would like to share my one and only OBE. It happened
to me in late 1990. I was at home and watching some
TV after dinner. I usually go to bed at about 11 pm;
however that night I was a bit tired and turned in earlier
at about 9:30 pm.
seemed to fall asleep almost immediately. In what felt
like just a few minutes I was awakened from my sleep
and got up. I felt a bit disoriented but very much awake
and aware. I looked back at my bed and noticed that
my body was lying in my bed still asleep. My view was
not at ground level; I was floating near the ceiling,
about six or seven feet up.
feeling was one of peace and happiness. It was a feeling
that I am still unable to completely describe. I realized
that no matter what, everything was going to happen
as it should. As I was basking in this feeling, I became
aware that everything was unfolding as it should in
the universe, that there was nothing to worry about
and all would be well. This peace and serenity still
gives me strength today.
though I was raised in a religious home, I was never
keen on religion but always interested in things spiritual.
This was a strong message to me that our own spiritual
journey is really part of living out our lives. This
helped me to realize that spiritual freedom could be
achieved through freedom from religion.
was no doubt in my mind that this event actually occurred
and was not a dream.
