How To Have An Out-Of-Body Experience By Summerlander

The phase state can be induced before, during and after sleep. The following is one of the easiest ways to achieve this and also the way that I usually do it. After priming yourself with a pre-nap or sleep, one can go about entering the phase from wakefulness. This involves separation from the body...

HOW TO ENTER THE PHASE FROM WAKEFULNESS

GETTING PRIMED FOR INDUCTION:

Have a nap or sleep to prime you for the induction of the phase state later. As you wake up, you can remain still and propel into the phase from the hypnopompic state. If this doesn’t work and falling asleep occurs, you can always get up and keep active for a while in order to reduce the fatigue caused by sleep inertia. When you go back down to enter the phase, you will find that you are able to relax easily and REM atonia will soon follow. The following doesn’t have to be followed strictly but it may serve as an initial guide…

INDUCTION:

Relax:

Lie down comfortably and close your eyes. Your eyes are to remain closed throughout the induction. Relax as deeply as you can and take your time. Be patient and don’t rush it. Make sure that you are not disturbed. There are many books about the various effective techniques you can use to acquire a deeply relaxed state, but, because you have biologically primed yourself for the experience, it should be fairly easy for you to do so without having to read up on it.

Focus on something in your mind:

It could be a mantra or a familiar object (the latter does not have to be visualised to perfection). Do this as you sense that you are drifting off to sleep or when your mind starts to wander. Keep bringing your mind back to focus whenever it gets ‘lost’. Keep still and relaxed and do not fall asleep! Focus on your ‘something’ until you reach the hypnagogic state.

The Hypnagogic State:

This is the state between waking and sleeping. You will know that you have reached this state once its imagery, or potential dreams, begin to invade your point of focus. Being aware in this state is already an achievement. Prolong this state by passively watching its imagery, and, given the opportunity, jump into a dream scenario. If there are no images, then strange sounds may ensue. Listen in as you remain relaxed. You may experience paralysis and vibrations may ensue.

Sleep Paralysis / Vibrational State:

Let go of any worries relating to the physical body. The trick is to let your body ‘switch off’ as your mind is still very much aware. This may involve resisting any urges to move or scratch itches. Your body will start to feel extremely heavy and there may come a point where you will be aware of not being able to move it. Remain relaxed nonetheless and don‘t panic. The perceptions of vibrations may or may not ensue. If they don’t develop, then the sensation of slipping and falling is likely to manifest, which will either lead to an apparent separation from the physical body or a hypnic jerk. The vibrational state can be mild or strong. It can vary from tingling, warmth, and the sensation of low voltage electricity flowing through the body. Strange sounds are reported during this stage. We know that the ear converts sound waves into signals that the brain can interpret through the firing of neurons. The Tensor Timpani muscle in the ear may cause rumbling as it spasmodically vibrates during sleep paralysis, and, the perception of vibrations could be feedback from neuronic activity at this stage. The ’radio effect’ during sleep paralysis, where I have experienced many auditory hallucinations with shifting or sudden musical intervals, could be due to the possibility that the pineal gland may act as a receptor of electromagnetic signals at this point. We can only speculate this to be the function of calcite crystals found in the gland, which appear to be piezoelectric in nature. Otherwise, what is being perceived is merely a realistic auditory representation of subconscious thoughts or dream sounds. The sensation of paralysis alone may occur when cells at the pons send inhibitory signals to motor neurons in the spinal cord, thus eventuating muscle atonia, which is necessary to prevent individuals from acting out their dreams. So, what are these sounds in sleep paralysis? They can be characterised by hissing that seems to pulse in your head, sparks, thunder-like sounds, rumbling, wind, electronic sounds, a person moaning (I have likened it to a woman giving birth), ocean waves, something like a train running, a helicopter etc. - people tend to describe the same thing in different ways but the state itself can vary too. It tends to peak before it gradually fades. Vibrations are bizarre but remain calm and don’t overanalyse what is happening to you. Just act as a beholder or go with the flow.

Separation:

You can try partial separation first as practice before attempting full separation. Partial separation is optional. There are many ways of achieving a successful disassociation from the body. For example, you can imagine that the ceiling above you is a huge magnet that counteracts gravity and pulls you upwards. Alternatively, imagine yourself being catapulted or cannon-balled out of the body. Also, you can slowly roll over and out. Do this subtly and as though you are moving physically but without using muscles. It is best to start by rolling over from the head as this causes the rest of the body to follow. If there is a perceived resistance, be forceful. This movement is not imagined, it is done with intent. Once you have succeeded, you will realise that you have moved incorporeally.

What happens next?

Once you are out, explore or carry out any plans that you may have. Try not to get overexcited and avoid fear and doubt. Stay out for as long as you can and don’t worry about getting back, because you always do in the end. A variety of experiences are open to interpretation. From inter-dimensional travel, space exploration, alien encounters, meeting strange spiritual entities, visiting the living and the dead, time travel etc. etc. Remember: whatever the nature of your experience and however profound it may be for you, try to look at it from a viewpoint free of preconceived ideas. For instance, seeing a luminous being who starts singing the most beautiful melody you have ever heard does not mean that you have just met an angel. Consider all perspectives. Record your experiences in a journal. Feel free to carry out experiments of your own to try to determine the nature of your experiences for yourself.

During Sleep paralysis to me the easiest way to enter lucid dream ( or ze phase ) is to imagine a place where my lucid adventures will start, but if that does not help than i rapidly imagine many places where i can start, this way it is easier to hook on particular image you imagine .I suggest to imagine places which has as much as possible of contrast because i noticed that then it is easier to enter ze LD.

That is indeed another way of entering the phase yes. I'm more accustomed to separation though. Unless, of course, I decided to enter from dream-consciousness (DILD). ;)
