An out-of-body experience (OBE) can be extremely frightening, or it can be enlightening and even pleasurable.
The thought of somehow being out of one’s body brings to mind the possibility of dying, or perhaps losing one’s mind. What is happening just does not make sense, at least, according to what we have normally experienced throughout our lives. On the other hand, some adventuresome individuals consider and OBE an opportunity to explore areas of their existence.
The term out-of-body experience is relatively new. It replaced other terms including astral projection or soul traveling. Apparently, many triggers can induce an OBE including lack of sleep, drugs, and the experience of coming close to death. Although this may seem strange to those of us that are less adventuresome, they can also be intentionally brought about through various means.
William Buhlman in his book “Adventures Beyond The Body” describes how he discovered the process of OBE’s. He believes he has developed a system to safely bring about an OBE.
Many of us have experienced some of the sensations that are often associated with OBE’s including being jolted awake, hearing buzzing sounds, feeling vibrations, and flying in a dream. A reliable experience associated with OBE’s is seeing through closed eyelids.
There are many people that welcome the OBE’s. There are also just as many, if not more, that are very fearful of them, and want nothing to do with them. Which category do you fall into?
