At the age of five, my father had to slam on the brakes. I hit my head on the gear shifter of the car. The next thing I knew, I was floating about thirty feet above the car. After that, my mother was shaking me to wake up. I had a big bruise on my forehead for days afterward. I thought it was a dream until I started learning about astral projection. My question was, ‘How many five year olds know what a street and Chevrolet look like from thirty feet up?’After studying the subject of astral projection, I learned how to wake up my consciousness in a dream. After practicing dreaming this way, I would often wake up vibrating extensively. After weeks of this happening, I gave into the vibrations. I was floating across the room. It seemed as if I could see in all directions or was at least aware of what was around me. I could feel a little wind pushing me when I moved. I did not have much control in my movements. I did not do this again. I woke up in the vibration stage many times afterward. The last time I did, I prayed that it would go away. I did from that day on and never came back.
