I had a strange experience when I was 11yo (I am 51 now). My siblings and friends and I were playing a game called "Blackout" The person playing the game would inhale and exhale several times and then someone would pick that person up by lifting the participant by their stomach; which would cause the participant to pass out. I know this sounds like a weird game, but you know kids! : ) Anyway, I blacked out and awoke on the top of a hill in what I would describe as an African village. I got to know the villagers and lived with them for three years. The last thing I can remember was sitting across from someone while the were crushing some sort of grain or food in a large flat bowl (sort of like using a mortar and pestle). I was sitting on the ground crossed legged with a baby on my lap (not my own). At this point I realized that I had been "gone" for three years and I needed to go back. I told the tribe, now my dear friends, that I had to leave. We gathered and hugged and they all stood together and waved goodbye as I walked up the hill. I awoke on the floor of the playroom surrounded by the kids I had been playing with. I was surprised as I had thought I might wake in the hospital in a coma due to how long it had been (in my mind). I awoke shouting, "I'm OK!" The children didn't seem worried and I asked how long I had been "out" they said maybe 3 seconds. I was so sad and went up to my room and cried for a long time. At the time I remembered people's names and details about the village but now cannot. I felt that I had lost these people that I loved forever and could not imagine how I could get back to them. I really want to go under hypnosis and see if I can get to the bottom of this experience.
