A description of the experience
A Record of Out of the Body Experiences – Oliver Fox
Let him first try to sit up out of his body; that is, he will not try to move his physical body by any muscular effort, but make a purely mental attempt. Unless it happens to be one of those cases where the ‘pineal door’ has been passed while the student was unconscious, he will certainly fail and nothing will happen.
Let him now concentrate all his will power on the idea of jumping out of, or hurling himself from his body, and in all probability he will succeed in making his first instantaneous projection. He will find himself passing in a flash through the walls of the house; and after that almost anything may seem to happen to him until something occurs to break the trance. There will be no difficulty about coming back, for he will return to his body as quickly as he departed from it, and his condition should become normal almost immediately.
