After several weeks of tachycardia events that have ramped down in severity and one ER visit about 3 weeks prior to this OOB/NDE:
I felt too tired to stay awake, so I took a nap around 3:10, falling into an extra deep sleep at some point after 4:00 when I could no longer hear the low volume of the new program starting on TV.
I became lucid and aware and, after raising my arms to test the experience, I peeled out of my body. It felt like pulling myself out of a very thick, knitted sweater. I walked right up out of the recliner, hopped & flew around the room to prove to myself I was out, thinking how amazing it was.
At some point I kind of panicked and yelled for John to help me, and then he was standing in front of me. I couldn’t tell if his spirit came to me, or I had gone to wherever his body was. I grabbed him & tried to talk to him, but he didn’t respond. (In hindsight I feel this means it was his physical body, because whenever I visit his Spirit I can "see" his true essence. I think he was at the grocery store at the time - the lighting was different than in our home).
At some point later I found myself at a hard-textured barrier similar to the ceiling. I remember thinking very casually, “Well God... You could, I suppose, decide to take me now.”
Everything opened up and I peered around, focusing on a big swirling Light surrounded by multicolor clouds very far away in space (I sensed it was the tunnel). I realized I didn’t want to go, even though I understood this was a clear chance. I pushed with both hands against the barrier, turned away and floated down. I had a sense that if I went any further, I would not come back.
I don’t remember going back into my body, but I remember a dream I had afterward. I woke up at 5:25 when John came in from the store.
