Background

A description of the experience

Mrs G. A. Paton of Hove, sent her account to the Daily Sketch.

summarised by Dr Robert Crookall - More Astral projections

"She 'died' and her death certificate was signed by her doctor. But she herself was “free from pain" and felt "as light as air". She could "float at will, easily and quickly". She left the earth and found herself "in a lovely place" which she believed to be Paradise. A helper came and they communicated without the use of words.

She said, "I would rather go on, but I must go back to my husband." He replied, "It will be difficult, I will help you."

Mrs "Paton" immediately travelled earthwards, she began to lose her “sense of lightness" and to feel pain. In these circumstances it was only with "great effort" that she forced herself to return. She eventually arrived in the death-chamber and saw her own corpse. The nurse was writing. She spoke to her and the nurse dropped her pen, stifling a scream.

During the time that she was 'dead', Mrs "Paton" observed many things about her house that were beyond her present sight. After she re-entered her body they were able to check these observations.
