Experience description:   

One evening my 7 year old daughter was in another room playing a computer game.  She was singing a new song she had learned and suddenly became very quiet.  A few minutes later she came into the room where my husband and I were watching TV.  She had tears in her eyes.  She sat next to me with a dazed look in her eyes and said, "I didn't think I would be able to get back down to you because of that invisible wall."  She was visibly shaken.  She wouldn't talk about the incident again until the next day. 

She told me that she "found" herself on a ledge high above our living room and was looking down on us as we watched TV. She said she then went higher and she had to keep her eye on the "green circle" in order to know how to get back home.  She said as she sat on the next ledge she reached out her hand and felt an invisible wall that felt like concrete.  There was a door above her and she had two keys to open it with, however like Goldilocks, one key was too big and the other too small. 

Someone asked her if she wanted to go in the door and she said, "NO!" Just then, she said, a tunnel opened up from her left side and she could see a ladder.  She knew this ladder would take her back home but she was scared to climb down.  At that point our pet dogs Sandy and a stray dog that had taken up at our house a few weeks earlier, climbed the ladder, "spoke" to her mind and told her to climb down. When I questioned her about the dogs speaking to her mind she said, "They didn't talk because they didn't have too, my mind knew what they were saying."  She then said she climbed down the ladder and woke up in front of the computer.  

The next day we were walking through the living room and she said, "There, Mama, there's the green circle I was telling you about."  She pointed to a green floral wreath on the wall.  She stated that it didn't look like flowers high up, it just looked like a green circle.  After this experience she is so loving to us, insists on reading the Bible, and "talks" to her animals all the time.
