Experience description:   

I had been challenging my physical limitations and working very hard. On my return drive to London I had to take a break and pulled of the road. Just as I was about to relax, as I took a breath I felt a tingling over all my body and the lights on the car dashboard began to move away (it was dark and the car lights were on). I was religious at the time and familiar with the spirit world and so I realized what was happening.

At each breath the tingling increased and I felt myself being drawn out of my body. Everything was in perfect vision and very clear, actually very clear. After several breaths I was now about 5m (16 feet) away from the car. This lasted about 10 seconds. With a final breath I seemed to just slip away very fast and the whole experience turned into a dream experience - I found myself in a village.
