Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No. 180 - Miss "Hindhead"  said, (in litt., Oct. 5, 1960):

I would like to recall my true testament in connection with your series of articles entitled 'Life After Death'.

The year 1941. I was living in a requisitioned building on the South coast. My cubicle was on the top floor. The hit-and-run air raids commenced. Having no faith in those days, I was terrified. 'When the enemy came over, I would race down the stairs to the safety of the cellars. One day I was too late-they were overhead. I was petrified with fear as I lay on top of my bed, waiting. When all at once I was out of the body and floating a foot or so above the bed. l gazed down at my earthly body. All fear had gone in a wonderful feeling of lightness and freedom.

The following day I hesitatingly related my experience to my friend-nurse, a matter-of-fact, 'earthy' person. She remarked, 'You experienced the approach of death as witnessed by the dying !' This true testimony may help those who, unlike myself, fear death.
