Pierre V's Experience

Experience description:   

The first time happened at school I was 14 at that time.

I felt asleep on my desk then next thing I know I'm sort of walking (Floating) around the ice ring and my friend who suppose to be sick is playing hockey with another player.

As I think that I'm walking, I look on the sidewalk and see that it is covered with thick ice and realize that the sidewalk is slightly in angle. The first thing that comes to my mind is ...why is it so easy for me to stay up on this slippery sidewalk?  But never mind, I was just interested to see my friend closer on the ring.  Next thing I know, I'm on the side of the ring moving at the speed of a regular walk and just observing.  Then I wanted to be at the other end of the ring.  Next thing I know, I'm there observing the clothes they were both wearing - the gloves, the skates.  Then I realize I wasn't hearing anything until I started to focus on the skates to hear the sound it makes when it hit the ice and then the sound of the puck when it hit the board.

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No      


Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Yes     I just couldn't explain at all the first time I was only 14 and not much was known about experience out of the body......I told my friend (Luc) at school , that I saw him playing hockey yesterday afternoon with another guy and that's why he wasn't in school..... at first he told me that he was sick.  Then I said, "well I saw you with the other guy at the ring just across the street from where you live."  I told him exactly what he was wearing, the color of his jacket and his gloves and color of his hat on the head.  I also told him the same thing for the other guy....so he told me that's true but to know that he said you were not at school...I said I was but I cannot explain how I know that I saw you playing hockey that day....Until the school ended that year my friend ask me every week how I knew about that day he was playing hockey.  I had no answer for him, until 12 years later.....
