FIRST Experience description:   

This is the first of three strange experiences.  I have also had many other experiences of having my life saved by being pushed or pulled or warned of dangers. 

As a young teenager, I was just lying on my bed staring at a point on the wall.  It seemed to get further and further away.  I felt like I was floating in the room.  I wondered what my mother was doing cooking in the other room.  I drifted toward a wall and went through it like Patrick Swayze in the movie Ghost, i.e., I could see things inside the wall, there was a sort of sucking sound.  When I got through I saw my mother cooking at the stove.  She turned and looked up at the ceiling, me.  She ran from the kitchen to my bedroom as I seemed pulled back through the wall.  She again looked up at the ceiling and down toward me as I reentered  my body.  She looked worried and told me not to do that again.

Second Experience

This is the second of three similar experiences.  In this one, I had brought my girlfriend home from college for the Christmas holidays to her parent's home in the mountains.  It was snowing heavily.  After dinner, it appeared that I would not be able to get home due to the heavy snowfall.  So, her father said I could stay the night but since there were only two bedrooms, I would have to sleep on the couch.  I asked if they had a sleeping bag and said I would like to sleep on the floor in front of the fireplace.  The parents and my girlfriend and her sister went to bed.  I unrolled the sleeping bag and as I did so and was crawling in, I soaked in the beauty of the fireplace and the big white snowflakes floating down outside the picture window. 

I thought I wish my girlfriend was out here with me.  I heard a voice say "why don't you go and ask her?"   I said, "why don't you, they can't see you."  As I got more and more relaxed, I noticed or felt there was a light on in the hallway and some talking.  I disregarded it thinking it was just someone going into the bathroom or something minor.  Then, I heard the father say something, like "I'm not afraid of him.  I am going to tell him to go home.  I felt a whoosh of a yellow light into my head.  A few seconds later, the father pretended he was looking for his boots and grabbed my head.  I said that was me.  He said to go home.  I said I can't because of the snow.  He said to stay out here.  I said I would be right here.

The next day at breakfast, I got some strange looks from anger or disgust from her parents, to a look of awe from my girlfriend's little sister.

Later, after I got my girlfriend's jeep started by rolling it down a hill and popping the clutch, she said, "how did you do that?"  I started to explain what I just did.  But she interrupted and said, "no, I meant last night."  I said I thought I knew what she was talking about, but what did she see?  She said I was a yellow light.  I asked if I hurt anyone.  She said no, just scared her parents.  I asked what I did.  She said, first I went to her parents room and then came to the door of her room. I asked if her sister saw me too.  She said yes, they both sat up in bed.  I asked what happened next.  She said, I beckoned her to come with me with my hand.  And then, she said her father got up, and my light went back down the hall.
