A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No. 187 - A Professor and a colleague of Professor Wm. James at Harvard the report appeared in the Journ. A.S.P.R. (II), April, 1908.  He told James:

 'A' and I were interested in ... a book by Sinnett on Esoteric Buddhism and ... talked a good deal ... about the astral body, but neither ever made any proposal to the other to try any experiments in that line.

One morning, about 9.45 or 10 a.m., I resolved to try whether I could project my astral body to the presence of 'A'. ... I opened my window, which looked towards 'A's house (though that was half a mile away ...), sat in a chair and tried as hard as I could to wish myself into the presence of 'A'. ... I sat there in that state of wishing for about ten minutes. Nothing abnormal in the way of feelings happened to me.

"Next day I met 'A', who said something to this effect: 'Last night, about ten o'clock, I was in the drawing room at supper with "B". Suddenly I thought I saw you looking in through the crack of the door at the end of the room, towards which I was looking. I said to "B": "There is Blank, looking through the crack of the door !" "B", whose back was towards the door, said, "He can't be there, he would come right in !" However, I got up and looked in the outer room, but there was no one there. Now what were you doing last night at that time?' This is what 'A' told me and I then explained what I had been doing."
