A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No. 240 Mrs M. Tolkien’s mother died. Six months later she felt "numb" and "lost consciousness".

I seemed to float towards a high sandy cliff, floated across the sea and back again. I looked at my arms and thought to myself, 'Yes ! It is me, and l am astral travelling !' I knew I was out of my body. ...

Once again I came to at the foot of my bed, and my mother was sitting there. I said, 'I have been looking everywhere for you!' Then I was over my body on the bed ... and remember no more until I found myself back in my body."
