A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No. 314 - Mrs C. M. Langridge, of Poole, Dorset, sent descriptions of both her own and her husband's out-of-the-body experiences to the Daily Sketch (Oct. 4, 1960). She said:

Both are true in every detail. I had a severe operation. Three day, later, when my husband visited me, he asked how I felt? I replied that I did not feel too well. Almost immediately I was unaware of any material things - I was outside my body, suspended in air, and looking down upon my body. Three or four people were reviving me. I was in a pleasant state of freedom and thought, 'I wish these people- would leave me alone! '

Later, when I had returned to my body, I asked my husband what had happened and if anyone had been in my room? He replied that I had collapsed, that he had fetched sister who, 'in turn, had fetched the doctor and that, for some minutes, they thought I should die.

It caused great disappointment to me that I had been caused to return to my body and lose the wonderful feeling of freedom. This was not a dream, nor was I under the influence of drugs. It was a fact.

My husband was ill and collapsed. The following morning he said, 'I have been a long way away and couldn't get back to you.' I asked where he had been and he replied, 'I don't know, but it was light, so very light !' I asked if he was happy there? He said, 'Yes, it was light and peaceful.' For six months he lived on, but never forgot his experience. Indeed he referred to it a few days before he died. I believe that he 'died' and returned-there can be no other explanation."
