A description of the experience
Out of the Body Experiences – Celia Green
- My thoughts dwelt on the delights of the new found freedom, the ability to float anywhere I wished without effort
- My mind felt so free it was ecstasy and I told myself I could now go anywhere I wished
- I felt so light I was afraid of rising further still, like a balloon, without having any control.
- I felt mentally free as if I could go anywhere... now I can go everywhere I wish'
- The whole episode lasted perhaps four or five seconds before normal physical sensations returned and I felt the pressure of my weight on the bed.
- Reality was my floating self and the objects below seemed as shadows against the reality of my floating self.
- I felt as I do when I'm concentrating - intelligent
- A disembodied but very acute consciousness
I have never been so wide awake or experienced such a wonderful sense of freedom before
I experienced much delight at the weightlessness and freedom of the 'spiritual body' in which I found my consciousness located
The sensation of leaving my body is a very pleasant one, it is a wonderful feeling of lightness
Then I suddenly felt filled with the utmost joy and happiness, I felt such great freedom, like a bird just being let out of a cage for the first time in its life
The escaped me felt absolutely wonderful, very light and full of the most wonderful vitality, in fact more well than I have ever felt before or since
During this experience I felt very well, very strong and very efficient
Both occasions were so happy, ecstatic almost, that I have never stopped wishing that I could repeat them, or similar experiences... there was a quality of extreme joy
The whole experience was absolutely wonderful, and I wish I could experience a similar one again
I was distressed at the separation I felt very acutely aware of the lack of weight and solidity in myself, at the same time, I could still feel the solidity and weight of myself in the dentist's chair, even though I were not in my body
