A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No.164 - Mrs Florence Roberts

Mrs Roberts sent the following (in litt.,Oct. 4, 1960):

"I have had many out-of-the-body experiences when a child. ... I found myself above my physical body on the bed. During these experiences I used to examine myself.

‘I’ found I was quite solid apart from my physical body - in fact so real that I was amazed. Because of frequent out-of-the-body experiences I was able to get a closer look at my other self: the skin was the same, breathing etc. an exact replica of my physical body. It was an amazing experience. Well I was quite used to these experiences as a child. I still have them, but not quite the same.

"At one time I found myself outside the house but suspended above the roof-top and ... became conscious of everyone in the world. .I seemed to be conscious of their thoughts. ... It seemed as if my consciousness had expanded and I felt strangely linked with all the people in the world-as if their thought-consciousness belonged to me also.
