Me and my boyfriend were extremely tired, because we had traveled all night, just for fun. Later we had a fight about serious subjects, so we went to bed very stressed.
We turned off the light, turned back one to the other and tried do fall asleep.. I think I was almost falling, and we naturally had moved one to the other. Suddenly I start feeling like floating, and I couldn't feel where my body ended and his started, I couldn't feel the contact between our skin (we were naked). His mouth was so much near mine that we were breathing the same air, lips almost touching. I felt float higher and I felt I wasn't in my room anymore. Than I felt his presence, and I found it wasn't separated from me.
I noticed it was all darker than usual. At the same time, I heard him say "it's so dark, I'm not here, what's happening? Is it because of the dark?". I felt extremely surprised because I thought I was dreaming, but I understood that I was awaken and he was feeling the same. He said "the air we're breathing, is getting heavy, and we're getting "light" (low weight)". I was thinking exactly what he was saying, and later he said that everything I said too, during that experience, was exactly what he was thinking. We were connected, we were the same, it was this what we concluded later.
We started do get frightened because he said he was going down, and I felt us separating and slowly went down into my body. We stayed in dark and silence, I was feeling so peaceful, so quiet, so happy! Then we started to talk and talked about what we had feel for hours and hours.
From that day, we have kind of a strong telepathic connection (we had some before, but not this way!). Now we believe in twin souls, in some kind of life after death and in Out of Body Experiences.
