A description of the experience
Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 372 - Mrs D. R. Lissmore of Hatfield, sent this (in litt.,Oct. 4, 1960 )
When I was twenty-one, in the W.A.A.F., I had fallen deeply asleep. The girl who occupied the bed next to mine came in from a dance at 1 a.m. She had ice on her heels and slipped. As she fell, she brought her arm down across my chest with great force. When the blow fell it seemed to me that I was very far away. I could hear my body give a scream-not very loud because I was not there to give any power to it.
I was not frightened, although my body screamed-I was too much occupied in getting back to take control of my body. It seemed that 'I' came rushing back through the darkness at great speed, took control, opened my eyes, and stopped screaming. ... Is this just the normal experience of a person suddenly awakened from a deep sleep, or does it have a deeper significance?"
