So much advice here, and all I can contribute is that whatever you read, it'll still be different for you, although there are common factors.
The ONE time I've managed a temporary OBE (which turned into some insane Inception-esque Lucid Dream) I was playing Battlefield 3 (the plane
mission), and the sky going past put me into one of those odd trances. Feeling rather tired anyway, thought I'd hit the bed for half hour or so.
Vaguely remember my body feeling weird, and then what I thought would be 'crawling' off my bed, so that my legs were still raised up and my face and
body were resting on the floor. (Looking back I realised it was more of a spin - yay 360 degree motion!). Then I felt myself being sucked up into the
air, and I saw the earth get smaller and smaller below me, and my consciousness came to me.
I realised I wanted to visit my old Neighbourhood and house, and as I did I saw my neighbours coming out of their house. Absolutely no idea if they
did or not, but I can remember it. Odd thing though - I remember seeing a red Polo (car) outside their house, and when I went back fairly recently,
they had that car. Strange, seeing how they didn't have it before.
After that everything got really weird and I don't want to go into my lucid dream state.
Reading a couple of sorrowful comments above and haven't quite got the jist of who's passed away, but it seems like they were a respected member of
this thread (and / or forum - will be reading back later, but 136 pages is a lot to go through!) - so RIP, and best wishes from a new member.
Back on topic though, if anyone fancies 'hoisting' me out at any point, I would be much obliged! Thoroughly enjoyed the last one, and this thread
has rekindled the passion I used to have for it!
