Dr Robert Crookall – More Astral projections

Case No. 256 – Mr Thomas Heslop, of East Bolden, Co. Durham, wrote (in litt.,June 1, 1961):

It was a Saturday night. I was reading at about midnight when I heard my daughter coughing upstairs. I wondered whether to take up some cough mixture or not. But I decided that she might have coughed in her sleep, so put the bottle down and went to bed. I lay awake until about 3 a.m. Then suddenly, I found myself gripped at each side of the waist and.. found myself where I was thinking of going before I went to bed - at her bedside.

All was dark, but before me stood a figure of golden light - it was my daughter!

I thought, 'She has passed out! 'and asked, 'Is my little girl all right?' ...

Then the thumb of the left hand of the person holding me was pressed into my side. I took a sudden deep breath and found myself back in bed. She was her usual cheerful self the next morning.
