John J's Experience
I am as your site describes, a frequent flyer. Since very early age, when they used to absolutely terrify me, to now, when I can induce them practically at will. I have had to many OOBE's to remember.
I don't mean to sound as if I'm boasting, but I have always thought, it was a normal thing, that anyone could achieve. Actually, I still believe that.
It is a matter of having control over your own thoughts. Meditation helps, but also, watching your own mind as a habit throughout the day. Think your own thoughts, not someone else's, corporate, media, or authoritarian, brain-washing thoughts.
So, OOBE, my experience. Always, first phase accompanied by sounds, vibrations, voices, pressure, the usual. Followed by, second phase, simply being out of body. Here, I have met deceased friends and relatives, spiritual guides, traveled to physical places, astral places, and explored past and future lives. I have also, watched astral movies, been to educational classes, done soul rescue and counseling.
The one thing a I always try to do, is plant the thought of where or what I'd like to do OOB, before, I go through preparation.
Otherwise, when you're out and try to decide where you want to go, this requires logic, logic requires brain, brain physical, wham you're BACK! And you were only just getting started.
Always decide where you want to go, BEFORE, Astral experience.
Second, there is nothing, I mean NOTHING to fear. If you want to fear something, then you will certainly create something to fear. But it can never harm you (unless you want it to but this again is only in your mind).
You cannot, be possessed, this is an impossibility. You have created you, and only you can be you. Because you are your own creation. By this very definition, nothing but you can possess you.
The quicker the OOBE community realizes this, the better for everyone.
Create your own demons, for fun for a bit of excitement, for educational purposes if you wish. I have, and some of them have been pretty scary!
But remember once again they are only there because you have allowed them to be.
Well, I've shared my thoughts.
Nice to get it off my chest.
Happy travels, to whomever reads this.
And Bon Voyage!
