Hello Friends:

Can Out of Body Expiriences be trigered by
Stress or by emotionaly charged situations.
Like divorce,New job or new suroundings or
even depresion? A death in the family?
Is OOBE similar or can be optened by Meditation alone?

emotionaly charged situations

I suppose a sudden burst of Emotion (energy in motion) could produce an OOBE...I would think you would need to direct the energy for that purpose though. Perhaps after a dramatic event the subconscious would produce the emotions to trigger an OOBE as a sort of defense mechanism? Both my mother and my grandfather had an epileptic seizure which triggered an OOBE.

The consensus says you need to achieve the phenomena known as mind awake, body asleep to intentionally practice OOBE.

Yes deffinitly.The condition of how we feel is definatly a trigger.sudden shock and trauma are what cause people s staet of mind to alter.As our well versed brains of logic start to unwind we start to not focus so much and lose control of our perception.

Actually, i've read that very strong emotions, such as pain, pleasure, etc, may lead to an OOBE.

I've read about many soldiers during WWII that, after being badly wounded (for example by grenades), had OOBE.
Also, OOBEs could happend (especially for women) when having an extremely intense sexual pleasure...

Some say this

An oobe is caused by a change in the perception of ones reality.There can be many causes of this.Trauma such as seeing a loved one die or extreme pain or pleasure can alter the state of ones mind.Remember that every ones head is in a different space and time.Experiencing different events that can have an effect on how one thinks and percieves information.

If one is to study their ownself and work on how they look at the world they live in in regards to the world they imagine,you can strengthen or loosen so to speak your hold on this reality.Keep in mind that we take all this information in through our eyes and senses on our skin(well all the senses)yet the brain can still visualize whole realms within the mind.

Have you ever seen something weird like someone who is awake while they are asleep.Ive heard and seen some pretty weird things happen while people were sleeping as im sure you all have too!

A few months ago, while I was visiting my fiance in hospital, where she was still rehabbing from a severe brain injury, she looked at me with wide eyes, and said "See the ducks in the park.", i said when you get better, we can do that, she shook her head, wide eyes, trying to make her point, "see the ducks in the park." she said it at least three times, and then dropped it. I replied the same way as the first each time, but knew I was missing something. This was at a time when 3 word sentences were rare for her. the norm was one word. Pudding, More, Hi, etc. I went online after I got home about four hours later and checked out the posts at a webgroup that I had requested prayers for her from, and had been blessed to receive many. A woman who I had been in contact with from Portland Oregon (250 miles south of here), had a message for me. "K., did E. mention seeing the ducks in the park, cuz she really enjoyed it?" This friend wrote that to me that on her lunch break when she went across the street to the park and fed the ducks, my fiancees spirit visited her and enjoyed the visit. I wouldn't have believed that, except for the fact that she did mention it, three times. I replied to her question. 'yes, she did.'

My friend I hope that she gets better.I know if my loved one were to go throught that that I would be very down and sad.My heart in all its manners goes out to you and yours and hope that all goes well.

Thank you for the endearing post and insight on this great subject!

I have had 22 months to get used to it now, so it is not as emotionally intense now, but yes, it was very strong for a long time. I only kept it together at some points because of the support of people like you, no lie. They were my refuges. The day to day reality of it was overwhelming, and it is still considerable today, but nowhere near the same as before.
They say no pain no gain, and I think there is some truth to that. I have learned a lot, and had alot of my beliefs confirmed for me as well. The most ironic thing about her OOBE is that she doesn't remember it, of course, her memory is not great now, and she is an atheist, so she is pretty suspicious of it too..... that just figures doesn't it.

Hello Frinds:

There is two (02) times I had what I think was a O.O.B.E.
One was when I just got separeted for the inpending divorse
from wife number two (02). I had to move out and I was living
with others room mates I needed to get out of the house I needed to
get relife from the stress. I could go any were I think it was because
I had no car or some thing like that. I remember I was laying on my bed
and all of the sudden I could see myself like if some one were looking
at me from the roof looking down. I could see myself liying on my bed.

The other time I was in a hospital in florida were they gave me the rong
medication and among other things I went into coma I remember seen myself in the hospital in the ICU me looking from the room door ,my mother
(my parents came from Puerto Rico) two nurses and a doctor looking at me
in the bed.!!
