I have never had this happen to me, so I am a little confused. I have a hard time sleeping at night and so I was in and out of sleep all night, I would say waking every 20 minutes or so. When I found myself falling off the bed and never landing on the floor instead I was levitating about 5 inches from the ground still laying on my side and unable to open my eyes or move my body, but realized I was floating. Finally, I was able to move and open my eyes, still feeling confused about what happen, I slipped back in bed, feeling like I had never gone to sleep, I am just laying in bed thinking about what had just happened. Did I dream that or did I really levitate? It felt so real and strange.
The next day I told my husband what had happened and he said I probably had my first out of body experience, but was confused and didn't understand so crawled back up in bed. I still am curious because we have a lot of strange things happen around our home like lights turning on and off by them self and other stuff. Anyone with some idea what my of happened to me I would love to hear it.
