Experience description:  

For the longest time I've always thought this was a dream. I don't know when it happened, I can just say that it has been with me for as long as I can remember.  

I was about 2 or 3 years old. I woke up in the middle of the night and walked down the hallway to use the bathroom. While in the hallway of the upstairs, my father stopped me and said that he loved me and that everything was going to be okay and that I needed to get back to bed.
