around age nine or ten I recall vividly experiencing
OBE's. At the time I did not know what they were but
I knew how to will myself to have one. I looked forward
to going to bed at night, for that is when I would will
an OBE. It would be that moment just before sleep, and
I could consciously feel my spirit move away from my
body and I would be in another room somewhere. I would
"float" around and go where I needed to go, but I always
knew somehow that my spirit needed to rejoin my body
(it was as if this was kept in the forefront of my consciousness).
When I did return, I knew the exact moment and would
experience a sense of relief that I had returned. Immediately
after this I would slip into a peaceful sleep, but a
sleep that would have dreams that were very vivid.
dreams around this time would be of me running with
my arms outwards and then floating off into the air.
I would always be in a clearing in a forest somewhere.
(I live on a small island and there is no forest here).
A friend would be with me. I miss these dreams and OBE's.
Somehow I cannot have them any more.
