Astral Projection, Lucid Dreaming, OBE

Purple Realm – Did I reach an Astral Heaven?

At around 4am I awoke from a vivid dream where a major London newspaper decided to run a free advert promoting an app I had created a few years before. I was just running through that dream in my mind in order to remember it. Once I had captured the main details, I decided to attempt an out-of-body separation by wiggling my astral limbs. After a few minutes I stopped as it was clear it wasn’t going to work. However, rather than feeling defeated I had this odd feeling that I could just separate by pure free will. This isn’t something I can normally do, but in that moment I was oddly confident that I could just separate on queue. I simply imagined I could separate as I had already known how but just needed to remember.

Instantly I was catapulted out. I was now floating in the blackness again. I tried to use the affirmation of “Clarity Now!” “Take me to the Moon, NOW!” to improve the situation and get me out of the dark place, but nothing would work.

After a while I started to fall ever so gracefully. I could now see large cubed blocks that were forming three-dimensional steps going down into the darkness. Each cubed step was made up of equal amounts of much smaller cubes.

On one of the steps I now became aware of a large box. It was the type of box you would store multiple reams of paper in. I floated closer to the box to take a good look. Within the darkness the paper box became extremely vivid and detailed. I zoomed in really close and took in the breath taking detail of this new inner reality. As an observation, in real life you wouldn’t be able to inspect an object with such clarity and at such a close distance with the naked eye, it would become quite blurred and strain your eyes.

The box had the words “Paper Solutions” as the main company logo. The company branding was designed in blue, white and green colours. It was a nice clean design that also used 3D embossing techniques to bring the design out slightly.

After inspecting the box I became frustrated that I was imprisoned in the dark place. I really wanted to get out into the Astral and start exploring more beautiful places.

I then started to float much higher. I then became aware of a vivid blue square window breaking the darkness. The window showed a beautiful blue summer sky beyond the glass. For some reason I just bounced off the glass. It wouldn’t allow me to pass. I tried really hard to get through but it was as physical as a brick.

As I moved towards the glass, I could make out wooden beams outside, which gave me the impression I was looking at the structure of a roof. After quite a few attempts, something happened and I was suddenly catapulted through the window and straight out into a breathtaking scene.

I was now floating above a wooden building situated in the middle of a country park. Words really can’t justify how beautiful a scene it was. The structure was quite low; it had black wooden slats going down one side of the building. It reminded me of a clubhouse you might see at a quaint cricket ground. This place felt very familiar. I couldn’t place it in physical reality. For reasons unknown I felt I had been here before.

Directly in front of the clubhouse was a field of vivid green grass that rolled off into the distance. To my right, the grass rolled on for about 100 meters. Just beyond that was stunning trees and flowers all glowing in vivid purples, pinks and reds.

I didn’t have great flying control. I was forced ever so gently down nearer to the ground. I then studied my hands to help maintain the experience and keep the experience vivid. I also affirmed “Clarity Now!”

I then decided I wanted to move towards the trees to get a better look.

I gently hovered along about a meter above the ground. I was now floating beyond the grass and through the trees with no ill affects. I then quickly turned around to review the scene. I could now see the wooden building in the background. It was then that I noticed it also had the beautiful vivid purple/pink trees behind it as well.

As I was taking in the view, I then spotted a group of joggers running across my field of vision in the distance. The atmosphere resembled a hot summers late afternoon. The sun wasn’t too high and it wasn’t too hot, it was perfect.

I also became aware of the sound of horses. I couldn’t quite locate where they were. As the experience progressed more elements were coming into focus, initially joggers and now the horses.

I then started to become aware of my physical body. My belly was rumbling. I was now in some kind of dual awareness as I started to feel all the sensations of my sleeping body. I was now worried the experience would draw to a close. I started to look at my hands again to help maintain the vividness. This time, however, my hands were wearing gloves. I tried to pop the fingers of my right hand, through my left palm but it wouldn’t go through. The scene was now starting the fade; it was as if the sun was now setting very fast into darkness. I could feel tiredness wash over me. After a few seconds I was sitting up wide a wake in bed with a smile on my face.

I grabbed my iPhone and went down stairs to note down as much as possible whilst it was fresh in my mind. Even after typing this up many hours later, the experience has stayed with me all day. I feel I have perhaps touched a little piece of heaven.

Letting Go! – Dream to OBE Conversion

Last night I had another small OBE, this experience converted straight from a dream. I still have more experiences to write up going back to 9th of February 2016. I will be interjecting new experiences as I go.

It’s also been 15 days since two other experiences I had on the 26th of March, which I also need to write up at some point.

I was worried that was I trying too hard. I got to the point where I was making attempts every night and putting a lot of pressure on my sub-conscious to deliver. I decided to Let Go and make attempts a few times a week to see what would happen. I’m still writing down my dreams everyday and updating a database of any conditions that I can use to analyse with later, such as diet, meditation practices, life-style and well-being etc.

In terms of diet and life-style this experience definitely bucked the trend. I did meditate during the day for an hour before my mum turned up to come out with me for the day with my daughter. I did a visualization of a London bus. I used an additional technique to touch and feel the experience. I’m not great at visualization when fully conscious, the touch element really helped bring the meditation to life. Afterwards I did spinal breathing followed by a deep I’AM meditation.

After visiting our local town we had a small fish and chips in our local fish shop. In the evening I ended up having another Indian meal and a couple of drinks to spend time with Laura my wife. It was a welcome down time to a very busy working week at home against the backdrop of half term where juggling work and having the family around can be a real challenge, especially when one of the web servers I manage, decided to play up and cause me to work very late.

Surprisingly, against that backdrop, I just wanted to relax and Let Go on Saturday night.
I went to bed around 11pm. I had four OBE books by the side of my bed that I had found earlier that day in a cupboard I had cleared out earlier. I used to run a spiritual book library at a local spiritualist church many years ago and wondered if I had any OBE books archived up there. To my delight I had four books I could read at some point. They were now stacked on my bedside table.

Throughout the night I had many decent dreams. I set my intention on awakening to remember them for my journal. In one dream I was talking to one of my friends about OBEs when I suddenly said, “Am I dreaming!” This suddenly catapulted me straight out of the dreamscape into a tunnel. My subtle astral body was now in full motion flying through a void. I was now moving very fast, however, I couldn’t see very much. I said “Clarity Now!” I still couldn’t see much apart from vague shapes and colours. Due to my initial surprise of finding myself in the OBE state, I wasn’t prepared on a goal. I was worried that if I didn’t think of anything soon I would exit the experience and just wake up.

The only thing that popped into my mind was my last trip-out to Hadleigh castle. Without hesitation I said “Take me to Hadleigh Castle in 1360!” With that I was instantly transported to the castle in its full glory as it may have looked in 1360. Personally, I feel I hadn’t really maintained this experience properly. Although I had projected my consciousness out to view the castle as it was in 1360, I do feel what I saw was more a personally constructed projection of the castle with many overlays from my own thoughts. I had great fun flying around the castle taking in its magnificent size and it’s opposing presence high up on the hill.

Today the castle only has one main tower standing and two other corners that have lost much of what they resembled. Now I was seeing how these remaining structures fitted into the overall design as it may have looked. I really got the impression how popular this piece of heritage would be today if it were still intact.

After a while the experience started to become more a lucid dream. I was now inside a virtual reality CAD piece of software. I was controlling the scene very much like a computer model. I was changing the colours and textures of the castle to see what was most likely. I pixelated the textures, made them smooth, zoomed right out and back in again. I even changed the sky and surrounding scenery all with my mind. Looking across the Thames estuary you can normally see Kent. I had now unconsciously overlaid the modern city of London with its many tall buildings as a background against a red sky as the sun was setting.

Conclusion

I feel this experience started out as an OBE from a dream but after projecting to the castle the experience was more likely a Lucid Dreaming experience. It was very thought responsive, perhaps initially created by the great unconscious that already has a blue print of the castle etched into its memory. With the power of our minds we can construct anything we want with just thought alone. This is the complete opposite from a consensus reality experience where the structures are firmly stable and fixed by a collective of minds that inhabit these realms.

I was very appreciative if this experience as it confirmed to me that Letting Go, can be all that’s needed to succeed.

Final OBE on the 7th Jan 16 – OM Mantra Manifests a Rising Sphere

This is continued from my 4th experience from the 7th of January 16.

OBE 5

After returning to my body for the 5th time on the morning of the 7th of January 2016, I managed to roll-out for the last time that morning. I just imagined myself falling out of bed to my right by pretending to roll-out for real. Instantly the vibrations returned, I was then transported yet again into another reality.

I was now in a setting with a large panoramic view of sky around me. There were people below me getting on with their lives. For some reason I wasn’t interested them. I decided against doing anything trivial. I wanted to experience something much more spiritual. I started to voice the OM meditation where you hum the beautiful OM tone. My intention was to hopefully rise much higher into a more subtler spiritual dimension. I had to voice the “Clarity Now!” affirmation a few times as suggested by William Buhlman to help keep my awareness from slipping back into a dream or back to my body. The affirmation is used to keep everything vivid and your awareness extremely sharp. It’s amazing how powerful the subconscious is to suggestions at this state of awareness.

Voicing the OM mantra instantly materialize a large sphere. I had a strange split awareness.  I was both the sphere itself and an observer watching the sphere from the outside. Essentially, I was in two places at once. On each OM in-breath the sphere floated higher and higher. Once my in-breath had run out and I needed to breath in again, the sphere would fall way back down again. I quickly voiced the OM mantra again, to my delight  the sphere would quickly bounce back up again and returned to its previous position and then continue to rise much higher. I repeated the process over and over. The sphere was literally bouncing up higher and higher.

Eventually we came to a plateau, I sensed this was some sort of dimensional ceiling. It wouldn’t allow me to go any higher. As I was contemplating the end of this experience, the scene then changed. I was now transported into a new scene via an open-bed goods lift. The lift conveniently took me through the invisible barrier. I then elevated only a few meters or less where I was warmly greeted by two people who helped me off.  The sphere was now gone. I was now back to a single awareness as my normal human self.

I was now walking through an old style office (Not very spiritual). The type of office setting you might find in an older New York style skyscraper.  In the office I became aware of  two older ladies wearing pink coats, I sensed they very much managed this place. As I walked through, I noticed a desk to the side of me with one of the pink coat ladies and a few other people scattered around them. They seemed friendly enough. I felt guided to continue walking straight ahead. I then came to another desk with another older lady wearing a pink coat. She asked me who I was and told me to sign my name on a piece of paper. It looked like a visitors log. After signing my name the scene faded and I found myself back in my body.

On awakening, I decided I didn’t want any more experiences that night and make a conscious effort to remember all five experiences. I then fell asleep. After having these five vivid experiences throughout the night, I still felt refreshed and fine the next day.

What was this experience all about? Was I not yet spiritually evolved yet in my OBE pursuits to enter this next subtle realm? Perhaps I have much more work to do on myself before climbing higher. The journey continues…

OBE Data

To help assist myself and others, I’m keeping a detailed daily database of my experiences along with many personal attributes that may hold the key to triggering them more and more in myself and perhaps others. I will be writing about these further down the line once I have learned to induce them consistently, and able to maintain the experience for much longer periods of time.

To put this into perspective, I started this diary on the 8th of December 2015. Each day I’m writing down every dream I can recall. As a result my dreams have become more vivid with dream characters passing on knowledge or guidance. Anyhow, from starting this journey on the 8th of December 2015 where I first started writing down my dreams, it took another 30 days before having this first five experiences on the 7th of January 2016. During those 30 days I was trying different techniques.  You can read about the technique I used below. After having this first “Carrot and Stick” experience I feel I’m now having to work for it and develop myself spiritually through meditation. The next experience that I will write about didn’t happen for another 33 Days. I feel there is a real Goldilocks zone of having just the right amount of desire/intention and trying too hard which can block the experience. There is a certain amount of letting go involved. Attempting it every night can put too much expectation in the beginning as failure can have a real detrimental impact on the subconscious. I feel it’s better to not put too much pressure on oneself and perhaps try a few times a week to start with. I’m still writing down my dreams every day.

Technique used

Two nights previously I had come across the website www.obe4u.com from the resources at the back of “Invistas of Infinity”, a fascinating book by Jürgen Ziewe about his vivid lucid dreaming and OBE experiences. I had been attempting them since Novemeber 15 without much success.

My first two attempts on Sunday the 5th and Monday the 6th of January 2016 yielded no results. I kept waking up with the intention to separate but found myself too awake and aware. I quickly fell back to sleep. I also had too many disturbances from my dog, Betsy who kept barking.

Everything changed on the morning of the 7th of January 2016. The previous evening I had read the free ebook from obe4u.com again. The instructions stated that the practitioner should set their alarm for six hours after going to bed. When the alarm sounds, go to the bathroom to drink some water and set the intention to wake up in the next cycle of awakening. Once awakened, one should then attempt to leave their body with aggressive intent. If that doesn’t work, cycle through one of the many separation techniques.

Before going to bed I had in-fact set the intention to wakeup but chose 5 hours, I didn’t use an alarm clock and trusted I would wake up. As you have to have an action plan, I set my action to go straight to the mirror in the hallway and then fly around the Earth. I also set my intention to awake again should I fall asleep or return to my body. That way I could try again.

After waking up five hours later, I did in fact go to the bathroom to drink some water but decided to go the toilet in case a full bladder hindered the experience.

I then set my intention on awakening again to enter the phase and separate from my body.
I then went straight back to bed and swiftly fell back to sleep.
