Experience description:   

I woke up in the middle of the night at @2:30am. I was wide awake with my two dogs nestled - one on each side of me. I began to think about my life and what changes I need to make to be happier and make my husband happier. I made a list of five things to focus on. Then I was lying on my back completely still and I knew something was going to happen. I thought, OK you want to show me something.

At that moment, the room blurred and I began floating upwards toward the ceiling. I was slowly spinning around and looking for what they wanted me to see. It was dark and saw something like a white spark and then something like an old majestic fabric gold with gold thread. Then I saw a black cloaked figure. As I continued to spin, I came around again and it was still there. It revealed its skeleton face which seemed to change from one face to a different face. I felt uneasy and as I spun away I said Praise the Lord three times and thought put me back. I was then back and to my surprise had not even moved. The dogs were nestled in the same spots. I looked at the clock 5:13am. I fell back asleep at @7am. The next morning I still could not figure what it all meant except May 13th is my father's birthday.
