I have extensive experience in "out-of-body" states although I am ANYTHING but a "natural" at it. In fact, I've spent a small fortune in acquiring
these skills--but with that said, I must admit that I should probably be better at it than I am.
I am a graduate of TMI's Gateway Voyage residential program and my experiences there are the main foundation of my ongoing "hobby" of exploring the
universe and its bizarre layers. Cool stuff.
Although I learned a lot of technique at TMI, my first OBE took place with my brother and was experienced by both of us. I have many more experiences
pertaing to this subject but due to the fact that I'm typing on a touch screen, I'll stick to this one experience. It is recounted below.
It was my 18th month of purification for a certain degree I was seeking. It was 18 months of no sex, vegan diet, and much more including yoga. My
everloving brother was not participating in the purification ritual but he knew what it was about and was patient with my eccentricities and since we
were flatmates he was stuck with me anyway.
Well, one night in my bedroom, my brother joined me for midevening meditation, stretching and yoga. We meditated at length and then he watched as I
did my stretches and then did some yoga. After some easier positions, I started to stretch out again to get ready for some tougher stuff. I
stretched my sides and then did a deep backbend. I doubled my fists, put them in the small of my back and then let my body bend over them. At the
deepeat part of the bend, I hears "BANG" or something like hitting a metal garbage can filled with broken glass with a baseball bat. Everything went
black and I apparently collapsed.
I revived and rose to me feet. My head was sore. I looked on the floor and saw my plastic fan all black and charred with a fanblade broken off. I
realized I must have hit my head on the blade. I looked over at my brother who was seated (as before) against the wall. The expression on his face
was like he was seeing a ghost. I asked him "what the hell just happened?". He responded "you turned to black ashes and blew away. how did you get
back on the floor?" To my brother, it looked like I did some type of illusionist trick--as I'd I went POOF and blew away and then reappeared. Well,
that was some weird crap.
So bizarre and shocked were both my brother and myself the we decided to try some new meditation techniques. We got this idea to lie on the floor
next to each other with our heads reclining against pillows stacked against the wall--we were half-lying or lounging, you might say. We clasped
hands--my left and his right--and our elbows rested on the floor with our forearms sticking straight up like a tower.
We closed our eyes and did a few deep breaths. Within seconds, I felt an exalted presence. Behind my eyelids I could see waves of white strobing
faster and faster accompanied by a high-pitched whine getting higher and higher.
Within seconds I was pulled of my body and my brother was there too. We were joined by two others--one of whom was once a living man and the other
who is still a mystery to me. The former human was someone I knew through literature and I won't reveal who it was because this story sounds crazy
enough as it is. But here's a hint: I changed all my plans and enrolled at TMI within a month. The other entity was introduced to me as Mr. Green
and indeed he appeared to be made of green light vaguely in anthropomorphic form. My brother said he reminded him of a green shape-shifting amoeba.
To me, my brother appeared as a ball of light that if looked upon gave away his identity. He described me in the same way but said that I sometimes
took a fuzzy anthropomorohic form. I noticed the same about him.
The two entities told us to talk it over and that they would be back to take us on a "ride" if we wanted. Also, the former human thanked me for
sending him and his wife good thoughts and he even showed me images of myself when reading one of his books and thinking fond thoughts of him and his
wife. He told me that he and his wife appreciated it. He also asked me to explain to my brother who he is because my brother hadn't read his
My brother and I opened our eyes after seamlessly transitioning back into our body awareness. And HOLY CRAP were we excited! And freaked out too.
Being two adventurous guys, we knew we had to go with the entities again.
At once and clear as a bell, I got the call. Yes, CALL. No kidding. It's like your brain is "set on vibrate" but a more accurate
description is the overwhelming feeling of wanting to lay your head back along with a strange "exalted" or euphoric feeling. Very unique.
My bro and I clasped hands yet again and no sooner do we close our eyes than:
strobe strobe strobe strobestrobestrobe.....
And there they were. We were in swirly blackness like before but this time the former human entity told us to "pick anyone or any place" and he
directed our attentions to what I call "the network". Everyone is there. All I needed to do was think of someone and BOOM I was at their
"profile"--like MySpace, I thought at the time. The formerly human entity took me to the girl I liked at the time and I communicated with her but
that turned out to he a big mistake. Long story but let me say that amateurs like myself at the time have trouble communicating telepathically
without "spilling the beans" so to speak. Instead of saying "hi", it's like I told her everything that I ever thought including every lie, every
nightmare, every twisted thing that I ever concocted in my depraved mins, in other words.
Needless to say, she was really freaked out. Damnedest thing is that my brother, shortly after I freaked her out, did a 3-way telepathy Dr Phil
routine nd patched things up between us.
Running out of time here and my hands hurt. There is much more to this story. I got several more "calls" that night and answered most of them. I
wound up dipping into my savings for TMI and it was the best money I ever spent. There really is a network, folks. And I'm not the only one you'll
find there on most nights.
