Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 331 - Mrs E. M, Dawson sent the following to the Daily Sketch (Oct. 7, 1960):
I had undergone a major operation. ... In the evening I became aware that I was standing by the bed, looking down at myself. Around the bed, and very busy, were figures in white. I heard a voice say 'collapse', and saw someone fiddling with something bright. As I looked, I saw myself wipe my fingers over my forehead and down the side of my nose. They were wet, and I thought, 'That must be death sweat.' I felt no fear or pain, just detached curiosity. I heard a voice say, 'She will be alright now !', and, to my real annoyance, I neither saw nor heard any more.
Afterwards I learned that I had had an unexpected haemorrhage and an emergency blood transfusion, and later I recognized that the hand fiddling with the bright things must have been a nurse adjusting some clips on the transfusion tube. I had been very near to death. Since then I am confident that death is a perfectly natural, painless passing from one body to another. Please believe me, I was not conscious in the ordinary way of what was happening, and the 'Me' that saw and heard was an entirely different 'Me' from the one on the bed."
