Read your OP from your link and that sounds like quite the experience!
Just wondering if you have managed to evoke that same thing again?
edit on 12-4-2013 by Timely because: left out a whole word ... dah!!
I have tried a few times since but no, I haven't managed to do it again since. I think I am too conscious of what I am trying to do, trying to force
it if you will, and it hasn't worked
That time in the shower, I remember allowing the water to run over my head and in particularly around my ears, I was listening to the different
trickling sound that it makes, and the next thing I knew, I was looking up and saw thousands of tiny sparkles jumping around in the water. I saw no
shower cubicle, no shower head, no bathroom walls, just the water sprinkling down from nowhere or nothing. And the water didn't look like water, it
looked like 'cartoon' water, and full of tiny twinkling stars. I couldn't see my body either.
I know I sound loop-de-loop, but really I'm not lol.
I marvelled at those little stars that felt like 'life'. Water is alive.
It wasn't until I heard a dull 'thud' and I was jolted back to normal 'consciousness', that I realised I had been out of my body. I felt shocked
about being back in my body, and I recall that I was just stood there with my back to the shower head, my head was bowed forward, my arms were down by
my side, like a switched off automaton. I looked around me at the walls and cubicle, it all was so cold, confining and lifeless, even my body made me
feel confined and trapped inside, compared to just seconds before.
I have had other experiences, when I had been grieving for each of my beloved dogs after they died, I would be resting quietly but not asleep, I saw
my dogs trotting towards me over a beautiful green grassy hill, tails wagging, and happy little faces. One of them came so close and nuzzled into my
neck like she used to when she was alive, I actually saw and felt her. They had come back briefly so I could see they were no longer sick and old, but
alive and well and waiting for me in the next life beyond this one. Then they were gone in an instant, and my grief disappeared in the knowledge that
they aren't gone forever, I know I will see them again
There is far more around us than this physical world. We just can't see it through these tiny little windows we call eyes.
