Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Lucid dreams – Celia Green
My first experience of being [out of body] occurred when I was a child between three and a half and four. I had a very bad attack of scarlet fever and nearly died.
At the foot of my bed was a wardrobe. On the top of this my toys had been placed. I used to see a broad shaft of light streaming from my toys. I never succeeded in getting to the top, but would feel myself pulled backward.
I could see my bed beneath me, but also I could see myself climbing, from a position in the bed corresponding to my normal visual field. I saw myself dressed in a sailor suit similar to that which I usually wore. Double vision was thus involved; seeing from my physical body my [spirit] body and from my [spirit] the bed a few feet beneath me.
I cannot now recall whether my double vision was simultaneous or not that is whether I had my physical sight one moment and spirit sight at another
