Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Case No. 178 - Mrs Rene Abrahams, of Pricelet Street, London, E.1, sent the following (in litt., Oct. 10, 1961):
Today I have taken from the public library your book The Study and Practice of Astral Projection, and I see that you would like any reader to write to you if they have had any experience that correspond with those described in the book.
Well, I think I must have been having them for quite a number of years but put them down to nightmares owing to the fact that I knew nothing about astral projection. My experience is that I have no knowledge whatsoever of having been out of my body, but I always have a dreadful whirring noise in my head and I am being whirled around and around appearing to come from somewhere high up and I am conscious in my dream, as I think it is at the time, of saying to myself, 'I must be dying or I can't come out of this spin' as I never think I am going to awake from them, and I am surprised when I find that I do, as they are terrifying at the time.
One night last week I felt myself beginning to float upwards and I said to myself, 'Oh, no ! Not that!' so I just came down.
Now, after reading your book, it all seems very clear that I have been having out-of-the-body sessions, though I have no recollection of them - only the sensation of coming back, again.
In fact, I wrote only a few days ago to someone who is quite a famous person in psychic circles, asking if he could help me why I should have the sensation of floating. I am unable to tell you his name, as he would be furious. ...
But it is beside the point. I just mentioned this so (that), if at some later date this needs to be confirmed, he may ... prove that I had this floating feeling before I read your book.
