Question: Last night i went to bed about midnight, i was so tired and was falling into a deep sleep, which is unusual for me as i have been on sleeping pills for the last 7 months! I was having some quite vivid dreams, then all of a sudden i felt my body lift off the bed, head first and i was floating above by bed. The worst thing is that i could not move or make a sound, i was frozen and there was a really strange ringing in my ear. This lasted about 10 seconds and it actually felt like i was floating above my bed. When i “landed” back onto the bed its like i woke up from something and i layed there for a while in shock. I then looked at the time and it was 12.30 so i had only been asleep for about 30 minutes.
The first thing that came to mind was that my friend had told me i had a “ghost” in my house. My friend can see people that everyday people cannot. Apparently there is a man that hangs around my property that is quite attached to the land,apparently he will bring me no harm.The second thing i thought about was the fact that i had not taken a sleeping pill last night, generally when i dont take a sleeping pill i have extremely vivid dreams and figured it could be a side effect of coming off them, after all they are a drug. The third thing is that i have been going through some extreme life changes at the moment and i have been under a lot of stress due to work and a relationship breakdown. I am wondering if this is a spiritual or scientific experience, i have never felt anything quite like it and it has freaked me out a little, but somehow i feel quite calm about it. The most strangest part was the fact that i could not move, like something had complete power over me, and the feeling of being lifted off my bed. I would be interested to hear if anyone has a similar story!Sarah.
