While you may be able to read this book and learn how to OOBE in four days, I highly doubt you will be successful.
The whole idea behind being able to OOBE is learning how to recognize when you are bordering the sleep and wake state by recognizing hypogogic sounds
and hallucinations, feelings of falling, floating, certain sensations that accompany OOBE and so on. Also, the ability to make reality checks a habit,
common enough to perform them while dreaming is another way, but also takes much more then four days.
If you want to have the most successful chance to OOBE, I highly recommend you attempt it in the early morning. If you try at night you will
immediately fall into a deep sleep and have no chance. The idea is to border the sleep and wake states, so you can stay conscious while the body falls
asleep.By allowing yourself five hours or so of sleep before trying to astral project, you won't fall into a deep sleep right away, and will allow
yourself more time to get used to the certain signs, feelings, sounds, etc.. that you need to recognize in order to be successful at will.
Also, another tip is to set your snooze for about... twenty minutes or so. Each time it wakes you up, try to project while falling back asleep. What
this does gives you multiple attempts to practice being in the desired state to OOBE. Obviously if you do end up OOB this will cut it short, but the
point of this is to practice getting the hang of letting your body fall asleep while the mind stays awake.
Often times I know its time for me to exit my body when it feels like I can see through my eyelids. Also I will hear sounds that remind me of a loud
freight train running through my room. Voices are common, as well as a feeling of falling. If you feel yourself falling, try not to jump and ruin it.
Let yourself keep falling and eventually you will separate from your body. The most common method I use to OOBE is to "roll" out of my body to the
side. It really does feel like I am rolling over in bed, but its very distinct and easy to tell that its your astral self. It almost feels a lot like
you are under water.
Well, hopefully some of these tips are useful to a lot of you. These are some of the ways I have been able to OOBE for the last ten or so years with
pretty good results. While I cant do it every night even if I tried, I can still do it multiple times a week if I wanted. For some reason I find if I
can OOBE once, its a lot easier to do it again the same night in the event I get woken up. I have had up to five or so separate OOBEs in a single
night, although I'd prefer to have one long one - but sometimes the dog's just dont want to let me sleep, lol.
Edit: I'll try to answer any questions if anyone wants to ask. Also my old threads and posts have a ridiculous amount of OOBE/Astral projection/Lucid
dreaming information within them.
