Laubscher, B J F – Mr de K from Pretoria University goes out of body with a friend
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
B J Laubscher – Where Mystery dwells
A Mr. de K. a student of Pretoria University communicated with me in Afrikaans about his own experience and those of a friend in attempting voluntary astral projection by means of concentration.
His friend became somewhat frightened after his first awareness of being out of his physical body, and thereafter gave it up for a time, because when he found himself out of his physical body, he thought he was dead and this terrified him. I suppose he had a sort of repercussive effect.
After he had overcome his early anxieties, he tried again and succeeded in existing in his astral form completely away from his body. He also found that he often visited a little village in his astral body, which a friend of his who also projected astrally described to him as one of the familiar scenes of his journeys on the astral plane. His friend made several interesting observations while in the astral form. He found for example that he could differentiate a multitude of wonderful colours in that atmosphere.
These were aesthetically supremely impressive.
