Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 360- Mr J. Evans, of Selly Oak, Birmingham, sent the following to the Daily Sketch (Oct. 4, 1960):
In 1943 I was admitted to the Birmingham General Hospital. ... I was given an anaesthetic. The next vivid Picture I had was in a state of what seemed to be clear consciousness. I emerged from my body. I emerged seemingly head and shoulders first. ...I stared at this phenomenon. I was free and floating up to the ceiling of the operation theatre. The wonderful part about this was ...I could see my new body. It looked a little longer and more fully developed; my features were full and round. I felt really happy.
I thought how I would like to look at the huge lamp over the table on which my physical body lay! I had no sooner thought this than I was there, examining it. ... After seeing the surgeon being handed certain instruments by the masked helpers, I thought 'I would like to go and look at the table on which the instruments are laid!’
I had only to think this when I immediately passed through all obstacles, including the masked helpers. (This startled me when I became conscious and remembered the incident). Then I decided to look again at the ceiling because I was interested in what seemed to be beautiful pale blue clouds. This pale blue 'fog' seemed to permeate the whole theatre.
Suddenly I was what seemed to me, to be sucked back like a flash towards the body on the table. Then finish. I became physically and mentally conscious in bed in the ward.
Since then I believe in the after-life. I might add, I was very aware and conscious of a Power following every thought. I moved swiftly and graciously. I could float, walk or stand still. I examined my new body. It was beautifully made and well-developed. It was a little taller than my physical body and I looked (and felt) younger. I realize that all this sounds ridiculous. But it was really an experience I did not expect.
