Good question! We think alike. I haven't had an OBE for a while now, but I wanted to test out the "reality" of all this.
Everynight now I put two random playing cards, and put them face up somewhere in my room where I can't see from my bed. If I OBE I go check the cards
out, and then I will be able to verify after waking up, I'm hoping that this will work. ( I put them face up, because I just don't understand why
you would put them face down, it would be way easier to simply look at it in OBE, without having to pick it up, turn it around and look at the card,
there's no reason for that, and I don't even know if in OBE that it's possible to actually read what's on the hidden side anyway, so put it out
of view from where you sleep, and when in OBE simply walk/float up to it and look at it, easy)
I am aware that reading things in OBE can be hard because sometimes text and numbers you try to read keeps changing, you see a 7 but then it's an 8,
then back to a 7 etc. I'm not sure why, I think it's because your mind can influence a lot more things in OBE than in the physical state, in OBE
your mind is very powerful, mere thoughts can influence your surroundings. So I'm going to have to try and "see" the cards and not "predict"
before looking, because that might affect what I see.
Anyway, there have been things I do remember that can verify a little of the reality. I can't remember much right now, but here's a couple.
1. A few times I would have an unexpected OBE, not aware of the time and the weather outside. My last OBE I was outside my house, it was daylight and
it was raining, rain drops on the metal fence, and on the doors and floors, I then started to fly away, and lost focus. When I woke up I thought it
was still night, but I realised it was actually daylight, I thought to myself,"wow it's daylight just like my OBE, I thought it was still night"
but then I thought "oh but I don't think it's raining" but I looked outside and to my suprise it was raining.
2. A couple of times when I OBE I saw someone like my brother, and when I wake up I would see that they were wearing the same clothing as in my
But the card experiment is my ultimate goal, imagine having that 100% proof to yourself, it would be life changing!
