As some of you may already know, I've been trying to achieve a full OBE experience for the past 2 years. During this time, I've only experienced three definitive OBE's, the last one being the most successful.
This morning, I attempted an OBE after waking up. I laid on my back, relaxed, and imagined parts of my body "turning off". Basically, the active parts of my body were lighting with activity, I then visualized it turning black as if to represent that part of my body going into a relaxed state. I then began to relax even further by drifting off. When stray thoughts came, I imagined them as frames on a roll of film and I then became conscious of their intrusion. In this way, the stray thoughts would still come but I would be successfully aware and wouldn't fall asleep.
I stayed this way for an unknown amount of time waiting for the vibrational state. It would come but oh so faintly and for only a fleeting moment. Once I felt my physical body as being nothing more than a bag, I tried to move/float/separate. I moved my head around. I felt as if my "second head" was moving ahead of my physical head. Almost as if they were out of sync. I basically tried as best as I can to move my second head away from the physical without moving too much (physically). After failing to separate, I decided to relax even more and wait for the vibrations. They came but only in my arms and parts of my legs. I imagined the vibrations moving all over my body but I did not feel them. Then, they went away. After this, I decided it was time to get out of bed and get on with my day.
I didn't succeed in having an OBE but the sensations were unmistakable. It should be noted that many of my family members were awake at the time and many disturbances were happening from noise to people walking in the room. I take this as a good sign in that despite all these obstacles, I was able to get somewhere. What I want to know is, how close am I to inducing OBE's on will? And I also want some advice/elaboration on the vibrational state and the separation techniques.
Thank you all and I wish you all success in your endeavors.
