ok, firstly i have to say to RG that what you explained of what happened to you is amazing, gives me that spark of life that there is something more
to this world than what it seems. i personally have had two OOBE's, well.. one partial when i knew it happened, and another where it just hit me
outta no where. i think i've explained my previous experiences before in a thread somewhere, but i will again, perhaps to show people what step i
my first, the one that got me into it happened about two years ago. i already was a pretty sound spiritual person, believed that anything is possible
(key factor for OOBE). and at this time in my life, i guess i was your average teenager looking for escape, away from school, parents, and all the #ty
expectations we go through. but anyways, i got home one day and just collapsed on my bed. it was at this time that i sunk into a rapturous state of
happiness that i've never felt before, ever, like i was truely dosed in love. it was amazing, i've never felt anything like that ever, even to this
date. i started to think about a special someone who i really really cared about, my longing to be with her, and then thats when i noticed that i was
on my way before i knew it. i was over my house, rising into the air, past the trees. everything was soo vibrant in colour, the sun was so refreshing.
of course when i fully realised what was happening, i sorta snapped out of it and was back on my bed.
the second one happened after about a few months of me being on ATS, i'd keep reading all the interesting information that got me really pyshced up.
then one night after work, after being on ATS, i decided to do it, i stated it mentally and verbally before i layed into bed. that's when i started
to apply the vipassana meditation technique i learned at a 10 day retreat when i was 16 (check it out if you can, its amazing). the whole session took
about one and a half hours. so about 45mins through the numbness kicked it. i was still quite awake and aware. except that at this point you feel as
if you lose definition, in the material sense, in other words, your foot is no different than your hand. just to double check, and to give assurance
to any scepticism, i tried slowly moving my mouth, and a finger or two, which i did with ease, though slowly, to keep myself at that vibration. it was
then that i noticed that any physical movement can bring you out of it, depending on the speed of movement, which you have to replace with time and
patience. at this point i was kinda curious of what the rest of my body was upto, so i somehow was able to veiw the lower part of my torso and feet
without lifting my head or opening my eyes at all. my entire body was glowing white, and everything around me was black. so it was then that i figured
that something surely was going on. though the only problem there was that i didnt exactly know what to do next, so i was just boyant, floating in my
body loosly for a while. i then decided that i'd give it a break and quite easily moved towards getting a drink of water, and then i just fell
so those are the main two events of OOBE in my life so far. it hasn't been until the recent that i've started to attempt it again, but haven't
exactly been able to get to the stages i had before. i'll either fall asleep, or like in one afternoon, just when i go numb, a bug bites me, damn
that hurt. maybe it was a sign or something. i dunno. then last night, it was the first time i sensed what you could call a somewhat evil unpleasant
presence. this was during the state where i was asking for assistance from any other adept beings. i felt that it was hard to concentrate on loving
thoughts, and whenever i briefly opened my eyes, black swirls were moving in the dark and i could catch the face of an unpleasant character every now
and then above my head. the only way i could repel it was to drop the connection and just go to sleep.
now i tend to think that im a fairly advanced spiritual person when it comes to philosophising and whatnot, but the OOBE realm has really been an
interesting challenge for me. something that i find purpose in, as my material life seems to be pretty confusing right now. so if anyone, you've
heard my story. if you could assist or know anyone who could, U2U me or something.
wow, that was a lot of typing... til later. feel free to ask me anything, if anyone is confused or curious. chow.
