I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. One of the subjects that I heard my parents and their friends talk about was the human spirit travelling outside the body while the body was asleep. My mother told me a story about something that happened to her before I was born.

My older brother was about 6 years old and he wanted to spend the night with his cousin. At about 3 am in the morning, my mother woke up after hearing my brother calling for her. She thought that she had been dreaming, so she turned over and tried to go back to sleep. She heard him call her again and she sat up in bed.

My dad was disturbed by her movement and sat up and said, “What is it?” She told me that when he spoke, there was a disturbance at the foot of their bed and she felt something brush her lightly as it passed by and went out the window, which was open at the head of the bed. She was frightened, but my dad told her it was nothing and eventually, they both drifted off to sleep.

The next day, when my brother returned home, he told my mom that he had had a bad dream and had woken up calling for her.

My aunt then told my mother and father that he had indeed woken up at 3 am calling out, “Mama!”

To this day, my mom believes that my brother’s spirit travelled from his body that night and came home.
