Experience of aestral bodies
One winter, I was in Mumbai. My stay was at a Sanatorium at Valkeshwar in Mumbai. The place of sanatorium was very attractive, as the sea was visible from the window. On the first day of my stay there, a strange experience took place.
It was nighttime when I was performing my regular prayers. Dim light from the window was coming into the room. When my eyes opened, I saw an unknown woman before me. Her age must have been around 30-35 years. Her face was fair. She looked and calm and composed. She wore a pink sari.
At first I felt strange. I was surprised, as I had not seen her before. At that moment the woman raised her hand and said, “The bed on which you are sitting is mine.“
I could not follow what she said. She further clarified “This is my bed. Two-years back I died on this bed during my delivery. I love this bed and this room too. I used to see my face in the opposite mirror all the time. I had a tragic death. After my death I am staying here.”
I asked: "What do you do here?”
She stated, "If someone comes here, I make them ill. That satisfies me.“
"To make someone ill makes you satisfied?”
“Yes. But believe me, I will make others sick but not you.”
I asked, "Do you like this kind of life?”
"Initially I did not like it but now I am accustomed to it.”
"Do you possess any specific power?”
"Not much. I can move around, within my capacity, at will. I can foresee events and I can also perform some extraordinary tasks. I am not fully satisfied with this life but I enjoy it somehow. I knew that you were coming here, that’s why I appeared for your darshan. Now I shall go.” With that she disappeared in the surrounding atmosphere the same way she appeared.
The next morning when I inquired, I came to know that a woman had died two years back during delivery at the same place. It was also a known fact that lot of people fell sick at the sanatorium.
Many people have similar experiences of astral bodies. Even I have come across many such incidents in my life. It establishes the fact that such things are in existence on this earth. Many people strive to have a relationships or contact with such souls. I would advise that rather than striving for a relationship with such souls, one should concentrate oneself on having contact with the Almighty Lord from where all power originates.
