Out of Body Experience after Meditation

I have had this happen to me several times before but I called it Levitation, which I now realize is inaccurate.

In the last two months I have been on a journey of self discovery and after talking at length to a dear trusted friend I found out they, too are on this journey. They gave me several references to read and lectured me on the importance of meditation and how to do it successfully.

I tried outdoors last night but could not do as they suggested, it was my first attempt in the manner they advised but I did get 'odd' sensations that lasted milliseconds, it is hard to describe. When I laid down for the evening, I started researching the Pineal Gland and other things related to this course I am on. Once I closed my laptop, I began to meditate as I laid in my bed. I am not sure how long I meditated and I am not sure if I had fallen asleep when this occurred but my spirit left my body. I floated like a weightless bubble, bouncing off of things, going through walls

- even to the exterior of my house but everything above my shoulders stayed inside of my bedroom. Even with my back to everything below me, I could see everything below me - my dogs, my bed, the floor and I believe my daughter was standing in the doorway. If it was not her, it was something there but my dogs did not growl or bark, which is what they would normally do when they sense something outside of the bedroom door. I know that something was occurring because my brain was super active and I could hear buzzing or some kind of sound in my ears coming from my brain.

This all would make people think I was crazy if I discussed it in common company, so I had to find a forum to discuss it and try to get a better understanding of what has occurred. It has happened to me a number of times

in the past but I didn't research what it was. Now that I am learning what I am learning about the mind, consciousness, light and awareness of things outside of my physical being, I am hoping someone can help me understand this. I do not use any type of medications, I do not use recreational drugs and I do not drink alcohol. I do smoke menthol cigarettes, but other than that I am 'clean'.
