A description of the experience
Dr Robert Crookall – More Astral projections
Case No. 260 - Mrs D. M. White, of North Western Avenue, North Watford, sent the following letter to the Daily Sketch (Oct. 1960).
I was quite surprised to see your article ‘Uncanny Evidence', dated October 4th because, having had a similar experience thirty years ago, I have never read or heard of anybody else experiencing anything like it, and, as you stated, people are reluctant to speak of such an experience because of being thought a crank. Such was my case. I related it to two persons on two occasions and received such an odd look I have kept silence since.
This experience happened when I was 8 years of age. I was walking along alone and it suddenly came into my mind how wonderful the human body is. I lifted my left arm and held it above my head. I was thinking 'One could control every part of the body just by thinking about it!' and suddenly I stepped out of my body and saw myself standing there with my arm held up.
The sensation I had when I was viewing my earthly body was one of holiness - it was a beautiful moment. Many years have passed, but one does not forget an experience like this !
I puzzled about it for years. ... Every word I have written is true. I have had a feeling of divinity since that occurrence, though I seldom go to church. I know in my heart that there must be something behind all this.
