Hi all. I am going to inject my 2 cents worth about obe's from my own first hand experiences with them.
OP, I am in no way bashing you or your info. Please understand that. I am just saying from my own experience that I have found that I cannot induce an
obe by watching a video or listening to music, vibration or the likes. What I found was the minute I tried to "use" something to induce an obe, I
found myself concentrating on the subject matter and not the experience. If you are focused on something other than the experience and how it feels, I
can assure you that you will most likely not experience an obe. Could happen, but I haven't experienced it that way.
20 odd years ago, I got very interested in the subject of obe's, astral projection, etc., and studied the subject heavily. I had some pretty
enlightening experiences and some pretty good "buzzing" sensations in my body (not drug induced) but I never "left my body" in that sense. I gave
up and shelved all the books, tapes and videos and just forgot about it. 5 years later, I am driving up the road from Florida to Ga. and my mind was
drifting about various thoughts. Next thing I know, Whammmm....I, and I use that word cautiously, am sitting in the passenger seat "watching" myself
driving. I was cognizant of everything that was going on and it felt about the same way it would feel if you were watching a movie about someone
driving, viewed from the passengers perspective. The one thing I did notice was the calming affect it had on me. When I realized what was going on,
Whammmm..I felt a sensation of fear sweep over me and ..Whammm... I am back in the drivers seat. Today I know what that fear was but it would take
pages to describe it. However, once I got back into my "body" my mind was going nuts!!! I thought, "WTF just happened"?
I didn't ever mention this episode to anyone...I'm sure most of you can figure out why...and it was uppermost in my mind for the next few weeks. I
tried to induce it a few times and recreate the same experience but could never make it happen. It seemed like the harder I tried to do it, the more
fleeting it became. I gave up on it and went about life as usual and then about the time I had totally put it aside, Whammmm...it happened again while
sitting on the couch reading a book about "cancer in canines". I have no idea why this induced an obe but as far as I can figure, my mind was just
so relaxed about the subject that it let the info come thru unresisted.
The first time I was scared beyond belief, this time I was curious and tried to just relax into the feeling and I noticed I wasn't scared. It was
rather soothing once I "just let it happen". It really opened up my mind, but most importantly, it opened up my "feeling" centers. I started
noticing that whenever I felt happy and at ease and very "joyful" about something, I could feel myself kinda start "floating" away from the
physical body. Anytime I became agitated or mad about something, I would come "slamming" back into my body and not only feel "grounded", but I
would feel as if my feet were stuck in clay and my movements took great effort.
Over time, I noticed that I was having more and more of the obe's during sleep, during the day and alot of times when I least expected them to
happen. (Imagine for a moment sitting having a conversation with someone and the next thing you know, Poooof...you are watching the conversation from
Anyway, I have become very comfortable with them and realize they are not bad or even abnormal for that matter. Everyone does it at sometime and just
doesn't realize it.
I like to have a glass of wine every now and then and have found that alcohol doesn't really seem to affect it one way or another. It has made it
easier a time or 2 but that was probably not the wine as much as it was my self being more relaxed.
My most amazing day so far was one Saturday when we had company over and I had 12 obe's in one day. It was fun.
You have to "feel".
