This happened about ten
years ago, but I can still remember the experience quite clearly. I have told
this experience to many people, and surprisingly, my sister who at the time
slept down the hallway, has had the EXACT same experience. I don't know if it's
because we are sisters or what.
Out of nowhere during my sleep I awoke to the ceiling right in front of my face
as if the bed was so high that there was only a few inches in front of me. And,
let me tell you the whole time, I was never afraid or felt any fear. I stayed in
supine position (laying on my back) and I swooped down to the carpet hovering
only about an inch or two above it, then swayed back up to the ceiling, and
swooped back down close to the floor. Me and my sister both exclaimed how it was
actually fun! It was enjoyable because we felt so weightless yet just floating
around and swooping and swaying, all while staying on my back position. Never
did I ever have any anxiety, fear, or sadness. After some moments I remembering
thinking "I have no physical body, so how is it that I can see??" and "Ok, I am
now going to try to control where I want to go" because up to that point, I
didn't have control. So I set my mind to it. And when I wanted to move right, I
concentrated and I did. And it became easier. I remember seeing the light switch
by the door and putting my mind to float towards it, and I did. I wanted to go
past the threshold, but I could not. I could only float around my room pretty
much. Perhaps this was "the silver cord" which I read as the cord that keeps
your spirit attached to your body. That is all I can Remember. I came back to my
body and I awoke to tell my story.
