I can almost OBE at will. When i first started practicing i used to get the head shift you seem to be describing. Have you ever had an OBE?
The reason I ask is because the head shift is actually your consciousness popping out of your body, however fear or too much excitement will suck you right back in. Stay calm in this situation and allow your consciousness to freely separate from your physical body. Enough practice and you will notice the quick head shift turns into a full OBE.
Lately I've been trying to OBE while awake. The head shift is the furthest I have made it so far. Apparently there are people that can OBE while awake at will. This is a very high level of spirituality to attain and takes lots of meditation to achieve.

I'm not quite sure what you're talking about when you say shift, but I've experienced something I can only account as 'rubber banding'. I've had my consciousness in a room, I've looked back to see myself, as soon as I realize what's going on, it's like I snap back into my body and awake in startled state from the snapping back. When I do have an OBE like that, rarely do I ever find myself actually able to leave the room where my body is sleeping.

That shifting sensation is normal, and I find that it occurs right before you begin to feel the vibrating sensations.
As others have mentioned, there is also always a tearing or ripping sensation accompanied by lots of noise.
Sometimes the feeling of leaving the body can be nauseating.
As you mentioned, I too, have noticed that I can get to that shifting sensation faster than I used to.
