We’d arrived with all of my new friends. It was a Saturday. They continued talking, but I was tired so I fell asleep. At one point, I woke up and I went to the bathroom. I washed my hands with cold water. The weather was abnormally hot. It was really warm. I looked into my eyes like never before in the mirror. I had a strong vertigo and I couldn't see any more. I remember I got out of the bathroom feeling sick and unable to see. When I have arrived into the room, crushed by all the walls surrounding me, I fell down. Slowly, like a feather, and I put my hands down to prevent the fall. Then I just remember that I saw myself from somewhere up above. Then I went, I went with an enormous speed heading to a white shining light on a channel. I remember I could see where I was going. I could see the end of that tunnel, brightly sparkling. When I got there it was extremely white and I remember seeing somebody but I do not know who it was, an old person, I'm sure of that. And we had a long chat. After that, I remember coming back with even greater speed than before, and I could see myself down below waiting for me. Then I opened my eyes and I couldn't speak. I was incredibly happy. I felt extremely pure with an incredible euphoric state. My friends didn't know what happened they we're astonished as I was.
The second time, it happened after this experience, I was sitting, relaxing in my bed, just thinking and suddenly I could feel my body moving up. I got scared, I knew I would have another experience and the body came back in a matter of seconds, before it got too far.
