A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No. 339 - Kathleen Snowden sent (in litt., Oct. 6, 1960):

I was 16 years old, ill in bed. I told my mother I thought I was going to faint... I felt myself drifting away from her. Suddenly I realized a feeling of great excitement, wonder and delight surpassing anything I had ever experienced as I felt my body completely weightless and floating upwards in a golden glow towards a wonderful light around hazy welcoming figures and the whole air was filled with beautiful singing.

I floated joyfully towards the light and then I heard my mother's voice calling me. My whole being revolted against going back.... Her voice grew nearer and, to my great distress, I felt myself slipping away from that wonderful light and merging into a dull black cloud where my heaviness of body returned. ... My mother thought I had died; I had seemed to stop breathing. ... I am now 42 and the wonder of it still remains. It was a revelation.

I cannot feel now that death is the end, but a beginning to something so wonderful that it is past human understanding. Yet I was once terribly afraid of death.
