EXperience description:   

If I had the time I would write a book, but the information is personal and of not much interest to anyone I would have thought. However, here are a few of the experiences over the last forty-eight years.

My earliest recollection of OBE was at the age of four or thereabouts, I lived in Holland at the time, as my father was a serving member of the British forces, we lived in an apartment on the top floor of a Swiss type chalet, in Dune Veg Heok van Holland. My out of body experiences started then and always followed the same pattern on starting. I would be awake watching the ships going past the window to Rotterdam they looked beautiful at night with all the lights on. I would then get a sensation of falling back out of my body, and would find myself on the landing outside my bedroom this was an area I used to like to play in and had lots of fun with toys and other things. The first time it happened I was quite afraid as although the surroundings were familiar they were different. For example although it was night time and there were not lights on I could see very well in fact better than when in daylight, and I could go any where through doors walls nothing was an obstacle and for a small boy this was great fun. To move I only had to think I wanted to go in a particular direction and I would go. My explorations were mainly around the house and outside where I knew as a small boy my horizon and interest did not venture far from home.

Sometimes my mum and dad would throw parties for service people and I would often mingle amongst them while I was supposed to be asleep in bed. Until one occasion my mother saw me appear through a closed door and screamed as she thought I had died in my sleep. (This was related to me many years later). I Guess I was just a naughty little boy who was very nosey and wanted to know what was going on and used this newfound gift to fulfill all my little heart desired. During the period we lived there, about four years, the experiences were all much the same just me walking about the house and playing. Then I was aware of someone being with me I do not know his name but he was very nice man with blond hair and he always wore a red handkerchief tied round his neck, I know he used to drive racing cars what fun, the thing was that he also made his presence felt during the day while I was playing and if I wanted to know how to do things or what things were called he would tell me. He helped me a lot while we lived there and I will never forget him he was a lovely man.

After leaving Holland we came back to England and I spent most of my school days at different boarding schools, the OBE continued from time to time but I still did not really think them out of the ordinary I thought every one did it. But I soon learned to keep my mouth shut; children can be very cruel if you do not run with the pack. So I just kept my experiences to myself. Needless to say many wonderful things I have seen but will not go into here, as they are personal.

At about the age of seventeen I went into the RAF and the experiences changed, the falling back out of the body was replaced with a vibration in the head so sever that you would think all your teeth were going to drop out and your head explode, this in time I came to call the gate, this is an experience brought about by a life force outside my own, and it occurs both entering and leaving this state of consciousness, having passed through this gate I was taken to a place outside of the present time and different locations, these were usually to show me future events, but I must stress not in an abstract form but in reality, real-time visions, they were nearly always personal to me, and were just as if a video had been taken of the event before it happened.

A good one to tell you about happened later on in my life when I was in my forties. I had been a truck driver for many years and worked at on particular firm for about eight years. I had a real good friend Bobby Bowler he was such a nice chap would do anything for you. However one time I had this experience and was taken to a strange place with a great big cast iron fence all the way round it and two ornate iron gates that were open sat outside was a truck tractor unit not one that I had seen before as it seemed a bit space age looking but the colors were familiar they were in the livery of the firm I was working for.  The vision was etched on my brain like a photograph and I still see it to this day. I had no idea of the location of this place I had certainly not visited it before. Many years later may be about five years or so my best friend died off cancer and although I was not working for the firm by then and had not seen him for some time I was invited to the funeral. Low and behold as I approached the entrance to the cemetery surrounded by the same iron fence and gates I had seen years before and there just as in the vision was Bob's truck decked out in flowers as a tribute to him. The truck was almost brand new and a new generation of truck that was not around when I had the vision, so no wonder it looked space age to me back then.

Two years ago I had a similar vision while in Ireland building a house for a friend. I was taken to an operating room where the surgeons wore blue gowns and were busily working on someone on the operating table, they were doing something to the top of this persons right leg, there was a worry that they may loose the leg, I was most concerned but I was reassured that the operation would go well I asked who it was and was shown that it was me. I had a little lump on my right leg, which turned out to be Merkel cancer and a further lump in my groin I had an operation to remove this and a biopsy done, but at the time the thing that bothered me was that the surgeon's team wore green. So I said to my wife this is not over yet there is more to come, sure enough a couple of weeks later when all the tests had been done I had to go in and have another great chunk taken out of the top of my right leg. This time though I was not bothered the surgical team were all wearing blue gowns, and did a cracking job.

OBE are helpful and informative at this second level as I call it, and they are not self generated, I have had to many to know that for certain, I can bring about the conditions where they can occur, but that also depends if those who have our welfare at heart have anything they need to tell us. OBE at the first level are fun because you can go and do what you want, with out any restrictions of climate cost or interference from people that should just keep their noses out of my business, big brother.

They are continually looking for other forms of life, little men from outer space, when will people wake up to the fact that we have not even begun to explore ourselves yet let alone the beautiful planet we live on. To coin a phrase; "Beings of light are we not just this crude matter."

Any associated medications or substances with the potential to affect the experience?     No

It is just being at peace.

Was the kind of experience difficult to express in words? Uncertain

To be able to communicate the experience we need a common frame of reference, that we do not have. You do not know me and I do not know you, all we have is our language which at best can be ambiguous, you can not at this time see what I see nor hear what I hear. But I will do my best.

At the time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?          No

What was your level of consciousness and alertness during the experience?           Fully conscious for all of the experiences.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No factual like being a fly on the wall.

Did you experience a separation of your consciousness from your body?     Yes

I am a complete duplicate of my self only having no weight and of finer substance but have full feeling and senses. To put it in modern terms like a hologram.

What emotions did you feel during the experience?            To me this is not a life shattering experience, it is and always has been fun. Even at the earth level, but these experiences have higher levels removed from the earth plain. By that I do not mean other planets, I mean a level of physical vibration above the physical material we know in our every day lives.

Did you hear any unusual sounds or noises?           This depends on the level to which I am going. In standard OBE no but to the higher levels yes.

LOCATION DESCRIPTION:  Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or amazing creatures?    Yes

OBE are experienced from the location my body is laying at the time, so that generally involves traveling around familiar locations without restriction. Unless you have strange creatures where you live you will not see them and if you are seeing them you are not having an OBE you are more likely on a vision quest a totally different thing. So get real this is about OBE.

Did you meet or see any other beings?           Yes

Yes human beings (are you on something?) other people, out of the body communication is by thought transfer although you may mouth the words there is no sound it is the thought of the words that is communicated.

Did you experiment while out of the body or in another, altered state? Yes

I under take to go many places and see many things, but I have never had the inclination to move things or pick them up as I have learnt from an early age it is neither possible to pick up material objects up nor necessary. You can't have it both ways to be able to pass through solid matter and pick it up at the same time. You have been watching to many ghost films. However physical contact is possible when you meet other people also in OBE state.  If I say it is possible to have an intimate relationship with another traveler, you work that one out.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Uncertain

Do you not understand that OBE is real time not future. For future experiences you have to go to a different level this is done with help from those you can not see call them guides if you want or helpers. And yes to many factual things that have been proved to me over time. But as to their content, factual as good if not better than a vido of the situation before it happened. If you are looking for proof that you can understand then you are out of luck the content is personal, and not up for debate. Read one of my experiences Bob the truck driver. However factual to me is not proof as you would want it I do not have to prove anything to you or anyone, what I know to be true to me has got sweet fanny adams to do with you. As I say to all who are skeptic you will find out when you leave your material body, I hope that will be through OBE and not death.

Did you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they different?          Yes

Enhanced all of them particularly sight, eg you can see in the dark as if it were full day light with a blue tint.

Did you have any sense of altered space or time?  OBE is real time, higher levels yes time and space.

Did you have a sense of knowing, special knowledge, universal order and/or purpose?    Yes

Personal. Do you really expect that meager beings such as us can say when in OBE take me to your leader, or show me a cataclysmic event to prove you exist? Get real.

Did you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?             No

Hello we are dealing with the inner self why should physical barriers have any effect? However I have been asked not to do something by others I have met while OBE, or not to go to a certain place and the reason is usually conveyed at the same time, and being a reasonable person I comply. In most cases when this occurs it is to protect us from danger, remember that although we do not have our physical bodies, we do have our full mental capabilities, and something that is horrible to see in OBE is as real as being in the body, if not more so. If while walking you were to come across a mutilated body, would you not try to prevent on lookers, children, women folk?

Did you become aware of future events?       Yes

Yes when in the second stage of OBE, visions have been as good as being a fly on the wall. In the first stage of OBE you will no more see future events than you would if you stepped outside your front door for a walk.

Were you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?       Yes

Returning to the body is voluntary, however you can be snapped back into the body by something happening to your body while you are out. Like inability to breath, coughing, a cat jumping onto your lap or being touched or otherwise physically disturbed.

Did you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience that you did not have prior to the experience?         Yes

I have always had them but higher OBE helped me to understand them, and eventually use them. I have been a practicing healer for many years.

Did you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?   Yes

Life changes all the time and we are the sum of our experiences. At all levels.

How has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices? Career choices?       Life is a river you can do nothing but follow it, be mindful that there are many other souls upon this river and it is not your place to hold up anyone on their course, where possible help them to reach the great sea in as good a state as you would like to reach it.

Has your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?         Yes

Life changes all the time and every experience changes us to some degree.

Have you shared this experience with others?         No

Not in full even my family do not know the full extent of my experiences, neither will you. It is learnt from an early age to fit in with the group, many thousands will never have any idea of the meaning of life and its wonders until they leave the body either OBE or permanently.

What emotions did you experience following your experience?  Peace love contentment elation.

What was the best and worst part of your experience?      Passing through the gate when young was painful but now in later years I am used to it.

Is there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?        It is a pitty some of our leaders so called educated people do not have these experiences may be the world would be a better place for us all to live in then.

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         No

Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience?               No

You do not know the subject, some of your questions are just shots in the dark. Life is never either or, No, Yes, Uncertain, No responses, are not good enough. You will never prove to anyone who has not experienced these things, that such things could be commonplace for everyone. Sadly our development of this side of life is further back than the Egyptians, we as a race have failed to understand what it is all about, and rely on technology to solve all things. It is time for a partial destruction of the world to loose the computers, mobile phones, and other technology, and get back to cave man status then perhaps we could try again with the human soul in the ascendant.

Please offer any suggestions you may have to improve this questionnaire.    You are mixing up to many things if you want to know about OBE that is fine but do not confuse OBE with vision quests. OBE is a broad term to try to define to many things; your knowledge on the subject makes it impossible for you to direct questions in the right area. It is like saying here is a ship, and showing someone who has been blind and now has sight, a rowing boat, all ships are the same they float on water. But keep trying you will get there in the end, if not in this life time.
