There are several key things to consider before training yourself;
1. Do you now, or have you ever, experienced involuntary 'waking sleep paralysis' on multiple occasions?
I think 99% of people have experienced this at some point in their past, or they will experience in the future. However, 100% of people are capable of
experiencing 'waking sleep paralysis'. In fact, every healthy person experiences SP each and every time they sleep.
If you have experienced involuntary 'waking sleep paralysis', you are more likely to experience OBE sooner that those who do not.
2. Have you experienced 'Lucid Dreaming' on one or more occassions?
This too can be an important factor in how long you may need to practice before inducing your first OBE.
Lucid dreaming is a dream where you are aware of being in a dreamstate.
There is an alternate experience, known as 'Waking Dreams', that closely resembles 'Lucid Dreaming'. Both dreamstates take place in a dreamscape,
created by your mind. The key difference between the two is:
Lucid Dreaming: You are fully aware of being in a dreamstate. Also, you have absolute control of everything that happens and everything you see,
touch, taste, hear, or feel. You can do anything that you wish and make ANYTHING happen.
Waking Dreams: They are the same as Lucid Dreams, with one glaring difference. You are unable to control or have any influence of what you see, hear,
It is important to know how sleeping works, the different phases of sleep, and the type of dreams you may experience.
This information will let you know that you are experiencing and can help guide you to the state you want to reach.
Sleep Paralysis is the foundation of OBE induction.
When we lay down to sleep, our bodies begin a process that eventually leads to REM sleep - the state in which we experience dreams.
Entering sleep state follows a chain of events. First we unconsciously fall asleep and a few moments later we enter SP.
The reasons for SP is so that we do not try to physically act out or dreams, which could lead to potential harm. The reason we fall asleep before it
occurs is so that we do not realize we are paralyzed and freak out!
At it's core, OBE relies solely on our ability to manipulate the events of our natural sleep process. In order to induce OBE, you must change the
order, so that you enter SP BEFORE you enter unconscious sleep.
This is where the focus of practice should be.
I will give you a brief description of inducing SP and OBE, but, if you'd like to learn more, you should have a look at the basics of OBE induction
in a few videos found on youtube. Simply search 'OBE Inducing', or 'How to have an OBE', or 'Learn how to OBE or Astral Travel'

Inducing Sleep Paralysis and Out-Of-Body-Experiences:
Make sure the area you plan to do this in can be very dark, basically pitch-black. It should also be a place of absolute silence. It is best to
attempt OBE in this way, because this environment is a very weak form of sensory deprivation.
Lie down in a supine position (on your back). Get extremely comfortable - a position you can fall asleep in, a comfort level in which you don't have
to move around while going to sleep.
You must do everything in your power to remain consciously awake, but relaxed, and with 0 movement.
You may feel yourself losing consciousness as you doze off. Be sure to identify this if it happens, taking special care to remain 100% motion-free.
Remain still in your position and continue working towards deeper and deeper relaxation, while maintaining continued consciousness.
When SP initiates, you will begin experiencing a brand new feeling. It can be overwhelming and could cause you to snap out of it and fully wake-up.
Lying on your back, and beginning at your toe tips, you will begin to feel a pressure sensation slowly creep up your feet, to your calves, then
thighs, followed by your torso, then your head.
It feels like you may imagine a heavy blanket made of iron would feel if it were slowly draped over your bady, moving from your feet upwards.
Once this heavy weight encompasses your body, you may begin experiencing auditory or visual hallucinations - auditory are most common and they sound
like one of those 'rain-sticks' ( a hollow cylinder with interior pegs and hundreds of bb's inside. You turn it upside down to hear the bb's fall
across the pegs )
Once you reach this point you need to induce the OBE. That means you must now get out of your body.
The best way I can describe how trying to separate feels is by comparing it to how it feels when trying to pull 2 magnets apart.
I simply try to roll over. It takes me 2-3 attempts at rolling over before I am able to separate. However, some people have trouble at this point and
must develop a method for separation that works best for them.
One method is to imagine that you are climbing one of those long ropes, attached to a gym cieling. Your astral self will literally climb right out of
You must also remember to stay calm and do not become frightened. That sounds easy enough, but a couple of hallmarks of conscious sleep paralysis and
the beginning of OBE is an outrageously ridiculous feeling of fear - it can best be described as feeling the presence of an entity made of 'pure
evil'. You must realize this is not really real.
I believe our bodies have evolved this mechanism of pure evil fear as a way to make us wake up. Our body realizes that our sleep process has changed
(SP before unconcious sleep) and this evil fear is an alarm that startles us awake and allows us to re-start the sleep process.
It is important to learn how to supress the feelings, in order to go deeper into OBE.
Once you have successfully achieved separation you must try to remain calm, but it is the most difficult thing to do, because of the excitement and
the extreme emotional feelings. You will feel so much love that many compare it to what they imagine a state of pure ecstacy might feel - I agree.
When you 'get out' of your body, you may be suprised to see that you are in the identical room you entered OBE in. EVERYTHING is identical to the
real world, but you may notice subtle differences, like a different color on the walls, or a different type os window shade.
If you can remain calm and etend your experience, you will find that the laws of physics do not apply in any way.
You can fly, you can walk through walls, etc.
Each attempt you make should bring you closer and closer to success.
