Examples of spiritual training
To experience OBE:
Focus on a body part. Focus on another body part. And focus on a third body part. Focus on something outside of your body. And another thing outside
of your body. And another thing. Switch back and forth between focussing on 3 body parts for a few moments and 3 things outside your body (eyes
closed). Do this back-and-forth shifting for 15 to 60 minutes or until you fall asleep. It eventually leads to the awareness of the energy body
leaving the body (which it does anyway every night, we just dont notice it often)
To experience Lucid Dreaming:
Become more aware of your dreams (by for example writing them down), by which you will eventually become more aware within your dreams.
To succeed in something:
Willfully write, talk, behave, feel and act as if you have already achieved it for a few days. Then let go of the issue, release any expectation or
pressure of it.
To achieve clarity and inner peace:
Go into silence for 15 minutes. Dont want, need, do, should, could, would anything, just sit, breathe, observe, BE, until any impatience has passed.
To kick-start inner guidance:
Label feeling bad as a helpful indicator of some path of action or thought being inappropriate and label feeling good as an indicator of some path of
action or thought being appropriate. So rather than supressing bad emotions, use them as navigation.
To strengthen willpower and self-determinism:
Practice deliberately shifting attention/concentration away from expectations, society-pressures, time-pressure, other peoples chatter,
media-fear-induction, and to more peaceful and beautiful things.
To strengthen spirit:
Engage in dancing, story-telling, singing, music, laughing, painting, writing or whatever it is that is truly self-expressive.
To experience ecstasy:
