Interesting thread you have here, it reminds me of an experience I had about 15 years ago that I always felt was something like an OOBE?
As I was resting in my bedroom, I was at that very relaxed state (between sleep and being awake) and saw four walls around me, like in my room, but they looked like outside walls (like a bright sunny day outside) and there was no ceiling. Above looked like blue sky filled with rows of hieroglyphic images. I remember feeling in awe at the sight... as if being given a gift. (Not sure if that relates to the following experience, but since it happened 'right' before the OOBE I thought I'd mention it).
I then felt myself moving upwards... it was a feeling of slight resistance followed by free flow. (The feeling reminded me of those older cupboards, where the door has a metal prong and the cupboard has the two white plastic balls that the prong slips into after slight resistance at first). And I clearly had the sense of leaving my body. I slowly moved into a standing type position.It was my first time experiencing this and I was a little frightened, however I did feel that I could do what I wanted at will. I felt a little uneasy, as if my body would have problems if I didn't return soon, so after a few seconds I decided I wanted to go back, and with that simple thought, I did. Same resistance upon returning. I braved myself to open my eyes while returning and actually saw myself moving downward and double vision upon slipping back in... pretty weird.
I didn't move away from my body because I chose not to at the time, and I chose to keep my eyes closed. (Can your eyes be shut in an OOBE?)
My overall feeling was that I was given a gift... by who or what, I have no idea. But I was very excited and appreciative of the experience. I felt very relaxed for the longest time afterwards throughout the day. Unfortunately, I never had the experience again... kinda bummed. I miss that 'gift'.
Does anyone out there want to learn to have a conscious awareness of the difference of the voice of the mind and the voice of the soul?
