Bouissou, Mme Michael – An example of an ‘astral projection’
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Cited in Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
The following is Mme Bouissou's description of her own deliberate projection (op cit., p.142).
"Lying in bed, I concentrated firmly on the place I wanted to visit. After about twenty minutes I felt my body leave a kind of narrow sheath, enclosing it from the feet to the shoulder, my head always remaining free. I heard a sort of silky rustle accompanying the 'skinning' process. A pause of a few minutes preceded a second and then the third shedding of the body-shells.
Before my eyes a black disc spun at great speed suddenly giving place to a narrow corridor which I entered. After this ensued a phantesmagoria, i.e. Launched in the air ... I travelled at tremendous speed, a distance which was sometimes very great, without at the outser, seeing anything my rigid body making not the least movement.
In this world on the fringe of our own I could feel teeming living forces and occasionally harmful rays. ... At a certain moment this chaotic darkness gave place to a soft natural light ... although it was night for my physical body. This allowed me to see clearly. ... I passed through walls and doors in order to see what I wanted to see."
It is interesting that Mme Bouissou's description of the re-entry of her ' double' into her physical body says " It caused the same gentle rustle of the three sheaths that was felt when I left the body."
