Falling down and meeting a monk
Type of Spiritual Experience
BackgroundNot sure which type of experience it is, a fall in a tunnel can be past lives
A description of the experience
Lucid dreams – Celia Green
I had decided to attempt an out of body experience, so I had partially fasted all day. I lay down on the bed and concentrated. After a time I felt myself falling, as usual at the start of these experiences. One seems to fall and then checks oneself and returns.
After a short time I succeeded in letting myself fall but on this occasion I went on falling for much longer than usual. I seemed to be going down through miles and miles of cotton wool, and I had the feeling that it was closing me in and that I should never be able to get back. Also I had the idea that I was going back in the past.
Finally the fall came to an end and I found myself standing in the corridor of a monastery. It was not anywhere I knew, but I had this feeling it was some time in the past. Then a monk came along the corridor and seemed to see me. He stopped and spoke to me and asked what I wanted.
I could not make any reply, and then he made the sign of the cross in my direction and I felt as if he had told me to go away. At that I returned to my body and my bed
