Monica B's Experience
That day I had a pain in my knee, so when I went to bed I decided to do Reiki on my knee. I was in a fetal position and I do not know how long I was doing the Reiki. It seemed to me that I was awake the whole time, but I think I was in that middle state, between awake and sleep.
Suddenly my body started feeling like a liquid Jell-O and I felt like some kind of force was pulling me out through my back. I remember that I was fighting that for a long time, but it just kept getting stronger, and the Jell-O feeling was getting stronger also. Suddenly, I felt like I was falling to the floor. In that moment my first impression was that I really fell down, meaning with my body. So, thinking my body fell, I went to get up, but to my surprise I saw my body laying in bed. I was not scared at all, and I remember thinking OH! I am out of my body how cool!! I then saw my brother sleeping in his bed in a fetal position. I could not see darkness or light. It is like that concept does not exist in that state. Because I knew that I was out of my body I wanted to go and do things. I then walked towards the wall and thought about the possibility of walking through it. So, to see if this was possible, I reached my arms through it, and it worked! I thought it was really cool and it felt like I reached through a wall of water. Then I put my head through a part that had a closet on the other side, and I saw the things inside it.
I then walked towards the door and I wondered if it was possible to touch the door and open it. I think now that I had to focus then on that idea and doing so, it worked... I opened it. Then I walk towards my parent's room and I saw them sleeping, but suddenly I saw my mom sit up and she told me that I should not be doing that. In that moment I went immediately back to my body, opened my eyes and noticed my heart was beating like crazy.
I was so surprised by
the experience that I had to see if my brother was in the position that I saw
him in, and he was! Then I knew that I was truly out of my body.
