Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

The Mystical Life – J H M Whiteman

Early in the afternoon I awoke to find myself walking through the hall which adjoined my bedroom . . . I was half-way down the hall when I woke up . . . 'Of all things!' I said to myself, 'I have been walking in my sleep!

I surely will catch more cold.' . . . I turned around and went back, and as I passed into my bedroom through the open door, I was shaken with amazement-there I was still lying in bed! . . . I was so real that I kept feeling myself to make sure that this was not a hallucination. . . . Then I remembered falling or gliding sideways, and struggling to get back into my body, which was like being put into a case. . . .
