Several years ago, when my wife and I lived in an outer suburb of Sydney following a pretty normal mid-week day of activity, work, home, dinner, TV, etc. It was in the early hours of the proceeding morning, that I'd experienced an account, that was unique on its own in comparison to other accounts I'd experienced, nor ever read or heard of anywhere else for a matter of speaking.
I was turned on my left shoulder, left side of the bed, with my eyes facing the wall, when I then decided to roll around to lay on my right-side shoulder facing my wife, who was on the other side of the bed, face down, laying on her stomach. As I started to roll over to my wife's side, I suddenly turned to see her floating out of her body, perhaps by inches, and not much more than one foot, to the best of my recollection. My wife, in "duality"... Was turned on her side, facing me, perhaps separated by around the same distance as her other self lying face and stomach down on our bed.
So basically, both of us eyeballed each other, albeit my wife was a little higher off the bed, staring into my eyes with a focus and look that had some real intent. I can't put my finger on exactly what she may have been thinking (or doing) and still can't say for sure. However, sometime later on the following day, I did put forward an explanation that perhaps now makes sense to both my wife and me after a recent conversation.
I have had some interesting accounts throughout my life; however, I must admit, this one did startle me to some degree with a fleeting thought she may have been in trouble or experiencing an NDE?... The one observation for the memory bank was the thickness of my wife's hair. It was as thick as it was in her youth, with her facial features younger than she is now, perhaps around 35 to 40. Although not fully physical in her appearance, it was translucent enough to see the color of her skin hair eyes, etc, more semi-physical if you can imagine what I was seeing. I can't remember if I noticed her lower attire, it was dark with some moonlight protruding through the curtains.
The other observation was the position of my wife's actual body she was lying face down on the bed. My wife had a long-time habit from childhood, preferring to sleep on her stomach with her face down.
With the wisdom of hindsight, I wish I could have reacted quickly enough actually to attempt to talk to my wife, or at the very least, hold my position for as long as I was able to however, I'd rolled over on my back reasonably quick enough, reached over with my right hand and gave her a few light taps on her back and said: " What are you doing?" (sub-tone for) "hey, get back in your body!" It would have been ideal to further validate the experience if possible, rather than rule it out as my imagination from a skeptical point of view, and that's as much detail as I can offer, about what I'd experienced. Was it my imagination? Or did I witness my wife's light body, ghost, higher self, soul, or eternal spirit? Only if my wife from here had some recollection, was I going to be satisfied it was a real paranormal account.
So after the few light taps on her back, my wife didn't wake up completely, or if it was at all from memory? However, I did feel satisfied she was ok, although she may have turned on her side, I can't quite remember all the detail at this stage of my account.
Moving forward a few hours. My wife got up for a bathroom visit when she came back to bed, I was more than eager to see what she'd remembered, as surely this would be the holy grail of an Out of Body experience if we both could validate what had just happened. Unfortunately, my wife did not remember it the way I did; however, you may find this interesting, as to what she remembered. I started the conversation by asking: Did anything strange happen last night? My wife: yes, I felt myself floating off the bed and then heard a muffled voice say (something) I have forgotten what she said although it was not the same words as mine that I have remembered, I guess from a deep sleeping state, it may make sense not to remember my exact words.
I'm also not surprised she can't remember looking at me in an OBE state of mind, as I have pretty much concluded, we exist outside our bodies (in duality) and use the flesh as an avatar here in this reality containing its sub-conscious (ego, personality, etc)... However, the fact she remembered the sensation of floating and hearing a voice around the same time led to me believing, it was associated with my account. Just recently, I asked my wife if she sleeps face down on our bed because I haven't noticed it for years and the answer was no, not ever again after this particular account happened which I find interesting, when usually old habits are hard to quit without some serious concentration!
