Great thread! My only OBE was in Jan this year and was unintentional but not entirely a surprise. My friend that initiated me with my first insight/knowledge of the astral realm was a yoga instructor so I learned early on in my attempts that it helps tremendously to open/clear your chakra/energy centers. SO the night of my OBE I was doing some guided chakra clearing meditation vids on You Tube but not with the intention of going OBE, just to get my energy flowing. During this I saw something I can't explain, I looked up away from the monitor at the wall and in the space between where I was sitting and the wall a bright white dot of light like a laser point manifested in thin air. It was beautiful and really felt like a wink from another dimension telling me that I was on the right track. From then on I felt a presence in the room guiding me. I suddenly got the idea to go turn the bathtub into a sensory deprivation chamber. I filled it up and got in and meditated underwater for maybe 30 minutes. When I got out of the tub I could almost see the dimensions bleeding together, a little like an acid trip but I was completely sober/lucid. The energy in the room was thick like I could reach out and touch it. At this point it was like 2 or 3 in the morning and as i made my way to bed I knew what was going to happen and that this was why I had done all this. It was like a little voice in my head telling me, you're gonna go OBE. So I got in bed and went to sleep without thinking about it anymore. My dream became lucid right away, I was walking through an open field on a cloudy night, looking up at the clouds which were absolutely beautiful tinged deep purple. Shortly after arriving in this field I began to float off the ground. I was floating a few feet off the ground when I felt hands on my back lifting me up, a sensation so real it was like nothing I'd ever experienced in a lucid dream, I would relate it more to the feeling of hands or pressure during sleep paralysis. Then a hand grabbed my crotch, holding me down while the hands on my back lifted me up and yanked me out of my body and I was suddenly aware of leaving my body although i didn't look back and see it, I just looked up as the hands lifted me further into the sky. I felt the most peace and serenity I have ever experienced, it was truly the most bizarre, wonderful, amazing thing, I can only imagine that this is what dying feels like. So I'm being lifted into the sky and seeing what I think are stars. It suddenly becomes more clear that these lights are much closer and in triangle formation. Then out of nowhere I see the flash of a symbol of a man, the most basic symbol of man like the one on public restrooms, but it was a laser light outline, drawn with the same kind of point of light that appeared to me while I was meditating earlier. And then it was over I was back in my body. Seven months later I feel like I'm finally ready to give it another shot.

So I'm completely fascinated that other people can contact you astrally and pull you out, because I believe I was pulled out by some higher-vibrational multi-dimensional beings, that's why I had to raise my vibrations in the water before they could contact me. There were at least 3 pairs of hands I felt on my astral body as it was removed from my shell.

What do you guys think?

Be safe and be smart. Happy travels.

Welcome to the thread!

I think the white light you 1st saw was one of your guides, or A guide.... Beings LOOK like a ball of white light when they are not in a body.......

Quite the experience! W@W!
can/would you link up the Utube videos you used that brought on this experience? I am sure others would also like to try this......

Remembering the 'feeling' of the hands on my back pulling me out is something I will NEVER forget....its entirely a physical feeling and in no way 'imagined' as some who have never experienced this insist

I just had my first one within the past couple hours!!! Im not sure if it would be considered an AP, an OOBE, or a lucid dream. I had a long weekend, and completely messed up my sleep schedule. I fell asleep Sunday from 5 or 6PM until 11pm, stayed up all night until 10AM, and fell asleep until about 2PM Monday afternoon. I was awoken around 2 after I had a nightmare, where people were fighting me, and as I reached out for a police officer that appeared, I woke up. So i stayed up for a couple hours, but was still sleepy, so I laid down for a nap. About 10 minutes after I felll asleep, my girlfriend came home from work and woke me up for about 20 mins then left again....

After she left, i started to feel my consciousness seperating. I wasnt really meditating on having an AP, as I have been doing I wasnt visualizing or listening to hemi-sync, but I started feeling that weird feeling of my mind "oozing" and becoming something bigger.

All of a sudden, I was in my bedroom, and everything was gray (Im assuming "exit blindness", but I was floating around and bouncing off walls. I never heard the loud pops or cracking noises, and felt no vibrations, but I was awake, lucid and in control. I was doing somersaults off the walls and things, just amazed at how I was "awake". I thought to myself "I want to fly", and suddenly, I was flying. I made a conscious effort to open my eyes, and I was suddenly looking down at thin clouds. I looked up and saw stars. I decided to make myself fly, and was tickled when I was could completely control my speed and angle of attack. As I was flying, I literally thought "I cant wait to go post I had success on River Goddess' topic!!!!"

I thought "I want to go the casino!", speaking of the Christchurch casino in New Zealand, which I know fairly intimately from my travels there. I visualized the spiral staircases there, but suddenly I was back in my body and everything was gray again. I felt someone in my room, and I assumed my girlfriend was home again, so I made myself "wake up", but my body was paralyzed. I got a little scared for a second, then I took a few deep breaths, and all of a sudden I was talking to my girlfriend, telling her how cool it was....and then I snapped awake, and I was in bed by myself, so I had dreamed the second "girlfriend intrusion" lol

It was an amazing experience, but Im not sure if it was considered AP or just a lucid dream. Whatever it was, when it was happening, I was aware, relatively in control, and felt euphoric.

I laughed aloud at the idea that while this was happening to you, this thread actually came to your mind....AMAZING what this thread really is....glad to have you posting and joining us!

I wish I was in New Zealand...........its VERY HOT in Utah right now.

Last night I was dreaming away...and thought to remember that I was only boom I become lucid......and in my lucid state I found the people I was with and things we were doing to be utterly BORING...and just decided to fly away and freak them all out.
So arms up 'superman style' I launch myself and head up into swirling brown clouds......I think to try and go see the Great Pyramid and was flying along and realized I was just moving in these swirling brown clouds and got to thinking how I NEVER get to the Pyramid, and right at that juncture I became fully awake...
.....self fulfilling prophecy that I NEVER get TO GO to the Pyramid.

I fell back to sleep but not lucid........when I got up today I hemmed & hawed about posting this or not, and figured it was ALL relative, so it here it is.

I consider this a failed attempt........but its such a weird feeling when one 'Becomes' lucid.......I bet that is very much the same experience when we die. That everything you were SO FOCUSED ON, just suddenly becomes irrelevant and it no longer matters much. It matters so little, that in fact you can chuckle at your 'pre lucid' very child like in its unawareness.

Sadly...when I 'go lucid' I become so utterly aware that I always end up coming fully is HARD for me to remain lucid and still remain 'in' the dream.

Does anyone else have this problem?

How did you learn to 'remain in the dream'??

I have been having this problem too.
Another problem is.. i become aware of the dream, i know i'm dreaming, but i dont become fully aware, it's as if the progress bar is 95% complete but it doesn't wan't to finish.

The next day I realise that I was close to a lucid dream (I recall the dream) and I get disapointed because it doesnt happen
If anyone can help, let me know (send me a pm please, because this topic is 125 pages long and MASSIVE.

I've spent a lot of time reading, trying, doing whatever I thought I could to get a OBE and/or any other "paranormal" things to happen. So far, still no luck.
What I did find, is something called "Binaural beats".
Does anyone here know more about it ? One time I tried it, and after about 15/20 minutes I started to feel strange. Like my body was going into stand-by mode, I couldn't move, everything started to tingle, and I just felt really, ehm.. light ?
Eventually something happened which caught me a bit off-guard: in the blackness (I had my eyes closed obviously) I saw what looked like a painting. Bright sun, a nice big road, some buildings, and well, the sky was purple. Yes, really.

Either way, as I looked at this "painting", it slowly came closer. Untill at one point I felt I was being sucked in! This really freaked me out, I was wide awake, and couldn't sleep for hours. Right after this happened I knew I shouldn't have been scared, as this was probably a good thing. But ok..

I've been trying to get the same effect, but I just can't seem to do it.. I would get a weird feeling at my feet and legs, but nothing more..
What should (or shouldn't) I do now ?

posted on Jul, 31 2010 @ 03:23 PM

I would check out Brainwave Generator, it's a simple binaural beats program with presets and extra ones to download. The program itself is free but to download user submitted presets I think you need to buy it. It's well worth it, though. I have presets for just about any state of mind I would want to be in.

So you say that these binaural beats work for you ? Anyway, I will take a peek at that program, and see what I can get out of it. Thanks, man.

Some of the presets do wonders for me, while others I've downloaded aren't that great. I recommend the following ones:
Astral Projection 6.3 Hz
Boxed Nirvana I (great for lucid dreams if nothing else, I've had 4 in a row so far falling asleep to this one)
Chakra Stimulation and Balance v2.1 by Faded (works every time for me)
Pineal (3rd eye) Stimulation
Psychic Experiment
Studying Aid
The edge of the 7th consciousness
Trip into Time
a few more for relaxing you, although I don't use them much

As a disclaimer, let me say that these are the presets that have worked for ME, and everyone's brains work differently. Good luck with your journey!

So I have been reading quite a bit about AP/OOB but have never really been able to get far into the meditation thing myself. However, I do have a story that might be interesting for some of you here.

A few weeks ago I went to sleep and had a very vivid dream. It was not really a lucid dream however I was controlling it in a way (confusing I know). In this dream I was forcing myself to go to sleep (again) and have whatever dream I wanted for a short time, before waking up while still in the dream. For example, I would tell myself to dream about flying, then I would fall asleep (inside the dream) and begin to fly, only to wake up a short time later still in the dream. I did this a few times with various things that I wanted to do, before finally something happened and I woke up for real.

After waking, I realized that I would not move my body at all (sleep-paralysis) and I was laying face down. I also had a very strange sensation that I was floating back and forth in the confines of my own body. I freaked out a little but thought to myself that I should control my emotions because I knew exactly what was happening.

So I settled down a bit and decided to see if I could actually leave my body. It is hard to describe because what I was feeling, wasn't my actual body. So I 'pulled upwards' in a way, and felt myself actually begin to separate from my body. Doing this caused a whole new rush of fear and emotion to come forward which in turn snapped me out of the paralysis and there I was normal as could be wondering what the heck just happened.

Sorry if this was a bit hard to follow, I have never really tried to describe anything like it before. Since then I haven't had anything happen as I suppose this was just one of those random instances. I really wish it would happen again so I could better control my emotions and perhaps actually remember the OBE next time.

Congratulation to you. I'm glad you finally discover it. I've read somewhere it's has to do with the 3rd eyes during meditation. Not sure where I read it. It's been quite sometime. However, your experience is quite similar to mine 20 years ago. Floating, Being pulled by unknown force, No sound, communication through thought ... Except that I wasn't meditating at all. I was praying.

Can you explain the difference to me between meditating and praying?

Well, for me, Praying require faith. Meditation does not. You can read further here:

The way I see it, If prayer is a way of "talking" to God. Then Meditation would be a way of "listening" to God. Hope that helps.(:

I tried this once as a teenager after a lot of reading. I felt 'sucked' down through the bed and it scared the heck out of me which jolted me out of it. Never again.

posted on Aug, 21 2010 @ 01:45 PM
This topic has been a very informative read, although I have been attempting to experience an Oobe for years, and have not came close once. This thread has been a great inspiration for me to continue my attempts.

hello i made a thread about my problem but was wondering if would be ok to post it in this thread too.

i posted and kept up with this thread along time ago and and just came back to check up ats the other day. ( missed this place lol)

my problem:
its been a long time since Ive posted something on this site.
i come back to ask for help for someone to understand and give clues to why im not doing this anymore.

i used to be able to astral project. only about 2 years ago was the last time i have done it. Ive watched myself sleep to floating around my property to seeing galaxies and stars up close with my own eyes. to experience complete freedom and not be restricted to things that i was told in school would always confine me like gravity or matter (walls ect). i have tried not to think about what i used to be able to do because it is too depressing. to not experience it again is too much sadness for me to take sometimes. i sit here and ask you why? does anyone know why its gone from me?

Ive tried so many ideas to help, using crystals and even hemi sync. nothing works.

i can get to sleep paralysis VERY easily but leaving the body is the problem. i cant leave my body anymore and its so frustrating now because it was so simple before. i don't know what to do.

i would do anything to do it again.


thank you

Probably lack of concentration and probably your mind are pushing yourself. Try find more quiet places.
