Quick note: I realized during this last week that at least two of the most active "psychic" periods of my life came during states of at least mild euphoria. First, in late 2006 and throughout 2007, and then again a few months ago. In both cases there were events in my life that led to states that can be described as extreme happiness.

In the first event, I was in the process of selling my business, and then finally sold it, and all throughout this time I had trouble sleeping because I was so happy. This extended throughout much of 2007 when I decided to travel the country. In the second event I finished writing a book, and for a brief period of time I felt a similar euphoria and had trouble sleeping.

I don't know much about human physiology, but I'm guessing there was an extended rush of endorphins and/or adrenaline during these times. Thinking purely scientifically, these chemicals (or other chemicals) may have been directly or indirectly involved in these experiences.

As I think through many other episodes, I can usually recall a state of excitement:

I could go on for a while, but the important part for now is that I think this may be important from a biological standpoint. If a state of excitement or euphoria can help you achieve OBEs, can inducing a state of euphoria intentionally also lead to OBEs?

As a final note, as I think back, I realize that Joseph McMoneagle stated similar things about his remote viewing projects, tat they needed to be interesting or exciting for him to be successful. I believe he stated that when things are fresh and new, such as on a new project, he has been very successful, but once things became stale, his success rate dropped off.
