Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections – Mrs N. Matile recounts a childhood OBE
Type of Spiritual Experience
For those who say this is a huge gap between recounting and experiencing, a genuine experience is not only never forgotten, it remains vivid in your mind until the day you die
A description of the experience
Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 241- Mrs N. Matile, now 67, wrote (in litt.,May 26, 1961) and told of an experience that occurred when she was 8 years old. Her account is as follows:
One night, when I had been in bed for a short time, I found myself floating above my bed (about three feet above).I then quickly passed out of the window to the middle of the Mews where we were living. It was a starry night and it was a lovely feeling, floating in the air. It seemed to last a few minutes and then I seemed to drop and felt myself trying to keep up. I then (against my wish) passed back through the room and hovered over my bed and was very surprised to see myself lying down, looking quite dead……
While I was looking down at myself on the bed, I felt a click and then I was looking up from the bed. As a child, I felt thrilled at that experience and tried to float myself the next night. At last I succeeded, but I was out through the window and back quickly. I felt no shock whatever. It was the only time anything like that happened to me. It was only when I reached the age of 30 that I realized the meaning of my childhood experience.
