Trying Very Hard To Have An Obe


When I was a child, (many moons ago lol) I remember having an OBE. I was very young and I was playing in the backyard with another little girl. I remember her telling me that she was dead, at the time I didn't think much about it. I do remember abruptly being back in my bed. I would tell my parents and they just blew me off, I'm sure they thought I was a child with a huge imagination When I was a teenager I had visions. Not often, and often times I would see or know what was going to happen right before it happened, Except once when I saw myself getting in trouble with my father and later kicking myself in the backside for not paying attention and continuing what I was doing. I talk to my children (who are now young adults) very openly about these things, and they both have a variety of things that happen. My daughter is especially attuned to her dreams. When I became a young adult I never had visions again. I do remember having a sleep paralysis episode a few years ago and after reading more about those, I understand why now, it was rather frightening. At the time I was going through a divorce.

I have been trying very hard to have an OBE and it doesn't seem to happen for me. I often feel the tingling in my extremities and ears but I either fall totally asleep, I get startled and wake up or it just doesn't happen. I try to do it at various times of the day. I don't know what I am doing wrong. I meditate daily. I try to balance my chakras very frequently. I am up for any advice anyone can give me. Here or even feel free to email me.

You do not have to be very tired to induce sleep paralysis. If you practice at it, you can induce it whenever you want when you lay down. I know because it was very difficult for me to leave my body at first. I finally figured out the best time was when I was in that asleep but not asleep mode. Those times happen either right before you wake up or right before you fall asleep. Eventually, I managed to learn to keep in that mode for quite some time, because for me it was the best time for me to dream and remember them. Hope this helps you somewhat.

Thank you, I will give that a try. I guess I will have to try to wear myself out.

The best tip or technique I can give to you to induce an OBE is to trigger a sleep paralysis. To be able to have a sleep paralysis try sleeping very tired with your back flat on the bed. Once you are in sleep paralysis which is almost similar to OBE only that you are still in your energy body, try to float. To prevent yourself from going back to your body instantly never think of your body or any thought of going back otherwise it will be a snap and you will be pulled back.

Thanks AnneV,
I actually have visited your sister site. Lol... I have to look into the hemi-sync cds and the books. It will be a slow process secondary to being unemployed at the moment. (Im so poor I can't afford to pay attention lol).
On a serious note, for the longest time I couldn't even remember my dreams but lately with meditation and telling myself I *WILL* remember my dreams, it has actually helped and I have been remembering them more often. I know I'm not afraid but I think the vibrations startle me awake at times. I'm trying to be patient and let things just flow. I just so want to get more in tune with my higher self.
Thank you again for the help and trust me I will email you if needed lol and if you think of anything else feel free to email me also GottaLuvvme [at]

You're certainly doing many things right. The problem is, so many of us have grown up with "adults" telling us this kind of stuff is our imagination so we atrophy over time, unless we have a naturally lose hold over our astral form. But just so you know, your "dreams" are disguised astral projection experiences. Sure they can be weird, morphed, etc., but so too is your average OBE. Form follows thought very quickly in the astral which is why this is so.

If you have time, scan my sister site ( and look at the beginner's guide. If I were to give some suggestions, I'd look at picking up a hemi-sync cd (I started with the ones from the Monroe Institute), and pick up some books (my favorite are by Robert Monroe and William Buhlman). Maximize sleeping in. Have you ever slept in so much you get really groggy? This is a great projection point. And if you feel those very strong vibrations, don't allow fear to take control of the experience, which I know is easier said than done.

Feel free to write me if you wish as needed at eclecticraven (at) I've been doing this for years and can help where needed.

Best to you.
