Getting Started with OBEs
How to Succeed
Practicing OBE can be a harsh process. Many people may practice this for almost a year, and only achieve one or two OBEs. Even though it is a thoroughly rewarding experience, there are a few things I have tried to greatly increase success rate from this phenomenon, and feel they should be mentioned to possibly benefit you in future endeavours. The first mistake I notice people make is trying OBE at night. When practiced at night, there is a much greater risk of falling asleep, which is one of the most common problems when attempting an OBE. It’d be a better idea to do it during morning hours. Upon first wakening, do whatever it is that you do when you first get up, like Brush your teeth, take a shower etc. Then 10 minutes later attempt an OBE. Another thing that is worth trying is attempting an OBE in a sitting position, or in a chair. This further lowers the chance of falling asleep because you are not in a normal sleeping position. You can also try coming up with methods on your own to keep from falling asleep. Be creative.
When trying to achieve an Out of Body experience, I have found that being comfortable with your environment is key. Don’t try to OBE in a room with the TV on and a loud fan running. I also suggest that if you have a cell phone, to turn it off (You will thank yourself later). It is much easier to OBE in a room that you are familiar with that is quiet than a room with a bunch of noise. Keep your pets away from the place you are trying to OBE. There is nothing more annoying than your pet jumping on you when you are a few seconds short of succeeding.
