I have had what I think are OBEs but not quite sure about them. I have started using William Buhlman's How to Have an Out of Body Experience program.

If you have any experience with this program, or OBEs in general, please check in and I will ask some questions.

Don't bother asking me any questions, tho..I had one today during a nap or as I was drifting off...it just happens...not a big deal...I come right back in when I realize I'm out...
it's like ..."Stop it." Like taming a dog. "Go back inside..."

It's not something I need to do, imo.

i think OBE`s can occur .. i hope to go back to the civil war when i expire .. but i also think these OBE`s can only exist when death is expected .. it`s humanities way of coping with death .. unexpected death does not get the chance to enjoy OBE`s ..when Robert E lee passed away he was giving orders in battle ...

The experience I have had, without really trying, is that of having been somewhere different than a sleep or dream state. This happens to me several times a year I would say, and comes about randomly or spontaneously. I get jolted back in to the waking state, and that jolt is kind of unpleasant and I lose any recollection of where I might have been or what may have been going on wherever I was.

I am wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar, or have worked with OBEs to the extent that they have a smooth way back into waking, and can report on experiences from the OBE state.

I wrote about this in the religion section of this forum and I was told what I experienced was an OBE. I haven't read up on what an OBE is, so still not sure if that is exactly what I had.

When I was in high school I had no idea what an OBE was (never heard of an OBE until years later) and had no idea this is what I was doing. I don't remember the first time I did it, and have no idea why, but I realized I could leave my body somehow. I did this while awake, never asleep. I could make myself leave my body and would just kinda float (not sure if this is the right word) around my physical body. I loved doing this for some reason, and did it many times. I never traveled anywhere, maybe if I knew I could I would have, but like I said, I had no idea what an OBE was at the time. I always stayed close by. Well, one day while I was doing this and tried to go back into my body, I felt like I was stuck and couldn't. It really really freaked me out. I had to try really hard to go back in, and I did, but that scary experience made me afraid to ever do it again. A while ago I thought about trying, to see if I still can, but I'm still too afraid to.

Thanks for that. The program I mentioned http://www.amazon.com/How-Have-Out--...illiam+buhlman has techniques that are supposed to help with that but I haven't gotten very far yet.

Pretty hard for me to understand that, especially if you're awake. What happens if you are driving or something?

It would happen when I was sitting still and I did have to concentrate and think about it, so never did it while driving.

OP - why do want to do this?


I had a significant one at age 10, spontaneous, pretty common one (where you realize you see your body below and your shoulder is bumping the ceiling behind you). I have no desire to experience things like this again.
