OBEs

In my previous post “Good Vibrations” regarding astral projection I wrote of my first experience dealing with an OBE. As of this writing I still have not had any more out-of-body-experiences except for a couple of dreams where I was flying around like superman. Unfortunately, I have many personal issues in my life that I am dealing with leaving me with little time to practice astral projection techniques. Before writing another post I wanted to wait until I had another experience; however, I’ve been doing some research and wanted to share with you some exercises you can practice each day that should help you to have an OBE.

If you read my post “Good Vibrations” I wrote of my body literally vibrating all over at a very high frequency. One of the exercises you can do to try to induce these vibrations is to use your imagination and pretend that your body is vibrating. Next, try to picture your astral body within your physical body vibrating at a higher frequency. While we are on the topic of using your imagination there are several other exercises you can do throughout the day to get you back in those feeling of childhood again.

  • Visualize yourself floating away like a balloon.
  • Pretend you’re astral body is floating out of your physical body.
  • Pretend you can walk out of your physical body and stand next to yourself.
  • While laying down, pretend to “pop” out of your body and float above yourself.
  • Each time you pretend that you leave your body imagine looking back at yourself.
  • While laying down, pretend that you are swaying back and forth like your bed is a giant rocking chair.

The above exercises should get you into that feeling of leaving your body. These can be practiced anytime throughout the day, have fun with them and really use your imagination.

Besides the above imagination exercises there are other things you can do to help increase your chances of having an OBE. There is a transitional state your brain goes through right before you fall asleep. It is the point when your consciousness lets go and your sub-consciousness takes over. This state is known as the Hypnogogic state of sleep. It has often been referred to as a time of visual and audio hallucinations. You may have had many experiences before during this state but never given them any thought. While in this state, I typically receive images or some random idea that I have no idea what it means. On a side note, have a pen and paper nearby and the next time you have one of these messages come through write it down. These may be messages coming through to you from your guides. What you can do for OBE practice is to let yourself come to this state of transition then try to wake yourself back up. It will take plenty of practice to accomplish being able to suspend yourself in this state, but if you are able to do so you will open up amazing possibilities.

The last point I wanted to share with you to help with OBEs is to ask your guides for help. Your guides are here to help you with your journey here in this lifetime. Call on them often and ask for their guidance. You can also call on high level guides to assist you, these guides have more universal knowledge than your personal guides. Don’t be afraid to illicit the help of either kind of guide, your spiritual progression will benefit from their assistance.

    So while you’re in this Hypnogogic state you can have random thoughts pop into your head? Every now and then when I’m waiting to fall asleep I’ll get these thoughts that seem to come from somewhere other than my own mind. It’s like something is putting those thoughts in me. They aren’t my own thoughts. I always figured it was just some weird symptom/manifestation of my Bipolar disorder, but now I’m not so sure. Maybe they are being sent by my guides. The only problem with that theory is that they usually don’t make any sense. They are thoughts, but they seem to be just words strung together. For example, I might get the thought, “The tree went home”, or something like that that doesn’t make any sense. Occasionally they’ll make grammatical sense, or it’ll be like someone is saying my name. What I mean by that is I’ll be laying there and suddenly a voice will enter my mind and say, “Michelle!” or “Chelle!” I have had it come to me in my dad’s voice, but I don’t remember if that happened before or after he died. If it was after he died then it would stand to reason that it was him trying to get my attention.

    I find this explanation very interesting. It never occured to me that it could be my guides or deceased loved ones trying to communicate with me. The next time it happens, which as I said isn’t often, I will write down what comes to me.

      It is just a theory, I am not certain what the messages could be either. It some of the thoughts don’t make sense these could be from a past life, who knows.

    OBE’s……hmmm…..I’m not sure, but I may have had one when I was 10. It was the winter of ’58 and Auntie A had just passed, a few months ago. She was my favorite Aunt and was just 32, and expecting a new baby girl….well, we didn’t exactly know it was a girl, but I hoped for her, Darla was to be her name…..after the little girl in the \Little Rascals\ show.

    Anyway, Auntie A and little Darla, both went to \Heaven\, the night she was born…..so we were told. I was so sad and disappointed, I didn’t want to live anymore…I wanted to go join them. I came from a big famiy and every night, we would all sit around the table and talk about \Heaven\ and what it was like there……..what did they do there, I wondered. I wanted to hold little Darla…. and see Auntie A smile again and take us to the movies and stuff.

    Someone said that they played harps and ate \milk & honey\….which didn’t sound too appetizing to me…..but the Harp thing……..hmmm…..that sparked my curiosity…so every night, I would lay in bed and think about being with Auntie A, Darla, and hearing the Harps!!! One particular night, the wind was blowing and it was very cold outside…….I was wishing, praying that I could hear the Harps….all of a sudden, I felt myself rise above the bed…. I looked down to see my two Sisters on each side of the bed…..and the Harp was playing……..OMG…it scared me so bad, I went crashing back to my bed…….and was sure that I had almost died. I never tried that again…..and was told that the \demons\ had gotten ahold of me and were about to take me to the \land of hell\, because I had \wished\ it upon myself to die. I always think about that experience when I hear Harps playing, but have never tried OBE’s again…..

      Sounds to me like you had an OBE. It’s unfortunate that the crazy demon talk had to scare you at such a young age. Typically children are more in tune with their psychic abilities and since you had that experience I would say you still have the gift. According to Candy that ability runs in the family, Patty has it so I bet you do to. You just need to let go of the fear and enjoy what is yours.

        Psychic stuff does run in our family. Patty related the story that after Jeremy died she was in a store and had to go to the bathroom. I believe it was while she was drying her hands Jeremy appeared to her. She said he kind of smiled then vanished. Candy has also seen things, like Danny. She should tell her stories on here..(yes, that is a hint to you cousin if you are reading this). There was also speculation that some of grandmother’s symptoms may have actually been of a psychic nature.

        I think it would be cool to have an OBE. I suppose the closest I’ve ever come first happened when I was about 9 years old, and has happened occasionally since. I will be lying in bed and my body will start to feel incredibly heavy, like lead, but my consciousness feels as light as a feather. It feels like my consciousness rises up to the ceiling, and yet still stays in my body at the same time. It’s weird. It feels like I’m floating high above, but I can still feel myself in my body. I don’t have any kind of vision ability (like seeing myself in the bed), rather it’s more of a feeing than anything. I always figured it was just some strange manifestation of anxiety, but now I wonder… The next time it happens what should I do to try and actually leave my body? When it happens I don’t try and stop it – it doesn’t frighten me – I just lay there and feel the sensation. Should I ask my guides to help me have an OBE?

          The next time it happens try to gently lift yourself up out of your body. Don’t be afraid, Willa will be there to bring you back. You can also ask your guides for help as well.

    Another story……about 1958, that winter our G-pa came home with a surprise….since we all were wondering about Auntie A, little Darla, Daddy, Aunt Grace, etc…and what they might be doing since they crossed over….an “Ouija Board”!! He explained that you could communicate with the dead….so we would all congregate in the “girls” bedroom every night and call upon the relatives. I came quite adept at using that board……pretty soon, all our friends started coming around, to get in on the fun…some were scared off…….we had quite a time……that is…until the two ladies with Bibles came a knocking and put a stop to that…….it got doused with gasoline and burned to a crisp…..again…we were told that the “Demons” had entered our house and were taking over….is it possible to communicate with those who have passed over…..using a Ouija Board or other devices.

      There are basically two schools of thought on the Ouija Board. As you might imagine many believe it is a device for contacting evil or lower entities. Then there are those who think it is perfectly fine for contacting spirits. Here is my take, if you have fear of evil or malcontent spirits and that it may be possible to welcome those entities into your life with a Ouija board then don’t use one. If you don’t believe any harm can come to you by using one then I don’t see any harm in it. I guess it all boils down to what your energy attracts.

    I don’t know if I believe in Ouija Boards to connect with spirits. It could just be that the thing is moving as a result of the energies of the people using it. You ask a question, either aloud or in your head, and your unconcious answers, possibly telling you what you want to hear. Of course I could be wrong and you could really be contacting spirits. Maybe if you ask your guides to keep negative spirits away, you would only be in contact with loved ones or your guides. I don’t know if our guides have power over negative spirits, but you can always ask.

    I guess the one thing that makes me suspicious of them is that when we were younger (after we left the JW) we played around with them, and I always asked it when I would die – either what year or how old I’d be. It always gave an answer. I don’t believe our guides or loved ones would give us that answer, but a negative spirit probably would just to mess with your head; or your unconcious mind might just to give an answer. I read once where an engineer said that Ouija Boards just work off your energy – that there’s not really anything psychic going on. So I suppose it all boils down to personal belief.

      If Ouija Boards do work off of energy then I can understand why people have the results they do. These boards have such negative thoughts tied to them it’s no wonder people who use them get the results they do. In the past I tried to use one alone and never got it to work. If I had one now with the beliefs I have I wonder what would happen considering I don’t have any fear about them?
