When I hit the floor I was blank for a few moments, then 2 small transparent or glowing entities came into my room. At the time, I was out of body. They were very friendly and they took my hand one on one. We walked through the wall but were not touching the floor. We went above my house and I could see all around and down at my house. They talked to me for short time but don't remember what they said. Then I remembered my sister was at a Halloween party and all of a sudden, I was there; I saw everything she was doing. After that, I was under my favorite tree in a pasture: a mulberry tree.We talked again but don't remember. Then I was back above my house. I remember they told me I had to go back, but I did not want to go back. Then they told me time will go by fast and walked me back to my bed, put me back in my body and they put me in bed. I remember opening my eyes; they looked back at me and waved with a smile. The love was so intense I still have it to this day.The next day I told my sister I knew what she did at the party and I remember her being mad saying my Mother was spying on her.
