think it may be a little off topic here since this thread seems to be more about the OBE experience itself. (Out of Body Experience experience?
Okay… how redundant is that?)
Since it is an important factor in everything, including what this topic is about, I'm sure it would be usefull information.
Noticing and removing barrieres is something everyone does throughout their life. Still most people do it intuitively and won't grow fast while
others who benefit from this kind of growth are more conciously active with it. Thus they grow faster. It really depends where your personal interests
and priorities are.
Well I'm a bit sleepy since I just got up, but will try to explain it as coherent as possible.
First of all there is no universal Right or Wrong
(made it a link to a more
comprehensive discussion with me as Sabazel there). People create their own dogma's, dualities and thus their own prisons. Things just are untill the
individual that views an event or feeling will judge it by their own personal belief/moral system. When people interact with someone they will, from
time to time, get annoyed by the behaviour of the other person. Most people will blame the other individual for being annoying. Actually you should
look within yourself to understand WHY you experience the other individual as being annoying. You can also take this into another direction where
people will react fiercely towards someone when the other individual didn't do anything. That individual placed their finger on your own sore spot
that you hidden from your conciousness.
In both, and all cases, you need to look within yourself. Why do you react fiercely as if the other person is wrong? What is it that you are hiding
from yourself and can't accept that it is there? You can't solve your behaviour, that you're not comfortable with, if you don't even acknowledge
something you feel uncomfortable with...and thus is wrong for you.
It is pure psychology and is very confrontational. That is why most people rather not look within themselves but rather blame others for their own
incompetencies or look for others to give hope or re-affirmation. People in general only look for quick fixes that deal with symptoms and ignore the
This is also why meditation doesn't work for most. People degraded it to a mere relaxational tool that gives people a temporal peace of mind. If you
truly meditate you will spend more then mere 30-60 minutes a day in this state. You will stay as long as possible and analyse the thoughts that come
by. Find out where they come from, on what beliefs they are based, why you feel uneasy with certain situations and personality traits/reactions. Then
you will be confronted with yourself and can deal with the problems. You can understand why your parents neglected you which caused your emotional
imbalance since you can now look at that old situation through more mature eyes then when you were a child. You will simply re-judge all events and
understand them, find peace with them and then let it go. With each aspect of yourself you deal with and are able to let go, the lesser barrieres that
remain. The lesser thoughts that will distract you from your meditation and future excercises to get an OBE for excample. And eventually you will get
that constant state of relaxation and peace of mind.
Personally I've used the Vipassana meditation to learn the basics. Then I moved on to the qabalistic Tree of Life where I studied the Sephira en
Qlipoth which are both the light and dark side of each sphere in the Tree. In this context it would mean that the Light side are the aspect that you
feel comfortable and at ease with. The dark/shadow side is that which you push away and don't accept and those aspects of yourself will cause you to
live life full of distractions, always having the be on the look out in case that aspect will rear its ugly head around the corner catching you of
guard causing for that emotional/aggressive outburst again. Each sphere on the Tree symbolised specific aspects to work on. By studying,
understanding, meditating and pathworking on that specific for 3-5 months caused me to understand and learnd and grow on a more personal level as
well. There are 10 spheres so you can calculate how long it would take
I personally am only at the 5th-6th sphere and already am capable to do a
lot of things at this stage.
The first step one should take is at least acknowlidging and accepting the fact that the aspects you don't feel comfortable with are troublesome to
you. Doing so will move it from the dark into a shady area where you can at least see it. By understanding that you do what you do will give you a bit
more peace within yourself and lesser outbursts towards others. You need to take that step first because you can't "fix" something when you don't
even acknowledged it as trouble.
Then you can take the second step which is contemplating and analysing the emotions and thoughts concerning that aspect to the very core. You will see
that it runs deeper then you thought it originally was. Don't try to judge those emotions and thoughts and only focus on understanding them.
The third step is that when you understand the why and what you can re-judge it. You simply look differently at things now as you did 1 month ago, let
alone 20 years ago or whenever the incidents occured which caused you to create those personal barrieres. You can re-judge the barieres and shackles
that society and the media placed on your. Their beliefs are not automatically yours after all, you simply copied them as you grew older. Thus you are
not who you truly are. It is important to understand and also understand why other people do what they do even though you don't agree with it and
should do it differently. Still that does not make the other individual or society wrong/good and you can respect and accept that the others do it
differently without feeling the need to change/judge them as if you're so self-righteous, actions based upon ego and self gratification to fill a gap
within yourself. (Like the USA does with so many countries). People who are introvert and incompetent often talk loudly and overcompensate trying to
cover their own short comings and putting a blaming finger towards others.
When you got rid of all those barieres of emotions and the mind you will be able to not judge events by personal moral and beliefs. You will see
things more clearly as they simply are. Since there are no barriers, lets use chakras since most people use that system, those energy centres are open
and allow the energies to flow freely without obstacles. You're at a more constant pace of peace of mind and eventually that constant state of
"meditation" as some texts put it.
OBE will become easier, Telepathy becomes easier, Telekineses becomes easier, live itself becomes easier....anything you can think of becomes easier
and better for yourself. You can simply enjoy live.
Next to that it is important to make sure all things in your physical life are in order and dealt with properly. The more worries, stress and
distractions will cause you to fail in other areas. Spend to much time with OBE's and your physical life will turn into ruins. Find that delicate
balans in everything.
