I was asleep. I had been having the same painful dream for ages: I was next to my sister's grave and I was weeping copiously. I often had this dream. Suddenly, roughly, I came out of my body. I was like a ball, a sphere, and I could feel my sister's presence (also in spherical form). I established perfect communication with her, and she said to me in telepathic form: "So you're there", and I replied in the same way "Yes, I am here". I was floating in the air. Then she sent: "I still exist", and I replied, "OK, I get it". Then she went away towards the right.
Then I "flew" inside my bedroom, moving at the speed of my thoughts: I thought
door, and I was by the door, I thought window and I was next to
the window, it happened very quickly. I said to myself, this is wonderful, I can
go further, but at this point I felt the pangs of death, and decided to return
to my body. I came back to my body and awoke. My eyes were still open.
