Case No. 342 – Mr F.E. G. Lewis from Burnham-on-sea, sent the following from hospital (in litt., Oct.7, 1960):
For fourteen years I have been an acute bronchial asthmatic and have been more or less confined to bed for the last two years. I have left my body on several occasions when all hope had been given up. I had similar experiences in my earlier life when fit. My most recent one was this year. Dates and witnesses can substantiate my telling this after my 'return'.
I was having a very acute attack and, after being given an injection, I had a relapse and completely collapsed. My only memory of this was finding myself next morning in the local (Burnham) hospital and that I had been standing by the bedroom window, elbow leaning on a radiogram, watching my own body slumped over the bedside table and saying, what have they done to me?' on telling my wife and friends what had happened, they described everything correct as I had seen it.
Ten years ago I was taught deep breathing and how to relax at Bristol General Hospital. When relaxing at home during this period, I had an experience which really scared me. Again I was looking down at my body, with the thought, 'Time to 'come' to !' Then the most awful sensation of being in my body but could not move. I wanted to shout. When I did move, I sat up and perspired. I was so scared [that] I didn't tell my wife (who asked why I was perspiring?) until next day.
My first experience mentioned here was discussed with male nurses in the Hospital a couple of weeks before your article appeared and can be substantiated. There is no doubt in my mind (that) there is a life after death and a soul to our body.
