1986/87 - Northern Virginia
I had met a young woman at work. It was an accidental contact, really not more than a glance. Perhaps it was the soulmate thing that attracts so much interest. It was instant mutual attraction, if not love itself. Looking back, I loved her then and love her still.
We quickly became lovers. It was a consuming, all encompassing shared experience that became overwhelming. For me, it was as though the sun was rising when she entered a room. That description is more literal than figurative. She seemed to bring light with her and the room would brighten as she passed through the doorway.
We shared an active sex life that was delightful and mutually fulfilling. We were completely satisfied with each other. I learned the remarkable difference between sex and sex with someone you love. I did not know how significant this was to become. More than 30 years later I am still troubled by one experience I cannot forget.
We had enjoyed making love one afternoon and when finished lay in bed, still physically connected. I was lost in a world of my own, filed with love for this woman. There seemed to be no thoughts in my mind. I was not thinking I loved her, it was more the emotional act of radiating love for her. I was simply filled with love for her and actively in the process of loving her. There was nothing else in existence for me at that moment in time.
I felt a draw, a magnetic pull or attraction upon my spirit, my very being. That pull was quite noticeable and lasted 3 or 4 seconds, then stopped. In 5 or 10 seconds it began again. Then there was a gentle pop and I was out of my body and into hers. It was like shooting a strong rubber band off my thumb when I was a child, though with the least possible tension, the rubber band traveling only a few inches.
I was utterly shocked by this out of body experience and momentarily bewildered. I saw nothing and believe we both had our eyes closed. The difference in our bodies was amazing to me. It was not the difference in genital arrangement or the fullness of breasts that struck me, but the frail nature of her upper body and the length of her legs. I realized immediately the difference in upper body strength and was quite taken aback by what I felt.
At that point I sought to explore and began to feel about, to test the differences. As I began to do this I felt another draw. This was different. I felt the tension increase over 4 or 5 seconds without letting up. Then there was a pop, almost audible, and much more pronounced. I was back in my own body. The full experience taking perhaps a minute, possibly less.
This rather slender 22 year old young woman lifted me off of her and threw me to her right, near to the edge of the bed. She rolled over and spoke urgently into my ear through gritted teeth, and said "What was that?" She was frightened and agitated. She calmed, then asked "How did you do that?" She clearly knew I had been in her body with her.
I have often thought back over the years, and compared this experience to 2 smokers exhaling smoke through their own straws into a shared bottle. Perhaps our spirits or souls blended as smoke in a bottle would have. Now I wonder, were we just 2 spirits in a shared human container? I do not know the answer to my own question.
I want to know how this happened. It is as though time stopped and I cannot get beyond this experience.
I have had out of body experiences in the past. They always happened at bedtime and were involuntary. I have been out of body in lucid dreams, once witnessing an attempted murder that was later confirmed by police.
My hope is to learn how I entered another persons body. Can you help?
I was completely unaware that an out of body experience could include entering another person's living body. This reality was, to me, a complete unknown. I could not, and did not, conceive that such a thing was even remotely possible. I had read of demonic possession in the Bible and knew Hollywood had made horror films on the subject. I understood demonic possession to be reality. That one human spirit could depart their own body, and enter and occupy the body of another human being, was something that I had never considered. That notion was, simply, unthinkable. When this experience happened to me it was totally unexpected. I had involuntarily entered the world of a new reality.
The magnetic-like attraction that pulled twice to remove my spirit from my body is a complete unknown to me. Our love for each other was beyond words and mutual. Perhaps it was she who drew me into her body. It was not my intent to project myself out of body. I certainly was not trying to do so. That I experienced a spiritual trans-physical migration remains beyond words. It came as a complete surprise. When it first took place I was briefly disoriented. I was in a new body in the dark.
To inhabit another body is to undergo major change. Imagine the body builder thrust into the body of a ballerina, or vice-versa. You are still you in every sense and manner, but your new container is quite different. I had typical male upper body strength, though not a weightlifter. I was shocked at the difference in female upper body construction, and instantly understood why women the world over share the burden of carrying physical loads. My lady was very leggy, I am not. That difference was also immediately apparent.
When I returned to my body, the young lady was quick to react. With a surge of adrenaline she lifted me and tossed me to her right, as though I was a child. She was bewildered and defensive at having been so personally invaded. Because she behaved this way, I believe she did not initiate what happened. She asked "How did you do that?" I had done nothing and was as bewildered as she was. There had not been a thought in my head. I simply was filled with love. I literally was doing nothing but feeling, perhaps even radiating, love for her.
It has been more than 30 years since she and I shared this experience. Of all the experiences in my physical life, this was foremost. Only a near death experience was greater.
For me, the world stopped. Life went on for decades. I participated in it and experienced many chapters, but it was incidental and without full meaning or value. I have never been able to get completely beyond this brief, but live changing event. Two souls in one body shared what may be the ultimate intimacy. I do not expect to ever have closure or resolution.
Even greater than the intimacy, is the troubling knowledge that humanity is wrong. Humans generally know what is possible and what is not. We know what is normal, natural, and credible. To claim that one person can travel to and enter the body of another is unreasonable, irrational and unbelievable. To be thought a liar, or imbalanced and committable seems perfectly reasonable.
Mankind is wrong. Spirit/soul travel is absolutely possible. The truth and reality I had been taught was wrong. The impossible and inconceivable is, in fact, not only possible, but for me, my new truth and reality. And I cannot help but wonder, where else is mankind so mistaken and so wrong in its beliefs?
Please note and understand, I do not regard myself as special, talented or gifted because I experienced this example of out of body travel. The only thing that makes me different is that I am willing to speak about it. I think it would be wrong not to share this new reality with those that have an interest in such things.
