    My Most Recent Out Of Body Experience.

    I have been having out of body experiences since I was 16.  I listened to a programme on the radio once in which the presenter had a guest on the show, and he was describing how you can have an out of body experience.  It was a very simple exercise which I tried.  That is the...

    A Brief Synopsis of My Exploration

    First of all, let me just say that it has been a long time coming for me to finally connect with others who share the amazing experience that I have lived with alone for so long. I'm not sure if I would be considered an amateur or what you would call me, so I'll just explain...

    It happened 2 or 3 years ago I think.

    I was in a house being plagued by a negative entity that made my life a nightmare for most of my highschool life until I moved. It started out being a normal dream. I think I was driving back and forth from school or something. Then suddenly I was sort of torn out of the dream...

    About a week ago, I was discussing astral

    A near-death experience is defined

    as having been resuscitated, and there were no medics involved. I had an out of body experience during a long term illness.

    Kind of. I can feel my astral body within my

    physical one at all times. When I'm stressed I feel it even more. It's a really weird sensation, to be moving and controlling two bodies at once. The worst part is I end up feeling trapped in my physical body, because I've never been able to completely separate from it.
