OBE & Virtual Reality

A group of neuroscientists have induced out-of-body experiences for the first time, using virtual reality and an experimental set-up.

Paranormal Phenomena Experiment

Michael Shermer travels to Laurentian University in Sudbury, Canada, to strap on the "God Helmet" in neuroscientist Michael Persinger's lab that duplicates out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, alien abductions, and other paranormal phenomena.

OBE Experiment

Carol attempts an out-of-body experiment in the Bob Monroe Research Lab at The Monroe Institute. Paranormal guidance was a PSI component of her astral travel or quantum non-local experience. Such out-of-body (OBE) experiments demonstrate the transformation of human consciousness through the use of the Hemi-Sync process.

OBE & Astral Projection

Mastering the art of Astral Projection, OBE's, is not an easy task at first. But with a little training and practice, anyone can do it. Astral Projection changes the way you look at life, or reality, forever.

Keep in mind, it may take longer for some and a shorter amount of time for others. It just depends on your focus. Train your mind and your body will follow. This is the first of this series that I will be posting. It will help get you started in teaching your mind, natural muscle memory.

James Randi Theory of OBE

Skeptic James Randi lecture excerpt from a 2 hour lecture at Cal-tech in 1992.

Randi talks about an experience he had which was very similar to many of the Out of Body Experiences that people claim to be super-national/paranormal.

  OBE: Out-of-Body Experience

What is an Out-of-Body Experience? Does it really exist? How does it happen?

An Out-of-Body Experience (OBE) is the feeling of floating outside of ones body and generally being able to float around at free will. Sometimes during an OBE reports say that the person can see their own physical body.

In some cases an OBE can happen quickly and spontaneously and in other cases it happens during a trauma of some sorts being either physical or mental.

An Out-of-Body experience is usually associated with a Near Death Experience in many cases which may provide some evidence that we are all truly energy. (Souls which are energy inside a physical human form)

Definition of an Out-of-Body Experience

  • The dissociative experience of observing yourself from an external perspective as though your mind or soul had left and was observing your body.
  • State in which the spirit of a person travels to the astral plane. It is said that people can in some instances travel to other locations on the physical plane. Also known as OBE, astral projection or remote viewing.
  • A sensation or experience in which ones self or spirit travels to a different location than their physical body.

“In order to experience everyday spirituality, we need to remember that we are spiritual beings spending some time in a human body.”

— Barbara De Angelis quotes
(American researcher on relationships and personal growth)

Astral Projection

Astral Projection also known as Astral Travel is a form of an Out of Body Experience which separates you from your physical body and allows you to travel in the astral plane.  It allows the person to travel to the higher realms in which you can usually see your physical body from above and allows you to travel freely.

Scientists generally dismiss OBE and Astral Projection completely since they believe there is no evidence that they can occur and that there is no theoretical basis that these events are even remotely possible.

According to many studies about 14% of the population have claimed to experience Out of Body Experiences or Astral Projection.

Altered State of Consciousness

Altered State of Consciousness (ASC) is a condition that is much different then a normal waking beta wave state. It is the name used to describe the change of ones mental state and is usually temporary. It is also referred to "Altered State of Awareness". It is described as when someone loses sense of ones body or with ones normal sense perceptions.

An altered state of consciousness can come about accidentally through, for example, fever, infections such as meningitis, sleep deprivation, fasting, oxygen deprivation, nitrogen narcosis (deep diving), psychosis, temporal lobe epilepsy or a traumatic accident.
