A description of the experience
William Buhlman – The Secret of the Soul
Tom T Dallas, Texas
I have been blind since I was nine years old. My mother bought me your book and would read it to me every night before bed. I was especially intrigued with the part about crippled people being able to walk during their out of body experience. She read that part to me many times, and I decided that if it would work with walking, why not seeing?
Every night as I went to sleep I would walk around the house and feel my way through several rooms.
After a while I became very good at it. During the second week I started to get a buzzing sound in my head and I got excited and woke up. It was in the fourth week that it happened. I fell asleep and felt paralyzed and heard weird sounds; then it felt like I was being lifted up and out of my body. I rolled sideways and seemed to fall to the floor and crawled around for a moment.
To my surprise I couldn't see at all and began to actually get mad. Then I remembered about control and demanding results, so I spontaneously shouted out “I can see now!” Slowly I began to make out shadowy forms around me. I shouted again “I see now!” Everything around me became a little brighter, and I was thrilled. I stood up and actually looked around. I could see, even though I knew it had to be dark! I was so excited I wanted to fly, and suddenly I shot up through the ceiling like a rocket. Everything was happening so fast it scared me, and I felt like I was jerked back to my body with a jolt
