Wow, that is amazing! Scary too.
You might check out the book Lucid Dreaming by Stephen LaBerge. His method is easy, and could reduce some of your distress.
Hi SidKemp, I'll google it now. So he discusses techniques to enable you to enter a lucid dream? This morning coincidentally I had sleep paralysis but I was unable to get out of my body. I tried for ages but all I could feel was 'strained vibrations'
Yes, he teaches a very simple and often effective technique for lucid dreaming. If that doesn't work, email me through my profile. I have some methods I haven't published yet.
Not enough characters below. Ponder? Home Files - PUB: 07/11 ED Source: Elsevier's Cortex states OBE experiences linked to neural instabilities in the brain's temporal lobes & to errors in the body's sense(s) of itself clinical & non-clinical
TSMOG - not fully following you. But art, spirituality, and religion have all been pathologized by psychologists and psychoneurologists at one time or another. Yet there is a beautiful non-pathological side to healthy, creative experience.
Thank you sidkemp. tsmog is okay with me. Regarding the statement "not enough characters below" is a reference to size of the comment box. The rest is the source of the provided information and the opening of the conducted studies summary. Thanks!
Have you written a hub about it? That would be an interesting read
TSMOG: Found it! Short link to the reference: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/07/11071... does assume out of body experience is pathological. Can be for some. Creative spiritual growth for me.
I agree Sid, emphatically with some as for some. However, one who did experience the whatever experience may ponder. I have pondered since 1978. I am still pondering. I ponder Isiah and Jeremiah much. I just add to with today, as offering a known.
TSMOG - Ponder and journey! Journey and ponder!
I mean an experience or a dream about an experience. Some people are unable to believe in something like that, which is why I used the word dream, to make the question accessible to everybody.
Dreams viewed from above generally not same as OBE. In my dreams, sometimes I view from outside, more often I'm in my body. Some say fear causes the distanced view-from-above. OBE is different: We travel in an etheric body to other places & meeti
Actually, term "Out of Body Experience" is specific and not the same as "prophetic dream" or "angelic visitation" or "angelic communication" or "Divine communication / gift." As taking a walk is not talking to a person, so OOBE is not communication.
Thank you for sharing your story. Technically, this is a near-death experience, not quite the same as an out-of-body experience. I hope your memory limitations are not too disabling.
I realize the distinction Sid, seems counseling of variance since 1994 offers a little. At least variance is of those whom was of counsel. I ponder a question? Are you sharing with that experience I was of presence of the body upon that bridge?
In my worldview, TSMOG, I would see your experience as valid inner events that you partially remember, & #2 as valid external event partially remembered from within. If you wish to discuss more, esp. use of meditation, email me via link on fan pa
That is really interesting! I agree with SidKemp, but I also think that a near death experience is an outer body experience in a way!
Sid, I am happy with as is today for me. Seems the common thread of the statement is as "remembered" That is the question offering subjective as the view. For Grace, Ponder. Are suicide attempts a near death experience? Difference, as is conscious?
