How to Have OBEs

Curious about how to have OBEs? There’s no art form that tells you how to have OBEs. You just have to basically figure out what works best for you. When it comes to how to have OBEs, though, lots of experts have tuned in with what they’ve seen work over and over again. Learning from what the experts have to say can help you when you’re trying to figure out how to have OBEs.

I learned how to have OBEs only with time and patience. For me, it was just as difficult, it seemed, as learning to have lucid dreams was at first. Keep at it, though, and you’ll learn how to have OBEs so well that you’ll be able to have them on a regular basis. Here are the basic steps you need to take when you’re ready to learn how to have OBEs:

Relax. This is super hard for some people, actually. The fact that my brain never shuts off is part of the reason that lucid dreaming and OBEs were difficult for me at first, I think. Are you like that? If so, it’s a good idea to put some relaxation techniques into play in your everyday life. You need to be dedicated if you want to learn how to have OBEs, and part of that dedication means being willing to learn to relax on a daily basis so that you can relax more deeply when you’re ready for your OBE.

One of the things I did was to start taking yoga classes. Learning about the mind-body connection and being able to use my body’s movement to calm my mind has been invaluable to me. You can also learn to relax through meditation techniques and other mind-clearing activities.

Once you learn how to relax, you can start having OBEs by relaxing in a sitting or lying position. You should be comfortable and should focus on completely relaxing your body and your mind. Visualization can help here, too. Basically, your goal in relaxing is to get your body to fall asleep while your mind remains awake and alert so that you can pull your astral body away from your physical body, which takes concentration.

Feel the Vibrations. When you’re learning how to have OBEs, the vibrational state might be hard to achieve at first. And once you do get there, it can be a little overwhelming. Basically, in this phase, you’ll start to feel or hear vibrations in your body – their intensity varies from person to person. You’ll want to continue to concentrate through this stage, and you may start to feel your body becoming paralyzed. This is normal, since you’re at a liminal phase between sleep and awake.

Once you start feeling the vibrations, you can begin to pull your astral body out of your physical body. There are lots of ways to do this, and how to have an OBE depends on your preferences and how your body works. The key is to remain calm and to focus on leaving the body. Don’t look back at your physical body right away. It’s a cool sensation when you can do that later, but you need to really establish the OBE first.

When you’re fully outside of your own body, you’ve learned how to have OBEs. Don’t be surprised if at first your OBE doesn’t last very long. As you progress in your learning of how to have OBEs and what techniques work best for you, you’ll be able to control your emotions and concentration so you can have longer and more fulfilling OBEs. For now, just enjoy the fact that you can travel outside of your own body!
