Well I am excited to say I have made some progress with my OBE attempts. I am only really able to try when I'm going to bed since I have kids and
work strange hours. The first two nights (or mornings) I didn't really get anything.
Lots of excitement but disappointed when I could barely relax myself. I got tired after 20 minutes or so and just rolled to my side and went to
I was able to calm myself more this time and relax my body more and do it faster. This was as far as I could get though. I spent a little more time
than the first night but again got tired and decided to give up and go to sleep.
I tried to Lucid Dream also when I decided to go to sleep but no luck their either.
I was able to relax noticably faster last night. I felt myself deepening slightly two times but was distracted by the spouse or the baby. A third time
I felt myself deepening. I was telling myself mind awake, body asleep. I felt that I had some control and made my body slip into sleep. I started
feeling the "vibrations." It reminded me more of electricity going through my body. The feeling was intensifying. I felt like I was getting really
deep. I also felt quite a bit of pressure in my head at this time. It was black and I could see a shape before my eyes. I was seeing the kind of
"fireworks" that you see when you close your eyes and rub them, it was deeper though and more vivid.
Something caught my attention for a split second before I redirected my focus back to my OBE attempt. When I got distracted I realized I was in the
early stages of the vibrations. When I shifted my focus back I had some control and I held myself in that state as long as I could but I slowly faded
back to reality.
I am very happy to be making progress. I was feeling somewhat frustrated after the first two pathetic nights.
I picked a card out of a shuffled deck of cards and placed it on my bookcase. When I finally do OBE I will use the card to do a reality check to
confirm it is more than a dream.
