Hi again folks, the title of this thread may seem a little odd, but there's one thing i've noticed about OOBE and wanted to share it with you.
As others may already know, i'm trying to study this subject in order to reach a complete OOBE, so i'm trying some "experiments", to understand
the "easiest" way to achieve it.
And i think that laying in certain positions, instead of others, may be helpful: so far i haven't yet managed to detach from my body, but several
times i've managed to see "outside" my eyes (my point of view was one or two inches in front of my eyes, and i knew they were closed) which
is, as far as i know, the beginning of a possible OOBE.
Now, what have i noticed? When i lay comfortable, in my bed, i fall asleep, and usually sleep till the next morning; it's very unlikely for me to
"detach" my point of view, even if i repeat mantras or sentences before falling asleep.
BUT if i find myself in an uncomfortable position, i am more likely to detach my POV.
It just happened a couple of days ago: it was late afternoon, in an hour i had to go out, still i was a bit tired, so i decided to lay down on my sofa
and have a little rest. I dunno how to explain my position, we could say i was lying on my left side, with my left forearm and hand holding my head,
next to my neck. In a nutshell, after a while, in that position my left arm started to give me that unpleasant "tingling", typical of when blood
doesn't flow properly. I fell asleep, and in more or less 40 minutes my POV detached a couple of times.
Almost the same thing happened several times some years ago, when coming back from school i went to my granparents for luch and some hours in the
afternoon. Sometimes i fell asleep in a big chair they had (and still have, so i could do some more experiments): it wasn't really comfortable, so i
often found that my POV was in front on my eyes, and i always knew that i was sleeping... or at least, that my body was... and i also
knew that i wasn't dreaming. At that time, unluckly, i didn't know anything about OOBE.
Well, thinking of these episodes, and of what happened a couple of days ago, i've come up with a theory: maybe an uncomfortable position may "help"
us to keep our mind awake, thus helping us to obtain an OOBE.
