The Realm Of Your Out Of Body Experience

Updated on May 11, 2011

Out of body experience (OBE) is an experience that typically involves a sensation of floating outside of ones body and in some cases perceiving one's physical body from a place outside ones physical body. Research has shown 1 and 10 people have had an OBE experience so its more common then you think. A lot of people dismiss them as dreams, so that percentage may actually be higher. Over 85 percent of outer body experiences happen while, resting, sleeping or while ill, drugged or in a comma. During an out body experience, your physical senses shut down, when this occurs a whole new realm has opened up to you.The theory of OBE goes all the way back to ancient Hindus and medieval civilizations all over the globe. There are even chapters in the bible that mention Out Of Body Experiences. Since the beginning of these times man have tried to induce OBE's  and have been successful. Research has shown there is a magical time frame that needs to be utilized in order to have a successful induced OBE. The highest peak is while your slowly awakening, while your consciousness flickers between sleeping and awakening is the best time to try and induce your own OBE, this is a crucial time frame, of course you will need some practice.

Here are are few Tips to help self induce Body Temperature, coolness is the key, if you get to cold or to hot it may become an issue and interfere with your chances of having a successful OBE. Its better to be on the cool side, if your way to warm you will get comfortable and fall completely asleep. Body Position You want to be at a 45 degree angel while sleeping, elevate your top half just a little with a few pilliows, lying flat on your back is not good, you will probably be to comfortable and you may fall asleep, remember you need to catch your self at that important stage between sleep and awakening. Lights make sure the lights are dim, you may turn off all the lights and light candles all over the room, or complete darkness with a night light. Time Believe it or not most people report the morning hours as the best time for an induced OBE. There are three important corner stones to tell your getting close to an induced OBE. Heaviness You will feel a heaviness like a heavy blanket is covering you. White Noise you will hear sounds almost like static. Vibration almost instantly that you hear the white noise your body will vibrate, feels as though your arm has falling asleep from you lying on it too long, you will feel that sensation through out your entire body and then lastly you will become detached and float above your body.

Now that you are in your Subtle Realm where will you go? Who will you visit? Will you travel to another world or universe, maybe visit a lover who's scorned you. Many people have reported just flying to one end of there block and back just to experience flying. Many people experience feeling intense love and seeing amazing intense fluorescent colored waves lapping across one another as they step into the subtle realm. Some people claim to hear whispers as they enter the realm, most people get freaked out as they float above there bodies lying there lifeless. How ever or where ever you decide to travel be safe and have a nice journey.

      @Denise I had an OBE when I was around 12 years old, I wasnt afraid, and I only flew from one end of my block to the next,a few times,flying felt so good, but I was indeed to scared to leave my block. But you right, no vibration and no white noise, I was reading that only happens when your trying to induce one. Me personally, I wouldnt want to induce one, but I know other people who would like to :)

      Ms Cherry-interesting article. It evoked a few questions for me:

      1. Why would anyone want to experience an OBE? It seems that separating from the physical body would be very frightening.

      2. Do you have OBE or have you had an OBE? If yes, did you 'travel' or stay in the room?

      3. Is it a norm to hear the white noise or is this Hollywood hype?

      I was about 16 when I experienced my first OBE that I was aware of. I may have had one at 14 when I visited Stonehenge without previously knowing about it. I did NOT experience white noise or vibrations. And, it was also in the middle of the afternoon on a warm, summer's day.

      It was a very cool experience and I remember being fascinated with watching my body on the bed, curled up in this 'fetal' position. I also did not have any fear. I remember my oldest brother coming to the door, knocking and opening it to tell me something, seeing me sleeping and closing it again. Later, I told him about it and he was nonchallant and said, "you just had an outer body experience". He's two years older and at age 18 was into a lot of things that I had not heard of before.

      Thanks for sharing this article-very interesting.
