A description of the experience

Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

Case No. 165-The Hon. Mrs L. E. Lambert

Mrs Lambert, of Ower, Hampshire, sent the following (in litt.,Dec. 2, 1961):

"Having recently read your very interesting book, The Study and Practice of Astral Projection, I felt I ought to let you have my own out-of-the-body experience. I am now 59, quite ordinary, and this experience took place when I was between 9 and 11 years old.

"I was in bed in the night nursery at the time having the usual supper of a glass of milk. It was about 6.30 p.m.; the windows were open and the room fully daylight. I was lying perfectly happy when suddenly I shot out of my body.

I ('double') lay about six feet up, looking down at myself (body). I was very happy and feeling very free. The one in bed looked also quite happy. I had just decided to take off and leave that one and was feeling a terrific urge to go upwards when I heard a voice commanding me to go back. I obeyed against my will.

To this day I can still feel the sensation of trapped dullness as I filtered back, into what seemed dense trappings."
