I had an astral experience in Falls Church, Virginia; an isolated area where I owned a home with my husband. The night before the experience, I looked out of my window, down at the very area where my life would change forever. I could see myself above my body, looking down at the driveway; this was not rare for me to do, however, I noticed a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Something wasn’t right. I worked 30 miles from my home, with a lot of responsibilities as a nurse, and I had forgotten my astral projection during the course of the day.
After work, I went to dinner with my friend, and drove her home. I put the heater on in the car. It was a bit chilly – the car smelled funny, like wires burning, and my friend said to me: “Don’t go home tonight – stay with me.” I told my friend – “I’ll be okay – I’ll stop at a gas station if I have problems.” As I made it into my circular driveway, I noticed my Siberian Husky Bo inside the locked fence, looking at me with one blue eye and one brown eye. She was still a pup, and she was greeting me by rubbing against the fence. I knew she was special when I got her, and that night she helped saved my life.
I could smell the smoke. It was choking me, and I tried to get out of the car, but the doors wouldn’t budge. The electrical system wasn’t working, and the smoke was getting worse. I saw sparks in the front of the car. I could see Bo trying to bite and then jump over the fence, trying to reach me.
I couldn’t breathe now, and I tried to find something to break the window. I only had my bag with me, and I was wearing rubber soles – kicking the windows out didn’t work. I didn’t have cell reception in the country yet, and I sat there breathing smoke, crying – I wasn’t able to break the windows. I felt myself passing out, and as I tried to keep my strength, I felt myself rise above the car. I could see myself within it.
Bo was looking up at me, and I told her to go inside and get my husband. She was barking so loud that it sounded like a scream. The front door was closed, but my husband’s window was open. Bo kept barking, scratching the door wildly. I could see myself passed out in the car, but I was able to keep calm and speak to my dog. She was doing everything she could to help me, as I watched her plead for my life. She saw the door open before I did, and my husband ran out of the house. He ran over to the car, saw the smoke, ran in the house and then came back with a hammer and began busting the window on the passenger side, opening the door and pulling me out. I could hear him trying to talk to me, but I couldn’t reply. I saw him from above, and as I came to, I slowly drifted back into my body – he was giving me mouth-to-mouth. I heard sirens: he had called 911.
The astral experience was something I hadn’t experienced before in this manner – being able to see myself and make a connection with my dog Bo. I was able to stay calm above the situation, which I think helped. It was an amazing thing – and I know that my dog saw and heard me from above and saved my life.
