A description of the experience
From Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
-Mrs L. Hemingway Light, vol. LV, 193, p.101, recounted the experience of a friend. It was as follows:
While living in India with his parents, he became very ill and the doctors said there was no hope of recovery. During his unconscious state (which lasted twenty minutes), his spirit must have left the physical body. He first went to his mother, who was in his bedroom, crying. He could not understand why she was crying and why she could not see him. Then he moved through the closed door to see his father in another room, and here again he was puzzled as to why his father would not speak to him. Then he thought he would visit his fiancée who lived hundreds of miles away. As quickly as he thought it, he arrived at the house, only to find the gates padlocked. This he thought was most unusual, yet he passed through these gates into the bungalow and found the place empty.
He thought she had probably gone to stay with General X, several hundred miles away, and, with the thought, he was at the General's house, where he found his fiancee in great distress, and still he could not understand why they would not speak to him. Then he decided to go to Bombay and take a boat to England. Again, as quickly as he thought, he was on board the s.s. Rewa. He went up to the ship's captain and again wondered why he would not answer.
He went to the purser, only to find the same trouble. Then, he said, he felt something (-his body) like ropes tug, tug, tugging, and he became conscious.
He told his experiences to the doctor. The latter said that the part about the s.s. Rewa was not correct, as that boat was not due in until the following day. However, the doctor came the following day and said that the ship was 'in' a day before she was expected and actually was in the dock at the time of this man's unconscious visit.
Also he found out afterwards that his fiancee was staying with General X, and that she was distressed just as he had found her, over the telegram she had received saying there was no hope of his recovery. Also her bungalow gates were padlocked just as he had 'seen' them ..."
