Creating an OBE on demand

February 22, 2009

A very cool thing happened last night: I was able to create an out of body event on demand, which I haven’t been able to do before. I worked on setting it up the whole day (lots of yoga and meditation), then put a card out, laid down, and eventually had that feeling where I knew an out of body experience (OBE) was going to happen, so I relaxed and let it happen.

When it happened I rolled out of bed, looked back at the couch to make sure I was still there, and thought, “Um, stay there, I’ll be right back” — and then the Spiritual I went into the kitchen to look at the card.

I find it very hard to look at a physical thing like a card during an OBE. The more I try to focus it seems like things keep morphing. In this event I saw several cards and suits, and as I tried to concentrate and think “just show me the card that is in the ‘current time as I know time physically’, I knew it was a black eight, though I couldn’t tell the suit. At this point I became too excited, and instantly woke up back in the physical.

I’ve done this so many times already that I didn’t even bother to get up right away. I just put my notes on my recorder, and went back to sleep. Then when I looked at the card this morning and saw that it was a black eight, I was of course happy. This used to really freak me out, but now I just don’t want to be wrong, if that makes any sense.
