I met a
friend on the internet Nita. She said she was an advanced astral traveler and
natural psychic. I had reason to believe she was telling the truth (from another
mutual acquaintance). So I asked if she could help me out of body. She said she
probably could but I might not remember it. We made an appointment. I lay in the
bath meditating to music as deeply as possible for 90 min. Then went to bed and
listened to a "hemi-synch" tape to help get into as deep a trance as possible.
When I was just barely conscious. I started having lucid dream...but was aware I
was still in my bed. All of the sudden I felt this electric current pass thru my
body and I seemed to lift up like a puff of smoke. I could not see anything it
was very foggy. Nita met me and was talking to me. She had a very deep voice
for a woman which I had never heard before. There were three other women's
voices with her. They were all talking with each other. Strangely although I
could here the pitch and tone of the voices very clearly, I could not understand
the words, and the whole place was filled with a thick gray fog so I could not
see them. The voices sounded like regular voices not at all like "thoughts".
Nita was instructing me in a voice I could not understand so finally I decided
to leave and willed myself back in my body. I immediately got up and wrote down
the experience. The next day I called Nita and was shocked to hear EXACTLY THE
SAME DEEP FEMALE VOICE. Without telling her my side, I asked her what she had
seen. She said she had "energized" my astral body and then after it lifted out,
she guided me to an astral level that was quiet and filled with fog, but was a
good place to talk. I asked if others were there. She said yes there were three
other women. One was a ghost who was going to incarnate soon and was a little
nervous about the birth experience. The other two were other astral projectors
she knew. It was exactly what I had heard. I was stunned! But was ebullient that
I had proved to myself there really was some sort of spirit realm.
remember any other sounds.
Any associated medications
or substances with the potential to affect the experience?
Was the kind of experience
difficult to express in words?
At the time of this
experience, was there an associated life threatening event?
What was your level of
consciousness and alertness during the experience?
Extremely alert, although I was in
a deep trance to start with. I got more and more excited as the event went on
and was totally clear and lucid about what was happening
experience dream like in any way?
No not at all dream like.. I never
heard real conversation in my dreams that sounded like real voices, there was
also a feeling of rapture and mild ecstasy. However, there were dreams going on
in part of my mind that had nothing to do with the OBE. I was at the opera with
my wife in the dream. But fell paralyzed to the floor of the opera. I was aware
of the dream, and of the OBE, and of being in bed all at the same time.
Did you experience a
separation of your consciousness from your body?
What emotions did you feel
during the experience?
I felt rapture, mild ecstasy. I
felt a little nervous that there were three other women there in besides Nita,
whom I did not know personally. I wondered just a little if it might be a group
of witches..:-) I got to know Nita very well soon after and have known her now
for 7 years. She is the best astral traveler I know of and does it at will at
Did you hear any unusual
sounds or noises?
Well I described hearing Nita's
deep voice and the voices of the three other women.
Did you recognize any familiar locations or any locations from familiar
religious teachings or encounter any locations inhabited by incredible or

and the other three women. Nita also described the meeting perfectly well on the
phone. So it was mutual. I never have met the other three women.
you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience
that could be verified later?
you notice how your 5 senses were working, and if so, how were they
Sight was blocked by fog. I heard sounds and voices clearly...but could not
understand them. I had a feeling of ecstasy...but no tactile feelings other than
tingling and electricity.
you have any sense of altered space or time?
Clearly...I floated up like a cloud into some bizarre foggy otherworld. I was
also still aware my body was in bed and also of a dream going on at the same

Uncertain I was just overjoyed that I had proven to myself that a
spiritual dimension existed
you reach a boundary or limiting physical structure?
I passed into the fog and remember coming back into my body.
you become aware of future events?
you involved in or aware of a decision regarding your return to the body?
I went back to my body as I was a little wary of the three other women. Also
Nita was giving me commands. Later she said she was instructing me on how to
stabilize my OBE. But at that time despite my joy, it was a little unnerving so
I closed a door on them and was back in my body.
you have any psychic, paranormal or other special gifts following the experience
that you did not have prior to the experience?
Yes Well I heard the voice of a person (Nita) that I had never heard before
and it was exactly like I he4rd later on the phone. So clearly this was
you have any changes of attitudes or beliefs following the experience?
Confidence I had a soul separate from my body.
has the experience affected your relationships? Daily life? Religious practices?
I became a
little obsessed about talking about it and studying up on OBE's etc.
your life changed specifically as a result of your experience?
became certain Of a spiritual existence beyond the body. Which makes me happy
when the world seems a tough place.
you shared this experience with others?
laughed, but my family all believed. I don't share this at work of course for
obvious reasons a scientist can't be having that kind of experience..:-)
emotions did you experience following your experience?
was the best and worst part of your experience?
The best was
hearing the voices. The only negative was a little worry. Why so many of them.
there anything else you would like to add concerning the experience?
turned out to be an "astral Master" and actually attends an astral club that
seems to resemble something like a Masonic lodge. Nita has gotten me out of body
several other times..but none were as clear as the first time. However, I do
believe I remember part of them.
Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life,
medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?
I've had 3 other partial OBE's where I was able to remember part of the
experience and compare it with Nita or the real world. One was in the dental
chair when I had taken Valium...but it was also very fun. I floated around the
dental office looking at the people. Most people were as they were in life but
two of them (this was in a dental school.) looked completely crazy with spinning
eyes and ridiculous clothing including my dental student. I must admit that both
of those people seemed somewhat "manic" when I got back in my body.
the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively
describe your experience?
