A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall – More Astral projections

Case No. 247 - Mrs J. Watkin of Hove, prefaced her account (in litt., May 29, 1961) by saying, 'What I am writing to you is a true fact I would not dare to do otherwise.’ She is a Baptist. Her narrative is as follows:

I was 14 years of age. I had just got into bed, when my attention was arrested by a soft whirlwind sound coming through the window. Yet it was a still summer's night, with no wind at all. Then two robed men, as solid in appearance as we are to each other, were standing at my bedside. I felt no fear. They gave me a most penetrating look, at and through me, and suddenly I found myself standing between them, and the three of us, looking now at my lifeless-looking body on the bed.

Instinct told me I was going on a long journey. I had no knowledge of such things happening like that; yet I 'knew' it was so natural as well as a miracle of God. Then the three of us went up, through the window, and miles, and miles, up into the Spirit World. I was amazed at the speed, lightness of feeling and the very solid 'matter' of the Spirit World and its breath-taking beauty....

We passed beyond ranges of mountains into the Spirit World where the air is exhilarating like wine ...

I was brought back to my bedroom and there the three of us again stood looking at my lifeless-looking body. Suddenly I slipped easily and swiftly into it.

No pain or queer sensations at all. My Spirit Body is amazingly strong, the duplicate of my physical. The Spirit world is a true real fact.... Astral journeys are delightful and definitely not dreams or visions. They do really happen.
