A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No. 375 - Samuel Woolf of Chicago, Ill., U.S.A., sent the following (in litt., Sept. 5, 1961) :

While in Denver very recently I received a copy of your book The Study and Practice of Astral Projection and found it very stimulating. I did read The Projection of the Astral Body (by Muldoon) about two years ago. In it l found the answer to the question which had been bothering me for many years. Previously I knew nothing about occultism, etc., because, due to my life-time deafness, I was practically isolated from many things which I am learning at the present.

In 1932 my parents and I were in Wisconsin for a few days. One dark night I was walking with my mother on the left side of the road back to our hotel and a car swerved far to the left, hitting me in the right thigh. All of a sudden, I went through the sensation of a locomotive ploughing into me. I saw my figure on the ground struggling to get up for a few seconds and then I found myself getting up. It was ten feet away when I saw my own body getting up. So for many years I wondered why I saw my own body-and found the answer in the book.
