Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 358 - Mrs P. M. Grant, of Chingford, sent the following to the Daily Sketch (Oct. 7, 1960). It concerns an experience under nitrous oxide.
I was given gas and almost immediately found myself up by the ceiling. ... I looked down in wonderment at myself and the dentist in front of me at work. A nurse appeared through a door on the left, which I had not noticed before, but which I subsequently confirmed.
I was now no longer interested in the situation down there, and took stock of my strange situation. My mind was functioning and reasoning in a perfectly normal way. I was in no dream state. I was well aware that something unusual was happening to me. Everything stood out bright and clear, but I was also aware there were no shadows. I myself had no visible shape at all.
Then suddenly I was up there no longer, but back on the ground where I experienced great difficulty in getting back in to myself. This was a very odd feeling. ... I said, 'I must make an effort !' I then exerted a sort of mental force and at last remained within myself ...
I was terrifically impressed by what had happened and could hardly wait to relate my experience to my husband. Fortunately, knowing me well, he realized that this really had happened to me. We both came to the conclusion that here was absolute proof that our Spiritual Self can and does function not only as well as, but better than, when it is confined to our physical body. Therefore, for us life-after-death became an established fact.
