This story is one I have told on a paranormal website and I got some really good insight on the paranormal aspect of it, but I am looking for some insight to the out of body expieriance as well.
I am a 31 year old female. When I was 16 years old, I was at my best friend's house whom I almost lived with. I was always over at her house. We regularly hung out in the garage that we turned into a little hang out area. We had music and a table for playing cards at. Her house was an older house. It always put off the creep vibe but I had never had a paranormal experience so it definitely was not something that was on my mind.
To separate the area of the garage that we hung out in from the rest of the garage we put a curtain up as a make shift door.
One night we were making food hanging out in the garage like normal. My friend was in the kitchen. I was coming from the kitchen back to the garage that no one was in. Right as I entered and pulled the curtain back, I see a little boy sitting on the ground. I knew right away it was a ghost. I closed the curtain fast and then out of nowhere I was out of my body going through the curtain. I still very clearly remember going through the curtain and it being magnified in my sight as if I could see every strand of fabric up close. In an instant, I was through the curtain and the boy was still there. I was floating towards him outside my body and I had no control over it.
I could see the boy very clearly at this point. He had bright red hair that was curly and a blue and white stripped shirt with a collar. He was see through. I could see him and the garage door behind him through his body. He was sitting cross legged staring at the CD player we had that was playing Bob Marley, stir it up.
I got closer to him and my spirt did a 360 around the boy. I stopped right in front of him and was inches away from his face. I remember being so close I could see his freckles and he had blue eyes. He was not scary at all. He was smiling and he could see me too. I heard a voice or thought in my head that was not my own thought. It said "are you scared of me?" I quickly felt a rush and entered my own body again that was still behind the curtain.
This all took probably 10 seconds but it felt like an hour. Before this incident, I was very closed minded to the world. I now feel like my spirit and my body are two different things. I feel very connected to the afterlife and spirit. This has been the most spiritual experience and it has changed the way I live my life. I have had a ton of other paranormal experiences but none that I came out of my body for again. When I look up this type of experience, I expected to find a ton of info on it but I can't find much about OBE while awake. None with a ghost in the mix. Maybe I am looking in the wrong place. Any advise is much appreciated. Thanks for reading.
