What is the magic button that will cause you to leave your physical body temporarily to experience another realities in a conscious state? There are countless books and authors writing about how they achieved the out of body state. They write about rolling out, pulling up, sinking down and more.
We read about loud sounds, vibrations and people appearing to pull you out. There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of techniques and experiences written about the out of body state and it’s easy to get caught up in the technique itself.
Which of the many methods are the right ones to try?
There is no answer. There is no perfect choice. We are all very individual and what works for some will have no effect on another.
Experiencing out of body states is an ability that we all have within us. We have heard this many times before and it’s true. However, we also each have a physical brain and the brain sits right between your physical body and the real you, which is non-physical. The brain is designed to, not only beautifully run the physical body, it’s also a filter, or protective wall, to your subconscious mind. The brain can only know what is taught to it in this physical lifetime because it starts out almost a blank when we come into these lives. The subconscious, however, holds all the knowings of the real you.
When each of us decided to take a turn in a lifetime on earth, we fully understood how the physical body works and we knew that our subconscious mind (all the memories and knowings of the real non-physical us) would be blocked or filtered by the brain. Thus providing some challenge in this game of life.
So, even though you are non-physical, and you experience out of body states when your body sleeps, your brain thinks you won’t understand those experiences so it prevents you from accessing this information from your subconscious mind and shows you some dreams instead. Sometimes those dreams are not dreams at all but real out of body travel.
I am often asked which method I would recommend for out of body exploration and my opinion is that the method that you choose, whether it’s all the body symptoms like vibrations, loud sounds, and pulling yourself out, or simply focusing on a different reality with phasing really makes no difference. How fast you begin to make your first breakthroughs depends more on that wall or filter called the brain and just how long it takes to shut the brain up so your subconscious can get through. And, the very biggest reason that people don’t see results with out of body training is they simply give up too soon.
One person might find an out of body method they are comfortable with and they see results quickly. Another person may find the very same method as the first person, but months later they are still struggling to make some breakthroughs.
It’s very different for each one of us so there is no magic button. There is not one training method that is better than another. My advice is to find one method you are comfortable with, that works with your lifestyle, and stick with it. If you stay with a method long enough to break through your brain filter, you will see results with any method you choose.
And, the real truth is that not one single method is actually needed to experience out of body travel. You really only need a quiet mind so that you can change your focus to a different reality. You are a non-physical being but you are focused in this physical reality. Learning to quiet your mind is the key to being able to change your focus to experience other realms.
If you want to learn to consciously experience other realities in this lifetime on earth then find what works for you and stick with the method that you choose. It takes time to get through that wall or filter called the brain if you have built up many dogmas and beliefs. If you hold these belief traps it might take a little longer to breakthrough. However, if you are focused and determined to achieve an out of body state, it will happen. The time it takes to see success is going to be completely different for each of us.
So, there is no magic button, no technique better than another when learning to astral travel. Find a method that resonates with you and fits into your lifestyle and STICK WITH IT!
