A description of the experience

Out of the Body Experiences – Celia Green

I was working as a waitress in a local restaurant and had just finished a 12 hour stint. I was terribly fatigued and was chagrined to find I had missed the last bus.... However I started walking as in those days I lived in Jericho, a 15 minute walk at most. I remember feeling so fatigued that I wondered if I'd make it and resolved to myself that I'd got to keep going.

At this time, I was where the Play house is today. The next I registered, was of hearing the sound of my heels very hollowly and I looked down and watched myself walk round the bend of Beaumont street into Walton street.

I, the bit of me that counts – was up on a level with Worcester college chapel. I saw myself very clearly – it was a summer evening and I was wearing a sleeveless shantung dress. I remember thinking 'so that's how I look to other people'
