Whats an OBE Really Like?

Postby diddyp333 » 20 Jan 2012, 02:17

I am reading Robert Monroes book at the moment "far Journeys" im also reading "Conscious universe" by Dean radin. Both are very interesting..i find myself searching for something at the moment and cant really say i believe in any of it however there does seem some strong evidence in Deans book. After getting through about half way of Far journeys i wondered what it actually feels like to have an OBE. Whether it feels absolutley the same as real life or not...ie when im conscious i can feel myself breath,Touch things etc i know i am awake and that this is real! I wondered if anyone here has ever had an OBE what was it like and did it feel exactly like being awake! I am struggling to see whether it is like lucid dreaming or not..I myself lucid dream all the time and am able to change my dreams whenever i want..for instance if im being attacked by something suddenly i think to myself right i need to be able to defend myself and suddenly i have Neo from the Matrix style abilities..I always know its a dream though...I did have one dream though where i was following a strange Bearded man who kept running away from me who then went into a house. We were round a table and suddenly all these (for want of a better word) spirit people or ghosts kept appearing ..It really freaked me out and felt very very real although i still knew it was a dream..anyway sorry i digress! So I hope to hear if anyone has had an OBE!

I've known some form of Astral Projection my whole life it would seem and from what I've been told, OBEs is quite similar just a bit more intense. The problem is however, the majority of folks that THINK they have had an OBE or that they really do travel on the Astral plane, don't! It's more akin to a dream-state and what the Rosicrucians refer to as "Mental Projection" which is more like combining our sub-conscious memory with the imagination. It can be a very powerful technique over time, when it comes to personal healing and even bringing aid to others, and it is likewise a gateway skill that can lead you towards true Astral Projection and/or Bi-Location, but such is not a daily event.

If you are curious about this sort of thing I'd recommend that you learn about Hypnosis and specifically Self-Hypnosis as well as a thing that was popular in the early 70's known as the Cristos Effect and/or Alpha Thinking. These techniques will allow you to come quite close to an OBE in a safe manner. I emphasize "safe" in that the New Age culture is filled with nut jobs that will take you for a small fortune if they know you're curious and willing to pay as you go.

EXAMPLE: When I lived in Southern California long ago I was teaching an Astral Projection workshop based partly on the same lecture notes written by Richard Webster coupled with some of my own experiences. I charged (and still charge) $45.00 per person for this 4 hour class. On the other end of this scenario was a New Age jackass based in Beverly Hills that was doing the same exact workshop (using the Webster notes) who was charging over $700.00 a head. . . the irony is, he always had students because dumb animals think if you pay more it has to be closer to the real thing :? The greater irony is that Richard Webster, a noted International author and personality in the New Age world, charges the very same tuition I do though his reputation alone would warrant a higher price.

Thanks for the reply Craig...so am I to assume that with astral travel...it really does feel real and not dreamlike!? I will check out the self hypnosis thing although my need to investigate doesn't mean I want to give it a go myself...after reading about it it seems kind of a scary thing...although skeptical for some reason I don't think I could bring myself to try and have one as you never know it might work and then I'd shit myself! The paranormal intrigues me but I have to say as sceptical as I am and as much as I read that says there is no evidence....you just don't know!...am I brave enough to try and experience it all myself...probably not coz you just don't know! ....do I want there to be psi...a life after death...obe etc...he'll yes who wouldn't! anyone who says otherwise is Lying! For now I think I'll just keep on investigating and reading until I'm brave enough to see!

Initially it will feel like a dream but the more you practice and the more you do to support that kind of work, the more real and validating it will become. . . the first clue is a Clairvoyant-like ability when it comes to seeing people doing things, possibly hearing them in time (Clairaudient) and if you are really lucky you will eventually be able to touch and move things, possibly even whisper in the ear of someone in the room.

There is a famous story about a group of soldiers rescued from a Vietnamese Prison Camp the night prior to the start of the Blanket Bombings. Several of the prisoners still tell stories about the night "aliens" came and rescued them, but there is a back story to this involving a man named Anthony Penera and his study group -- They did an exercise that took them into the Astral and allowed their etheric form to be solid enough to help fifty some POWs get away from the danger -- a camp that was devastated by the bombings the very next day. I don't recall the title but one of the soldiers involved wrote a book about it, under the still held belief that it was ET & Co. in that Bro. Anthony and his team do not believe in exploiting such things for the sake of reputation and PR, it's against their ethics, I guess you could say.

............................................................................................
Please forgive me if this is completely off the present topic, I am at present going through something, which yes I have been through before, BUT I am looking for some insight or help or advice.
I started looking on the net for clues about what is going on with me for the last two and a half days, and I ended up on this site with posts from last year where you were talking about, dream warning events! and also the fact that you have had many years of experience on the subject, so I decided to join the site to be able to share this with you in hopes you may shed some light on this, because it is very disturbing, and, well I cannot keep everyone in my little family (my son, my daughter, and myself) locked up for protection!
It is a smell that will come and go like a breeze, and sometimes it will last a week or a few days, last time it lasted 3 or more weeks, this had started around October or November of 2008, and on December 5th I fell broke every bone in my ankle and now have steel in there!
I am 47 years old, all my family which I grew up with have passed on, all I have left are my children, when I was 15 years old, my dad passed away and home after a long period of suffering, a few days later I could smell this horrible smell, (but it is not something you can smell like an orange or perfume, if I stuck my nose right in front of an orange or in a cup of hot chocolate for example this smell overrides it! sometimes I feel that if I stuck my head under water I would still be able to smell it it is hard to explain!
Anyhow, a couple of days after my dad's passing, I could smell this and I asked my mom at the time if she could sniff around me and tell me if she smelled something funny or off! she could not smell anything, but this sense of smell was so strong, I thought I would be sick, it would come and go like waves, I told my mom about how much it was bothering me, and even told her I thought it was my dad, she told me to ask my dad to bring the level of the smell down because I could not handle it, and believe it or not, it did become less strong.
As the years went by every time I got a cold and was sick the smell would come, about a day or two into my cold, and as the cold left, the smell left as well! it always felt like my dad was there comforting me.
In 2008 a couple I know came over for the first time to our home, and while they were here there was this smell, the same sort of symptoms but NOT the same smell! this lasted about 15 minutes, then my dad's smell came rushing in and was as strong as the first time I smelled it! and my God, this lasted for about 3 weeks! I even went to the church to pray for help I was so scared, the smell persisted for about 1 and a half weeks after this, and a month or so later I broke my ankle. it does not seem like a big thing to break bones, but in my case I was stuck in bed, could not work, my children had to take care of me for at least a week or more, but all turned out o.k.
At the place where I broke my ankle I must say it was night time, it was snowing, and I fell directly in the parking lot of a gas station just in front of the ramp on the sidewalk were cars come in to gas up. If I had not crawled my way back to the front of the store, I may have been run over easily by a truck because they would never have seen me, I still have nightmares about that moment if I think about it too much, so I do not!
Day before yesterday, I could smell something very faint smell but I did not associate it to anything special, then last night around 8:00 pm I knew something was up because this smell was not my dads smell, and NO from what I can tell my dad has yet to show up because this is not his smell, not exactly anyway! and I am scared and do NOT know what to do
Please help me if you can
Thank you!
Caroline

Would just like to also add that up until the year I broke my ankle, my dads smell only showed up when I had a cold, so this was out of the ordinary! and at this moment I do not have a cold, so what should I think?
Caroline
and thank you for any help you could give for sometimes I feel I am the only one who feels this way (do other people get these smells as well?)

in hopes of somewhere finding in a thread someone who could perhaps help me figure this out, because there are different topic's in each one and I simply thought it would be a good idea! this is scary for me, and by no means a joke! who ever replies, if you do not think you can help, or do not understand what i am talking about, Please do not say anything, because the smell is still there!
