Experience description:   

The first time this happened was in approx 1996 sorry I don't have an exact date. I felt myself rise out of my body and walk into my girls room and I covered them up and went back to bed. I wrote it off to a very vivid dream. I do have some very intense dreams and they're usually very real.

Anyway, on May 7,2003 I went to sleep at my normal time and suddenly I felt myself rise. I rotated slowly. I was in my room and I was dressed in all white, rotating in a very slow circular motion at the ceiling. I know because I could touch it. There was someone else there dressed the same as I only I could not see there face. The feeling was calm but anxious to get to my daughter. I had the feeling that the only way to get myself out of this state was to ground myself by holding her hand and praying. And this brought me out of it.

The reason I am confident this is an obe is because during this process I have all feelings, all sensations just like normal. It's only scary for me because I don't understand it. It actually feels very awesome, almost like I am a perfect soul .
