Case No.225 - Mr Evan Powell, J.P.
A lady, "D.T.'W'.", sent the following query to Evan Powell and it was published, with the reply, in Psychic News, Feb. 4, 1956.
In a dream I saw a man in deep distress lying on a bed and standing by the bedside was his double. I said to the standing one, 'You must help him: you must not leave him like that.' In the morning my husband, who had been far from well, told me he had an alarming 'turn' in the night and would have called out but did not because he knew I was so tired. Was he out of the body, and did I see it in my dream?"
Mr Powell replied that it was so and that he himself had had similar experiences. Thereupon the present writer submitted his questionnaire to Mr Powell. Asked if he had read any books or heard about astral projection from others before having the experience, he replied,
"No book; not from others: the experiences came as a surprise (fifty-eight years ago). I was aided, or taken on, these journeys. I visited both earth-and astral-scenes in, my early days."
Consciousness was more vivid when out of the body than normally. Details of out-of- the-body experiences were "most certainly" better remembered than the details of earth-life: Mr Powell, who saw his own body, never thought that he might be dreaming: he was "too conscious of its reality". He found that
The physical body ceased to have a pull after about ten to twelve yards.
…..Mr Powell, when out of the body, communicated with the "dead".
