Hi Buddie. I've been pretty busy and am tired. I've had some pretty strange experiences of late, and I've just about given up trying to put names and labels on things. One thing I do want to note is that I seem to experience being especially free and happy in my out of body states. I've wondered if that happiness is due to the fact that what I call the "ego" mind of me isn't running the whole show anymore. Lots to ponder. Does anyone else have any more ideas?

SC,

That is exactly what is happening. As you are able to let go of the left brain/mind/ego and be in the right brain/spiritual, you will continue to find happiness in those experiences...and a lot of knowledge.

Don't try and put a label on what is happening. It is the mind/ego that wants to label everything.

Sounds like you are doing great.

Thank you, AS. That whole left brain wants to conclude, predict and judge and that's flat out impossible. I used to think that it was "me." I've also experienced situations where I am out of body, and suddenly have access to a huge amount of knowledge that I seem to have "forgotten" while in this incarnation, or in my left brain state for want of a better way of saying it. This includes meeting guides and feeling like I having a reunion with people I've somehow forgotten, to experiencing terror in several alien encounters, where I am taken out of body and I suddenly "remember" them and I'm happy to see them. I feel like I'm putting on some kind of blocking helmet that keeps information from me when I move back into what I call ego awareness, or "normal" left brain functioning. This is all a huge process of discovering that "I" am quite different than I like to see myself as being. LOL

For the past week or so I've started training in the ecercises in bruce roberts mastering astral projection book. So far I havent gotten any projections yet, but I remember an incident that occurred about a year ago. At the time I assumed this was just a lucid dream but after reading about how sometimes things seen while projecting may appear different, I think it may be an actual experience, what do you all think?

About a year ago I had an experience where I seemed to float up out of my body while I was asleep. I was in my room but a few things were different, some of the posters on the walls looked different then the ones that are there in real life which is why I initially thought this must have just been a lucid dream. Another thing that happened was a strange lizard like animal resembling a large gecko crawled across the ceiling before vanishing through the wall while I was doing this.

So what's the verdict? Think this was a real projection experience or not?

On Sunday evening, June 6, 2010, I had a dream in which I was at home, but it was different, with a lot more rooms. My mother was also there, and maybe somebody else too. I talked to her a little, but didn't actually see her much, as she spent most of her time in other rooms. Things seemed strange, and everything, even the air, had a kind of grainy feeling. As we talked, I wandered through various rooms, ending up in one that didn't normally exist. It was mostly bare, with pale walls.

I was carrying what seemed to be a bar of very large soap, maybe seven or eight ounces. It was vaguely egg-shaped, but with sharp, almost square, edges, with flat sides and just a little rounded on the top and bottom. I had been intending to take a shower at some time, I think, when I got around to it. Something was going to happen later, it seemed, or somebody was going to come, maybe the next day, in the morning. It was late at night now, and things seemed bleak. I held the heavy soap in my right hand, and glumly looked at the bare, grainy walls.

Suddenly I was drawn away, back to my bedroom, flowing through the air, my body stretched out and distorted, still hearing the voices from the other rooms. As I settled into bed, or my spirit did, I felt a return to more solidity, and became aware that I actually was in bed and had been sleeping, but was now waking up. I still held the large bar of soap in my hand.

Then I felt a change, a kind of coolness, and like my body was changing to bright points and shifting forward, my head and upper body moving partly out of my physical body, moving upward a little, but still not fully out. As it was doing this, my perspective also shifted, the ceiling becoming closer. I recognized what was happening, from the feeling and the shift in vision, the going closer to the ceiling. I was trying to have an out of body experience, an astral projection, and was already partway out of my body. I wanted to have one, and tried to concentrate on making it happen. The ceiling seemed to loom much closer for a moment, like I was right underneath it, so close that I drew my head back some in surprise, squinting at it. I didn't feel too much different, but there seemed to be an increase in outside noise, a kind of muffled roaring and murmuring.

Then I was back where I had been, still on the bed, partway out of my body, but less so than before. I was still holding the heavy soap. Amused, I dumped it out of my hand, to let it fall back over the side of the bed, on the side toward the wall. It didn't seem important now.

I thought, still with amusement, that it might be my soul, like in the book by Roger Zelazny, "Jack of Shadows." In the book, on the dark, magic-controlled side of the earth, a person's soul was contained in an egg-shaped rock that he found he held in his hand, when he died and was resurrected and found himself laying on a mound at the south pole.

If it was my soul, I had just dumped it. Oh well, I could always come back and get it later, I thought, and went back to trying to have an out of body experience. I don't remember much after that, though it seems that something did happen. Maybe even quite a bit, which brings a certain uneasiness to thoughts about it. Thoughts about beings I might have met, and contracts entered into and broken, and struggles with the beings and struggles about them, and an opposing side that helped me, and that I helped, and some difficulty in getting my soul back after all. It seems like something like that might have happened, it feels like it might have, but there's no way to know for sure. I have just the briefest of memories. There was never any soap, though, it was all part of the dream. I know; I looked for it after I woke up.

Stephen,

I enjoyed what you wrote...if I
smile to myself and don't get bored
by something I read...it's good.

The soap thing was probably with you to
keep you aware that what you were experiencing
was not of the ordinary time frame that you
are living in now and you held on to it until
you got back. I've done something similar and
looked under the covers and under the bed for the object.

Then again I never have tried to have an OOB,
my problem is staying in my body. Reason I kinda
keep to myself nowadays.

Long ago, perhaps in the 1970s, I had what seemed very much to be an out of body experience, where long, thick, soft, pale cables were hanging down through the ceiling, all over my bedroom. It was very late at night, with most of the lights off, and the bedroom was almost dark. Other than the cables, everything in the bedroom seemed normal.

I was very tired and was in the middle of the room attempting to climb them, but couldn't get very far. When I pulled on a cable, more of it came out, like it was on a reel somewhere far above me, and I could only get a little off the floor. I kept slowly trying, hanging on the cable, my distance from the floor ranging from an inch or so to maybe a foot or two. I could never make much progress, and it became harder as time progressed, because I was getting tireder, and losing my strength. Eventually, I wasn't far above the floor at all, sometimes touching it.

It went on for a long time.

Is there a difference between the out-of-body experience and remote viewing, and, if so, what is it? Perhaps the OBE involves the soul leaving the body, whereas others will say that the soul doesn't leave, but that clairvoyance is simply involved. And what is at work with remote viewing, sometimes dubbed "ESPionage"? Astral travel? Accessing the collective unconscious? Clairvoyance? Is the OBE and remote viewing one and the same thing?

According to Russell Targ, in his book "Limitless Mind" (page 57), remote viewing is seeing a distant scene on a mental screen, and an out of body experience is traveling to the distant scene mentally.

Just my 2 cents on this...
I have spontaneously been in the astral plane, on many OBE's, and remote viewed. I do not know exactly how I came into many of these states of consciousness except that in most of the OBE's my Visitor was present. I did not know what was happening until after later reflecting and reading others experiences. Then I understood more of what was occurring.

My most recent travels have occurred either as OBE's or in a simultaneous life, if that makes any sense. Much like Stephen's description above post 2444, but with more details.

BTW- I seriously doubt that Russell Targ has actually traveled or remote viewed anything since his assessment does not agree with what I have personally experienced.

Are you serious? You feel that you are more experienced in the remote viewer experience than Russell Targ? I would like to know more about your experiences along this line also about your Visitor guide

MS,

Yeah, she is far more adept...and if I were Her I wouldn't breathe a word of it here on this site.

All she will get is the usual fear mongering from the trolls and scaredy cats (sorry Cat, did mean to disparage you...it's another one of those stupid Human sayings). Meow!

Buddie,

It's an OBE. Remember that you are not travelling as a physical human but as a soul. You can move in time.

As for going back into your body through your feet, you can go back into it at any place.

Maybe Coyote was helping you and said "Well, let's put her back in through her foots."

Sounds like something he would do to me and then roll on the floor laughing his rear off.

I haven't had any out of body experiences lately, at least none that I remember, though one time while laying in bed a few weeks ago it did feel like my whole body was vibrating.

Recently read Robert Monroe last two books. They are incredible. If you really want to know what happens after you die (OBE's are a sampling) read those books. Interesting to say the least. The Monroe Institute in Faber, VA has started to have open houses in which you can get on a list to experience Hemi-Sync. That is a technique of absorbing sound to put one in a state in which you can leave the body consciously, mind awake, body asleep. I attended one in November. The sessions are expensive, but you can get a feel for what can happen if you attend an open house, which is free. Two, hour long sessions.
I will probably go to a long session one of these days, when I can spare the time.

Beautiful country up there and Faber is an artsy community which is fairly liberal, especially compared with so many other spots in VA.

I read Robert Monroe's book- I think it was called "Journeys out of the Body" or something like that in the early 1970's. Shortly thereafter I experiences a period of OOBE's that were intense and more real than life here in the body. I think aligning oneself with ley lines has a lot to do with traveling easily-have not been able to do it in such a controlled way since I moved from that location.

kathy, I really would recommend Monroe's last two books. I feel like he has explored the afterlife, by way of OBE, and his take on it surpasses any religion.

I'm looking at the hemi-sync products from The Monroe Institute. Anyone have suggestions on where to start? I'm looking at Gateway Experience-Wave 1. I think there are folks here who have been to the Monroe Institute, hoping they can offer some insight on where to begin. Thanks!

I'm still a neophyte with Hemi-Sync. I bought the first six sets of DVD's when I was at the institute recently, but I haven't given them a good enough chance yet. From reports, however, I was snoring pretty intensely.

But, as mentioned, I haven't given them a real chance yet.
Further up in the thread, there is a discussion about it, though I haven't read thru them thoroughly.

I don't really doubt that they work quite well, as so many have had success.

I've never played any of them but after seeing them, I might try one in particular. They sound interesting!

HI Jill,
they just started having free Open Houses this past Sept. I went to one in November and there is or was one this month. Check out their website. It's free, and you can experience two sessions, each about an hour long. They serve lunch and the food is very good. At least that is how it was set up when I visited. Both sessions involve laying in bed (many beds, many rooms) putting on headphones, relaxing and listen to Hemi Sync. Robert Monroe speaks the objective is for your body to fall asleep but your mind stays awake. That is the point when all sorts of interesting things can happen.
