Hey Guys, My name is John. I am a novice. I have had detached around 75 times. I am pretty "good" if there is such a thing, at detaching. I struggle with distance. I roam my bedroom and my house. I have only gone further a couple of times. Not to down play it or anything. I think it is amazing and I am blessed be able to do what I can. I spend most of My OBE time interacting with objects, feeling the textures, seeing what they are made out of.
I have always been aware of the paranormal. I always just assumed everyone thought and knew the same things I did. I t has been a lesson learned. I hard lesson learned.
I started this journey as a skeptic though. even though I knew of the paranormal I used to think you had to pass on to experience it. I t wasnt until i was taking a Psychology course that I decided to find out for myself. We were exploring sleep patterns. Sycadian rhythms. We talked of mental illnesses.
I decided to do experiment with sleep patterns. I did not know alot. But, I knew enough to experiment on myself. I started doing some research on people and their Lucid Dreaming experiences. While reading up on Lucid Dreaming I heard the term Astral Projection, and I heard stories of Out of Body Experiences! I thought to myself "these people are nuts. They are just misinterpreting the power of the mind!" I decided to push on, Do experiments on myself and prove that this did not really exist. At the time I wasn't really good at meditating. So, I used different frequency Binarual Beats to target different frequency of sleep states. I figured if I could get to and stay in a certain zone long enough, I could write down experiences afterward resembling everything I read online. Well after about two weeks with diligent practice. I made attempts everynight, Sometimes several times a night.
At the two week mark I had my first Out of Body Experience! I began my attempt like all other attempts. The only difference was, I sorta got to a point. I told myself "if all this is, Is a self guided meditation every night. Then I am going to just enjoy it for what it is and not expect anything." I was listening to the binaural beats,I was counting my breaths and I experienced a slow wave of warmth. It started at my toes and flowed up my body to my head. Then these waves went from slow to very fast. Almost like a vibration. At the apex of the vibration I heard a sound that can only be described as a 747 Jet Liner powering up for take off outside my bedroom window. I mean seriously ear piercing screeching! Then as quick as it came it just stopped. I blink my eyes and thought to myself "Oh no, I moved I shouldnt have moved. Now i am going to need to start over" Then I noticed something strange. I saw my room. But, it was different. At first I couldnt figure out what was different. But, everything had a shimmer to it. Like an erradescent glow! Glow is not the right word. But, I dont know of another word closer to what i am trying to say. I tried to sit up....And Rip,Rip,Rip,Tear,Tear,Tear... I felt/ heard this Velcro/duct tape type sound. I stood up next to my bed and I saw myself laying there! I thought to myself "This is one strange looking dude" I started to step away. I noticed I had no traction and I sorta just moon walked around the room for a few seconds until I got the hang of it. I moved over toward the door to my bedroom. I placed my hand on the door. I cant express enough how amazing this freaking door was. I saw the door, the door I see everyday...Like I had never seen it before. I was just flabbergasted about how much info was coming thru my finger tips. I could feel textures, I could feel layers of paint, The wood, the molecules in the wood..I mean truly amazing and I am talking about a DOOR! I passed my hands through the door several times in astonishment. Then I decide to step through the door and into my living room, I pushed through and I could see all the layers. I got into my living room and I made for the front door of my house to go outside. I made about two strides and I felt a tug on my back. It was two short. quick jerks. Just Jerk,jerk...Like a child pulling on your pant leg. But, on my back. I ignored it and continued towards the front door. Then I felt the jerks again. This time not so subtle. It was one quick,sharp jerk and one long pull. It pulled me right back into my body. I sat up with amazement. I wanted to write down as much as I could as fast I could. I knew from dream journaling that this memories slip quickly. So , I grabbed my journal and went into the bathroom. I sat in front of the mirror and wrote as much detail as I could remember. This is when I noticed one big difference between dreams and O.B.E. these memories didnt slip away. I remember this experience even now as I type! I also noticed I was having a pharmacological experience. I looked into the mirror and saw my eyes were dilated. My pupils were huge. I also felt a tingling around the back of my head and the front of my forehead. After I finished writing I decided to go to bed, even though I was excited. I had experienced a life changing event. But, still needed to be at work in the morning. Which is why I always tell people to have balance. As long as we are here we need to satisfy are responsabilites. We can spend all day, every day in the astral world. Atleast I havent figured it out yet.
So,on that night I went from being an open minded skeptic. To knowing with everything I am, That this is real....So, what now. What do i do with this gift. I have access to cosmic knowledge. But, Still need to pay the electric bill every month....What do I do? I try to take my own advice. I have balance. I work my regular day job. I run a cellphone store in Jensen Beach Florida.USA. That pays the electric bill. I also started a website ChakraGear.com. I try to bring awareness to the otherwise little known world of metaphysics. I step into the matrix. I do what I need to do and I step out. I have begun organizing free local events where people come and talk about there experiences. The money from the site helps pay for it all. I go under the guise of advanced dream techniques. It seems to be less scary to people.
I realized that people do not think the same way I do. I try to tell as many people who will listen. Sometimes at my own expense. But, I enjoy it. I know it is right.
I wish I would have found this site sooner. It is nice to know I am not alone.
I just realized how long this is.Maybe, I should have broken this message up into several posts... If you read all that, Leave me a comment. Let me know what you think.
