OBE or Out of Body Experience
is a fairly common occurrence for humans and doesn't require a
particular belief or religion. Our energy bodies shed our physical
selves, in sleep, in relaxation, that sudden jerk at the edge of sleep
as we reconnect or ground...astral travel is something we all do.
Becoming aware of this process will give you the choice as to when and
where you go.
Once you've decided to consciously pursue
this activity, you must learn to relax. A deep and complete relaxation
and you're half way there. Astral travel or astral body motion
is something that can be controlled and by learning the deeper levels of
mediation or relaxation, your experiences will be more enjoyable.
Let your mind relax from the
stress of the day, finding a quiet place to slip into a semi-trancelike
state. Relax your body and let your thoughts drift for a bit, moving
from this to that, so long as it's positive.
Focus your mind so that you,
rather than "see" a place, try to "feel" the
place you'd like to go, whether it's in the backyard or the next
country. Consider that humans tend to think it's easier to create
a cookie than a castle, but that depends on your perception. In
this case, it might be easier to "feel" a place you've already
been as opposed to relying on mental images of pictures you've seen of
The Monroe Center uses a system that uses
binaural beat technology and claims it's a faster way to learn to leave
the body, but many have their doubts about that system.
Many prefer the old fashioned roll. Like
an old school trick, rolling out of your body is one of the simplest
ways to avoid the occasional disorientation that obe can cause. To
roll, concentrate on your feet and the heat in them. Feel that
heat begin to pull up, like heat the shape of your legs. Pulling
them up and higher, over your head and finally rolling them to the area
behind your head. This method seems to allow a clear separation of
energy and body because the last disconnect is the head chakra area.
You can also do a side roll much the same
way, with the left or right hand being the disconnect point.
The silver cord (as most see) can be seen
as other methods of connection; mist, light, etc. This cord keeps you
anchored to your physical body until its death. Even though your
astral eyes can't always see the cord, it's there.
Try the simple methods to astral travel
and remember to relax into it. It seems that most to the
paranormal arena want to achieve it and believe me, it's completely
achievable. You have to be patient and kind to yourself and seek
to enjoy the experience. It's well worth the effort.
