had a very unusual experience quite a few years ago.
I'll never forget it because it's never been repeated.
I was in my twenties at the time.
was living in Italy with my girlfriend. One evening,
just before going to sleep, we read some poetry together.
I've never done that before with anyone. It's my opinion
that reading the poetry somehow helped put us into the
right "frame of mind" for the experience which
followed. We then fell asleep. Almost immediately I
woke up and felt my body (non-physical, but identical
in every other respect) lift up from my physical body
and transfer into my girlfriend's body!!
was incredible! I was sharing the same physical and
"spiritual" space as my girlfriend, and it
felt very intimate and special, as if we were one person
together. I had an exquisite awareness of my girlfriend's
personality as if it were "intermingling"
with mine! I also felt a constant humming or vibrating
sensation throughout my/our body/ies, an experience
which lasted all night. I realized that energy was flowing
into me/us. Time was also different - I didn't have
to wait for time to pass, it was simply there, totally
different from my normal everyday perception of time.
I was, in a sense, "liberated" from time.
event started around 12.30. Suddenly, at about 7.30,
I fell back into my body, and my girlfriend immediately
woke up and said, "Thank you, Michael." I
can't remember what I said, something like, "That
was really weird!" She told me later that she had
felt my "spiritual body" move into the same
space as hers. When I mentioned it had lasted all night,
she appeared surprised and replied that she had only
felt it for a while before waking up.
