A description of the experience
Case No. 161-Mrs J. Douglas Newton
Mrs Newton (in litt., Oct. 7, 1960) said,
"My son, then 8 years of age, who had never heard of anything of this sort, had gone to bed one night and was lying reading. Suddenly he called rather urgently for me. I found him sitting up, rather scared. He said,
"Such a funny thing has happened. I was just lying reading when I felt I was rising into the air. I seemed to go up near the ceiling. Then I looked down and could see myself lying in bed. I came slowly down. Then I called out".
"I assured him there was nothing to be afraid of, and that it sometimes happened to people.
"My father’s 'double' was also seen several times when he [physical body] was asleep in bed and on one occasion actually woke my brother and his wife.”
