Why is OM so powerful in the OBE/Lucid state?
I have had a break from attempting OBEs/Lucid dreams since the start of the school holidays, with so many commitments with my family and my routine shot to bits.
Anyhow, last night I wanted to try and invoke one again. I get worried I’m loosing the ability when not practicing for while. I’m still meditating daily, although at different times at the moment.
Last night I meditated before bed. I had run a 5k a few hours earlier, practicing for a 10k run in October. My body felt really relaxed and tiered; which is the perfect state to be in.
I woke about 1:30am. Went to the bathroom, drank some water and then set an intention about five times to awake (Or be aware at least) after each natural sleep cycle. The intention is to attempt an exit by wiggling a toe, arm etc,
Anyhow, I did awake some time later and could feel myself moving at great speed through the mattress. For quite a long time I was in darkness and spinning. I could feel a very strong pull on my lower chakras as experienced on a recent journey.
Eventually with no real direction or location in mind, and my calls to locate to the Moon or bring clarity, I returned back to my body disappointed. I then woke up and went back to the bathroom. After going to the bathroom once again I then noticed things were odd, the layout wasn’t correct. I then realised I was in a false awakening. I placed my hand straight through the wall.
This then capitulated me again travelling at great speed through the darkness once again. Even though it was dark, I made a conscious effort to move through the walls of my bedroom and outside. Although I couldn’t see anything. I tried commanding “Clarity Now” but it wouldn’t work.
I then had the idea to meditate within the OBE/Lucid state and started humming OM. The effects were instant. Suddenly the sound of my OM became a very powerful omnipresent sound thundering off all around me. I was consumed by it’s power. Then it was as if somebody had switched the lights on. I was now on the pavement outside, it was nighttime and dark but I could now clearly see two creatures sitting right next to me. As my vision developed I could see that one was a black Panther and the other creature was a strange looking plump reptile of some kind. It looked pretty friendly. I’m not sure what it was though. Suddenly I was transported back to my body again in bed.
I then left once again and this time I was transported to a place where I was sitting with two other Astral travellers. One guy was about 60-65 years old with a slight white beard. The other guy was bald and shorter, perhaps in his 50s. The bearded guy was showing me a blue bracelet he had made that aided in his travels out. He said it helped reinforce the intention of entering the Astral realm when wearing it during sleep. I noted that I should make one too. We joked that our bodies were still sleeping back in bed. I told them about my daily commitment to meditation. The bald guy said he didn’t meditate at all and in fact he still smoked and drank quite a bit but could still get there.
After a while I left again and returned back to my body. I spent a few moments to remember the details and then let the experiences go to fall into a deep sleep. I had some good dreams for the rest of the night and awoke in the morning with complete memory of the experience.
The power of the OM during the experience is still with me. I think we underestimate the power of the OM during meditation whilst awake as we don’t always witness its great power.
Have a great day and happy travelling Ian
