Fox, Oliver - In an unknown country
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
A Record of Out of the Body Experiences – Oliver Fox
Lying on the sofa in the afternoon with my eyes closed, I suddenly found that I could see the pattern of the sofa back. This told me that I was in the trance condition.
I then left my body, by willing myself out of it, and experienced an extremely sudden transition to a beautiful unknown stretch of country. There I walked for some time over wild and charming ground beneath a bright blue sky in which were fleecy sunlit clouds. All too soon my body called me back, and on my homeward flight I distinctly remember passing right through a horse and van which were standing in some unfamiliar street. The actual appearance of the London sky at the time of making this experiment is unknown to me. I should have made a point of observing it directly the trance was over.
