TMI stands for The Monroe Institute. You can find their website and see what they offer. The founder, Robert Monroe, created and researched an audio technology called Hemispheric Synchronization that supports an individual in focusing their mind and moving into different frequencies which can assist in having OBEs and other states of consciousness.

Similar audio support forms can be found online for free, such as binaural beats and isochronic tones. These are not absolute requisites to have an OBE, but many people find them very useful.

Some further ideas:

When you do your OBE practice, it is certainly a benefit to minimize distractions as much as you can, but we can only do so much. At TMI, we have the CHEC units. Single beds in enclosed units with a black draw curtain that cuts out all light, if you wish. The entire facility is pretty quiet to begin with and with the headphones on, outside disturbances have been nearly eliminated. But you still have to deal with your own personal issues- physical comfort, itches, muscle stress, etcetera. Then there are the mental distractions, distracting thoughts, doubt, boredom... at some point you have to learn and develop the discipline to ignore the remaining annoyances and get on with the session as best you can. With practice, you get much better with this. Back home in the real world, there are simply too many distractions beyond our immediate control, so you do the best you can. Iíve learned to ignore the more minor issues but had more than a few excellent OBEs cut short by police sirens, trash trucks and kids playing basketball nearby. You learn to do what you can do.

The little physical issues, especially itches, seem to occur almost like a small test of your determination. Itís a phenomenon that I have noticed and heard from others. You learn to ignore it, but it strangely pops up from time to time.

This advice is just what I needed! But what does TMI stand for? What are Hemi-Sync sounds? So many things I don't know... That's why I keep coming back here!  grin

Welcome back!

My perspective is this-

There is no answer I can give you that guarantees your physical body does not somehow interfere with your OBE or the attempt at it. You have to work that out for yourself. One answer may be that it is simply a matter of focus and determination and Intent. And this often has to be learned over time and a kind of trial by error basis. To some degree, that has been my own experience.

At TMI, I learned that physical body issues...itching, discomfort, a sneeze, adjusting my position...even sitting up to scribble some notes...were actually not that difficult to deal with. Now the lack of difficulty may have to do with the High group energy of the place, the supportive aspect of the Hemi-Sync sounds...more than a few reasons. This is not to say that you cannot find success on your can be done as I and many others here have testified in our own private and personal experiences.

Your Intent may have to be reconsidered; trying to communicate with certain transitioned persons may be too high a goal for a variety of reasons. It may require a gradual process or it may simply be an unavailable experience, at least right now. Iím not saying donít try, just understand that it is a big experience to ask for. I have tried for several years, in several ways, including being in the very strong TMI environment, to connect with a friend who passed seven years ago. I canít do it and the best Iíve gotten is a vague ďknowingĒ that she is okay. So, after several tries, I realize that I just have to accept that response.

I hope that helps to some degree; simplify your request and pay close attention to the quality of your Focus. There is a wealth of understanding to be found within that.

It's been quite some time since my last post. I was distracted by my studies and now the Coronavirus, so I have postponed my attempts at an OBE. But now the virus is getting worse.  cry So many are infected in the US... I am growing concerned for the high risk people in my life. I don't know what's going to happen. All I know is that I'm ready to try again. Now that I have something to actually be afraid of, you'd think this fear test wouldn't be an issue. I even have a new location I'm willing to try besides my bedroom. But besides that strange creature that keeps preventing me from having an experience, I am afraid my own body could interfere. Let's say I actually do manage to have an OBE and was also somehow able to pass my fear test. I get to where I want to be and am able to talk to those that I care about on the other side. But then a giant sneeze or hiccup could shatter that experience. Talk about a whole lot of effort for nothing. The body is ridiculous sometimes. It's more, shall we say, disruptive than the parabody. What can I do to bypass this issue? How do I guarantee my own body does not disrupt my experience? I'm sure there are things I could do in the physical, but what could I do in the astral to stop this from happening? Is there a way I could 'mute' communication between the parabody and body?

   Another thing this could was some kind of bizarre experience that led to a "healing". Today, my back hasn't hurt at all.

That was my first thought while reading the nurse pulling the bullets out of your back. And when I read the above, I was like, yes, exactly. Dreams are highly symbolic.

 For the past week now I have been using a technique upon going to sleep, whereas you hold your focus on a single point just outside of your physical body until you lose consciousness and drift off to sleep. 3 of the nights it has led to bouts of SP (Sleep Paralysis), the other nights it has led to very vivid LDs (Lucid Dreams). Like with most us here, many of my most vivid LDs come just before I awaken for the day. Some can lead to what I call "re-scripting", which is replays of the Dream scenario over and over again until I got it right. Right according to who? I haven't been able to answer that yet!  huh I don't know if I ever will be able to.

 One of these LDs had me in some kind of Marketplace", what in Ancient Greece was called a "Agora". I didn't get to see my physical body, so I can't really say what I actually looked like in this one. I must have fit in though.

 I was selling my wares amongst many other people and all of a sudden a shot rang out through the air. A man a few booths down from me fell to the ground, blood trickling from his mouth. There was another shot and another person went down. We all ducked for cover. My stand was closest to the entrance and I could see the hills in front of the Marketplace. For some reason, I thought Afghanistan, even though I have never been there at least in this physical lifetime. A few other men now were crawling towards me. They were armed and looking for the shooter. My guess was it was a Sniper. We all kept crawling towards the field n front of us, looking for the shooter. After crawling and ducking while searching, I finally saw the guy. We surrounded him and I took him down. I didn't obliterate him though. I obeyed the physical ruleset of this place and for some reason I knew I had to apprehend him quickly but in the least non violent way I could.

 The situation then ended or so I thought it did. The people of the Marketplace were surrounding the shooter and all of a sudden I heard rat and tat, tat, tat and I felt something hitting my back. As I fell I saw the local men there had grabbed this guy again. I guess he has broke free from one of them, grabbed one of their own automatic guns and shot me in the back, not once, but what I felt like 3-5 times. I was on the ground now. I wasn't in a lot of pain though. All I felt when he was shooting me was some kind of dull thuds, like I had some kind of bulletproof vest on, which I didn't.

 The next thing I know I am lying on a table face down. A woman is using some kind of tongs on me and pulling the bullets out of my back. Once again, no excruciating pain, just a dull ache and I can tell exactly the spots she is working on.

 Then I wake up. But the strange thing is, my back is actually hurting in the same dull pain, in the exact same areas that I was shot and that lady had taken the bullets out of my back. I laid on my bed for about ten minutes trying to not only get my bearings, but also trying to make sense of all of this. Yes, I know, I used the word "trying", but like happens when you use that word, I too failed. I couldn't make any sense of that at all. I then got up to use the bathroom, like many of us do upon awaking in the morning and the pain subsided.

 While trying to make sense of all of this I wondered if I may have rolled over strange in my sleep, causing my back to be twisted in some way and then my consciousness created a Dream scenario to accompany that ache. That's pretty far fletched, but I wanted to look at this in more "sane" person's view first, before entertaining anything else. Why I would even bring up that is because I have experienced many times, being in some kind of "bathroom" needing to go and when I left the Dream and awoke, I really needed to go, lol. I took it that my physical need to go to the bathroom played out in my Dream scenario as well, like some kind of message. The only problem with the hypothesis is that when I awoke with the pain in the back after being shot, that pain did go away.

 Another thing this could was some kind of bizarre experience that led to a "healing". Today, my back hasn't hurt at all. For the past months now it has been in pain. Not the areas that I was supposedly shot though. It's always been a deep, sometimes sharp pain in the spine. So yes, it could have been some kind of elaborate ruse to get me on the table. Who knows?  huh Like I said, I am entertaining all thoughts on this.  

 Last night's LD turned rated XXX very quickly and got completely out of control. Öand yes, there was physical effects from it, but most Men awaken at "attention" as it is. That is a physiological thing though!  grin

 I have had other experiences in the past that had a lasting effect for either a short duration or even the entire day. But most of those had more of "emotional" effect. In other words, they set the mood for the day!

 I would love to hear your thoughts or even your own experiences, if any, with this.

 Thank You!  smiley

 That's definitely my kind of experience!  cool cool cool

 I too have been using that technique each night now. I added "rhythmic breathing" to it though. Example: On the inhale, focus over top of my head, on the exhale, focus on the bottom of my feet. I only use that as a "primer" though. Years ago, I would hyperventilate if I focused on a breathing technique. Nowadays, I can use it at the beginning of the targeted point process, but I quickly let it go. Our breathing changes as we relax and go to sleep, so to keep that focus there is very hard to do.

 I would gladly trade you your awesome experience for what I have been experiencing the last few days. My experiences haven't involved SP or even leaving the body. Mine have been incredibly vivid LDs, that I figure must be occurring in some kind of "lower Astral Plane". (I am going to be making a new thread in the LD section pertaining to a unique experience I had 2 days ago).

Not against on killing/riding the virus but I rather simply send good vibes/light or what have you out with good intention. This virus could be what we need or what is needed for some. I rather trust something higher than myself to make the decision as 'they' will know what to do more so than I.

I have this idea of doing visualization to get rid of this virus . Coast to coast did a group prayer a few days ago . I thought I might try some visualization to kill this virus .If any one hear is interested we might start a new thread . I just started one over on SF and will see where it goes, and will see how well this visualazation works on the virus .
