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.
