Harold E's Experience

Experience description:   

In1944 at fort belvoir during night training, our group came to a gully. I recognized a potential for injury so chose an adjacent spot of lesser slope.   then had the OBE, slipped, my foot caught on a root, my body kept going and my ankle broke.

 At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?         Uncertain      I now believe that had the event not happened resulting in a broken ankle and subsequent hospitalization, i would have died in action

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?           I was alert and careful

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   only in the sense that i knew it was going to happen and tried unsuccessfully to prevent it

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes     I was above my body looking down upon myself groveling in the mud

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            wonderment

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Uncertain            immediately after the obe, I was experiencing the pain normal to a fracture

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?   Yes     My logical mind recognized that I could not be in the place from which I was viewing my body

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes     Shortly after the OBE and to this day I have believed that my life was spared, that except for the ankle hospitalization I would have been killed in the war

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       No particular changes commenced then

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Uncertain     

Have you shared this experience with others?         Yes    

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        Partly because of the OBE and subsequent events in my life absolutely completely believe in the axiom that whatever goes around comes around
