Sara K's Experience

Experience description:   

I was awake in bed, just lying on my  back, when I felt my body vibrate and this increased  sort of like a humming through my body , it intensified  until I felt some part of me lift up and leave my body behind.  This part of me kept  rising and went way up through the  roof  and up into  the black sky. I could see the stars and was in awe of what was happening, thinking how beautiful they looked.  I looked back over my shoulder and could make out the roof of the house with a hazy hole in the middle, I could feel the wind around me as I was accelerating towards the stars and began to feel afraid. I was enjoying the experience but  was afraid that if I didn't go back I would never get back to my body and with that I descended back quickly into my body which continued to hum for a while. I went to sleep but the next morning could remember it all very vividly and recount it to my friends who laughed. All the next day my skin was tingly like electricity was going through it and I felt really good and positive.
