A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall – More Astral projections

Case No. 253 - Miss T. Mayo said (in litt., May 31, 1960):

In the early 1920's, about 7 a.m., l had awakened and lay waiting for the maid to bring my cup of tea.  I suddenly found myself wandering about in the hall, wondering what I was doing there.

Going into the back room, it came to me with a shock, that I had passed through the wall, the door still being shut.  Instinctively I knew what had happened. At the same time I heard the maid coming up. Knowing I must be back it my room before she arrived, and also realizing it was not good to 'fly' back, I forced myself to walk up the stairs one by one. As I neared the top I held my hands in front of my face and examined them, exclaiming, 'They are real-real flesh and blood !' The exultation of that moment was great. When I passed into my bedroom I saw my physical body lying in bed. The next moment I was back, the door opened and there was the maid.
