Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
I remember saying to myself, all right, take me, I can’t go on any longer – here I am. I spent some time out of my body and then felt I had a choice of whether to go back or not. I chose to go back. For several weeks the same thing occurred, but I controlled the experiences. At the onset of pain I relaxed and floated out until it was safe to return and the pain was gone. I was able to roam about the house, check my baby was sleeping, look at the cat and dog, see my husband asleep. I could see my body sitting there waiting for me to return to it.
I have always felt that if I needed to I could do it again – but only if I needed to – and consequently have never been afraid of suffering acute pain. I have always felt guilty about not sharing these experiences as I feel if the techniques could be taught they could help people who suffer pain.
