Strange Vipassana Experience

My mind keeps turning back to a strange experience I had during my vipassana retreat. So I was practicing the vipassana technique and felt as though my consciousness was trying to leave my body through the top of my head. Or like I was trying to stand up (without my body). But it was if there was a glass ceiling above me, preventing me from fully leaving.  The “secret ceiling door” would give only a little; but ultimately, I couldn’t go any further.

I can’t help but wonder why? What was the harm in my leaving? Was I on the brink of experiencing samadhi? Would I have died if I made it through that opening, but it wasn’t actually samadhi?
