Beyond the OBE with Monroe Institute Director Nancy McMoneagle

Monroe Institute Director Nancy McMoneagle tells us about exciting breakthroughs and new directions that the institute is taking to further the extraordinary spiritual quest started by Robert Monroe.

The Monroe Institute provides experiential education programs facilitating the personal exploration of human consciousness. Over the last 30+ years, tens of thousands of people have attended the Institute’s residential and outreach programs, and millions have benefited from our educational materials. The Institute admits students of any race, color, creed, and national or ethnic origin.

The Monroe Institute also serves as the core of a research affiliation investigating the evolution of human consciousness and making related information available to the public. The Institute is devoted to the premise that focused consciousness contains solutions to the major issues of human experience.

Visit the Monroe Institute at MonroeInstitute.org. Whitley Strieber did a Gateway at the Monroe Institute, and found it to be a wonderful experience. To explore their programs, click here.

Experiences Beyond the Body

Whitley and Anne Strieber and Nancy McMoneagle share an intimate conversation about their personal experiences of the spirit world and the sort of life journey that involves out of body travel but goes far beyond it. This is one of the most valuable and informative conversations about first hand experience of OBEs and beyond that you will ever hear.

Anne, Whitley and Nancy McMoneagle, YES, I agree that intention is most of what is needed in the experience and I thank you all for this interview.

I would like to share an experience I had in the early to mid 1980s. My husband and I had divorced and I was living in an apartment for about five years.

A few years after our divorce he developed a heart problem and needed a (heart) transplant. I cannot remember if this incident happened while he was still waiting for the transplant surgery or if this happened after the surgery????? He lived for many years after.

On this particular evening I attended the symphony orchestra with an evening of Mozart; I had really been looking forward to it.

I get home, go to bed, fall asleep and at some point I am caught up in ONE of the strangest experiences ever. (Believe me I have had many).

I am stuck in a state between being awake and sleep. My former spouse is laying in bed next to me and looking almost physical but not quite as dense as a physical body should. Although I do not touch him (still I had presence of mind even in this state to know he did not belong in my bed). THEN, my cat Sam is nose to nose with me, her eyes are huge and I do not know if she is confused or scared.

Still I do not wake up but am trying to after seeing Sam in this strange state of being. It is now morning and when I get out of bed, my former spouse is gone and my cat Sam has urinated all over the bedding which she had NEVER done before.

Something disturbed her and she acted out. I never forgot this incident, only the exact timeline.



Hi, I've also had many of these experiences but I think their just part of being human. Many explain this as being in touch with god or the divine but I see it somewhat differently I think its about being in touch with our natural connection to the universe. We have forgotten this natural connection and without it I don't think life would even be possible here. So I see all these experiences as being very natural and nothing to be afraid of and I believe everyone has probably had at least something of this nature occur in their lives. This is probably the basis of why shamanism works and why it has been around for so long

I have been to the Monroe Institute twice -- for Gateway and Guidelines. I would recommend it for everyone, but be aware they can't guarantee an OBE or even a profound experience. Hemi-sync works better on some people than others. They have very little effect on me.

For people that can't make it to the Monroe Institute, you can buy the Gateway Experience cd's from their website and use them at home which is what I did. I love Focus 12 "expanded awareness" and listen to the Free Flow version of it from time to time. If you do take the Gateway program at TMI I believe they give you the cd's with the focus levels to take home with you to use afterward.
