All these methods: Lucid Dreaming, Out Of Body Experiences - OOBEs and Phasingenables
you to experience other realities, dimensions, parallel universes
(whatever metaphor you want to use here)
which feel just as real as your present 'awake physical reality', except your thoughts are manifested instantly
You never cease to be because we all exist in a continuum of consciousness.
The experienced astral explorer will tell you that you are not
really in your body in any reality, be it physical or semi-physical.
There is no
real solidity in any reality. Reality is a perceptual construct; maya, an ilusion.
During your awake physical reality, you are really projecting your consciousness into your 'perceived' body.
This illusion that you are in your body is dissolved during 'phasing
I usually suggest people try OOBE
because after a few times, there will be no
doubts in one's mind that you just did not
and imagined it.
The 'frame of reference
' before you felt you got 'out of your body' continued from exactly what and where you were doing/being/located
in physical reality; sense of continuity. In the OOBE
state, you can be just as aware as you are sitting in front of your computer reading my post;
some people aren't because they lack practise.
Like with all abilities, with more practise and intention,
you can improve your degree of awareness, control, clarity and recall of experiences in:Lucid Dreaming, Out Of Body Experiences and PhasingWhat is a Dream?http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_astral_projection_experiences/was_it_sleep_paralysis_or_dream-t36164.0.html;msg298611#msg298611Dreams
can be grouped into 2 main categories:
1- Lucid Dream: vivid experiences, engagement of all, most, or more of your senses, feels real.
2- Non-Lucid Dream: dull experience, little engagement of your senses, does not
feel so real.
However, lucid dreaming
is similar to OOBE
, but has no frame of reference
We all experience different realities, dimensions because we are consciousness, another metaphor, spiritual beings.
When we are not
focused on this 'perceived' waking physical reality, we allow ourselves to experience other realities in our sleep,
or in meditative states of consciousness. Some people just don't have good recall of their dreams, or they dismiss the significance of dreams.Phasing
, is a method that while fully awake, you can just withdraw your senses,
and let your attention be drawn into your own mindscape.
You do not
need to achieve the state of 'Mind Awake, Body Asleep
' of OOBE
' ; some people find this easier to do.
After sucessfully achieving phasing, you know that you are indeed not
in your body, because upon allowing your attention to be drawn into another reality,
you will be experiencing it, with real body sensations. Here, the physical rules may be less limiting eg. you can fly and teleport yourself at will etc.
You can meet people, have discusiions etc just like physical reality. Perhaps you experience another body expression with different abilities.

There are many
people continually reporting OOBEs
, you can read about their experiences here:http://www.astralpulse.com/forums/welcome_to_out_of_body_experiences-b14.0/Note:
For the ease of summarising these above methods, I have grouped and explained them simply.
One can go into detail and list the properties of Lucid Dreaming, OOBEs & Phasing and
how they are distinct from each other, but this only becomes important once the 'astral explorer' wants to maintain
greater awareness, control & clarity on what is happening.
