A description of the experience
The Mystical Life – J H M Whiteman
April 1935. Becoming aware of the disjunction of spaces which sometimes initiates separation, and being to all appearances in bed, I rose in the separated form, leaving the physical body still sleeping. The room in which the separated form was placed bore only a general resemblance to the physical bedroom, though there was a persuasion to think it the same.
A mirror was at hand, but knowing from previous experience that curiosity to look at one's appearance sometimes leads to effects of fantasy, I refrained from looking, and proceeded to the door. This, however, had no handle; and again disinclined to make actions from self-will, I turned to the windows and opened them, partly to look out or escape, and partly because the air in the room seemed stuffy, so that breathing was difficult.
On trying to take deep breaths, a strange feeling almost like a smell, was very realistically felt in the lungs. Passing somehow through the window, I floated to the ground in the silence of the night, everything being quite dark. Throughout this experience there was a lack of higher reflection and obedience. And instead of continuing, it quickly lapsed, and I returned to the physical body in an entirely normal way.
