Fox, Oliver - Wishing himself to Allahabad
Type of Spiritual Experience
He appears to have had no image in his mind of the place he wanted to go to, which is why he never got there!
A description of the experience
Oliver Fox- Astral Projections
I then willed to travel to a certain temple which I have been told once existed in Allahabad. I moved off at great speed and came to rest in a modern brilliantly lighted room. Here a man and a woman were seated at a table, having a meal. They did not seem to see me.
Again I repeated my desire ‘Temple – Allahabad – India – in the past’
And now it seemed to me there was a sort of hole or break formed in the continuity of the astral matter; and through this, in the distance – as though viewed through a very long tunnel – I could see something indistinct which might have been an entrance to a temple, with a statue still further away showing through it.
I then moved forward again, but to my disappointment came to rest almost immediately in another room, where three women were seated at a table which also bore the remains of a meal. A fourth woman – pretty, with fair hair and blue eyes – was standing up in the act of leaving the table. Apparently, none of them could see me.
Sticking to my objective, I once more repeated; ‘Temple – Allahabad – India – in the past’.
The tunnel arrangement was coming into view again, then something must have occurred which broke my trance – though what I do not know. Instantly I rushed back to my body and awoke.
