Tim J's Experience

Experience description:   

I was sitting on the sofa, watching Star Trek and smoking grass. Good grass. On the program Mr. Spock left his body, went over to the other ship, checked it out and came back. I was thinking that this was possible so I laid down, crossed my arms, and shut my eyes. I then concentrated on what I wanted to do.

A brief period of time passed, my "spirit" floated out of my body by way of the top of my head. It seemed to hover above my body. I could clearly see all of my surroundings ,including my body laying at rest. I thought of where I wanted to be and I was there. There was no travel time or so it seemed. No tunnels, lights or anything. When I arrived at my destination I seemed to float above everything. I could clearly see everyone, I remember their clothing and an old trunk sitting in the middle of the floor. I thought being back and at once I was there, no travel time again. I then found myself floating above my body only to realize that I didn't know how to get back into it. After almost freaking, I thought real hard about being back in my body and I shut my eyes of my spirit and I was in.  Now, I was real confused as to if this happened or my imagination was wild. I then got up and called my friend, who was at the house I visited.

She was 750 miles from me and calling me a liar. I had her to return my phone call to prove that I was where I said I was at. She about fainted when she heard my voice on the phone. She ask me how I did this and I replied that I wasn't sure. That's the thick of it. I went to our preacher and ask how was this possible? He replied that my spirit was the only protector of my body and if there were any evil spirits around they could enter my body while I was absent and when I returned that I would have to co-habit my body with them. I haven't had the balls to try it anymore!
