see you!" I responded with shock that he could see me and asked him how he could see me. I rambled on about how I have been trying to talk to everyone but no one could me. He looked up so I looked up and that was when I saw the unnatural light. He had told me, "of course I can see you!" Once again looking up, he held my arm tightly and told me that I needed to get back before they saw me. I literally landed on my bunk. I turned my head to see a Mexican girl standing there saying "you were not there, you were making noise, I kicked your bed, you were not there!" The next morning on CNN they had said that the war had started. I turned and looked at the girl who was standing next to my bunk when I landed and while pointing at the TV I said "I was there!" This all occurred when it was dark in California, but either dusk or dawn where I was.
