Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 315 - Mrs R. Ramsden, of Strood, sent the following (Oct. 4, 1960):
While reading your article in the Daily Sketch, it reminded me of the time, eighteen years ago, the day after I had my son. I was in bed, but was not asleep. I heard the lady who was looking after me come into the room. I asked her the time.
Then I felt myself floating into space. I asked her to put me into the bed. I could hear her saying I was in bed. But I was looking down on her.
I could see her holding me in bed. I heard her call my husband and tell him to fetch a doctor. I could see all that was going on. I saw the ambulance men put me on a stretcher and carry me out. After that I saw nothing.
But even now, while lying in bed, I can feel myself floating into space sometimes. I let myself go as far as seeing myself in bed. I thought it was bad for me to do this, but now I am beginning to wonder if it is anything like you have described in your article? If so, I shan't be frightened any more. I have never told anyone about this. But now and again, when I jump up in bed, my husband asks ‘What is the matter?' I say, 'Oh ! I felt myself sinking !' Perhaps it is what you have written about? I hope so.
