A question for people who experience OBEs
Do you feel like your spine is vibrating prior to having an OBE?

If so, does it happen every time you have an OBE or just some of the time?


Also, if anyone here would like to share their OBE experiences in detail, I'd love to read about them.

Additionally, if you are an OBEer, have you had any problems being caught in electrical lines while you are out of your body?


Thanks.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs

Yes, but more like whole body vibrates.

If so, does it happen every time you have an OBE or just some of the time?
Seems to be some degree of vibration every time, altho sometimes a light floaty feeling is more apparent.

Also, if anyone here would like to share their OBE experiences in detail, I'd love to read about them.

Additionally, if you are an OBEer, have you had any problems being caught in electrical lines while you are out of your body?

No such problems here. I have had problems with ET's tho. They have interrupted my "journey" a few times.

Thanks.

Yes, but vibrations are not what you should shoot for. You should shoot for the quiet zone after the vibration stage as a signal that you're ready to exit into the OBE.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
It's not the spine. It's the whole body. But it's not all the time for everybody. For some, it's always the precursor.

The times I've been out, I had no vibrations at all. On the other hand, I've had vibrations many times without getting out.
Nothing really matters. Unless you think it does.

OBE Vibrations & 3 Ways To Tell How Close You Are To An OBE

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1372445


I agree with AC and the video host that vibrations are not the goal, and that they seem to indicate a dual focus - like you're partly in the physical plane and partly in the astral.

However, I would also advise anyone new to this to not take everything this guy in the video says as 100% science-fact.

Robert Monroe was a pioneer in the field of OBEs and developed real technology to aid in this new science.

Whatever a person says is true, is true for *them* - but it's not necessarily true for everyone.

If your having vibrations, it's a good sign that you're making progress beyond standard physical activity and you should continue your efforts. I would also recommend reading books by Monroe or Buhlman.

First vibrations are a good indicator that you are progressing into the OBE state and can vary.

Second, no problems with power-lines or any other obstacle.

Third, sometimes a challenge to actually get relaxed enough to get out but certainly worthy once achieved.

We are actually projecting "into" our body. That is something a lot of people don't realize.

Shit. This is what I thought was happening a couple of weeks ago. I had the feeling, the distinct feeling that something, and I thought about the ets, or a dark entity, was trying to help me out, lead me out. I started to go, but withdrew. Very bizarre that you all seem to get this, wow. It was more of a "fu, I'm not going" sort of feeling and it pissed me off that they interfered.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
Yeah, actually I feel like my whole body is vibrating, a couple of times it was vibrating at the speed of a dentist's drill.
LOL,..I've had no problems getting caught in electrical lines, though I've had an encounter with a ghost from the local ghost town I live nearby. I've also been out in space a few times, been able to see the earth in the sky,..so beautiful. Once I saw it in the sky, and in the clouds surrounding it, was a giant rainbow that was wrapped around.

Could you explain what you mean by that?

Since you are already in your body to begin with, how would you project into it?

This has to fall under the category again of what is true for one person isn't necessarily true for everyone else. If you project into your body, that's great for you. But for me, I'm starting there and have no desire for that to be my destination.

What's true for me is that their are multiple realities or dimensions, each at a different frequency. We perceive that which we're in tune with. We are automatically in tune with the physical world (for the most part - "insane" people may be only partially tuned in) and when we "project", we alter our frequency so that we can travel in other dimensions.

Dreaming is an automatic means of doing this on a regular basis, which is why lucid dreaming can be a gateway to OBEs.

We most certainly project from a non-physical local into this reality system. It's not easily apparent until you start to remember post-life experience and what this "reality" actually is.

Robert A. Monroe talks about duality between the physical and non-physical and in his terminology he identifies that we have a "I here" in this reality, and a "I there" in non-physical reality.

It is the "I there" that is projecting into the "I here" so that the "I here" can experience what it is to be human, but the "I here" comes from the non-physical reality.

The problem with the metaphors are apparent, but what we are really talking about is a consciousness driven system where we as consciousness enter into designer reality systems for the purpose of having experiences.

To do so, we focus a part of ourself and project it into that system. Exactly what we are doing right now. Like the movie Avatar when Jake has to project into a Na'vi on Pandora.

Even thought that is a movie, the idea fits our projection into a human body for the physical experience. This body is our avatar. We exist outside of it in a non-physical reality projecting into it.

Going out-of-body is actually just returning to non-physical reality from which we actually come from. It is the After-life, the Eternity... the void.

I have had over 3,000 Out-of-body experiences and Lucid dreams. Over 23 years worth.

When I was a kid, I remembered existing before this life and passing into a vortex that locked me into the current life I have.

It was during my exploration of the OBE state that I became aware that I was actually projecting into my body when I woke up.

We think we project out-of-body hence Astral Projection and that is a bit of a misconception of the actual process.

The Mind-Awake/Body-Asleep state be it OBE or Lucid Dream or whatever we want to call being awake and conscious when our body is asleep is the most important spiritual tool Humans have for personal growth and exploration of a larger consciousness reality system.

I highly recommend it.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
Vibrations, yes. Also often a sound like a paper bag being crumbled, or velcro being undone. Sometimes the roar of "many waters".

No problems with electric lines.

Sometimes hear one's body breathing as one gets out.

OBE's are very real. Only those who've not recognized the experience would deny them.

About the "projecting into" that a Canadian poster mentioned: I've an elderly friend, retired medical doctor, who says the same thing--he believes we project into and slowly occupy our bodies. Various infirmities occur when this process finds itself delayed, psychological and physical problems. (not the sole cause of problems, though, but contributory to some of them.)

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
An excellent time to be conscious of an OBE is when one returns to bed after visiting the bathroom at night. If you fall asleep with an awareness of wanting to OBE, as often as not you will, and recall aspects of it quite well.

It is actually an attention focusing intent driven technique. There are lots of methods, but fundamentally the idea is to allow your body to fall asleep without switching off the mind.

Robert A. Monroe is really the Grandfather of modern day Astral Projection. His earliest method was just to concentrate at a spot in his mind outside the body as his body was falling asleep.

Over the years this evolved into a technology aided system using Hemi-Sync (which to this day I don't use).

The idea is simple, focus on being consciously awake and allow the body to fall asleep naturally.

Interupting your sleep cycle ie... sleep 4-5 hours wake up for 30 minutes physically out of bed. Go back after bathroom etc and no more then 1/2 cup of fluid (non-cafinated).

Then try to focus on being awake on a spot and let the body fall asleep. Don't focus on the body and allow all the natural changes of sleep to occur.

Takes a bit of practice, but if you are sincere and have the right intent and attitude it will happen.

You are consciousness. Being conscious is natural. Even during physical sleep.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
Vibrations as said here are accurate, but at times are not noticeable. There are also odd things that can be part of this experience.

In the far past, it was easy to just fly over the farm but then subsided with age and overlays of life experience. Then at other times like many the buzzing happens and it takes much concentration to stay aloft and be in the trees a complete opposite of when I was a kid.

Mention of others is also part of my changes. I detect or have more than one persons being with me, no vision of them here, just a knowing and words spoken to me.

Also confusing is the multiplicities of the self. I have known my body was there, yet my consciousness was aware of myself the light body and even saw it. It was as though my ego, my identity here was separated and this was when the others were assisting. That would mean, I was two parts in the higher dimension and one, the body in the lower. The body from this perspective is of no consequence.

In one, I actually had to order the body, the primitive part to calm down and cool it, after trying to confront an unknown entity that was messing with my grand son. I did not do so well in this case, as I found myself in blackness in a strange place until I took control back.

OBE's I feel we have so many possibilities it cannot be adequately defined here or elsewhere,.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
I meant to mention another aspect of this, the wake experience which is new to me. I have backed off this, a little due to physical problems.

Some may recognize this, it is new to me. All my life I have had a "knowing of things". Like when looking a a new car one time the dealer could not find the key. I pointed to a part of the room and told him it was over there behind another car, it was just me. I would fly my ultralight airplane and "know" when the gas was getting low and then land.

This last month, I found my wife's smart key, but did a count down and expanded my consciousness, similar to an obe, but filling up the home with myself. I told her which corner it was in in the bedroom, the color of the pocket purse, which turned out to be a pocket attached to a large purse and I was right. The problem here was, it left me dizzy for an hour.

Then a day later, it did this awake thing of expansion again and was so dizzy, it took two days to ground myself and get fully back into the body, I felt as though it was being manipulated by me from outside, not a good feeling.

That is my thoughts as well, gnostic. I think it can be very easy to misinterpret intentions of entities while experiencing certain phenoms like OBE's ect. There is an immediate association with fear, but it is caused by the 'unknown' and is a natural response to the human body and psyche.

Normally, it is negative entities that will try and scare the bejeebus out of you to make sure you do not get out-of-body, not vice-versa.

Your biggest enemy is fear. It convolutes everything about the experiences. Just keep that in mind when you begin experiencing the 'new'. If you have a clear mind you can better discern if you are ready for particular experiences or not. It is not that you will get 'harmed' in the process of exploring these types of experiences...it is that you will change because of experiencing them.

You're probably right. Many people who come close but don't quite make it out almost always express some kind of fear.

I can assure you, there is nothing to fear.

It's possible that you can have a scary experience, although not likely, but even if you do, you can't be harmed.

I highly recommend that if you feel any fear at all, change your viewpoint on it so that it turns to excitement instead.

There are also various tools you have at your disposal. Once you are out of the physical, you'll be in an environment where thoughts can create things. So, that can work for you or against you. Fear can create fearful things. You can also shroud yourself in a white, protective light and know that you are impenetrable and safe against anything.

Again, I recommend that you read either Robert Monroe's "Journey's Out of the Body" or William Buhlman's "Adventures Beyond the Body."

Both books are written by people who had no prior knowledge of OBEs, they had no idea what was going on when they started to have them, and they each became respected authorities on the subject.

Neither book is written in a new-age, spacey kinda way.

Monroe was a successful businessman in radio and the early years of cable TV, was not religious and had no interest in things metaphysical. He actually had his head examined for fear that something was wrong with him either physically or mentally when his OBEs started.

Anyway, reading these books could do a lot to alleviate any fear that will prevent you from exploring.

Nothing really matters. Unless you think it does.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
Monroe's stuff helped me the most out of any book, in understanding the experiences.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
The video explaining the process is pretty much what I've been experiencing since early childhood, as well as a sister of mine. The vibrational thing isn't really loud, more of a white noise affair, sometimes it may accompany a loud cracking or clapping sound in my head. Next part, and oftentimes the most difficult is relaxing and NOT giving into any fear. Once attained, an undulating, twisting, and rolling sensation ensues. It can feel a bit heavy- vivid sensations of "dropping" on the floor by the body may occur. Almost like at this point is's a bit difficult to fully disengage and "break on through" so to speak.

Then the "fun" part comes. Usually there's a strong feeling that "protectors" are nearby to assist. A presence that feels comforting, familiar, and safe. Rapid acceleration then can occur, colors are brighter, sounds that are not normally detected by the body become apparent. The usual aches and pains we feel much of the time in body have vanished, it is such a relief!

Rapid flight, sometimes accompanied by very real physical sensations of the wind rushing through ones hair and on the face. Scenes of beautiful countrysides, and on occation with a couple other "fellow" wanderers. Validation on where one "visits" can actullly happen. Seeing ones sister, what color pajamas, little details of surroundings, their frame of mind, list is vast. Going forward or backward in "time" as we know it is easy. Past, present, and future feel to somehow exist at all the same time.

Mutual "sharing" of such experiences is not uncommon with family members, taking the "form" for lack of better words as "same dream, same night" scenerio- with say 4 people or so.

Another interesting but related discovery on this subject was while listening to an Aboriginal cultural "clip" from a CD. The sounds, tempo,and nuances REPLICATED this OBE thing ALL with sound. One needs to listen carefully to this for about 3 times or so. My niece was powerfully affected by hearing it. Pretty heavy stuff.

Re: A question for people who experience OBEs
Thanks for all the thoughtful and interesting answers.

I experienced obes after a week of not sleeping and my body vibrating (for no known reason, although I have my suspicions). It started on Easter Sunday 2005 and then after about 100 hours without sleep and shaking, I jumped out of my body and into another realm.

I had another OBE the next day and then that was it...nothing since, and I don't feel close to doing it. I wish I could.

Would the OBE-ers who have encountered other entities speak more on that?

Has anyone seen any historical or mythological figures during their astral travels?

What about the people who saw aliens...what did the aliens look like?

Also, what do the places that you go to look like? Has anyone ever found themselves in a temple-like structure with an altar?
