Experience description:   

My experiences start with buzzing in my head, which is like a moderate electric shock. At first this is intermittent then becomes constant at which point I leave my body. I usually hover around a while. The first experiences took me by surprise and shocked me back into my body. I then began to feel intense peace when they happened and began to control my movements. I can make a conscious decision to go through walls or floors or down the street. Outside seems darker and very quiet and peaceful as is the whole experience. Something stops me from visiting friends or relatives houses. When I return to my body I follow the same route in reverse. I sometimes get annoyed and frustrated if its a short experience and I always want more.
