Experience description:   

I was conscious, and in bed with my hand behind my pillow and head.  I went to move my hand and felt it move through the pillow.  I turned over and found myself floating in the air above the floor.  My dog sleeps on the floor on a dog bed  next to my bed and I clearly saw her.  There was a blue light surrounding me and illuminating the room.  I consciously associated the event with an OBE and attempted to maintain it, but found myself drawn back to the physical where I became immediately awake(?).  There seemed to be no real change in conscious state throughout the experience or my awakening in this reality.
