Have you ever experienced the sensation of hovering out of your body or departing from your natural body and watching yourself from outside of it? This exceptional sensation is known as an out-of-body experience. One out of five individuals experiences this experience. People who have undergone out-of-body experiences (OBE) remember that they are often naive of the sensation of being outside their physical bodies. Oftentimes, they are asleep or on the verge of sleep when an OBE occurs. The sensation of hovering outside the body frequently does not last longer than a minute. typically by the time the individual realizes that he is out of of his physical body, he is being pulled back into his body by an mysterious force. In many cases, an out-of-body experience occurs to people who are ill, exhausted from working, or undergoing severe emotional stress, this specific sensation has also been reported by people who have gone through a near-death encounter, hypnopompic vision, magical spell, or are under the power of psychoactive drugs. An out-of-body encounter is unique toward each individual. There are some who encounter a religious epiphany following an out-of-body occurrence, while others leave with a feeling of serenity and love. Some come out of the encounter feeling concern as well as apprehension. Nevertheless, some go through an out-of-body experience and go away with no spiritual discoveries. While the majority out-of-body experiences take place spontaneously, it can also be induced. Here is a how-to guide to achieve an out-of-body encounter: Get at ease. Spontaneous out-of-body experiences often start with a feeling of shaking or vibration. To obtain to this juncture, one needs to relax. Lie down in a relaxed arrangement as well as loosen your clothing and remove jewelry or accessories that can make you feel uncomfortable while lying down. Make certain the room temperature is comfortable. Breath through your mouth. Concentrate. Once everything is entirely set, you want to concentrate on reaching the hypnagogic state, which borders on sleep. You want to go deeper into this period until you reach a place where you lose all realization of your body and senses. Close your eyes and gaze into the blackness, concentrating on a dot above your forehead. Reach for the vibrations that are at the spot above your head, plus make a mental move of pulling these vibrations into your head. As soon as you have reached this point, your body will begin to vibrate. The aim is to control these vibrations into pulses, although for a first-timer, this might be difficult to execute. Experts in out-of-body experiences put forward reaching out for an article that you can grasp, something that is normally out of your reach. You need to touch the object, allowing your hand to pass all the way through it while stopping the vibrations then bringing the article back toward you. Lifting out. This takes place when you are prepared to leave the physical body. To accomplish this, you need to start thinking about weightlessness and the feeling of hovering upward. Others get to this condition by "rolling" over the bed, as though getting off it, and twisting the body until you face up and float to the ceiling. There are many other strategies one can use. With constant preparation, lifting out will turn out to be a lot easier.

While I feel the article provides a basic summary (a starting point) for those wishing to understand the OBE Experience, it is by no means a complete "guide to mastery". Nonetheless, I still wish to credit the author and would gladly link readers to more info if he would supply an active link by updating his article at AB. ---Old Trance! Enjoy.
