Roger I's Experience

Experience description:   

My mother had recently passed over and I had been in a long period of depression.

The night of my out of body trip I was quite morose and I am convinced that I stopped my heart from beating through sheer will?

I left my body, passed through a wall, knew I was somehow 'complete' even without being in a material form. I felt pulled as if metal to a magnet toward a light, and pure peace of mind, love so incredible, and a feeling that all would soon be revealed?

Then I was pulled back and the pulling back was stronger than that pulling me away?

I returned to my body in shock, my wife (then) still getting undressed was at the end of our bed.

I suggested to her that I imagined that I left my body and went through the wall of our house.

I was shocked when she said she knew, and that if she had not willed me to return I would not have done so?

She said she was totally exhausted when she saw I had returned.

I have since felt other spiritual events, that are unexplainable but speak of another dimension of which we are a totally unaware.
