Out of Body Experiences

Can you please help me with a long unanswered question? Today I watched yet another show on Near Death Experience where several people momentarily died and they had an out of body experience. I too have had this same experience of feeling the spirit leave the body, looking down on yourself as you float towards the light, etc., but I have never died. In fact. as far back as I can remember, it has been a daily part of my life. It wasn’t until I was 17 and I happened upon a science show, that I learned of the term “out of body”, and it was then that I realized I was different and it scared me. It then took me another 10 years to stop it, but I feel like I lost something with it. Have you heard of this before, is it normal, and can you help me understand it? Your advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
