of Body Experiences
In 1970 my son was about 4 years old. He had a habit of sleepwalking during the night. Our bedrooms were on the second floor and my son's bedroom was right next to the railing that led downstairs. He would usually sleepwalk early in the evening and my husband would put him over his shoulder and take him back upstairs and tuck him in. Our bedroom was just down the hallway.
One night I got up very fast and I rushed into my son's bedroom because I thought I heard him getting up and possibly going for a walk down the stairs. I was afraid he would trip and fall. I rushed into his room and I stood by his bed and I found that he was all tucked in. I wondered why I got up so fast. As I stood there, I looked down at myself and I found that all of me was a light gray mist! Even my night clothes were all gray. I was totally confused because this situation had never happened to me before. Then I thought that I had better get out to the hallway and as soon as I thought about doing that, my light gray body floated to the doorway. As I floated to the door, I could see my gray body, but I didn't seem to have any feet. As I stood there, I had a feeling that I could have gone through the wall to the right and have gone sight-seeing, or I could have made a turn to the left to go down the hallway where our bedroom was. I looked to my left and I could see my bedroom and there I was sitting up in bed with my head against the back of the bed. I was not moving at all.
At that point, I realized that my soul was not in my heavy body that was sitting up in bed. It was with me in my light gray misty body standing in the hallway. I knew my gray soul had to get back into my body, but I didn't know how I was going to do that. The next thing I did was that I floated down the hallway and I stood right next to the body that was sitting up in bed. The bottom of my night clothes and area where my feet would have been, came up and went into the top of the head of the body that was sitting up in bed. At that point, I realized that I was one person... body and soul.
After that happened, I was afraid to go to sleep for a few months because the feeling I had when I was out of my body was so nice. I had a son and a husband and a responsibility to be with them. I was afraid that it would happen again. It did happen again, but many years later. A year ago I was reading a book while lying on the living room couch. I had fallen asleep. All of a sudden my soul got out of my body. My gray misty soul stood up, turned around and looked at the person (me) sleeping on the couch. I was mad at myself for leaving my body again. I (my soul)put my hands on my hips and I said, "NOW what am I going to do!" Just as I said that, the person on the couch (me) started to stir, and my soul rushed right back into my body. Then I realized that I had another out-of-body experience.
