Your True Tales
September 2006 - Page 25
When my children were young, I was very tired when I went to bed. I had heard of "out-of-body" traveling, and thought I would try it. I had always had the "feeling" that I held myself back from falling when I'd go to sleep. I thought I would try letting myself fall back and it seemed to work... I traveled to the bedrooms to see if my children were sleeping ok. As I was returning, my three-year old ran into my room and jumped on top of me and said, "Mama, the wind's gonna blow you away!"
I didn't try it again until my father died several years later. I was on vacation in a distant state when I heard the news. I went to lie down and let myself fall back (in my mind) to see if I could communicate with him. I found myself in a dark tunnel. (I had not heard of this phenomenon at that time.) A dark figure loomed in front of me, preventing me from going farther, and I heard my father's voice. What was surprising to me was that he was rather gruff and told me not to try anything like this again. (He was a mild-mannered person in life.) It was something I would not have predicted to be his response, so I was sure that I had not simply imagined it. The concern in his voice was something I had not heard before. I have not tried anything like this again.
Do you have a paranormal tale to tell?
