Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

William Buhlman – The Secret of the Soul

Vivienne M, Montreal, Canada

I have had many out-of-body experiences. They started in my teens and continued until about one year ago.  I am now twenty nine. I do not fear these experiences – in fact, I look forward to them. The experiences were never induced. However, once the initial signs were there, I could control it and make things happen.

I would lie in bed, and when I was half asleep I could still hear around me. I would hear a buzzing noise – this is the only way I can describe it. Then it felt like an electrical line with electricity running up and down my body.  I could feel myself lifting out, then I could do spins and twirls.  I could also see through my closed eyes. I knew that if I opened my eyes, I would snap back. I never knew when it was going to happen, but once I heard the buzzing or felt the electrical sensations, I could control it from there.  Sometimes it also felt like something was touching me – which was scary at first, but then kind of nice
