Sharon's Out-of-Body Experience
just wanted to tell you about a profound experience
I had at the age of ten. I am now a 43 year old RN,
and my outlook on life has changed ever since this experience.
extremely cold winter night in Texas I got ready for
bed and entered my bedroom. At that time we had what
was called a "space-heater" which was gas of course.
It was so cold in my bedroom that I turned up the heater
to full blast before climbing into bed.
during the night I "woke up" to find myself against
the ceiling. I was literally floating and I could see
myself from the chest up.
I remember feeling no discomfort,
such as heat or cold, just a nice peaceful feeling.
I was wondering why I was able to float against the
ceiling, I looked down and saw myself sleeping on my
back. This was strange enough, but the strangest part
was how I thought of myself on the bed. I thought of
myself in the third-person.
I remember distinctly thinking,
"She is running out of air" and "There is no oxygen
in this room." I did not think this in a state of panic,
more like a peaceful concern for the body.
next thing I knew, I was hurling toward my body. I woke
up when I slammed back into it. I jumped up, gasping
for air, and raised all the windows in my room. That
blast of cold air was great!!!
stood there for several minutes, just taking deep breaths
of air. I then turned down the heater real low and opened
the door to my bedroom.
I told my family about this
the next morning, but they just said that I was dreaming.
I knew better because it felt like no dream I had ever
had before and the fact that I couldn't hardly breathe
when I woke up in my body.
experience changed my life, because up to that point
in my life, I was very unsure of life after death. I
also was suddenly not afraid of dying either.
I did not see any other beings during this event and
never saw a tunnel.
did seem to change mentally / spiritually afterwards.
It was shortly after this experience that I became known
in my family for having visions that came true. I believe
that I "tapped in" to something that made me somewhat
clairvoyant. I also would occasionally see deceased
began to think of God as a more loving being than he
was portrayed by my Southern Baptist upbringing. I became
more open to other religious ideas, such as reincarnation
and the idea of multiple levels of heaven.
