Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections
Mrs Vera Oates, of Northampton, wrote (in litt., Oct. 4, 1960):
I was amazed today when my daughter brought in the Daily Sketch and said, ‘Look, Mum, this is what happened to you !' For although this thing happened over ten years ago, I don't think anyone ever believed it -in fact, lots have laughed at it ! It is the sort of thing that has never happened to them and until reading your article today I didn't know it had happened to others!
The thing was this: in the early hours of the morning I was suddenly wide awake, but, to my amazement, ‘I’ was hovering between the ceiling and the bed. I looked down and saw myself on the bed. I was still attached in some queer way. I was swaying first towards the ceiling, then down a little, then gently towards the window. This gentle floating feeling, quite pleasant but bewildering, kept on for some time. Always I felt as if attached to my body somehow. I was a little scared. I kept thinking
'Please let me go back !' - and suddenly I was ! I was never conscious of the journey back, though.
How I've been laughed at over the years ! Today I feel happy as you have explained it all!
