The out-of-body experience (OBE or OOBE) is something I began
experiencing at a very early age. It was an extraordinary,
mystifying & exhilarating experience for me to say the least.
Over the years it has become a life-changing experience for me.
Can you imagine being a young person flying outside my body? Not wanting my
grandmother who was sending me to my room for discipline to know what I
was doing? As a young person it became my window of insight into
the world around me. It allowed me to know more about my true
potential and I was able to explore the universe around me.
As the years have unfolded for me I have come to realize that each of us
moves in and out of our bodies during certain times of the day &
night. Some of us do this during what we commonly refer to as day-dreaming. Some
of us do this when we are extremely tired. We come home from a
trip after driving for hours, lie down on the bed and find ourselves
still behind the wheel of the car or floating outside our bodies
looking down at our body on the bed.
As I began to understand what OBE was and that not only I was being able
to do this but I found in my research others were doing it too.
It has been one of the most exciting journeys of my life. It
has moved me to search far beyond my own small limited self into another
dimension of life. In my opinion, consciousness is one of the greatest
frontiers of all of us who have entered into this life stream. Each one
has an opportunity to discover for ourselves this wonderful gift that
God has given each of us to experience.
When one experiences the "out-of-body experience" the
experience is one of an altered state of consciousness. It is
almost like being in a dream state and yet the OBE is experienced as
real. It often seems even more real and vivid than
normal waking consciousness.
For me it was a state I perceived from a point in space
apart from my physical body. And yet I experienced a perception of
sight, hearing, and even sensation independent of my physical body.
I had unlimited mobility. While in the out-of-body state I was able to "travel"
to any location desired, with an unlimited speed.
I also experienced no limits in the time dimension. It was during such
OBE that I
would meet up with my Guide/angel and sometimes I would see others (whom I did not know) participating in things they were doing. More
often then not they seemed unaware that I even existed. And then at
other times I would actually be experiencing an inner action with these
people during the time of my travels.
It was during this time I often had direct communication with these
other life forms. At times I found myself not only in the earth's
dimension but would find myself in locales associated with the
afterlife. I visited both the Heavens & even the inner worlds
inside of the earth itself. I also seemed to understand the
thoughts of those around me. There seemed to be no physical
limitations for me during these experiences.
My writing of this material is to share with all of those who think that
what you have experienced may not be real or normal. But let me
assure you OBE is normal and occurs fairly commonly, but is not commonly
recognized for what it is.
