The Woman Who Can Will Herself Out Of Her Body

After a class on out-of-body experiences, a psychology graduate student at the University of Ottawa came forward to researchers to say that she could have these voluntarily, usually before sleep. "She appeared surprised that not everyone could experience this," wrote the scientists in a study describing the case, published in February in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.

The most exciting thing about this case, to me, is "the possibility that this phenomenon may have a significant incidence but [is] unreported because people do not think this is exceptional," as the authors wrote. "Alternatively," they continued, "the ability might be present in infancy but is lost without regular practice. This would be reminiscent of the discovery and eventual study of synesthesia that some researchers now hypothesized is more prevalent in young people or can be developed."

Those are fascinating suggestions--both that these out-of-body experiences may be more common than previously thought, or could be learned during a critical window early in life.


I'm sure we are born with a lot of abilities that are never trained.

I'd be concerned about what walks in while you're gone.

I did it a few times in my younger days but not for a long time because it's a little scary.

You helped me a lot with the RV'ing tips. When I'm in the Alpha state, I can see all kinds of images, mostly fuzzy and blurred, but occasionally,shockingly sharp.
The most difficult part is staying awake when it happens so I can recall what I've seen. chuckle.gif
It's a work in progress, but it gets better as you work on it.

practice get"s it of course

but sometimes ,,, I have crap bothering me ,,,
then I see the event to come ,,

and wake up the next day all bent out of shape .

Never fear that something will walk in while you are out

because you are not totally out ,, you are just extending out and tapping
into whats out there

like wire tapping , or ,,

it can be fun

Holding to ground is a defense shield .

which we all have a very distinct need for .

I waded in before i ever knew to be defensive .

that's the way of the Child , they do not always apply enough caution
in contemplation of the action they are about to endeavor .

The child has not yet been conditioned to the fears of parental guidance .

luckily for me ,,, i was an inconvient birth for the parent who raised me ,,,

so ,,,
she paid little attention to installing in me ,, fear of consequence ,,,

ergo , I was left free of the stigma and paranoia , held for such metaphysical experiences .

The Churches had not had access to my consciousness

so the fear pimping they sell ,,,,

was not in my awareness .

all things seemed naturally in place .

I knew about authority ,,,

however , I thought it to be a pompous ass ,,, and paid it no heed , unless ,,,

well , you just have to be a sneak to get past authority .

" God will send you to hell for that "

was not said around me until after the fact ,,,

and those who said it , looked crazy to me .

and they were .

" Where no Monster exist ,,, they will create one for you to fear "

fear ,,,

if they can get you to FEAR

they can control you and your money , which is what they were after anyway .

A Kind and loving , generous God , does not burn you in hell , for leaving your body
to seek him out .

and not for leaving your body to seek answers or truth .

That's a Hillbilly God that burns you in hell .

his name is not Zeus

it's Zeke

and he picks his teeth with a screwdriver .

I wasn't serious you know

i was just goofing

" song "

" She came in through the bathroom window ,,,,

" She said ,,, she'd always been a dancer ,,,
worked in 15 clubs a day ,,,,

So I quit the Police department

she tried her best to help me

she could steal ,,,, but she could not rob

Now she such a Florentine Wonder ,,,,

My understanding is nothing walks in. There is a cord that keeps our astral body attached to our physical body. If it breaks, then you're dead, but it doesn't break or let go unless you get hit by a car or you've just died from somethin'.

Let's make 5G safe by installing zirconium ceramic bricks to the cell masts. It will save the providers billions of dollars quickly by reducing interference.

Can you ask yourself "Why do I love discovering how my protons can experience Loving Kindness?"
