Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 205- Mr Ernest G. Murray, of Leytonstone, E.11, sent the following (in litt., Oct. 10, 1960):
Re your article in the Daily Sketch: first, I would like to thank you for printing these facts. For years I have been in wonder regarding my experiences of astral projection.
Some thirty-four years ago-at the age of 20 I kissed my mother, who suffered from migraine, 'Good-night'. When I lay thinking in bed my body felt larger; it was quite a pleasant feeling. I fell asleep. After some hours I got out of bed. I walked through my bedroom door and through my mother's bedroom door. She was sitting up in her bed, rocking backwards and forwards with her head in her hands. I placed my hands on her head and said, 'Lie down -it's 2 a.m. and time you were asleep !' She laid her head on the pillow and said, 'Thank you, son!'
I returned to my bedroom, walking through the two doors. I saw my body in bed, and I climbed back into my body. The next thing I knew was that I was sitting up in bed.
The time came for me to rise to go to work. I got up at 6.30 a.m. and asked my mother how she felt, as I handed her her tea. She replied, ‘It was nice of you to come to me. But what was I doing awake at 2 in the morning?'
Her words proved to me that I had not been dreaming and I realized that my body was made up of two parts. Since that first experience I have had the knowledge that my spirit was leaving my body and I was floating over high buildings. But I fought against it, because I was worried. ... I am sound in my mind and body and I know definitely that 'astral projection' is true.
