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?
