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.

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.

OBE 4

After returning I set my intention to roll back out again. This time I rolled-out for a fourth time.  I immediately set my intention to find a spirit guide to talk to. I then shifted to a scene where I was floating along following a man wearing a brown caretaker’s coat. He was a good 40 feet in front of me. I got the impression he didn’t want me to come any closer. I was anchored at a distance just following him along the street. I then followed him through some gates into what appeared to be an industrial setting. The scene was far from spiritual and appeared just like a routine earthly place.

I asked him for some knowledge.

He gave me a small piece of information that I could verify later related to the construction of the physical universe and the nature of energy on the physical plain.

He said energy could be both hot and cold at exactly the same time and space.  These initial trips out didn’t last very long. I don’t know if it was my thought to checkup on the information that propelled me back or something else.

Everything faded once again and I returned back to my body. In the morning I did a Google search for “What can be both hot and cold at the same time” and came across a quantum physics article that described exactly that. It was part of a new experiment using a special kind of chip that proved these results. Article here. 

Was this pure coincidence. Had I somehow sub-consciously read it somewhere. I hadn’t read any quantum physics articles as far as I’m aware. My intention was for knowledge, something I didn’t already know to help me validate whether these trips out are pure fantasy or  something much deeper, have I found my answer?

Oddly enough when searching for a Caretaker image to use for this post, who should I come across but Dr. Who wearing a brown caretaker coat. The master of T.V time-travel and navigating the physical quantum universe.  It’s worth noting that I don’t watch Dr. Who and consciously at least wasn’t aware of that episode or series. I haven’t watched Dr. Who since Matt Smith played him. It’s interesting that a potential guide would manifest as the Caretaker.

OBE 3

After returning I set my intention to roll back out again. This time I rolled-out again and suddenly appeared in a street with many houses littered with Christmas lights. It was nighttime and most people were asleep. I noticed a white van, which gave me a bad feeling. I felt the occupants were burglars looking for a place to rob. For anybody reading this thinking it’s just a dream, I had full waking consciousness, I was more alive than you can imagine and thinking exactly as I do when fully awake. I had full freewill to do what I wanted, it wasn’t a vague dream state but as real as the physical world we live in during the day.

I followed them by floating along. They didn’t notice me at all. They got out and made their way to a house. A normal semi; two-up, two-down family home.

I carried on floating, observing them. I then had a thought to see their energy. After a few seconds I could suddenly see these energy streamers going into and out of them, much like the film Donnie Darko where you can see where people’s intentions are focused by these floating streamers. Their energies were focused on a house. They were trying to break in by climbing up into an upstairs window. I then had a strange idea to blow my energy into their streamers. This caused them to keep falling over or fall down. It was obviously having an affect on stopping them. The scene then faded and I returned back to my body.

What was this place? It seemed exactly like the physical world. There was nothing dreamy about the experience.

OBE 2

After returning to my body after experiencing my first ever OBE, I was able to quickly roll out again. I instantly set my intention to find my Dog, Betsy who normally sleeps by the side of our bed.

I instantly found my dog. She immediately sensed me and started playing with me trying to catch me with her paw. I got the feeling she knew who I was. I must have appeared like a ball of light due to the way she was trying to catch and play with me. I was using my hand to play with her paw. She was following all my movements. It was wonderful. I don’t know if that was a lucid-dream thought-form Betsy or if she really did sense and play with me in the current consensus reality.

After a while the scene in my bedroom started to shift. Betsy was still there, however the scene started to shift through alternate realities. The ‘moment’ was the same but the version of reality shifted ever so slightly. The room changed in subtle ways and my Dog shifted into different small dog breeds right in front of me. The last breed I remembered was a Black and White dog. I couldn’t place the breed. Everything faded once more and I found myself back in my body.

Hadleigh Castle – Small OBE
Astral Projection, OBE

Hadleigh Castle – Small OBE

I decided to follow the exact same procedure as last night which yielded a small OBE.  I’m trying to find a routine that induces them constantly. Then I can start to work on the quality of the experiences after that.

Around 5pm I retreated to the garden studio where I meditated for approx. 50 minutes.

My Meditation was made up of these steps:

1. I did a visualization exercise, mentally drawing a red London bus with my mind and walking around it.
(As I start this quest I’m literally third-eye blind. Totally blank, with no imagery. I can sense but not see. I’m hoping this technique will help train my brain to relearn this skill.)

2.  I did five minutes Spinal Breathing.
3. I did 40 minutes doing a deep I’AM meditation.

Before bed

IC212/001; Hadleigh Castle; Reconstruction drawing of the castle as it appeared c.1370, after Edward III’s rebuilding campaign

I made a very firm commitment and intention (by being excited and enthusiastic) to wakeup  in 4 hours (I also set my new vibration alarm clock for 3am). I mentally set a goal that when I exit,  to visit Hadleigh Castle back in 1360. I had visited there during the day with my family. The site is mainly a ruin now as the building materials were sold on back in the 1500s. I wanted to see if I could induce an OBE back to its glory days.
The idea was sparked after seeing a picture of the former castle on a tourist board at the Salvation Army site.

My alarm goes off

My alarm went off at 3am. I went to bathroom as duty calls and had a drink of water. I then moved to the spare bedroom and reaffirmed my commitment to wake up after each natural sleep cycle and enter into the OBE phase. I set my goal / intention to visit Hadleigh Castle in 1360. I then did a visualizing exercise to prep my astral body by visualizing my kitchen sink and doing the dishes for a bit to help shift my awareness elsewhere (A tip I acquired at a recent Todd Acamesis workshop)

My steps:

1. I set a strong enthusiastic intention to wake after each natural sleep cycle and not move. I would then cycle through various exercises pretending to be moving my astral limbs with my mind. My movement choices were: rubbing my hands together for 5 seconds in front of my face, swimming my arms and wiggling my arms up and down. I would repeat these steps 4 times.

2. I set the strong intention to go to Hadleigh Castle in 1360.

3. I then moved back to my original bedroom and put my ear plugs in and my eye mask back on.

Small OBE Again

I got back into bed using my previous successful attempts sleeping position. I position myself on my left side looking at the wall in a fetal position. My hands clasped near my face. Why this works, I have no idea but it’s the most successful for me. After falling asleep, a short time later I awoke. I started cycling through the phantom limb movements as I did yesterday by pretending to rub my hands together in front of my face. Pretty much straight away I felt very strong vibrations rolling through my body with the high pitched sound in my ears.

I immediately detached from my physical body and rose up slightly. I then made the strong affirmation “Take me to Hadleigh Castle in 1360, Now!” With that I felt a very strong sense of movement, at this point everything was still very dark and vague. As I shot further up, the only thing I could see within the darkness was the bed and my body parked in the position I had left it with a light blue glow around it.  I then started to move very fast and instantly arrived at Hadleigh Castle.

However, there was a small problem, it wasn’t the solid bricks and mortar Hadleigh castle. I was floating outside the walls of a 3D version of the illustration shown above and pictured on a tourist board at the site. I felt a pang of disappointment that my intention must have somehow been vague. I had to laugh at myself for the joke being played on me by either my subconscious or the universe.

I tried several techniques to stabilize the experience and see the castle in it’s once physical state. My awareness did shift and for a moment I did get a glimpse of the actual structure but before I could maintain the experience I was shot straight back into my body.

Afterwards I tried several techniques to detach again by rubbing my astral hands together but nothing seemed to work. I just remained in the glorious light feeling that cocooned me and eventually feel back to sleep.

I did wake again after having a very vivid dream where I was giving a talk to extended family members about my experiences and how some people can end up experiencing dual conscious awareness. Eddy, a very strong no-nonsense character in real life and extended family member was present, he once spoke to me (In the physical) about his own interest in opening his third eye from an inspirational book he had read.

In the dream state he was showing me Japanese herbs that apparently helped the process. Unfortunately for me I couldn’t read the Japanese symbols. I have completely forgotten them now. Perhaps a confirmation from my unconscious that my journeys are starting to have a much deeper impact on my awareness.

 

Quick OBE to the Void and Back
Astral Projection, OBE

Quick OBE to the Void and Back

It’s been a while since my last vivid OBE where I  experienced the vivid Italian looking consensus reality.  I’m still very much in the learning stages.  I need to find one technique, ritual or state of mind that constantly works.

My current routine has been disrupted this week with the start of the Easter half term and having my family around. I normally meditate in the early evenings in my garden studio.

I decided to retreat to bed early and meditate for an hour. I stuck in my ear plugs and put on my eye mask to block out any disturbances. The meditation was good. I practiced a technique called Spinal Breathing for 5 minutes which I had read about in Multidimensional Man by Jürgen Ziewe. With this in mind, I downloaded  Spinal Breathing and Deep Meditation by Yogani about a month ago to learn these techniques for myself. The key here is to meditate at least twice a day and don’t get hung up on  experiences as the meditation to quieten the mind is the goal. Yogani explains that experiences spring from this in time.

My Meditation was made up of these steps:

1. I did a visualization exercise, mentally drawing a red London bus with my mind and walking around it.
(As I start this quest I’m literally third-eye blind. Totally blank, with no imagery. I can sense but not see. I’m hoping this technique will help train my brain to relearn this skill.)

2.  I did five minutes Spinal Breathing.
3. I did 40 minutes doing a deep I’AM meditation.

I then got up and made a very firm commitment and intention (by being excited and enthusiastic) to wakeup  in 4 hours (I also set my vibration only alarm clock). I mentally set a goal that when I exit,  to visit my mirror in the hallway.  I would step through it as I have done before and travel to a small island near Australia to visit my friend Dean who was traveling there in the physical.

My alarm goes off

My alarm went off at 3am. I went to bathroom as duty calls and had a drink of water. I then moved to the spare bedroom and re-read the steps outlined at OBE4U.com as they worked wonders when I first started this journey.

My steps:

1. I set a strong enthusiastic intention to wake after each natural sleep cycle and not move. I would then cycle through various exercises pretending to be moving my astral limbs with my mind. My movement choices were: rubbing my hands together for 5 seconds in front of my face, swimming my arms and wiggling my arms up and down. I would repeat these steps 4 times.

2. I set the strong intention to go to the mirror once out-of-body and then find Dean.

3. I then moved back to my original bedroom and put my ear plugs in and my eye mask back on.

Small OBE

From this point on I had lots of intense almost vivid dreams. In one dream I was in a corporate office work environment. I noticed my colleagues were wearing their pajamas. I laughed at them and said “Why are you wearing your pajamas?”. They quipped back that it was a charity wearing pajamas day. I said “It looks like you’re Lucid Dreaming!” Now, with that I should have been catapulted into full waking consciousness but for some reason I didn’t. It was a major dream sign to exit.

Anyhow, all was not lost as a little time later I woke up for real. I was lying on my left side with my hands clasped together, almost as if in prayer under my face. I felt very much awake and felt disappointment that I hadn’t entered the OBE state as I had set my intention to exit straight after awakening. With no time to loose I start cycling through my astral moving of limbs techniques. The first one I tried was the rubbing of hands. Immediately, I started to feel the strong vibrations shooting up and down my body with the high pitched sound in my ears.

Without hesitation I said “Move to Mirror, Now!” I instantly felt my body start rising up and then movement away from my bedroom. At this point I still had my eye closed, I worried if I opened them too soon, I might open my physical eyes as I had done before.

After a good amount of floating movement, I assumed I was now at my hallway mirror. I opened my eyes expecting to see the mirror but instead it was still very dark. I was hovering in some kind of void. I said “Clarity Now!”, “Awareness Now!” but these did nothing to improve the situation. I then started to fall very fast in the darkness. I eventually hit a floor very gracefully. My view changed from darkness to lots of sky-blue shapes drifting past my inner vision. Shapes that didn’t make much sense to me.

Eventually my OBE state started to fade and felt the draw back to my body. I remained as still I could hoping to induce another trip out. I could still feel the subtle vibrations and ringing in my ears. I tried some firm affirmations “Move to the Kitchen Now!” but to no avail. I also tried to visualize my awareness in the kitchen too. After a while I decided to fall back to sleep and try another attempt.

By the morning I only had the one small OBE but I had at least six vivid dreams with high quality interactions with dream figures.  I have recorded these in my personal note book as I want to focus on real OBEs for this blog .

First Ever OBE – 7th Jan 16

First Ever OBE – 7th Jan 16

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.

OBE 1

I suddenly woke up and felt very relaxed but was conscious that I had physically moved and was now on my side. My first thought was it’s probably not worth trying to separate, as you’re not meant to move a muscle. However, I remembered reading the night before to not miss any opportunity. I decided to try rubbing my astral body hands together; I immediately started to feel the tingling sensation and decided to just will myself to roll out of my body and then levitate. To my surprise, with eyes still closed I started to feel the sensation of floating higher and higher. I then remembered my intent to go straight to the mirror. With that, I pretty much instantly appeared at the mirror; everything was very vague and not very clear at this point.
I then decided without much thought to leap straight into the mirror. I instantly landed in my garden; although it looked similar it was very different too. At this point everything was still very dark and vague. I then remembered to start rubbing my hands together and to stroke the grass to help bring everything into vivid focus.

I could now see long blades of grass everywhere and oddly enough scattered magazines. For some reason I had no interest in looking at them and decided I needed to do something more exciting.
I then willed myself to take off and fly. I arose very quickly. At this point, whilst in the air I started to feel every part of my body to check my form. Everything seemed to be the same, if not more silky and smooth like an infant’s younger skin. Everything faded and I then returned back to my body.

Hello Astral!
Astral Projection, OBE

Hello Astral!

Welcome to my personal journal of OBE and Lucid dreaming experiences. Although they are different terms, I very much see them as they same thing, simply labels for the same inner experience of the mind and the greater consciousness. I chose the out-of-body term as all my experiences so far have had the motion of my body floating away from my physical body.

Even in my  dreams where I have become fully conscious and immediately leave that dream environment,  I experience a strong floating away of my body before appearing in another location.

The Lucid Dreaming term is probably a much safer label for people to deal with. You have to open your mind a little bit more to accept that our consciousness can perhaps really leave the body and travel into very solid consensus realities with stable personalities and structures; far beyond the fragmented experiences of dreams.

As I venture forward on this journey I seek to understand the differences and report them back. Please bear with me on my inaugural adventure as I seek the answers for myself.

Why have I created this blog

I have created this blog as a tool to encourage my own sub-conscious to really get behind my desire to learn and experience these wonderful voyages of the mind and beyond.

I also hope in some small way that this also inspires others to dip their toe into this subject and record their own experiences.

I give thanks to the people who have  inspired me with their lectures, books and videos.

My Journey really started after attending the IMOA Conference in Southend-on-Sea back in Nov 15, where Todd Acamesis gave a small lecture on his personal experiences. This ignited a passion in me to look deeper and start practicing for myself.

Researching Todd led me onto other teachers listed below.
Todd Acamesis, Jürgen Ziewe, OBE4u.com,  Yogani, William Buhlman et al.

The wonderful thing about having an OBE is that it opens up the inner teachers within all of us. We can truly seek and look for the answers ourselves. Out of all the spiritual practices I have looked into during my life, this has been the biggest enabler to give me a good kick up the spiritual backside and DO SPIRITUAL rather than READ SPIRITUAL.

Bon Voyage
