Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 199 - Mr A. Crane, of Leicester, sent the following (in litt., Oct. 5, 1960):
I have had a queer experience which I cannot understand. ... I am not a religious man ...
About eighteen months ago I undressed and sat on the bed. I don't know whether I closed my eyes or not but I began to float away with great speed.
I had my father with me (he died a month or two later). We came to a place with grass so green and flowers I have never seen, people, too, men, women and children, and a calmness about everything. It was just beautiful. You didn't seem to talk: you just thought what you wanted to know and the answer came without their talking.
I saw a padre who said, 'Do not be afraid, my son ...' I wasn't afraid. I just felt a calm restfulness.
I was floating again. This time I was alone. I came back to myself again, still sitting on the bed I have wondered a lot about all this, but don't seem to find the answer. ... Was I shown where my father was going, and that it was a better place than this is? I don't know; there's not a day goes by but what I think about it all ...
