People sometimes ask me what relevance the out of body experience has on “real” life.. Everyday, practical, physical reality Earth-life. I understand why the question is asked, and it is a good question to ask. Notably because there is indeed relevance. Coming into the clear awareness of it and thereby helping to extend it increasingly further out into the populous of this level of reality I feel to be of very great, current day importance.
It would seem I do not experience as much gravity to the Earth as some, or perhaps even most other OBErs.. While they work to set down awareness of the physical, in order to stabilize themselves in other environments without ‘snapping back’, I must maintain full conscious awareness of both—or even more environments simultaneously in order to accomplish the same.
Looking in on it from where I am now in time, the process of entering into this makes more sense. The picture is more complete. Years prior to a more total shift in consciousness I began bringing through the idea.. Speaking of it (somewhat ephemerally), penciling (somewhat remedially) images and graphs, teaching it in class while not even truly knowing -or knowing why.
When I was first awakened to the Wider Reality, the first related phenomena I noticed in my normal state of being is that I immediately could not use my brain in the same way as before. There was a decided feeling to the area where it perceptually rests, and to my awareness, but behind this there seemed to be nothing. There was no data, what previously I would have called “my memory”. I no longer had the same access to it as before. This phenomena, although felt more acutely in the beginning because it was so new continues to this day.
If there is one phenomena more common to my out of body experiences than any other it is that of rarely presenting in my current form. Generally I am either point consciousness, unassociated with any particular form, or point consciousness within the field(s) of other people, other beings, some of which may be other lifetimes and some of which may or may not be.
Prior to being able to enter other reality systems, my vision here in this one began to alter.. It was as if I began seeing something prior to the current physical appearance of people and things. I was not immediately aware of what this was, only that indeed it was being perceived, and that it set me to a molten sort of glow, an inwardly rising wonderful golden warmth. Intense, yet beautifully calm and visible to onlookers, who comment on the change through my eyes.
When I look out into the room I am in – for example – it is as easy for me to see the space, which to me is clearly composed of elemental particles, as it is to see anything else. I can see the particles -of the air, water, solid objects, there are gazillions of them but it has always been simplest for me to rest my principal attention with the space. In comparison, solid objects are much harder to keep focused on, without some degree of head pain setting in as well as a body response similar to claustrophobia. This has been true for as long as I can remember.
