Out Of Body Experiences


I have published several posts about Out of Body Experiences (OBE) and Near Death Experiences (NDE) and it's interesting when readers leave their own experiences.

The noticeable thing about OBEs and NDEs is that people recalling them are always sure that these aren't simply dreams. They are very real. As to whether this proves life after death is up to individuals to decide.

Here are a couple of reader's experiences - anonymous as requested.

"I personally had a similar experience (an OBE) and had not heard of anything like this prior to now. There was a time in my life when I was mired in the experience of the greatest emotional pain that I've ever endured. At the height of my body's suffering, I felt 'myself' float up and behind my body.

For a few minutes, I floated there looking down on the back of my head. I remember the immense peace that I felt while floating. My thoughts during this experience where that I had no idea my body was capable of such an emotional extreme and I was marvelling at the event. After my body calmed down I naturally migrated back in to it.

From my experience I might offer that perhaps the spirit is incapable of occupying the body when the body is experiencing extreme pain. And that once the body is again an available vessel, the spirit will return to its natural state."

"I recall having my drink spiked, followed by a blur and then waking up in hospital (or so I thought) in a critical condition and witnessing my mum and her friend at my bed side. The strange thing was that I felt serene and peaceful but here is the twist in the story. I wasn't awake as I was essentially in a coma with drips and all sorts of things attached to me.

When I saw my mum the next day I apologised to her for the grief I had caused everybody and we spoke about the night before and I will remember till the day I die the look on my mother's face when I told her that I remember seeing them both at my bedside the night before. To which she replied, "You must of dreamt it," because apparently I was completely out of it, and she told me that I was in a coma when she had visited me the night before.

I have since tried to do this again but I am unable to do it as it feels very strange and I guess fear plays a big part."

  1. Intriguing stories. Robert Monroe wrote a fantastic book on this subject, Journeys Out of Body, after he began experiencing OBEs and then began to induce them. His exploration is fascinating.

  2. My OBE came about because of extreme emotional pain; questioning any reason why I should remain on this plane. For an unknown (to me), reason, I didn't need to kill myself... all I had to do was leave... if there was no other reason for me to stay; can't explain further.
