Five years old standing in the school playground, then I was above and behind myself and above the tennis shed. I was amazed that I could see myself and realized where I was - then I was back again as normal. I told no one.
Next time I was 13 years old, sitting on my bed doing my homework. then I was up in the corner of the room above myself and behind myself as before. This time I was a little frightened and returned immediately to myself. I then carried on with my homework.
